Free Captain Paul Watson
Captain Paul Watson Captain Paul Watson is the world’s most aggressive, most determined, most active and most effective defender of wildlife, is currently being held in prison in Germany pending extradition proceedings to Costa Rica on a trumped up politically motivated charge because he exposed the scale of illegal shark-finning and taking direct action to stop it.
This is a ridiculous, politically motivated attempt to punish the one man who has done more than anyone to stop this barbaric and unnecessary killing of sharks. That killing was on a massive scale of millions, and all to line the pockets of a tiny, but incredibly powerful, shark-fin mafia with friends in high places.
It is absolutely outrageous and one would have hoped almost unthinkable that this action against Paul should be taken in Germany – one of the places where the humanitarian, one-kind, green movement was born. I know many no, most, of my German political colleagues and friends will be outraged and ashamed by this action. It must be reversed!
