Police lathicharge villagers at Lalgarh

Posted by Admin on July 20, 2009

23naxalPolice today resorted to lathicharge on the villagers of Dharampur, near Lalgarh, when they protested outside the police camp there, demanding that the camp be shifted out of the school premises. About 500 villagers of Dharampur, including school students, today rallied up to the police camp in Dharampur, amed with traditional weapons, and demonstrated outside the camp. Many of them owe allegiance to the maoist backed PCPA (peoples committee against police atrocities).

The villagers demanded that the camp there, alonwith the other camps throughout the Lalgarh region be immediately shifted out of the numerous schools, as it was affecting hundreds of local students. They allegedly tried to storm into the school premises, housing the camp, when the police had to lob tear gas, and lathicharge. Many of those injured included students in uniforms.

For the last two weeks, villagers in Lalgarh have been protesting against the police camps inside schools, and have stepped up their agitation against it.

Many view this as a tactic to levy pressure on the joint forces and administration, as the villagers still suspect the police of their intentions.

Koraput: Tribals in Orissa sieze forest-land from companies

Posted by Admin on July 20, 2009

orissaKORAPUT – Several agitated tribals in Orissa’s Koraput district have resorted to forcible eviction methods of private companies from the forest land, in the disguise of restoration of land to tribals, the so-called ‘real’ owners.

The forest land, however, had been sold off by the non-tribals owners to private companies.

Protesting the ownership of private companies on the forest land, members of Chasi Mulia Sangh (CMS), a newly created and a ‘pro-tribal group’, has forcibly occupied 300 acres of the land in Bandhugaon Block of the district.

They also fell down several teak trees planted by the private company.

The step has once again displayed how this Maoist-backed group is gaining popularity and establishing its hold among tribals day-by-day. Read the rest of this entry »

Several Maoists, too, took part in the procession. Interestingly, hundreds of policemen and paramilitary personnel have been camping in the area for the past few weeks.

Those who were forced to quit CPM on Sunday included Suman Singh, the pradhan of Baita gram panchayat in Lalgarh, and Pritam Mullick, CPM leader and upa-pradahan of Manikpara panchayat in Jhargram block. They promised not to keep in touch with their comrades. Mullick’s name was there on the list of nine CPM leaders whom the Maoists had threatened to behead unless they quit the party.

Posted by Admin on July 20, 2009

lalgarh uprising adivasis womenJuly 19: The presence of 50 companies of security forces has apparently done little to scare away the Maoist guerrillas from Lalgarh.

The man who has been overseeing the outlawed outfit’s Lalgarh movement had emerged in front of the media with an AK-47 before the joint operation of central and state forces started on June 18.
