#ARTICLE17: Untouchability in its Worst Form: ‘Tradition’ Demands Lowest Caste To Do Menial Jobs

Sanitation workers make a demand for basic safety equipment as they enter stagnant pools of waste. The caste system in India prescribes that all menial and filthy jobs be done by the ‘lowest’ caste.

This is unacceptable. Sign the Petition.
