Citizenship Amendment Act

Mumbaikars protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act being passed in India. Over 1.5 lakh people showed up to raise their voice and be heard.

The Citizenship Amendment Act has been a topic of discussion over Internet and is facing immense backlash from people all over India. Various cities saw people coming together to stand up against the Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC, raising their voices against what they stand for. Some cities also witnessed rallies in favour of the Act. Mumbai also came together to be a part of the rising wave of people who reject the Act. The peaceful protest took place on 19th December 2019 at the August Kranti Maidan in thousands. From students to politicians to working professionals to celebrities, Mumbaikars from various walks of life came together to be a part of something larger than one person, one political party and one religion.

As per multiple reports, the protest began around 4 pm with groups and individuals holding signs and chanting out slogans that opposed the Act and the violence against college students in earlier protests. According to a report in Vice, 1.5 Lakh Mumbaikars showed up at August Kranti maidan. People who were a part of the protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act took to social media to spread the word further.
