Petition demanding public consultation on Nuclear Disaster Bill

Greenpeace has launched an online petition asking the Prime Minister to hold a public consultation before proceeding with the Nuclear Disaster Bill which lets US corporations off the hook for any nuclear accidents they cause on Indian soil.

The companies will have to pay only a meagre amount as compensation. Indian taxpayers will have to shell down millions for the nuclear cleanup and to compensate the victims.

Without any public debate, the Prime Minister is appeasing American interests and ignoring our safety.
