Dear friends,

Please refer to our earlier correspondence with you regarding your participation in the campaign demanding the repeal of the sedition law. As you are aware, we are holding a meeting on the 16th of December, 2011 with the objective to broadbase our campaign.

In May, 2011 a Convention was organized by People’s Union of Civil Liberties (PUCL) several Human Rights activists and organizations from across the country heard accounts of the widespread and systematic misuse of the sedition law across India. The Convention resolved to launch a nation-wide signature campaign to collect at least a million signatures to present it to Parliament demanding the immediate repeal of Sedition Law, i.e., Sec. 124 (A) IPC.

It is imperative that we review the progress made so for and formulate future strategies in order to intensify the campaign and build pressure on the Government to repeal the law. For this purpose we would like to invite all of you on 11 November at Gandhi Peace Foundation from 11 AM to 4 PM. We may consider forming a coordination committee in the meeting with representatives of different organizations so that we can reach a cross section of society and also show our collective strength on this issue.

We hope you will urgently send us a line in acknowledgement so that we can plan the meeting accordingly.Kindly find attached with this letter “An appeal to the Parliament to repeal the Sedition Law”, for signature campaign.

Thanking you,

Sincerely yours,
(Pushkar Raj)
General Secretary
