ARTICLE 17 : “The Untouchable Well”

The Dalit community is only allowed to drink water drawn from the one chosen "untouchable" well in the village. ARTICLE 17 A Campaign to End Untouchability ARTICLE 17 is a campaign launched by Video Volunteers on April 14th, 2012, to urge the National Commission for Schedule Castes, (the government body that is constitutionally appointed to direct and implement the safeguards against untouchability), to prosecute cases of untouchability. Community Correspondents across the country are documenting video testimonies of different forms of untouchability. The first 22 videos are featured here and more will be added as the campaign continues. We want to give viewers the responsibility, as witnesses, to end this age-old oppression once and for all. Sign the petition being sent to the National Commission on Scheduled Castes.
