It is the joint request by the coordinators of the Madras Week on behalf of the people of Chennai on the day of Press conference, Aug. 19, 2011.
If passed, the act will have not just the heritage of Madras protected, but of the whole of the state.
As the banner with a request to pass the Heritage Act is unfurled, about 40 signatures on the spot filled the sheets of the campaign.
Through the Madras week from Aug. 21 to 28, we would like people support the campaign by signing the request.
If you are at a talk or taking part in a walk or a spectator at a show organised for the Madras Day, please read the leaflets kept at these venues to know why we need a Heritage Act and if you too love your heritage to be in tact for the next generation, do say it with your signature.
