One lakh emails to go out to President; farmers’ ‘Solidarity Day’ today

PROTESTING AGAINST the Centre for suspending freight trains in Punjab, the All Indian Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) has announced it will observe ‘Solidarity Day’ on Thursday against the “repression of Punjab peasantry”. The decision was made by farmer unions after an online meeting of the AIKSCC Wednesday evening. “One lakh emails will be sent to the President, demanding immediate resumption of goods trains.

These emails will be sent by people from all walks of lives including farmers, from across the country. AIKSCC has strongly protested against the vindictive step of the Modi government of not allowing operations of goods trains and thus preventing supply of fertilisers, coal and other essential goods to blackmail people of Punjab and unleash repression on the peasant struggle in Punjab," said V M Singh, convener of AIKSCC, while talking with farmer union heads. “All peasants, agriculture worker organisations across the country have been asked to observe November 12 as ‘Solidarity Day’ and send one lakh emails to extend support to Punjab so as to run trains immediately.
