#MartyrsDay commemorates the most obvious example of the BJP's slogan, "Goli Maaro Saalon Ko." Hey Raam.
This is 11.30 PM and chilling out there but that doesn't stop people from coming out to protest.
Like all the others, this is a women-led 24 Hours Sit-In demonstration
I have been working with them for the last 5 days. Watch this space for more.
@swati Everytime I hear the lines
जब ज़ुल्म-ओ-सितम के कोह-ए-गरां
रुई की तरह उड़ जाएँगे
I get goosebumps. And hope is all it is.
I should add - as this is a spontaneous call, I am not sure if there is police permission for this. But I think we are past that point.
@swati this is government of two people working for themselves. Fuck them and everybody who is standing with them.
On 26 January, 2020, it will be seventy years since we the people of India gave to ourselves the Constitution that welded our nation into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC
Come join your fellow citizens in a campaign to celebrate the Constitution. Gather your friends and family around and read aloud the Preamble to the Constitution. Make a video of the reading and post it on your social media handles!
Update: Police permission has been denied for this protest at the last minute. So no protest, but some folks are still gathering at the Shivaji Statue at Shivaji Park at 6:00 p.m.
