Jakarta, Aktual.com – Secretary General of the People’s Coalition for Fishery Justice (Kiara), Abdul Halim revealed a number of land fisherman fishing in coastal areas to be lost for their reclamation project in the Bay of Jakarta.
“Today is going massively over the profession. At least two days of the fishermen who switched professions,” he said to Aktual.com.
That’s because the construction of reclamation does not favor the interests of the public, especially those who are affected.
“Coastal areas should not be privatized. Decision 36/2010 of the Constitutional Court said that there shouldnot be commercialization in small islands in Indonesia,” he said.
They who switched professions justified by one of the residents Marunda Kepu, Habibah (51). “Many fishermen have to moved to be scavenger because the sea is broken,” he said.
He also confirmed that the reclamation is one of the causes of the destruction of mangroves and fishing area fisherman.
“In the past is so many shells, now since reclaiming it is not there all,” he said.()
