Since 2018, Indian authorities have arrested 16 activists under a draconian anti-terror law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) in connection with the Bhima Koregaon-Elgar Parishad case. 11 of them continue to languish in prison without trial.
The repression of activists must end.
INDIAN AUTHORITIES MUST RELEASE ALL IMPRISONED ACTIVISTS IN THE BK16 CASE!
Act now to urge the Union Home Minister of India, Amit Shah to:
► Drop all charges against the 16 activists and immediately release the 12 who remain in detention
► Pending their release, ensure that they are granted prompt, regular, and unrestricted access to medical care and other basic necessities
► Repeal or substantially amend the draconian Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
