Stop State Terror – Scrap the SEZs

Picket of the Indian High Commission
The Aldwych, London WC1

Friday 24 July 2009, 3.30pm – 5.30pm

In a test case establishing the fact that its model of neoliberal ‘development’ will be enforced through unrestrained violence the Indian central government is carrying out a massive paramilitary campaign in Lalgarh and surrounding areas in the adivasi (aboriginal) -dominated western region of West Bengal state. They are attempting to mercilessly crush an uprising against police atrocities and the seizure of land for the establishment of a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) by Jindal Steel Works, an Indian multinational.

Join the picket in support of the demands of the people of Lalgarh!

· Unconditional apology from the superintendent of police and the police personnelinvolved in the operations for the indiscriminate arrests, torture, rapes and illegal detentions.

· Compensation for those injured and for the families of those murdered in the attacks.

· All negotiations to be held in public and not behind closed doors.

Narmada, Nandigram, Lalgarh,the battles are the same: Medha Patkar

Posted by Admin on July 17, 2009

medhaNEW DELHI: There is no end to the struggle to save pieces of “our land and the people who live on them, own them and till them”, says social activist and the Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) pioneer Medha Patkar.”It is all the same…Narmada, Singur, Nandigram and Lalgarh. The police come in khaki uniform, commit excesses and people suffer. But when it happened in Bengal, I found it difficult to believe. This cannot be possible in a state ruled by the Left Front government, I thought,” Patkar, 54, who has helped set up the National Alliance of People’s Movement, told IANS.”There is no progress in India, only loot being perpetuated in the name of progress.

There is still so much happening in the Narmada Valley now,” said Patkar, who became a known face in the late 1980s while spearheading the NBA’s movement against big dams along the Narmada river.Based in Indore, Patkar was in the Lalgarh area of West Bengal recently to take stock of the situation. A tribal body supported by Maoists had made the area out of bounds for the state administration to protest police excesses, but the government’s presence has been re-established there with the help of security forces.”They call it a Naxal problem, but actually it’s the people who are struggling for survival,” said Patkar, an award-winning activist, clad in a green cotton sari.

GJM’s ‘police wing’ tightens grip on Darjeelng Hills

Posted by Admin on July 17, 2009

gorkhaland protest ye 20081126DARJEELING/KOLKATA: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha’s decision to put its ‘police wing’ —Gorkhaland Personnel —on ‘law and order duty’ during its ongoing indefinite strike has brought into sharp focus how Darjeeling has gradually slipped out of Kolkata’s grasp.

Since the bandh began on Monday, GLP volunteers in blue uniform with green, yellow and white stripes (their party colours) have been patrolling streets with West Bengal police virtually retreating from most of the Hills.

About 4,500 GLP volunteers have been deployed to maintain law and order, while 180 are manning National Highways 31A and 55. About 5,000 have been kept as reserves, while 7,000 volunteers will be recruited. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Admin on July 17, 2009

In Maoist Fortress of Orissa tribals seek Freedom from Forced IsolationReport by Deba Prasad Dash; Malkangiri: More than twenty one thousand tribal people residing in the cut-off region ,just on the other side of the Chitrakonda Reservoir have sought freedom from the forced isolation.After remaining cut-off from the rest of the world for near about five decades,now the people of 151 revenue villages seems no more to find themselves in an absurd situation.In fact,they are planning for a major revolution against the state machinery under the banner of the newly formed “Cut-off Area Poor Tribals Association”.

The protest made at Chitrakonda by more than 300 tribals from the cut-off region on Wednesday gives a clear indication that a Lalgarh like situation is going to arise there with the tribals supporting the Maoists to get their problems redressed. Read the rest of this entry »
