Robin is the coordinator of Keraleeyam magazine published from Thrissur. He took part in forming the Plachimada Protest Support Committee and now he is the convener of the Plachimada Study Committee. I wanted to know the truth behind the Plachimada anti-Coke protest in detail and wanted to know the motives behind the protest. This interview has cleared many of my concerns and I hope it does the same for the readers. Keraleeyam has been writing about the issue since 1998.
