Join us on Friday, April 7th at 5:45 PM PT as we watch OutJusticed 2 and have a discussion collectively after!
OutJusticed 2 is the second documentary from a series titled "OutJusticed - the untold stories" focusing on the denial of justice to victims of human rights violations in Punjab. OutJusticed 2 concerns the Punjab Police firing incident of 2012 in which a Sikh student, Bhai Jaspal Singh was killed in Gurdaspur. Certain events, though happening at different times, can only be better understood in their mutual context. The incident of police firing in Gurdaspur did not emerge out of a vacuum; it has a political context just like the human rights abuses in Punjab have their root in political questions related to Sikhs and Panjab.
As regards human rights abuses in Panjab, there are three basic facts: firstly that these abuses are committed to crushing the political assertion of the Sikhs; secondly, the whole state system, including the judiciary, stand in complicity - especially through the policy of impunity; and thirdly, that this is not a thing of the past as it continues even to the present times. The case of Jaspal Singh Gurdaspur has emerged as a ‘witness’ to these facts.
All are welcome! Please help us spread the word about this wonderful "movies-that-matter" series!
