**This video was made in hopes to shed light on the true origins of piracy off the coast of Somalia, which the mainstream media often hides and the United Nations refuses to investigate.
Somalia has the longest coastline in Africa, which today is almost entirely unprotected because of the ongoing conflict, which makes Somalia a major target for illegal fishers and criminal organizations who seek to dispose industrial waste including nuclear waste.
This combination of spilled toxic chemicals and the ongoing pirating of fish has lead to the decline of sea life and the contamination of drinking water for coastal communities who depend on seafood as their main source of livelihood. These foreign exploiters only resistance today are those who the media often refers to as "Somali Pirates".
No doubt, there are criminal opportunists among the native fishermen, who are only out to make a quick buck ... but these criminals should not cloud the true origins of piracy.
