School students in Jaffna, India have staged a protest about the pollution of the community's water supply by the Chunnakam power station, run by a subsidiary of the MTD corporation. The owners dispute the claim, saying that the pollution is coming from somewhere else. The students say that when investigators came to the school they brought no equipment - just threw stones down the well and touched the water.
According to local people, who demonstrated outside the plant, holding banners with slogans like, 'Water Poison - another way to kill people?' 400,000 litres of oil has leaked out from the power station, polluting local supplies. The protestors are demanding the improvement of water supplies and the closing of the power station.
