Voices in Defence of the Wrongfully Imprisoned — I

On January 1, 2018, a group of people who had gathered at the site of the battle of Bhima Koregaon, were attacked by Hindutva forces. What followed, is a witch hunt — 11 activists have since been falsely implicated and put behind bars for their alleged, but unproved, role in inciting violence on that day. The civil society in India has come together once again, demanding the release of the wrongfully imprisoned. These videos, released by the Indian Civil Watch, is a part of one such effort.
