8th July Public Meeting. Lessons From Seattle: How The 2023 Anti-Caste Discrimination Law Was Won

For the over a billlion people living in the Indian subcontinent, as well as crores in the diaspora around the world, jativaad, or casteism, is an ongoing present-day nightmare, not something consigned to our history books. Now, thanks in part to our socialist movement in Seattle, USA, politicians in the West are forced to pay attention to the brutality of caste and take action. How was caste discrimination outlawed in Seattle and California, and how can we use this victory to continue fighting against the caste system? Join us at 7:30PM IST to discuss with International Socialist Alternative and Council Member Kshama Sawant, author of the law against caste discrimination passed in Seattle.
