The women of Shaheen Bagh sat through the biting cold on New Year’s Eve too, and ushered 2020 in with hope.

A women-led sit-in protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh is now into its 19th day. These women of Shaheen Bagh sat through the biting cold on New Year’s Eve too, and ushered 2020 in with hope.

The Wire met a young woman at Shaheen Bagh on December 31 who was protesting against the new citizenship law. She said that they are here at this hour to save India’s democracy. If not for a discriminatory law such as this, we wouldn’t have realised that we still have ‘revolution’ in our blood, she said.
