Global Forum of Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent

Summary of Organization:

The Global Forum of Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent (GFOD) is the global coordination and engagement mechanism for the Stakeholder Group of Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent (SG CDWD). Both were founded in 2021 and formally recognize the core motto of ‘Leave No One Behind’ propounded by Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which ensures Planet, Peace and Prosperity for all, especially those who are marginalized through generations and suffered social prejudices for life of dignity and peace.

SG CDWD is comprised of communities discriminated on work and descent, who are some of the most excluded, segregated, and marginalized groups at the global and local level within their social, economic, political, and cultural systems. The consequences of this marginalization are the deprivation and systematic exclusion from education, health, access to water and sanitation, employment, voting rights, equal access to land and housing, access to religious institutions in the public sphere. The types of social structures have created systemic violence for centuries on DWD communities as heterogeneous as the Haratine in the Sahel; Forgeron in West Africa; Bantu in Sudan; Roma in Europe; Burakumin in Japan, and Dalits (formerly known as ‘untouchables’) in South Asia; Quilombo and Palenque South America.

The global coverage of DWD communities includes Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America regions with around 260 million people.

Asia Dalit Rights Forum

Summary of Organization:

With its genesis in the upsurge created by the World Conference against Racism at Durban in 2001, which challenged the conscience of humankind against racism and other forms of inequality, cross-country solidarity building among Dalits has had a decade and a half old history. On that significant occasion, the powerful voice of the strong contingent of civil society organizations reverberated around the globe and caught the imagination of progressive human rights activists and social intellectuals, media pundits and donor partners, UN agencies and international governments regarding the form of hidden apartheid suffered by Dalit communities in India.

This voice grew louder and stronger with Dalit communities in South Asian countries joining the chorus of protest against caste discrimination and violence suffered in their own respective countries, and asserting claims for their rights and entitlements. With the NCDHR-initiated International Dalit Solidarity Network (IDSN) advocating on the international scene the cause of communities discriminated on the basis of descent and work, the upsurge of Dalit communities for public visibility, global official recognition, and access to rights and entitlements gained force, strength and momentum.

It is in this background that Asian Dalit Rights Forum as a collective of Dalit rights protagonists, originated as a germinal idea at the World Social Forum 2004 in Mumbai, India. This led to events being organized for Dalit rights activists from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka at the India Social Forum, Delhi in November 2006. This collective idea of an Asia Dalit Rights Forum gained further clarity of perspective at the Karachi Social Forum in 2007. The rationale for this networking lay in the contiguity of the South Asian region countries, and the commonality of the systemic nature of discrimination and violence suffered by the peoples living in this region.

Indian Federation of App-based Transport Workers (IFAT)

Summary of Organization:

INDIAN FEDERATION OF APP-BASED TRANSPORT WORKERS (IFAT)

Beginning 2017, and after 2 years of groundwork, mentoring, organizing, mobilizing, and networking of grass root level drivers and riders Unions, associations, and self-help groups, the Indian Federation of App-based Transport Workers (IFAT) was established in December 2019. Since then, IFAT has been instrumental in organising, raising the profile, and influencing legislative policy changes with regard to gig and platform workers in India. The Federation represents the voice of nearly 25,000 app-based drivers & riders in over 10 cities of India. In 2020 Parliament passed the Social Security Code and IFAT could take some credit for its fruition, particularly the inclusion of gig and platform workers for social security benefits. During the two years of pandemic during which app-based drivers and riders faced economic ruination apart from serious health risks and even casualties, IFAT efforts included providing ration kits, emergency cash transfers, arranging medical support and hospitalisation for drivers, riders and their family members, and more importantly keeping the pressure on the government and the app-based companies by highlighting the plight of the distressed drivers/riders and seeking deferment and moratorium on their loans, demands for cash support, etc. Later in 2021 many IFAT organisations took the lead in registering thousands of app-based drivers and riders on the e-shram portal and issuing them e-shram cards. And finally, in the last quarter of 2021 public-spirited and IFAT supportive lawyers succeeded in filing a Pubic Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court of India seeking to secure social security benefits and economic reliefs to app-based workers.
