Association for Indian Development is asking us to fast today to show our opposition to BT Brinjal. By fasting privately, we can clarify our own thinking; by fasting publicly, we encourage others to clarify their thinking. You can join the list of us fasting and find out more at AID-Fast to stop BT Brinjal. If you are unable to fast, you can light candle. Either way, sign the petition.
