Villagers pose for a portrait in Kanaguli village of Kothi Gram Panchayat in district Jagatsingpur, Orissa, India. The deal with POSCO has been met with protests by the local people, but the government continues to turn a blind eye to the concerns and dangles the carrot of employment generation. In retaliation, the villagers have erected the fences for the protection of 1,235 acres of land to be acquired by Posco company. Proposed steel project would displace all families of this village so they are determined not to leave their soil. If the plant is constructed, the villagers from Dhinkia will be the first ones to be displaced.
