2. Organising Seminars on Sedition and Judicial accountability in all cities between now and before the 30th of January. In Delhi it could be organised around the 15th of January, 2011. The outcome of this meeting can be the forming, in every city of a broad based committee demanding the repeal of the section on sedition.

Using this case as a peg Seminars and Meetings should focus on

1. Use of the sedition law in Binayak’s case
2. Other recent cases national and local
3. Examining historically the law on sedition and Gandhi a victim of this section with his views needs to be shared and discussed.
4. Planning campaign activities, Planning steps will include putting pressure on Political parties, MLAs, MPs as well ensuring that there is a media campaign on this locally.

A central committee to coordinate the demand for repealing the section on sedition will be constituted who will put together materials and draft memoranda to be sent to groups. We will try sending materials for this campaign.
