Here's an article from the Times of India showing how much squatters care about their communities, no matter how precarious their perch. The squatters in this area--Borivali National Park in Mumbai--are living under the threat of mass eviction. Nonetheless, they are petitioning the government to crack down on small-scale illicit distilleries operating in their community.
There's also another angle here: politicians angling for the support of the squatters. In late 2003, when I left Mumbai, there were perhaps 40,000 families still living in the Park, making squatters in this one neighborhood a serious voting block. Vidya Chavan, who led this protest, was until recently an official of the Janata Dal party, and has a history of vying with other liberal or left political entities for the sympathies of these squatters.
