  18. 18. Gandhian style• What keeps the big companies going?• Who works for them? Make them see the consequences of their work everyday.• Who buys their products? Indians burnt foreign fabric during the freedom struggle. Can’t we now stop using the products of unethical companies today? A self-imposed ban?
  19. 19. Gandhian style• What keeps the oppression of the state going? Choose not to elect corrupt leaders: Section 49-O Bring a Structural change in the system Abolish ownership Show the state the suffering of the oppressed due to the actions of the state Arouse their guilt
