Chandigarh: Overseas premier of the documentary titled “OUTJUSTICED 2” – depicting the struggle of victims of state oppression will be held today (Thursday, Dec. 08) atKings College, London (Waterloo Campus) at 6 pm (UK time). University students are going to organise a special screening of the documentary in association with Sikh Siyasat, Naujawani, KCL Sikh Soc and Nishaan.
The documentary OUTJUSTICED 2, is the second documentary in a series titled ‘OutJusticed – the untold stories’, and it makes special reference to the 2012 Gurdaspur police firing incident in which a Sikh student Bhai Jaspal Singh Gurdaspur was killed.
Parmjeet Singh, editor of Sikh Siyasat News and director of the documentary said: “Some people have been ‘outjusticed’ – pushed out of the ambit of the circle of justice – by the system and our documentary series titled “OutJusticed” is an attempt to document and tell the stories of those people”.
He further said that certain events, though happening at different times, can be better understood in their mutual context. The incident where Police opened fire in Gurdaspur did not emerge out of any vacuum. It has a political context just like the human rights abuses in Punjab have their root in the political questions of the Sikhs and the Punjab.
There will be more screenings of the documentary in the UK. For more details visit: http://naujawani.com/outjusticed-2
