The crowd started gathering outside the main entrance of the Government House at 9 am. They later marched around the compound one time before they peacefully sat down on the opposite pavement from to the Government House.
Akkaradej Chakjinda, one of the leaders of the protest from the environmentalist group Saving Andaman from Coal, said the protesters came to peacefully protest the coal-fired power plant and to ask the government to scrap the project.
The protesters were closely monitored by many police officers. So far, the situation remained calm.
