About

Can one fight for one’s fundamental rights without resorting to violence?

In 2012, hundreds of thousands of Adivasis, India’s indigenous people, embarked upon a country-wide march spanning hundreds of kilometres to demand a life of dignity.

Adivasis have borne the brunt of India’s destructive agricultural policies and large-scale infrastructure projects, as land grabs and environmental destruction have robbed them of their homes and traditional existence. Millions Can Walk provides insight into their lives and, in bearing witness to the philosophy of non-violent resistance at the heart of this epic march, offers an inspiring tribute to their perseverance.
