On March 2nd 2013, three adherents of the longstanding local peoples’ movement in resistance to India’s huge POSCO project, were killed and another seriously injured, in what – according to other villagers – was an attack by “pro-Posco” thugs. (See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=565aksMHUAA.) A few days later, the district administration temporarily halted the forcible land acquisition process after receiving a “naked protest threat” from the women of Gobindpur village.
