[IAC#RG] UPR of India and MASUM

Dear Friend

As I already informed you that, MASUM is going to attend the third cycle of India's UPR on 4th of May 2017 as scheduled. Our representatives including me will reach Geneva beforehand. We have taken the third cycle of UPR with due sincerity and made our organizational submission, which was mainly focused on perpetual violence and subsequent impunity at Indo- Bangladesh bordering areas of West Bengal. We also facilitated a submission made by rights based organizations of eastern India. The submission drew the attention over various human rights concerns of this part of the country. Further we are part of the WGHR submission and another on female feticides. I am glad to inform you that, we are going to organize a side event before the third cycle of India's UPR on 3rd of May from 15:30 to 17:30 (Geneva Time) at UN Room No. XXVI of UN Headquarter in Geneva. The topics of the side event will be VIOLENCE AND IMPUNITY AT INDO- BANGLADESH BORDER and ATTACKS ON HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS.

I am requesting here for your all-out support during the side event. All friends from Geneva are requested to attend the event and friends in India are requested to follow the proceedings of the side event and actual review through facebook live and other electronic medium. We will arrange the viewing of side event at UN at MASUM office from 7pm – 9pm on 3rd May 2017.

The UPR of India will start at UN Human Rights Council at 6p,m. on 4th May 2017 will continue upto 8p.m. (approx). We will arrange the viewing of UPR discussion at UN from MASUM office.

In both the events you are most welcome at MASUM office.


In solidarity
