Opposing the Jaitapur nuclear power plant, India

“Vaishali Patil, a Konkani activist, is at the forefront of the struggle against the coming up of the proposed Nuclear Power Plant at Jaitapur in Maharashtra. Women like Vaishali from all walks of life are paying serious heed to the process of development happening around them and the impact it will have on the people who will be affected and the people who are the proposed beneficiaries. A concrete understanding of issues has been the focus of women activists working with various caste and class groups around the country. Many names remain unknown but the spirit of fighting injustice drives all of them.”
