nuclear power and displacement

P K Sundaram writes in Dianuke.org, on Nuclear Power Projects in India and Displacement of People

The protests in Koodankulam are neither naive nor sudden. Since 1989, people of the area have fought against the project questioning its rationale on economic, safety, environmental and developmental grounds.

One of the key questions in Koodankulam has been displacement. Displacement is an immediate consequence which the population around most of the power plants are going to face and is becoming a rallying point for protests against these plants.
