NESO to observe December 11 as Black Day to protest against CAA

Underlying that the aim is to send a message to the Government of India, the NESO wants to remind the people of yet another political injustice.

The North East Students’ Organisation (NESO) has, in a statement, declared that December 11 will always be remembered as a 'Black Day' for the entire region, considering that the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) was passed on this day in 2019, despite the relentless opposition of the indigenous peoples of the North East against the said Bill.

"We are against this Act and want to remind our people of yet another political injustice that the Government of India perpetrated against indigenous peoples of North East India," the NESO stated.

Earlier, the Government of India did not pay heed and it finally through the Rajya Sabha passed the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019.

To mark the occasion, the NESO has decided to display black flags and banners in all the important places of the states of North East India; the purpose of which is to send a message to the Government of India.
