Whale Movement Strategies

There's a man on a bicycle riding around the 48th annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission. He's towing a long narrow trailer with a life-size model of a butchered pilot whale.

I think he's come to Aberdeen from Austria (or maybe Germany?), but I'm nut sure why. The people who oppose whaling certainly don't need their opinions reinforced. My Norwegian whaling friends were similarly unmoved: "You definitely couldn't move that much meat with a bicycle, probably not even with a Harley. It's not at all practical."

There seems to be little--if any--understanding between the opposing camps, and the international situation is desperate as usual.
