Intensify and expand your peasant movement enough to eliminate these actions!
Show solidarity with the peasant movement through meetings and demonstrations on 25-26 November!
The historical peasant movement against the 3 agricultural laws brought by the fascist BJP government has been going on for a year. On 15 June 2020, the Brahmanic Hindutva fascist Modi government introduced three anti-agricultural regulations. On 26 and 27 November, Panjab and Haryana villagers took up the “go to Delhi” program against the undemocratic anti-agricultural laws at the parliamentary session in September. This event was a milestone in the peasant movement. In March 2021, the government surrounded Delhi with security forces as the villagers continued to agitate by setting up camps on the Singhu, Tikri and Ghajipur roads. More than 500 peasant organizations were organized under the leadership of the united peasant front and courageously advanced the movement despite fierce repression.
The government resorted to too many conspiracies to root out the movement. During this period, 11 rounds of interviews took place. The government did not take into account the main demand for the repeal of the laws. In addition, he did not reassure the minimum support price and ordered Mundis to close. Some puppet peasant organizations openly supported family laws backed by the Modi government. The corporate media constantly propagated in support of agrarian laws and tried to smear the peasant movement. The government threatened the peasant movement saying it was Naxals in Turbans when they showed solidarity with Bhima Koregaon and claimed that the Maoists had hijacked the movement. Bhima koregaon movement is a democratic movement. There is nothing wrong with supporting each other.
The government deployed police forces with three-story barricades to the roads where the villagers set up camp. BJP gangs attacked the villagers with the help of the police. They tried to start conflicts between Hindu and Muslims. Police many times sticks (bamboo stick.) applied and used tear gas. The NIA filed lawsuits against the movement's leadership. In Uttarpradesh and Panjab, BJP MLAs are attacking the villagers with the help of these gangs. Video has been released of Police SP ordering a BJP Minister to bring charges against the villagers. Arresting and beating villagers with sticks has become a routine in Punjab and Haryana.
In Uttarpradesh's Lakhimpur Kheri Ashish Misra, the son of Central Minister Ajay Misra drove his car into four villagers in distress and killed them. They opened fire on four villagers and killed them. A journalist was killed in these clashes. The Central and state governments, which openly supported the genocide, are trying to save the criminals and do not listen to the Central Minister's request for resignation.
On the other hand, on the advice of the government, the Supreme Court set up a committee to settle the peasant question. The common peasants' front boycotted this committee because there was no peasant representative for the solution of this problem. Some individuals submitted petitions to the court. The high court issued a warning to the villagers before making a decision on the petition. The court asked a question in favor of the government. What is the necessity of coming to the court by making obstacles on the roads? The court asked the villagers to stop the movement to ensure safe passage for people on the roads. With this declaration, it has been proven that the court is also a part of the oppressive state machinery. So in this way the government tries to conspiracy with the judiciary and the media to suppress the peasant movement.
Faced with the conspiracies and oppressive methods of governments, the peasant movement extended from Northern India to the Central, Southern and Eastern parts of India. The propaganda of the peasant movement regarding Punjab, Haryana and Western Uttarpradesh has been proven wrong. The movement is strengthened by the participation of women. They use Maha Panchayaths to mobilize people, send messages and develop the fighting spirit in people. Struggle surrounding BJP MLAs, demonstrations on the roads, blockades etc. Peasants held militant demonstrations in Delhi on the occasion of January 2021, 26 (Republic Day). During the parliamentary session in July, in Jantar-mantar, the peasantry held a peasant parliament and proclaimed the Man ki hamam (voice of the people). The peasantry attracts all sections of the population towards the movement, like the poor peasantry and agricultural labour. The unity and BKU between Hindu and Muslim in Uttarpradesh has been strengthened. Unions and small businesses support this movement. Students and youth in many places support the peasant demands on September 27. The nationwide blockade succeeded. In addition to peasant demands, voices were raised that day against cruel labor laws to be used against the working class. Thanks to this, the unity between the working class and the peasantry became stronger.
Imperialism is in deep crisis, trying to take over the Indian agriculture sector by introducing these agricultural laws to concentrate the agricultural spoils. Indian comprador Capitalists like Ambani and Adani are working as tools for the imperialists. The Modi government serves the imperialists and imposes fascism on the people. Using a rough majority in parliament, they introduced these agricultural laws. Imperialists have been trying to take full control over Indian agriculture since 1990, when Neoliberal economic policies started in India, which is a part of globalization. At the COP-26 summit held in the past days, the Narendra Modi government signed a 'stable agriculture action plan' with an imperialist-led memorandum of understanding. The Modi government distributes state capital in these units cheaply to corporate companies, distributing 100 public sector units. The Navaratna are put in the pockets of the imperialists. The pressures on the working class were increased by converting the labor laws into four codes. Fascist oppressive methods are used in the tribal areas of this country to plunder the mineral wealth of the indigenous people. The Modi government is building police camps and expanding its control over tribal areas to suppress the ongoing movement of indigenous peoples demanding water-forest-land-self-respect and political power. The fascist Modi government is targeting the Maoist party and the struggling people.
Alongside the ongoing peasant movement, the indigenous people of the country are fighting militantly against the police camps in Chattisgarh, police camps in India where the Silger movement is at the forefront. The consolidation of the peasant, working class and Adivasies movements is on the rise. The unity between these struggles must be strengthened.
The United Kisan front gave an ultimatum to the government to repeal these agricultural laws on 26 November. The ministers declared that the government would not respond and that the peasantry had to go to parliament for the 29th time in the winter session.
Our dear people;
Our party calls out to the people who held rallies in villages and towns to support the peasant movement on 26 November. We address the working class, Students, Youth, Women, Democrats, Journalists, Intellectuals, Artists and Patriots. We appeal to the people of this country, continue to agitate against the Brahmanic Hindutva fascist BJP government and unite with the peasantry until the farming laws are repealed. Likewise, we call on the peasant organizations to advance the movement in a militant manner.
We also support the call for “November 3 International Day of Action” issued by the international committee to protest the prahar-24 aimed at rooting out the revolutionary movement led by the CPI (Maoist). That's why we appeal to the people to protest and demonstrate on 24, 25 and 26 November.
