URGENT APPEAL: "SAVE THE RIGHT TO INFORMATION" DHARNA
This is an urgent appeal for support to the indefinite "Save the RTI Act"
dharna held in Jantar Mantar ( New Delhi ).
The dharna began on 7 August, to oppose the government's efforts to dilute
the RTI Act. It will continue until the proposed amendments are withdrawn.
For further details see the attached leaflets.
Campaigns for the right to information and the right to food have supported
each other for a long time. The dharna appeals to all organisations involved
in the right to food campaign to join the dharna as soon as possible, and in
any case before the end of the monsoon session of Parliament on 25 August.
Your participation will greatly help to strengthen this effort to save the
right to information.
Please join soon as the amendments may be discussed in Parliament any day.
If possible please stay for about a week, to help ensure a strong presence
at the dharna every day. You can also support this campaign through local
action, especially by participating in the "referendum" on the amendments -
more on this in a follow-up mail.
