(ANSA) – MANFREDONIA (FOGGIA), MAY 31 – “We lift the block, we open a passage between the fishing boats to let the ship that transports water to the Tremiti Islands set sail freely”. This was announced by the fishermen of the maritime sector of Manfredonia (Foggia) who have been protesting against the expensive diesel fuel for a week, not going out to sea with their boats. On Saturday morning the owners of the fishing boats created a sort of “barrier” at the port of the Foggia municipality by placing their more than two hundred boats next to each other.

“Today a delegation of Apulian fishermen met the councilor for agriculture of the Puglia Region, Donato Pentasuglia – a shipowner tells ANSA – who promised to donate around 3 million euros to all companies in the sector, which divided for all the Apulian fishing boats are about 2 thousand euros per boat “. “A negligible figure – he comments – that does not even allow us to fill up with fuel”. The fishermen have announced that they will continue the protest “until concrete aid arrives from the central government”. But in the meantime they have chosen to “open a passage and leave the ship for the nearby Tremiti Islands, to give a signal to all the institutions”. (HANDLE).
