In Remember the Details, Skye Arundhati Thomas reflects on the Indian protest movement that began in mid-2019 against xenophobic and casteist citizenship laws. This essay is a piece of political reportage told through the story of images and their afterlife. In the wake of the state erasure of these events, it asks what it means to remember, and how words and imagery inscribe reality into history.
