ISIS is being hunted down in Mosul and the Iraqi army has claimed victory. But what does the liberation of Mosul from ISIS mean for the rest of the world and India? We’ve had enough of the western media speculating on the status of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – whether he is dead or alive – but what beyond that? What happens to the region in the aftermath of the Mosul offensive. And are we anywhere close to stability in the region? Support Indian journalist Anchal Vohra as she crowdfunds for her reportage from Mosul, Iraq and finds answers to questions that remain unaddressed.
Last year, a video emerged that showed Gau-Rakshaks beating up members of the Dalit community in a town called Una in Gujarat. The incident gave rise to a nation-wide movement where Dalits began resisting the bullies. On the first anniversary of the incident, Jignesh Mevani, among the most prominent voices of the new Dalit movement has decided to revisit the movement by organising a conference in Ahmedabad and a people's March, subsequently. But it can only happen if all of us contribute NOW.
We are a group of journalists who have covered the other side of the war on terror. We have seen how investigations are manipulated by the police and our system to frame young people. But now they have been cleared by our judiciary and we have decided to come together and help these individuals get a livelihood and get their dignity back. Will you contribute? Can you contribute some funds? Can you share this post? Can you become an ambassador of this cause and ask others to contribute? Only when all of us participate can we hope to build a future that belongs to all of us.
