Satyagraha in 2001 Another submergence has been imposed on the Narmada valley in the monsoon of 2001. The new phase of the struggle, the Satyagraha - non-violent resistance, will be launched against the dam and inhuman displacement and unjust development here and all over from July 5, 2001 at Jalsindhi (Madhya Pradesh) and Domkhedi (Maharashtra). In Nimad (Madhya Pradesh), Satyagraha will start at Chhoti Kasaravad (near Badwani), on July 9 near the residence of Baba Amte. Baba has taken a pledge to be one of the Satyagrahis, himself. At both places the people will be staying put in their homes and face the rising waters that may engulf land, houses.... everything alive. Satyagrahis will stake their lives and assert people's right to life and resources.
