JNUSU statement on the events of 143rd Academic council meeting and notice raj of the administration

In an extremely shameful manner, the JNU administration continuing its history of targeting the JNUSU office bearers and the students’ activists, issued an extremely abhorrent notice to the JNUSU President and Joint Secretary on late evening of 21st June 2017. The notice shockingly mentions “Mr. Mohit Pandey/Tabrez Hasan is here by suspended from participating in all Statutory Bodies and Committees of the University with immediate effect until the final outcome of the Proctorial Enquiry Committee.”
The JNUSU condemns, in the strongest term possible, sheer targeting of a student representatives by the JNU …

Charges against AISA activists in Garhwal for Anti-Liquor Protests

Since the day the Supreme Court ordered that liquor shops be shifted at least 500 metres away from highways, a state-wide anti-liquor movement has intensified in Uttarakhand. For a long time, women in Uttarakhand have been conducting a movement against state-encouraged alcoholism. However, instead from responding to the demands of women, the successive Congress and BJP governments in Uttarakhand, have only ensured that liquor shops are set up even in those remote areas where even water supply is yet to be properly ensured. Post the Supreme Court order, the anti-liquor …

Stand Against State-Military Atrocities on Students in Kashmir

End Impunity and Investigate Human Right Abuses and Killings by Armed Forces
As death, pain and suffering marks seasons in Kashmir, the summer has arrived with the news of more deaths and atrocities at the hands of military forces. On April 09, 2017, a mere 6.5% voters voted in the Srinagar by-poll. In the repoll at 38 booths on April 13, the vote percentage was even lower – just 2%. This shows that for Kashmir’s people, the movement of resistance that began in July last year has not ended. Armed forces …

Profiles South India as a racial ‘Other’
Indicates that India belongs to ‘We’ (Tarun Vijay &Co.) who condescend to ‘live with’ South Indians!
Tarun Vijay’s remark reflects RSS thinking. Remember Dinanath Batra’s textbooks with a preface by Narendra Modi, which are compulsory in Gujarat schools? Those textbooks:
Use the racist N-word to describe a Black American, saying “very strongly …

8 March 2017- International Women’s Day
Identifying the Foundations of Women’s Oppression, Charting the Course of Struggles for Liberation
8 March – International Women’s Day – was born in the struggles that women factory workers in their thousands waged against bondage a century ago. 
Women workers in garment and other factories in the USA in 1909 first observed ‘Women’s Day’ with huge demonstrations to demand labour laws (including the 8-hour working day) and the right to vote for women. In 1910, the Second International Conference of Working Women at Copenhagen accepted German socialist …
