The FV Margiris had a welcoming committee to meet it this morning. This short video of the confrontation shows the scale of this huge factory ship.(Via Greenpeace Australia Pacific).
This morning Greenpeace activists intercepted controversial Dutch super trawler, FV Margiris, and attempted to stop it from sneaking into Port Lincoln Harbour in South Australia. Water cannons were fired at the activists and some of their ropes cut, but their determination remains to stop this super trawler from plundering Australia’s oceans.
