March against Monsnato -Chennai - 12th oct 2013

It was a very well attended march! More than 400 joined us at Chennai..most of them young(wow- more hopes there!!)
after all, all the efforts that went in to plan and execute this MAM was justified..it was a fantastic atmosphere, great march along the Marina Beach..
we all had a great treat of 'thudumbattam' by purisai boys and then a great 15 min street play by "Koothu-p-pattarai' on GMOs, Monsanto, farmers suicides and corporatisation of agriculture...

a great show of solidarity and sooper outcome of a fabulous team effort..
way to go friends..way to go Chennai!!
