Denounce State terror in Nandigram, West Bengal

To: The Governor, Government of West Bengal

We are writing this to register our strongest protest against the police firing in Nandigram, on 14th March 2007, killing around 20 villagers and injuring hundreds.

In the name of industrialisation, the CPI(M) led government has embarked on a policy of forcibly acquiring agricultural land, using a colonial land acquisition law. Because of this, thousands of farmers and landless labourers have been robbed of their livelihood and thousand more await such a fate.

Faced with strong resistance in the villages, the state has unleashed the barbaric police force and the cadres of CPI(M), on the protesting villages, with a license to injure or even kill. This happened at Singur in December 2006, Nandigram in January and February 2007. We strongly condemn these incidents of state repression.

Today, peace has disappeared from all such areas of West Bengal where the government is adamant on procuring land on behalf of the industrial houses. The “leftist” government has become aggressive partners in the neoliberal agenda of profits for a few at the cost of lives of millions of helpless people.

As a group of people committed to uphold the democratic aspirations of the people of West Bengal and elsewhere, we urge you to immediately take steps such that –

1. A judicial enquiry is conducted regarding the police firing in Nandigram so that the guilty are punished

2. All police forces are withdrawn from the affected villages and the media and other concerned people are allowed to have free access to these places

3. Plans of forced acquisition of agricultural lands are put on hold and the land acquired in Singur is returned to the owners

4. A democratic process is initiated for a healthy debate on the path of development to be followed
