Description

As the leader of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal, the Liberation Panthers, Thiumaavalavan brings the passion of his commitment to social justice to these speeches that have been translated from the Tamil into English for the first time. Fighting for the basic rights of the people of the cheris, the slums, the humble folk who get trampled on, murdered or raped at will because of the caste system, now bolstered by the ideology of Hindutva, these speeches get to the heart of the prevailing injustice in India’s democracy. Many of the atrocities have not been reported in the media, and thus the book provides a valuable record of what is taking place.
