      The recent statement issued by the Amnesty India chapter, unlike the previous one has "managed" to condemn the police excess but ends thus: "Police may resort to force only if other means are ineffective, and must only use such force as is proportionate to legitimate objectives." What a legalistic - state centric attitude!

      What will be the Amnesty International India Chapter's reaction to this form of peaceful protest? Will it ask the "Coast Guard" to intervene and break their necks in the sea if the situation becomes "inevitable"?

      Because I witnessed the real trauma of the women in the picture along with them as they raise questions against the unfair way in which the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant is coming up near their coastal village in Thirunelveli district in Tamil Nadu
