Getting Marginalized and Surviving

  • Bharat Patel


The chapter presents a practitioner’s account of the marginalization of the Pagadiya fishing community along the Mundra Coast due to rampant and unplanned industrialization. It depicts how a traditional community that practised sustainable fishing got marginalized. This marginalization started with the exploitation of nature, starting with the ocean. The chapter explains the struggle of the Pagadiya community to secure their rights and livelihoods through collective action.
