Save Alappad campaign strengthens

Campaign to save Alappad against illegal mining has been spreading across online platforms.Online petitions are some of the methods,used by activists.

 Mining here is being undertaken with the support of huge corruption. If the mining continues, by 2020, as their contract ends, the now remaining Alappad will be gone entirely. After the strong waves of tsunami, the need for stopping the mining was put forward. The strikes against this were destroy ed by the authorities and by the past two decades, a land of about 80 square kilometres has vanished. Now, only 7 square kilometres of land is left there. If compared to the loss of land, and the

destruction of the lives and livelihoods of

thousands of people, it can be understood that this mining has caused little profit for the State. If this is continued and the remaining people are also forced to leave their homes it will result in a huge destruction of the land beyond. It will be a terrible mistake. The public sector institutions K.M.R.L, I.R.E are becoming major corruption centres of the nation.

Behind these institutions, a huge amount of black sand is being transported to the private sectors of Kochi as well as Kanyakumari. This has been accurately found out by the natives. All the hearts of Kerala is with the population suffering this crisis.

It is ironic that the fishermen who saved the people during the flood are now being sent away from their homes. This kind of a disaster is unacceptable. If the government is ready to investigate on this, we welcome the investigation, but any investigation without stopping the mining will result in the destruction of the land by the time it is completed.
Hence, the Aam Admi Party is announcing their complete support for the “Save Alappad” strike held by the natives of Alappad. The Aam Admi along with various organisations has decided to do a march to the secretariat on January 16th announcing the support for the strike.

The srrike was visited by the Aam Aadmi Party members under the leadership of the party convener C.R. Neelakandhan.
