Come out for an open discussion on the situation in India, where for the past five years the government has been waging all-out war on its population; murdering, raping and detaining tens of thousands of activists, militants and civilians in an attempt to crush increasingly popular resistance movements. This brutal crackdown, named “Operation Greenhunt,” receives financial and military support from the U.S., Israel and increasingly Canada.
Presentations will focus on the intensification of this repression under the new Hindu-Fascist Modi government and on other long-standing wars in India, such as the occupation of Kashmir and attacks against Muslim and Dalit communities. Finally we will touch on what we can do here in Toronto to oppose the War on the people of India and stand in solidarity with the brave organizations and organizers fighting back!
