NATIONWIDE SHARMILA SATYAGRAH ON THE DAY OF NAMAK SATYAGRAH
6TH APRIL 2012
Save Sharmila Solidarity Campaign(SSSC) has been continuously working on the issue of Irom Sharmila by spreading awareness and generating support for Irom Sharmila on humanitarian and democratic grounds. From candle vigils at Rajghat & India Gate and in many other cities of India to Signature Campaigns in the 18 Indian States and in many countries, from street marches to documentary screenings at SAARC university, DU, IITs and in many other colleges, from the support show by artists at Gateway of India to human chain at Marine drive, from the historical jouney of Srinagar -Imphal & Ahemdabad – Srinagar to meetings with NHRC chairman, from Press conferences and protest to sending public appeal to Prime Minister, SSSC has been engaged through all possible means. SSSC has now gathered support of more than 90 civil society organizations.
To continue to strengthen the issue, the campaign has now decided to move ahead on its path for demand of justice through a nationwide call on 6th April. 6th April is the historical day when Mahatma Gandhi alongwith many followers of truth & non violence broke the Salt Law . SSSC has decided to choose the same day to protest against the Government on the same pattern of non violence for justice. We condemn the autocratic behavior of government and every possible effort to suppress the voice of people’s desire on the issue of Irom Sharmila. The Government has not shown any effort to resolve the issue of Irom Sharmila since last many years. Even after being a follower of non violence and truth, the Government has suppressed her voice.
Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation, had taught us to register our grievances and protest against autocratic laws and to raise our voices against all type of injustice and therefore we on the historical day of 6th April, will register our demand with the Government of India through sending a common memorandum addressed to Prime Minister of India.
Volunteers of SSSC will protest on district headquarters in many states of India. We will send common memorandum to Prime Minister through district authorities. In Delhi, we will go for a silent protest before Manipur bhawan and will submit the memorandum at PMO. Volunteers in state capitals will send the memorandum through Chief Minister Office.
