People VS POSCO: S Korean steel giant faces opposition from Land Owners

Dhinkia and Govindpur villages in Jagatsinghpur district Odisha have been caught up in a struggle with the South Korean steel company POSCO for 7 years now.

These videos bring to you the voices from the ground and why the people are so opposed to the construction of the steel plant in the area. Some were filmed by Debendra Swain, an IndiaUnheard Community Correspondent who is also an anti-POSCO activist. He was arrested on 3rd February 2013 by the police on false charges.

The project is worth USD 12 billion and the biggest foreign investment in India. If it goes through the livelihoods of 4,000 families will be destroyed.
