Today we stand with the Communities United Against Modi live from Ross Street Gurdwara. We will be live-sharing pictures and videos as we receive them. We stand with all the Mewa Singhs of British Columbia - Vancouver, Richmond, Abbotsford, Surrey, and all the rest - united against the Indian State and its fascism, united with all communities. While the massands of Ross Street Gurdwara are providing the red carpet, with the Sangat we will be providing the people's voice. Keep visiting and sharing with your friends. If you have any images from the event - feel free to send to firstname.lastname@example.org
