OPPOSE THE FASCIST DESIGNS OF THE STATE IN SNATCHING THE RIGHTS ALREADY IN THE HANDS OF THE OPPRESSED DALIT COMMUNITY.
IT PROVES THAT THE CURRENT MODI GOVT.IS BANGING EVERY NAIL AND COFFIN TO TOTALLY ISOLATE THE DALIT COMMUNITY AND STRENGTHEN EVERY PART OF THE MACHINERY TO WEAKEN ANY DEMOCRATIC RESISTANCE OF THEM.
WE MUST SALUTE ALL THE FORCES WHO WITHSTOOD THE POLICE BARRICADES TO IMPLEMENT PROTEST.IT IS PART AND PARCEL OF THE FASCIST AGENDA OF THE MODI GOVT.
ON A WHOLE.A MOST ENCOURAGING AND POSITIVE ROLE PLAYED BY PUNJAB STUDENTS UNION AND ZAMEEN PRAPTI SANGHARSH COMMITTEE IN PLACES LIKE SANGRUR, LUDHIANA, NAKODAR, FARIDKOT, PATIALA AND MUKTSAR IN SANGRUR
OVER 7000 PEOPLE CONGREGATED.WITH GREAT DEDICATION THE PUNJAB STUDENTS UNION INTEGRATED WITH THE LANDLESS DALIT COMMUNITY TO SHIMMER THE TORCH OF LIBERATION.SALUTE VANGUARD ROLE PLAYED BY PSU AND ZPSC IN WORKING TO EXTINGUISH THE FASCIST HINDU SAFFRON FORCES.
A protracted movement was launched in several regions of the state by Punjab Students Union and Zameen Prapti Sangharsh commitee to protest against the fascist court ruling against the dalit comunity.
I received a report from Pardeeo Kasba,secretary of PSU who told me about the efforts of the student activists and the repression faced in Sangrur where they faced a major attack.Protests took place in Sangrur,Faridkot,Ludhiana,Nakodar,Amritsar and Muktasr.
The grassroots work of the ZPSC and the PSU played a major role in the rallies making an impact because of the perseverance of ideological grounding.Killing of protesters by police during Bharat Bandh strongly condemned
ZPSC strongly condemns the firing by police on the people, killing a number of them, protesting against Supreme Court order virtually doing away with The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act. Supreme Court issued this order despite rise in the number of murders, rapes, assaults and other atrocities being perpetrated against these sections and despite high pendency and very low conviction rate of the cases under the Act.
There have been countrywide protests against this Supreme Court order. People from different walks of life came out in protests. Rail and road traffic was blocked at a number of places and large rallies were organized by the people.
To crush these protests, Govt. took recourse to prohibitory orders, lathi-charged the people and fired live bullets on the protesters in which a number of them have been killed.
Today’s protests are against the growing atrocities against Dalits and other oppressed sections. Today’s protests are against the ruling class forces which are conspiring to finish off reservation from oppressed sections. Today’s protests are also against the conspiracy to impose upper caste chauvinist rule in the name of Hindutva by the ruling dispensation.
ZPSC calls upon the people to continue the protests against the Supreme Court order as well as the attempts by the Govt. to suppress the protests. We pay our homage to those who have laid down their lives against the chauvinist fascist rulers.
We call upon all forces against caste oppression and suppression of the rights of the oppressed sections to join hands against the attempts by the Govt. and other wings of the state to deny them their rights.
