Actions of information and solidarity on
"the dark side of India"
Actions for solidarity with the political prisoners in India took place in Thessaloniki, during the first days of September. The triggering event was the 84th Thessaloniki International EXPO annual event that the government and the business associations organize- where this year the honoring country was India. As a response to the official propaganda, the solidarity actions peaked with an event that the “Ektos ton tichon” ,(Out of the Walls) Publications organized on Friday, September 6, 2019. The subject was the current situation in India, the political prosecutions, the massacres of the native populations, the so called Operation Green Hunt, the abolition of Kashmir's autonomy and the whole process of fascistization that the Modi government and the far-right Hinduists are imposing upon the people. A video created by Amnesty International, about the prosecution of nine militants for the Bhima-Koregaon case was projected during the event. Many posters were hung, followed by slogans in solidarity with the political prisoners; many announcements and articles were published on the local and national press, with a special reference to the dire adventures of the disabled professor G.N. Saibaba. On every occasion the demands to set the professor free and to stop the prosecution and the fabricated accusations against him as well as those against nine militants of the Bhima-Koregaon case, were highlighted.
