Anti-whaling activist Paul Watson, founder of the Oregon-based Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, is sworn in before testifying during a contempt of court hearing in federal court, Nov. 6, in Seattle. Japanese whalers argue that Watson's organization on 10 occasions violated an order barring its vessels from attacking or coming within 500 yards of the whaling ships.
