Urgent message from Madhu, on behalf of the Bhopalis, protesting at Jantar Mantar
Its been more than 40 days since the Bhopalis are sitting on an indefinite strike at Jantar Mantar after having walked 800 kms from Bhopal to Delhi. Many of you have visited them at Jantar Mantar and also participated in their demonstration. While the Bhopalis have met every possible official and politician, except the Prime Minister (whom they have been trying to meet since January ’08), so far there has been a deafening silence from the other side. Today, there was a slight chance of meeting Sonia Gandhi, but then we were told she was too busy.
Meanwhile, 400 more bhopalis have joined us at Jantar Mantar today and we taking out a rally from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar at 11 am on 13th May (Tuesday). We request our Delhi friends and Bhopal supporters to join the rally in solidarity. Pls come infront of Kamani auditorium by 11 am so that we can start the rally on time.
