They (hindutva forces) are fighting for their principles, it may look wrong to us, but it’s the ultimate truth to them. if someone voices opposing views, be it their son, their own foot soldier, they kill them.
It is 24th September today, it is one of the black days in the history of Dalits, 24-Sep 1932 was when Dalits under the leadership of Dr. Ambedkar, were denied of separate electorate, Poona Pact (dual voting system). If Dalits were allotted separate electorate, things would have been different for Dalits.
The motto of our movement is “Food, My Choice; Land, My Right.” We have the right to choose what we eat, nobody can question us. This land belongs to us, because we are the ones working on it, hence we have the right to own it. The intention is not just to own fives acres of land but also to resist oppression and claim our rights to live and rule.
I call upon all progressive friends, revolutionaries, dalit brothers and sisters, ambedkarites and also political parties - who believe that the landless and dalits must be allotted the 5-acre land - to all assemble in Maninagar on 01-Oct and participate in the Rail Roko.
The principle of Self-determination is one of the most important principles to make sure that the nations of the world can live in peace, and violation of this law is an attack on world peace. Stop atrocities against the Kashmiri people! Free Kashmir!
