The National Register of Citizens (NRC) of India requires people to produce documents of ancestry to be enlisted as Indian citizens. If they are not able to do so, they are to be considered illegal.
Given that such documents are rare for most people, many can lose citizenship.
The bill is coupled with the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Those who cannot prove their citizenship can yet obtain citizenship through this bill – except if they are Muslims.
On the one-year anniversary of this bill, we will gather in Harvard Square to protest and to demand:
Repeal Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) 2019
Withdraw National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR)
Release all anti-CAA activists and Political Prisoners, including Bhima Koregaon 16, who are falsely charged
Arrest all the perpetrators of the Delhi Pogrom
Please join us. Do bring along your poetry, speeches, slogans, and placards of resistance!
