    In London around 10,000 Sikhs marched to Trafalgar Square. The march was a rememberance of the attacks on the Golden Temple in India. Also a plea was made regarding human rights violations and the atrocities that continue to occur in India.



    Again from a British perspective the Sikhs seemed to not be getting any support from any other communities. Also there was no support from political parties,trade unions and very little coverage in the mainstream media.

    I am glad that people still protest and let others know that we still remember. I know many people who say that we as Sikhs should let go but then I ask them how can those who lost all they had let go. It is easy for people to say but those who actually lost everything know how it felt and still feels. There should be protests like these done all over to send a message that we will never forget.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
