Exhibition “Soil Speaks”
If the soil could speak, it would recount the history of tens of thousands of Indians, who are fighting for their rights to their land. Since 1999, these tens of thousands of Indians were mobilized by the massed based popular movement Ekta Parishad and have been demonstrating regularly throughout India. The exhibition ‘Soil speaks’ tells of the struggle of a landless people for their rights.
