Sikhs in the Square

A rally to remember events of November 1984 on Sunday, 6th November at Trafalger Square. Be there! Thanks to solarider for bringing this to my attention (see his post here).

"The carnage was mind boggling. Half burnt bodies were still lying scattered. Some had been mutilated by gorging their eyes. Some had smoldering tyres around their necks. The houses had been completely destroyed and burnt."

"... thousands of documents that conclusively implicate police, local administrators, and even Parliament members in the deaths of tens of thousands of Sikhs in the 1980s and early 1990s.”

From the Harvard Human Rights Journal / Vol. 18, Spring 2005
