Condolence Meeting for PA Sebastian, a people’s lawyer

The representatives of Communist Ghadar Party were among many others from different organisations who paid their homage to the memory of Mr. PA Sebastian, a people’s lawyer, at a condolence meeting organized by the CPDR (Committee for Democratic Rights) in August in Mumbai. He passed away on 23rd July, 2015.Video clippings of Mr. Sebastian fighting to uphold the rights of people were shown at the meeting.

People remembered his fight for all the disempowered against state oppression. Many speakers said that his face has become the face for protest against injustice and for human rights. His genuine concern for people was evident when he argued in the courts. A victim of polio, PA Sebastian hated being reminded of his disability and would always refuse any help he was offered.

Justice Suresh was in the chair at the meeting. Concluding the meeting, he said that there was great need to organise again and again to protest against the violation of people’s rights. Justice Suresh admired the courage of Mr PA Sebastian and said he was a people’s lawyer and he missed him as he missed Justice Krishna Iyer who also died recently.
