SC Verdict meetings and protests

13 Dec

COMMUNITY MEETING AND DISCUSSION
Max Mueller Bhavan, 6:30pm, Saturday, December 14th.

Gather to understand the judgment, talk, share, vent, come together.
This event is not open to the media — it’s a space for the community (of all genders and sexualities) to come together, discuss, think through what’s going on and where to go from here. Informal and unstructured, but we’ll have a few legal experts start by breaking down the judgment.

Spread the word! The event will be in English and Hindi with translation both ways.

Metro: Patel Chowk/Rajiv Chowk.

– Voices Against 377
GLOBAL DAY OF RAGE – NO GOING BACK!!
Jantar Mantar, 3 pm, Sunday, December 15th.

On December 11th, 2013, The Supreme Court of India reinstated the Criminality of Homosexuality in India. This Judgment has inspired anger across different sections of society around the world. While the legal battle continues, it is important that we make our voices heard. Loud and Clear.

This Judgment is not about any one community in any one country but about the hegemonic structures that oppress many across the world. It is a blow to the various other LGBTIQ communities across the world who might have …taken strength from the Indian story to challenge laws/social norms/prejudices that criminalise homosexuality in their own countries. It is time we begin to heal this lasting scar of colonialism. It is time we are given the space and freedom to pursue the work of fundamental social change which is made impossible with a law such as Sec. 377 of the Indian Penal Code choking us.

Gather your friends, lovers and anyone else who is enraged by this injustice. Make your voices heard.

Events are happening in many cities across the world! Organise one in yours or join one that is happening!
