The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society are a non-profit animal rights organization that is actively involved in the protection of sea wildlife. They are currently out at sea intervening with the Japanese whaling ships with the hope of saving whales and stopping the illegal trade altogether. Their previous campaigns have cost the whaling trade millions of dollars, and their recent campaign has successfully prevented the death of any whales.
Brisbane orchestral art-rock band, The Red Paintings, collaborated with the Sea Shepherd to record a Midnight Oil Cover of "Beds are Burning" now called "Whales are Dying" with lyrics written by Sea Shepherd's founder, Captain Paul Watson & Trash McSweeney and backing vocals sung by ships crew the night before their ship, the 'Steve Irwin', left Australia for their latest campaign in Antarctic waters.
"With Peter Garrett being the current Australian Minister for the Environment who is allowing the Japanese to kill whales in our own backyard – the Australian Antarctic whale sanctuary, the irony of using a Midnight Oil cover parody of " Beds are Burning" called " Whales are Dying " we thought was perfect and straight to the point THE TIME TO STOP JAPAN FROM KILLING WHALES IS LONG OVERDUE" Said Trash McSweeney, song writer for The Red Paintings.
