Hundreds of people participated in the protests in Venice, Italy. Since the corona crisis, a huge cruise ship has appeared there again. Many residents strongly oppose the big boats full of tourists in their cities.
Hundreds of protesters went into the water by boat. As soon as we arrived on the cruise ship, there was a lot of noise and flags flying.
Hundreds of cruise ships have sailed to the city center for many years. Restaurants and hotels make a lot of money from it. But many residents find that their city is too busy.
But due to the corona, Venice suddenly became quiet. There were no cruise ships for a year and almost no tourists. Many residents do not want to return to the old situation. Now that the first cruise ship is back, they are afraid that the trouble will start again.
The Italian government promised that cruise ships will have to dock outside the city in the future. But this is only possible if a special mooring position is made for it. As long as it does not, the action against the cruise ship will continue.
