India: Thousand people protested against corruption

Ten of thousand people protested against corruption and many of them were detained, even their leader, Anna Hazare, who has described the fight against corruption as the “second war of Independence” and said the movement must not stop with his arrest.

The recent corruption scandals, including the billionaire scandal of telecom (U$39 billion) and the lobby in favor of companies and officials involved, have angered Indian people who are now in the streets.

The Congress, joined the government, denied it was a democratic protest, saying the protesters have been detained because they did not accept the police’s restrictions on the number of fasting days and participants.

Indians suffer poverty, in a similar way –or more-  to many other people in many other countries, while in their own land many people gain a lot of money by corruption means.
