National Fishworkers’ Forum
Protest and Rally

Jantar Mantar
10th March 2016, 10:00am

Even after 68 years of independence, the traditional tribal fisher communities are still backward in education, employment and economic development in the country. The plight of the fisher communities in the coast of the 9 coastal states and 4 Union Territories (amounting to almost 3 crore people) is well known yet seldom addressed. Since many years we have been struggling for the rights of fishworkers under the banner of National Fishworkers Forum.

In the Budget session of the Parliament we would be holding a demonstration and rally towards the Parliament in New Delhi so as to draw the attention of the government over the long standing issues and pressurize to meet the demands of the fisher communities.

This rally is organized by NFF and will be held at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi at 10.00 am on 10.03.2016.

Fisherfolk protestMr. M. Ilango, Ex. MLA and Chairperson of NFF will lead the rally and the office bearers, leaders and members of NFF and other fisher organizations will participate in the March towards Parliament.

We request you to kindly participate in the rally and express solidarity with the efforts of the fishworkers community.


In Solidarity,
