National Convention of People’s Struggles

National Convention of People’s
in defence of democracy, to protect
land, water, forest and livelihoods
November 29-30, Dhinkia, Jagatsinghpur,
movements defending land, water, environment, livelihood, and democratic rights
are coming together to organise a national convention in defense of democracy
next month in Odisha, in the context of burgeoning onslaughts under the new
new government at the centre has made it amply clear that it is going to pursue
the pro-corporate and anti-people policies of the previous dispensation with
much more vigor, coercion, and rapid pace. The reality of ‘achchhe din’ stands
exposed and the people’s aspiration for better life has been channelised to
nefarious communal polarisation.
its very first quarter, the new government has shown its true intentions:
allowing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) not only in multi-brand retail but
also in the defense sector; amending the existing labor laws to suit the
industry; diluting environmental laws to turn clearances into mere formalities;
and even to amend the much flawed Land Acquisition Act brought by the previous
regime in order to do away with the minimum relief it provided to the people.  
new PM and his government’s silence on the communal riots and the attempts made
its political affiliates to vitiate the communal environment in the run up to
the recent by-polls has surpassed the famous silence of Manmohan Singh
government on corruption. Communal groups, including elected party officials
are making inflammatory statements and stoking communal tensions. The communal
Hindutva agenda, together with all that underlies it, is rapidly permeating the
very air we breathe.
these threats of corporate loot of natural resources as well as communalism are
greatly undermining our democracy. Resistances by people and movements against
the economic offensive will be met by an aggressive repressive regime as well
as by extra-constitutional violent outfits supporting the regime. Even the
judiciary will be weakened through various means and the corporate-controlled
media will turn a blind eye.
an ordeal before the people’s movement has very few precedents in recent
history. It is in this context, that the people’s movements and democratic
groups have decided to call for a national convention during 29-30 November
2014 in Dhinkia village of Jagatsinghpur, Odisha to discuss the challenges and
the way ahead.
