Dalit & Landless are all Farmers who Till the Land, Need a Fusion of the Energies of the Oppressed: Yogendra Yadav

13 Jul 2017
The Definition of Farmer Must Change, He who Works with Land, the Landless, the Dalit, They are All Farmers said Yogendra Yadav, leader of Swaraj Abhiyan, speaking to Soumya Shankar from Newsclick in this one and a half minute video on July 13

"Dalit is One who Faces Oppression through Caste, Patriarchy or Economic" : Yadav

"Why Can't Dalit Movement Come Together with Farmers," : Yadav

"Why Can't we have Fusion of These Energies? appealed Yogendra Yadav of Swaraj Abhiyan, joining the Azaadi Kooch Yatra that began from Mehsana yesterday commemorating One Year of the Una Lynching

The Azaadi Kooch March was flagged off from Mehsana in Gujarat yesterday. A total of 150 farmers lead by Yogendra Yadav and others had joined the movement. Five kilometers into the march, Gujarat police detained Dalit leader Jignesh Mevani and more than 100 activists of the Rashtriya Dalit Adhikar March. This happened after the march proceeded in the wake of the police denying permission for the same. Thereafter they were formally arrested.

The police have slapped charges under Section 143 of the IPC. The detained are now out on bail. The march is likely to proceed on its week-long journey in buses now, as opposed to foot.
