Koodankulam Protesters On Second Day Of Occupy Sea Agitation
14 September, 2012
Koodankulam, in Tamil Nadu, India, where an historic anti-nuclear struggle against a nuclear power plant is going on witnessed a second day of Occupy The Sea agitation. More than 2000 villagers and fisher folks, including women and children, entered the sea and occupied it until the evening. As a relief to the agitators, there was no surveillance aircraft flying over their head.
Yesterday, Mr. Sahayam from Idinthakarai, who was standing in a bridge and protesting against Koodankulam Nuclear Plant fell down as the Indian Coast Guard aircraft, which was on a surveillance mission intimidating people, flew low over his head. He was taken to Nagercoil Hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead
Villagers are agitating against the fuel lodading of the plant from last Sunday. On monday, the police brutally assaulted the agitators and hundreds of people were injured. One person was killed when the police opened fire on a solidarity march in a nearby town.
