silence is acceptance.. we are change, awaken with vibrant energy to aliveness.. all that is necessary for bad deeds to triumph is for good men/woman to do nothing. we see multitudes of our fellow beings struggling but you should know that these are the days of our beginnings our time to stand and be counted to demand that destruction stops and the ignorance is out shined by education. open up the shadows of our hearts to the light and withdraw our consent. for as long as you give consent to the little things you shall observe the reflections in the big ones.. we see the world as we are not as it is..
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

These people are getting away with illegal fishing and poaching in Indonesia because the gov't so corrupt that they make little to no effort to stop this. They will allow the destruction of all their natural resources for a kickback. Very sad situation.

stupid bastards. Well, I guess they have to support the zillion kids they have...thank you very much- religions that spout adding souls to impact the planet.
so what are they going to feed the offspring when the fish are gone? Maybe they cant think past todays catch.

Once Asians finish destroying nature in their own countries they'll start in this part of the world
(Oops. they started already: shark finning, whale killing, rhino killing, etc.)
Something must be done, asap.

Sadly Noted , Thankyou .... You would think that if illegal fishing was costing a country 4 billion annually and starving it's population of protein the government of that country would be hell bent on doing something about it unless the government officials running the show were corrupt and taking bribes and kick-backs... Besides the cost of illegal fishing there is also the cost of losing these reefs and habitats and the loss of tourists visiting them , so by doing very little about it the GOOD people of Indonesia are losing all round......
