In this time of a global health emergency when movement and gatherings are a huge health risk, digital and online activism are our biggest tools for fighting environmental injustices and speaking up against such unacceptable proposals.” According to the group, if the draft EIA notification is implemented, it “will prove to be a major setback for environmental justice in our country”."
