Newsclick releases a film on Bezwada Wilson and the movement to end manual scavenging on May Day, 2018.
Why are so many Indian workers dying in sewers and septic tanks?
Why are they forced into the dehumanising work of manual scavenging?
Why has the government, the media and civil society not insisted on ending manual scavenging?
Is it because these workers, these women and men, are Dalit?
