Media briefing and outreach in Southern India

June 23, 2015: The GRP team together with the CSE’s Media Resource Centre organized a two day media briefing workshop on June 17-18, 2015 at Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. The workshop brought together more than 35 journalists from four states - Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. 

Lessons from Kakarapalli

We were standing at the edge of what looked like a swamp—grass and pools and streams. On one side was heavily barricaded land with high walls, barbed wires and armed security. A board read: East Coast Energy, Kakarapalli. This was where a bloody battle had taken place a few months ago. People protesting the takeover of their wetland were shot at and three lost their lives. Now the site of the 2,640 MW thermal power plant is under siege—locked and in court.
