Justice for Brutal Shooting on Civilians by TamilNadu Government in favor of Sterlite
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
There is a state called Tamil Nadu in Indian subcontinent. In Tamil Nadu, there is a port city called Thoothukudi (a.k.a. Tuticorin). In Thoothukudi there is a Sterlite plant which belongs to Vedanta group.
People living in villages near Sterlite have been protesting against Sterlite, May 22 is the 100th day of protest. They are protesting because they are having severe health problems because of Sterlite, many, including children, have got cancer.
People claim that they have been giving petitions and letters to everyone they know, from Thasildar to collector to pollution control board to CM, for the past around 20 years. And the whole government machinery did nothing on their letters and petitions inspite of emerging health disaster.
Since govt did not do anything even after they protested for 100 days, today, the 'joint committee against Sterlite' called for a massive protest march on 22nd May, today.
The march started today morning and from visuals we can see that lot of people including elderly and children participated in it.
After the march entered the collectorate, police started firing. So far 8 people have been killed because of police firing!
One need not say that we are extremely angry on TN government and police for killing people to protect a private company!
