Huge participation of people in those rallies proves that the people of Lalgarh demand immediate withdrawal of combined armed forces from Lalgarh and stop the ongoing state repression.

Torch rally being taken out at Ichum Keirap against the BT road firing incident of July 2

ALMOST EVERY day in the past 140 days ie since January 1 this year till date, the people of Manipur have been witnessing some form of agitations, protests, bandhs or strikes, which has led to complete havoc in their lives.

Out of a total of 30 different forms of protests or agitations, 19 were bandhs or general strikes (state-wide and district-wide), which affected normal life for 20 days during the period from January 1 to April 30. These statistics do not include the currently ongoing agitations like the protest by the volunteers and supporters of Manipur Forward Youth Front (MAFYF) against the arrest of its president Sapamcha Kangleipal and his detention under National Security Act (NSA). Protests against the shooting and injuring of a student of Manipur University (MU) in Imphal, against the killing of a person at Ningthoukhong in Bishnupur district by troops of the 15 Jammu and Kashmir light infantry last weekend are also currently on.

Even today, police is busy dispersing protestors, who stormed the Chief Minister’s bungalow demanding justice in the shooting at the MU student, Ranjit, by a personnel of the Manipur Rifles during frisking and checking last weekend, while a local JAC formed in connection with the killing of one Shyamjai hailing from Moirang in Bishnupur district imposed bandh along the Imphal-Churachandpur section of national highway (NH) -150 (Tiddim road). Passenger service operators of all kinds, including auto-rickshaw service operators and inter state bus services, had on many occasions suspended their services, which disturbed the normal movement of people repeatedly. Apart from this, many state as well district level student bodies also launched various kinds of agitations like the closure of government offices and imposition of economic blockades on the highways.

The rally started from the Panchayat building premises located at village Kedmaraas, 7 kms away from Tongpal on Monday afternoon. After crossing seven kms long journey the rally converted into a public meeting at Tongpal.

In th meeting, taken place last evening at Tongpal the participants demanded unanimously to provide an x-gratia of rupees 10 lacs each to the family members of seven tribal villagers of village Soutnar, who have been killed by the police showing fake encounter and falsely naming them as naxals who were in fact the innocent tribals villagers. The second demand raised was to conduct judicial inquiry into the happenings on 20th June, there at Kokawada and lastly it was urged to the Government that the justice should be given to the villagers without prejudices and the culprits must be punished.

It is to recall that, on 20th June in a naxal land-mine blast eleven CRPF cops have lost their lives and nine had been injured. Later, police has claimed to kill seven naxals in encounter there immediately after the blast. From the vary date of the incident, the voices of various communities of the tribals along-with the leadership of Congress and CPI, was raised that these killed seven persons were innocent tribals having no nexus with the naxals. eTDS

Maoists’ backed tribals hold rally in Orissa

Posted by Admin on August 2, 2009

india-3July 5th: BANDHUGAON – Hundreds of tribals staged a rally in Bandhugaon in Orissa’s Koraput district on Saturday asserting their right on land.

The tribals, with the backing of the Maoists, accused the non-tribals of grabbing their land.

The Maoists have been reportedly instigating tribals to forcefully acquire the land belonging to non-tribals. They are against the acquisition of tribal land for establishing multinational companies.

“The Adivasis (tribals) in Koraput are fighting for their land rights, their rights of livelihood, their right to live in this district and this place. From Koraput and from other districts of Orissa Adivasis are being displaced. The areas are being given to multinationals,” said Vijay Kumar, a local resident. Read the rest of this entry »

Mahasweta Devi rallies for Lalgarh tribals

Posted by Admin on July 12, 2009

Author Mahasweta Devi led a rally in protest against the presence of security forces in Lalgarh on Saturday. Besides intellectuals like Sunando Sanyal and Pratul Mukhopadhyay, members of nearly 60 other organisations, including the Bhoomi Ucched Pratirodh Committee, were present in the rally.

“Why are the Central and state forces suddenly taking action against the people of Lalgarh, when for so many years nothing was done? For over three decades the government did nothing for the people, there has been absolutely no development in the area,” she said.

The author, who has lived and worked among the tribals for many years, added that they were still among the poorest people in the state.

“They don’t have BPL cards and do not get rice at the minimum rate. Now the government is trying to sell their land by giving them false promises of jobs and a secure future. The government is curbing all the protests in the area since they want to project a picture of calm to the Jindals,” she said.

Lawyer Sujato Bhadro, who was present at the rally, said after an organisation was declared illegal, there was always a review committee with a judge in whose presence people accused of being members of that organisation were supposed to be tried. “There is no such committee and the judge, the government has simply banned Maoists without forming this panel,” said Bhadro.
