Please Sign Now! Support the National Ganga Rights Act
The Ganga river (known to many outside India as the Ganges River) supports some 500 million people — more than the populations of the United States, Russia and Australia combined. This most sacred river to the Hindus is dying. Every day, over 3 billion litres of pollution, mostly toxic chemicals and untreated sewage, enters the Ganga, putting countless lives at stake. Elsewhere, the Ganga is diverted to the point that it disappears for stretches that can exceed 20 kilometers. As the river disappears, so does the ecosystem, which includes endangered species such as the beautiful Ganges River Dolphin.
The Ganga Action Parivar has declared Gangas Rights are our Rights! We invite you to support India’s National Ganga Rights Movement and demonstrate global support for the Rights of the Ganga River.
