Fishing conflict – France to block ports and Channel Tunnel on November 26

Gérard Romiti, president of the French National Committee for Fisheries and Aquaculture, announced that fishermen will use vans to block three French ports and trucks traveling through the tunnel on Friday.

“Our mobilization tomorrow is a demonstration of our ability to mobilize in the face of the provocative, arrogant and disdainful attitude of the British government,” he said.

Tomorrow, fishermen will block the ports of Calais, Saint-Malo and Uiström for several hours, as well as the motorway leading to the tunnel for the transport of goods.

France’s Fisheries Ministry said French vessels have received “over 960 licenses” to fish in UK waters and around the Channel Islands, but more than 150 have yet to be issued.
