Civil dis - obedience
first -all this talk of this idea and that idea is a total waste of time unless you just like seeing your words on pff. Because no one in power cares.
What the people in power care about is votes. They could give a crap about the fish in the sea.
Yes it may have some small ripple effect to call your representative but for the most part thats a waste too. There are only a very few federal rep and senators that have real sway in congress.....where is trent lott when you need him?? Jeff sessions is pretty powerful but he doesnt seem interested in our cause.
What we need is media attention. Only thru the media will we get the people in power to care.
So my idea would be to get a spokesman for the cause or even hire a professional public relations company to issue press releases and media alerts.
Then i propose we really do something. For example, we all pitch in to pay the fine. Then travel out in a group, catch some snapper and hang them up for the world to see and come thru the pass with the media standing by. Another idea would be to stand in front of publix as a group protecting store bought snapper.
The media would eat that crap up. Its only thru action like this we will ever get any attention. We need real action.
Do you think green peace sits around posting enviro crap on enviro web sites. No they do not. They call the media then they ram a whaling boat.
Its the only way.......im willing to give my time toward the cause.

This is interesting. Lets hope this pans out on the reauthorization of the Magnuson Stevens.
Make sure you read the comments at the end of article. I guess the EDF is paying people to do nothing but search articles on fishing and praise commercial fishing. Don't matter what article I read there is always someone praising commercial fishing/bashing recreational fishermen and stating statistics on commercial verses recreational.
