People’s SAARC

The South Asian People’s Assembly (People’s SAARC 2008) was held in Colombo on July 18, 19 and 20 at the Viharamahadevi Park. Sine 1993, there has been a regular and ongoing process of collaboration, discussion, strategizing and action across South Asia parallel to the meeting of heads of government of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC). The Women and Media Collective co-ordinated the People’s Parade, which drew a crowd of over 5000 participants on the final day of the assembly.
