RAPPAHANNOCK shootout - are Indian seafarers target practice now?

We were at sea in the "good old days" when we heard stories about how naval ships from the Western countries, well after WW-II was over, would take potshots at fishing fleets from developing countries in the middle of the ocean, for whatever reason, even wagers between people - in a day and age when communication was not all that good.
It is the submission of some of us that a similar arrogance is coming back on the oceans. There are rules for us and there are no rules for them. Are we now target practice for a bunch of cowboys?

Fatigue at sea with seafarers - a film you must watch

Not just watch, but also comment, on their website as well as this blog. Finally somebody who gives some plain talk - why are seafarers subjected to such horrific conditions of work?

And please share too. We owe this to not just ourselves, but to the future generations.
