Please join the MKSS for celebrating “May Day” on the 1st of May 2014.
On the 1st of May 1990, 23 years ago, poor peasants and workers collected at PatiakaChowda ,Bhim, Rajsamand District- after a year of deliberations about the need to organize and struggle- to form the MazdoorKisan Shakti Sangathan ( MKSS) . This day has become an important day for workers in this part of Rajasthan. We come together every year to express our solidarity and take a pledge to work together to struggle for common, stated concerns.
We invite you to celebrate May day (Labour Day) with us, this year (1st May 2014) at the PatiaKaChowda, Bhim. In continuation of the MKSS tradition, the MazdoorMela will be a celebration and a day for collectively defining the themes for public action for the coming year. This year, amongst other issues, we will make plans for deepening the struggles for better implementation of MGNREGA, Food Security Act, 2013, universal pensions, the free medicine schemeby making effective use of the RTI and Right to Hearing Act 2012 and passage and implementation of the Central Grievance Redress Bill. We will also share our stories, anecdotes, challenges, hopes, and concerns in an open public meeting. This will be amidst the bustle of a mela- the sale of clothes, toys and food at cost price with dance, music and laughter.
We would welcome prior information of your travel plans and the number of people likely to attend, so that we can make your stay more comfortable. You will have to bear your travel costs, but food will be available at inexpensive rates.
The Mela will begin at 9.30 am with a rally from the Tehsil office in Bhim to the PationkaChowdamela grounds. Do please join the rally and come straight to the Tehsil office if possible.
Bhim is 65 KMs South Of Beawar on the Delhi- Bombay highway (NH 8). Beawar is a major railway station on the Delhi Ahmedabad route. In case you need to talk to us on the phone, you could call the phone numbers below.
