Are you an environmentalist concerned with the future of our oceans? Are you a proponent of human rights who is shocked by the murder of Lt. Colonel Save? Are you a student who wants justice served and people to come before profits?
After reading my dispatch about Umbergaon, write the following people and let them know how you feel about the proposed project, and the police abuse that has resulted in the death of Colonel Save. Point out to them that the port will be destructive both environmentally and socially. Remind them that there are other ports nearby that can and should be upgraded.
Ask for an investigation into the death of Colonel Save, and remind them that police brutality against non-violent protestors is not acceptable behavior for a government that calls itself a democracy.
