It is now 22 months since Dr Binayak Sen, the well-known public health and human rights activist was imprisoned by the Chhattisgarh government on false charges of abetting activities of an outlawed organization. International and national groups and individuals, including Twenty Two Nobel Laureates, have consistently demanded the release of Dr. Binayak Sen.

On Monday, March 16th, the Raipur Satyagraha, a mass civil disobedience movement, that follows the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.,was successfully launched to demand the immediate release of Dr. Binayak Sen. Every Monday, batches of 50-100 people will court arrest in front of the Raipur Jail, Chhatisgarh where Dr. Sen is incarcerated.

Groups in the United States are organizing a solidarity action in front the Indian Consulates at New York City, San Francisco Consulates and the DC Embassy on MARCH 27, Friday.
