Dumping toxic and radioactive waste in Somalia, Congo and Benin

Just received this link and felt horrified, had no idea of what was really happening in Somalia and how the silence about this situation is terrifying.

Not really, the documentary has the title «Piratas» which means Pirates in Spanish. The document makes a short trip since Somalia gained its independence in 1960 until today and explains how the piracy movement has started and its relationship with toxic and radioactive dumpings from Europe.

Assuming everything you see on the intertubes is true, of course.

Re: Dumping toxic and radioactive waste in Somalia, Congo and Benin

What is really amazing is the lack of information we all have upon everything, this is what really made me feel outraged, my country is also sending navy to Somalia coast «making international maritime traffic safer against Somali piracy» and I always thought they were doing a good thing.
What about the rest, what else are they hiding from us?
