This march will remind Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his new government about the agreement that was made during the Jan Satyagraha 2012 when 100,000 people walked to Agra and participated in signing the historical 10-point agreement.

Yet, this new government has not even taken action on this agreement to date. Instead, it has brought out an ordinance that modifies the LARR 2013 Act (namely, the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act). With such an ordinance being signed, companies and investors are able to dispossess people from their land and thus, they will not be able to have a life of dignity, security and identity.

Ekta Parishad under the leadership of PV Rajagopal decided to organise a footmarch from the 20th to 23rd February from Palwal to Delhi to draw attention of the government to their concerns.  Within these 5000 people there are dalits, adivasis, landless labourers and poor farmers from across the country.


To express solidarity in this action of Ekta Parishad international support urgently needed. Attached you will find a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government with a request for action.


We are convinced that this letter will support the action taking by foot from an official and international context in a solution-driven way. We need to act now!!! What to do: see below and in the attachments.
