JIGNESH MEVANI’S UNA YATRA NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
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.
Dear friends and well wishers,
As you know, on the one year of Una flogging, the Rastriya Dalit Adhikar Manch led by activist Jignesh Mewani are organising a big event in the form of a conference at Ahmedabad on 11th July followed by a march – Azadi kooch from 12 to 18 July in north Gujarat to carry forward the legacy of Una movement.
For this we have estimated a budget of around 6 lakh rupees. We are a Dalit Rights Group working as a grassroots movement. We are not an NGO nor do we receive any funds from any funding agency. We work and survive with the contribution of like minded friends. For this conference and march, we need to generate funds urgently. So kindly support the cause financially by making a contribution.
