Politico Brussels Playbook: Poseidon Visits Brussels


Brussels Playbook Poseidon

GOOD MONDAY MORNING. And welcome to the last week of frenzied activity before the Christmas break, starting with the customary end-of-year Council meeting on fish quotas today. Alongside the action, here’s a potentially fun-sounding protest to look forward to: “Poseidon … and his Minister for the Ocean call for an end to overfishing in a red-carpet act of high diplomacy,” the Our Fish campaign advised. The organization will present ministers with 350,000 signatures and — we buried the lede here — “a booklet of 33 international celebrities posing nude with fish” this morning. Get a glimpse here.
