Posted Wed May 6 2009: from Guardian (UK):
Agenda 21 Sinks Norwegian Whaler http://apocadocs.com/s.pl?1241631488
"We came to Henningsvaer. We saw the Skarbakk. We sank the bastard." This was the message left by the anonymous activists who scuttled the Norwegian whaling ship the Skarbakk last month. On April 23 a group identifying themselves only as Agenda 21 named after the UN programme for sustainable development that was often talked about in the 90s but seems to have been completely forgotten about today crept on to the boat, anchored in Henningsvaer harbour, and used an adjustable spanner to open the salt water intake and flood the engine room. Before the ship hit bottom fire crews had got to it. However, the ship had already filled with sea water, so damage was extensive and will certainly be expensive. And this is not the first time it's happened.... The Skarbakk is the fourth ship they've sunk in 12 years. Norwegian whalers pay huge insurance premiums as a result of their campaign, but it hasn't had much impact on whaling. The amount of whales caught by Norway has risen from 280 in 1994 to 592 in 2007.

Much as I applaud the sentiment, this is not the way to win Norwegian hearts and minds.
