INVITATION FOR PRESS CONFERENCE
ON 4 JULY 2010 @ 11:30 AM @ NEWS & SERVICES SYNDICATE (NSS), HYDERGUDA ANNOUNCING "JAIL BHARO" CAMPAIGN
We, the All India Forgotten Women's Association (AIFWA) and All India Men's Welfare Association (AIMWA), are organizing this Press Conference to announce our support to Mr. Ravindra Gangurde, who has called for a "Jail Bharo Andolan" on 6 July 2010, as a sign of protest against arbitrary arrests of ordinary law-abiding citizens under IPC Sections 498A, 304B, Dowry Prohibition Act and related laws.
Given that today, arrest is inevitable for any man facing allegations of abuse or assault, it is imperative that our fathers, brothers and sons are prepared to go to jail along with us even if they committed no crime. "Jail Bharo" campaign is aimed at freeing ordinary law-abiding male citizens and their kin from the fear of jail and the concomitant feelings of humiliation and suffering so that they do not drive themselves into depression, ruin their health or end their own lives.
We request members of the print and electronic media to attend the Press Conference and provide wide coverage of our event.
