“We appeal to all democrats to immediately intervene and put pressure on the Govermenent of Orissa to release Miss. Pratima, Mr. Pradeep and Mr. Amin Maharan, (if he is also arrested) without subjecting them to any kind of harassment. We demand the Government of Orissa to immediately release Miss Pratima Das, Mr. Pradeep and Mr. Amin Maharana and stop harassing Mr. David Pugh. Mr. David Pugh is again taken into custody at 2 pm now and being interrogated at Bhubaneswar hotel in Bhubaneswar by the police officials.”

We urge everyone reading this to circulate the following statement widely and urgently join in helping protect these people from the brutality of the police.

Important: emails in Dave’s behalf should not try to characterize him or his political work. He was traveling in India as a tourist,and our protest messages should not give some other impression. Adhere to the contents of the press release in all activities. We will post any updates we receive.
