A French purse seiner, Jean Marie Christian 7, rams a Greenpeace inflatable during a direct action. Activists from the Greenpeace ships Rainbow Warrior and the Arctic Sunrise launched high speed inflatable boats in an attempt to submerge one side of a purse seine fishing net to free the trapped bluefin tuna. As the action started on another French vessel, Jean Marie Christian 6, other tuna vessels rushed in to stop the peaceful activists. One Greenpeace activist was injured when the spike of a grappling hook was shot through his leg. Two of the seven Greenpeace inflatable boats were slashed with knives and sank when run over by purse seining vessels.06/04/2010
