Frigates and Solidarity in the Harbour

While the German navy today proudly presented two frigates to the public in Hamburg with an 'open ship' day, a group of activists took the opportunity to alert the public to the connection between these frigates, the Atalanta mission, European strategic interests and the current 'piracy' trial. The activists handed out leaflets and unfolded a banner demanding the release of the ten accused Somali.
