Save Democracy, Release Umar, Anirban and SAR Geelani, Enact Rohith Act – JNU Marches again in Delhi

For the fourth time since the early February, students, faculty and their friends marched in Delhi. Once again, there were thousands of people, walking from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar. This time, there was focused attention on the demand for the release of the detained JNU students – Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya, the DU Professor S.A.R Geelani, solidarity with JNU Prof. Nivedita Menon and the poet-scientist Gauhar Raza against their media trials, and a direct attack on the creeping fascism of the Modi regime. Here are some moments from this march.

The writer, Arundhati Roy, who joined the march celebrated the new motif of “Neel Asmaan pe Laal Tara” (Red Star on Blue Sky) which marked the intersection of the Ambedkarite and the Left Movements, she said, “We are looking at a new and revolutionary politics which will be started now. We are at the beginning of a battle between those who know how to hate and those who knows how to think”

Umar Khalid’s sister, Sara Fatima, who attended the March had this to say –
