#Koodankulam – KKNPP Siege Protests on February 27, 2013, Wednesday


People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE)
Idinthakarai 627 104
The officials of the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP), the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) have consistently refused to share any public documents on the KKNPP and to reveal any truths about the various leaks, repairs and the technical problems in the project.  The Indian government and the Tamil Nadu government are also keeping quiet about the drastic situation in the KKNPP leading to various rumors and fears about the safety of the project.
In the light of the above situation, the PMANE plans siege protests in the southern districts of Tamil Nadu on February 27, 2013, Wednesday:
[1] to express our vehement opposition to the recalcitrant attitude and approach of the state government, the central government and the DAE that refuse to give any information on the KKNPP and proper disaster training to the people,
[2] to abandon the Uranium-loaded KKNPP that is steeped in grave danger with leaks, repairs and technical problems,
[3] to remove the Uranium fuel rods from the KKNPP, and
[4] to convert the KKNPP into a National Model Energy Park with solar and tidal power stations, and windmills.
The PMANE will lay a siege to the harbor at Thoothukudi, to the KKNPP at Idinthakarai in Tirunelveli district and to the Poompuhar boat jetty at Kanyakumari. We earnestly request our supporters, organizations, movements and parties to organize agitations and protests at other locations in Tamil Nadu and Kerala demanding the immediate closure of the sick KKNPP units

    The protests are based on the apprehension of possible leakage of radiation and exposure of the people living for ages in close range(2 KM) kudankulam and other villages. This risk can be well addressed by shifting the township for the employees of the Nuclear Power Plant as close as possible to the plant boundary from the present location at a far way place seven(7) Kilometres fron power plant. By placing the family quarters of the employees close to the boundary will, a sense of serious responsibilty can be created in the minds of the employees and this will force them to be vigilant. This can be easily done as the investment in the new township shall not exceed 2% of the project cost and at same time the locals will feel relieved of their apprehensions. It is suggested that the villagers press for the shifting of the employees quarters just on the boundary of the power plant and compul the families(wife and children) of all the employees(starting from top seniority down) to reside there.
