Committee for the Defrense and Release of GN Saibaba & Delhi University Teachers Association
The Committee for the Defence and Release of Dr. GN Saibaba with Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) held a united protest in association with more than 40 organisations from all over Delhi and other states condemning the re-arrest of Dr. GN Saibaba and the charge of contempt of court on Arundhati Roy.
Dr. G N Saibaba, Delhi University Professor, who has been in incarceration since 9th May, 2014 has commenced an indefinite hunger strike from 11-04-2015 demanding proper medical treatment and food, both of which are being denied to him by the authorities of the Nagpur Central Prison.
Dr G N Saibaba, who was recently abducted from Delhi by the Maharashtra police and charged under the UA(P)A, has just been denied bail by the Gadchiroli Sessions court.
G.N. Saibaba is an outstanding and widely recognised figure of India’s various movements against global capitalist rule and its Indian representatives. He has been playing an integrative role of struggles ranging from Kashmir to Tamil Nadu and Nagaland, for the rights of different oppressed groups like the indigenous population (Adivasis), the Dalits (Untouchables) or the Muslims and the social rebellion against the impact of neo-liberalism. He holds contacts across the world and has been organising support for international anti-imperialist struggles like the Palestinian one or the Iraqi resistance.

Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF), India
We condemn the Indian government in the strongest possible terms for hanging Mohammad Afzal Guru at Tihar Jail in a dastardly manner. The process of his arrest, trial, his sentencing by the lower court and the upholding of the death sentence by the Supreme Court, the rejection of his petition to the president, denial of his right to a judicial review of this rejection, and finally his secret hanging – all point towards the farcical nature of Indian judiciary and the complicity of the entire present political system in persecuting political dissidents.
Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF)
Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF) has been banned by the Andhra Pradesh government on 9 August 2012 through Government Order No.430 under Andhra Pradesh Public Security Act 1992. This comes as the latest of the anti-people repressive measures that the Andhra Pradesh government have persistently adopted to over the last few decades to crush democratic voices and peoples’ movements under the garb of fighting Maoism. This comes as another glaring example of the hollowness of Indian government’s claim as ‘largest democracy of the world’.
