Opposition

In 2017, a petition to stop the construction of coal power plants, including the Biga plant, was started on Change.org. The petition argued that the coal plants were damaging the climate, nature, and agriculture. With the petition titled, “Blow to Our Oxygen Tank,” the petition ultimately reached 443 signatures.[2]
