This weekend, February 27-28, 2010 marks the eighth anniversary of the genocide in Gujarat.
The victim-survivors and Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP) and other legal support groups are commemorating the occasion with prayers at Gulberg Society, Meghaninagar, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 28.
CJP Secretary Teesta Setalvad says the victim-survivors’ struggle is at a crucial stage. In October 2009 they had approached the Supreme Court pointing out grave failures on the investigations by the Special Investigation Team. The petition is coming up for hearing on March 15.
In an Open Letter, the victim-survivors have appealed to the public to “lend your voice to our struggle”.
