Piracy Today BlogMV ALBEDO sunk - click picture for Marine Cafe Blog post
31 miserable months captive - ship abandoned by the owner, now sunk - relentlessly abused by their captors to pressure their families for money they haven't got - unbearable pain for their families - helpless, hopeless, Hell on earth, how do you describe a situation like that? Yet it's their reality, and the reality of many other pirate victims right this minute. How long can the world go on ignoring this situation? Well, don't try to answer that question unless you're courting despair.
This post from Barista Uno details a new development in the sad saga, this time from the families' end of the suffering. It's an appeal from the crewmembers' families, directly to the Somali pirates, their clans and families. Please read it for yourself, as nothing else can express it more powerfully. And continue to pray for these men and their tortured families!
