Indian activist Anna Hazare has begun a public hunger strike to protest an anti-corruption bill - currently before Parliament - that he and others say is too weak to solve the country's problems.
Addressing the crowds as he began his two-week hunger strike, Hazare, 74, called his campaign India's "second fight for independence." He said, "We got independence in 1947 and the white (the British rulers) left our country. But there's no end to corruption, crime and looting. This is now our second fight for independence. Whether or not I live, this fight will go on."
