The decrees of Berlin (Novem ) and Milan (Decem ) proclaimed a blockade: neutrals and French allies were not to trade with the British. The Continental System hurt English industries and helped spur the Luddite protest. On 21 November Napoleon proclaimed the Berlin Decree, declaring ‘’The British Islands are in a state of blockade’ and ‘all trade or communi- cation with the isles are prohibited’, thereby launching the Continental Blockade.
