Keir Starmer says he will never withdraw from the ECHR because there is "no need" and Rishi Sunak did not disagree, despite it being the reason he failed to stop the boats. Nigel Farage says it's time to ask the people.

A Swiss girl has been been taken into care because her parents stopped her taking puberty blockers, breaching a ban on conversion therapy. Is this what Labour means by a "full, trans-inclusive ban on conversion practices"?

The West's headlong rush to jettison fossil fuels and hit 'Net Zero' CO2 emissions is impoverishing us while enriching China, which is ramping up its coal-fired industry to sell us all the 'green' technology.

Greystones fishermen protest at bye laws excluding their way of life - Habour has been taken over by Privateers

category wicklow | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Thursday August 07, 2014 00:23author by pbp Report this post to the editors

Press release from Greystones fishermen 1 August 2014

Greystones Harbour was opened to the public almost two years ago, in November 2012. The marina opened for summer 2013.

However, despite written agreements and promises from the developer, the commercial fishers of Greystones have been refused access to the harbour and promised berths or moorings have not been offered to us.

We are today entering the harbour and landing freshly caught fish, against regulations, as a protest against this continued exclusion from the harbour, which only two weeks ago included the removal of mooring cleats from the harbour’s north pier in order to prevent boats tying up.

We are today entering the harbour and landing freshly caught fish, against regulations, as a protest against this continued exclusion from the harbour, which only two weeks ago included the removal of mooring cleats from the harbour’s north pier in order to prevent boats tying up.

We want to return to Greystones after seven years of exclusion. Greystones was founded as a fishing village several hundred years ago, and commercial fishing has always been based here in this harbour.

We want to come back. It has been far too long.

And until we are permitted under harbour regulations, we will continue to fish and land fish here as a protest against our exclsuion.

We are also protesting the terms of Draft Harbour Bye-Laws published by Wicklow County Council which cover commercial fishing. The clauses covering fishing are so restrictive that they would effectively prevent commercial fishermen from carrying on business in the harbour.

The only right fishing crews would have under these bye-laws would be to moor their boats. No storage facilities, no bait, and no sales would be permitted. For fishermen, the harbour would be only a boat park, and not a normal harbour where buyers can come direct to fishing boats to negotiate and buy fish.

We are asking all of Wicklow’s county councillors to oppose these clauses of the Bye-Laws when they are discussed at the council, and to replace them with clauses which will allow fishermen to carry on business fully in Greystones Harbour, as they have always done until 2007.
