Heath’s Anti-Whaling Video

Whales roaming the high seas, hunting humans.

Absolute genius.  And it was directed by our very own, the late Heath Ledger.

Apparently he was incredibly passionate about animal rights, and an advocate for Sea Shepherd, who have worked tirelessly to stop the Japanese whaling in Australia’s Antarctic waters.

All the video  needs now is for a giant white human (doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, I know) to come and shear off the Captain’s leg (or flukes); for him to get a replacement peg-leg made out of human teeth; for them to spend the next few years chasing said white human around the globe; and for the whole cacophony to end in a vortex of swirling, frothy doom and a slowly wheeling albatross.

It could be called, Dick Moby, or, the Human.

Animal Rights Law

Factory Farming

A topic close to my heart since I wrote my Law Thesis on International Law & Whaling.

I just listened to an amazing guy – Bruce Wagman – who works full time as an Animal Lawyer in a top tier San Francisco law firm. Can you imagine there being a full-time animal lawyer in an Australian firm? I don’t think so.

He’s been brought out here to raise awareness about Animal Law as an emerging field and to highlight the horrors of factory farming and the lunacy of animals (living creatures) having no legal status. They are legally INVISIBLE.
