NAGAPATTINAM: Fishermen and fish workers staged a demonstration in front of the head post office here on Friday evening as part of a nationwide protest organised by the National Fish Workers’ Forum demanding the Government to revoke the Coastal Zone Management Notification 2008.

They also raised their voice against special economic zones, thermal power plants on coastal areas and encroachment of the coast by the Government and private parties for several ecologically-harmful projects. They pointed out that the coast should remain with the fisherfolk.
