Phenomenal response to CFD mass signature campaign – brief report and pix
UPDATE: “I am so happy to report the success of the mass signature campaign. We wound up at 8.00pm – an hour after the designated time – and people were still coming in,” reports CFD activist Farieha Aziz. “The response was phenomenal. All four of our letter boxes were full even before the end of the day. We were able to engage with our fellow citizens from all walks of life – from professionals from different fields to labourers, rikshaw drivers and rehri walas. Everyone was asked to read the letter or it was read out to them, or they were told the gist of it before they signed. The energy and commitment of CFD members was amazing. They were out on the road stopping cars, talking to passers by, even in buses when they stopped, drawing people to the camp.”
Over 10,000 letters were signed
