EU Common Fisheries Policy petition

Dear All please take a few minutes to sign this e-petition. The EU Common Fisheries Policy is currently under reform. We are aiming to ensure the policy will rebuild EU fish stocks and introduce sustainable practises. Currently we can only feed ourselves from EU waters for 6 months of the year. The rest of the time we take from poor countries such as those in Africa. This must stop. As importantly would you please pass this on to 20 contacts - public pressure on MEPs & MPs really does make a difference.
Thank you, Mary.

Subject: CFP E-petition is back on-line.
To: Stephen Eades

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to inform you that our e-petition on CFP reform is now back on-line. Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

The petition is on the Home Page of our website, and the address is http://www.foe.co.uk/campaigns/biodiversity/press_for_change/fish_extinc...

The perition is an important part of our campaign, and it urges Richard Benyon, UK Fisheries Minister, to stand firm in the face of those countries, led by Spain and France, who are resisting real and genuine reform. We ask you to send news of this petition to your members, family and colleagues, urging them and their friends, family and colleagues to sign too - what we call the chain effect. That way, Richard Benyon knows the importance of our commitment and thinking on these matters.

We are also launching now another key element of our CFP reform campaign - a lobby of the MEPs on the European Parliament's Fisheries Committee, with a simultaneous lobby of the EU Fisheries Ministers on the Council of Ministers. These particular Ministers and MEPs are the key decision-makers on CFP Reform. The lobby is aimed at persuading them to support our campaign for real and genuine reform - a CFP that delivers food security and stocks rebuilt to historically referenced levels, using marine reserves and the re-employment of displaced fishermen and their vessels as the managers of these reserves.

Each MARINET member and suppporter is invited to take on the challenge and responsibility for lobbying one of these MEPs andone Minister, and seeking to persuade this MEP and Minister to deliver genuine CFP reform based on food security. To sign-up to this Action, simply reply to me and I will send you full details.

Your support is appreciated. Please do promote the e-petition, and I hope you will sign-up to the lobby action of key MEPs and EU Ministers.

Sincere regards,
Stephen Eades.
