[Buddha-l] Solidarity with Kushinagari Farmers

Greetings all,

There was a discussion recently on this list about the FPMT's Maitreya
Project and the controversy on the ground.  I spent several months in
Kushinagar doing dissertation research, and I continue to feel that the
Maitreya Project has abdicated their responsibility to the local people
whose land will soon be acquired.  A group of us have started a Friends of
the Kushinagari Farmers petition. Please at least take a look at it, and
sign it if you agree with that the Maitreya Project should be held
accountable for their (in)actions.


Please forward this petition to others!

Many thanks,

Jessica Falcone
