***The first part of this session will be livestreamed on the TWT Facebook page!***

This year, India has seen a mass movement against Modi’s Islamophobic citizenship laws. Women students protested and working class Muslim women occupied public spaces. Care and creativity shaped these occupations: from communal kitchens to poetry performances. Subsequently, women activists have been framed and jailed under draconian anti-terror laws. We will hear from activists in Delhi, discuss care, creativity and mutual aid as feminist resistance, apply these strategies to our own struggles, and plan solidarity with those resisting fascism in India.

Speakers:

Aysha Renna is a student activist at Jamia Millia Islamia University, Delhi.

Kawalpreet Kaur is the Delhi President of the All-India Students Association (AISA).

Neha Dixit is a multiple award-winning Indian feminist investigative journalist who writes on Politics, Social Justice and Gender in South Asia.

Brenna Bhandar is Reader in Law and Critical Theory at SOAS, University of London. She is editor (with Rafeef Ziadah) of Revolutionary Feminisms: Conversations on Collective Action and Radical Thought, 2020 (Verso)
