If anyone would like to help Paul Watson (and knowing what I do about this website I bet some of you do ), you can make an impact by writing or calling the Federal Minister of Justice in Berlin Germany
I have no idea; I can only speculate and aborted doing that after a few failed attempts.
Captain's not always a military rank though, it's also a sailor's job e.g. cruise ships always have captains. Not sure if the reason you mentioned it is because some people actually criticize him for this?
The vid showed one of "his" ships banging into another as part of his protest. Flags of the vessels couldn't be seen but if he's on charges in Germany then I assume one of them was a German flagged vessel that was damaged in some way. As leader of this protest movement I assume he is considered culpable in some way but it does seem strange.

Apparently he's being held in Germany as Costa Rica have requested his extradition. He's accused of being responsible for a collision with fishing boats. This occured 10 years ago. He's accusing Costa Rica of cosying up to Japan - who are the perennial targets for his protests.
Nah he can stay put in Germany as far as I'm concerned.
Hello Kasey, I agree with Coffey that your comment begs explanation. Is the ocean's ecosystem not worth aggressive civil action when governments and all their treaties, rules and regulations won't enforce what they rule? Is it possible that you don't care about Sea Shepherd because you don't live in the ocean?
It's important to know in any discussion that Paul Watson's clientele isn't us, it's whales, sharks, dolphins, seals and tuna.

Dishonest and stupid. Feel free to ignore everything I say.

I wholly disagree with Mr Watson's methodology, so I believe he should stay under house arrest in Germany and accept whatever punishment is due him for whatever it is he's done that has lead to him being under house arrest.
Illegal immigration isn't a new concept in the US. Just ask the Native Americans.
