Organize a Tribunal in your StateMany people involved in the Tribunal process have suggested state-wide People's Tribunals on the World Bank and the ADB. If you are looking for contacts in your state or want information about holding a Tribunal, please contact us.
Financial supportYour support is necessary in getting this material published. Now that the Independent People's Tribunal has concluded, it is critical to collect all the information presented at the event and produce and distribute these findings. The audiences this information expects to support and impact are activists, research organizations, advocacy groups, academics, government officials, and policy makers both locally and internationally. The goals of disseminating this information are to influence policy, provide campaign and training material and inspire further action.
The documentation being planned is an edited, abridged, and printed report of the proceedings as well as full written and video documentation on the Web site. A shorter campaign booklet is also being prepared. The full printed report will be available in two editions, one in Hindi, and one in English. The smaller booklet will be published in as many languages as possible, initially in English, Hindi, and Tamil.
