Landright actvists and Ashoka fellow John in Danger

Dear Friends
Many of us know John Abraham, Ashoka Fellow from Ahmednagar, Maharashtra and
his on-going struggle for Adivasi rights. He and his colleagues are
several false cases in various courts insituted by the non-tribals in
collusion with local officials. Presently, he is undergoing a trial at
Kopargaon Sessions Court along with other Adivasis where the charge is of
attacking a police station with arms and attempt to murder. Ashoka has
already helped by finding him a lawyer. However, in my discussion with John
I realised that he is going through a severe financial crunch due to high
lawyer's fees, legal expenses and travel expenses for lawyer.
I am enclosing his address below with a sincere request that Ashoka fellows
should contact him and also help financially (or any other way you can).
This is about friendship and solidarity in real tough times. Please do
Best regards
Paromita Goswami
Ashoka Fellow, 2001
