‘Remember the sea when you go to vote’; ‘We are not hunters, we are sailors’; ‘The shellfish harvesters cry, the shellfish harvesters don’t pay’, contrary to the lyrics of Shakira’s song, or ‘The people who clean, the Xunta who manipulates’, are some of the slogans which can be heard during the demonstration.

Although the contamination of the “pellets” is not comparable to the ecological disaster that caused the sinking of the ‘Prestige’ in November 2002, many groups pointed to the ‘black tide’ caused by the oil tanker and displayed banners with slogan ‘Never Again. ‘ which emerged to demand environmental, judicial and political responsibilities for that disaster.
