Sangharsh Yatra against Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor

National Alliance for People's Movements (NAPM) to launch protest against the proposed Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor from March 8 to 19. 
 
It is to protest the DMIC's indiscriminate acquisition of agricultural land, massive displacement, undermining the sovereignly of gram sabhas and colossal loss of life and livelihoods. The proposed corridor will be 1483 km long spanning across six states of UP, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra with end terminals in Dadri and Jawaharlal Nehru port near Mumbai. The corridor will have serious ramifications for environmental disaster and will impact 14 percent of the country's population.
 
The new Bill on land acquisition and resettlement and rehabilitation is being tailor made for this project, and it would be little suprise if this turns out to be the biggest disaster for the people in the coming years.

Projects have already started at many of the places and so have the resistance by people.

To bring all these struggles together, to reach out to people on the route, spread out information and to be with them in solidarity, we have undertaken this yatra from Mumbai to Delhi, ending in Delhi on March 23, Shahid Bhagat Singh's martyrdom day.

Join us in this yatra, come and be part of an effort to save precious natural resources for future generations, for a people friendly sustainable development planning and stand in solidarity with people struggling for a dignified living and assert their right to determine their path or development paradigm.

Hence, this yatra to link up, to reach out to farmers, peasants, workers, adivasis, dalits, petty traders and others across the six states that will be swept by the humongous DMIC. NAPM affiliated movements in each of the states have already been working on these issues for sometime now and it is time to link these all up and take the next step forward.
