The Land struggle in Chengara
, Pathnamtitta district, Kerala, by landless Dalits and Adivasis from all parts of Kerala, started on 4 August 2007. The movement is a fight to re-claim ownership of land that has been part of a long standing promise of the Government. At present nearly 5000 families, more than 20,000 people have entered the Harrison Malayalam Private Ltd Estate,
living in makeshift arrangements. In the ongoing struggle for land in Chengara there is growing tension and escalating violence against the peaceful and democratic protest by the people. There have been instances of various brutal attacks on the people of the area by the workers of trade unions affiliated to leading political parties and other hired henchmen of Harrison Malayalam Ltd.
This untitled film powerfully documents the voices of the Dalits and Adivasis who have entered the Harrison estate asserting that the right to land is a basic human right for marginalized communities.
