Kashmiri solidarity activist Lina Ewald asked sardonically why the Gates Foundation was giving their award to Modi–rendering it more useless than used toilet paper–rather than to the hundreds of thousands of scavengers in India who manually clean the sewers, ‘a profession you can find nowhere else in this world”?

These are two articles that raise the question of why the Gates Foundation would even consider giving Modi such an award when those sanitation workers are dying of suffocation. Maybe they could explain what the Modi gang really did with that money if scavenging sewers is still an occupation in India?
