Chennai’s Marina beach became the epicentre of protests against the ban on Jallikattu statewide in Tamil Nadu with thousands of youngsters raising their voice in the sands overnight to register their support to the traditional Jallikattu.

Jallikattu, it is a traditional event held in Tamil Nadu as a part of Pongal celebrations-a practise that has existed for over 2,000 years. Ancient Tamil Sangams described the practice as Yeru thazhuvuthal, literally "bull embracing".

As a consequence of the ban, imposed by the Honourable Supreme Court of india, there is a mass gathering of thousands of people and the epicentre of this historic moment is capital Chennai's famous Marina Beach.This is where thousands of people, mostly students and young professionals, have gathered since last night in absolutely peaceful protest.

The major highlight is there is no single organiser for the protest, most of them assembled there dont know each other.They had simply volunteered to join the protest for one common reason(Jallikattu).

In Tamilnadu, people across the state offered support. Water and food which are currently sourced through social media channels like Twitter, Whatsapp, and Facebook. Social media sites were also used extensively to relay information about jallikattu protests, we have set up a crowdsourcing campaign for jallikattu supporters who are in need of supplies like food, water and medical aides.

As we are rising, we have shown the nation how to protest in a democracy, which shows Unity,Diversity,Women Empowerment,Women Safety,Non Violence and finally Respect.

When you truly believe in what you are doing, it shows. And it pays. #jallikattu

Appeal:

Please donate generously for the cause of our Tamilian brothers and sisters who are tirelessly protesting in the hot sun only for us. The least we can do is to provide food and water to them to peacefully raise their voice. Lets unite and #SaveJallikattu.
