Sri Lankan National Fisheries Solidarity Movement (NAFSO)
NAFSO is a fisher people-based movement fighting for human rights, sustainable development, and peace across Sri Lanka. Launched in 1993, NAFSO currently has about 12,000 members, including small scale artisanal fishers as well as agricultural and industrial workers. The group partners with 17 other groups in local and national campaigns for food sovereignty, land rights, education, and women’s empowerment.
A 2012 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported a film festival, study circles, and other educational projects at ten locations in Sri Lanka.
