Direct action: UPDATE

I posted yesterday about how we managed to secure a raid on a road works contractor that was employing children that were paid with government money to tarmac the roads around Bhavnagar. Unfortunately the case against the contractor has been dropped (before it even began) due to “politics” and so no one from either the contractor or the local government will be held accountable for breaking the law.

This is one of the reasons why our work focuses on changing the attitudes of ordinary people, and empowering children, so that one day, hopefully, the people in power will fulfill their commitment to their citizens.
