Flower power. 10,000 supporters of Hindraf are expected to present red and yellow roses to the Prime Minister in conjunction with Valentine's Day next month. P. Waytha Moorty, the self-exiled Hindraf leader, said in a press release from London the red rose signifies "love" and Hindraf's "peaceful struggle" while yellow signifies its demand for justice for the 5 Hindraf leaders detained under ISA for their role in the 25 Nov 2007 rally.
Hindraf has asked its supporters to bring the roses to the Parliament House on 16 Feb 2008 at 11 am, and has asked the PM to come in person to accept the gesture.
