We call upon all those, who want to see our future generations liberated from this pernicious form of discrimination, to join us and add their voice to the debate in the House of Commons on Tuesday 16th April 2013 to :

OUTLAW CASTE DISCRIMINATION WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY

Public Rally – Unite for Dignity

Public Rally on Tuesday 16th April – 12.00 to 15.00 hrs

Parliament Square, Westminster, London, SW1P 3AA

 Unite against caste discrimination in UK

Asian communities who have faced Caste based Discrimination for decades are now calling to make the practice unlawful in the UK. A Public Rally was held in Parliament square, on Monday, 4th March 2013 when House of Lords debated the “Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (ERR) Bill” that came up for discussion. The Peers of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Dailts moved an amendment in that Bill to insert a new clause in the Equality Act 2010 to include ‘(d) Caste’ after section 9(1)(c) to make Caste a protected Characteristic in Law. Peers in House of Lords backed this amendment with a massive majority sending signals to people in this country and rest of the world that no form of discrimination, including caste based discrimination, will be tolerated against any of its citizens.
DEMO
In order for it to become law, this bill has to secure a similar mandate in the House of Commons and it expected to come up for discussion on Tuesday 16th April. Steering group of campaigners for caste victims are now lobbying the Members of Parliament directly and through their constituents and we have no doubt that a massive majority would also be secured through MP’s who would vote to ensure that British Society leads the world in human rights by demonstrating that its citizens continue to enjoy dignity and freedom from any form of prejudice including caste based discrimination.
