Le Corbusier's Interview on philosophy behind Open Hand Monument

'Free the Open Hand Campaign' is people's initiative to set the Open Hand Monument, Chandigarh free for the citizen to visit without hassles .
Le Corbusier Visualized it as a temple of democracy.
The Open hand monument stands for the vision ' Open to receive and open to give' & also was meant to be a place where citizens can hold public debates on City's present days issues.
But today it lies Cordoned off from citizens as they need permission from various administrative departments to just visit it.
The citizen's right to move in their own city is grossly being challenged.
Atleast dozen gunmen point AK 56 when you approach the road to Open hand.
All on the name of Security? Who's security? Sector 17 doesn't have that much security forces for us.
Then why here? For the RED BATTI BRIGADE!!
Time to fight it back , and set the Open Hand free.
For we love our city- City beautiful.
