Recent times has seen the naked assault of global capital on the rights and livelihood of the people at every level. The state and its various machineries are shamelessly acting at the behest of the various national and multinational companies at the cost of the people. Among the recent in the series of such acts by the state is the attempt by the Odisha government to forcibly evict people from their land for the proposed steel plant by POSCO. We are all witnessing how the state is actively facilitating the loot of the natural resources, trying to forcibly evict people from their land and trampling upon the democratic rights of the people who are organizing and resisting this onslaught on their lives and livelihood.

Thus we call upon you to participate and strengthen the people’s resistance by joining in this rally and demonstration. We urge you to come forward to protest against this current paradigm of “development” based on forcibly snatching the livelihood resources of people for companies and attempt by the state to suppress the resistance of the people.

We demand the Odisha Government to

* Immediately stop forceful land acquisition for POSCO

* Cancel all anti-people MoUs with companies

* Stop state oppression on people’s movements

* Release all political prisoners of Odissa
