india Updated: Nov 29, 2009 20:56 IST

About 400 anti-Posco activists today took out a 'padayatra' from the South Korean steel giant's proposed plant site near here to Puri to highlight the "adverse" impact of the project.

The 'padayatra' was organised to mark the second anniversary of the police attack on over hundred anti-Posco agitators at Balitutha on this day in 2007, Posco Pratirodh Sangram Samitee (PPSS) leader Abhaya Sahu said.

The march, being participated by people from Gujarat, Jharkahand, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, West Bengal and Orissa, will reach Puri on December 5.

Eminent social activist Medha Patekar, noted writers Mahesweta Devi and Arundhati Roy will address them at the pilgrim town.
