How are the rights of black people in USA and Meira Paibi movements similar or different?
Social movements come into existence when a change is either forced on them or when they demand a change. The movement for rights of people in USA and Meira Pabi movements had one basic feature similar between them. They both resisted the change imposed on them.
The Civil right movement was for equal treatment of black Americans.
1. They were against the rules of segregation of black and white in school,buses and public places.
2. They were discriminated in appointment and voting right.
Martin Luther King said it is necessary to use peaceful means to achieve equality for all the people.
Meira Paibi was a movement to prevent public disorder due to alcohol abuse in the late 1970s. It soon became a movement for human rights with the massive deployment of Indian armed forces to counter the armed forces for Manipuri independence. The Indian armed forces had powers in the name of AFSPA. This led to the frequent military operation and human right violation.
