25th Nov to 10th Dec, 2021

Dear Saathis,

We join the nation in saluting the farmers’ movement, which has brought the Central Government to its knees, forcing it to retreat on the three Farm Laws, with the Prime Minister assuring a repeal in the Parliament soon.

This is indeed a moment of unprecedented victory, on the long path of resistance against the fascist and pro-corporate forces. Everyone, including the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, is well-aware of the diabolical electoral and other designs of this regime, and therefore SKM has clearly put forth all its outstanding demands including actual repeal of the 3 laws, legal guarantee of MSP for all crops, accountability for the 700 deaths / killings of farmers, withdrawal of Electricity Amendment Bill and closure of cases foisted on farmers.

The current momentum calls for intensification of our movements, seeking ‘azadi’ on various fronts, be it from the anti-labour laws and Codes, NRC-CAA-NPR, the New Education Policy, proposed amendments to Forest Conservation Act, Marine Fisheries Bill, UAPA and other draconian laws, abrogation of Art 370 and many more such regressive legislations / policies, which are attacks on our constitutional rights and guarantees. Through a slew of such anti-people laws, persecution of minorities, especially Muslims, repression on democratic rights activists, privatization of public utilities, financial frauds, soaring fuel prices and destruction of livelihoods of millions of people, the Govt. has clearly failed to guarantee the constitutional rights & well-being of the majority of the citizens of this country. Despite the PM’s grandiose at COP-26, the already precarious working class and marginalized sections are bound to suffer further due to climate-crisis, as we are already witnessing.

It is, therefore, imperative for us as movements and citizens to question the Govt. on all these matters, extend solidarity to each other’s struggles and organize effectively in our areas. _The farmers’ struggle proves yet again that with the combined spirit of civil disobedience of Gandhi, fiery resistance of Bhagat Singh and visionary constitutionalism of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, we can resist capitalist and fascist forces, even today. Let us draw inspiration from these and other freedom fighters as well as the martyrs of the Kisan Andolan and carry forward their revolutionary dreams for a truly free India._

The Jan Azadi Campaign initiated by NAPM since 9th August, is yet another effort in this direction. The Campaign has so far been undertaken in two phases, in different parts of the country. Read more at the link here:
