The March for Equality (MFE) was a demonstration in support of an overall increase in political, social, and racial equality in the representation within the governmental offices of Salovia. It took place in what is now Chita, Baykalia on June 19, 1955, and approximately 15,000 people participated in the march. It is considered by many to be a prerequisite to events that would lead to the Salovian Civil War. The protests were a response to the June 10th Voting Rights Law, endorsed by then-Chancellor Gregori Kenolivi and other high-ranking officials in the Zedakhli, that further increased the voting power of those within Baykalia when compared to the rest of the country. The deaths of Peliksi Mdinaridze and Erik'a Prenishvili sparked further protests and riots throughout Salovia, with an estimated 200,000 people participating in nationwide protests.
