The tyranny of Modi’s regime have brought untold miseries, deaths and uncertainties to the already languishing millions and millions of people in India. The ‘so called’ demonetisation of the 86% of the currency in use, has virtually brought the economy into a stand still, with more than 100 million people queuing up the banks and ATM’s everyday and more than 100 million working people particularly in the informal sectors losing their subsistence. This crude authoritarian gimmick of Modi has failed, it has failed the people and it failed hopelessly!
The following is a facebook post by Jagadish G Chandra from the New Socialist Alternative on the #OccupyRBI protest that was organized in Bangalore yesterday. It also features short videos with activists speaking about how the demonetization by the Modi govt has ended up hurting the working people. Jagadish & others activists were detained and later released by the police.
