BRIEF – Sandoway fishermen rally against overfishing, reef damage

Around 200 fishermen in Sandoway [Thandwe], Arakan State, gathered on Tuesday to protest trawlers operating ten miles offshore, which locals say are depleting fishery resources and destroying reefs. The fishermen marched to the town’s Fishery Association office, where they demanded that the government limit the proximity of trawlers and focus on poverty alleviation for locals. See here for pics.
