A new Dalit platform has been formed in Bangladesh. The new platform, called bangladesh Dalit and Excluded Rights Movement (BDERM), came in to being on April 22. The platform was the concrete outcome of a national consultation organised by Bangladesh Dalit Human Rights, Nagorik Uddyog and others. It brought together organizations individually working on the rights of Dalits and other Excluded communities of Bangladesh in order to increase unity and understanding among them and strengthen their joint work. 42 representatives from different organizations working to establish the rights of Dalits and Excluded communities in different parts of Bangladesh participated in the meeting.
IDSN warmly congratulates BDERM and look forward to joint future work.
