The arrest of @zoo_bear is another attempt to intimidate and silence the media. This sort of intimidation should have no place in a democracy. Release @zoo_bear

The second half of June saw the rupee’s value touching record lows below 78 to the US dollar. But this absolute low should not take away from the long-term decline the has been experiencing, writes @Jayati1609 and @cpc01.

In solidarity with @zoo_bear, one of the silver linings to Indian journalism in the last few years, despite the immense personal risk to him. Dark day in India in a string of dark days.

Release Teesta, Sreekumar & others.
Threat to all those who dare question role of State/ govts for their role in communal violence.
This SC verdict questions human rights jurisprudence. In 2004 SC termed Gujarat govt leaders: 'modern day Neros'.

It's already so incredibly bad, everyone, and this at just 1.3°C of mean global heating. It's all caused by the fossil fuel industry, and it is irreversible. It's time to end fossil fuels

Deeply concerned by reports of Teesta Setalvad being detained by Anti Terrorism Sqaud of Gujarat police. Teesta is a strong voice against hatred and discrimination. Defending human rights is not a crime. I call for her release and an end to persecution by state.

Gujarat police followed up the SC judgement on Gujarat killings by arresting the petitioner, Teesta Setalvad. The arrest follows after Amit Sha`s interview to ANI on the events in 2002. Withdraw the false charges, release Teesta.

There is a real risk that multiple famines will be declared this year - and 2023 could be even worse.

We need strong political and private sector leadership for a coordinated multilateral response.

We cannot accept mass hunger and starvation in the 21st century.
