Already, the online petition platform has been put to good use. Umang Choudary an activist from Jharkhand began a petition on GPx with the objective of holding a company accountable for illegally dumping toxic waste in his village. His efforts, along with support of locals, has forced the company to stop the illegal dumping of toxic waste, and a local order is pending in the matter of compensation from the company for damages caused.
Priority will be given to environmental campaigns initiated on the website. If a campaign has potential and is critical, it will be pushed through a team of online Greenpeace India volunteers and through Greenpeace India’s social media networks.
