Call to Free Captain Paul Watson

I just realized that the German Consulate General is just down the street from where I work.


Captain Paul Watson arrested and jailed in Germany on Costa Rica warrant

Free the man who will not stand for illegal fishing and whaling

Hello, I’m here to speak to someone about freeing Captain Paul Watson, on the basis of an arrest warrant from 10 years ago, issued by a State (Costa Rica) that was the flag flying on an illegal fishing vessel in another State’s (Guatemala’s) waters (Captain Watson was asked, by the way, to intervene by that other State and to stop the illegal fishing activity), illegally catching and illegally finning and illegally discarding still-live as well as dead illegally de-finned sharks, a warrant that was not honored or recognized as valid just days ago by Interpol.

To whom may I speak to provide my comment? About illegal fishing that Germany certainly does not want to support?

I expect to say something like that to the Atlanta Consul, or his secretary’s secretary.

I am acting as part of a group that is planning to have call day to German Embassies and Consulates General all around the world.  The link contains links to addresses and phone numbers.

Thursday, May 17.  Call an German Embassy or Consulate General.

And now a song as I unplug and close my eyes.

Do me a favor before I go.

Will you do me a favor?

Stand on up.

Stand on up.

And be counted for protecting marine life.  And speaking out against thinly-veiled, unjust harassment by unknown and unnamed thugs who would kill all marine life for half a buck.

Hold on.  I’m coming.
