Greenpeace - menace to navigation or hapless victims

Travis mocks Greenpeace for letting their nimble ship get rammed by a lumbering whaler here.
One question: who started this?

Did the whalers pilot their ship up onto dry land, and approach the greenpeace headquarter’s building in order to do this?

Or did, you know, the greenpeacers track down the whaling boat, and then vandalize it, and only *THEN* get harpoons pointed at them?

Oh, those poor poor greenpeacers.
I viewed the video that Lisa suggested in the comments section. I concluded from the video that the 'Nisshin Maru' was in the wrong but it's probable that the master of the 'Arctic Sunrise' intentionally placed his vessel in harm's way.

And right after that I read this which points you to a site with startling different video footage. Same event, different POV.

Who is right? Durned if I know. But the beauty of the internet is that you can find the source material and decide for yourself without having to rely on clumsy propaganda.
