UK Parliament outlaws Caste-Based Discrimination

 

Eleventh hour change from the Government turned 1000 protesters into 1000 partygoers

For the third time in 6 weeks, Dalit groups, communities and campaign organisations made a call to rally in Parliament Square to continue to urge the government to do the necessary to legislate against caste discrimination in the UK. Our call was again answered as coach loads of people from across the country joined members of CasteWatch UK, Dalit Solidarity Network UK, Voice of Dalit International, Federation of Ambedkarite Buddhist Organisations UK, Central Valmik Sabha UK, Indian Christian Concern, Ravidassia Communities and Dr Ambedkar Memorial Committee GB, as well as scores of regional and community organisations and met at the rally on Tuesday 23 April. The date will now live in all our memories forever.

"Growing up in Birmingham I faced tremendous caste discrimination and ill treatment because I was a Dalit (or Untouchable) at the hands of so called high caste people. I became involved in the anti-caste movement so that victims of modern day discrimination would have a voice and legal redress. I am proud to be part of this momentous day‟: Rajinder Rattu, Community Activist and Managing Director, Neighbourhood Consultancy Ltd.

Sathyamurthy: People’s Poet and Leader Who Lived and Died Among the People

 

Karthik Navayan
 

Today 17th April is the 1st death anniversary of K.G.Sathyamurthy ('Sivasagar') the revolutionary leader and poet from Andhra Pradesh. He was the poor man among the poor, intellectual among the intellectuals and a soldier among the soldiers.

Simple because of his social background, because he belonged to an untouchable community and faced discrimination and humiliation within the CPI (ML) (People's War) party of which he was the founder and central committee secretary.

The upper caste Hindu maoists expelled him from the party saying that he was involved in a conspiracy. Sathyamurthy kept on asking them to explain what "that conspiracy was?" No one explained what that conspiracy was.

According to Sivasagar, he was expelled from the party for the reason that he started speaking about the caste inequalities in the society, untouchability and Ambedkar which actually led to this. For Hindu Maoists, Party means power and money, not the people. 

If he had not been from an untouchable community, his leadership would have been accepted and he would probably have not started talking about the caste problem and Ambedkar. 

From 1990s to 2012, he lived among the general public, touring various districts in Andhra Pradesh: Nalgonda, Hyderabad, Guntur, Vijayawada. In between, he also visited his daughters in Visakhapatnam. He never lived like a traditional, biological family member of his own family. He simply lived like a life time revolutionary with a mission.
