Mumbai Terror Attacks

As most of you know, Meetup is a great orgnization for staying connected with communities all over the world.  As part of this network,  members are able to receive updates and news from local community organizers about many different things.  

The Mumbai Salsa Meetup Group sent an email out this weekend in response to the terror attacks that they experienced in that city.    Below is the email I received from Ruzbeh, the Main Organizer from the group about an online signup to show solidarity against such acts.  Check it out and show your support for those in Mumbai affected by the recent terror attacks:


Hi guys, 

I generally don’t like to use this forum for non-salsa related info; but the attacks on our beloved city [Mumbai] warrants that we do what can in these challenging times. 

I just signed an urgent message calling for unity following the attacks in Mumbai. Read the email below – Thanks


Dear friends across India and the world,

We’re all feeling the shock of the awful attacks in Mumbai. All our hearts go out to the victims and their families. 

The attacks were aimed at our people, our prosperity and our peace. But their top target was something else: our unity. If these attacks cause us to turn on each other in hatred and conflict, the terrorists will have won. They know that hatred and chaos feed on division. As radical extremists, their only hope of winning is by turning the rest of us against each other.

Let’s deny them that victory. We’re launching a message to extremists on all sides and all our political leaders, one that will soon be published in newspapers across India and Pakistan. The message is that these tactics have failed, that we’re more united than ever, united in our love and support to each other, determined to work together against terror and call on our leaders to do the same. If millions of people sign it, our message will be unmistakable, click below to sign it and please forward this email widely:

It’s time to speak out, let’s do it together.
