Urgent Appeal from Koondankulam- Take action- Anti Nuke activists will be arrested soon


Dear Friends,

The hunger-strike in Idinthakarai, Koodankulam today has entered its 9th day. There has been no attempts on the part of the government to end the stalemate and start a process of dialogue with the people on hunger-strike. Even the routine medical check-ups and services extended by the govt in such cases are absent here. Yesterday, one of the 7 women on hunger strike in Idinthakarai, Melret (aged 48) had to be taken to hospital as her blood pressure became too low.

S P Udayakumar has expressed his apprehension that once he and other main activists are taken to hospital, they might be arrested and isolated from the local people. The govt then would use this opportunity to force people into compliance. The local administration has already started meetings with local panchayat (elected village bodies) leaders to distribute the 500-crore package which the PMANE has termed as ‘bribe’ to silence and divide people’s opposition.

The immediate demands of the protesters are simple and the government must be forced to listen to them at the earliest. They are demanding removal of prohibitory orders, adherence to AERB norms which stipulates safety drill before commissioning of reactors and revocation of criminal charges piled up against the activists supporting the Koodankulam movement.

The larger civil society and citizens of India must step in to stop this callousness and contempt of democratic dissent.

4 persons from Idinthakarai village are meeting the District Collector of Tirunelveli today to demand  earliest intervention to end the hunger strike.

Please call/fax/email the  Collector office of District Collector of Tirunelveli Dr R. Selvaraj at the following coordinates:

Phone: 0462-2500828 (O)
0462-2577655, 2577983 (R)
Fax: 0462-2500244

E-Mail: collrtnv@nic.in

Pl sign online petition which is sent to Collector also
