Stop State Repression against ANTI-KKNPP Activists

      Mumbai (Bombay), India

Dear All,

The indefinite hunger strike has been going on for the past 5 days. Some 25 men have been on the fast since May 1 and 302 women and 10 more men have joined the strike on May 4, 2012. More and more women are eager to join the indefinite hunger strike but because of logistical issues such as space, bedding and toilet facilities, we are not in a position to accommodate them all.

Many of the men have become very tired and are suffering from fatigue and nausea. Scores of women are suffering from severe headache this morning and some seem to be dehydrated because of the scorching summer heat. They need immediate medical advice and help.

      Petition Organizer

      After the protestors from Tirunelveli march were released yday at around 530 p.m., Satish was picked up by the police and bundled into a TN-07- license plate bearing Tata Sumo. News flew that Q branch had picked up the youngster. Satish is a well known activist who is currently defending himself against POTA charges, but has no other outstanding cases against him. Last evening he was picked up and whisked off. Many enquiries later, we find that he has been retained on very flimsy charges arising from work he did last year. The charges include Section 143 -- Unlawful Assembly; Section 188 -- Disobedience of orders promulgated by public servant; and Section 34: commiting or planning act with other persons with common intent.Leaders of the protest, including Kolathur Mani, and Vaiko are currently protesting his arrest by refusing to leave the site of the protest. Arresting Satish is a harassment tactic. Kindly call up the Superintendent of Police Vijendra Bidari.
