Weavers - Artisan Rally in Varanasi and Workshop at Vidya Ashram


Weavers - Artisan Rally on 18th Sept. 2014 in Varanasi
Lokavidya Jan Andolan Workshop on 19th Sept. 2014 at Vidya Ashram

Weavers of Varanasi and Lokavidya Jan Andolan have given a call for all artisans to gather in Varanasi and raise their basic demands. We must tell the governments that discrimination between unorganized and organized sector must come to an end. It is the responsibility of the Central and State Governments that all those who earn their livelihood based on their own knowledge and skills must have incomes that are equal to the salaries of the government employees. All have a right to get as much as decided upon by the Pay Commission. The gap between the present incomes of artisans and salaries of government employees must be filled by the governments.

18 Sept. : Starting at 4.00 pm from National Inter College, Pili Kothi (Weavers' Locality) the Weaver - Artisan Rally and procession will go to the Town Hall where it will turn into a mass meeting in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi (distance about 1 km). This is to focus on the plight of the artisans and demand for all artisans wages equal to those in the organized sector. 

 19 Sept. :  A day long workshop and dialogue at Vidya Ashram, Sarnath. The subject is " Everybody Earning Their Livelihood Based on Lokavidya Should Get Fixed and Regular Income Equal to the Income of a Government Employee". 

Weavers of Varanasi and the Lokavidya Movement jointly invite all artisans to join this program.

Out Station participants may kindly inform us so that lodging and boarding arrangements can be made.
