Joint Protest Rally Against Land Acquisition Ordinance and Insurance Ordinance
The Socialist Party (India), Lal Nishan Party (Leninist), the All India Insurance Employees Association (Pune unit) and Lokayat have decided to organise a joint protest rally against the recent ordinances, especially the Land Acquisition Ordinance and the Insurance Ordinance, promulgated by the Modi government that reveal completely its anti-people and undemocratic agenda. While thus implementing policies that favour naked profiteering and transfer of public resources of our country to foreign and Indian corporate houses, at the same time it has also launched a brutal offensive to further reduce the already low subsidies given to the people, including education and health subsidies.
We invite you all to join us in this rally and make it a joint protest of all progressive organisations. Do let us know if you would like to participate. If yes, then do reply back or sms me, and we shall include the name of your organisation in the press release and the pamphlet.
We talked amongst each other and decided not to call a joint meeting of all progressive organisations before finalising the program as that would delay the whole plan of taking out the rally, as it is, the proposed date is a bit late. We hope you do not mind us finalising the date amongst a few of us and then informing all of you.
We have also talked to Justice Kolse Patil, Anant Phadke and Abhay Shukla regarding this plan, and they have all expressed their support. This email is being sent out with their approval too.
The proposed date and time for the protest rally are as below:
Date: January 10, Saturday
Time: 5.30 pm: Assembly at Senapati Bapat Putla, Alka Talkies Chowk, and we then March from there to Tilak Putla, Mahatma Phule Mandai. We should reach Phule Mandai at 7 pm.
7 - 8 pm: Public Meeting at Tilak Putla, Phule Mandai.
