Migrant Lives Matter Campaign

MWSN

One of the first incidents of large gatherings of migrant workers was witnessed at Anand Vihar Railway Station on 28th March 2020. The images cached the attention of state, media and civil society after which every section responded to this in their own ways. Major section of the response was centred around identifying the crisis on humanitarian lines. #MigrantLivesMatter started as a twitter campaign in the first week of April. The idea was to articulate a right based campaign on the issue of migrant workers and to politicise the so called humanitarian as a social and economic crisis. We gave twitter storm call on 10th of April under the same hash tag #MigrantLivesMatter
