Sikh Demonstration

Hundreds of Sikhs rallied outside the Indian consulate on Arguello Blvd in SF yesterday to remember Operation Blue Star, the June 6th 1984 Indian Government storming of the Golden Temple in Amritsar that left thousands of Innocent bystanders dead.

From the BBC:
"It was a justified act to flush out militants... But the costs were enormous. There has never been agreement on how many people were killed in and around the temple, and how many of the dead were innocent bystanders, rather than militants."
