A search for “Endosulphan victims” in Google lands you straight at Kasargod, Kerala.
Change the search to images and then the haunt begins.
But there are many for whom the picture is still not clear that all these are the result of unscrupulous usage of Endosulphan in the nearby cashew plantations owned by the state. Who are they? Why they are ignoring the pleas of this helpless people? Why this deadly pesticide is still not banned?
Why the state is still studying the issue which is hot for at least last two decades? Studies, as usual may take years, and in the process you may conclude it against Endosulphan, but what about this torture endured by victims? Who will answer them? I believe none, because that is what we have seen in the past for the Bhopal tragedy victims and many smaller tragedies of this sort. Campaigns have gained momentum all over the state and through media to BAN ENDOSULFAN. Good, at least let not be new victims .
Let us support BAN ENDOSULFAN.
