the BATTLE is ON!!!

डब्ल्यूटीओ बैठक के विरोध में प्रदर्शन, गिरफ्तारियां दीं
नई दिल्ली, जासं : विश्व व्यापार संगठन (डब्ल्यूटीओ) के विरोध में सोमवार को मौर्या शेरेटन होटल के पास किसानों एवं यूथ फॉर जस्टिस के बैनर तले जुटे लोगों ने प्रदर्शन कर गिरफ्तारियां दीं। ये इस बात को लेकर विरोध जता रहे थे कि डब्ल्यूटीओ की चल रही बैठक में उनके पक्ष को उठाने वाला कोई नहीं है। भारतीय किसान यूनियन के प्रदेश अध्यक्ष युद्धवीर सिंह ने कहा कि होटल में 70 करोड़ किसानों के भाग्य का फैसला करने के लिए आयोजित बैठक में किसानों का कोई भी प्रतिनिधि नहीं था। बैठक में डब्ल्यूटीओ निदेशक, व्यापारी व वाणिज्य मंत्रालय के पदाधिकारियों के साथ मिलकर कुछ व्यापारियों के हस्ताक्षर ले रहे हैं। यह किसानों के विरुद्ध षड्यंत्र की तैयारी है। इस संबंध में कई बार केंद्रीय वाणिज्य मंत्री कमलनाथ को ज्ञापन देने के साथ ही समस्याओं से अवगत कराया जा चुका है। प्रदर्शन का नेतृत्व यूनियन के प्रेस प्रभारी शमशेर राणा ने किया। चाणक्यपुरी थाना पुलिस ने करीब 150 किसानों को गिरफ्तार किया जिन्हें बाद में छोड़ दिया गया। श्री सिंह ने कहा कि 21 मार्च को यूनियन के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष चौधरी महेंद्र सिंह टिकैत जंतर-मंतर पर पंचायत करेंगे जिसमें विभिन्न प्रांतों के किसान भाग लेंगे। इधर, डब्ल्यूटीओ बैठक के दौरान ही यूथ फॉर जस्टिस के बैनर तले प्रदर्शन कर रहे तीन सौ लोगों को भी पुलिस ने हिरासत में लिया। हालांकि शाम में उन्हें भी छोड़ दिया गया। यूथ फॉर जस्टिस के हेमराज ने बताया कि सोमवार को मौर्या शेरेटन में डब्लूटीओ की गुपचुप तरीके से मीटिंग बुलाई गई थी जिसमें किसानों को दी जा रही सब्सिडी कम करने और बाहर से आने वाले अनाजों को ड्यूटी फ्री करने पर चर्चा हो रही थी। इसी के विरोध में कई संगठनों ने मिलकर प्रदर्शन का निर्णय लिया था।[Monday, March 12, 2007 10:59:07 PM (IST) ]

Yavatmal (Maharashtra), March 9 (IANS) Noise of official compassion notwithstanding, nine debt-ridden farmers ended their lives in Maharashtra's Vidarbha region on a single day Thursday.
Meanwhile, top officers of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) arrived to ascertain claims and counter-claims on the suicides as 28 farmers took their lives in the first nine days of this month.
Among the nine distressed farmers was 27-year-old Shravan Chicholkar of village Kopa Mandavi of this district, who left behind his 23-year-old widow and a four-month-old child. Vithoba Thakre of Salod and Bandu Rathod of Tandoli are the two other young farmers from this suicide-prone district who ended their lives the same day by consuming poison.
Five other farmers who committed suicide also hailed from western Vidarbha - three from Buldana and one each from Washim and Amravati district. One farmer who killed himself was from the paddy growing Gondia district of eastern Vidarbha, Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti chief Kishor Tiwari said.
The nine suicides come on the heels of seven tragedies occurring in the preceding two days. With the 12 farmers who committed suicide in the first six days of March, the month's suicide toll till date stands at 28. The region's toll in the first two months of 2007 is 70 and 88 respectively.
The suicides took place at a time when top IB officers dashed to the state secretariat in Mumbai and then to the distressed region at the behest of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) for a first hand investigation into the matter.
The officers' visit was occasioned by an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court on behalf of the state government, which stated that funds committed by the central government as a part of the prime minister's relief package were not forthcoming.
Reportedly queried by the PMO about the affidavit, Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh apologised for the statement therein and blamed the bureaucrats for its 'wrong wording'.

As I gaze into the eyes of my brothers and sisters

Knowing that we are all in this together

Knowing that the bonds of solidarity will connect us forever.
One campus at a time

One city at a time
