    • Synopsis
    • Millions Can Walk is the story of a struggle for justice. It’s about a huge and silent mass of people who found a powerful way to claim for their rights. Our movie documents their non- violent action, compelling the government to heed them.
      How can we fight for our rights without using violence? With such an important contemporary question, the film spreads far beyond the borders of India, it reflects what is happening all over the world: in Brazil, in China, in Indonesia. All these countries want to catch up as much as they can with the rich countries of the world. They want to be attractive for investments and therefore put productivity first, with disregards to displacement of people because of factories, water dams or reservoir, or other land grabbing issues. The victims are of course the weaker one economically, the indigenous people or the untouchables. Capitalism in this fashion, without guardrails, without ethics or values, is growing as an uncontrolled monster whose appetite and pollution endangers society at large.
