Jailed Greenpeace Activists Complain of Rats in Cells


Apparently they like whales and dolphins, but not rats.

Dutch female activist Faiza Oulahsen revealed in a letter that she is held in ‘in a dirty cell, alone, isolated from the rest’.

She wrote: ‘Once in a while a rat crawls across the floor. I’ve lost weight and am not sleeping too well, but I am still holding my head high.’

She complains of having been denied the right to call home and not receiving most of the books and letters people are sending her.

She should have tried being locked in a Russian prison back when her fellow leftists were running the place. Her biggest complaint would not have been about not receiving enough books.

Faiza Oulahsen, who is clearly not Dutch, but probably a Tunisian or Moroccan Muslim immigrant or second-generation immigrant, could try the prisons back home. I suspect they would be much worse.

And isn’t Greenpeace in the business of forcing people to accommodate animals. She should seek an accommodation with the rats. Maybe share some food with them. Teach them about the importance of Global Warming.

Humans are just invaders in their natural prison habitats.

    At the end of the day she committed a crime. Calling a crime ‘activism’ does not stop it being a crime. But then again, the Left are very good at renaming things in their own interests The Occupy movement like to call their crimes activism as well, but when Israel does something perfectly legal, they are renamed ‘war criminals’ or an ‘apartheid state’.
    Maybe this ‘prisoner of conscience’ should start renaming things to make her feel better. She could call her prison cell an ‘apartment’ and she could call all the rats ‘cats’ and pretend that she has lots of pets.

      Not just a crime, but piracy. Hang ‘em all, for all I care. As long as they don’t come back. Forward.

      Vice versa.

        :) As long as you know where the allusion comes from.

    “She should seek an accommodation with the rats”, rodent to rodent. Trouble is that she’ll have to learn the rat tongue, and then how to distort it, lib style.

    Then she can “Teach them about the importance of Global Warming”, if they’re interested and haven’t eaten her foot off by then..

    Well Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Pembina Institute, ad nauseum, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuala is where you should have been protesting all along. None of them give a RAT’S ASS for the environment. But you continually hoodwink the West about Canada’s Oilsands and America’s VAST reserves of Oil and Gas. Protesting the REAL polluters is long overdue……Saudi’s next?

    If only the Russians had executed the butt bandits. By the way, somebody has to level the pirate villages down in Africa

    I’m always hearing that truth is relative and in a democratic society both sides of this tiff are rat bast*rds. Nothing to see here….move along.

    “One should not mistake the rules of International Laws with those of morality or decency or environmentalism; sometimes they coincide sometimes they don’t.”
    I believe the activist did commit a crime but then you got to draw a line and decide how long will your economic responsibility outweigh your moral responsibility.

    I’m surprised PETA hasn’t gotten involved. Putting poor innocent rats in with the likes of greenpeace idjuts……how dare they.
