DSIR: SIR Act hatao, Narmada na neer lavo! (Remove the SIR Act, bring the Narmada waters)

The people of 22 villages falling in the Dholera SIR area have been agitating against the SIR for some time now. They have made detailed representations to various administration officers and agencies as to their demands and objections to the present project. For the last 2 months they have undertaken an intense awareness drive in all the 22 villages of the SIR area and made people aware of the SIR Act and the provisions therein, what the SIR Act mandates and what the administration has been telling them and the situation that many farmers, who gave up their lands, are facing today.

They are now planning a massive sammelan in order to show the powers-that-be that they are firm and united in their protest against the SIR. Their demands are:
SIR Act hatao, Narmada na neer lavo!
(Remove the SIR Act, bring the Narmada waters)

Date: Saturday, 29th March 2014
Time: 10 a.m. to 12 noon
Venue: Behind Shree Bhavani Hotel, Bhavnagar Highway, Dholera

We request you all to remain present in large numbers in order to show solidarity with the agitating farmers.

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:
