Celebration of "Active Patriotism" on India Independence Day:15th August
Dear fellow activists and fellow citizens,
This 15th August, let us joyously re-dedicate ourselves to our nation with Active Patriotism.
WHAT IS "ACTIVE PATRIOTISM"?
Through the use of RTI Act 2005 and activism, ordinary citizens like us can individually do something for India's betterment by monitoring the government and administration. This is "Active Patriotism".
Come, join us on this Independence day to celebrate and re-dedicate ourselves to using RTI to bring our Swaraj. We are now empowered Citizens, so let us celebrate.
WHAT, WHEN, WHERE?
On Friday, 15th August, we meet at 5 pm at Marine Drive sea face- opposite Charni Road railway station to celebrate. Do bring banners and placards with your own slogans and messages. Come and sing your songs so that we all celebrate our RTI and Independence together. Let us have balloons, and ribbons. We shall of course have our tricolour to inspire us. We shall also have a street play, inspiring music and 3-minute pep-talks (success stories) to enthuse onlookers and passersby in seeking information and public accountability through the RTI Act.
Bring along your guitars, mouth organs and lots of friends.
