ECAN Manifesto

A common manifesto

A joint Manifesto of the various european collectives gathered on March 9 and 10, 2024 in Marseille, was made public on this occasion, the participating organizations calling for “political actions which tend to eliminate cruise activity, to promote less polluting economic alternatives in the affected territories, to better environmental regulation of the maritime sector as well as general awareness of the population.”

The meeting in Marseille also marks the expansion of the European Cruise Activist Network (ECAN), a coalition of anti-cruise movements founded in 2022 in Venice, by No Grandi Navi Venezia (Venice), Stop Croisières (Marseille), Comissió ciutat port València (Valencia), Plataforma contra els mega creuers Mallorca (Mallorca), Stop Creuers Barcelona (Barcelona), Stop Creuers Tarragona (Tarragona), Ecoloxistas en Acción Rías Baixas e Coruña (La Coruña) or Mar de Fábula (Galicia), joined by new collectives this weekend.
