Kolkata Public Meeting by Himanshu Kumar, organised by Ekhan Bisangbad

March 7, 2010

Gandhian social activist Himanshu Kumar will speak at a public meeting organized by Ekhan Bisangbad on 9th March 2010 in Kolkata to share his personal experience of the ongoing “operation green hunt” ostensibly to root out left wing extremists from the guts of the vast forests and lands of at least four states of India that had been home to millions of indigenous people since time immemorial.

Himanshu Kumar is the director of Vanvasi Chetna Ashram, an organization that worked among the tribal masses of Dantewada, Chhatisgarh for the last seventeen years but which exists no more since October 2009 as it was razed to the ground by the security forces deployed by the govt. of CG and the Central govt.

The meeting will be held at the University Institute Hall (College Square) at 5.00 pm sharp.

We ardently seek your presence at the meeting.
