8am activist calendar
 
810am Jacob and Zane speak with Indian Australian community activist Vikrant Kishore about the massive strikes sweeping India in response to Islamophobic citizenship bills introduced by the Hindu Nationalist government of Narendra Modi.

Kishore says that the proposed "Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA)" unfairly excludes Muslim refugees and migrants from applying for Indian citizenship and could render large number of people stateless and without rights. Student protests against the bill have been brutally repressed by police, leading to a polarisation between right wing nationalists supporting the Modi government on one side, and progressives who support a secular India on the other side mobilising around the strikes.
