Release our Jedi Master #FreePaulWatson

Captain Paul Watson, founder of The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society  is currently in a german prison awaiting the next court hearing to see if he will be extradited to Costa Rica on resurected charges over a vessel violation from 2002YES 2002.

The media has been full of articles on Paul Watson’s arrest and they are indeed diligently following the events this week. One important fact stands out head and shoulders above all the others facts and the evidence.

Captain Paul Watson will not receive a FAIR TRIAL if he is extradited to Costa Rica and his life will be in Danger. Those that follow Sea Shepherd are fully aware that Paul Watson and many other high profile activists that defend our oceans wildlife and habitat receive Death Threats regularly.

Rob Stewart, cameraman and filmaker from the award winning film “Sharkwater” was on board the the Sea Shepherd Farley Mowat and has filmed and recorded the events including footage of the alleged offence which he has released. Interestingly enough, whilst he was in Costa Rica making the film in 2002, he was warned to leave the country as his life was endangered and he had to sneak out. That is also in the film “Sharkwater”.

Unfortunately, Germany is shut today, closed for business. It is a bank holiday, and so our Jedi Master has to wait until Friday for the next court hearing in the Saga. Captain Watson does not believe in coincidences and neither do I and many other Sea Shepherd supporters. There are dark forces at play. These alleged offences are fuelled with corruption and deceit as there are several billion dollar industries that would benefit from the removal of Captain Paul Watson from defending our oceans and sea life.

You can help, whilst Germany is shut, you can blog, share and email. I have posted a few useful email addresses for you;

PLEASE PUT PRESSURE on Germany by wrting to it’s representatives in the EU:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I was very concerned to hear that Germany has detained Sea Shepherd’s Captain Paul Watson for possible extradition to Costa Rica. Many feel that if Captain Watson is extradited, his life will be at risk.

 
I understand that the warrant for Captain Watson’s arrest is politically motivated and possibly due to an incident in which Sea Shepherd uncovered an illegal shark finning operation. Evidence that proves the lies and political motivations of the accusations are fully available. Incopesca in Costa Rica seems to have great interest in the arrest.

http://taijiactiongroup.blogspot.com.br/2012/05/incopesca-in-costa-rica-may-be-driving.html?spref=fb

It is evident to the international community that this a conspiracy, politically motivated. More than that, the community believe it NOT to be a simple coincidence that the renewal of the arrest demand of Paul Watson comes at the same time as Japan starts a law suit, through its “Whale Research Institute” against Sea Sheperd in the US.

At this very time, Japan plans to kill and slaughter another 260 whales, for “research” purposes:

http://www.seashepherd.org/news-and-media/2012/05/16/germany-considers-sending-whale-defender-to-what-will-be-a-death-sentence-in-costa-rica-1377

I support Sea Shepherd’s efforts to monitor and publicise illegal fishing and whaling around the world and recognize that some illegal fishing operations try to use international law to shut down the Sea Shepherd operations.

I urge you to consider the valuable work Captain Watson and Sea Shepherd are undertaking globally to highlight the dangers to our oceans in considering this extradition request.

Please consider the full implications of this situation. Germany cannot be used/associated with such a sordid political manoueuvre or negatively seen internationally as an enemy of the international movement on behalf of wildlife preservation.

Mr Watson will surely NOT have a decent legal trial if extradited to Costa Rica. The whole world has eyes directly on Germany at this very moment, to see whether it will choose the side of  justice or if it will be an accomplice with such an indecent murderous plot against Sea Shepherd and what is now left of Earth’s marine wildlife.

Much is at stake. Please consider Captain Paul Watson’s case. The Public Prosecutor stated that the German Ministry of Justice and the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs have the power to stop the extradition procedures on political grounds.

http://www.interpol.int/News-and-media/News-media-releases/2012/N20120514

If the German Ministry of Justice and/or the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs give notice that they would not grant an extradition of Paul Watson to Costa Rica the case would be over, and Captain Watson would be set free immediately.

I am grateful that you have taken the time to read this important email and can I thank you in advance for considering Paul Watson’s case.

Yours Faithfully,

———————————————————————————————–

Captain Paul Watson is canadian so I would like to think Canada and it’s representatives would like to support his case. You may also like to contact The Canadian Foreign Minister Mr John Baird,

 bairdj@parl.gc.ca

You can also send a mail to the German minister of Foreign Affairs, he can stop the extradition and save our Captain;

 

The Empire is aware of Sea Shepherd’s spiralling legal expenses and indeed this is more than likely one of their motives. Donations are needed to ensure Sea Shepherds success with it’s legal challenges and ongoing campaigns that will not falter, Sea Shepherds and their supporters are more determined and resolute in their endeavours.
