Pagkakaisa ng Samahan ng Mangingisda Pilipinas

Pagpupundar ng kapangyarihan ng mamamayan sa lokalidad at itulak ang sustenableng pag-unlad at pagbabago

Proposed by the Pagkakaisa ng Samahan ng Mangingisda-Pilipinas (PANGISDA-Pilipinas), the action aims to revive, strengthen and unify the different community-based and fisherfolk organizations in the coastal communities of Manila Bay (National Capital Region) and use this collective strength and plan to converse with relevant government agencies and local government units on issues related to economic development and resource preservation, among others. PANGISDA-Pilipinas will be working alongside their members in Bacoor, Bulacan, Navotas, Paranaque and Las Pinas. The group recognizes that whilst the pandemic brought massive and deep poverty and hunger across all sectors, volunteerism and the bayanihan spirit have been more alive than ever and they are hoping to keep the momentum going with the proposed action.
