GUWAHATI, Dec 20 - Women of Guwahati and all corners of Assam would take to streets tomorrow registering their strong protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019, in an all-women protest organised by the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) at different locations of State and a ‘Women resist in black’ initiative undertaken by women writers, social activists and leading ladies from different walks of life in Guwahati.
Considering their large-scale participation in all the anti-CAB and anti-CAA agitations planned in different corners of the State, the All Assam Students’ Union has dedicated a special day for an all-women sit-in protest, which will be held at the Latasil field here and several other locations of Assam.
On the other hand, with an appeal to uphold human rights and support democratic values, a number of writers and social activists would gather at the Guwahati Club Rotary point at 11 am tomorrow to raise their concern through discussions, music and recitations.
Lauding the role of women in the three-day Satyagraha launched by the AASU on December 16, AASU chief advisor Dr Samujjal Bhattacharya has announced the all-women protest from the temporary detention centre for the protesters at the Dighalipukhuri Park.
“Women of Assam have been one of the main forces behind the success of the Assam movement. Their overwhelming participation in the anti-CAB protests is also exemplary. Let Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have a glimpse of the women power of Assam on December 21,” Bhattacharya had said on December 18, on the last day of AASU’s Satyagraha.
