Chants of “Black Lives Matter” and “George Floyd” rang out across Sacramento yesterday as hundreds of people peacefully protested in solidarity with the protesters in Minneapolis. Our Photography Editor, Maayez Imam, captured these photos showing how the protest unfolded.
Students, staff, and faculty at UC Davis come together to stand in solidarity with the protestors in India as northeast Delhi broke out into serious violence last week. With countless reports of Muslim homes burning, religious sites and common folk being brutally attacked and losing over 40+ lives, clashes between Hindus-Muslims and the police only continued through the week. With the right-wing Hindu nationalist government’s still refusing to reconsider the two new laws – Citizenship Amendment Act and National Registry of Citizens – that threaten citizenship for Muslims in India, the situation forward seems bleak. Folks came forth to fight fascism on the UC Davis campus, chanting for “Azaadi” (freedom) and the revolutionary cry “Inqalab Zinadaabad.”
