Demanding Justice in Chattisgarh, immediate release of Kopa Kunjum, safe passage of padyatris in Dantewada!


We are watching with alarm the intimidation of individuals and peaceful civil society groups in Chhattisgarh. There appears to be a deepening pattern of violations of basic human rights. The state has first bulldozed the premises of Vanvasi Chetna Ashram (VCA) on May 17th, threatened its volunteers and on December 10th, the International Human Rights Day, arrested VCA volunteer Kopa Kunjum and his lawyer Alban Toppo of Human Rights Law Network without being presented the reasons for their arrest.
