NAPM announces National Bhu Adikar Jan Vikas Yatra
Support and solidarity kept soaring for the Narmada valley on the 14th day of the Jeevan Adhikar Satyagraha, a mass action by the Sardar Sarovar dam-affected oustees, demanding stoppage of installation of dam gates, until rehabilitation of the 2.5 lakh oustees and a comprehensive review of the costs and benefits of the Project.

Adding strength to the demand of the oustees was the voice and vision of numerous senior representatives of people's movements and social organizations across the country who committed to carry the message from the valley to the four corners of the country and the world outside and shake the power centres in Delhi, Bhopal, Mumbai and other places.

They said that the SSP Scam is much bigger than the Vyapam scam in many respects and the Modi-Shivraj nexus would be fully exposed by them in each state and city. The participants decided to hold state level meetings, actions, write thousands of letters to the authorities and the Supreme Court as well, hold press conferences, post card campaign, supportive jal satyagrahs demanding justice for the people and a dialogue with the Satyagrahis.

Numerous Convenors of the National Alliance of People's Movements who were also present at the Satyagraha, as part of the Convention on Land, Livelihood and Housing Rights, announced that the NAPM would embark on a month-long yatra in November, 2015 and would appeal to all like-minded networks and movements across the country to challenge the current paradigm of corporate loot, anti-people development and communalism and link every struggle.

A three day "Chintan Shibar" from 17th to 19th Oct, 2015 has also been planned to reflect on the challenges facing our democracy today and plan effective strategies to combat the same.

A joint mass action by thousands of people from the valley and other supportive organizations would be held on September 28, marking the Harsud Day.
