An Update On The Struggle Of Indigenous Fisher Folk In South Africa (Afrikaans Language)

In this interview, John Cloete from Radio West Coast  interviews Naomi Cloete, a small-scale fisher from Paternoster, and they talk about the reality of the poverty that fishermen live in, they talk also about how generation after generation of fisher-boys become fishermen because there simply is no other life for them on these shores. Naomi also tells us how fisher folk has to suffer, partly because of policy but more worryingly by the national silence that shrouds the Indigenous Peoples of the Western cape coastlines.
