The protest was held under the banner of ‘Pellet Victims Welfare Trust’ formulated to highlight the miseries inflicted upon them (pellet victims) by government forces.

They appealed people from across the Valley to come forward and help the pellet victims financially.

During the mass protests of 2016, government forces fired pellets on protestors which triggered massive crises. Hundreds of the young were shot in the face with the pellet guns rendering them partially or fully blind. The use of pellet guns still continues to suppress protests despite being criticised by human rights groups globally.
