It's a shame... There are forests planted solely to be processed to paper. And they have to cut down trees somewhere back in Canada. But where there's profit to be made reason has lost well in advance.

That´s true. Heard yesterday from the agent Greenpeace was about stopping her already in Canada but they didn´t reach so they moved the ball to their European members.

Ah, yes... I remember that in another context. They were blaming German publishing companies like Axel Springer Verlag to use paper made of this wood for their newspapers. And as far as I understand the subject Greepeace is right (for blaming them and taking action as with Finnwood)
But you see, people soon forget... (like me) :-(

Thanks, Jens. Greenpeace is against of logging primeval forests in Canada and got a hint of one paper load going from Canada to Continent, and decided to block the vessel in Terneuzen where she was arriving. I remember Greenpeace has done similar attacks in Lübeck too for paper loads coming from Northern Finland.

Thanks for your hint on CMA CGM Bizet that you would post new photos.
Else I would have missed them as I was off to bed at that time (Had to work today).
Wow, how many photos are posted here daily?
Had to look up page 62 to find that one here.
Very nice pic!
I missed the trouble with Greenpeace on the news. What was it about?
