State Repression

Petition | Repeal the Armed ForcesSpecial Powers Act,1958 | Change.org

By keeping Armed Forces Special Powers Act in force, the Government of India and State Governments refuse to recognize that AFSPA has not achieved its purpose.  AFSPA is an anti-democratic act. Can a democratic country tolerate such an Act particularly since the security situation in most areas where the Act is in place has improved enormously? What better measure than repeal of this anti-human act?

Your voice is invaluable ! Please Join hands in repealing this draconian Act.

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
