A Thunderbolt from the sky..A thunderbolt that could make change.A Thunderbolt that will tear apart the black clouds of imperialism and communalism that had covered India.Yes change is inevitable..Change will Come..
outrage against the gang rape and brutal torture of a medical student
in Delhi has lead to a wave of protests which refuses to die down, even
after shameless Police repression as seen yesterday in Raisina Hills.
These protests unlike a coherent demand reflect the outpour of people
from various sections action the continuous rise in the crimes against
women throughout the Country. While the anger refuses to die
down, Delhi Police and the state government are shamelessly patting
their own backs over the fact that they have been able to arrest all the
culprits. The root of the matter on the other hand lies in the
systematic failure of the state and the law enforcing authorities in
providing safe public spaces for Women, who are everyday challenging the
patriarchal setup. Since last 3-4 days, the protests have intensified
not only in the capital, but throughout the country. The response of
SFI’s All India Protest day was also overwhelming across the country.
Today morning when the SFI, along with other leftist mass organizations
were having an agitation programme in Delhi, there were brutal
lathi-charge and tear gas firing, by the police on the rally, without
any sort of intimidation. Several protesters got severely injured,
including Comrade Sunand, member of the central executive committee of
SFI. SFI strongly condemns this atrocious measure taken by the
police and calls out for a Nationwide Black Day tomorrow (Monday,
24.12.12) in all campuses across the country an a week long agitation
campaign against violence on women.
