People from Chaiyaphum's Bamnet Narong district have lodged complaints with the embassies of five Asean nations in Bangkok to press for the scrapping of the plan to set up a coal-fired power plant in their hometown.
Rallying under the banner of the Bamnet Narong Conservation Group, local people urged Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Brunei, to help scrap the project - because these countries were directly involved in it.
"We will lodge a complaint with the Central Administrative Court too," the group's vice chair Bunn Phongphituck said yesterday.
