Sea Shepherd: Whalers using Weapons in violation of Antarctic Treaty
Takver - Sydney Indymedia
Anti-whaling activists from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship Steve Irwin have alledged that Japaneses whalers are using military grade anti-personnel weapons in violation of the Antarctic Treaty. According to a Sea Shepherd media release "The factory ship the Nisshin Maru and the two harpoon vessels in the fleet are equipped with Long Range Acoustical Devices (LRAD). This is a military grade weapon system that sends out mid to high frequency sound waves designed to disorient and possibly incapacitate personnel. It is basically an anti-personnel weapons system."
