THE PROTECTION OF THE SEAFARERS, GOODS AND THE COASTLINE

 

As in 2013, MOR GLAZ Association will invite itself to the summer university of the Socialist Party at LA ROCHELLE. We wish to make them remember certain promises about the maritime safety in the Bay of Biscay.

Mor Glaz Association askes that a sea-going tug "supply vessel" with a power of minimum 180 tonnes of traction to the tow hook is put in place to insure the maritime and coastline safety in the Bay of Biscay.

In august 2011, the tub boat "ABEILLE LANGUEDOC" positioned since January 2006 left the port of La PALLICE to be repositioned in the Straight of Dover after the disengagement of the UK who insured the safety in this area (financed since 10 years at 50% by France. Quickly, several social leaders and not the less important summoned the government of FRANCOIS FILLON to position another tug boat to insure the protection of the coastline, the seafarers and the goods.

In December 2011, during the grounding of the "TK Bremen" on the beach of ERDEVEN in the south of Brittany, the president of the region of Brittany (who since became minister of the defence) required in a communicate of the 22nd of December 2011 of the prime minister FRANCOIS FILLON to reposition a sea-going tug based in south Britany under the orders of the maritime prefect of the Atlantic coast.

In February 2014, the cargo ship "JUST MARIIAM" was recuperated at 1.3 miles of Belle-Ile just in time by the ABEILLE BOURBON. This one had to come out of the zone of Ushant for 48 hours while strong winds of 120 km/hours was blowing of the coast of Brittany and the Atlantic coast.

Since the month of May 2012, the socialists who "summoned" "required" it are working on it at full time!!! A quick and efficient solution must be found to insure the protection of the coastline, the seafarers and the goods in this zone were more and more dangerous ships due to their size pass.

Since the tug boat left LA PALLICE, there have been many worries, as seven written or oral questions who had been asked were the objects of questions in both assemblies and several letters were sent to the concerned ministers.

 

What has happened of the good intentions you had when you were in opposition?

Between the 15th of January 2006 and the 7th of June 2011, the Abeille Languedoc had done 69 interventions, 18 ships were towed in total power failure… hundreds of seafarers were assisted and thousands of tonnes of fuel were brought back to a safe harbour.

The presidents of the regions and of the departments of the Atlantic coast who were there during the summer universities of LA ROCHELLE must obtain from the government a sea-going tug in this zone before this winter.

 

 

MOR GLAZ

Who are we?

" On earth, the sea represents 2.5 times the surface of the earth, the sea is becoming a waste bin, we must act and protect it. In front of the maritime insecurity, the many social abuses that knows this activity, citizens of all horizons of the French society have decided to create MORGLAZ Association "blue sea" in French.

" Citizens want to propose and impose new rules, the same for all and exclude all the bad actors "pseudo ship-owners" of the maritime transport. The sea leads to 90%of the world exchanges. We cannot tolerate anymore all these inappropriate actions against the seafarers and the marine environment.

" It is our aim to make a priority of the appliance of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC2006), the protection of ships by professionals in the risk areas, the cabotage recovery, the development of the secondary ports, the deconstruction of old civil and military ships in the respect of men and the environment. We support the adoption by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) of safety equipment and of prevention on board all ships (ex: the obligatory equipment of the JLMD ecologic system and the anti-collision system AUTOMATIC SEA VISION)
