CONGRATULATIONS FOR THE VICTORY OF HISTORIC FARMERS’ STRUGGLE BY JOINT PLATFORM OF CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS AND INDEPENDENT SECTORAL FEDERATIONS/ASSOCIATIONS

 

The joint platform of CTUs, Independent Sectoral Federations/Associations, whole heartedly congratulate Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) for steering the Farmers Agitation to a successful conclusion and welcome their decision to suspend the year-long agitation at the borders of Delhi, the capital of India.

The working class movement shares fully their jubilation and pride for success, which arises from the proactive involvement of the working class in consistent and continuous solidarity actions throughout the country with the historic farmers’ struggle.

We pay homage to those 715 martyrs who laid down their lives with a message for generations to come, never to bend before any tyrannical force.

It is in keeping with the maturity shown by the SKM all along that even the celebrations, which are but natural when victory is snatched from the jaws of an all powerful adversary-the pro-corporate Central Government-after such arduous struggle, have been postponed by a day, when the Nation is mourning the tragic death of Defence-force chief and his colleagues owing to helicopter-crash in Tamilnadu.

It is in keeping with the alertness shown by the SKM all along that they have decided only to "suspend" the present phase of agitation and to keep a close watch whether the government keeps the promises made.

We, the trade unions, will stand vigil along with the SKM, while carrying on the agitation for the rights of the toiling people, including the forthcoming all India strike on 23-24 February, 2022 against the complete sell out of our national wealth and the atrocious onslaught on the rights and cruelest exploitation of the working people being carried out by the corporate-servile Govt. at the centre.

As for the slogans for the near future, we will whole heartedly take part in "Mission UP" "Mission Uttarakhand" as an integral part of our Mission India programme to “Save the People, Save the Nation”

We consider Workers-Peasants Unity as the priceless achievement of this epic struggle.
