Five thousand fishermen from the North in one thousand boats will enter Rameswaram shortly on a sailing protest and to seek the immediate halt of poaching by the Indian fishermen in Sri Lankan waters.

Minister Douglas Devananda said that he intends to lead the sailing protest by the fishermen of the North to Rameswaram to bring an end to poaching by Indian fishermen in Sri Lankan waters.

He added that the sailing protest to Rameswaram is also meant to attract the attention of the international community to the injustices perpetrated by Indian fishermen and the State Government of Tamil Nadu on Sri Lanka.

The Minister said they have planned to adopt a three step protest campaign and they want to complete all the three stages within the 45 day annual ban of fishing maintained in Tamil Nadu.
