Save the Koodankulam Protesters

------Original Message------
From: Ricken Patel -
Subject: Save the Koodankulam Protesters
Sent: May 8, 2012 5:45 PM

Dear friends across India, Over 6,000 people are facing charges for their peaceful opposition to a Tamil Nadu nuclear plant, and 300 have started a hunger strike demanding their right to peaceful protest. If we stand with them now, we can force the government to drop this oppressive attack. Sign the petition now: Over 6,000 people face prison for their non-violent opposition to a massive nuclear plant in Tamil Nadu. Now, many of them have commenced an indefinite hunger strike in a last-ditch attempt to save their freedom and stop the nuclear plant. If we support them now we can force the government to stop this illegal persecution of peaceful protesters. Authorities are cracking down mercilessly on the villagers opposing the Koodankulam nuclear plant. Mothers have been forced to feed their babies sugar water as a government blockade has stopped milk as well as other food and drink. Over 6,000 villagers have been charged for their protests. But the hunger strike is putting pressure on local officials to drop these charges. Together we can make a difference. Click here to sign the petition urging the Tamil Nadu and central governments to drop all charges against these non-violent protesters and allow them to freely exercise their constitutional rights: The Fukushima disaster in Japan in 2011 provides unambiguous testimony of the dangers of nuclear power, and the Koodankulam plant has also been constructed in an area susceptible to earthquakes and tsunamis. But the struggle in Tamil Nadu is about something even greater than threat from a very dangerous technological dream. It is about the collapse of freedom in a country that has long claimed to be the world’s largest democracy in the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi. Over 300 men and women have now started an indefinite hunger strike to call on authorities to drop the charges -- and they urgently need our help while they still have their health and lives.
