Songkhla: Residents protesting against plans for a new coal-fired power plant and sea port in Thepa district held their own "public review" Tuesday.
The move followed their boycott of the third and final public hearing on the Environmental and Health Impact Assessments (EHIA) for the 2,200 megawatt power plant and sea port, organised by project owner Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat).
"We believe the session held by Egat is not fair for those who don't agree with the project," said Isdares Hayeeda, deputy mayor of Thepha district municipality.
