Empowering our local communities and farmers.

On February 15, 2017, India’s central government announced the contract for development and extraction of hydrocarbons from 44 contract areas nationwide, including 28 on-land fields and 16 offshore. Within a day of the announcement, protests broke out in Neduvasal, a little known village in Pudukottai district in southern Tamil Nadu, India.
The Neduvasal oil field had been awarded to Karnataka-based Gem Laboratories.

Water Scarcity & Droughts, debt and despair weigh problems, etc. are faced by our farmers in Tamilnadu and whole India.
In addition, this Hydrocarbon extraction Project. NDA government’s push to tap into smaller oil fields across the country.

Youth, Students, Farmers, Political parties and Civilians of Neduvasal village(Pudukottai district, Tamilnadu, India) are against the proposal of Hydrocarbon exploration and extraction project. As huge numbers of farmers and volunteers are steadily thronging and had raised their voice against the Hydrocarbon project in Neduvasal village where the Central Government plans to dig for the fuel.

We believe that this project violates important health and environmental rules and standards, and will have serious negative impacts on the biodiversity and people of tamilnadu.

To understand the health cause and environmental effects of this project are
1. This affects reproductive system and the brain.
2. It is a respiratory irritant.
3. It works an Explosives.
4. This affects cardiovascular system and nervous system.
5. This can increase risk of cancer, skin disease,kidney damage.
6. Carcinogenic effects.

Furthermore, we urge the Government of India to stop this order.
