This thread is for all the #girls still in dilemma if they should go on protest or not. YOU MUST. We are celebrating Women Farmer’s day at all protest sites- Singhu, Tikri & other 6 on 18th Jan and your presence is must.
Allow me to give you first hand guide to this protest
I have been here since Dec and I came alone by train. Got down at Bahadurgarh Rly station, took auto for 20/- and reached Tikri Border. At the station itself you will find people in large numbers moving to protest site and that would be enough energy to survive for next few days
For shelter, you can go to Khalsa aid or others too, there will be a lot of choice and you don’t have to worry about absolutely anything. For food, I mean it’s all over the news. You might have to control yourself around so many langars with such delicacies🥺
Sanitation is still a challenge but manageable. More washrooms are being added everyday but you have to wait in mornings. Period products are available and medical camps are put up on 150-200m distance. Doctors are available in their vans and hospital has also been setup.🤗
Women are given preference everywhere in the protest! (Yay)
You don’t have to join long lines of Langar. The babas won’t let you wait, they will call you the moment they see you and give you food. The men in long lines won’t be able to do anything about it. You will feel happy😀
People might gawk at you coz that’s the Indian thing?! I guess we have become used to it by now. But you don’t have to worry about rape, molestation, I guarantee you. I have been out at 2am and I felt safe. There are volunteers guarding the streets all night, big thanks to them
There are libraries where you can sit and read. You can help in Langar. You can volunteer for anything, can ask for duties from stage. Speeches are made from stage, listen to the speakers to learn more about protest. Everybody is open for discussions. You can talk to anybody
and you will get to learn. There are people from all ideologies and beliefs and from all parts of India. I made friends from MP,Kerala,Tamil Nadu, UP, Bihar,Orissa,Maharashtra,Karnataka and Pb,Hry ofcourse.
If you still have questions, my DMs are open, please feel free to ask me. There should be nothing holding you back to not join this historical protest. I want to see more women coming out and registering their presence and contribution in what I believe is once in a life thing
Especially if you were looking for some special date to participate, mark 18th and reach here. Pack your bags and leave the comfort zone to witness history in making. Ok I am sounding like travel planner now but I hope you get the point.
I am a feminist so I tend to see everything from the very lens. Few years down the line when they sit to write history, I don’t want anyone to say that women had less participation or try to dismiss our contributions. Women work more than men anyday whether in farms or at home
Our less number in protest shouldn’t become an excuse for them to misquote this fact.
So ladies, please come out and reclaim your space. This is as much your protest as anybody else’s. You are welcomed here and you are waited for. See you on 18th! 🤗
