Protests are continuing in cities across India, Dec. 23, in response to the gang rape of a woman on a Delhi bus, Dec. 16. Police used water cannons to attack demonstrators in Delhi and scores of protesters have been injured.

A statement from the Socialist Unity Centre of India (Communist) condemned the attacks on protesters, “We are shocked to find instead that the Delhi police came down brutally with tear-gas, batons and water cannons upon the protestors coming from all sections of people from all walks of life, who were rightly demanding proper and immediate action from their peaceful massive rally in front of the President’s palace.”
