Veteran Gandhian Chunibhai Vaidya (1918-2014)
The News
Chunibhai Vaidya with people of Mahuva rallying against displacement due to proposed Nirma Cement factory.

IF HE WAS in the US, he would be on the road with the youth demonstrating and demanding justice in Ferguson and New York. If he was in Peshawar, Pakistan he would be speaking up against the heinous murders of innocent children and the military rulers alike from the street. 

A life-long fighter for the land rights of the rural poor, Chunibhai Vaidya passed away at the age of 96 at his residence in Ahmedabad early on Friday morning.  Only a few days ago, he had told his colleague, Rajnibhai Dave, "when I am gone and you write about me in Bhumiputra, put a photograph of me in which I am shouting slogan."

A Gandhian to the core and a sarvodaya veteran, Chunibhai began his life in activism with the struggle for India's freedom from British rule.

STATEMENT ON HUMAN RIGHTS DAY
Justice in the USA and India

Association for India's Development (AID) has always stood by the struggles of the oppressed and marginalized. We have a large volunteer base in the United States and today, on Human Rights Day, we are shocked by the choke that led to the death of Eric Garner in New York and the numerous other cases of extrajudicial killings to which recent similar incidents have drawn attention. Nobody has yet been brought to justice in this case in the United States, and nobody has been brought to justice in India when on December 3, 1984, the Union Carbide plant (now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dow Chemical Corp.) choked, maimed, and killed thousands of people in Bhopal. Human rights groups across the United States and India are on the streets fighting for justice, and on this day we stand for equality in the eyes of the law for all races, all people of color, and holding governments and corporations accountable for their actions around the world.

Struggling to breathe: Bhopal 1984 - New York 2014
Bhopal

Bhopal Survivors Rally "I can't breathe!"  gasped Eric Garner. 

His cry, replayed a million times

Echoes the night of 3 December 1984.


Unlike the people of Bhopal

Eric Garner was not choking on gas 

From a Union Carbide pesticide plant.  


A pesticide plant that could not have heard the people cry

could not have stopped leaking if it tried.


Or could it?
