Demonstration outside Indian consulate
Dozens protestors rallied outside the Indian consulate at Bay & Bloor Thursday, demanding better treatment of women in the country.
The demonstration comes on the heels of the death of a woman gang raped on a bus in New Delhi.
The violent attack on the 23-year-old symbolically named "Damini", has sparked daily protests in India & a heated discussion about treatment of women.
In Toronto, demonstrators hoisted posters, calling for men in India to better respect women & criticizing what they say is a legal system that ignores violence against women.
Indian activists marked a "black day" Thursday as 5 men formally charged in the case. The counts against them include murder & rape. If found guilty, the men could be sentenced to death.
