CANDLE LIGHT VIGIL Sunday, 30th April 2006 6:30 PM onwards

Jantar Mantar

The violent and forced eviction of people from their natural habitat and homes, be it in the Narmada Valley, the slums of Mumbai or Delhi, or the adivasi areas of Orissa, is a matter of increasing alarm and worry.

It seems to be happening in a more and more systematic, calculated and sinister way. The government is clearly promoting this violent neoliberal paradigm of development at the cost of its people. We cannot remain silent any more. We will NOT tolerate this violation of democracy and human rights any more. Peoples’ movements and struggles from across the country must come together and unite forces to fight this battle against injustice.

NO MORE FORCED EVICTIONS!!!!

NO MORE SLUM DEMOLITIONS!!!

NO MORE DISPOSSESSION OF PEOPLE FROM THEIR HOMES,

LANDS AND LIVELIHOODS!!!

Come light a candle on 30th April at Jantar Mantar to express your solidarity with people’s struggles for their rights.

Please bring candles along with you to add to the lights of hope.

From Narmada to Mumbai, from Delhi to Orissa… our struggle is ONE. This is a critical issue that concerns each one of us. Democracy is at stake.

We must unite to speak truth to power!! The time is NOW!! PLEASE BE THERE!!! PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN DELHI! In solidarity, Delhi Solidarity Group for the NBA and other movements against displacement for further details and route of march contact any of the following:
