Greenpeace greets fisheries ministers with airborne protest

As EU Fisheries Ministers begin debating the Common Fisheries Policy [i] (CFP) reform in Spain, Greenpeace flew airborne banners and displayed balloon-bound banners demanding “Spain: Stop Overfishing” and “EU: Save Our Seas.”

Spain, which holds the European Union presidency, is hosting the fisheries meeting in Vigo. Greenpeace is singling out Spain as the worst overfishing nation of all EU member states.
