KARACHI: SCOPE, Oxfam and NPCP in collaboration with GROW campaign are organizing the first land rights tribunal in Sindh as well as mass mobilization march in two districts of Sindh this month.
The mass mobilization march on land is being held 20 March in Sanghar and on 22 March in Thatta, while the first land rights tribunal will be held on March 26 in Hyderabad.
The main objective of holding these activities is to highlight various burning issues of communities in Sindh related to their right to access to land and related human rights issues, particularly right to food.
Organizing a land rights tribunal is part of land right advocacy strategy. The tribunal is an unofficial public hearing procedure to highlight cases related to some public interest subject. Oxfam & ILC’s partner organizations have been organizing such tribunals in their respective countries. This is an effective awareness and advocacy tool to high light community issues related to their rights.
