(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #242 - Read: "Brothers of the coast. Defense of Somali pirates' (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Forgotten or that seem distant, paradoxically, at the net causes, there are many. The cause of the "pirates" of Somalia is one. They were fishermen before. Before the Indian Ocean where they were fishing is emptied of fish by French and Spanish trawlers. Before their coasts from pollution by the dumping of toxic materials in containers of all kind for thirty years (see story Toxic Somalia on the issue), including makers of an epidemic of urogenital malformations among Somali children. Before these waters are patrolled by formidable armada (the United States to Iran ...!) To punish these disrespectful beggars. Before getting down to Hollywood with turnip Captain Philips whose criticism of Cahiers du cinema Lepastier Joachim puts it: "This is a film recruitment shaped routine mission for Captain Hanks [actor], but almost Hostage captain Greengrass [director] " . Before the entire Earth is there so put.

Yet these "pirates" prefer the name coastguard because, by boarding ships and taking hostages, they only claim "compensation" only covering a little - a little - the huge sums that all shipowners and companies should pay if they were caught in the act of toxic spill off the coast inhabited by the poorest populations of the world.

But what most western media shall retain, they are poor tourists and / or kidnapped sailors, like the bourgeois du Ponant. The Ponant is a three-mast 88 meters long returned from a cruise to the Seychelles in April 2008 and which, on its way to its new destination (Malta), is attacked by a dozen " pirates. " The thirty crew members will be charged a short week. The seven "pirates", kidnapped on Somali soil after touching the ransom (in complete illegality by the French army) will remain four years in a tricolor jail pending trial, one week against four!

But the proles are always wrong in the eyes of justice, especially when they have the temerity to take up arms. That's what this reminds small writing by the temporary autonomous collective Iskashato reading and story consultant offset some book - just a little - the permanent media smoking out.
