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.

Time to Stand Up

JAIBHIM

Yes. Guys that’s right on target. All ignited minds in Delhi please come up to show up our stand.
There was a demonstration held at Azad Maidan in Mumbai .It was a large but legally planned demonstration held by Medical students in Mumbai in favour of reservation. But the media did not even mention it .The points put up by the Students’ for claim on Nation is the perfect background ...time to ring some phones ... connect and show the support with full strength and peace. Time to stand up on our feet guys.

Vivek Chaurey, Mumbai
