An Alert From Captain Bligh
Here’s a disturbing video from the Mentawais reef bombers in action.
This is an attempt at stopping the bombs, I really hope you can help me.
For over 1 month now, the Playgrounds area has had at least 3 boats every day bombing our reefs. When the weather is good, they can do over 5 cycles of bombing and collecting the dead fish in a day. Each cycle is between 5 – 8 bombs. Just doing a low average we calculate over 2250 bombs have been exploded in our 15 mile radius area. You can see what this looks like from footage shot this morning.
Please share the video link with whoever you think can help to get the word out. I need this posted on every site, everybody’s FB and linked as if there is no tomorrow.
The goal is to help Indonesians feel strongly about protecting their waters from bomb boats, and nudge them into action. So any of your Indonesian friends with connections, websites or blogs, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE forward it onto them with the instructions to do the same again. I want to see 1,000,000 viewed and 500,000 comments by tomorrow morning please.
If there is one positive difference YOU are going to make online today, please spend an hour of your life and get this to as many people who you think will make a difference. We’ve tried everything else, and the bomb boats are still here. I think in the age of social media, we can do better.
Time is against us. Another 28 bombs have gone off that I have heard whilst sitting here writing to you and waiting for the upload to finish.
Please reply if you want bahasa copy of this email to share with your friends.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration,
