Watch: Justice for Rohith Vemula – Massive Rally in Mumbai

Nearly five thousand people gathered and marched from Byculla to CST to protest against the central governments handling of the protests after the suicide of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula. Dozens of Dalit organisations from Mumbai, and many others from the rest of Maharashtra and one came from Hyderabad, besides political organisations like Aam Aadmi Party and Communist Party of India represented by Prakash Reddy participated in the event. A friend of Rohith Vemula especially came for the rally from Hyderabad and spoke in the end.

It was led by Dr. B R Ambedkar’s son – Prakash Ambedkar. The protest went off peacefully and the Mumbai Police behaved well considering what their counterparts did to a similar protest there. Prakash Ambedkar promised more rallies in the future if justice is not served in the case of Rohith Vemula.
