Soni Sori has become symbolic of state and systemic violence. Her experience of a) emotional, mental, physical, sexual abuse while in the state custody; b) the shrewd and brutal procedures that were applied to fabricate her and keep her imprisoned; c) the brutality of a patriarchal state and society over a woman who dared to speak truth to the powers; d) the media and public alienation for victims of state violence, are all representative of a deeper malaise in our global society.
Program: Speakers include: Dr. Subir Sinha (SOAS), Ramesh Gopalakrishnan (Amnesty International), Dr. Alpa Shah (Goldsmith), Shahina KK (Journalist from India herself a victim of state violence); Readings from Soni Sori's letters from prison, campaign update and sign on petition.
When: 15th March 2013, 7-9pm
Where: Room B102, Brunei Gallery, Opposite SOAS College Buildings, Russel Square, London
