Aruna Roy and Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan

Aruna Roy, who co-founded the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan in 1990, has been working with peasants and workers in rural Rajasthan since the mid 1970s. The efforts of the MKSS for better wages and other rights brought about the now-celebrated Right to Information movement. This book is an account of the evolution of this movement, chronicling the struggle, the theatres of protest, and the long spells on the street that went into drafting a peoples’ law.
