Help Sunil To Raise Human Rights Violation Of Cleaning Workers At UN

Sunil Yadav, most educated cleaning worker at Bombay Municipal Corporation has been fighting hard against the social odds and stigma associated with cleaning workers at BMC. In highly unfavorable circumstances, Sunil strongly believed in education and successfully completed his MA and M.Phil degree from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai.

Even after completing Masters degree, he was denied promotion in BMC and continue to clean streets of Mumbai in the night and study in day time. He also engages in awareness campaign for Safai Karmachari (cleaning workers) and advocacy at national and international level. Now he has got an opportunity to raise the plight of cleaning workers and their human rights violation at United Nations Human Rights Council, Geneva. He is supported by Prahar, an NGO in Special Consultative Status with UN but unable to fund his tickets and stay. Being cleaning worker with meagre income, its very important for Sunil to speak for the rights of cleaning workers at UN.

Cleaning workers in India still remain one of the most deprived group despite legal protection and entitlement and suffer from everyday humiliation in the system. Therefore this opportunity is a historic opportunity for Sunil to raise the issue as well as build cross border solidarity and fight for the human rights of cleaning workers.

As of now, we managed to raise near about $1000 and still waiting for last minute donations from other sources. We need to apply for visa as there is very short time and also check for booking tickets. I was expecting help from Global Solidarity Fund of my university, but being benefited from it earlier, this cannot be allotted to me second time.

But we are also trying to reach out our friends at Geneva to minimize the living costs so that we can participate. Now all I am expecting to get visa as soon as possible and hope to make a statement this session.
