One member of the library staff, known fondly as Sebastian anna has stood by the movement and the students from the very beginning. He spoke about his own experiences of caste discrimination, the university, Appa Rao, and his faith in the students. Listen to his speech here.

From Javed Iqbal’s own caption, “Dontha warns that they dare not touch their Rohith Stupa. ‘Everytime there is a massacre or a killing of Dalits, just like in Tsunduru, a memorial comes up, a bust of Ambedkar. ‘They should not touch this memorial, I must remind them we come from a caste of gravediggers, and we will bury them if they try.'”
Music and multilingual protest songs have been performed at the veli wada, as have been other programmes and discussions.
