[Machine Translation] In India, opposition to the plan for the world’s largest nuclear power plant does not stop. EDF hopes to install six EPR reactors at the Arabian Sea in Jaitapur. Its opponents believe the site is conducive to earthquakes. And one more anti-nuclear demonstration! Sunday, August 20, several thousand people converged on Madban, an Indian village on the coast of Konkan, stretching between Bombay and Goa. After a 5-kilometer walk, farmers and fishermen, accompanied by their families, organized a sit-in near a promised land at EDF, on a plateau about twenty meters high overlooking the Arabian Sea. As in the 150 rallies that have already taken place in the last ten years, the inhabitants of the region expressed their dismay at the six third generation pressurized water reactors (EPRs) that the French electrician is planning to build there, Which would be the world’s largest nuclear power plant with an installed capacity of 9.9 gigawatts.
