Report the huge protests at Idinthakarai

We urge the editors of the English media to report the important people's struggle in Idinthakarai.

300+ women and 25 men are on an indefinite hunger strike against the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant in Idinthakarai. Over 9000 people crowd the protest pandals every day. Your coverage of the protests is muted and a grave injustice to people using non-violent, democratic methods to make their demands.

We urge you to report these important people's struggles.

Status update as of 3:00pm on May 6: The condition of the 302 women hunger strikers has been deteriorating steadily. Two of the 35 men strikers have been afflicted with viral fever and have been isolated from the rest of the group for fear of any contagion among others. The following women have collapsed and removed to the nearby hospital: Soosai Lourde (55), Manjula (33), Sahayam (45), Jacqueline (42), Pasili (36) and Bama (40).
