The Australian Greens were stunned by the footage of the Japanese whaling ship Shonan Maru No. 2 ramming the Sea Shepherd's stealth boat Ady Gil in the Southern Ocean.
In the wake of news the Japanese whaling fleet hired Australian planes from Hobart and Albany to track the Sea Shepherd ships' movements, the Greens will introduce a bill banning activities associated with whaling in Australia when the Senate resumes.
