Private vested interests rear their heads

It would be interesting to see the break-up of the 4500 people who have signed the petition for removal of the Health minister. It is highly likely that it would have zero representation from patients and those who access health care. It is doubtful if it would have government doctors either.

B. R. Bhaskar Prasad on Chalo Udupi – “Food: My Choice, Land: My Right” – Part 1

The motto of our movement is “Food, My Choice; Land, My Right.” We have the right to choose what we eat, nobody can question us. This land belongs to us, because we are the ones working on it, hence we have the right to own it. The intention is not just to own fives acres of land but also to resist oppression and claim our rights to live and rule.
