Arrest Of Medha Patkar: Dr Vacy Vlazna Writes To Indian Hight Commissioner


His Excellency Dr Ajay Marotrao GONDANE
High Commission of India
Canberra Australia
Your Excellency
I urge the government of India to immediately end the shocking forceful evictions of 40,000 families in Narmada Valley….

“The peaceful resistance of the courageous children of Narmada mayya to the rank injustice and violence by the very pillars of our Constitution, has received unconditional support from all over the world. The whole, unvarnished truth of the decades-long resistance of the children of Narmada mayya against State repression cries for wide media coverage; even the on-going crisis is barely reported. But right now, the demand is for justice, although the much more immediate demand is that the forcible eviction must be stopped and the SSP dam gates should be immediately opened. The children of Narmada will fight this as a last-ditch battle.” Major General S.G. Vombatkere

It is painful to see, on the heroic 75th anniversary of Quit India, the vicious attacks against courageous Medha Patkar and her 4 fellow hunger strikers upholding the Ghandian spirit, the rise of Hindvita fascism, the perpetual violent caste oppression of Dalits, and India’s atrocities in Kashmir.

Deeply shocked

Dr Vacy Vlazna
Collaroy, 2097, Guringai Land
