Kolkata – Meeting on anti-POSCO movement, 26th March

March 25, 2010

The All-India Coordination of Movements against SEZs, Displacement and Land-grab, an initiative to coordinate between the various movements against SEZs and corporate land grabbing in various parts of the country, invites you to a meeting in solidarity with the anti-POSCO resistance struggle being waged by thirty thousand farmers and fisherfolk in Jagatsinhpur District in Orissa for the past five years. The people of the area are on an indefinite dharna since last January in order to resist the attempts by the Orissa government to take over their land and resources.

The meeting will be held on 26th March, from 6.00 pm at the University Institute Hall annexe, Kolkata. The main speaker is Prashant Paikray, the spokesperson of the POSCO Pratirodh Sangram Samiti that is spearheading this movement. Please participate in this meeting and express your solidarity and support for the struggle of the people who are valiantly resisting the onslaught of global capital and the state.

Thank you.
