Dear Shri Manmohan Singh ji,
Thousands of farmers, representing Bhartiya Kisan Union and other farmer unions affiliated to the Indian Coordination Committee of Farmers’ Movement (ICCFM), organised a massive demonstration in Delhi today protesting against “pro-corporate and anti farmer Budget of 2010-11” by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government under your leadership. The farmers are also agitated over the faulty agrarian policies by your government causing extreme hardship to Indian farmers and exacerbating agrarian crisis in the country.

Send this open letter to the Danish Authorities!
We are writing to express our concern at the decisions of the Danish government to bring charges against individuals arrested during the peaceful protests in Copenhagen during the COP 15 last December.
The international movement for Climate Justice which organized the mobilizations in Copenhagen is composed of many hundreds and thousands of groups and individuals worldwide. We strongly condemn the repression of the Danish state which aims to stifle dissent – dissent which is the basis of any functioning democracy.
