The fisheries policy, if it exists, must be reviewed in particular with the Covid-19 which imposes food sovereignty on us, he advises.
“I had already said that we had to stop fishing agreements to know where we are going. An audit of the sector is essential, an inventory of Senegalese, “Senegalese” and chartered boats must be carried out, and finally, the economic and social impact of fishing agreements must be assessed.
It is the European Union which tells us that it has signed an unequal agreement with Senegal for fishing tuna and other species for a few meager billions of francs for the Treasury. All this takes place in total opacity while this fish which is a natural resource belongs to the people. But President Macky Sall pretends this fish belongs to him. He decides alone without the deputies and local elected officials. It is all outrageous, ”he is offended.
Fishermen, especially those from Guet Ndar, according to Diallo Tekki again, have sounded the alarm for months. ” Artisanal fishing supports hundreds of thousands of families, especially women. This sector will collapse if this predatory policy continues. This government of wax waxett new formula will not be able to help. From the Rebeuss protocol to the new “Princeton” protocol, the fact is that predatory governance increases social and income inequalities, these push young people also into barsakh convoys », Concludes Diallo.
