बलीजन सांस्कृतिक आंदोलन - एक जानकारी (Balijan Cultural Movemet - An Introduction)

बलीजन सांस्कृतिक आंदोलन का घोषणा-पत्र जम्मू में कबीर जयंती समारोह के दौरान देखने को मिला. आपसे साझा कर रहा हूँ. हिंदी में इसकी विस्तृत जानकारी इस लिंक पर देखें--> बलीजन 

We are men and women from various suppressed and exploited castes, adivasi communities and religious communities who have come together in the Balijan Cultural Movement in order to develop the cultural foundations of the fight against Brahmanism, casteism, and Hindu fundamentalism which support the social, religious, political, and economic exploitation in India.
Following the lead of the great social revolutionary- Jotiba Phule, we take the name of “Balijan” to commemorate our roots in ancient traditions of the great and good ruler sacrificed to the creed of Brahmanism. Just as peasant women and men still say, "Let troubles and sorrows go and the realm of Bali come!" so we aim to build a society of freedom, equality and prosperity for all.
We also follow the traditions of Buddha, Jesus, Thiruvalluvar, Mohammad and the Sufi and Bhakti saints such as Kabir, Ravidas, Tukaram, Nanak and Basava. Jotiba and Savitribai Phule, Tarabai Shinde, Karl Marx, Birsa Munda, Iyothee Thass, Periyar, Ambedkar and many others are our heroes and icons.
We aim to promote and develop the self-respect, dignity, creativity, and truth seeking centered around the productive culture of the Balijan communities. Just as Brahmanism and caste are taking new forms in the globalised society in the modern imperialist era, so we also need to develop new alternative development models, new understanding, new creativity.
