1984 Remembrance Marches in California

jak6.jpgThrough Sukhmani Sahibs, conferences, scholarships, film festivals, floats, and even ongoing camps, the Jakara Movement adds the next event to its on-going Remember 1984″ campaign.

This November they begin their Remembrance Marches.

25 years ago there was a government-sponsored pogrom in Delhi and throughout many parts of India that left tens of thousands dead. Orchestrated by the Indian Government, the perpetrators of these pogroms roam free today. Join us and connect in solemn remembrance with Sikhs and non-Sikhs alike as we commemorate the events of 1984 and call for justice and bear witness to the genocide. We will not be silenced.[link]

The Event will consist of a series of silent marches in the various regions, followed by video screenings, speeches, and a candlelight vigil.

Attend one at a city near you:

  • BAKERSFIELD Silver Creek Park Saturday, November 7th, 2009, 5-7pm
  • BAY AREA TBA
  • FRESNO Woodward Park Monday, November 16th, 2009, 6-8pm
