November 1, 2011
Time:3-5 p.m.
Description:Attend a teach-in focusing on the impact of the POSCO steel project on local communities in the state of Orissa, India.

In 2005, the government of the Indian state of Orissa signed a deal to allow the Korean steel giant, POSCO, to set up a 12-billion-dollar steel project in the state. The scale and impact of the POSCO project have been unprecedented. Despite conclusions by government-instituted committees that the clearances granted to POSCO are in violation of Indian environmental law and Forest Rights legislation, neither the company nor the Indian government has paid any attention. Yet the villagers of Jagatsinghpur have been opposing the project fiercely and with every democratic means at their disposal, for the last six years.
