Support Meet for Agnes Kharshiing: Gender Activism

November 10, 2018

A prominent people's rights and anti-corruption activist, Agnes Kharshiing, from Meghalaya, received severe head injuries in a brutal attack made on her by what is suspected to be coal mafia groups. She has been speaking strongly against coal smuggling in the Jaintia Hills for the past few years. Agnes is in a critical condition in the hospital.

As activists and concerned citizens we condemned this attack on Agnes Kharshiing.

We demand that the rampant corruption and attack on rights to our land, environment, and forests be stopped immediately. We want justice for Agnes and protection of our planet before profit. In Solidarity!!
