Kudankulam - a chain reaction of protests

While the government sees the nuclear power plant as a solution for the growing energy crisis and has demanded all the power to be generated for Tamil Nadu, anti-nuclear activists and locals have been vocal and steadfast in their opposition to the plant. The protests have now spread to Chennai. Compiled by Sharanya Kannan

Nuclear energy is a good temporary solution till the time we devise ways
and means to harness solar, wind and tidal energy to its full potential.

Big time mistake going radioactive. Tell me, why nuclear? With all the radioactive garbage and very dangerous legacy of the huge stockpile of used radioactive rods, constantly accumulating!
India has great solar potential. Who decided to waste your future?
A future freak show of birth defects and mutations are inevitable.
India change this course while you have this brief chance to go SOLAR!

A high risk nuclear power plant is a great danger posed in an area where even primary health care facilities are absent. From the pictures of the reactor building itself it is evident that there is a large scale deficiency in the design of the protective dome structure itself. Indian engineers do not have thorough knowledge of the Codal requirements of building design and construction and given the public sector identity of the plant it is likely that serious oversight and liberal deviations would have been passed by the approving engineers. In this scenario it is essential to create confidence in the masses (mostly poor and illiterate) by providing rescue and rehabilitation facilities in large scale in the form of fully staffed Hospitals every 5KM, emergency refuge buildings like night shelters etc in hundreds of numbers spaced at every 1KM inter-distance for a minimum radius of 20 KM around the plant since we cannot guarantee accident free operation of the plant and safety of masses.
