Meeting of Mumbai Social Forum was held at WSF office in Mumbai on 10th
December 2003. RSCD representative attended the meeting. Around 30 to 35
representatives of various NGOs attended the meeting. Activists from Dalit
sectors expressed the view that Dalit movements are not properly
assimilated in the mobilization process so far.
Maharashtra has a unique history of Dalit activists expressing themselves
through Dalit literature. If we can’t bring them into the ongoing process,
WSF 2004 will be a failure. Hence it was agreed that a special meeting will
be convened to ensure that Dalit segment gets proper representation in WSF
2004. It was also argued that not only Dalit, but participation of women,
slum-dwellers, O.B.C.s and all sections of marginalised sectors of the
society should be ensured in WSF 2004.
