Experiments with truth: 4/9/10

  • Also in India on Thursday, the province of Kerala nearly shut down in commemoration and protest of a massacre committed by Maoist rebels earlier this week.  The closures of schools, businesses, and the government were in protest of the ruling party’s failure to prevent the violence.
  • As Indian minister Kamal Nath spoke inside a Manhattan building on Thursday, a group of NYC-based Sikhs gathered outside in protest.  They say the minister facilitated mobs that killed 3,000 people, mostly Sikhs, in 1984.
  • On Thursday morning, employees at a children’s clothing factory in Warwickshire, England staged a sit-in and demanded an explanation after discovering their month’s wages had not been posted.
