Action Alert

September 10, 2011; 3:30 PM

The local police has been harassing and hounding the public. They have been arresting people at Koodankulam since day before yesterday to stop the massive hunger strike planned for September 11, 2011 at Idinthakarai village. Since the arresting spree of the Tamil Nadu police continues and have arrested five people this morning, the Koodankulam women have plunged into action. They are blocking the traffic on the main road near the Koodankulam bus stand.
There is so much tension in and around Koodankulam. The police is determined to foil the hunger strike planned for tomorrow.

Please call the Revenue Divisional Officer (91-9445000477) and Additional Superintendent of Police (91-9443080518) to stop this harassment and respect our Constitutional right to protest against the dangerous nuclear power plant at Koodankulam. Please help us save our children and grandchildren.
