Ways To Save The Aarey Forest

  • All the celebrities living or staying in Mumbai right now needs to come out on the roads and have to stand in the protest to make the protest a nation wide news. (We don’t want the celebrities to do this for us but you must do it for yourself)
  • More media coverage is needed for this case. More coverage means more awareness. More awareness means more participation in the protest.
  • Prime minister Modi ji’s involvement in this case will help a lot in the protest.

What is Section 144 ?

Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) of 1973 authorises the Executive Magistrate of any state or territory to issue an order to prohibit the assembly of four or more people in an area. According to the law, every member of such ‘unlawful assembly’ can be booked for engaging in rioting.

Under IPC an unlawful assembly means an assembly of 5 or more persons who have common object to use criminal force against Central or State Government, to oppose the execution of any law, to obtain possession of any property and to compel any person to do any illegal act.
People protesting there are doing a peaceful protest for a cause that must concern everyone because we all need Oxygen to live right. And without trees, you can only dream for Oxygen.
I request every Mumbaiker, every Indian to post about it, talk it. Spread the word #savaaareyforest because we need to.
