Bansidhar Bhola poses outside his hut in Dinghia village in Orissa, India. His hut is the closest to the entry gate of the village. Temporary fences have been erected by them around the boundary of the village to prevent the entry of survey team into their area. South Korean steel giant POSCO continues to face stiff public resistance in Orissa's Jagatsinghpur district where the company is setting up India's biggest direct foreign investment project of 12 million tonne steel plant. These villagers have formed an agitating group, "Posco Pratirdh Sangram Samiti" to oppose the construction of Posco port in their village.
