Join the One Billion Rising Revolution 2017 in Bangalore!

We invite you to join us in Bangalore to stand in SOLIDARITY against the EXPLOITATION of WOMEN, farmers, the landless, Dalits, Internally Displaced Persons, the tribal population, differently-abled people, the LGBTQA+ community, women in unorganized sectors (garment workers, domestic workers, construction workers, etc), and many other marginalized groups; for an evening to listen to their testimonies, of music and dance from diverse groups across the city.

We will be celebrating resistance all-day across the city- in Nayandahalli, Bhoopasandra, Ulsoor and we culminate in Cubbon Park. We want to continue the spirit of resistance that citizens of this city have shown after the sexual assault that happened in our city during the New Year.
