Please Petition

I recently received an e-mail through BCS Istagosthi and wanted to share this information with you. It is very urgent especially for Vaishnava devotees of all backgrounds. I have already signed the petition and I hope that you will also oppose this bridge. Please read the following.
Your Servant, Madri devi dasi

The central government of India is building a big bridge around Keshi
Gath. It is against the will of all the local residents in Vrindavan.
The new bridge threatens Vrindavan's heritage ghat. The governor of the
state of Utthar pradesh is doing this without consulting anyone and not
revealing the plans to anyone. This project is an ecological disaster,
unethical and anti-aesthetic.

The bridge brings a freeway in front of the sanctuary. Hundreds of
activists are against this and we will have a civic uprising with the
presence of respectful leaders, citizens and schools students. Several
Vaisnava Missions and representants of the World Vaisnava Association
will march to the Yamuna and make a public protest. This ceremony is
called bridge breaking ceremony. It is about breaking symbolically a
part of the bridge. Also the press was invited so the protest can be
seen in the national press . More than 500 kids of the Sandipani Muni
School of Vrindavan are joining the pacific march with dancing art. We
only see economic interests of some politicians behind this bridge.
Please join the protest with your signature.

At the outset, it is necessary to mention that our campaign is in
accordance with our fundamental duty as citizens by virtue of Article
51 A (g) of the Constitution of India, which enjoins "every citizen
of India to protect and improve the natural environment including
forests, lakes, rivers and wild life and to have compassion for living
creatures".

Please, foreign and Indian devotees, join the signature campaign to
stop the construction of an unnecessary bridge.
