Protest to reclaim public playground on Nov 28th

The ‘I Change Indiranagar’ initiative has been formed by the residents to raise a collective voice against various issues plaguing Indiranagar, issues that have converted Indiranagar from a peaceful neighbourhood to an uncontrolled illegal commercial area, flowing with sewage and garbage strewn.

We wish to invite you to a peaceful protest against encroachment of a public playground. The background of the issue can be read here: Public playground in Indira Nagar converted to private cricket camp?

A peaceful demonstration has been planned by the residents of Indiranagar 1st Stage to reclaim the playground on November 28th 3.30 pm at the playground. We now solicit your support on the matter so we could jointly reclaim the public property and restore it to the rightful owners – the general public and nearby schools and colleges.
