This is it boys and girls, this is not a drill. The
Makah whalers are gearing up to slaughter another whale. Here is the
latest news straight from the front lines:
- A few days ago Neah Bay was practically a ghost town.
Today (Oct. 14) 25 or more Coast Guard personnel are milling around the
- The CG just performed a practice boat seizure in the harbor.
- The harpoon is in the canoe right now.
- According to Bret Siler, the Coast Guard boat Cuttyhunk left Astoria
today at 4:00 pm heading for Port Angeles.
Bill Moss and World Whale Police (http://www.worldwhalepolice.org)
are on the water and protesters are gathering at the Sekiu headquarters.
If you have a boat, bring it. Stay outside the 500-yard exclusion zone
and don't run into any other boats and you'll be safe. If you don't have
a boat, come out anyway. Sekiu is a very small town, ask at Olson's
Marina for the Peninsula Citizens for the Protection of Whales (http://safepassing.org/pcpw)
and they will be able to tell you where the land protesters are. Sekiu
is located at approximately mile marker 16 off highway 112.
If you have any contacts with newspapers, radio, or TV,
give them a call. The whalers are trying to keep this one quiet because
they botched up the last one.
The fall migration doesn't start until December 1st, so
they will be attempting to kill a whale that has taken up residence here
in the waters off Washington State.
