ANTI-COAL groups from around the country are rising up against the National Council for Peace and Order's move to allow power plants to be constructed in defiance of a city's master plan. Last Wednesday, the NCPO used power under Article 44 of the interim constitution to order an exemption to the city plan law for power plants, gas plants, water treatment facilities, garbage incinerators, landfills and recycling plants, which had been restricted to areas zoned for them on the city plan.
