ANTI-AFSPA MARCH FROM MANDI HOUSE METRO STATION TO JANTAR MANTAR ON 30 MAR AT 1
Yet, AFSPA has been existing for 60 years now. In these 60 years, there have been countless numbers of protests and demonstrations against this inhuman act. It has been 14 years now that Irom Sharmila, a Manipuri activist, has been on a hunger-strike against AFSPA but while her heroic struggle is challenging the conscience of people across the world, her own Government remains unmoved. Almost all major parties in the country have been silent about the everyday horror in these states.
But this silence needs to be broken. In the wake of the upcoming 16th Lok Sabha elections, we intend to create a political pressure for the repeal of AFSPA. We demand the political parties to take up the issue of repealing AFSPA. In this regard, we have taken several steps. We have appealed to academicians and columnists to write about this issue in newspapers and news portals. An open letter issued by Save Sharmila Solidarity Campaign and endorsed by many human rights’ activists and organizations across the country was written to political parties including AAP, Samajwadi Party, Trinamool Congress, left parties, regional parties of Jammu & Kashmir and North-east.
