FREE Captain Paul Watson


Costa Ricans are trying to arrest him for the events around Sharkwater but believes he will (might) be released tomorrow. A fishermen accused Paul of trying to kill him, though Paul says it is evident that he did not and that evidence is on film. He said the warrant dates back to an event in 2002 and he is unclear why they have issued it ten years later.

In shocking news, German officials have decided to proceed with the extradition of Captain Watson to Costa Rica.  Our last hope of saving Captain Watson from extradition is to convince German officials at the Ministry of Justice to step in and overturn their decision.  Show your support for Captain Watson by contacting Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, the Federal Minister of Justice in Berlin, Germany.  Let her know that the warrant for Captain Watson's arrest is politically motivated and thus should be ignored by the German goverment.  With international support we can set Captain Watson free, and keep him from the possibility of facing an unfair trial in Costa Rica.
