A photo montage: A national day of action on coal

November 16, 2012 6:08 pm

Across 23 states in India, thousands of people got out of their homes and onto the streets for India’s Day of Action on Coal. From rallies by women in Bundi, Rajasthan to Gram Sabha’s in villages in coastal Maharashtra pledging not to sell their land to proposed thermal power point projects, awe-inspiring actions happened all over the country in solidarity with the day of action.

This past weekend marked an extraordinary turning point — the moment when we came together from various regions and backgrounds to share a clear, common message: we want an India Beyond Coal — a healthier and cleaner India, and an India and the planet, safe from the ravages of climate change.

Watch the video to be part of the incredible movement that we’re building and don’t forget to share and spread the message around.

And don’t forget, this is just the beginning! There is still much to do to strengthen the movement for clean energy in India. For now, however, take a few minutes to soak in the inspiration of the movement that we are building together.
