A new day, an old struggle


In the first week of February, we were back on strike.

This is not what we wished to be doing: the increased allocation to MNREGS in the budget gave us hope, but our local administrators seem hell-bent on denying us access to what is our right.

Our reIMG_20170208_075759quests are not new: we strike for work, for work in our villages (not in faraway Panchayats), for payments on time, for full payment of wages, for unemployment benefits. 

Do take a look at press snippets – they convey not only our sense of frustration, but also our conviction in out struggles and the faith that our system will, eventually, do us right.
