COMMEMORATING THE MARTYRS OF 1890 MARGAO MASSACRE

On the 21st of September 1890, 23 people were killed and many others injured as soldiers fired upon a group of people who had gathered near Camara Municipal de Salcete in Margao demanding their right to vote. To commemorate the martyrs, Goan Shutterbugs are organising a walk on 21st September at 5pm starting from Holy spirit Church, Margao.

Later at 6pm we hope to witness the equinox spectacle, where the setting sun lights up the church altars. Sarvesh Borkar who discovered this astronomical fact will be there to explain how it happens.

The walk is free and open to all.

A Gbugs event celebrating seven years of happy clicking!
