Navdanya team visited a 100 year old School in Champaran started by Mahatma Gandhi in 1917 and honoured the descendants of the Champaran Satyagraha.
As 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the indigo satyagraha in Champaran, the aim of the visit was also the announcement of a Satyagraha Yatra, from 13-23 April 2017, from Meerut, Uttar Pradesh to Orissa, Bhavan.
Navdanya will gather movements which will undertake a pilgrimage in the name of the force of truth. People’s Assemblies will be held at every stage of the journey, as a statement against any form of colonization, including the present form of it, perpetrated by agrichemical corporations and their attempt to colonize our seed, food and freedom everywhere.
