HUNDREDS of local people blew whistles to show their opposition to a potash-mining project throughout a public hearing yesterday.
The hearing took place at a school in Udon Thani's Muang district to gather opinions from people who will be affected by the planned potash mine.
Given that this project has drawn stiff opposition from locals for more than one decade, 1,200 police and 400 soldiers were mobilised to ensure the forum was able to go ahead.
