As you may have heard, the victim of gang rape in India died due to the horrid injuries sustained. There have been mass actions in India, and in support of the victim and those taking action, people in Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia etc have organised their own protests or candlelight vigils at Indian embassies and consulate. Please start or join one of these actions if you can. Also, please hold your own vigil and send a pic to the Indian embassy/consulate near you; SWHK’s is below.
