Save Sharmila week from 8th to 14th by SSSC
Solidarity Fast with Irom Sharmila
- Date: 08 - 14 March 2013 -

Dear Friends ,

As you might be aware of the 'Save sharmila Solidarity Campaign(SSSC)' which is a nation-wide struggle against the neglection and suppression of Irom Sharmila Chanu, a Manipuri poet turned activist who has been on a relay hunger-protest for last12 years just to protest against the Armed Forces Special Powers Act(AFSPA) in Manipur. For this, SSSC has organized various events such as save Sharmila jan karwan from srinagar to imphal, solidarity fasts, candle vigils, documentary sessions, public awareness rallies, sitting in protests, delegation meets with NHRC & memorandum to Prime minister etc successfully in the past.

Now we have decided to organize a 'Save Sharmila week' from 8th march i.e International Women s Day to 14th march i.e Irom Sharmila birthday but on 14th we are not organizing any thing because Sharmila told us not to hold any kind of celebration on 14th march on her birthday as it will divert the issue. In her recent visit to Delhi, Irom sharmila again repeated her commitment about democracy, democratic values and non violence. she openly declared that her struggle is completely nonviolent. we feel that now it is the responsibility of all of us who believes in democratic values and non violence and thus we should come forward and raise our voice and show our solidarity with her supporting her hunger-protest of 12 long years which is nonetheless an important yet neglected non-violent and democratic struggle in the World's largest democracy.

During the week long programme our main object is to make people aware about her struggle for peace and democracy and to show our solidarity with her.
