Free Paul Watson!
Captain Watson has been in a German prison since Sunday and is in danger of being extradited to Costa Rica where we fear for his safety from the Shark Fin Mafia and an unfair, politically motivated trial!
When we last wrote you, we had only 15 hours to make our case to the German Federal Minister of Justice, who could throw this whole case out and release Captain Watson, but a stroke of luck has come our way. There was a delay in filing by the general public prosecutor on Wednesday. The delay coupled with Thursday being a bank holiday in Germany has given Captain Watson’s supporters until this Friday to appeal to Federal Minister of Justice and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to end the unjust and politically motivated extradition of our fearless leader.
Please act now! Call, email, and fax the Honorable Ministers and politely ask them to intervene before the extradition process officially begins. If you have already written or called, please do so again! We only have hours to change the minds of the German officials who can make a difference and do something, not only to save the life of Captain Watson, but also to save the lives of the whales, dolphins, seals, and fish that he has spent his life courageously defending.
For the oceans,
