Join us in celebrating International Women’s Day by expressing solidarity with Indigenous women in Canada and India. Indigenous and Adivasi/tribal women have been victims of systemic violence in these two nations for years. While the struggle for national inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women of Canada continues, an Adivasi female activist Soni Sori,a leading champion of human rights and of Adivasi women against the violence of the state in India was recently a victim of a brutal attack.
Radical Desi and South Asian Network for Secularism and Democracy(SANSAD) bring the voice of the South Asian community to support the struggle of marginalized women who are especially vulnerable to violence rooted in colonialism and racism. Join us in fighting sexism, racism, and the heritage of colonialism in Canada and India.
