    Ged nach eil figearan dearbhte ann, tha na h-ùghdarrasan a’ dèanamh dheth gu bheil eadar deich agus còig deug mìle neach anns an Danmhairg às aonais dachaigh. Tha mòran dhiubh sin as an dùthaich gu mì-laghail. Ach – chan eil an Danmhairg a’ toirt seirbheisean bunaiteach meidigeach seachad, mura h-eil cead agad a bhith san dùthaich. Tha sin a’ fàgail mòran ann an suidheachadh glè dhuilich. Tha Alasdair Friseal ann an Copenhagen, a’ coinneachadh ri buidhnean saor-thoileach a tha a’ feuchainn ri in-imirichean mì-laghail a chuideachadh.

Alasdair Fraser is in Copenhagen to meet with volunteer groups who help illegal immigrants.

    Anns an Lùnastal 2013, chuir an EU smachd-bhannan air na h-Eileanan Fàrach airson cuotathan iasgaich a bhriseadh. Chaidh cead a dhiùltadh dhaibh iasg a’ reic gu dùthchannan an EU agus chaidh casg a chur air bàtaichean-iasgaich Fàrach bho bhith a’ tighinn gu tìr aig puirt an EU – ach ann an suidhichidhean èiginneach. Leis gu bheil an eaconamaidh a’ crochadh cha mhòr air fad air iasgach bha dùil gun toireadh e buille chruaidh air an sgìre. Ach tha tionndadh gu tur eadar-dhealaichte air gabhail àite sna h-eileanan ‘s iad air margaidhean ùra a shireadh. Tha Alasdair Friseal as na h-Eileanan Fàrach airson faighinn a-mach mar a tha a’ dol dhaibh.

  • The Faroe Islands new markets

    faroe_2

    In August 2013, the EU imposed trade sanctions on the Faroe Islands after repeatedly breaching fish quotas. They were refusing permission to export fish to the EU nations and Faroese vessels have been from EU ports except in cases of emergency. As fish makes up most of the Faroe Islands’ exports the move was expected to hit the area hard. But the North Atlantic island group has defied all the odds by seeking new markets further afield. Alasdair Fraser travels to the Faroe Islands to find out how they turned their fortunes around.
