Each and every protestor was forcefully arrested. Even children and women were not spared. Those who refused to court arrest were pinned down to earth, dragged like dead cattle and dumped into police vans for faraway police stations like Anjuna and Porvorim. In all, one hundred and three men, women, girls and children courted arrest. This was the day when Bismarque, the man had metamorphosed into Bismarque, the movement.
Musical Warriors is an open group comprising of Goan music performers and activists, who love Goa in all its natural beauty, social harmony and loving hospitality. The group has come together to promote the idea of preservation of our centuries-old tradition of peaceful living in harmony with nature, ecology and environment, which is, sadly, fast being destroyed. The group has conducted many street performances all over Goa creating awareness of various issues such as land grabbing by the state authorities in Mopa and Tuem for government projects and opposition towards Raheja housing project in Carmona and golf course in Tiracol.
