Greenpeace India is experiencing escalating attacks from India’s Ministry of Home Affairs
(MHA) that could result in the closing of our operations in India. If Greenpeace India closes, it will be the first time in this organisation’s forty-four year history that such a thing has happened. If the government succeeds in strangling Greenpeace India, other Indian campaign groups and other Greenpeace offices could be next.
These attacks by the MHA are wide-ranging and have been occurring since June 2014. They are a worrying threat to democratic rights of free speech, public participation and the broader investment climate in India, which is vital for reducing poverty and protecting the environment.
Please ask the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to support free speech in India by signing this PETITION.
