INDIA - Traditional Fish Workers Union (TFWU) will organise a village-level campaign from August 14 to 20 opposing the implementation of the provisions of the Coastal Zone Management.

According to National Fish Workers’ Forum executive member T.K. Rehman, the forum’s all-India president Hare Krishna Debnath, will be here on August 22 to address a public meeting.

His visit is aimed at forging a common forum for fish workers, agricultural workers and adivasis. He will visit Vizianagaram and Srikakualm districts on the next day.

The forum has plans to take up a ‘do-or-die’ agitation next month in Delhi, Hyderabad and the local headquarters of the departments concerned.
