Watch: Mumbaikars Demonstrate In Support Of Vemula, JNU & Soni Sori

"Ae dil hai mushkil jeena yahan, zara roko, zara toko, ye hai bharat meri jaan."

On February 23, 2016, a demonstration gathered about 150 people at CST station in South Bombay with banners and posters in hand, and leaflets being passed around. With lawyers, students, social activists, teachers, filmmakers, journalists and photographers uniting, this silent protest was in solidarity with the all-India march taking place in Delhi, called 'chalo dilli'. Amongst those gathered were journalist and social activist Dilnaz Boga, convener of the Justice for Rohith Joint Action Committee and veteran activist Ghanashyam Sonar, students from St. Xavier's college, TISS, Mumbai University and others.
