Environmental Pirates?

Not long ago I posted on direct action being mounted by environmentalists in defense of forests in the Pacific Northwest. Today I discovered this slide show and related stories [1] [2]
in The Guardian that depict the conflict between environmentalists and Japanese "research" whalers in the Antarctic. Of course, the Japanese are calling the environmentalists "terrorists."

Another set of images, some of which I find quite good, can be found here from photojournalist Paul Taggart:

The rest of his work is is worth a look through as well.
