Campaign to Stop the Escalating Violence in India
The Roots of Violence: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles – Mahatma Gandhi
While it is often under-reported in the western news media, there is an escalating internal conflict in India. This involves Maoist insurgents, large-scale displacements of tribal people due to companies expanding their mining operations, and government security forces. The Gandhi Foundation is sponsoring a letter-writing campaign asking all parties to cease the use of violence in pursuit of their aims.
The Gandhi Foundation asks you to write to the Indian Government for a detailed explanation of the situation.
The first campaign aims to address the violence associated with the coal mining expansion in Jharkhand State.
