Stop Greenhunt: Members of Bastar Solidarity Network, Delhi Chapter protest against witch-hunt of journalist Prabhat Singh, in support of Soni Sori, Bela Bhatia, Malini, Manish Kunjam, Kamal Shukla, JagLAG, to stop Operation Green Hunt and also to call upon the government to end the military operations and corporate loot in Bastar and other parts of Central and Eastern India at Chhattisgarh Bhawan in New Delhi, India, on Sept. 20, 2016. Operation Green Hunt is the name used by the Indian media to describe the "all-out offensive" by government of India's paramilitary forces and the state's forces against the Naxalites. The operation is believed to have begun in November 2009 along five states in the "Red Corridor". The Ministry of Home Affairs says that from 2007 to 2012, the Indian armed forces have killed 905 Naxalites and arrested 12,008. According to an analysis of the news reports by the South Asia Terrorism Portal, 2111 Maoists, 2669 civilians, and 1695 armed forces' personnel have lost their lives in the battle since 2005.
