State forces moved in to crush anti-POSCO struggle
Appeal to CWI sections, trade unions and trade unionists
Hundreds of armed police are invading Govindpur Village (the Centre of Anti -Posco struggle) after the Chief Minister of Odisha, Naveen Pattnaik, gave his consent for armed intervention. One police platoon has actually entered the forest area to break down the people’s beetle vines which provide them with their livelihood. The people of the movement against POSCO (the PPSS) have been peacefully protesting at the Govindpur village border against the forceful land acquisition on behalf of the Korea-based multinational, POSCO.
