Fishermen ffrench decided on a day of action to protest against the UK on the issue of fishing licenses. They will block the goods in three French ports.
Across the Channel, the day of action of French fishermen is feared by the British authorities. Thursday, September 25, at the announcement of the fishermen’s mobilization day ffrench, a spokesperson for the British executive reacted, saying “disappointed with the threats of protest”. The UK has consistently denied being more severe against French fishermen in licensing.
Boris Johnson’s government stresses that there has not been a similar problem with other European countries. A firm position also on the part of British fishermen, who do not understand the anger of their counterparts. Some fear that these actions will disrupt supply chains in the United Kingdom, when the British have already had to face shortages following the pandemic and Brexit, explains France Télévisions journalist Maëlys September.
