Operation Green Hunt is an unprecedented military offensive on the people: Indian government has been at war with the people of Kashmir and the North East for decades. In the name of ‘national security and integrity’ and ‘national interest’, the government has been trying to crush the democratic aspirations of these oppressed nationalities with state terror. Through Operation Green Hunt, the government has brought its war on people to the heart of India. If the total number of government forces presently engaged in this Operation is taken in its entirety (including the paramilitary forces and the state police) it comes close to a quarter of a million (2.5 lakh).

This is more than double the US forces presently deployed in the occupation of Iraq -approximately 1.2 lakh- and bigger than the armies of Australia, Netherlands and South Africa put together. The war preparations alone speak volumes about the real intentions of the government. Air Force helicopters equipped with guns are used against the adivasis, airstrips are constructed in Raipur and Jagdalpur, tens of Jungle-Warfare schools are established to train the forces in special operations, new barracks and bases to station armed forces are prepared all over the war zone, and public buildings such as schools, panchayat houses and health centres are converted to camps for the Security Forces and torture chambers. In the name of fighting Naxalites/Maoists, new armed forces such as the CoBRA, Jharkhand Jaguar, C-60, etc are raised with public money to unleash terror on the adivasis. With a heinous intent, special emphasis is given by the government to recruit adivasi youths into government forces and state-sponsored vigilante gangs to instigate a bloody internecine war. To top it all, army commanders are deputed to oversee the war operations while the US is providing ‘advisors’, military intelligence, satellite surveillance and overall ‘tactical guidance’.

CDRO condemns disinformation campaign against civil rights team

Posted by Admin on April 20, 2010


Co-ordination of Democratic Rights Organizations (CDRO)

Press statement
18/04/10

The Coordination Of Democratic Rights Organizations (CDRO) strongly denies the allegation that the eight member human rights team that visited Purbi Singhbhum from 14th -16th April had Maoist links. The team was a CDRO team, an organization of which both PUCL Jharkhand and PUCL national are constituents together with other civil rights organization like APDR, CPDR, APCLC, PUDR, MASS, NPMHR, COHR etc. The fact-finding was organized by PUCL Jharkhand.

The team was inquiring into issues of displacement and the appropriation of national resources in Jharkhand by multinationals, the resistance by people’s movements to such attempts, the procedures employed by the state for the take-over of resources of which Operation Green Hunt is one, and the violation of people’s rights in the process.

The police’s detaining and questioning of the team and the subsequent claims allegedly made by the police in the media about the Maoist links of the fact-finding team are an attempt to destroy the credibility of civil rights organizations. They are aimed at derailing all civil society initiatives intended to discover the truth about the development and displacement especially in Operation Green Hunt areas like the mineral-rich state of Jharkhand . Such campaigns of disinformation against civil rights organization have become a regular feature of the state’s attempt to repress civil rights activity. CDRO strongly condemns this trend.

Police hunt for doctor who ‘helped’ Maoists

Posted by Admin on April 20, 2010



[We don’t know to the doctor
whether it is important to know who the patient is. We also don’t know
whether it is ethical to deny treatment to “Maoists” or anybody whom
doctor doesn’t like personally.

Or, only the “Maoists” don’t have the right to receive treatment? Then what should a doctor do? Before start treatment of a patient must the doctor make sure that the patient is not “Maoist”? Then what should a patient do? Before visiting a doctor must the patients visit local police station to receive a non-Maoist certificate?

By the way, Can any doctor deny treatment of anybody say, Sashi Tharoor the former external affair minister just because the doctor doubts his honesty?

We really don’t know. Red Barricade]

Asansol, April 19: Police swooped down on an Eastern Coalfields colony on the outskirts of Asansol town at two this morning in search of a doctor who had allegedly been treating Maoists, sometimes at home and sometimes deep in the forests of Bengal’s guerrilla turf.

Samir Biswas, 63, who had retired as superintendent of Eastern Coalfields’ main hospital in Asansol, was missing when 16 police jeeps surrounded the bungalow. Read the rest of this entry »
