Chile fisherman cast criticism at new law

Parliament debates new law that fishermen plan to protest, saying it will favour large companies.

    Fishermen in Chile are preparing to stage more protests against a law they say will negatively impact their business and favour larger fishing companies.

    Lawmakers will debate the legislation this week, which is expected to take effect next year. The law will prioritise fishing companies and impose a limited fishing zone for independent fisherman.
