Aruna Roy

Aruna Roy

Aruna Roy resigned from the  Indian Administrative Service in 1975 to work with peasants and workers in rural Rajasthan. In 1990, she helped co-found the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan (MKSS) with Nikhil Dey and Shankar and campaigned for wages and other rights, eventually leading to the now celebrated Right to Information movement. The RTI Story: Power to the People, by Roy with the MKSS Collective, tells the story of how ordinary people can come together and prevail against great odds to make democracy more meaningful. Roy continues to be a part of many democratic struggles and campaigns.
