Eighty Greenpeace activists are stopping
the Tatas right now. What's stopping you?.
Even as you read this, nearly eighty Greenpeace activists have chained themselves to the three entrances to Bombay House. This is the Tata headquarters, this is where Mr. Ratan Tata sits, this is where the destructive port in Dhamra was designed, and this is where it must stop.
They're taking this non-violent action to save the highly-endangered Olive Ridley Turtles, because everything else has failed to stop the destructive port in Dhamra.
Mr. Ratan Tata, who takes great pride in the Tata's shining environmental and social track record, isn't listening to hundreds of scientists, conservationists, or Orissa's local fishing communities. Worst of all, he isn't listening to nearly one lakh of Tata's own customers who have asked him to relocate the port instead of the turtles.
You're one of the people he hasn't listened to. And that's exactly why 80 Greenpeace activists are outside his office right now. They need answers. They need action. But most of all, they need your support.
They need Mr. Ratan Tata to know that one lakh Tata customers want the port to stop, and they've put their personal comfort and safety at risk just to get that message across.
You can back them with one single click.
