About the Webinar
FastForward Justice is organising a Webinar on COVID-19 and the Rights of the Migrant Workers.
Ever since the nationwide lockdown was announced in light of the coronavirus outbreak in India in March, reports of the plight of one of the worst affected groups of citizens: migrant workers have been
making their way into social and mass media.
Thousands were left stranded without a source of livelihood, sustenance or safe spaces, and. they began their long, brutal marches out of the cities which they helped build, towards their hometowns and villages. Some even didn’t survive
All persons, regardless of their nationality, race, legal or other status, are entitled to fundamental human rights and basic labour protections, including migrant workers and their families. Migrants are also entitled to certain human rights and protections specifically linked to their vulnerable status.
Right to life as enshrined under Article 21 of our Constitution doesn’t discriminate between “have” and “have nots.”
While lockdown itself is a policy decision which is meant for the greater good, who will take responsibility for snatching the means of survival from these group of people?
Can they be just left to their own fate?
Are they not entitled, within the meaning of Article 21 of our Constitution, to a life with dignity?
The participants must be currently pursuing their Bachelor’s Degree in law i.e. 3 Year L.L.B. course or 5 Year B.A.LL.B. Course from any recognized university/school or pursuing LLM from any recognized University.
Any person having knowledge of the law can also participate.
