Anti-corruption rallies were held in Britain and France.

Indian expatriates in Europe have come out in support of Anna Hazare’s campaign with anti-corruption rallies being held in Britain and France.

In London, people in Gandhi caps and wrapped up in the Indian tri-colour gathered near India House to demand a strong and effective anti-corruption law. They carried placards and raised slogans calling for a “corruption-free India”.

“We are ordinary Indians and our message is simple and clear: we want an effective and transparent system to check corruption and we want everyone regardless of their political affiliation to support Anna’s campaign,” said one protester.

A rally was also held outside the Oval cricket ground, the venue of India-England Test match.

“People are the victims of corruption,” he said.
