A live interview with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Captain Paul Watson, on the bridge of the "Stephen Irwin," in the Southern Sea between New Zealand and Antarctica. SSCS is blocking the harpoons of Japanese whalers -- on the occasion of WikiLeaks' revelation of a 9 Nov 2009 State Department cable collaborating with Japanese fisheries and urging revocation of Sea Shepherd's tax-exemption.
WikiLeaks cable(s) on US and multinational oil interests in Nigeria, and indigineous suppression, including a "Making Contact" documentary on Nigeria from the national Radio Project.
Credits: Hosted by Robert Knight, and produced with Kaitlin Prest and Michael G. Haskins.
Notes: The program features a live, 3 Jan 2011, interview with Sea Shepherd Captain Paul Watson, during an anti-whaling operation in the Southern Sea, just after WikiLeaks' release of the 9 Nov 2009 State Department cable detailing the Tokyo Embassy's consultation with Japanese fisheries officials, and promise of a review or revocation of Sea Shepherd's tax-exempt status.
The broadcast includes an acoustic reading of the cable, and Watson's response that the US action may involve an impeachable offence.
