‘Every single government authority, whose job it is to safeguard human rights, has actively undermined them.’
10 Dec 2021
New Delhi: The Indian diaspora and 30 international human rights groups across over 15 countries on Friday – on the occasion of Human Rights Day – came together for a global campaign to condemn growing attacks on human rights in India. In a statement, they advocated for the repeal of laws that are criminalising the defence of human rights and jailing human rights defenders in the country.
Posters saying “Speaking up Is Not Anti-national, Silencing People Is!” were displayed in numerous cities around the world including Paris, Sydney, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, Cape Town, Tokyo, New York and Amsterdam.
