INDIA: India Network for Basic Income releases video

The India Network for Basic Income (INBI) has released a video in order to promote unconditional basic income. The video, titled I also want to go to school, has been put out in advance of the 19th Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN) Congress, which is to be held in India and will be hosted by INBI.

The video shows a series of young children, the majority of whom are girls, looking directly at the camera. The words “I also want to go to school” are shown over the images, followed by the words “Basic income for me and my people”.

Although India does have non-fee-paying government-run schools, it can often be difficult for children of impoverished families to attend these, as they may be expected to help earn money to support themselves and their relatives, or to help with housework.
