A dozen professional high-rise climbers affiliated to Greenpeace protested against Essar’s coal mine project in Madhya Pradesh by unfurling a giant 36×72-foot banner on the 180-ft tall building’s facade in Mahalakshmi.
As the company struggled to get the banner, which read We kill forests: Essar, a dozen Greenpeace activists dressed in tiger costumes hung on to ropes for over five hours.
The climbers included music composer Dhirender Mulkalawar, call centre executives, former communication directors, farmers and marketing executives.
Police said 12 activists, who were detained, would soon be arrested. “They will be booked for trespassing and attempt to suicide, as they endangered their lives,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Vinayak Deshmukh, Zone III.
Professional climbers gained access to the building four days ago by posing as floor cleaners. While two ‘peacekeepers’ stood at the terrace door to negotiate with Essar officials, around 60 activists shouted slogans outside the building.
