Shoot: French Fisheries Ministry Protest

GP0STOHP
Activists dumped about 5 tonnes of dead bluefin tuna heads in front of the French Fisheries Ministry in Paris in an escalating effort to demand the closure of Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean bluefin tuna fishery before it closes itself -- by collapsing.
The action was timed to coincide with the opening of the annual meeting of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), in Marrakech. Tuna populations in the Atlantic and Mediterranean fall under the 'management' of ICCAT, a body made up of government representation from 45 countries plus the European Community.
