Claxton Bay weeps for fishermen
By Cecily Asson Thursday, August 19 2010
Claxton Bay villagers were moved to tears yesterday when two simple white coffins with the bodies of fishermen Motilal Ramkalawan and Krishna Appoo arrived at the fishing depot and were placed next to each other.
Although the coffins were sealed, the crowd of mourners surged forward begging for a chance to “see” them. Photographs of the fishermen were placed on top of the coffins. Mourners who managed to squeeze through the crowd to stand in front of the coffins gazed at the photographs; others touched the coffins as they wept. The photographs were lifted for those at the back to see. Ramkalawan, 44, of Rig Road, Claxton Bay and Apoo, 55, of La Sophie Trace, Claxton Bay were fishing in the Gulf of Paria, off the Claxton Bay depot, last weekend when they were brutally attacked by pirates. The pirates planassed the fishermen, threw them overboard and stole their boats and engines.
