Dr. Binayak Sen will be in Delhi on the 25th July, 2009, for the first time since his release from Raipur prison. This is an important occasion for us to meet him and him meeting us. The campaign for the release of Dr. Binayak Sen was one issue which brought together on one platform several thousands of activists and ordinary people from all over the Country and from different parts of the World. There was only once voice that Dr. Sen be released and that his arrest was illegal.
We all know that had it not been for the Marches, Protests, Sit in programmes, Satyagrahs, Editorial positions by newspapers, broadcasting the issue in the electronic media, appeals by noble laureates etc, Binayak’s incarceration may have continued.
- Let us celebrate our SUCCESS about Dr. Sen’s release while he is in Delhi by coming in person to the meeting.
- Let us also discuss as to how to get the Central and State Government to talk PEACE with the Maoists. As well as stopping it from carrying out military action in September, in the name of Maoists which will essentially take away the lives of several innocent tribals in Chattishgarh and other States.
WE hope that you will join us on this occasion. We also hope that you will circulate this mail to all other friends in Delhi.

The PUCL appeals to the Government, Maoists and Salwa-Judum to put an end to killings and violence and create conducive environment for resolving the issues and concerns through political dialogue and peace talks.
The PUCL pays its homage to all police personnel killed in the attack by Maoists, especially remembering Shri V K Chaubey, Superintendent of Police, Rajnandgaon, who was known for his simple ways and strict discipline. PUCL expresses its condolences and solace to the bereaved families.
