The women in the fishery in Hann have organised an impressive Labour Day celebration, May 1, 2018.

Large crowds participated in the May 1 event called by the PARASE Economic Interest Group. Some 500 women joined the gathering in response to the call. Speakers took stock of the situation, especially of the fish cleaning women, who are among the most vulnerable female workers. There were also authorities at the gathering to be told to finally recognise the artisanal fishery at its fair value, including the role of women.

Mundus maris was represented by its Vice President Aliou Sall, who supported this initiative in more than one way. The brief report completed with images is here.
