Unilever’s irrelevance to Barbara: ‘’Change shouldn’t come from them, I mean, in the end, those organizations are only interested in things that generate money. In my life Unilever is not relevant. We have to find our space outside of it, to do things which are valuable to us.’’

Barbara fears 'game over': ''You know those computer games where you have to fight ghosts then you miss one and you die? That’s how we feel. We know, one day we won’t be able to withstand the problems, then it’s done, we’re ‘game over’.'' Full story?

My friend Elsje offered me to give a poster presentation at the Noordzeedagen, a conference about the North Sea. The word "fishing" was absent from the conference's agenda. That's why I called the poster "De vergeten vissers", the fishers who are forgotten.

André: ‘’Often, fishers are relocated to other ports in order to create beaches for tourists. This changes the place, the place becomes hollow. You can have both, fishing and tourism, and maintain a place’s identity.''

Iker’s wish for better organization: We small-scale fishers are pretty well organized within the village. Regionally we’re not, but it’s important to be. In regional policy meetings we’re always the losers. I don’t know how to change this. @ Basque Country, Spain
