Greenpeace protests against the sea dumping of toxic dredgings sludge by the Department of Public Works and the Port of Rotterdam. This sludge is polluted with tributyltin (TBT), a toxic processed in many ship paints to prevent the growth of alga and sea acorns to the ship's hull. TBT damages sea life. Female shellfish develop male sexual characteristics and become infertile. Because of this the sea whelks have already disappeared in the Wadden Sea. Three Greenpeace inflatables try to drag a banner reading 'Giftig slib: spoor van verderf', which translates to English as 'Toxic sludge: trail of destruction' behind a dredging ship just dumping toxic sludge. Unfortunately the banner is torn to pieces by the force of the ship. Greenpeace demands a worldwide ban on the usage and production of TBT.
