India Decade Hunger Strike

Women from India’s northeastern Manipur state light candles during a demonstration to express solidarity with the decade-long hunger strike of 39-year-old woman Irom Sharmila, poster seen, to protest the government’s tough counterinsurgency laws in Gauhati, India, Monday, April 25, 2011. Sharmila has been refusing to eat to demand the repeal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, which gives the military powers such as the right to arrest suspected militants without a warrant and to shoot anyone suspected of being a rebel.
