“The DHA has plans to construct theme parks, marinas, expo centers, expensive hotels and condominiums on the 14 km of beach area between McDonalds and the Golf Club. This area is currently enjoyed by Pakistanis of all backgrounds. This development threatens to shut out the common person’s free and unobstructed access to most of the beach environment. It will only serve the interests of real estate developers. It will end Karachi’s one multi-class open recreational space and will become a place only for the affluent few.” This is what the Sahil Bachao Coalition has to say.
They also say “come raise your voice with us. Wear blue!”
A protest at Clifton Beach is arranged on Sunday, April 29, 2007 at 5 pm. If you intend to join, meet at the parking lot outside McDonalds.
Sahil Bachao is sponsored by the Sahil Bachao Coalition. For press release and more information, visit sahilbachao.blogspot.com.
