Some things never change: Greens demand action against Japan whaling

Greens demand action against Japan whaling:

"The Greens are demanding the federal government use submarine contracts to pressure Japan out of sending whaling ships to the Southern Ocean. The Japanese government says it will dispatch a "research" whaling mission to the Southern Ocean on Tuesday. The announcement came as Attorney-General George Brandis told parliament Australia was making diplomatic representations at "the highest levels" in a bid to get Japan to change its mind. He told the Senate on Monday the government would consider sending a Customs patrol vessel to the Southern Ocean if talks weren't successful. Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson says Japan are "thumbing their nose" at the Australian people."
