Protest over Sampur power plant, Chunnakam oil contamination

Protesters gathered in front of the Central Bus Stand in Jaffna on Saturday to voice their concern at the government's plans for housing and the Sampur coal plant as well as the Chunnakam oil contamination.

Laying forward these three points of concern, the protesters urged the government to abandon plants to build the coal fired power plant in Sampur and demanded compensation for those affected by the contamination of ground water with oil.

The Ceylon Teachers Union and the Tamil National People's Front took part in the protest.
