‘Naga Solidarity Walk’ to be held on July 28-29

‘Naga Solidarity Walk’ under the theme “one people, one destiny” is being organized by various organizations on July 28 and 29.
According to co-ordination committee, the Naga Solidarity Walk is being co-ordinated by Global Naga Forum, All Naga Students’ Association of Manipur, Angami Students’ Union, Arunachal Naga Students’ Federation, Eastern Naga Students’ Association, Rengma Naga People’s Council, Western Rengma Students’ Union Nagaland.
The walk will begin from Kohima on July 28 and cross Angami territory, Mao territory, Maram territory, Poumai territory, and will converge at Tahamzam (Senapati) on July 29.
The committee said that the walk will celebrate Naga unity and will be inclusive, non-partisan, and peaceful. The Walk will bridge the divisions and boundaries– physical and regional, ideological and political, tribal and gender, it said.
It will also be a joyous cultural enactment of Naga sisterhood and brotherhood, reinforcing the community bonds as a people across the states in India and Northwest Myanmar, as well as Nagas around the world.
The committee clarified that the walk was not an anti-India project but a pro-Naga movement and a non-violent one, adding that this was the “start of the 21st century Naga Solidarity Walk, the first leg of a people’s relay for unity and peace in the Naga homeland.”
The committee has therefore appealed to every individual, leader, organization and CSO throughout the Naga homeland to take part in the event. “We believe Nagas will step forward and help out in your respective capacities and with your resources, whether that is participating in the walk, giving financial assistance, working on the planning and logistics, providing goods, or serving the community,” it said.
