Anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd says this year's protest in Antarctic waters will be the strongest ever, despite legal woes that have sent its leader into hiding.

This is real war people, a war for our planet, our Countries and our own self worth. If you will notice who it is that is behind bars or on the run, it's the whistle blowers like Bradley Manning, the Truth sayers like Julian Assange, the protectors of all our relations like Capt. Watson.

While they they are attacked the Heartless Ones who destroy our lands like Monsanto go on doing their dasdardly deeds, the Kochroach Brothers whose toxic pollution is causing cancer, the Ryan types that would have all our Elders and poor children without medical, food, or shelter, the Greedy Ones on Wall Street that continue on while these men, and let us not forget about Leonard Peltier in prison for almost 40 standing up for the native people.

Then we have the many women around the world that are also standing up to the Heartless Ones, like Dr. Stein and her VP, the 3,500 indigenous women leaders from 21 Latin American countries met in the highland city of Puno, Peru, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, for the Abya Yala Summit of Indigenous Women.

The unknown women doing important things around the world like Matilde Lucio who said, “Before I knew nothing about politics – I was nobody. I was ashamed to even speak my own lanaguage. Now I hold meetings with Government officials and tell them what to do.” Or Rachel Carson who wrote the book Silent Spring described the devastating effect that pesticides were having on the environment. Or Julia "Butterfly" Hill extremely dedicated to social and environmental causes. They may not be household names but all have been in the fight.

There are some real choices people and there is no more sitting on the sidelines. If you will not vote for truly green with Dr. Stein or Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party, you best light a fire under these Corporate Owned Parties you all keep voting in. Best get out there in the streets and start pushing your Demands, best start getting others around you to join in, best roll those sleeves up. For as Justice Party Presidential Candidate Rocky Anderson said, “We keep expecting elected officials will do the right thing, and the fact is they never do unless they’re pushed.”

I very much appreciate that these courageous people put themselves in harm's way, and risk their freedom, to help save the world. People are so harmful, so wasteful. I thank these heros.

Paul Watson knows its not about him its' about the cause. Great to hear Jeff Hanson has stepped up, Sea Shepard is about the preservation of .mammals etc. Therefore the organisation MUST be robust, & have an army of leaders to call upon in a moments notice. Thank-you Sea Shepard for grasping this concept & running with it!

Big shout out to Sam Simons!

What fighters! So brave! Sometimes I wish I could join them on their ships and be an active part of this fight for saving our world and it's animals! But I just sit at my desk, signing petitions and trying to comfort my friends and make them smile...That's if for now...In the future, who knows?
