This is a petition to urge all the media outlets to provide coverage for the earthquake in South Asia.
The October 8th 2005 earthquake in South Asia has already claimed 60,000 lives, with 75,000 injured and close to 3 million
people homeless. With close to 15% of the affected area still not reached, these numbers are certain to climb even
Just to give an idea of the magnitude of this disaster, below are a few quotes from UN, Unicef and WHo officals.
Unfortunately, this enormous disaster has been effectively shut out from the US media and the coverage has been spotty in the World Media. To a large extent, this inadequate coverage is responsible for lack of awareness of this disaster amongst general public and hence a lack of response.
With winter approaching, time is running out and media must play it's critical role in saving thousands of families and children from certain death.
As a consumer and more importantly as a human being I strongly urge the media to immediately provide extensive coverage of this disaster and the most difficult rescue operation the modern world has ever seen.
