Last week I was given the opportunity to attend a protest outside of the Indian Embassy located in Washington, D.C. that was against some recent events happening in India. I went for two reasons: 1) A humanitarian calling to do so, 2) Solidarity — my friend was there for me during BLM protests, so I wanted to be there for them for this.
I took a lot of photos at the protest in D.C. – and I’ll share 45 of them throughout this post in 3 separate sets.
And rather than walk you through my layman’s explanation, I thought it would be better to discuss what’s happening with my friend via chat and post that conversation (since they know more than I do on this subject).
The Situation in India
To catch you up a little bit quicker (in case you don’t know), here’s a brief rundown of what’s happening in India right now…
To be clear – this has gotten attention globally, and national news agencies have begun fervently covering the topic.
BBC has been covering the issue for a while now, and they regularly debate what’s been coined a “death warrant” for Indian farmers. And The New York Times has taken notice, too as these protests are spreading.
Today was historical as we shut down central London in protest of how Kisaans (Farmers) are being mistreated in India. May Maharaj guide us to victory. In unity is strength. ✊🏽 pic.twitter.com/lam1DIhaiN— 悟空 (@Gurinder94_) December 6, 2020
