Fishermen are to stage a mass protest in which they will burn EU flags and vessels in a furious stand against the Government’s transitional deal that was agreed between the UK and the European Union.
The transitional deal agreement effectively means Brexit Britain will remain as part of the Common Fisheries Policy until the end of 2020.
Fishing for Leave, who organised a protest on the Thames last month which saw Nigel Farage hurl fish into the river outside the House of Commons, are now staging a fresh protest on Sunday April 10.
Around 200 fishing vessels across the country are set to unite to take part in the demonstrations which Fishing for Leave say will be joined by Brexiteers and Tory MPs.
Demonstrations will take place at Hastings, Whitstable, Portsmouth, Milford Haven, with larger turnouts expected in Newcastle and Plymouth. During the protest at Whitstable, Fishing for Leave say they are planning to set a vessel on fire, while at Hastings, EU flags will be torched. Fireworks and horns will also mark the occasion.
Fishing for Leave spokesman Alan Hastings said: “The European Union would be free to easily eradicate what is left of our fleet and has every incentive to do so.
“The EU can achieve eradication of our fleet using the failed quota system that forces fishermen to discard fish to try to find the species you are allowed to keep.
“The discard ban addresses the discard symptom not the quota cause. Now, when a vessel exhausts its smallest quota it must stop fishing, this will bankrupt around 60 percent of the British fleet, this is why we discarded fish outside parliament to highlight this existential crisis.
“Our nation’s fishing and communities were surrendered to the EU and have suffered immeasurably through EU mis-management.”
Statements are expected to be given by Fishing for Leave spokesmen and MPs at the location of each demonstration.
Who does May actually represent? She supports the EU yet she is supposed to be be representing the UK. She is giving our fishing grounds to the EU and gave the contract to print British passports to a French company rather than a British one!
