Organizer/AuthorPrashant Jawalikar
Medha Patkar spearheads the Narmada Bachao Andolan (Save the Narmada Movement) one of the largest non violent people's movements in the world. The NBA is the voice of hundreds of thousands of indigenous people and peasants who are losing their land and livelihoods to large dams on the Narmada river. This struggle led by Adivasi and farming villages is one of the most influential in the world, has reached as far as Washington DC and made policy changes in World Bank and multi-lateral funding agencies. The nonviolent satyagraha (insistence on truth) of the displaced people for their rehabilitation has spanned two decades, challenging the centralization of development programs and envisioning alternatives. Ms. Patkar also spearheads a powerful network of over 150 mass-based movements across India called the National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM). Event is FREE and all are welcome.
