Yaariyan Online safety and self defense workshop on Sunday 28th April 2013.
Have you heard of friends who have fallen prey to extortion, blackmail, molestation, physical assault or gay bashing? Or worst have you been a victim yourself? There is no shame in admitting, as surprisingly a substantial number of us have been a victim at one point or the other and have preferred to stay mum. And if you felt you never “cruised” in public and hence you were safe, then think again…cyberspace is lurking with these same dangerous elements as well!
There have been recent incident of entrapment where cops themselves were involved, and in another case someone was physically attacked and lost a finger. What are you rights when you land in such a messy situation? Who do you contact? How do you protect yourself. Yaariyan helps you find some of the answer with help of people who deal and help such people on an everyday basis.
Come join us for a very important and practical session which while pray you may never need it, you gotta be prepared for! Get your friends, and lets get this discussion going NOW!
