Though we are trying hard to make Vizhinjam Project a reality, there are strong lobbying going on against this project. So we must be very conscious and vigilant. The supporters of this dream project are collecting e-signatures in favor of the establishment of Vizhinjam Port. We need as many e-signatures as possible in favor of this cause. And the time is very short. We need to mobilize maximum signs before 23rd of November when Vizhinjam is being environmentally vetted. You can send your e-signatures through the website www.change.org. Please act quickly. We should make use of the service of www.change.org for our other human rights issues also. Let me say something more about this movement. I am quoting the following explanation from their own website. www.change.org is the world's largest petition platform, empowering people everywhere to create the change they want to see.
There are more than 45 million www.change.org users in 196 countries, and every day people use our tools to transform their communities – locally, nationally and globally. Whether it's a mother fighting bullying in her daughter's school, customers pressing banks to drop unfair fees, or citizens holding corrupt officials to account, thousands of campaigns started by people like you have won on www.change.org and more are winning every week. We live in an amazing time, when the opportunity to make a difference is greater than ever before. Gathering people behind a cause used to be difficult, requiring lots of time, money, and a complex infrastructure.
But technology has made us more connected than ever. It's now possible for anyone to start a campaign and immediately mobilize hundreds of others locally or hundreds of thousands around the world, making governments and companies more responsive and accountable. We want to accelerate this dramatic shift – by making it easier to make a difference, and by inspiring everyone to discover what's possible when they stand up and speak out. We're working for a world where no one is powerless, and where creating change is a part of everyday life. We're just getting started, and we hope you'll join us.
