Hindu American Foundation Supporting the Malaysian Rights Rally in San Francisco

Malaysian rights rally in San Francisco
The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) is throwing its support behind a rally planned to take place in front of the United Nations Plaza in San Francisco, California on Saturday, March 22, 2008. The rally, organized by American Hindus with familial ties to Malaysia, is to support human rights in Malaysia. The organizers are calling for an end to the apartheid policies of the Malaysian government that favor ethnic Malay Muslims over other ethnic groups, and are demanding an immediate end to the destruction of Hindu Temples. The rally will also mark the 100th day of the unjust and unlawful detention of 5 leaders of the Hindu Rights Action Force (HINDRAF), who were jailed after they led a non-violent protest in the nation's capital in late November.
Venue: United Nations Plaza in San Francisco, CA (at the intersection of Market & Hyde)
Date/Time: Saturday, March 22, 2008 from 10a.m. – 1p.m.
