India: Harsh Thakor Says Salute Gathering on 21st December in Kolkata against State Fascism.
SALUTE PROTEST GATHERING ON DECEMBER 21st AT KOLKATA COLLEGE SQUARE TO DAY RESSURECTING THE SPIRIT OF REVOLUTIONARY RESISTANCE AGAINST STATE FASCISM.
I WAS PRESENT AT THE WHOLE GATHERING AND APPLAUDED THIS JOINT EFFORT OF COMMUNIST REVOLUTIONARY FORCES AND DEMOCRATIC ORGANIZATIONS REPRESENTING ALL TRENDS WITHIN THE REVOLUTIONARY CAMP,CONDEMNING THE FASCIST KILLING OF MAOIST COMRADES AND ADIVASIS IN MALKANGIRI,
MUSLIMS IN BHOPAL AND MAOISTS IN KERALA.ALTHOUGH CONSTITUTING ABOUT 500 PEOPLE SUCH AN EFFORT SOWS THE SEEDS FOR A MAJOR TORRENT TO OCCUR.
PRIVILEGED TO SEE SUCH FIERCE DETERMINATION THROUGHOUT THE REVOLUTIONARY CAMP PRESENT TODAY AND THE BURNING ENTHUSIASM OF THE YOUTH AT THE END SHOUTING SLOGANS CONDEMNING THE MALKANGIRI MASSACRE..THE END DID FITTING JUSTICE TO THE SPIRIT OF THE PROGRAMME.
A great rally was staged at College Square comprising around 600 persons in Kolkata where participants came from the Class Struggle,Red Star,P.C.C and New Democracy factions of the C.P.I.(M.L.),United Democratic Students front supporting C.P.I.(Maoist),Radical group,Shramik Sangram Union etc.
It was presided by Purnendu Mukherjee CC member of C.P.I.(Maoist) who was released on bail on health grounds and Gaur Chakravorty.
What was heartening was that all sections of the Communist revolutionary camp participated and some pr-worker organizations.
In the end Youth of the United Students Democratic Front vehemently shouted slogan s condemning the Malkangiri encounters and Bhopal Killings.
In fact it was the youth who gave the programme it's life.All speakers related the fascist nature of the killings and how this state is becoming more and more repressive day by day.
Irrespective of differences all agreed that one has to be sympathetic to the Maoist brethren and the Muslim victims.
Such a programme all though quantitatively small in the qualitative sense lays the roots for building an anti-fascist movement.
I was deeply impressed with the enthusiasm of all the participants be it youth tribals, students or workers.
It proved the potential of a democratic movement emerging.
In the moral sense a red flame lit the Red square.
