Indian Government Crackdown Could Shut Down Greenpeace India in One Month

NEW DELHI - Greenpeace India has one month left to fight for its survival following a wider government crackdown on civil society. The environmental NGO has been left with funds for staff salaries and office costs that will last for just about 30 days, its executive director has said.

Calling it ‘strangulation by stealth’ Greenpeace India challenged the Ministry of Home Affairs to stop using arbitrary penalties and confirm that they are trying to silence Greenpeace India because of its successful campaigns.
