Protests against Posco in Orissa continue

POSCO is a Korean owned multinational who in the early years of this century struck a deal with the Indian government to build a $12 Billion project in Orissa consisting of mines, a steel plant and a port. Local communities have consistently fought against this project on the grounds that it is a massive land grab in favour of a big company with many negative social, economic and environmental effects for the local people. The Orissa government has consistently repressed any demonstrations with many arrests over the years. There is an ongoing solidarity campaign.
