Protests in India in response to gang rape - Protest Organizer
In Delhi - protestors have taken to the streets shouting slogans and demanding the death penalty for rapists. The protests are in response to the brutal beating and gang rape last week of a 23 year old woman. She was traveling with her male companion on a bus in South Delhi. The woman - whose name has not been disclosed -- remains in critical condition in hospital in Singapore where she was transferred over night.
There is a large protest happening today and one of the lead organizers is Kavita Krishnan - the secretary of the All India Progressive Women's Association. We spoke to her earlier in Delhi as she was preparing for the protest today.
