Essar Steel- Utter Madness

Got this in my inbox this morning. The epicenter of environmental protest has shifted to Claxton Bay where residents are under the shadow of a $1.2 billion dollar steel plant to be built by Mumbai based steel company Essar Steel. In addition to the plant there are also plans to destroy a crucial stand of mangrove swamp, as shown in the image.

It’s the classic kind of EMA/government madness that creates an untenable situation for communities. They have no choice but to protest, get arrested and fight for their homes and their survival.
