Jaitapur activist, India

A woman is seen demonstrating her dissent and dismay at the atrocities perpetrated by the state & the police against the people of Jaitapur, the site of the proposed Nuclear Power Plant in Maharashtra.

“The country is at a turning point in history now. Having exhausted all resources that the Governments could lay their hands on during and after the Independence struggle, they have now turned to what remains. The most vulnerable and marginalized of the country who live off these remaining resources are subjected to the highhandedness of the government and its authoritarian ways of functioning. Peaceful protest and non violent demonstration of dissent have emerged as an alternative. Women are leading the way”.
