AASU to Protest Against CAA on December 12

The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) is set to organise a statewide protest on December 12 against the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.

Notably, December 12 is the first anniversary of enactment of the Act.

Earlier, the Rajya Sabha on December 11, 2019 had passed the the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, triggering a massive protest in Assam and the Northeast. Earlier, on December 9, 2019, the Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha’s winter session. The Bill received President’s assent on December 12.

“In the days to come, AASU and its allied 30 indigenous bodies would chalk out elaborate plans to exert pressure on the government to repeal the Act. However, on December 12 next, all the district AASU units would stage protests at public places with photographs of the martyrs of anti-CAA movement,” the AASU leaders stated.
