Film Peeks Inside The Life Of An Eco-Terrorist [Video]


What does an eco-terrorist look like?

Dirty and dread-locked? Living in a tree? Chained to a bulldozer? Picketing government buildings and factory farms?

A new film, Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist, gives viewers a first-hand look at the unpredictable life of an activist who dedicated his life to defending innocent animals.

Featuring over 30 years of unreleased footage taken by Peter Jay Brown, Confessions provides a peek behind the scenes at the daily struggles of the infamous Sea Shepherd Conservation Society activists–men and women who spend weeks and even months fighting illegal fishing, whaling and sea hunting on the open ocean.

SSCS activists have dedicated their lives to decades of campaigns to halt the atrocities committed worldwide against sea mammals. After watching the film, one cannot help but be inspired to go out and create change, working to make a difference in the world.

“This funny, insightful and controversial film was three decades in the making by Peter Brown, a Sea Shepherd insider and film maker whose sense of humor and special talents allowed him to venture where no other film maker has been able to go – into the heart of oceanic ecological activism,” said Sea Shepherd Captain Paul Watson.

The film is slated to be released next month.

I was just about to say the same thing as Asha and Olivia before me...people like Peter Brown and Paul Watson are not terrorists for goodness sake! The real eco-terrorists, the wreckers of the environment and it's inhabitants, are the big greedy corporations, the factory ships and the gov'ts that allow the destruction to go on unabated. Brown is doing himself no favours by naming the film "Confessions of an eco-terrorist". He should be offended at such a term!

the eco terriorist movement is sickening. The fact that activists like the one in the video can be labled a terrorist is beyond me. It just goes to show that anybody who challenges the standard for what is morally right ends up bullied in the end. For a country built on "morals" and "values" why do we constantly do things that are morally wrong?

I HATE eco-terrorism, you know, the kind that destroys the planet, and I think that Orwell's book 1984's doublespeak was a foreshadowing of this. Stopping whalers is NOT eco-terrorism. I support SS with all my heart. If some confused jerk calls these warriors eco-terrorists, I will still stand proudly on their side, the side of eco-terraism, vs eco-terrorism.

I thought that an "ecoterrorist" was someone who destroyed the ecosystem for kicks, these people are NOT terrorists, just another label by corporations to justify their destruction of the planet for profit.
