Two large actions are being planned for 2020 and in preparation for these several small actions are being proposed in the interim.

 

2020

Jai Jagat 2020 is a global action in which One Million people will walk for justice.  This is expected to be a global action with people in several countries walking simultaneously on issues of justice. The major portion of this action will be in India. Within India, this can be either decentralized action in 200 district or one million arriving in Delhi on 2nd Oct 2020.

March for peace and justice, Delhi to UN office in Geneva. This can be a group of 30 to 50 people, who are willing to take risk and walk a distance of 6353 km over a period of 15 months. This march will mainly focus on  Peace and Justice and will try to draw the attention of UN bodies towards this agenda.

Committees will nee to be set up in each country. People in each of the countries along the route can walk with us  when we are in that particular country. This action will bring a lot more visibility to the issues of justice and can also take the agenda of nonviolence in to most difficult areas of the world. Many other national and International organizations can also get involved in this action.
