Indian Social Institute, Benson Town, Bangalore

  Abstract People’s opposition to Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) is currently amongst the most prominent democratic movements witnessed in India. The Indian Government’s expansion of its nuclear energy program has been opposed here on a sustained and very large scale by local communities who face real risks to their lives, livelihood, health and well-being. Represented by the People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE), the movement has been successful in challenging the rationale for India’s nuclear program in general, and KKNPP in particular, on numerous grounds ranging from technical, legal, financial and safety, for meeting India’s increasing energy requirements, especially in presence of viable, benign renewable alternatives. However, at the forefront of their battle, is the right of a State to sacrifice, at will, the rights of individuals, communities, with their resources, environment and livelihood, for an irrational larger public-good based on State’s model of development. This poses an important issue for democracy, for choices made on who gains and who loses. Speaker’s Bio-data: Fr. Thomas Kocherry, is a well known lawyer, human rights activist, environmentalist, and an ardent crusader for justice – whether it be the rights of our fisher folks fighting their livelihood battles or the rights of the people of Koodankulam who oppose the giant nuclear power plant in their backyard. He is best known for unionizing and empowering India’s ten million fisher people as a leader of National Fisherman’s Forum (NFF), and taking their concerns to the international arena with the founding of World Forum of Fisher Peoples (WFF). He opposes the vicious forces of globalization, and corruption, and the associated rise of a nuclear state, while seeking a more humane world of justice, equity and peace with real education and spiritual growth for our youth and community.
