Kudankulam

Protests continue in Tamil Nadu, India, against the Kudankulam nuclear power plant (see PN 2550) which has still not yet gone online.

On 10 December, more than 100 fishing boats marked international Human Rights Day with a ‘sea siege’ of the plant.

On 21 January, there was another protest by the National Fishermen Forum. The NFF secretary, T Peter, said: ‘If the plant starts its operation, the lives of thousands of fishermen will come to a standstill…. Today, on the behalf of NFF, fishermen from 10 cities have come here to protest against the plant.’
