First Ever RTI FEST!!!

Satark Nagrik Sangathan is organizing the first ever RTI Youth Festival on the 23rd of November 2006 to create awareness about the RTI act and to create pressure on the Government to discourage it from introducing the amendments.
The Right to Information festival will include events and competitions characteristic of any youth festival -- debates, street theatre, creative writing competitions, and Jam sessions etc and will also have activities that create awareness and support for the Right to Information – RTI training and a panel discussion. The festival will culminate in a rock-show by the popular rock band- Indian Ocean.
The tentative venue for the festival is Hansraj College in Delhi University.

The festival will kick off with a 'Ghotala Rath Yatra' around North Campus- to create awareness about the RTI Act and to also encourage participation in the festival. The cultural activities will be held from 12.30 to 3 p.m. after which the panel discussion on the proposed amendments will happen. The rock show will start by 5.30 pm.

Satark Nagrik Sangathan is organizing the festival in collaboration with groups such as MKSS. This will be the first ever youth initiative in the RTI movement and we look forward to collaborate with other youth-run organizations/initiatives for the festival.
