The rally has been organised to protest against the mob-lynchings witnessed at various parts of the country over the last few days. Besides politicians, leaders of labour unions and social workers, the activists that participated in the protest recently held at Bandra will also be part of the March.

According to the organisers, the walk of solidarity will speak against communalism, castiesm and fascism. Satyen Bordoloi, a Mumbai-based filmmaker who was also an active part of the Bandra event, said, “This time, political organisations will be joining the protest. This may bring in more people. The march will be followed by cultural programs for minorities at Chaityabhoomi.”
