Ministry of Ecology or not , conventions that have been ratified regarding the ship dismantling and export of waste are not respected in France.

On November 11, 2011, the two car ferries " SeaFrance Cezanne " and " SeaFrance Renoir owned by SeaFrance , the maritime subsidiary of SNCF, were sold to Panamanian companies, in total impunity in the port of Dunkerque and changed for the Belize Flag.

In the port of Le Havre, the cargo vessel " Global Spirit " flying the flag of Liberia is leaving "quietly " the big French port to go to the Alang Bay in Asia to be dismantled. She belongs to " Mitsui Osk Kines " -a Japanese shipowner who sent six ships to Asia last year - and chartered by Autotrans.

The Ministry of Ecology has been warned for several days but did not take any step. Why ?

MOR GLAZ is once again disappointed by the behavior of France that authorizes the departure of the ship, in total violation of all international conventions.

MOR GLAZ requests the maritime unions and port to be more attentive about the export of old ships filled with toxic chemicals that kill workers in poor countries : the GLOBAL SPIRIT will be dimsanteled in Alang - India .

The leaders' speeches of our leaders on the protection of Rights and the Environment are just non sense .... MOR GLAZ ( who recently has given three green cards to three French private shipowners ) , has delivered a "red card" to the Ministry of Madame Ségolène Royal and all administrations because they do not apply the conventions ratified by France .

MOR GLAZ notes with bitterness that France, despite all his good intentions is like many countries , unable to meet its commitments.

Such distortions between speeches, means to proceed and this "laissez-faire" are unbelievable .... MOR GLAZ has never believed in the " Grenelle de la Mer" and we are very wary at conferences and symposia. MOR GLAZ consider that there are just great masquerades ", " réunionites " where everyone has his "those" reassuring speech, out of phase with reality. These methods are "not " very orthodox .
