Come celebrate its legacy July 14th!G We invite all those who are curious about AstoriaGs deep tie with Indian independence.G We invite all those who are sickened by the current attacks on migrants- from travel bans to the jailing of children.Ghadar was formed by East Indian immigrants who faced strikingly similar conditions as migrants today. Instead of bowing in fear, they forged alliances with many in Astoria and beyond, and among the diverse East Indian commu-nity that lived and worked in Oregon and the West. Sikhs, Muslims, Hindus, workers, students and intellectuals joined together to demand their rights as global citizens, risking everything to do so."
