Dharna for the release of Binayak Sen

Dharna for the release of Binayak Sen

PUDR is holding a dharna at Jantar Mantar on March 16th, 2009, from 5-7 pm in solidarity with our friends who are courting arrest to press our demand for release of Dr Binayak Sen. Twenty one months have passed since he was arrested and charged in a false case. His health has deteriorated but the court has remained indifferent. We wish to utilise this opportunity to reiterate our demand for repeal of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act which proscribes political ideologies and criminalises normal, routine and legitimate activities.

While PUDR has taken this initiative we request all groups to come join this dharna. If they wish to bring their banner they should do so. We will distribute the parcha prepared by the Release Binayak Sen Committee, sing songs and if there is anyone/group which wants to say something, we welcome that.
