Dear Citizens of Free India,
Are you angry and disgusted with the attacks on women in Mangalore?
Are you upset that hooligans are trying to dictate what you can or cannot do?
Are you aghast that Indian culture is being misused to curb your freedom and choices?
Do you want to do something about this?
Do you want to send a message that WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!?
Then ACT NOW!
Come out of your college or office or wherever you are at 1:30 pm on Thursday, February 12, 2009
Join hands in protest
AGAINST MORAL POLICING
AGAINST ATTACKS ON WOMEN
FOR OUR FREEDOM
We will gather together without representing organizations or political parties, without disrupting traffic or normal life—we will gather as free citizens expressing our anguish about the attacks on our fundamental rights.
Freedom of Expression is enshrined in our Constitution.
Freedom to Assemble is enshrined in our Constitution.
Let’s make these freedoms come alive!
Before they disappear, right in front of our eyes.
Come, show Bengaluru and India what YOU can do!
Dr. Rajeev Gowda
(Professor, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore and political activist. I am issuing this call in my personal capacity).
