The statue carries a pair of scales and a harpoon. They demand an end to the political persecution of the 'Tokyo Two', two Greenpeace anti-whaling activists, Junichi Sato and Toru Suzuki, and an end to Japan's whaling in the Southern Ocean. The two Greenpeace activists exposed corruption in the taxpayer-funded whaling industry, but were themselves arrested in a crackdown on Greenpeace itself in Tokyo. A quarter of a million Greenpeace supporters wrote to the Prime Minister to demand their release. The arrest was denounced by Amnesty International, and fits a pattern of repression of the rights of free speech in Japan which has been condemned by the United Nations. Embassy actions are scheduled around the world today and tomorrow. Activists declare themselves as 'co-defendants', by asking the Japanese government to 'Arrest Me Too' and to put 'Whaling on Trial'. The group challenges the Prime Minister to set Junichi and Toru free, and end the corrupt whaling programme, or order their own arrest for daring to oppose the whaling programme. 30,000 people have also signed petitions declaring themselves complicit in Junichi and Toru's actions, and state that if defending whales is a crime, they too are guilty.
