Kandhamal Never Again programme to be held in Delhi on August 25

The National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM) is organising a convention on August 25, 2018 at Constitution Club of India, New Delhi, in the form of interaction and dialogue between various survivors of communal carnage – from Delhi (1984) to Gujarat (2002) to Kandhamal (2008). Photo exhibitions, documentary film screenings and the launching of a people’s archive of the Kandhamal carnage would be also be held simultaneously, NAPM said.
The programme. to be called Kandhamal Never Again, has been organized on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the carnage in Kandhamal carnage, which witnessed one of the bloodiest episodes of communal violence unleashed on Christian minorities in India. Ever since Dalits and Tribals have found themselves under siege from mobs led by Hindutva fanatics, NAPM added.
"The scars it left behind, the rampant impunity, the acquittals, the colossal displacement it left in its wake, and the omnipresence of fear still haunts the survivors ten years on", NAPM said, adding, "The now termed Kandhamal Day has seen thousands of residents gather since 2008 to remember those who lost their lives in the violence and to express solidarity with others still suffering in its aftermath. This year we would like to join them, to grow their numbers and share their memories."
