[Resist POSCO] More Leaders of the Anti-POSCO Movement still in Jail under False Charges – Join the Struggle

Though Abhai Sahoo, the leader of anti-POSCO movement, was released on bail, there are five more activists, including former CPI MLA Narayan Reddy, from the movement is still in jail with fabricated false charges. The police also fabricated cases against Prasanth Paikre, the second most leader of the movement, and he is now in underground. Odisha State Government and police are trying to suppress the movement by fabricating false cases against leaders and activists. Around 800 activists are facing 200 fabricated false cases in the anti-POSCO movement. The movement is struggling hard to mobilize finance and legal help for those who are in jail. Please call up on your friends to mobilize support for the anti-POSCO movement.

One of the comments from this post:

Thanks for asking if you can do something. All of us can do a lot within our limitations. Please see if you can involve yourself in either one or more of the following actions: 1. You can make more friends in this group and ask your friends to make more friends and supporters for the anti-POSCO struggle. 2. The struggle needs financial resources. If you can collect support, we can connect you to the right person in the movement. 3. The struggle needs support of various skills, in writing, medical care, posters, video documentation, legal aid, etc. Perhaps you may be able to contribute in any of these. 4. Support through solidarity meetings or protests needs to be organised in different parts of the country. This is also one of the areas of involvement. 5. Fact-finding teams can be sent to the anti-POSCO movement and then, such a report can be publicised. And I am sure, if all of us think together, many other ways of support can be thought of. Do respond.
