As we approach International Human Rights Day,
let's support David's reporting and
Making Contact's work!
David Barsamian, award-winning journalist, founder and director of Alternative Radio, was deported from India ("the world's largest democracy") on Sep 23. It appears that New Delhi wants to prevent him from reporting on the human rights situation in Kashmir, and the Indian government's pattern of muzzling dissent.
He has traveled to India for some 40 years and had 3 weeks of interviews scheduled there and in Kashmir.
David is back home in the "world's second largest Democracy" and has resumed his busy editing and radio production schedule. He's planning on a new book with Noam Chomsky, and is continuing his work with Tariq Ali and Arundhati Roy.
Let's gather together in this historic moment and
support David, Making Contact, and each other.
