Indian fishermen protest permit to foreigners August 10,2012   |  Source: TNN

Fishermen from across the Indian State of Odisha (Orissa) staged a sit-in in Bhubaneswar on Thursday protesting against the government's move to permit foreign fishing vessels to operate in Indian waters.

The fishermen from Ganjam, Puri, Kendrapada, Jagatsinghpur, Bhadrak and Balasore, took out a rally from the railway station to PMG square, where they demonstrated. The stir was organised by the Odisha Traditional Fish Workers Union.

The union also opposed the Centre's move to set up 40 nuclear power plants along the coast, proper implementation of the CRZ act and rehabilitation of fishermen communities. Later, they submitted a memorandum to Governor in support of their demands.
