If We Do Not Rise ...

Over 500 Women networks, LGBTQIA communities and human rights groups from 28 states are organizing an online day of resistance on September 5, 2020 to safeguard the Indian Constitution and its values. The Hum agar uthhe nahin toh... campaign is aimed at uniting voices against the targeted attacks on the Constitutional rights of the people of India. As part of the campaign thousands of videos are being collected from ordinary people, charter of demands would be submitted to authorities and there will be facebook /instagram/ youtube/twitter lives by individuals. The program is decentralized. We request you to join the campaign. Express your opinion through visual, performing arts and through your oratory.

Bol, ye thora waqt bahut hai,
Jism o zabaan ki maut se pahle;
Bol, ke sach zinda hai ab tak –
Bol, jo kuchh kahna hai kah-le!
Speak this little time is plenty
Before the death of body and tongue
Speak, for the truth is still alive
Speak, say whatever is to be said
