The KKE denounces the state repression against poor farmers and agricultural workers in Calcutta
The KKE denounces the barbaric attack of the forces of repression against mass organizations of poor farmers and agricultural workers in Calcutta, India, yesterday (22/5). The demonstrators, who had the support of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the West Bengal Left Front, demanded relief measures and marched to the headquarters of the state government in order to hand over a memorandum with their demands. The forces of repression unleashed an assault , attacking the demonstration and journalists, with the result that 900 demonstrators were injured and 100 of them are in a critical condition.
The government of the “Trinamul Congress” that expresses the interests of domestic and foreign monopolies in the state since 2011, when it entered office, has carried out savage repression against the communist and people’s movement, with hundreds of dead.
The KKE denounces the anti-people government of West Bengal and the repressive measures against the people’s movement. It once again expresses its solidarity with the militant farmers’ movement of India, with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and the Communist Party of India.
