Dharavi Protests

Seven thousand people demonstrated against the plan to redevelop Dharavi, Mumbai's largest squatter area. The group, an odd coalition of squatters and conservative Shiv Sena politicos, rallied outside the offices of the city's Slum Rehabilitation Authority. The demonstrators asked that squatters have a say in the redevelopment plans. Mumbai News Line has more.
