Digital Campaigns during Lockdown
Covid-19 pandemic have halted our regular public programs, meetings and street campaigns. But it is crucial to raise our voices against the injustice of any form. This is what strengthens our democracy. This is what is needed to keep the journey going. In such times, the importance of Online media platforms should be understood. These online platforms are important means to express ourselves, to take a stand for our Constitutional values of Freedom, Equality, Fraternity and Justice during such unprecedented times of lockdown.
Since the beginning of the lockdown, Lokayat has been organizing online Talks, Digital Campaigns, Twitter Storms and Cultural programs on Social Media Platforms. Participate in these activities and be a part of the people’s movement. Register yourself now!
We have been following up with government officials with our demands related to Rationing System (PDS), Healthcare, Electricity etc. But, even in lock down, it is very important that people’s pressure is not unseen.
So, we are making use of social media platforms at it’s best to make people participate and express to strengthen democracy.
Here are some of hashtag campaigns, in which people participated to raise their voice with great enthusiasm!
We have been organizing twitter storms and participating in other storms time to time. We have been pushing issues of immediate concerns to twitter trends. Consistent Twitter Storms are helping us in networking with like minded people across the country.
