Citizenship is fundamental right of every resident and everyone born in India!

Join Rally on 14th October from Mandi House at 10.30 am to Jantar Mantar and Dharna there till 4pm

An appeal to struggling left, democratic and bahujan forces, Workers and all oppressed classes and sections including Dalits, Adivasis, backwards, minorities and women, youth and students, and people’s movements who oppose corporate-fascist forces and struggle for people’s alternative for democracy and development!

Compatriots, struggling people of our country,
We are now living in an extremely difficult situation. On the one hand the economy is in doldrums. Workers are losing jobs, unemployment is rampant. Distress in the agricultural sector is intensifying. On the other hand, every field, every issue is communalised.. An atmosphere of hatred and intolerance is created, leading to mob lynching like incidents increasing fast. Modi-2 is unleashing fascist terror to impose its dictates. This is what is happening to the people of J&K where Article 370 and 35 A were abrogated on 5th August, downgrading the state to two union territories without consulting the people of the state in any form. The whole state is militarized, put under prohibitory orders and all communications and democratic rights are cut down. Refusing to recognize the diversity of the country with different languages and culture, there are attempts to impose Hindi based on one nation, one language. Beginning with talking about Congress less, opposition less India, now the fascist forces have starting talking about one nation, one party!
The NRC/Assam was constituted unconstitutionally and speeded up by the supreme Court, the final list was announced on 31st August declaring 19,06,657 people stateless. Large number of them are Adivasis and dalits including those taken from Jharkhand, Bihar etc by Britishers for plantations, Nepalese, and almost half of them from Muslim minority, all of whom presently residents of the state. They are given 120 days to get clearance from Foreigners’ Tribunals or from higher courts. Otherwise they are going to be thrown in Detention Camps. This is a most inhuman step. We demand the repeal of NRC/Assam.

Modi-2 is trying to get the Citizenship (Amendments) Bill, 2016, which was passed by the Lok Sabha on 8th January, 2019, adopted by the parliament somehow. It is against the secular values of the Constitution and for communally discriminating against Muslims in line with the Two-nation theory initiated by Savarkar, while granting citizenship to migrants (from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan) including Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian. We demand the immediate withdrawal of this Bill.

While various BJP chief ministers and leaders are clamouring for NRC in all states, the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Notification of 31st July, the Central Government has already decided to prepare and update the National Population Register(NPR) at all India level on a time bound manner by starting the field work for it from 1st April to 30th September, 2020. If this NPR process is taken up based on the Citizenship (Amendments) proposed in BJP’s Bill, it will become binding on the whole population to prove their citizenship. It is apprehended that almost 40 to 50 million people, who are born in India and presently staying here, may lose citizenship. It will create a horrific situation and an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy. So we demand that the whole process of NPR should be abandoned and all people presently living in this country and born here should br recognized as Indian citizens.

Friends, as a result of all these the country is in a horrific situation.The economy is in recession, life of the masses has become increasingly miserable, while the fascist forces becoming more aggressive are destroying the unity of the people and engaged in putting down all voices of resistance. This critical situation demands the unity of all exploited and oppressed masses. Let us raise our voice in unison against corporate-fascist forces and for ensuring citizenship for all as the fundamental right of all who are living in India now.

STOP URENIUM MINING: SAVE NALLAMALA

A Team visited Nallamala, Nagar Karnool district Amrabad , Parda mandal, Telangana state. Team members consisted of Maluguru Saidaiah, Mallesh, Santosh, T. Ramesh represented by CPI(ML) Red Star, RYFI, AIRSO, OPDR Telangana and AIKKS.

Uranium (similar to the demon in the bottle, as the demon swallowed us with the bottle lid) is as safe as it is in the earth. When it comes out of the ground, it first reacts with the oxygen in the air and breaks down into oxide and fuses into the air. When it comes out, it comes with nuclear radiation. It has more nuclear power. Its density is about 75 percent higher than that of lead. Its half-life is 450 years. Nuclear reactors emit high temperatures during reaction. The most powerful fuel used in nuclear weapons is the U-235, which can make an atomic bomb with as little as 7 kg of uranium. The most dangerous form of futonium (PU-239) is from uranium (U-238).

Uranium ejects the most dangerous beta, gamma ray, in each of its chemical reactions. In this case, nuclear energy enters the bodies of human beings and animals after entering the air and settling in the bones. This makes it easier to spread cancer. The extraction of uranium from the ground will cause the delayed air to become poisonous.

Radioactive materials emitted from raw ore have been in the atmosphere for thousands of years, covering hundreds of square kilometers from the uranium mining area. Thus, animals that inhale air (including humans), drink water, and die of lung cancer. Hundreds of generations are at risk of being emotionally tortured by unborn offspring or completely offspring.

Prevention of spermatogenesis in men, impaired release of ovaries in women, and cervical cancer. In 2009, Uranium mined in potholes, sheep and goats are dying in rain-fed pits. It is a risk if uranium is extracted from underground mines or through open wells. With this understanding, uranium mining must be opposed. Tell future generations.

Impact on the Environment

Uranium pollutes air, water, soil and food, according to a report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The air travels like dust and reaches the water. So that the plants absorb. When it rains, this nuclear energy gets into the dust. Drinking water is more likely to be in areas where bores are dug for uranium. It travels long distances in land surface water. Uranium landmarks are mixed with clay. The roots of plants and trees are stored there.

Dug wells of up to 1000 feet for uranium mining will result in water sources below 200-300 feet deep. This causes groundwater shortages and water shortage. Due to the presence of nuclear reactors in the naturally occurring rivers and water bodies, the water sources can be turned into toxic substances and the aquifers will disappear. Reaction of carbon with fiery uranium produces uranium monoxide and uranium dioxide, releasing temperatures of 1800 degrees centigrade. Therefore, the ozone layer in the atmosphere and the terrestrial warming will have serious consequences in the seasons. Human survival becomes questionable. Biodiversity is damaging. According to the Central Agricultural Protection Act, no industries are allowed within 25 km of the tiger reserve.

Why are Black People Opposed?

Nallamala is now the most fertile forest area in the 7 districts. A region of lush green hills, cliffs and dense forests, which provides natural protection to South India. The most suitable area for wildlife habitat. This is a black cat for cats, human beings and other livestock. This plateau is the lifeblood of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. So naturally when the earth moves under the legs, inevitably people pick up resistance struggles.

The central and state governments have been attacking the blacksmiths with international and domestic companies for ameliorating the American bloodstream. They are trying to suppress public movements in the name of forest laws. Now that these hypocrites of the rulers have been exposed, they have now resorted to the evil plan of evacuating villages from the area in the form of a new forest officer called ¹shakti ‘. As part of this, the first phase in the name of tiger conservation was to move.

Compatriots, struggling people of our country,

  1. We are living in an extremely difficult situation when every field, every issue is communalized by the Manuvadi Hindutva forces under Modi raj. It is creating atmosphere of hatred and intolerance, and unleashes fascist terror to impose its dictates. This is what is happening to the people of J&K where Article 370 and 35-A were abrogated on 5th August, downgrading the state to two union territories without consulting the people of the state in any form, and violating Constitutional provisions. The whole state is militarized, put under prohibitory orders and all communications and democratic rights are cut down. This Convention strongly condemns these steps of Modi-2 and demand the restoration of the special rights of the people of J&K including their right to self determination. It demands the immediate withdrawal of the army to barracks and restoration of all communications and fundamental rights of the citizens.
  2. This Convention severely condemns the hasty way the NRC/Assam was constituted unconstitutionally and speeded up by the supreme Court, the final list was announced on 31st August declaring 19,06,657 people as stateless. Large number of them are Adivasis including Adivasis and dalits taken from Jharkhand, Bihar etc by Britishers for plantations, Nepalese, and almost half of them from resident Muslim minority, all of whom presently residents of the state. They are given 120 days to get clearance from Foreigners’ Tribunals or later from higher courts. Otherwise they shall be thrown in Detention Camps. This is a most inhuman step condemned by democratic forces internationally and within the country. This Convention demands immediate cancellation of the NRC/Assam list prepared against the constitutional principles; it demands that citizenship should be provided for all, as they are residents of the state and/or born in India.
  3. Modi-2 is trying to get the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, which was passed by the Lok Sabha on 8th January, 2019, adopted by the parliament somehow. It is against the secular values of the Constitution and for communally discriminating against Muslims in line with the Two-nation theory initiated by Savarkar, while granting citizenship to migrants (from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan) including Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi, and Christian. This Convention calls for the immediate withdrawal of this Bill.
  4. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Notification of 31st July, the Central Government has already decided to prepare and update the National Population Register (NPR) at all India level on a time bound manner, as the NRC/Assam was finalized, by starting the field work for it from 1st day of April, 2020 to 30th September, 2020. If this NPR process is taken up based on the Citizenship (Amendments) proposed in BJP’s Bill, with the aim of driving out ‘all migrants’, it will become binding on the whole population to prove their citizenship.  It is apprehended that almost 20 millions or more people, who are born in India and presently staying here, may lose citizenship. It will create a horrific situation and an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy. This Convention demands that the whole process of NPR should be abandoned recognizing the criteria for citizenship based on the Constitution and international covenants adopted by the government of India. This Convention demands that construction of Detention Camps should be stopped forthwith.

In order to take these decisions of this Convention to the people and to create public opinion in support of it, all organizations who are part of this Convention, together other like-minded organizations, shall organize a people’s  mobilization on 15th October at Juntar Mantar to put these demands before the government; all the constituents of this move shall constitute a joint forum and carry forward the campaign with the slogan “No to NRC/Assam, No to NPR, Citizenship is the fundamental right of every resident and everyone born in India”, coordinating with similar movements started in different states, to save the country from a horrific humanitarian tragedy and Constitutional crisis created by the fascist RSS/BJP regime.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
