A number of Ashkelon residents, local organizations and green activists protested in Jerusalem Sunday against the proposed construction of a coal-fired power plant in Ashkelon.

Last month, National Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau told The Jerusalem Post  that pushing forward Project D, as it is known, was essential to secure the country’s electricity supply.

Several environmental and local authority groups have been delaying the construction of the plant since 2002 because of the harmful levels of pollution coal-fired power plants cause.The government was expected to discuss the proposed plans on Sunday.
