TN's anti-liquor activist Sasi Perumal's death: Protests held in New Delhi
Civil Society groups in New Delhi protested in front of Tamil Nadu House demanding inquiry into the death of anti-liquor activist Sasi Perumal. They also demanded implementation of peoples' demand of total liquor prohibition in the state.

The demonstration (Aug 8) was led by People Movements Against Liquor and Drugs (PMALD), Khudai Khidmatgar, National Alliance of peoples Movement (NAPM), Sarvodaya Mandal, Lok Samiti and other civil society organization. 

Anti-liquor protest in Tamil Nadu has gained voice with the people's involvement. Whenever the matter of total prohibition comes to the state government they simply say that the government is getting 30% of total revenue from the liquor consumption.

The people who consume liquor are daily wage earners from economically very poor background, semi-skilled laborers. Now days a large number of youths and students have begun to consume liquor while purchasing it from the government approved TASMAC shops.

Through these protests people are demanding these things from the Tamil Nadu state government. 

1. Implement total prohibition in Tamil Nadu in favour of protecting the people's interest, particularly the women, children and aged. 

2. To set up fast inquiry in to the death of anti-liquor activist Sasi Perumal and take necessary action against the concern police officials, who were present on the spot during the incident. 

3. Stop atrocities against women, students and handicapped, who are involved in protests against the government, since it is the right of every citizen.
