People gather at Idinthakarai, 6km away from the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of Fukushima disaster, March 11,2013. The anti-nuclear protests in the region has largely been peaceful and is led by the women. The movement is funded by the villagers themselves, for which the men has to go out to the sea for work every day. The women gather in front of the Lourde Mary Church at Idinthakarai daily, in silent protest. Organised protests erupted in the region in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in 2011. The Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) has done little to assuage the fears of the local fishing communities of a similar disaster; while memories of the Tsunami hit in 2004 are still fresh in the minds of the locals.
