Photo-Essay: JNU Protest Movement
By Azhar Amin
A photo-essay on the protest movement in JNU.
Against the oppression we walked hand in hand
Because it was for the freedom of expression, everyone stood up
Comrades in arms
Even in the Jails we sent them our love
Everyone stood for JNU
If oppression is their privilege, dissent is our right!
Raise the voice, for your lips are free to speak
Such were the people who provided us the strength to fight on
The whole world listened to us that day
They didn’t realize that it was JNU
They tried to supress few voices, they didn’t know thousands will speak up for them
Under that tricolor we stood united against fascism
We fight not only against your tyranny but for the beauty of our dreams
We fought back with everything but violence
We fought back with roses
We fought tooth and nail for our comrades
We won’t sit back when our home is under attack
When thousands marched for JNU
