"They want to dig us up, to spoil you, starve you, make you thirsty, poison you ... be brave, we're fighting by your side!" These could be the message of the people of the sea's ancestors to Edmond and those who are fighting against a big Australian mining project in the southwest of Madagascar.
Fishing is the life of Edmond, of all the Vezo. In the name of "development", trawlers plunder "their" sea, and this project is a new curse. To keep faith, Edmond named his canoe: "Aza Kivy" ("Don't give up").
