Free Professor Saibaba: A Talk on Imprisoning Dissent in India

Saibaba, who is 90% disabled and a tireless advocate of indigenous and other oppressed peoples and castes has been sentenced to life in prison. Learn why and what it may represent for democratic voices in India and internationally.

Panelist David Pugh, a member of the Free Saibaba Coalition, travelled to India on a fact-finding mission to learn more about the People’s movements in India today. He and other members of the Coalition will present on Saibaba’s condition, case, and activism, as well as the relationship between Saibaba’s case and the larger situation in India, including the rural anti-displacement struggles and progressive political movements more broadly.
