Delhi Police attack on Manipuri students; New Delhi, India, June 2016

Taken on 2016-06-07

Delhi Police attacked students from the Northeast Indian state of Manipur in a lathi-charge (with sticks) at the Manipur Bhavan in New Delhi. The students were protesting against Inner Line Permit (ILP) related bills in Manipur which restrict mobility in certain parts of the country. Manipur, like other states in Northeast India, has historically been subject to gross negligence and abuse at the hands of national authorities; an unresolved and ongoing problem. Violent repression of protesters is a commonplace occurrence.

Peace March in Homage to Student Rohith Vemula; India, Feb 2016

Peace March in Homage to Student Rohith Vemula; India, Feb 2016

Taken on 2016-02-17

Translated from french: "Peaceful march of JNU students in homage to Rohith Vemula, PhD student at the University of Hyderabad. He committed suicide on 17 January after suffering from discrimination due to his low caste and after being expelled from his university for carrying out political activities in favour of untouchables. Hundreds of policemen turned up to handle the sixty-or-so students. The police chased the students and 'captured' them, often violently, with a ratio of 3 to 5 policemen for a single person, sometimes dragging them to the ground... I do not have photos of this stage because I, too, was busy running away. All the people were then put in buses which had already been summoned for this action and then taken to the police station for a day of detention. Long live the liberty of expression! (Vive la liberté d'expression!)" -Anouch Carracilly (photographer) The central government of India, which is led by the BJP, has led a massive crackdown on students at Delhi's prestigious Jawarhal Nehru University (JNU) over the last few days. Policemen and even politicians have beaten up students and arrested them at random and with no legal justification for the same. The BJP was enraged at the criticism levelled against its policies by the students of the university during a peaceful discussion on their campus.

Pinjra Tod Demonstration; Delhi, New India, Oct 2015

Taken on 2015-10-15

Featured in this photo report are scenes of university students in Delhi protesting against sexist rules for women's hostels and the lack of proper anti-sexual harassment resources across Indian universities. The campaign is called Pinjra Tod (Break the Cage) in response to the fact that female students are routinely locked inside their hostels after dark whilst male students face no curfews. 'Images from an energetic and cathartic protest outside Telangana Bhawan (New Delhi) today by pinjratod in solidarity with the struggle of our women comrades from Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Hyderabad. Rule-books of hostels from universities across Delhi were torn and burnt, and a memorandum was submitted to the Resident Commissioner. We also blocked the main gate of Telangana Bhawan for the duration of the protest and when VIP officials wanted to get out in their fancy cars, we demanded that they show us a permission letter from their Local Guardians and enquired if their parents knew where they were going. We told them that it would be better for their own 'safety' to remain inside the gates.' - Pinjratod facebook page

In a country where having a boy is preferred over having a girl, a small village in India has caught global attention with a contradictory tradition.The village of Piplantri plants 111 trees for every girl that is born. Along with the trees parents are required to sign an affidavit that states their daughter will receive proper education and will not marry until she is of legal age. Piplantri is a beacon of hope for young women in India and their celebration of women shows the world just how valuable they are to society.
