Hul Kranti Diwas

The pandemic second wave set back to the momentum building in rest of India against the Farm Laws. Before the slowdown in April, the Samyukth Kisan Morcha leaders had been able to contact farmers in Bengal, Bihar, Odisha, Andhra, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh. Southern states Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala had expressed solidarity.

Now that the pandemic peak is behind us, this unity is again being reinforced. One of the most important and threatened people of India are its tribal populations. SKM has decided to observe ‘Hul Kranti Diwas’ on 30 June at all borders. Members from tribal areas will be invited at dharna sites on that day.

SKM has also extended its full support to the tribal of village Silger on the border of Sukama and Bijapur districts, who are fighting against government’s decision to establish a CRPF camp in the area. This land comes under the 5th Schedule of the Constitution and the land is being taken over without any referral/decision of the Gram Sabhas.

SKM has condemned the police firing on protesting tribal on May 17 in which 3 tribal died on the spot, one pregnant lady tribal died later; 18 were injured and 10 are missing.

Meanwhile, more incidents of resistance keep coming up in Haryana and Panjab. While in Haryana the farmers protest BJP and ally JJP, in Panjab farmers are gheraoing Congress and demanding accountability. This rise of political consciousness is the result of the farmers protest. It will only intensify from here on. The farmers’ moves in Uttar Pradesh will make the government lose its sleep.
