Australia’s Coalition and Labor leaders have the blood of harpooned pregnant whales on their hands after another slaughter of defenceless Australian minke whales by illegal Japanese killers, Bob Brown said in Hobart today.

333 gentle minkes met an horrific death in Australia’s Antarctic backyard this month because Malcolm Turnbull, Josh Frydenberg and Bill Shorten did nothing. Our nation’s Federal Court says the Japanese harpooners are criminals. The World Court has found them guilty. But our politicians, instead of sending a naval vessel to confront the criminals, turned a blind eye. ‘Tut tutting does nothing’ Brown said.
