Speaking at #AdiosModi protest of #HowdyModi about how Modi's totalitarian regime is crushing freedom of expression & thought throughout India — raiding homes of professors, writers, activists to interrogate them about the books they own or their pictures of Ambedkar on the wall.
While naked & homeless children survive only by begging in the streets of Delhi, the capital of India, that nation's autocratic ruler just squandered over $2.5 million for a 3-hour spectacle with no other purpose than to whitewash his blood-drenched history. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
We need to thank the American politicians who heroically refused to attend this event today. I want to name some names. That includes people like Congressman @BradSherman & @RepAlGreen. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen Congressman @PeteOlson wrote, “#HowdyModi is about unity, not division.” His remarks overlook that “Howdy Modi” is a partisan Indian political event which is driving a wedge between the incredibly diverse South Asian communities of Houston, of Texas, and of America. #AdiosModi
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen @PeteOlson 49 days since #Kashmiris have been able to speak with their loved ones back home in #Kashmir. Why is #Modi cutting off #Kashmiris around the world from the ability to access, to speak with their loved ones, to call back home just to say, "Yes, I'm alive. I love you"? #AdiosModi
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen @PeteOlson Over the past 5 years of Modi's totalitarian regime, we have seen a massive influx in mob lynchings. In lynchings of Dalits, of Muslims, in lynching in the name of "cow protection," and, more recently, lynchings in the name of the Hindu deity Ram. Stop mob lynchings. #AdiosModi
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen @PeteOlson "We're taking back our land because we are the indigenous people. We won't allow oppressive governments to rule over us. We're taking back our land. So when he says, 'whose streets,' these are our streets." Whose streets? Our streets. #HowdyModi #AdiosModi
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen @PeteOlson Chants of "#AdiosModi" at protest of #HowdyModi event intermixed with chants of "Modi, Modi, you can't hide, you committed genocide."

Adios, Modi. Adios, Modi. Adios, Modi.
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen @PeteOlson Chants of "RSS is KKK, RSS go away" at #AdiosModi protest of #HowdyModi event.
@BradSherman @RepAlGreen @PeteOlson Chants of "I believe that we'll be free" at #AdiosModi protest of #HowdyModi event: "When you believe something & believe something is coming to you, you work for it, you prepare for it, you make room for it & clear out space for it because you believe in your heart it's coming."
