URGENT: Demolition at Golibar’s Ganesh Krupa Society on the 19th-20th of May

The real battle against corruption has always been fought in the slums and the villages where the corrupt had come to break our homes and steal our lands, and in our unions, where they’ve come to rob us of our work, our bread and our roses.

Tomorrow, on the 19th, and on 20th of May, at Golibar’s Ganesh Krupa Society, the MHADA and the police will come again to break our homes on behalf of Shivalik Ventures and Unitech group, even after the High Court told the police to chargesheet the builders for fraud.

Tomorrow, they will come to break our homes right before the monsoons, to try and drown our spirits, but we will not break.
Tomorrow, they will come to break our homes, even when one of the investors of the SRA project, Sanjay Chandra of Unitech Group is in Tihar jail for the 2G scam.

Tomorrow, they will come to break our homes, even when the assembly is rocked by the long list of scams committed by various builders and the Slum Rehabilitation Authority, regarding the notorious 3k rule.

So who does the police and the administration work for? We know the answer to that.

This, my fellow countrymen, is the real battle against corruption. Those of you who believed in the dream of Anna Hazare of a corruption-free India, need to know where the real battles are fought.
And you’re not fighting corruption if you haven’t been lathi-charged, beaten by the police, or put in jail. Because that only happens to you when the corrupt are afraid.

The real battle against corruption is not fought in the courtrooms where the judges are corrupt, where the law can be bended or with the ballot box where the politicians of every party can be sold in a supermarket called the parliament.

You’re not fighting corruption if you don’t know what corruption really is. It is also corruption to believe that slums are illegal, forests should be cut down, mountains should be mined and malls, highways or nuclear power plants should be built on the land of workers, farmers and fisherfolk.

The real battle against corruption is our solidarity with all struggling people of this nation. And we invite you to be a part of our struggle. And it is a struggle of women and children against lathis, of men against their own rage, of Muslims, Hindus and Christians against an enemy whose only religion is greed.

Please come to Khar East, Golibar, Mumbai, to stand with us.

Thank you.

    वस्त्यांना हटवून अपार्टमेंट बांधणे म्हणजे शहराचे सौंदर्यीकरण असे समीकरण सर्व भांडवलदारी सरकारांनी ठरवून टाकले आहे. रोज कुठेना कुठे पाडापाड दोत असते. हे सर्व तर थांबलेच पाहिजे पण आपण ह्या सर्व परिस्थितीचे विश्लेषणही केले पाहिजे. निवारा ही लोकांची मूलभूत गरज आहे म्हणूनच तो त्यांचा मूलभूत अधिकारही बनला पाहिजे. पण आज त्यांच्या ह्या अधिकाराचे हनन होत आहे. निवारा त्यांचा अधिकार राहिला नाही तर बाजारातील वस्तू बनली आहे. ह्या बाजारावर त्यांचा काडीचा देखील अधिकार नाही. ह्या बाजारावर अश्या लोकांचा ताबा आहे जे मुळातच त्याच्याकडे निवारा म्हणून बघतच नाहीत तर त्यांच्या अतिरिक्त काळ्या पैशांची गुंतवणूक म्हणून बघतात. आणि जमीन तर पूर्णपणे बिल्डर लॉबीच्या ताब्यात गेली आहे. अश्या परिस्थितीत निवाऱ्याचे सामाजिकीकरण आणि गरजेप्रमाणे वाटप झाले पाहिजे. आणि हे कोणत्या व्यवस्थेत होईल याचा विचार झाला पाहिजे.
