On July 1, various organizations worldwide launched their activities and protests as part of the global day of action against Operation Kagaar in India. Under this operation, which began on January, at least 130 civilians and revolutionaries have been killed by the Indian state.

Operation Kagaar is a military operation that forms part of the larger counter-insurgency operation Operation SAMADHAN-Prahar in India that was launched in 2017. Under the pretext of fighting Maoists, it openly targets the Adivasi (indigenous) people of India who are struggling for their rights to land, forests, water and life.

The International League of Peoples Struggles Commission 10 and International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self Determination & Liberation expressed solidarity on the day of action. Groups from India, China, Russia, Turkey and European countries also participated. Philippine democratic organizations also expressed opposition to Operation Kagaar during the July 1 protest.

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines has declared a Solidarity Month (June 20-July 20) in the struggle of the Indian people, especially the Adivasi masses against Operation Kagaar.
