PRESS INVITATION: Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation, and Resettlement Bill, 2011

PRESS INVITATION

Dear Friends,

Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation, and Resettlement Bill, 2011 is scheduled to be introduced in Lok Sabha tomorrow. The Bill is to replace the colonial Land Acquisition Act, 1894 responsible for large scale forcible acquisition of the land from farmers, displacing and depriving millions and leaving them without any credible resettlement and rehabilitation.

Many of us have been engaged with the process of making of the new Bill for many years now. The new Bill however, is far from what it should be, we believe. It is in this context that we call you for a press briefing tomorrow, August 13th, 4:00 – 5:00 pm at Indian Women‘s Press Club, Windsor Place, New Delhi.

The Conference will be addressed by :

Roma, All India Union of Forest Working People
Yudhvir Singh, Bhartiya Kisan Union
Rupesh Verma, Kisan Sangharsh Samiti
Medha Patkar, National Alliance of People’s Movement (NAPM)

We look forward to having you there with us.

Warm Regards,

Madhuresh Kumar, NAPM 9818905316 Sanjeev Kumar, Delhi Solidarity Group 9958797409

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
