Anti-Whaling Activists Released from Japanese Vessel

Two activists and members of the group, Sea Shepherd, were released by the Japanese Whaling Ship Yushin Maru two days after being taken captive after boarding the ship to deliver a letter to the ships Captain denouncing the vessels whaling activities. Sea Shepherds and unaffiliated Greenpeace crews have been tailing a number of Japanese whaling ships over the last couple of weeks in an attempt to stop what most consider to be illegal whaling sanctioned by Japan.
