ONE BILLION RISING REVOLUTION 2018
On the 13th of February 2018, AS PART of OBR campaign, 200 of us from different women’s and youth collectives marched in silent protest for 2.5 kms on the main Dharamshala road to demonstrate against the recent rape and murder of a 20 year old girl in Manjh, and against the growing culture of rape and violence.
The march started with 10 cars and 6 scooters driven by women and reached the Government college Matour (Kangra). Jagori team performed a play on child sexual abuse and did a flash mob demanding safety for women and girls.
On 12 February 2018, a similar car rally and performance of play was held in various locations reaching out to nearly 1000 students.
Today we demand justice for the rape and murder of a young woman and for her family. We stand for a world of peace and justice for all people.
