The following is a message circulated by Bobby Kunhu (http://community.eldis.org/myshkin/Blog/)
As most of you are aware, around 5000 families protesting in Chengara are facing violence and are completely cut off even from basic necessities like food and medicine by a bunch of goons with the connivance of the Government of Kerala.
There are several activities taking place on the ground to provide some relief to the protestors. In addition, we thought it is important to show solidarity in the form of a petition addressed to Constitutional authorities in this country, to put pressure on the Government of Kerala to act immediately and secure justice for the peaceful protestors.
Please do sign this petition and circulate it widely amongst your contacts.
The petition can be found at
