The Sikh youth of the New York tri-state area would like to invite you to Lahir NY: Move the Movement 2009. The purpose of Lahir 2009 is to commemorate the Sikh Holocaust of 1984 and the violations of human rights that follow. We aim to inspire, educate, and awaken the masses through our community's talent-encouraging Sikh artists to express themselves through music, art, poetry and other non-conventional ways. We hope to move the movement through the solidarity of our youth and the support of our people.

Sikhs Urge UN To Bring Justice to 1984 Perpetrators
Leaders from a group of Sikh organizations today appealed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon to intervene immediately to bring justice to the victims of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Leaders from Khalsa Action Committee, Dal Khalsa, Punjab Human Rights Organisation, Shiromani Panthic Council, and Shiromani Akali Dal (Panch Pardani) met UN officials at its Information Centre here to submit a memorandum, saying unless it intervened, human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration would be seriously jeopardised.
Noting that official figures put the number of Sikhs killed in 1984 in Delhi alone at 2,733, the leaders said in the memorandum that the victims' families were still waiting for justice, 25 years after the carnage.
