Sámi fishing rights  

The human rights of the Sámi people are not realized in Finland. Sámi fishing rights have been criminalized. Support the promotion of the human rights of the Sámi in Finland because they are under threat. 

Through support of Alva association you assist the Sámi people in upholding their culture, heritage, and human rights, including their active use of the legal system to bring Sámi issues onto a national stage.


The outcomes of Alva's advocacy efforts impacts the rights of generations of future Sámi people. 

Right now, the Alva association supports four Sámi when they defend their fishing rights in February 2019 in the District Court. Read about the background of the trial.
