big bridge being constructed around Keshi ghat Yamuna River

 

I don't normally get involved in political protests, but I feel that
this is something that our acaryas and every saintly person would get
involved in. I recently got the following text from HH Bhakti Charu
Maharaja. Please read through it, sign the petition and encourage
others to support this cause. There is also a Facebook page you can
join: "Stop the Yamuna Bridge"

All glories to Sri Vrindavan Dham. All glories to Yamuna mayi! Jaya
Sri Radhey Shyam!

I received the following appeal just now. Please support this noble
cause
and motivate others also to do the same.

Yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada,

The central government of India is building a big bridge around Keshi
Ghat. It is against the will of all the local residents in Vrindavan.
The new bridge threatens Vrindavan's heritage ghat. The governor of
the
state of Utthar pradesh is doing this without consulting anyone and
not revealing the plans to anyone. This project is an ecological
disaster
, unethical and anti-aesthetic.

The bridge brings a freeway in front of the sanctuary. Hundreds of
activists are against this and we will have a civic uprising with the
presence of respectful leaders, citizens and schools students. Several
Vaisnava Missions and representants of the World Vaisnava Association
will march to the Yamuna and make a public protest. This ceremony is
called bridge breaking ceremony. It is about breaking symbolically a
part of the bridge. Also the press was invited so the protest can be
seen in the national press . More than 500 kids of the Sandipani Muni
School of Vrindavan are joining the pacific march with dancing art. We
only see economic interests of some politicians behind this bridge.
Please join the protest with your signature.

At the outset, it is necessary to mention that our campaign is in
accordance with our fundamental duty as citizens by virtue of Article
51 A (g) of the Constitution of India, which enjoins "every citizen
of India to protect and improve the natural environment including
forests, lakes, rivers and wild life and to have compassion for living
creatures".

Please, foreign and Indian devotees, join the signature campaign to
stop the construction of an unnecessary bridge.
