New vessel to New Orleans
Arrived 12th of January 2009 with phosphates from occupied Western Sahara.
A bulk vessel called Fortezza on 12th of January 2009 arrived the harbour of New Orleans, USA, with phosphate rock from occupied Western Sahara.
The trade is taking place in violation of international law, and in the disregard of the wishes and interests of the people of Western Sahara.
The Western Sahara Resource Watch section in Louisiana sent 1st of October 2008 a letter to PCS urging the highly unethical trade to stop. See the letter here. WSRW is still waiting for reply from the company.
Fortezza has IMO number 9057575, and is owned and operated by Harvey Development Corp. It has 69.634 deadweight tonnes.
