Youtube videos - "Freewinds dumping waste in Bonaire water"

Post by SomebodyElse » Sun Oct 07, 2007 3:40 pm

A little something about the freewinds ... ed&search= Part 1
"Documentary about Bonaire's waste water. made by Sean Paton and Hendrik Wuyts. [Freewinds in dock]" Part 2
"many times every hour trucks full of waste water leave the Freewinds, a scientology cruiseship. Isn't it time to start a dialog and find a solution instead of dumping it in Bonaire's beautiful nature."

The refurbished Freewinds is sighted at Bonaire, July 20th 09.
Doing what? Well, it was sighted by the same Bonaire environmental reporter, Sean Paton, who made a YouTube documentary piece two years ago about the Freeewinds dumping its waste into the Bonaire groundwater......and it is dumping toxic waste again.

Freewinds attacks Bonaire again
Our last film on the Freewind was 2 years ago May 2007.
After the Freewinds being in the spotlight concerning asbestos pollution, here they are again docking on our island of Bonaire.
Understand we have noting against the Scientology but they promised us not to dock our island and dump their wastewater on our land.
Bonaire has its own problems and has no means of receiving wastewater from the outside.
This film will show you that their waste is toxic and is polluting our nature and killing our reefs, polluting our groundwater and killing our island .

I'm just shocked! The COS broke another promise. Just what I would expect from the most "up stat" people in the world.

I sent the following message to our Department of Environment:
For many years the ship Freewinds, which docks regularly at Bonaire, dumps all its waste water in the natural environment on the island. When the ship is docked several tank trucks drive in shuttle service from the Freewinds, and do so in numbers each hour, to the dumping site which lies simply on the island and in absolutely no way it is suited for that purpose, let alone secured against environmental pollution. Partly toxic water pollutes the environment, the groundwater, and leaks also into the vulnerable environment of the surrounding sea. I find this a mockery of our environmental policy. In Dutch ports it is not allowed to dump anything, neither is it in nature. For this reason to me it seems absurd that on the other side of the world all of a sudden complete other rules seem to apply to Dutch territory. I expect fast action so that damaging the environment no longer is continued.

Gorilla Radio - with Chris Cook, Sean Paton, Dave Lindorff, Janine Bandcroft Monday Aug 3, 2009
This week on GR: Broadcaster and environmental activist, Sean Paton on the devastation of the Antilles isle of Bonaire by the Scientologist run cruise ship, Freewinds


Listen: CFUV 101.9 FM :: Campus Community Radio

Chris Cook hosts Gorilla Radio, airing live every Monday, 5-6pm Pacific Time. In Victoria at 101.9FM, 104.3 cable, and on the internet at: CFUV 101.9 FM :: Campus Community Radio. He also serves as a contributing editor to the web news site, Pacific Free Press - Hard Truths for Hard Times - Progressive opinion, dissident news. Check out the GR blog at: Gorilla Radio blog

It's an idyllic land; a beautiful island, set like a precious stone in diamond-sparkled ocean, threatened by industrial and human wastes spewed by cruise ships. No, it is not Vancouver Island, though it suffers too the same despoiling, it is the Caribbean isle of Bonaire, one of the necklace of sun kissed, white sand, paradisiacal places making up the Dutch Antilles.

The names of its destroyer include: greed, stupidity, and Scientology. It is the great cruise ship Freewinds, owned and operated by the infamous Scientology cult using Bonaire as its septic dumping ground, despite promises made to islanders they would cease and desist.

Sean Paton is an English sailor who, via a globetrotting trajectory, shored up in Bonaire. He's a writer, activist, videographer, broadcaster and foremost, an oceanophile who describes himself as; a music-loving family man, with big ideas about keeping in tune with an environment we humans seem intent on destroying. He's butted heads with local officials and the great "church" of Scientology to put an end to the Freewinds' defiling of his home. Sean Paton in the first half.
We missed the radio show on the night. Slow google news pick-up is slow.
Good that the locals are being informed.

EDIT: MP3 now available. This is the best place to get it (play or download from page)>>> Gorilla Radio - Chris Cook
(segment starts at 8min12sec)
