The government of India, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have used the Covid-19 lockdown to launch a brutal crackdown on dissent and protest. Students and activists who participated in the country-wide protests against the discriminatory, illegal, and inhuman changes to the secular basis for citizenship in India, have been targeted using draconian legal provisions.
We are gathering at Potsdamer Platz at 1400 on Saturday, February 29 to march to the Indian Embassy.
On February 24, supporters of India’s unjust Citizenship Amendment Act attacked Muslims in Northeast Delhi, some times in full view of the Delhi Police. The attackers have been photographed using stones and hurling petrol bombs.
We must show up in large numbers to express deep solidarity with the victims and demand that the Indian government wake up and put an end to this unrelenting violence against Muslims, minorities, and protesters in India.
For weeks now, the people of India have protested against the cruel policies of the Narendra Modi government, including its inhumane and discriminatory citizenship law. There has been an explosion of fraternal love, resistance with art and poetry, and a re-discovery of constitutional values.
Join us on India’s Republic Day to learn, share food and drink, sing and dance in solidarity with the brave protestors.
It’s a soli-party!
Start time: 1900, January 26 (Sunday) Location: Bekech, Wedding Programme: Short talks, music and cultural performances
We marched once before from Brandenburger Tor to the Indian Embassy.
We are going to do it again.
UPDATE: Read our statement (in English and German) for our march on January 11.
Lasst uns gemeinsam um die Märtyrer der Proteste gegen den Citizenship Amendment Act, das National Population Register und das National Register for Citizens trauern.
Lasst uns zur indischen Botschaft demonstrieren, um gegen diese unmenschlichen Gesetze und die gewaltsamen Vergeltungsmaßnahmen gegen Muslime in Uttar Pradesh zu protestieren.
Lass uns die Aufmerksamkeit der internationalen Gemeinschaft auf folgendem steuern: die unmenschlichen Versuche der Indischen Regierung, Muslime Ihre Staatsbürgerschaftsrechte abzuschaffen, Indien in eine Hindu-Nation zu verwandeln, und gewaltsam Dissens zu unterdrücken.

Sammelpunkt: Pariser Platz / Brandenburger Tor
