A protest Demonstration on 4th March
Dear Friends !
We are sending you our appeal for your solidarity and support on behalf of National Movement For Land, Labor & Justice- NMLLJ and Forum against EWS Land Grab, Bangalore Karnataka.
Hope you are already aware of the illegal-demolition and eviction of 1200 families from a slum in Bangalore, where they were living for more than 20 years .
This brutal action was enacted by the combined violence of police, pvt goons, and government officials.The whole purpose is to grab the 15.64 acres of prime land on which they were living. it is between Jan 18--20. but even today the evicted people are living on footpath. this is the first where a `corporate land sharing project ` under PPP is being introduced in entire south India, in Urban poor Housing. If this move is not resisted , it only pave way to more and more land grab from slum people all over. What we are experiencing in the country is the diminishing Democracy and flourishing Corporatocracy.
At this Juncture we request all democratic organization at Delhi to extend support and solidarity in resisting, exposing and get back the land grabbed from the social groups -historically marginalized.
.We seek your support and solidarity in organizing a protest Demonstration on 4th March at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi and a CSO consultation on 6th at Delhi. A strong struggle group from Forum against EWS Land Grab, Bangalore Karnataka.
We request you to play a prominent / leading role in actualizing organized mass protest at Delhi on 4th march. Around 20 people from Bangalore forum that led the struggle so far, will be joining the protest.
Please see these attachments & Photos for more details.
