Gajapati (Odisha) : Landless tribals and dalits gheraoed Collectorate

On 16th September 2014, thousands of landless peasants mainly tribals and dalits gheraoed the Gajapati collectorate at Paralakhemundi demanding their rights over land and forest. This programme was organized by CPI(ML)ND and Lok Sangram Manch jointly in which more than three thousand people from five blocks (Mandal) of the district participated to press their demands over land and forest right before the state Govt. In Gajapati district landless people particularly the tribals have taken the lead in capturing hundreds of acres of land over the past several years. These include the Govt land, forest land, temple land and even the illegal patta lands of landlords. Coming under the pressure of land movement the district administration (both the revenue and police) had convened meetings on land issue several times in the past and assured the CPI(ML) ND and LSM leaders to distribute the Govt. land among the landless people living in each village. Though the Odisha Govt. several times in the past has promised to distribute the Govt. land to every landless family but it never materialized. As per the Odisha land reform Act also there is provision to distribute the Govt. land in each village to the landless and homeless people.… Read More

Lift Siege of Gaza! – Prosecute Israeli rulers for War Crimes! – Organize Protests against Israeli Attack on Gaza on August 9

Since 8th July Israel has launched massive attack against Gaza. Since 18th July Israel forces moved into Gaza. Israeli attack has bettered its own records in inhuman, criminal acts against Palestinian people. Hospitals, schools and university have been targeted. Children and women have been killed in large number. More than 1600 civilians killed, over 7000 serious injured and more than half a million rendered without shelter. UN run schools and institutions are also not spared even as UN stands paralyzed into not taking any action to stop this mayhem due to US and other western rulers’ support to Israeli offensive. Even as it is established that civilians are being targeted, even UN institutions bombed, US rushed ammunition to Israel for this offensive. Support from western imperialist rulers is behind their impunity and utter disregard for human rights of Palestinians and world public opinion.

Israeli offensive is part of periodic attacks by Zionist Israeli rulers to warn Palestinians against any national aspirations or any resistance to Israeli offensive which unfolds daily in grabbing more and more Palestinian lands. They wish to keep Palestinians terrorized by unleashing destruction on a vast scale and driving out all thought of resistance. The present Israeli offensive is targeted against unity achieved by major Palestinian organizations.… Read More

Saharanpur: Oppose RSS-BJP Designs to Deepen Communal Division

Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)-New Democracy strongly condemns attempts of RSS and BJP to unleash virulent communal campaign utilizing the incidents in Saharanpur where three persons lost their lives and a large number of shops were burnt down. Violent campaign of RSS-BJP is part of their drive to deepen communal division in the country, particularly in the most populous state of Uttar Pradesh. They have not only launched a hate campaign against Muslims but are also trying to pit other minorities and oppressed castes against Muslims. Attacks by Sangh organizations in different parts of the country are part of this. It should be borne in mind how in village Akbarpur Chanderi, near Kanth in Moradabad district, RSS-BJP tried to foment communal trouble by getting a loudspeaker installed permanently in a temple there and getting it played at prayer time during Ramzan days.

CPI(ML)-New Democracy also condemns the incidents in Saharanpur over extension of a Gurudwara on a piece of land claimed by Muslims to be the site of a Mosque earlier. This matter has been under litigation and courts have had occasion to give their judgments which were in favour of the Gurudwara committee. Disputants should take legal recourse to settle such disputes rather than street action which will be utilized by RSS-BJP to foment communal trouble.… Read More

CC Statement on Gaza

Ground assault by Israel Army after heavy bombing for several days is one new chapter in Zionist crimes against Palestinians. Nearly 300 people, women and children, young and old have perished in these attacks. Brutality of the attacks is obvious from hospitals and schools being targeted. Unrelenting attacks on densely populated Gaza have made almost every Palestinian living in Gaza a target. A human catastrophe is being unleashed on Gaza by Zionist rulers. World people are angry and dismayed at this display of might against Palestinians.

Zionist rulers and their western imperialist backers with their control over international media have sought to portray this as Israeli response to abduction of three Jew youth in West Bank. This is only a cooked up excuse is obvious from not only its disproportionate nature but also the fact that kidnappings occurred in West Bank and this brutal military assault is being carried out against Gaza. Even if Israeli and western propaganda is believed, this collective punishment is colonial legacy which is proscribed under the international law.

This assault is Zionist Israeli rulers’ response to the unity forged between Hamas ruling in Gaza and Fatah ruling in West Bank. This unity achieved after painstaking efforts has deprived Zionist rulers and their western imperialist backers their pet excuse that Palestinians are divided so there is no partner for peace negotiations while the fact is that Zionist rulers do not want to have any peace talks at all.… Read More
