Hands off Lalgarh!

Stop State Terror – Scrap the SEZs

Picket of the Indian High Commission The Aldwych, London WC1

Friday 24 July 2009, 3.30pm – 5.30pm

In a test case establishing the fact that its model of neoliberal ‘development’ will be enforced through unrestrained violence the Indian central government is carrying out a massive paramilitary campaign in Lalgarh and surrounding areas in the adivasi (aboriginal) -dominated western region of West Bengal state. They are attempting to mercilessly crush an uprising against police atrocities and the seizure of land for the establishment of a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) by Jindal Steel Works, an Indian multinational. Join the picket in support of the demands of the people of Lalgarh!

· Unconditional apology from the superintendent of police and the police personnelinvolved in the operations for the indiscriminate arrests, torture, rapes and illegal detentions.

· Compensation for those injured and for the families of those murdered in the attacks.

· All negotiations to be held in public and not behind closed doors.
