More than 100 unidentified people, allegedly hired by an Aurovilian under the order of the Foundation Secretariat, enter the Youth Centre (YC) with two bulldozers. The YC team and concerned citizens try to make sense of the situation, to establish order, and request the official Work Order. Ignoring their requests, the paid crowd and machines forcefully enter and start destroying infrastructure, bulldozing trees and buildings. Aurovilians are manhandled. Rampant destruction continues despite all efforts to peacefully deal with the situation. Finally, residents from different communities of Auroville come together. Holding hands, they silently bear witness.
