Is this political? I’m not trying to push the boundaries but it is about racism and I think it deserves a wider audience.

 

Tunisian fishermen have taken it upon themselves to prevent an anti-immigrant French group from docking in their country. They say they don’t want racists landing there. These are just ordinary working folk taking a stand against something they think is wrong. I think they are heroes.

Presumably, if French fishermen stop Tunisians landing in France, they will be heroes too! Vive la Revolution!

The youth wing of the national front in a boat?  Mainly a publicity stunt.

 

Of course if these thugs dare to interfere with passage of another vessel in international waters, they should be arrested.

 

The world doesn't need vigilantism.

I think it's very cool that those fishermen stood up to them. Assuming, of course, that the story isn't fake news.

That might go some way to verify it as not "fake" news.

 

It didn't make it to Zarsis - and doesn't seem to be heading toward any other Tunisian port.  It's broadcasting Cyprus as destination from it's AIS transponder.

 

At the moment, it's stopped - not going anywhere.

 

It would be justice if it's broken down or run out of fuel and sinking, the alt:right crew can take a little swim or sit it out and await rescue.

Of course the rescue boats may be a little busy with refugees...
