India: Protest against killings in Nandigram

A protest march against the killing of Nandigram villagers was held on March 15, 2007 at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi. The villagers were protecting their farm land, fish ponds, homes and hearths in the district of East Midnapore, West Bengal against the Special Economic Zone (SEZ).
Since January 2007 the provincial government in West Bengal has become very aggressive to the people struggling for their land and natural resources, and careless of their lives and livelihood. Their dealing with the land question in Nandigram and Singur (TAT-FIAT) is extremely heinous. They have undergone a very wrong and destructive policy that is not expected from a progressive government.
