We are glad to inform you that P.V. Sudhir kumar Convenor, Endosulfan Spray protest action committee (Kasargod) will be in Bangalore on March 30th 2011. We would like to use this occasion for an interaction and discussion with Sudhir kumar on the burning issue of Endosulfan in this country. Perhaps you may be aware that as per the movement’s statistics, more than 9000 victims of Endosulfan have been identified in Kasargod alone, out of which over 4800 patients are bed-ridden. Over thousand victims of Endosulfan have already died in Kasargod District.
As a result, because of a consistent movement against Endosulfan during last 14 years Kerala Govt. as well as Karnataka Govt. have banned Endosulfan. At the same time rehabilitation and compensation to the victim are still issue to be dealt with Indian Govt. As per our understanding the Central govt. is gearing up to take a stand in supporting Endosulfan in the comingStockholm, UN- Conference in Sweden.
There is a immediate need to pressurise Central and State Govt. to ban Endosulfan as well as provide proper rehabilitation and compensation to the victims. Sudhir kumar Convenor of the movement will give a talk on this issue on March 30th 2011 at 5 p.m. at SCM House, Mission Road, Bangalore.
We invite you to attend the meeting and participate in the discussion.
We request you to inform all friends about this event.
