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