**NEW VIDEO RELEASE** Bob Barker gets sandwiched, drenched and assaulted by flash grenades from the Whaling poachers and doesn't surrender! PLEASE SHARE!!!
The Japanese whaling fleet, poaching whales from Antarctica's Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, creates a collision as they attempt an illegal refuelling operation. Sea Shepherd Ship Bob Barker peacefully blocks the whalers' factory ship, Nisshin Maru, from refuelling.
The Bob Barker holds their ground, and non-violently "sits-in" to obstruct the illegal refuelling operation by the poachers. The Nisshin Maru's Captain Tomoyuki Ogawa moves in, crushing the Bob Barker between itself and the fuel tanker Sun Laurel while blasting the bridge windows with high-powered water cannons. The Nisshin Maru also deploys an exploding "flash bang" concussion grenade, which detonates in a fireball on the deck of the fuel tanker.
This video clearly shows the fault of the collision on the Nisshin Maru. According to COLREGS, the Bob Barker had the right of way, and the Nisshin Maru had no right to move closer to the Bob Barker.
