Whale Wars 2008-2009: Japanese Deny Using Weapons
Here is an article about the Japanese saying they did not use weapons against the anti-whaling activists. The activists have claimed that the Japanese injured two of their crew by using a "water cannon, concussion grenades, acoustic weapons and threw brass and lead balls." The Japanese only admit to using hoses on the activists after issuing a warning. The Japanese claim that the activists threw dye and strong smelling liquid at the boats and that is the only thing I am sure is true, as that is a known tactic of the activists.
