Electricity not at the cost of Sundarbans

With deep sadness I am wondering where the patriotic and valiant people are -- people like those who led the Language Movement and the Liberation War and did not hesitate to lay down their lives to achieve their goal. We are in dire need of people like them now. Bangladesh government is going to set up a coal-fired power plant, a joint venture with India, near our priceless heritage the Sundarbans. It will not only destroy the world's largest mangrove forest, but will also create havoc all around it. The environment will be polluted and people will be displaced and lose their livelihood.

Therefore, people must protest in one voice the construction of the Rampal Power Plant and put pressure on the government to abandon it.
