In 2019, Front Line Defenders traveled to Manipur, one of the states in the northeast region of India. The state is under the jurisdiction of the Armed Forces (Assam and Manipur) Special Powers Act of 1958, which effectively enables the Indian Army to maintain an ongoing presence in all areas of the state and to place all civilians under an effective rule by martial law. Under this Act, thousands of Manipuri civilians have been detained, jailed, tortured and extra judiciously killed by the armed forces and associated paramilitary forces.

Jitsi Meet ücretsiz ve şifreleme kullanan bir video konferans programıdır. Açık kaynak yazılımı olan Jitsi Meet, transit (kullanıcıdan sunucuya) şifreleme kullanır; yani iletişim sizin aygıtınızdan çıkmadan şifrelenir ve sunucuya ulaştığında şifresi çözülür; işlendikten sonra alıcıya gönderilmek üzere sunucudan çıkarken yeniden şifrelenir. Bu programın kendisi güvenilir bir uygulama olsa da Jitsi Meet’i aşağıdaki listede yer alanlar gibi güvenilir bir sunucu üzerinden kullanmak gerekiyor.

Human rights defenders at risk often find it difficult to talk about their mental and emotional wellbeing, even when they are concerned about it. Cultures of human rights practice tend to emphasise self-sacrifice, heroism, and martyrdom. These norms inhibit defenders from expressing their anxieties and seeking help.
