The prominent slogans that were raised at this demonstration included, “Down with the brutal attack of police on peaceful protestors!”, “Stop the security of the ministers and ensure security of women!”, “Punish the guilty!”, “Hang the rapists!”, “Stop the criminalisation of politics!”, “Criminal parties will not ensure safety of women!”, “Delhi police – haye-haye!”, “Sheila Dixit – we want an answer!”, “Form mohalla defense committees to ensure security for the people!”, “Long live the unity of the people!”. The youth were full of determination to continue their protests in different parts of the city until their demands were met.
