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Court Bench rejected Prof G.N. Saibaba's bail application, the food previous provided by the jail authorities have been withdrawn.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.

Here is the full text of the press release.

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.
Hemalataʹs Open Letter is endorsed by about 100 democrats in Hyderabad and Telangana. The letter was also posted on the online petitions site www.change.org and more than 660 people from all over the world endorsed it.
The people who signed and endorsed the Open Letter include Chukka Ramaiah (octogenarian freedom fighter and educationist), Potturi Venkateshwar Rao, K Ramachandra Murthy, K Srinivas, Ch Prashanth Reddy, S Veeraiah, Zaheeruddin Ali Khan, G S Vasu, K Satish Chandar, Devulapalli Amar, K Sreenivas Reddy, Allam Narayana, Mallepalli Laxmaiah, Sumanta Banerjee, V Vasantha Lakshmi, K Satyavati (editors and journalists), SV Satyanarayana, K Seetharama Rao, S Ramachandram, N Gopi, N Linga Murthy (vice chancellors and former vice chancellors), G Haragopal, Vasanth Kannabiran, Rama Melkote, Jacob Tharu, Susie Tharu, B Vijaya Bharati, M Kodanda Ram, E Revathi, V S Prasad, D Narasimha Reddy, M Vanamala, T Papi Reddy, Ghanta Chakrapani, K Katyayani, Banna Ailaiah (academics), Nandini Sidha Reddy, K Siva Reddy, Nikhileswar, Devipriya, Volga, Kondepudi Nirmala, Kakarala, Rama Chandra Mouli, Yakoob, Aranya Krishna, Allam Rajaiah (poets and writers), K Madhava Rao, P Lakshminarayana (retired IAS officers), Laxman Aelay, Narsim (artists), G Devi Prasad, M Raghavachary, Duddu Prabhakar, N Narayan Rao, J Koti, D V Ramakrishna Rao (leaders of trade unions and peopleʹs organizations).
