Petitions

You're sitting kilometers away from a forest that is being cut down or from an upcoming road which will destroy livelihoods. You want to do something, help somehow, but you just don't know how. It's frustrating, trust us, we know. 

One of the ways in which you can help is by sending emails and letters to local and national government authorities about the project. Yes, many times the emails go to spam, however, you might be surprised that sometimes, you will receive replies. And when thousands of citizens come together to protest through letters, sometimes, our voices are heard. It only takes 5 minutes, so do your part and send your email today. You can use one of the templates below or make your own.

We would also encourage you to send us petitions which we can display here. Please click the button below if you would like to suggest or write a petition.

Save Western Ghats from railway double tracking project

Earlier this month, Stage-1 clearance was given in favour of South Western Railway; Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd in connection with the Double Tracking project. This approval comes despite some of the largest and most vibrant citizen and youth-led efforts to save Goa’s largest protected area, including the protests at Chandor, where thousands of citizens did a night vigil on the railway track in November, 2020.

Withdraw Draft EIA2020

The Environment Impact Assessment is an essential tool to ensure that any development project considers the voices of the people and undergoes proper environmental clearances. It is crucial for environmental protection, public health, and local livelihoods. The EIA2020 Draft dilutes many environmental regulations, gives clearances to hazardous industries and reduces scope for public voice to be heard. This is unacceptable.
