Sarkar humse darti hain, Police ko aage karti hain; Join in Solidarity with us in Kaithal today
The Haryana government in brazen act of collusion with Maruti management has let loose repression on us workers when we are demanding our legitimate rights. Around 150 of our fellow workers have been taken into custody at 11.30pm last night in Kaithal police station to prevent our call for Dharna and Gherao scheduled for today 19 May 2013. The number of those arrested has gone up since last night, as police continue to pick up workers and supporters from our homes, villages and streets.
A state of curfew with Sec 144 clamped down on the entire town of Kaithal is on. As workers and supporters from across Haryana and other places are pouring in from the morning, CID and thousands of police are stationed in the Bus Station, Railway station and in the entire town and nearby villages and trying to stop their entry with barricades and tear gas, water cannons.
We have decided to go ahead with the program. Thousands of people who are coming in solidarity will go ahead with the protest, and will sit on the road wherever they are stopped. We will try to march to the Industries Minister’s residence with our demands. We appeal to all to join our protest and organize solidarity actions against the Haryana government and Maruti management.
