India Matters UK
February 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
lndia Matters UK (lMUK) is a coalition of academics, lawyers, students, activists, media personnel and individuals who are deeply concerned about the increasing and unacceptable levels of state repression and diminishing democratic spaces, intolerance and disregard for rule of law in lndia today.
lMUK aims to raise local and international awareness about state policies and practices of targeted violence and vigilantism against Adivasis (indigenous populations), Dalits (marginalised castes), Muslims, women, doctors, scientists, intellectuals, media personnel, nationalities (diverse ethnic, linguistic, religious and cultural groups).
Working in coalition with other individuals and groups, lMUK is committed to help bring about effective international responses to developments and issues of concern in India and to promote the goal of the Indian Constitution – “to secure all its citizens, justice: social, economic and political”.
lMUK will share and compile factual evidence and reports through public meetings and screenings; lobby politicians, experts and professionals and relevant people in the UK and also internationally; and offer support and solidarity to individuals and groups in India who are victims of state violence and abuse.
