with his state of record he would be in prison in Austria! Admitting that he has caused a dammage only in the last two years of 70 Million! And that only to protect the whales! But he does much more think about the seals! Criminal organisation?

Eco-terrorism also called ecoterrorism or green terrorism is terrorism conducted for the sake of ecological, environmental, or animal rights causes. The word is a neologism and its applicability is contested.

Eco-terrorism is defined by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation's Domestic Terrorism Section as "the use or threatened use of violence of a criminal nature against innocent victims or property by an environmentally-oriented, subnational group for environmental-political reasons, or aimed at an audience beyond the target, often of a symbolic nature." [1] Damage caused by environmentalist sabotage from 1980 to 1999 is estimated to have amounted to $42.8 million.[2] Since 2003 the FBI has attributed "eco-terrorists" with 200 million dollars in property damage. [3]

The term is controversial among environmentalists, animal-rights activists and others, who see it as a propaganda term devised by law-enforcement to criminalize or marginalize their protests. Paul Watson, the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, has presented his own definition of the word in a commentary criticizing Japanese whalers: "an act that terrorizes other species and threatens the ecological systems of the planet".[4]
