We call upon all of you in Pune to join us tomorrow for this protest march.

Dear All, 
After informal discussions with Comrade Kerkar and Bhai Vaidya, on behalf of FTII VIDYARTHI ANDOLAN PUNE NAGARIK SAMARTHAN SAMITI, we have decided to organise a protest outside FTII Gate on Froday, August 21 at 5.30 pm. Do join us in large numbers, and do pass on this message to all your friends and other groups.

Some of us, including Lal Nishan Party (Leninist), Socialist Party (India) and Shramik Ekta Mahasangh and CPM, had formed this joint front some days ago. There was little time to contact other progressive groups of Pune. So even if we could not invite you to this urgently called meeting, we call upon all of you from various progressive organisations of Pune to join us for this protest meeting to be held at the Gate of FTII.

in solidarity
