‘March for Justice’ in Ranchi For Father Stan

All major non-BJP political parties and people’s movements held a massive ‘Nyay March’ (March for Justice) to the Raj Bhawan in Ranchi demanding the release of Father Stan Swamy, the 83-year-old human rights defender who has spent most of his life working for the rights of adivasis in Jharkhand. He inspired activists to research the status of under-trial adivasis arrested as "Maoists", and petitioned the court for their release.

Protesting the UAPA and demanding the release of Father Stan and the others in the Bhima Koregaon case, CPIML, CPI, CPIM, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, as well as organisations like Jharkhand Janadhikar Mahasabha, Jan Mukti Sangharsh Vahini, Manaveey Ekta, National Domestic Workers Movement, Right to Food Campaign, Visthapan Virodhi Jan Vikas Andolan, Singhbhum Adivasi Samaj, and Sajha Kadam participated in the rally.
