Workshop: 'Mulki Under Seige'
A training/campaign workshop was held by ESG at Padubidri, Dakshina Kannada in collaboration with Janajagriti Samithi, Nandikur, and with support from the National Environmental Awareness Campaign of the Ministry of Environment and Forests. The workshop participants, being local villagers, academics, lawyers and the media, involved in making a mass representation to the Union Environment Minister Suresh Prabhu to not allow the proposed location of the Cogentrix and Nagarjuna thermal power stations on the banks of the ecologically fragile Mulki estuary and take action against the Engelhard Corporation for illegally developing a pigment facility at the source of the river.
