Convention to protest unjust arrest of social and human rights activists  

Press Release by Prateebaader Adheekaar Mancha (Forum for Right to Protest)

To the authorities, it is an offense whenever anyone raises voice against repression and torture on the poor, indigenous, fallen, mostly identified as Dalit, people and nationalities smaller in number. To the authorities, it is considered an offense whenever someone stands by these people. Social and human rights activists raising voices of protest against repression on these people are being sued under repressive laws. They are either arrested or threatened with arrests. Names of a few of such personalities are already in the media. They include Sudha Bharadwaj, Varavara Rao, Gautam Navlakha, Vernon Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira, Father Stan Swamy, Anand Teltumbde, Surendra Gadgil, Sudhir Dhawale, Rona Wilson, Mahesh Raut, Shoma Sen. They are from different parts of the country: Delhi, Haryana, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Goa, Ranchi, Nagpur, or in some other places. There are many such personalities, whose names are not found in media.
We appeal to all to join this convention for opposing such repressive measures.

Date: May 13, 2019, Monday
Time: 1630
Place: Jooba Kendra (Youth Center), Maulali, Kolkata

Women marched for change in several cities across India on Thursday. … As the women marched, several chanted slogans that called for an end to patriarchy, fascism and casteism. Many women also held posters that demanded the release of activists Shoma Sen and Sudha Bharadwaj, who were among nine activists arrested in June and August in connection with an investigation into a public meeting organised a day before caste-related violence erupted at Bhima Koregaon near Pune on January 1, 2018.

Release Human Rights Activists!

Dismiss the false lawsuits around Bhima Koregaon.
Their release is our freedom.

Since January 2018, several workers, lawyers, writers, poets, and human rights activists have been arrested on the basis of false accusations in connection with the Bhima Koregaon incident. Moreover, those Hindutva forces who were actually responsible for the violence are being protected. Draconian laws such as the U.A.P.A are being used to repress voices of dissent and struggles for justice.

We won’t stay silent. Nor will we be repressed any longer.

1. Release the lawyers, writers, poets, and human rights activists who have been arrested on the basis of false accusations in connection with the Bhima Koregaon incident.
2. Arrest Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote, the real perpetrators of the violence of the Bhima Koregaon incident.
3. Repeal draconian laws such as the U.A.P.A. and the C.S.P.S.A.
4. Protect and preserve the right to dissent.
