Statement in Solidarity with All India General Strike #StrikeHard

 

In light of the recent events, the Central Trade Unions and Federations and Workers all over

India has announced a nationwide strike. During this pandemic crisis, we have seen how the

BJP led central government has put on attacks against the migrant workers and the farmers.

The Farmer Bill 2020 and the draconian measures against the workers are just tip of the

iceberg of the privatisation of public sectors.

The Education system of this nation, has also faced the emerging trends of privatisation and

we have seen its impact on students from underprivileged backgrounds.

Presidency University Students’ Union extends it’s solidarity for the General Strike and

supports the demand of the reformation of Labour Law 2020, and the rejection of Farmer Bill

2020 and Essential Commodities Act 2020. These bills and the constant attack on students

and the privatisation of schools and colleges (National Education Policy 2020) are the

example of the rising fascist forces. To fight against this anti-farmer, anti-worker and anti-

student regime, we should stand unitedly against the undemocratic and communal

government.

The Presidency University Students’ Union calls upon all the students, teachers, researchers

around the nation to join this ongoing protest against the Central Government and its barbaric

atrocities this 26th November.
