ABOUT THE EVENT 

Close to 200 million minorities in the worlds largest democracy are troubled by the actions of Indian government in the past few years and reached a flash point with latest act passed by the Indian legislature.

This citizenship act (CAA) comes amid recent waves of discriminatory actions by the Indian government. The issue is when CAA is combined with National Registry of Citizens (NRC) becomes a weapon targeting the minorities across the Nation.

Many actions taken so far by the government are tell tale signs of Fascism showing its ugly tentacles in India.

Join to engage in a constructive peaceful protest against this unconstitutional and discriminatory action

(CAA, NRC and NPR amendment) ,  police brutality and the suppression of free speech.
