NATIONWIDE APPEAL TO OPPOSE GOVRNMENT’S REFUSAL OF ONE DAY
SOLIDARITY FAST FOR IROM SHARMILA
Delhi Police had denied the permission for our proposed program of ‘’One day fast for Irom Sharmila’’, which was scheduled on 10th December, three days before the fast, on the flimsy grounds of “law and order”. We tried our best with several follow ups with different levels of police office from local police station to commissioner of police but they refused to co-operate with us. The Government has yet again showed its hard and inhumane approach in dealing with the human rights activists. This also seems to be a clear message that the Government is now in fear of the growing public support for Irom Sharmila. This fast was scheduled as a culminating program of Nationwide Signature Campaign which had started from 02nd October in India and across the globe.
We believe that they can only deny the permission for a place for the fast, not for the fast. Fast doesn’t need any permission.
Henceforth, we appeal to all our friends to observe the one day fast wherever they are, be it their workplace, home, school anywhere. This one day fast will be observed by all supporters of this campaign in India and even across the globe. We also appeal to all our friends and well wishers to organize press conferences at their places to oppose the government’s way to deal with this issue.
We believe in non violence, peace and humanity and we are committed for all possible initiatives towards spreading the message of peace, love and non violence.
PROGRAM SCHEDULE 10 DEC 2011
We will move for Rajghat in morning at 09 AM for a peace prayer.
A press meet will be organized at 02 PM in Delhi, where all activists associated with this campaign will be present and some prominent women activists will address the press conference. The Press Conference will be held at the Press Conference Lawns, 1, Raisina Road, New Delhi, from 2 to 4 PM. All the supporters are invited for this.
