This event is a tribute to Bismarque Dias, his spirit, and his unending love for Goa. Dias’ role as a priest took on an entirely new meaning in 2010, when he vehemently opposed the Church’s decision to sell its land in Vanxim Island. He went on to protest several similar projects, which threatened the biodiversity of his home, St. Estevam, a tiny island just off Old Goa. He entered the election fray in 2012 in an attempt to bring religion, spirituality, ethics and reality to the forefront. He was opposed to destructive development, the controversial Regional Plan Goa 2021, and mobilized his people to peaceful protests across the state. They believed that with love, compassion and kindness, they could make a difference.Tribute to The Kindness Manifesto
