Nearly 3,000 people held noisy protests on Tuesday against India&#39;s approval of South Korean Posco&#39;s plans to build a steel plant in Orissa, underlying the problems that have delayed the mill for years.
</p><p>
Police said men, women and children marched to the site of the proposed $12 billion plant waving placards saying POSCO&#39;s plans would disrupt their betel leaf plantations and forest-based livelihoods.
</p><p>
While the protests are not likely to force a reversal of the government approval given on Monday, they could make it difficult for authorities to begin acquiring land for the plant that has been a test case for India&#39;s investment climate.

"Posco go back," protesters shouted, according to witnesses.

"Shame on Jairam Ramesh, shame on Naveen Patnaik,"
