March for Justice and the right to food, land, water, seeds and forests

In India this month, 100,000 landless peasants, tribal people and Dalits are taking part in a month-long 'march for justice' to the Indian capital, Delhi, seeking recognition of their rights to the resources they need for a dignified life. The march is being organised by Ekta Parishad, a non-violent protest movement whose aim is to see India's poorest people gain control over livelihood resources, including land, water and forests. 

Methodist Women in Britain invite you to join them and many others around the Connexion in expressing solidarity with the march between 2 October (International Day of Non-violence) and 17 October (International Day of Struggle Against Poverty) by praying and taking some form of non-violent action wherever you are.

Please see MWiB's Dalit Solidarity web page for more information and downloadable resources, including a PowerPoint presentation of Dalit devotions created by MWiB. For more information on the march, see Ekta Parishad's website (
