The IDSN January 2011 newsletter includes news that: Campaigners for Dalit rights finished 2010 on a strong note with lots of activities around Human Rights Day on 10 December and participation in various international events. In India, terrible atrocities against Dalits continued to make headlines, and in Nepal, the efforts to include strong provisions against caste discrimination in the constitution gained further momentum. The United Kingdom move closer to making caste discrimination illegal, as government commissioned research provided evidence of this form of discrimination in British society.
The staff at the IDSN secretariat would like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year. We shall do our best to ensure that the struggle for Dalit human rights makes further headway in 2011 – and we shall strive to keep you informed about such developments. You can now also follow IDSN’s work on the IDSN Facebook Page.
