29 Years of Impunity
Today marks the 29th anniversary of the pogroms of Sikhs in India. In November 1984, senior political and government leaders organized and implemented pogroms against Sikhs throughout the country, in response to the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. In the following decade in Punjab, security forces, protected by a system of impunity, disappeared and unlawfully killed thousands of Sikhs in counterinsurgency efforts that lasted until 1995.
The families of victims await justice. In our continued effort to document the mass state crimes committed by India, we will be releasing a short film at the end of November. Please view the trailer for The Last Killing, about a former policeman’s commitment to fight for justice.
We will also have a booth at the Yuba City Nagar Kirtan this weekend, November 2 – 3, 2013. Stop by and show your support.
