We need as much support from all over Europe as possible, so if you have any Polish and German friends get them to visit the websites and sign up to the campaign!
In Germany Tim Mälzer leads the battle with TIMS FISH FIGHT (www.fishfight.de) which he will launch in front of the Bundestag on Monday in Berlin. He’ll be cooking up a storm with discards, politicians, press and public. German Fish Fighters welcome! He has the backing of celebrities including Steffan Henssler and Tim Raue.
In Poland Robert Maklowicz will be launching his Fish Fight campaign RYBA ZA BURTA! (www.rybazaburta.pl) (meaning Fish Overboard!) outside the Sejm parliament building in Warsaw on the same day. He has massive support from celebrities including Andrzej Soltysik, Artur Wiecek and Magdalena Molek. Again, Polish Fish Fighters welcome!
As the political battle over Europe’s fishing laws heats up never has support been more critical!
