Australia are outrageous. After the whites who got there exterminated 97% of the humans they met there, and continue to discriminate against the few who are left, they want to talk about saving whales. A nation of PETA types. Disgusting. If an African male and a deer are lying on the highway victims of an accident fighting for life, PETA types will help the deer. Australia now want to save whales while they continue to cause the deaths of first Australians by their policies.
