Landless Marching New Delhi

28Oct07

On a hot, dusty highway some 40 miles (70km) from Delhi, a human column snakes its way towards the Indian capital carrying a unique message of defiance to the country’s leaders: “Give us back our land.” Some 25,000 of India’s poorest people – tribal peoples, “untouchables” and landless labourers – have stopped traffic for nearly three weeks on the road that links Delhi and Agra, home to the Taj Mahal. Headed by a group of chanting Buddhist monks, the marchers say they aim to shame the government into keeping its promise to redistribute land.
