As much as I don't like the idea of whaling for “research” or any other reason I can't help but cheer for the Japs.

Remember this boat being sunk by the French Navy.

“the Yushin Maru 3 intentionally rammed the Bob Barker penetrating its hull and endangering the lives of its crew.”

Good. But didn’t sink it?...The Japanese used to be better than that.

It sank!

Million out of work, and these free-loading hippies are paid to interfere.

Sheesh!

These guys should switch to something more sensible. Like going into the woods with antlers and a white tail to protest deer season...

The collision at the very end of the video at the link is pretty wild. Thanks for posting.

Anything named The Bob Barker should be rammed on general principle. If Mother Theresa named her convent “the Bob Barker”, it should have been flattened to the ground the next day.

I’m confused- the article says that the ecoterrorist boat was the Bob Barker, but the accompanying video is about a boat called Steve Irwin...........

LOL. And never get between a whaling ship and its target prey!
Especially in a synthetic fibre craft.

So, it being international waters and all, what’s stopping the Japanese from treating ‘em like Somali pirates?

The collision at the very end, involving the Steve Irwin is another related incident showing the bow of the Irwin ramming a Japanese ship. Note that, according to the voice over, the eco-terrorists deny that the collision in that clip (the end) ever occurred!
The first part of the tape appears to be the collision referred to by the title - where the stern of the Japanese ship hits the side of the other.
