They are attacking us, they are throwing stones. Navy ship, Navy ship, this is the Farley Mowat. We are under attack. This is Sea Shepherd’s Farley Mowat. We are under attack. Engines and generators are ready. Are you guys ready? Get ready on the hoses, get your helmets on, and get your stuff on. They are starting to throw things. Stand by for hoses. We were patrolling the Vaquita Refuge. They are attacking us. They are throwing stones and lead, and more and more pangas and poachers are coming to join this attack. They want to board our stern. (rocks) That one is a Navy Defender. So, more small boats from the Navy are coming here. The poachers keep throwing stones at the Farley Mowat, but the Army (Navy) is here now, also small boats from the Army (Navy) came. Navy Ship, Navy Ship, this is Sea Shepherd. Go ahead. They are continuing to throw things. They have a chain, so watch out people. This guy has a chain. We moved from the dock after offloading nets, to move to the Vaquita Refuge to pull more illegal nets and about 20 minutes after we left the dock, we were attacked by poachers. We repelled the attack. Our defenses held very good. We were able to secure the ship. We had damage to the ship due to many rocks and two Molotovs that were thrown, both hit the stern and port side. During the attack, I was leading the starboard hose team, which involved the fire hose and the shield. At many points, we had rocks hurled at us, which we tried to push away initially with the hose because we could see them coming. That was one of the good things about the hose, that it kept the boats far enough away that we could see the projectiles as they were coming towards the ship. And then, if they would come close enough to the team, then we would use the shields to defend ourselves and we got dents in the shields from where the heavy rocks hit. We also had a Molotov hit the ship on the other side and it caught fire to the entire port side of the ship. However, because we already had the hoses in place, we could put that out immediately. It is a complicated situation for me and the other Mexican crew. They are calling us invaders, but our crew consists of people from all over the world that are taking the decision to support (this mission) and I am proud to be one of the Mexicans that crew this vessel with this noble cause. As we were departing for our daily patrol, we were attacked by a large group of skiffs. They threw a large number of dangerous objects and Molotov cocktails. Fortunately, thanks to our security protocol, all of our crew is safe. As a Mexican, I am proud to be part of this organization as we are here to protect an endemic species of our Mexico. That’s why we will not give up. Sadly, some people believe the crew members are only from America. But our crew comes from many different parts of the world. And we are happy to be here protecting an endangered species.
