After two years and nine months in captivity, the mariners of the MV Iceberg have been freed.
Best of luck to them on their journey to good health, and to their families.

Inspired by Manu’s Scripts’ many writings on piracy, I thought of how a mariner could have control, and it is the same one power we have, always:

Refuse to enable people or companies who put profit above responsibility to their crew—

• no money,
• no service,
• no business,
• no supplies,
• no crew,
• no succor.

As a tugman I know puts it, ” I wouldn’t piss on them even if they were on fire.” How inadvertently gracious of him.

Don’t work for Azal Shipping & Cargo. We need the names of the owners, should they disband and reform as another company.

Pass it on,brothers and sisters…

Join the Mariners Action Group (MAG). There are more being held.
Thank you, all who helped in the rescue, on all levels…
