People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE)
Idinthakarai 627 104
The officials of the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project (KKNPP), the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) have consistently refused to share any public documents on the KKNPP and to reveal any truths about the various leaks, repairs and the technical problems in the project.  The Indian government and the Tamil Nadu government are also keeping quiet about the drastic situation in the KKNPP leading to various rumors and fears about the safety of the project.
In the light of the above situation, the PMANE plans siege protests in the southern districts of Tamil Nadu on February 27, 2013, Wednesday:
[1] to express our vehement opposition to the recalcitrant attitude and approach of the state government, the central government and the DAE that refuse to give any information on the KKNPP and proper disaster training to the people,
[2] to abandon the Uranium-loaded KKNPP that is steeped in grave danger with leaks, repairs and technical problems,
[3] to remove the Uranium fuel rods from the KKNPP, and
[4] to convert the KKNPP into a National Model Energy Park with solar and tidal power stations, and windmills.
The PMANE will lay a siege to the harbor at Thoothukudi, to the KKNPP at Idinthakarai in Tirunelveli district and to the Poompuhar boat jetty at Kanyakumari. We earnestly request our supporters, organizations, movements and parties to organize agitations and protests at other locations in Tamil Nadu and Kerala demanding the immediate closure of the sick KKNPP units
