STUDENTS' CAMPAIGN FOR CLAIM ON NATION

It is a group of students having deep concerns over castist biases of 'Indian' Media & Academia on Social Justice and Equal Opportunity particularly on caste-based reservations. Students from any caste/gender/region can join us. We are clear that it is not mere SC/ST or OBC issue. Any student, genuinely, against caste system can join us. We also seek support from our professionals, intellectuals, workers, and wage earners. Email us at claimonnation@yahoo.co.in with phone numbers and addresses.

Name:

The name of the group has its origin in one of the placards of protesting castist doctors claiming"OUR COUNTRY HAS DISOWNED US". In ‘their’ Nation/Country there is no place for non-dwijas (or SC/ST/OBC) people. Reservation for them is not mere number of seats assigned to underprivileged but a claim of these downtrodden masses into 'their' Nation. In fact by protesting against reservation they are opposing this claim of underprivileged. For us also Reservation is not matter of few jobs or seats in educational institutions. It is claiming of our share in Nation that has been denied historically to us. This is NOT their country only. But it is also OUR country, OUR Nation. We claim it as ours for the simple reason that it is we who create wealth for the Nation by tilling fields, mining minerals. It is we who build roads, bridges, and machinery with our bare hands. THEY are parasites eating off from OUR sweat and blood.

Intensify our struggle

A lot of thanks to all of you..but intensify it..It is so diassapointing that where upper caste media,students,academcicans are advocating their voices through every channels,our people are not doing even to their strength..Media has created such an environment that it seems that whole country is speaking a single voice,the voice of 2-3percent has crushed the voice of more than 90percent of people..I will suggest that take out a rally either near Jantar-Mantar or some other places to highlight our movement..it will help us in two ways first our sleeping people will come up and second there is a possibilty that some media will cover us ..And this is the only way through we can warn the media and their homogenized voice and barking of upper caste students..Please carry on..I am with you.
