Rally held for Saibaba in Surrey


Dozens of political activists came together to raise their voices for jailed Delhi University Professor G.N. Saibaba at a rally held in Surrey on Sunday, June 16.
Organized by Indians Abroad for Pluralist India (IAPI), the rally was aimed at drawing international attention to the deteriorating health of physically challenged Prof. Saibaba who is being incarcerated under inhuman conditions by the Indian state.
Wheelchair-bound Saibaba is ninety percent disabled below the waist, and is suffering with 19 ailments. Yet, the Indian judiciary has refused to set him free on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
So much so, the Indian government isn’t listening to the demand for clemency to Saibaba by international bodies, such as United Nations.
IAPI believes that Saibaba is being persecuted for standing for the religious minorities and other oppressed groups. He was given a life sentence after being branded as a Maoist sympathizer although he functioned as a responsible social justice activist and Human Rights Defender while remaining within the framework of the Indian constitution.
The speakers at the rally unanimously condemned the high handedness of the Indian state and asked for his immediate release. They also pointed out that the Indian courts are being selective, as they have already given bails on medical grounds to much more dangerous right wing Hindu extremists affiliated with the ruling Hindu nationalist Bhartiya Janata Party involved in violent acts, while Saibaba continues to suffer.
Among those who spoke on the occasion was Guru Nanak Sikh temple Surrey-Delta President Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who expressed his unconditional solidarity with Saibaba. Nijjar had earlier made an appeal to the community on social media to participate in the rally.
Amal Vincent from Teaching Support Staff Union came out to read a statement issued in support of Saibaba on the occasion. The statement has asked the Canadian government to urgently intervene into the matter.
None of the elected officials invited showed up. However, the Conservative Party candidate Harpreet Singh joined the rally and expressed his support for Saibaba.
Others who spoke on the occasion were progressive Punjabi poet Amrit Diwana, Barjinder Singh of Sikh Nation, Joseph Theriault from Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), Guru Nanak Sikh temple Secretary Gurmeet Singh Toor, a visiting activist from India Rawait Singh from Saibaba’s Revolutionary Democratic Front and IAPI spokesman Gurpreet Singh.
The participants also raised slogans against state violence and carried placards asking for the release of all political prisoners, including Saibaba.
The rally was started with a moment of silence in memory of towering Indian film star and activist Girish Karnad, who passed away recently. He was in the forefront of campaigns against repression and growing attacks on religious minorities.

Estado Español: Denuncia da Operación "Green Hunt" no Congreso Internacional "Land and Human Rights" que se vai celebrar en Sevilla, dende os dias 12 ao 14 de xuño.



O noso compañeiro o antropólogo Adolfo Naya, participará como poñente no Congreso Internacional "Land and Human Rights" que se vai celebrar en Sevilla, dende os dias 12 ao 14 de xuño, para denunciar a Operación xenocida "Green Hunt" e a persecución que sofren os activistas na India.

Genocidio contra la defensa de la tierra: Operación “Cacería Verde” en India

Introducción
Las empresas multinacionales, en connivencia con el gobierno Indio, se benefician de la “legitimidad” del Estado, en tanto que poseedor del monopolio de la violencia, para reprimir, expulsar de sus tierras, asesinar, violar y cientos de atrocidades más, utilizadas en nombre del “desarrollo” y el “progreso” contra poblaciones humanas que no quieren, o no están dispuestas, a dejar su tierra, o a vivir de la manera que el Estado y el capitalismo quieren.
El desarrollo de los instrumentos sociales de dominación y de los aparatos estatales de coerción produce resistencia por las clases oprimidas, lo cual genera formas de resistencia no violenta y de denuncia, o bien puede llevar a la creación de fuerzas políticas insurgentes, como ha sucedido en determinados Estados de la India con la guerrilla naxalita.
Método
En un análisis comparativo, tanto documental como sobre terreno, de más de dos años, con genocidios y con la estrategia de contrainsurgencia llamada «Corazones y mentes» que se aplicó en Malasia, Indonesia, Guatemala, El Salvador o Perú, el estudio revela las prácticas genocidas que esta estrategia de contrainsurgencia utilizó en el pasado y en el presente en el caso de la India con la denominada Operación “Cacería Verde”.
Resultados
A la vista de las características expuestas en la presente investigación cabe concluir que los ataques que están teniendo lugar en la India contra los pueblos Adivasis y Dalits –tanto aquellos que resisten pacíficamente, como quienes pertenecen al movimiento armado naxalita-, constituyen una práctica genocida. Es decir, que “en parte” algunos grupos nacionales de la India están siendo eliminados con el objetivo de alterar las relaciones sociales dentro de la propia nación.
Discusión
La ponencia pondrá de relieve las prácticas sociales genocidas que se están aplicando en la India contra los pueblos Adivasis, Dalits y militantes naxalitas, que se oponen a la expansión capitalista, así como el debate sobre la definición de genocidio en conflictos políticos.
Palabras clave: genocidio, desarrollo económico y social, progreso social, resistencia a la opresión, violencia, recursos naturales.

India: ALERTA! o Dr. Saibaba ten sufrido un ataque cardiaco o pasado 25 de maio.

 

Según unha entrada no facebook da compañeira Vasantha Kumari, hoxe ten recibido unha carta do profesor GN Saibaba, dende a carcere na que le informa que o pasado 25 de maio sufriou unha crisis cardiaca, na que foi atendido por persoal penitenciario mesmo polos medicos. Suliña a atuación dun carceleiro que ocupouse particularmente, afirmando que le salvo a vida. Denuncia as altas temperaturas na cadea e tamen relata que a cadeira de rodas atopase cada vez máis deteriorada.
O tono da compañeira Kumari é de total desespero e desamparo. Dende Galiza enviamolle moitos animos e saudos vermellos.
Facemos un enerxico chamado as organizacions e persoas democraticas do noso país a denunciar estes feitos, contrarios a unha basica atención aos presos políticos que so pode ter por obxeto a morte na cadea do profesor GN Saibaba.

Liberdade inmediata ao profesor GN Saibaba! 
Basta de crimens e represión na India!

After the Nagpur High Court Bench rejected Prof G.N. Saibaba's bail application, the food previous provided by the jail authorities have been withdrawn. They stopped giving milk, egg etc.
Present health condition of Prof. G.N. Saibaba under prevailing heat wave in Nagpur
Today i.e. on 11.05.2019 (Saturday), I met my brother Dr. G. N. Saibaba on Jail mulakath to know his present health condition and to give some books and medicines. During our less than a half an hour jail mulakath conversation, I could not able to get full information on his health issues, brisk exchange of words through the two wired telephones on either side of the faded acrylic glass sheet, I am hereby giving a very brief report.
1. The summer sun in Nagpur on 11th May 2019 is very warm, humid and terribly hot. The sun rays directly enter from 9 AM to 5 PM into the small “Anda Cell” (so called high security cell), where Dr.G.N. Saibaba was put in. He said it is impossible to bear such a hotness to stay in the Anda Cell during entire daytime. Even though requested for cooler to survive from heat wave, so far, no arrangements have been made.
2. The jail authorities are repeated telling that they provided two assistants to Dr. Saibaba for help. But the two attendants are the persons who were also convicted in the same case along with Dr. G.N. Saibaba. The two are very innocent and the authorities are indirectly pressurising them not to extend help properly to Dr. Saibaba. The two are helpless, worried about their families and under fear.
3. The Doctors at Government Medical College, Nagpur advised him not to expose to high temperatures in the summer due to his existing cardiac problem.
4. He is unable to urinate and pass stool (feces) due to very hot atmospheric conditions. This also affects his kidneys. The burning sensation while passing urine has been increased many folds.
5. He is unable to take food. But the new development is that the food whatever taken is not digesting cause pain. The stomach is showing high burning sensation.
6. Skin is also showing itching and burning feelings.
7. His left hand is already not functioning due to traumatic brachial plexopathy. Now his right hand is also becoming slowly non-functioning. Both the hands are trembling severely. It has been difficult at least to hold a spoon while eating and properly feeding into the mouth because of shivering of hands.
8. The Nagpur Governmental Medical College doctors advised physiotherapy on a daily basis. But is has been very difficult for Dr. Saibaba to attend at the hospital since he is unable to shift by himself from the wheel chair to the bed and back and due to unavailability of security personnel.
9. Nagpur Governmental Medical College doctors also advised use of six pillows, hot and cold packs along the back. But so far, the Jail authorities did not provide any of these.
10. After the Nagpur High Court Bench rejected his bail application, the food previous provided by the jail authorities have been withdrawn. They stopped giving milk, egg, etc.
11. In an earlier order, the Jail authorities rejected our family members application requesting to shift Dr. Saibaba from Nagpur Central jail to Cherlapalli central Jail, Hyderabad.
12. Day by day his health is deteriorating rapidly. We request the Maharashtra Government and the honourable Governor of Maharashtra to allow shifting of Dr. Saibaba from Nagpur Central jail to Cherlapalli central Jail, Hyderabad under his very bad health condition and multiple illnesses. In Hyderabad, Govt hospitals have the facility to address his all ailments. In Hyderabad, where I am residing along with my mother, we can give the required medicines and extend moral support to him.
