2012 Italian shooting in the Arabian Sea
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search 2012 Italian shooting in the Arabian sea | The shootings occurred off the coast of Kerala state, India | Enrica Lexie at Kochi | Location | Indian Contiguous zone | Date | 15 February 2012
16:30 IST (disputed) (UTC+05:30) | Attack type | Shooting | Deaths | Indian fishermen: Ajesh Binki and Gelastine (Valentine) | Perpetrators | Italian Marines: Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone (accused) |

The incident sparked a major diplomatic row between the governments of Italy and India, with Indian police immediately opening a murder inquiry, and the Indian Coast Guard later intercepting the ship and arresting two Italian marines suspected of being involved in the shooting. The two Italian marines were released after 105 days in judicial custody under strict bail conditions and assurances from the Italian government that they will remain available to answer charges before Indian courts.
The Indian government allowed the marines to travel to Italy in February 2013 to vote in Italian general elections, after receiving assurances from the Italian government that the two marines will return to India. However, on 11 March 2013 the diplomatic row escalated into a stand-off when the Italian Foreign Ministry unilaterally announced that the marines will not return to India to stand trial. [1] On 21 March 2013, Italy backtracked from their decision and sent the marines back to India.

    “One day they had taken a number of fishes; and when they had killed and satisfied themselves with as many as they thought fit, to our astonishment who were on deck, rather than give any of them to us to eat, as we expected, they tossed the remaining fish into the sea again, although we begged and prayed for some as well as we could, but in vain; and some of my countrymen, being pressed by hunger, took an opportunity, when they thought no one saw them, of trying to get a little privately; but they were discovered, and the attempt procured them some very sever floggings” (46).…

    In The Outlaw Sea, author William Langewiesche states, “Even the lowliest laborers are proud of what they do at Alang. There is no ship too big to be torn apart this way. More important, the economic effects are substantial. Alang and the industries that have sprung from it provide a livelihood, however meager, for perhaps as many as a million Indians” (205). In Chapter 6, Langewiesche examines the lives of the shipbreaking and milling factory workers at Alang and Bhavnagar, and unveils many of the harsh realities behind the shipbreaking business, such as its environmental impacts and the role Western societies play in the exploitation of its laborers throughout…

    "Whale Wars: How to End the Violence on the High Seas." Journal of Maritime Law & Commerce 44.2 (2013): 135-168. Academic Search Complete. Web. 14 Nov. 2013. Doby talks about the war between the Sea Shepherd, an organization that confronts Japanese whalers in the ocean to stop them from killing whales, and the Japanese whaling fleet. The Sea Shepherd would track and attempt to stop the fleet of Japanese whaling ships (135). The war between the Japanese whalers and the Sea Shepherd has grabbed the attention of the media all over the world and caused various attentions to the Japanese whalers. The Sea Shepherd actions seen by the Japanese would be considered “terrorist” or “pirates,” but the Sea Shepherd believed that they are an environmental organization that are protecting the whales. This paper will help me talk about organizations that are fighting the whalers to protect whales in the Southern Ocean. I will also use it to talk about how the media sees the…

    In the small village of Taiji, there is a hidden cove where Japanese fishermen slaughter thousands of dolphins each year. The massacre of these dolphins goes on for six months out of the year. The dolphins are driven in to captive by using torturous underwater noises and large nets to trap them in to this cove where they are slaughtered. Some of the dolphins are killed in the cove, by fishermen cutting their throats with knives or stabbing them with spears, while others are taken off shore into trucks and dragged by their tails to be killed later. The surrounding water is bright red with the blood of these dolphins and the air is filled with their frightening screams. Besides the abuse and unnecessary killings of these beautiful creatures, another issue that is going unnoticed is that the dolphin meat is filled with mercury and being consumed by the Japanese unknowingly. The last major issue is dolphinariums supporting the Japanese fisherman by paying thousands of…

    Since the second phase of the Somali Civil War, which started in the early 2000’s, piracy off the coast of Somalia has been a great danger to international shipping. Starting in 2005, many international organizations, which include the International Maritime Organization and the World Food Program, have expressed major concern over the rising acts of piracy. Piracy has made trouble for the delivery of shipments and raised shipping costs, which have risen to an estimated 10 billion dollars a year in trade world wide. Pirates in Somalia have made it clear that they do not want anyone in their waters, or it will mean trouble for the by passers.…
