Hi everyone, lots of calls have been coming about whether the QAM event is on for this Sunday, 16th August, thanks to the swine flu. Well, we’re happy we can say – the Queer Azaadi March is ON!
It’s become increasingly clear over the last day or so that the swine flu hysteria has become far worse than the risk posed by the disease itself and we are not going to be party to that – not least when we have before us an issue as important as our fight to uphold the Delhi High Court decision.
We’re not going to be reckless. We will be providing face masks – both for the eyes (for identity) and for the mouth (for hygiene). Also, remember that in the open there’s not much to fear with respect to swine flu.
We are also happy to be able to say that the police have assured us of full support in doing the march. We will have to assemble outside August Kranti Maidan at 3 pm on Sunday and set off from there.
