By Friends Of The Earth
22 November, 2012
Resolution in solidarity with the people fighting against the construction of the Koodankulam nuclear power plant in India and against nuclear power plants in other Asian countries
We, Friends of the Earth International, the largest federation of grassroots environmental justice organizations from 76 countries with over two millions of supporters, gathered at our 2012 Biennial General Meeting 2012 in El Salvador express our solidarity with the people in Kundankulam, India, who are fighting against the construction of the Kundankulam nuclear power plant. Similar struggles are also taking place in Malaysia and South Korea and Friends of the Earth International expresses our solidarity also with these struggles.
We reject the propagation of nuclear power plants in the world as it is a dangerous and dirty source of energy that puts peoples’ lives in danger;
We strongly oppose the construction the Kundankulam nuclear power plant on the land of the people of the state of Tamil Nadu, India, putting their lives and livelihoods at risk against their wishes and without their consent;
We condemn the criminalization of anti-nuclear activists and the communities who are fighting to protect their rights.
We demand that the government of India immediately stops the construction of the Kundankulam nuclear power plant, drops all legal actions against communities and anti-nuclear activists, and ensures the rights of the people to life and livelihood.
We also express our solidarity and support for the struggles of our member groups in Malaysia and South Korea for being nuclear free countries.
