Dear Secretary General,

Please lend your voice in support of free speech and the right to dissent in India.


India is the world’s largest democracy but the right of Indians to speak out is now under threat from a government crackdown.

Organisations that speak out for the environment and people’s rights are at risk of closure.

India could choose to lead the world in creating a future where everyone has what they need, whilst still taking care of our planet. But this is only possible if the government stops its attacks on freedom of speech and democracy.

Please ask the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to support free speech in India.
