Mass Rally – Bhumi Adhikar Andolan (Movement for Land Rights)

 Press Release

 Bhumi Adhikar Andolan to hold mass rally against Land Ordinance on 5th May, 2015 at Sansad Marg

 2nd May, 2015, New Delhi: The collective of people’s movements and organizations who organized the mass rally on 24th February at Parliament Street against the Land Acquisition Ordinance of the NDA government have emerged as the national platform in the name of “Bhumi Adhikar Andolan” working all over the country to advance the struggle of the farmers, workers and the larger public against the draconian Land Acquisition Ordinance 2015.

 In a press conference held on 2nd of May at IWPC Delhi, representatives of people’s movements, farmer organizations, worker’s unions and people’s organisations, among others, associated with the Bhumi Adhkar Andolan appealed to all the pro-people, progressive and secular forces to join hands for “Bhumi Adhikar Sangharsh Rally” on 5th May at Parliament street to protest against the anti-people move of the NDA Government of bringing ordinances on the sensitive issue of land without any consultation or regard to farmers-workers, agriculture and nature of this country. The press conference was addressed by Hannan Mollah from the All India Kisan Sabha (36 Canning Lane), Atul Anjan from the All India Kisan Sabha (Ajoy Bhawan), Satyavan from the All India Krishak Khet Mazdoor Union, Roma from the All India Union for Forest Working People and Bhupinder Singh Rawat from NAPM.

Thousands of representatives from various farmer organizations, trade unions, women organizations, youth organizations, including urban poor, fish workers and tribals will be a part of the rally to be held on 5th of May, 10 am at Sansad Marg, Delhi. The Modi Sarkar, which is favoring the interests of the corporates at the cost of livelihood of thousands and impacting the most marginalized section severely, is leaving no stone unturned to bring the land ordinance. Land acquisition is being carried out at full speed in various parts of the country and in many places the disagreement expressed by people is being brutally suppressed. The tax exemptions offered to corporates in the 2015-16 budget, the land ordinance and a series of amendments which are expected in other crucial acts like those relating to forests and coasts are bound to strike the lives and livelihoods of lakhs of people in this country and leave them with no choice but to become migrants laborers and lead a life of extreme poverty, vulnerability and uncertainty.
