Remove sedition and other motivated charges from JNU students!
Revoke Suspension of JNU Students Unconditionally!
Scrap Sedition from IPC!
Enact Rohith Act to end caste discrimination in universities and higher educational institutions!
Smriti Irani must resign for misusing power and peddling lies!

In this hour of unprecedented attack on JNU, your solidarity has been a reassuring source of great strength. We appeal to you to stand with us again tomorrow, as we march from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar.
The struggle as of now, continues on two fronts:
First is the political battle to get the sedition and other charges removed from all JNU students. Since the application of the sedition law is politically determined, we need to build political pressure to get the criminal charges from all JNU students removed. On the 2nd of March, 2016, therefore, the JNU Students’ Union has called for a March to Parliament and International Protest Day with three main demands:
– Removal of sedition and other charges from all JNU students and release the arrested students.
– Scrapping of sedition law (Sec 124A IPC).
– Enactment of a “Rohith Act” for ending caste-based discrimination in educational institutions.
The second challenge, as of now, is to ensure that the academic suspension of eight activists is unconditionally revoked. After the 9th February incident, the University administration constituted an enquiry committee but the committee seems keener in vendetta rather than enquiry. This enquiry committee suspended 8 students, and declared them prima facie guilty without hearing a word in their defence.
The JNU Students’ Union and the JNU Teachers’ Association have both expressed their grave concerns regarding the composition, scope and intentions of the committee. We have serious concerns about the intentions of the committee. When the students are already debarred, an enquiry works as a tool of blackmail against valiant student activists, seeking to tame them into submission or compromise. The stakes for the students under enquiry are very high, as most of them belong to marginalised backgrounds- there are two Dalit students, two students from backward communities, minority students as well as women. Academic suspension for these students creates a distress of unimaginable levels for them and makes them vulnerable. Expecting these students to cooperate with the enquiry committee is unreasonable.
Thanking you once again for the solidarity, we reiterate the appeal to observe International Protest Day on the 2nd of March, 2016 in support of JNU by marching from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar in Delhi. Let’s trend the hashtag #StandWithJNU worldwide on 2nd of March, 2016.

Shehla (Vice-President, JNUSU)
