Read Time:1 Minute, 38 Second


On Thursday, a fishermen group posted on Facebook that they would block the ferries of Saint-Malo, Calais and Ouistreham, “to condemn the terms of the Brexit agreement and its impact on fishermen.”

A person in charge of a fishermen’s association told CNN that the protest will begin in Ouistreham at 1 pm local time and 15 ships will block the port in the area. He said that other groups will block the other two areas.

The fishermen said they are issuing a “warning” to require the UK to quickly issue fishing licenses after Brexit.

On January 25, 2018, the fishing boat left the Port of Calais to participate in the blockade to protest electrical pulse fishing by Dutch fishermen.

“We don’t want alms, we just want our license. The UK must comply with the post-Brexit agreement. Too many fishermen still know nothing,” declared Gérard Romiti, chairman of the National Marine Fisheries Commission, according to CNN affiliate BFMTV. .

According to Reuters, the Fishermen’s Association stated at an online press conference that a large number of vehicles will be used to block the passage to the Eurotunnel, which is used to transport goods by rail between the UK and France.

The British government responded on Thursday that it was “disappointed” by the threat of protest from French fishermen.

A Downing Street spokesperson said: “We expect the French authorities to ensure that there are no illegal activities and trade is not affected.” “We have obtained licenses for nearly 1,700 EU ships in total; our licensing method is reasonable and fully in line with our trade and cooperation agreement ( TCA) commitments.

“We will continue to cooperate with the committee and the French authorities and will consider providing any further evidence to support the remaining permit applications.”

The protests represent the latest round of tensions between Britain and France in a long-standing dispute over the rights of French and British ships to fish in each country’s waters after Brexit.
