This petition is to say to Australia's Kevin Rudd and Peter Garrett's labor party:
I am disgusted at your betrayal of your fellow Australians & anti-whaling supporters across the world, and STOP your harrassment against Sea Shepherds Captain Paul Watson and First Officer Peter Hammarstedt so that; as 'the only organisation on earth with the courage & guts to confront the deceptive japanese government illegal whale slaughters, they will always have right of welcomed entry visas to Australia as they have always had in the past to be able to pursue their passion to bring to an end the injustice happening to earths marine life at the hands of a international law breaking, lying and deceptive japanese government.
Why? Because back in 2007 Rudd & Garrett promised to get tough on illegal Japanese whaling as part of their campaign to win the supporting vote of the Australian people and admiration by the rest of the world!
Since then Rudd and Garrett have demonstrated that they have done far less for the whales than former Environment Minister Ian Campbell had done.
The Rudd Government has turned its back on all the 'get tough on whaling promises' they made before the election and has now become more submissively loyal to the demands of the Japanese Government than to the concerns of the Australian people that elected them.
Mr Watson's ship, the Steve Irwin, has been docked in Sydney's Circular Quay in recent days as part of an Australian tour ahead of the December mission to Antarctica.
"I will be there, visa or no visa,'' Mr Watson wrote.
"Peter Hammarstedt will also be there. No power short of a bullet will prevent us from returning to the Southern Ocean in December to once again cut the illegal Japanese quota in half and to negate their illicit profits.
''... I am confident that the Australian people will send their voice to Canberra to support us and the whales. Rudd and Garrett need to be reminded that it was not the Japanese whalers who voted them into power, it was Australian citizens, and Australians want the bloody slaughter in the Southern Ocean ended.''
