Release Human Rights Activists!
Dismiss the false lawsuits around Bhima Koregaon.
Their release is our freedom.
Since January 2018, several workers, lawyers, writers, poets, and human rights activists have been arrested on the basis of false accusations in connection with the Bhima Koregaon incident. Moreover, those Hindutva forces who were actually responsible for the violence are being protected. Draconian laws such as the U.A.P.A are being used to repress voices of dissent and struggles for justice.
We won’t stay silent. Nor will we be repressed any longer.
1. Release the lawyers, writers, poets, and human rights activists who have been arrested on the basis of false accusations in connection with the Bhima Koregaon incident.
2. Arrest Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote, the real perpetrators of the violence of the Bhima Koregaon incident.
3. Repeal draconian laws such as the U.A.P.A. and the C.S.P.S.A.
4. Protect and preserve the right to dissent.
