It is utterly disappointing that another landfill is coming up amidst of thickly populated area in Crossing Republik, Ghaziabad.
4 years ago, it was in pursuit of this dream that me and my family shifted to Crossing Republik from Vaishali, Ghaziabad. The rotting mountain of waste in the Ghazipur landfill was impossible for us to live next to.
The poisonous gases made everyone sick, especially my 7 year old son.
But now here in Crossing Republik too, the government plans to set up a waste processing cum bio CNG plant in the area. The proposed plant will be very close to residential areas, putting those around it, under severe threat.
I am very thankful that you all supported the cause of cleaning the Ghazipur landfill and we all fought together and won. I request you to please show your support by signing and sharing my this petition for Crossing Republik, Ghaziabad. Click here to sign the petition. Please share it as much as possible.
It is with immense joy that I am sharing this fantastic update with all of you today! I met with Mr. Anurag Kundu, Chairperson, Delhi Commission For Protection of Child Rights today, and delivered this petition to him. Anurag ji, listened to me patiently and offered his generous support and guidance to make this demand a reality. Thank you Anurag ji, for taking the time out to show me the way forward.
As we move ahead with full force, I would also like to share my immense gratitude with all of you! Like I always say, it is your support that has kept me going and will give me the strength to continue on this journey towards change. Share this petition ahead, so that this community only grows!
Today I took another massive step forward for our campaign. I met with Sh. Praveen Kumar, Principle Judge (HQs), Delhi Family Court, Dwarka and submitted my appeal to him. He said that the appeal will be considered and will be sent to a committee for further review.
I was also pleased to see that the children’s room in the Dwarka Family Court was in a much better condition, and I only hope that the children complex room in the Tis Hazari Family court too is made the same, if not better.
This campaign has been ongoing for close to 3 years and it is the support of 75,000+ people like you that has kept me going. Share this petition ahead so that we reach 1 lakh signatures. 1 lakh citizens, who are rooting for Delhi’s courts to be safer for its children.
It gives me great pleasure to share with you that my story was covered by Times Of India. A story highlighting the challenges that single women go through to fight the “paperwork patriarchy”.
Navigating this world as a single mother is not easy, especially when systems that are meant to support you are operating on patriarchal values, apathy and indifference. It is this indifference that I am trying to fight through my petition as well. If my petition to upgrade the Children’s Complex Rooms in Delhi’s courts reaches success, it will be a huge win for our children who are suffering at the hands of this indifference.
Your support has inspired me to keep going, and not give up. Share this petition ahead so that our collective vision soon becomes a reality.
Thank you once again for you unwavering support, Richa
The focus is back on the incredible role schools can play in helping children recognise, fight and report sexual abuse but also on what is considered good behaviour. You all must have seen the Kerala High Court’s comment about the shocking rise in sex crimes among minors. Justice Bechu Kurian Thomas has directed CBSE among others to issue necessary orders making it mandatory for every school in the state under their control to include a “Prevention-Oriented Program on Sexual Abuse. This is a big deal for the movement to make children safer. It has strengthened our resolve to persuade CBSE. I had written to CBSE in April (Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Month) and have been waiting to this day for a response. Now with the Kerala HC’s directive, I am going to renew my efforts to meet the board chairperson. Let’s spread the word.
NEXT STEP TO BE TAKEN: I currently have 2.7 lakh signatures and need just 30,000 more to cross the 3-lakh signatures mark. If you know anyone who cares of child safety then please send this petition to them.
