It’s nearly a decade now that people from all walks of life in Bangladesh have been protesting against the Rampal Coal-fired power plant near the Sunderbans. In June, the World Heritage Centre of UNESCO has declared the largest mangrove forest on earth as a ‘World Heritage in Danger’ site. Songs have been written and street plays are staged to alert the government that risking the forest, that is considered our natural defence against tropical storm and cyclone, amounts to risking our future. The government stubbornly went ahead with the plan. Refat Bin Islam Rupam joins the people’s movement with his drawings and illustrations
