Indian trawlers

The issue of Indian trawlers fishing illegally in Sri Lankan waters with Child labor on-board is not up for debate or discussion. It’s clear and proven. Our question is, what are the Sri Lankan and the Indian governments doing about it? Over 200,000 Sri Lankan fishing folk is effected daily, let alone the environmental damage. I wonder if buyers of Indian seafood understand where their products come from? 14 year old children are in custody? What are they doing on Indian trawlers in Sri Lankan waters? If you really want to know what’s happening.

TSF workers join the protest in front of the Indian consulate in Jaffna today. The protest is in support of the governments well over due strong stand against illegal fishing by Tamil Nadu trawlers. We all hope our politicians can stand up to the Tamil Nadu thugs and do the right thing for Sri Lanka.
