Waman Meshram calls for Bharat Band on June 25

 Rashtriya Parivatan Morcha

Bhahujan Kranti Morcha

Bharat Mukti Morcha 

 

Against the powers who are putting Unity and Integrity of Bharat in danger. 

 

On 25th June 2022 

 

Bharat Band 

 

Leadership: Hon. Waman Meshram

(National Convenor,  Bhahujan Kranti Morcha and Rashritya Parivartan Morcha (Social), New Delhi) 

 

APPEAL 

 

Collaborators,  the way Gyanvapi issue has been created by RSS and BJP, the way Mathura issue is raised after Ayodhya and the way- on the directions of BJP and RSS - Nupur Sharma spoke ill defamatory about Mohammad Paigambar is noted. 

 

Now 2022 is ongoing; and people at BJP and RSS feel that 2024 elections are not too far distant in time. In this context - to prepare for the elections - they are busy in creating polarization between Hindus and Muslims. In order to achieve this end they had commissioned Nupur Sharma for this task. Nupur Sharma gave her statements based on directions to her from the policy of the Party and the Organisation. This is the reason Party pretented as if action has been taken against her but BJP workers still seen supporting her. 

 

And the government too did not act against her in any way because of which several places witnessed riots. Because of the prevalence of riots India's unity and Integrity is in danger. 

 

Gandhi in order to unite Hindus transformed Freedom struggle with religios colour and used religious symbols through his life to gather common people. It is because of Gandhi Hindu-Muslim issue arose and intensified. This is the reason for partition of India. 

 

RSS and BJP carried this task after Gandhi again. Things are clear: if religious coloring task, religious polirisation task, Hindu-Muslim division accomplishing task continues then Nation's unity and Integrity will come under threat and danger of more partitions looms large. 

 

That's why it is very important that this trend is stopped. 

 

Brahmins finally got clear proof that they are foreigners. That's why if India's land gets further partitioned they have no regards. This is because brahmins are not natives (mulnivasis), are not Indians because DNA report has proved that they are foreigners. Their nationalism is only a  to save Brahmins and a ploy to end their foreignness. This nationalism that is meant to cover up their foreignness is inflamed through Hindu-Muslim division so that they can be polarized apart. 

 

This situation has threatened unity and Integrity of India. The way Hindu-Muslim polarization is going on India's unity and Integrity has come under risk. The way 57 nations commented indicate that the danger to India's unity and Integrity has proliferated further. And for those statements that foreign nations issued people from RSS and BJP are responsible and thy have pushed India's unity and Integrity towards peril. 

 

That's why in order to safeguard Nation's unity and Integrity there is a need to initiate huge action at the national level. And in order to enforce this social action, in order to support Nation's unity and Integrity, and those people who in the name of Hindu-Muslim have conspired to destroy Nation's unity and integrity; in opposition to them enforcing "Bharat Band" on 25th June 2022.

Do Not Compromise on Subsidies for Small Scale Fisheries

 On the Eve of the WTO Negotiations in Geneva


National Platform for Small Scale Fish Workers (NPSSFW) 

Implores the Government

Do Not Compromise on Subsidies for Small Scale Fisheries

Stop Subsidising Overfishing & Destructive Fishing


The biennial meeting of trade ministers from all 164 member nations is going to take place between June 12 and 15 in Geneva. The ministerial negotiations are to finalise the fate of fisheries subsidies provided by the governments of the world in their respective countries including in India.

NPSSFW strongly holds that subsidies provided to the small scale fisheries (SSF) are instrumental to protect sustainable fishing, large employment, equitable distribution of income, food security and nutritional status of our society. With more than 50% of work force being women the small scale fisheries sector has also to be supported for gender balance in employment. As such the provision of subsidies for SSF is non-negotiable.

NPSSFW further holds that subsidies for Small Scale Fisheries in the developing countries is beyond the mandate of WTO since these subsidies pertain more to management of fisheries than to international trade.

NPSSFW also holds that the traditional livelihood rights of small scale fisher people cannot be denied on the pretext of IUU (illegal, unregulated and unreported) fishing as the government has consistently failed to provide a legal, regulatory and reporting framework to protect the traditional and livelihood rights in small scale fisheries.

At the same time NPSSFW urges the government to stop all subsidies to the large scale mechanized fishing sector which is responsible for overfishing and destructive fishing. Subsidising trawlers and mechanized boats means subsidizing overfishing and destructive fishing. This should be stopped.

NPSSFW has been very upset to know that some persons have been handpicked by the government and taken to Geneva as non-government delegates from the fisheries sector. There has been a complete lack of transparency on the part of the government in this. The small scale fish workers’ organizations like NPSSFW were not even informed about the constitution of such a non-government delegation. The Government should refrain from such practices in future.

NPSSFW has already communicated its concerns and objections to Shri Piyush Goyel, Minister of Commerce & Industries, Government of India under Memo No. NPSSFW/Conv/19/22  dt.June 11, 2022.
