India: Perto de 300 escritores e activistas culturais responden á situación na Cachemira: "Isto é unha burla da democracia" (inglés)

Over 200 writers and cultural activists respond to the Kashmir situation: “This is a mockery of democracy”

August 16, 2019

By revoking the special status of Jammu & Kashmir and splitting it up into two union territories, the central government has made a mockery of democracy. It has violated the solemn promises made to the state of Jammu & Kashmir by the Union of India during the accession of the state in 1947.  
The abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution and the breakup of the state has been executed unilaterally, clandestinely and coercively. The people — across religious, cultural, ethnic and ideological segments — have not been consulted. Indeed, the unprecedented security and information clampdown in the state since 5th August 2019 is proof of the government’s fear of popular discontent and democratic dissent.  
We, Indians who are writers, artists, media persons and cultural activists, condemn the undemocratic and unconstitutional moves of the government in Jammu & Kashmir. We condemn the government’s division of people and territories from above, subverting the very basis of our constitutional federalism. We condemn the state of siege imposed on the people of a state already suffering for many long years.  
We demand that the state of siege in Jammu & Kashmir be lifted, and all basic freedoms — including those of free expression, communication and media freedoms — be restored with immediate effect. We demand the restoration of Article 370, and the restoration of the state of Jammu & Kashmir. We declare our solidarity with the Kashmiri people, and call on all our fellow citizens to resist this authoritarian challenge to the freedom and autonomy of Jammu & Kashmir.

Bruxelas: Nova acción da campaña "GN Saibaba en tódalas partes"


O noso compañeiro Adolfo Naya, no marco da campaña:"GN Saibaba en tódalas partes" realizou unha pegada e distribución de panfletos, coa resolución dos expertos de dereitos humanos da ONU sobre o caso do profesor, polas próximidades da embaixada India en Bruxelas. Ao dia seguinte desapareceran os panfletos pegados, así que volveronse a pegar, sendo un indicador do caracter fascista do goberno indio que pretende ocultar a tortura que está a sufrir o profesor. 




Our comrade Adolfo Naya, in the framework of the campaign: "GN Saibaba everywhere" He glued and distribution of pamphlets, with the resolution of UN human rights experts on the case of the professor, by the proximities of the Indian embassy in Brussels.

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: A voz do profesor GN Saibaba e a súa loita contra da Operación Green Hunt, presentes en Sevilla



No Congreso Internacional “Land and Human Rights” celebrado en Sevilla dende o 12 ao 14 de xuño, e diante dun nutrido grupo de profesoras de dereito e varios sindicalistas do SAT/SOC, o antropólogo social Adolfo Naya na súa ponencia contra da Operación Green Hunt, reclamou a liberdade inmediata do profesor GN Saibaba, como unha das voces máis críticas contra desta operación xenocida,”falar do profesor GN Saibaba é falar da Operación Green Hunt”.
Na súa ponencia falou do movemento naxalita como a única alternativa que teñen os pobos Adivasis e a poboación Dalit, para defender a súa terra, bosques e auga  e construír outra sociedade, fora das lóxicas de morte e destrución do capitalismo.
 Así mesmo solicitou toda a solidariedade co movemento naxalita  para deter o xenocidio que está a levar a cabo o Goberno hinduista-fascista de Modi contra dos activistas naxalitas, Dalits e pobos Adivasis.

In his report he spoke of the Naxalite movement as the only alternative that Adivasis and the Dalit have to defend their land, forests and water, and to build another society, outside of the logics of death and destruction of capitalism.
 He also requested all solidarity with the Naxalite movement to stop the genocide being carried out by the Hindu-fascist Government of Modi against Naxalite activists, Dalits and Adivasis.

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!

India: Denuncia da gravedade do estado de saude do profesor GN Saibaba na cadea de Nagpur.

La imagen puede contener: 1 persona, primer plano

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.

Paris: Charla sobre a Guerra Popular na India e Filipinas



O venres 19 de abril, celebrouse unha charla en Paris, no marco da semana Anti-imperialista, sobre a Guerra Popular na India e Filipinas, onde Christophe Kistler editor do blogue Redspark falou da Guerra Popular nas Filipinas e o antropólogo galego Adolfo Naya falou sobre a Guerra Popular na India.
O  compañeiro Christophe fixo un relato histórico dende o colonialismo Español e posterior ianqui, ate a creación do Partido Comunista das Filipinas e o inicio da Guerra Popular. Aportando datos moi interesantes sobre a situación actual da Guerra Popular e a situación do heroico Novo Exército do Pobo (NPA) que este ano cumpliú o seu 50 aniversario.
O compañeiro Adolfo quixo salientar a importancia de atoparse nunha cidade onde se viviron momentos históricos da loita de clases, como A Comuna de Paris, o Maio do 68, a revolta dos Banlieues e agora cos chaleques amarelos. Asi mesmo recordou a figura do camarada Pierre falecido fai máis de un ano, nun fatal accidente, así como do preso político George Abdallah.
O compañeiro iniciu a súa conferencia reclamando a liberdade inmediata para o profesor GN Saibaba e todos os presos políticos na India e no mundo, facendo fincapé na importancia da solidariedade internacionalista cos presos políticos na India, así como para deter a xenocida Operación "Green Hunt".
Tamén fixo un chamado a solidariedade coa Guerra Popular na India, pola importancia que ten como movemento comunista revolucionario e como presente e futuro dunha loita por unha nova sociedade sen explotación, sen racismo, castas e patriarcado, non só para India senón para todo o mundo. Salientando a importancia da creación de verdadeiros partidos comunistas revolucionarios nos estados imperialistas como unha forma de apoiar a Guerra Popular na India.
Rematou a súa intervención declarandose "Naxalita Urbano" e con un caluroso, Lal Salaam!

Galiza: A Eurodeputada galega Lidia Senra envia unha nova carta a Alta Representante da UE, pedindo a liberación do profesor GN Saibaba


Solicitamos a reacción da Alta Representante da UE no caso do profesor universitario indio GN Saibaba

  • Ao longo da lexislatura Senra dirixiuse varias veces á CE para denunciar a situación na que se atopa este profesor universitario e referente social
  • Mogherini ten trasladado a súa preocupación polo tratamento do Goberno indio contra este home que ademais ten mobilidade reducida
Bruxelas, 05 de Xaneiro de 2019. Lídia Senra dirixiuse hoxe á Alta Representante da UE e  Vicepresidenta da Comisión Europea, Federica Mogherini, para trasladar a súa preocupación pola negativa do Tribunal Supremo de Nagpur de conceder a liberdade baixo fianza ao profesor universitario indio GN Saibaba, no cárcere por  avogar públicamente a favor dos dereitos dos pobos adivasis e dalits e denunciar a “Operación Green Hunt”.  A carta enviada hoxe por Senra dá continuidade ao diálogo aberto con Mogherini dende o ano 2016 ao respecto da represión contra defensores e defensoras de dereitos humanos na India.
A Alta Representante respostou no 2017 que a CE estaba estaba á expectativa do resultado do recurso interposto polo activista indio ante o Tribunal Supremo de Nagpur, finalmente rexeitado. “Habida conta do seu estado de saúde, empeorado logo de tantos meses illado no cárcere, a cadea perpetua ratificada polo TS de Nagpur é na práctica unha condena de morte”, alerta a eurodeputada galega na comunicación emitida hoxe.
Ao longo da presente lexislatura, Lídia Senra dirixiuse á CE a través de dúas preguntas parlamentarias escritas [1p/2p] e dúas cartas asinadas con outras deputadas/os [1c/2c], incidindo na estratexia de persecución do Goberno indio contra este profesor que padece a parálise do 90% do seu corpo, condición empeorada nos últimos meses con novas afeccións na súa saúde.
A gravidade desta situación foi tamén denunciada polas Nacións Unidas en xuño do ano pasado, instando ao Goberno indio á liberación deste profesor universitario e a proporcionarlle a atención médica precisa. Nese momento a ONU subliñou ademais en que o illamento penitenciario non debía ser aplicado a persoas con mobilidade reducida, xa que é unha medida que empeora significativamente este padecemento.
“A Comisión Europea non debe permanecer impasíbel e ser cómplice dunha nova violación dos dereitos humanos do profesor GN Saibaba. Esiximos á Comisión Europea todas as medidas necesarias para a súa liberación inmediata, así como doutros e doutras activistas polos dereitos humanos represaliados e represaliadas na India, como Surendra Gadling, Sudha Bharadwaj, Varavara Rao, Vernon Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira, Shoma Sen, Sudhir Dhawale, Rona Wilson e Mahesh Raut ”, conclúe a deputada galega.

Press Release
Varavara Raoʹs wife seeks CJIʹs intervention to release Varavara Rao
Several democrats endorse her plea
Hyderabad, March 26, 2019: In an Open Letter to Chief Justice of India, released here today at a press conference, P Hemalata, wife of Varavara Rao, the famous revolutionary poet and public intellectual, who is implicated in a criminal conspiracy case and currently imprisoned in Yerawada Central Prison, Pune, requested the CJI to intervene in the case and initiate the process to release Varavara Rao.
Varavara Rao is shown as an accused, along with others, in Bhima Koregaon violence case which was later extended to criminal conspiracy and then to the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, she said. ʹWhile he has nothing to do with the initial Bhima Koregaon violence (in fact the original perpetrators are not booked at all), I strongly suspect that my husband is implicated in the case just to silence his voice,ʹ she added.
As a college lecturer over three decades Varavara Rao came into contact with thousands of teachers and students and inspired them with his literary and academic personality. Everybody who came into contact during this long association in various capacities always found him friendly, affectionate, concerned, emotional, sensitive and reaching out to help others. His poetry for six decades is a glowing example of these personal traits of him. He is well known as poet, literary critic, social commentator and a renowned public speaker. He holds different and alternative political views and has been an ardent speaker and writer expressing those views. All through his life he stood for some values and social concerns. He has been supporting all peopleʹs struggles including Dalits, Adivasis, women, workers and minorities. He lent his intellectual inputs to Telangana separate statehood movement. He also acted as an emissary of a revolutionary party when the government wanted to have talks with the party to usher in meaningful peace, she said.
She said she was sure that he never ever involved himself in any criminal activity in his 79 years of life. His innocence or non-involvement in criminal activities was also pronounced by various law courts of the land, she added. He was implicated in as many as 25 cases in the last 45 years and police accused him of several grave charges as is being done now. But out of these 25 cases, the courts set him free finding him not guilty in 13 cases after years of prolonged trial and the other 12 cases were withdrawn by the state even before trial. Two conspiracy cases, one went on for 15 years and the other for 17 years, finally ended in his acquittal. This is a clear proof that the prosecution could not prove a single charge in a single case against him. However, he had to spend more than seven years of his precious life in various prisons as an under-trial prisoner.
Now, the Pune police also charged him with very serious and similar offences but we are certain that this case also will not stand the scrutiny of law and he will come out unscathed. In the meanwhile, he is also implicated in another case in Gadchiroli, only to prevent him from coming out on bail in Pune case. But, the issue that is worrying us a lot and the reason why we want to appeal to you is his age and failing health. When he was implicated in and imprisoned for all the false cases earlier, he was much younger and keeping good health. In fact that previous unfounded incarceration took a toll of his health and now at the age of 79 he is being subjected to another imprisonment, she said.
She clarified that she was ʹnot at all questioning the due process of law. but a person without any criminal record, a person on whom police filed about 25 cases vindictively as he was professing unpalatable views to the powers that be, a person on whom a single charge could not be proved in a court of law, a person who is ailing and 79, cannot be subjected to another round of incarceration and harassment, just because a police official fabricated some so-called evidence.ʹ
She requested the CJI to look into the mala fide intentions and the manner in which the case is made out and also order his immediate release pending the judicial trial. She requested the CJI to take immediate action on humanitarian grounds depending on Varavara Raoʹs age, health and stature as a public intellectual.
