Not in Mawkhar


As residents of Mawkhar, we feel disgusted knowing that Rot Association of Meghalaya plans to organise a panel discussion on March 3 to observe International Sex Workers Rights Day in our locality. We jointly call on residents of Mawkhar to commit to a boycott of the gathering at the Khasi National Durbar Hall to ensure this historical building is not abused and humiliated.

For decades, residents of Mawkhar, members of frontline committees and numerous groups have worked tirelessly to maintain decency in the area. Therefore, we refuse to let RAM conduct the panel discussion at the premises of the KND Hall or within the boundaries of Mawkhar.

It now falls on the Deputy Commissioner’s office to take a stand and demonstrate that they have the will to push back against further abuse of our state. We, therefore, call on the Deputy Commissioner, Ms. Isawanda Laloo, to boycott the gathering – anything less will be seen as blatant disregard for our locality.
