Thepha district, which would house the new project, has the “best-preserved nature” of Songkhla’s 16 districts, the locals said, adding that farmers and fishermen in the area follow Islamic halal regulations and refrain from using chemicals.

The declaration, signed by representatives from more than 100 tambons in the province, said residents would refuse to allow a 2,200-megawatt plant to “sit near our white sand beach”.
