Anna Hazare and Jan Lok Pal: The Sham of Imperialist led Development that Breeds on Corruption

Revolutionary Democratic Front Press Statement, 19 April 2011

Once again corruption has become the centre of debate. You name it and 'Shining India' has a story of corruption to say about any state policy-whether a mid-day meal scheme in the rural schools, to defence deals or to the mega-deals like the Spectrum scam. We were witness to the 4-day Spectacle of Anna Hazare, wowed by the well heeled middle class, accosted by the 'civil society' and every shade of the parliamentary political parties-from the right to the left-a 'rainbow coalition' hailing the 'historic Satyagraha' of the 'new Gandhi'.

PLEASE SIGN ONTO THIS "Statement from the Concerned Citizens of India on Kashmir"

We are deeply concerned at the recent media reports of possible cases of 'sedition' to be levelled against some of the speakers at the public convention on Kashmir held in New Delhi on 21 October 2010 titled "Azadi: The Only Way" organized by the Committee for the Release of Political Prisoners(CRPP) with sections of political forces fomenting jingoistic feelings. We are appalled to find how impatient sections of the Indian society have become, and how attempts are consistently being made to silence voices of dissent by the Indian government by branding such voice crying for justice as 'seditious'-a term the new Indian state borrowed from the days of the British raj.

CRPP: Condemn the fascist designs of the Indian government to silence voices of dissent!

Condemn strongly the move to put Arundhati Roy and
Syed Ali Shah Geelani under charges of sedition!

Ever since the historic convention in Delhi titled "Azadi: The Only Way" organised by the CRPP, the media is abuzz with reports of possible cases of 'sedition' against some of the main speakers in the convention. The names that are being cited keeps changing with the imagination of the concerned media houses. The hype has become so high that now rather than discussing the serious issues pertaining to the political aspirations of the people of Jammu & Kashmir that was deliberated by one and all in the convention the issue has got subverted into a conflated, convenient binary of that what is euphemistically called as 'seditious' or 'non-seditious'.
