sea_flower1_350.jpgThe vessel 'Sea Flower' in July 2008 transported fishmeal from Western Sahara towards Germany - perhaps only as transit towards Russia.

Few days after Sea Flower (IMO number 8100090) arrived El Aaiun 27 june 2008 to load the fishmeal - and thus carrying out an unethical transport  from the occupied territory - an incident seems to have occurred to the captain.

On 2 July 2008, while still in El Aaiun, their Russian captain died under circumstances which are unknown to WSRW. On 5 July 2008, the vessel left the harbour.




Morocco occupies the major part of its neighbouring country, Western Sahara. Entering into business deals with Moroccan companies or authorities in the occupied territories gives an impression of political legitimacy to the occupation. It also gives job opportunities to Moroccan settlers and income to the Moroccan government. Western Sahara Resource Watch demands foreign companies leave Western Sahara until a solution to the conflict is found.
Stand up for the Gdeim Izik 25!


Leading activists from Western Sahara are condemned to sentences ranging from 20 years to life imprisonment in connection to a mass protest in 2010 denouncing the Saharawi people’s social and economic marginalization in their occupied land; the Gdeim Izik protest camp.
