Thank you for signing the petition urging editors to cover the protests at Idinthakarai. Times of India, the largest selling newspaper in India, has reported the protests this morning. This is a small step, but significant.
Last night, the police started gathering in thousands around Idinthakarai. There were rumours of imminent arrests and a curfew. For now, things seem calm.
We need to continue putting pressure on other editors to break their silence. Please share this petition with friends who are against media muffling the voices of non-violent protesters.
