India: Five Farmers Killed and several injured in Madhya Pradesh : Condemn the Outrageous Police Firing says Harsh Thakor
At least five farmers were killed and several injured in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district on Tuesday when police fired on protesters demanding better prices in the drought-ravaged region that recorded a farm suicide every five hours in 2016-17.
Angry farmers ransacked and set ablaze a police outpost after the firing as the administration clamped curfew on Pipalia town, the epicentre of violence, rushed extra forces and withdrew internet services to tamp down on social media rumours fanning violence.
Throughout the day, the BJP government denied any police firing and confirmed the five deaths only in the evening.
CONDEMN THE OUTRAGEOUS POLICE FIRING WHICH IS AN ATTACK ON A GENUINE PEASANT'S AGITATION AND AN ILLUSTRATION OF THE FASCIST PRO-CORPORATE ECONOMIC POLICIES.
IT REMOVES ANY ILLUSION PEOPLE HAVE ABOUT BOURGEOS DEMOCRACY AND HOW THE PRESENT STATE TRAMPLES ON ALL JUST MOVEMENTS OF OPRESSED CLASSES.STREAMS ARE BEING CONVERTED INTO A MIGHTY OCEAN.
REVOLUTIONARIES MUST SEIZE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLAIN TO EVERY SECTION OF THE MASSES HOW THE TENTCALES OF RULING BJP GOVT IS HAPPENING DAY BY DAY TO SUPRESS EVERY JUST MOVEMENT AND HOW THE ECONOMIC POLICIES ARE VIRTUALLY STRANGLING THE WORKING CLASS AND PEASANTRY.
SALUTE THE PEASANT AGITATORS FOR DISPLAYING GREAT COURAGE.SUICIDES SPRINGING UP I THOUSANDS BE IT IN PUNJAB,ORISSA OR MAHARASHTRA.THINGS WILL ONLY WORSEN DAY BY DAY WHICH WILL CREATE SCENES REMINISCENT OAF THE TIME BEFORE THE FRENCH REVOLUTION .
THE ANGER OF PEASANTRY IS SIMMERING LIKE A POT OF WATER BOILING .NO BETTER ILLUSTRATION OF HOW FASCIST THE SOCIAL ORDER HAS BECOME AND HOW ITS IS TIGHTENING ITS NOOSE AROUND TO SUPRESS POTENTIAL UPRISINGS.
THE PROTESTING FARMERS REPRESENT THE VOICE OF THE ENTIRE NATION AND REVOLUTIONARIES SHOULD EXPLOIT THIS CRISIS TO EXPOSE HOW ANTI-PEOPLE THE SO CALLED PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY IS AND ONLY BY STRIVING FOR A GENUINE REVOLUTIONARY ALTERNATIVE CAN ANY CHANGE BE BROUGHT ABOUT.IDEAL ILLUSTARTION OF HOW THE CURRENT ECONOMIC POLICIES IS PUUTING THE LIVES OF THE BROAD MASSES ON A PRECIPICE.
