Candle Light Vigil 2012 Saturday 3rd November 2012 15:00 - 18:00 Victoria Square (Outside the Town Hall) Birmingham, UK 28 years ago this month the largest democracy in the world, predicted to soon become a world superpower partook in nationwide slaughter and terror of one if it’s most loyal minority groups - the Sikhs. Thousands of Sikhs were set alight, raped, terrorised and hunted down in a state organised massacre. Yet to this day only a handful of people have ever been tried for these crimes and the main orchestrators of the massacres not only walk free but have been rewarded for their brutal actions through political power and prestige. For the Sikhs lucky enough to survive the 1984 massacre, the memories and scars are as fresh as if the horrific events occurred yesterday. Many – living in gross poverty want little else than justice. Yet it is the one things that seems to elude them the most. The Sikh youth of the UK will congregate at Chamberlain Square in Birmingham City Centre on Saturday 3rd November from 3pm to 6pm. A collective effort will be made to highlight the injustice and suffering endured by the Sikhs in their so-called “homeland.” Let us show them that we have not forgotten their pain. Let us get together and show the world that these massacres cannot be forgotten. See you there and please do spread the word. Thank you Birmingham Candle Light Vigil Promo for Sikh Genocide.wmv 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
