Hum Sub (meaning All Together) was Indus Earth Trust's event as part of the peace festival Pursukoon Karachi which aimed to highlight the issue of Gun Culture in Karachi. It was held at the Arts Council on the 22nd - 24th November 2013.
IET's donkey cart rally went from Lyari to the Arts council with the IET beneficiaries from Mauripur and over 40 of their donkey carts!
The people of the fishing community of Mauripur have been greatly affected by the gun culture of this region, and many are scared to travel in to the city. The rally was their statement of peace. Donkeys are part of the livelihoods of this community and as such the animal is a symbol of prosperity.
This footage was taken by IET's CEO Shahid Khan, and we are in the process of editing all of the footage together to make a short documentary about the whole event.
