Day 15, Aug 9 --by Garima
Today was an exceptionally cheerful day at the dharna sthal as about 70 new faces from Bhopal had replaced the previous batch. Sakina and Sana did yet another round of AIIMS hospital for Sana's tumor operation and have finally been given a date for the operation. They will now be here in the first week of November for the surgery and medication.
Students from Delhi University joined us today for a interaction with Satyu and Rasheeda Apa. Inquisitive about the history of the accident and site remediation, they put forward their queries and the interaction went on very well with Satyu unfolding the facts about the biggest industrial disaster. Some of them also helped us prepare posters for protest.
People's movement across the country were also demonstrating across India against the violation of people's rights and land grab by anti-people laws. Movements protested the displacement of people all around the country, police and mafia attacks, forced land acquisition in the tribal belts of Chattisgarh, Kalinga Nagar and Sompeta, the destruction of forests, ruining of fertile agricultural lands, adivasi lives and fisheries - all done in the name of development and GDP growth.
