It should be stressed before rumors start that this proposed development refers only to the four houses in the block and not the rampART social center itself.

Massacre of Anti-Globalisation Demonstrators in India

11-11-2007 00:05

The Narmada Bachao Andolan campaign just sent out an urgent appeal for help.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPM], is currently massacring the people of the area Nandigram, where there have been rising protest against the establishments of Special Economic Zones. SEZs allow corporations the right to evict entire populations to construct heavy industrial projects. The SEZ in Nandigram would allow Indonesia's largest conglomerate, the Salim Group, to forcefully acquire 57km2 of land and affect 40,000 people to create a chemical hub. On the 4th of March this year 14 demonstrators were killed by a mixture of Police and CPM members, dressed as Police. Todays attempt to force the people of Nandigram from their land is far, far graver.
