One of the fishermen, from the commission that talked to the authorities, explained to his colleagues that they could not talk by the governor, the Secretary of Government, or the Secretary of Fisheries. Instead, they spoke with personnel from the Legal Department and with the subsecretary of Fisheries.

At the meeting, after receiving the fishermen’s request in writing, the representatives of the state authorities explained that it was a matter for the federal government and that the protesters would have to wait for the answer.

As he left the meeting, the fishermen’s representative told his colleagues that they were not being taken into account and that the authorities did not even know what they were asking for.
