Activists Denounce Construction of New Coal Power Plant in Kenya

NAIROBI – Hundreds of activists took to the streets of the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Tuesday in a protest against the construction of a coal-fired power plant over environmental concerns.

Wearing skeleton costumes and carrying placards bearing slogans like “Clean coal is a dirty lie” and “Don’t be fooled by fossil fuels,” those protesting object to the building of a new coal-fired power plant near the coastal town of Lamu in eastern Kenya.

The protesters say the plant would be damaging to health and the environment, and instead are calling for alternative renewable energy sources, like geothermal, hydro, wind and solar power, to be used.

The plant would involve estimated costs of about 200 billion Kenyan shillings ($1.98 billion).

Its construction, originally slated for Sept. 2015, is yet to begin.

The action took place on the same day as World Environment Day.
