I saw this story on the Citizenside and thought you should see it

People march for 'Forgotten Citizens 84' exibition in Amritsar

News Amritsar, India - 22 October 2012

The 'Forgotten Citizens 84' is a photo exhibition depicting the 84 Sikh genocide entering its second day of struggle on October 22, 2012 in Amritsar, India. The petition reminds people about the Sikh genocide in 1984 and the responsibilities of the government to bring justice to the perpetrators of this violence.

For more information, visit the New York Times.

Our contributor writes:

The fervor among the people is immeasurable. Every sensible citizen is signing the petition to re-open the false fully closed cases of the '84 riot victims.

Today the high priest of Akal Takht (highest seat and court of Sikhs) Jathedar Gurbachan Singh visited the exhibition and said that the peaceful survival of the humanity is possible only if the culprits of such mass massacres are apprehended and punished to create an example for others so that no one dares to sabotage the rights of other citizens.


The activists of the exhibition were quite successful in getting signs of hundreds of citizens, which will be a democratic instrument to reopen the unresolved cases.
