Villagers protest against garbage-fuelled power plant in Rayong

About 100 villagers rallied in front of Rayong’s Klaeng district office on Friday to protest against the planned construction of a garbage-fuelled power plant near their community.

The protesters said they disagreed with the project because they were afraid that the garbage would contaminate their natural water sources which have been used to produce tap water.

The three-megawatt power plant is to be built in Tambon Sark Don in Klaeng district by Saraburi Power company.

It was reported that public hearings had been held to gauge opinions of people in the district about the project.

After a brief demonstration, the protesters submitted their protest note signed by those who are against the project to a district official.
