Self Respect - Do you have in you?

Part - I

Water privatisation is one of the prime agenda of WB(World Bank) for this century. And there are Mass protest everywhere. latin america, south east asia, canada etc.

If africa, latin america and other countries are experimental laboroteries for Imperialists then India is the final implimentation ground.

There they have learnt lots of (tons of) bloody bitter lessons.

In american continent (both north and south america) coke is known as Killer coke.

it has killed eigth labour union leaders in colombia so for and performed unconutable attrocities on those people.This with the help of colombian Para military force.
This is not a story. this even the colombian high court has accepted.
In india also it has killed the gram panchayt leader Kamsan(Gangaikondan) four months ago.

As the atrocities of Coke become known to everybody students in USA decided to stop consuming coke.

Look at the News bits below

hope you are aware of the campaign against coke in Tamil nadu, Gangaikondan by PALA got widespread appreciation, and mass support. and
the movement has unmasked the real face of state, police and judicial body which serves the need of imperialism. Now it is in its Third Phase.

Part - II
Those foreign guys have self respect which is essential difference between human from animal.

I believe we also have the sense of (for somebody it is hint of) self respect. if anybody insult our mother we would kill them. India is our mother. But She is being insulted and sexually harrased by our old masters and new masters. And we are not bothering.....

don't bother about our mother being raped.....We have our daily Food (shit..). (Eat Shit...Drink Coke..)

It is time to prove those MNCs and imperialists that nobody can get their breath in this country
if they insult our Soverignity, harras our Self Reliance, destroy our Culture, and Economy.

We have to punish them that they never think again of india as their Colony.

That is what the lesson latin american brothers and sisters has given to them.

But those countries are not powerfull enough to kick on the Soft belly of Imperialism.

But we are.....We are capable of....we are very very powerfull.

If we hit them that will be the dead blow to them.

Coke is a Symbol of recolonization. Fight against coke is fight
against Imperialism. That is Freedom Struggle.

Statuary Warning
If anybody who drinks coke or any foreign cool drinks he is eating his own shit. There are even daboo words linking his mother and him but this is not the platform to use those words.

U. of Michigan Becomes 10th College to Join Boycott of Coke By MELANIE WARNER

When students at the University of Michigan return to campus next week after the holiday break, they will find the Coke machines and fountain dispensers empty.
The university, which has 50,000 students on three campuses, on Thursday became the 10th college to stop selling Coca-Cola products because of concerns arising from accusations about the company's treatment of workers in bottling plants in Colombia and environmental problems in India.
A Coke spokeswoman, Kari Bjorhus, said yesterday in a statement that the company hoped the Michigan decision was temporary.
She said Coca-Cola was looking at ways to conduct an independent third-party study of the situation in Colombia.
Labor activists have said that Coca-Cola, through its Latin American bottlers, has been complicit in the deaths of eight union leaders and in continued harassment of unionized employees.
In India, a different group of activists have accused Coke of polluting the soil and groundwater near several bottling plants, of severely reducing groundwater levels in drought-prone areas and of failing to install adequate filtration systems that would remove pesticides from the water used to make its products.
The activists, led by two groups, Corporate Accountability International and the Campaign to Stop Killer Coke, have found a sympathetic ear on college campuses.
Within the last year, New York University, Rutgers University in New Jersey and Santa Clara University in California, among others, have stopped selling Coke products, which include Sprite, Dasani water, Minute Maid juice and Powerade sports drinks.
Coke has denied all of the accusations. In April, the company announced the findings of a report by CSCC, a consulting firm in Los Angeles. The report, which was paid for by Coke, addressed current conditions, not the deaths, which occurred from 1989 to 2002. It found no violations or abuses of labor or human rights in Coke's bottling plants in Colombia.
Unsatisfied, the University of Michigan and five universities that still sell Coke products have called for an independent investigation of both the Colombia and India situations.
The University of Michigan had set today as a deadline for Coke to select an auditor and agree on the terms of the investigation. But talks between the company and the university broke down.
Coke says the accusations about India are groundless, also. It says that its use of water in India has become more efficient and that it has begun harvesting rainwater to help return it to underground sources.
In the fiscal year 2005, the University of Michigan had 13 contracts for selling Coca-Cola products, totaling $1.4 million. The university did not have an exclusive contract with Coke and it will continue to sell beverages from other companies.

Coke loses fizz at US varsity over India plant

By Ela Dutt, New York: A US varsity has suspended sale of Coca Cola on it campus after students launched a year-long campaign against the soft drinks company's practices in India and Colombia.
Students at the University of Michigan are happy that their administration has suspended the sale of Coca Cola products starting Jan 1.
The decision suspends 13 contracts with Coca Cola worth $1.4 million annually because the company has not agreed to protocols for a third-party review of labour practices in Colombia and has not developed protocols for reviewing environmental concerns in India.
"It was a definite victory in that the university has realised that Coca Cola is not acting on good faith and is not on deadline and not really committed," Jory Hearst, an activist in the campaign at the university, told IANS.
"We are concerned, however, with the language of the university that it is 'temporarily suspended' but we kind of expected that.
"So it is going to be really important for the campaign to continue and to continue pressure to make sure the actions that Coca Cola takes are truly acknowledging the issues and not using public relations as they have in the past four years. They deny as much as they can," Hearst maintained.
But the soft drinks behemoth hopes it can salvage its concerns in India and its contracts in the US. It is accused of depleting ground water reserves at its plant in Plachimada in the south Indian state of Kerala.
On Dec 29, 2004, after a year-long campaign by the Students Organizing for Labor and Economic Equality lodged a formal complaint about Coca Cola's business practices in India and Colombia, the university sent a letter to Coca Cola suspending sales on campus starting Jan 1.
The complaint alleged that Coke's bottling plants in these countries violated various provisions of the Vendor Code of Conduct of the University by fostering environmental practices in India that have depleted the groundwater and led to products with unacceptably high levels of pesticides.
Nine other universities in the US have suspended Coca Cola sales according to media reports. New York University, the largest private university in the country, banned Coca Cola products from Dec 8 last year.
Others that have done the same are Rutgers University in New Jersey, Santa Clara University in California, Salem State College in Massachusetts and the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.
Coca Cola spokesperson Kari Bjorhus told IANS the company was pleased that the University of Michigan has indicated its belief that the company is "sincere in its desire to ensure fair labour practices and a safe working environment in Colombia, and sustainable environmental practices in India".
"The University of Michigan Dispute Review Board has made this decision based on our inability to reach an agreement for another third-party assessment before the deadline they had initially set.

If the truth is like this, Then it becomes that those who outcry about islam terrorism as the prime problem of India are the real axis of evil - helping the global terrorists.

A `holiday' that fishermen in Dakshina Kannada can do without

The fishing season appears to be coming to an end in the district

MANGALORE: The fishing season, which generally gets over in Dakshina Kannada district in June, at least officially, appears to be already coming to an end.

Fifty per cent of fishing vessels are not being taken out to sea because of dwindling volumes of catch.

There are about 1,200 vessels, including country crafts, used by fishermen, but only 600 of them are being used.

They return with a catch that barely helps meet expenses on diesel and crew wages.

Loknath Bolar, a leader of fishermen, claims there are times when fishermen come back empty-handed.

The underutilisation of subsidised diesel provided for the season is one indication that it has been a poor fishing season in the district.

Each year, the Government provides 55,000 kilolitres of subsidised diesel for the State, and 48 per cent is consumed in Dakshina Kannada, Mr. Bolar says. Consumption of diesel has come down by 25 percent because fewer fishermen are venturing out into the sea.

In a normal fishing season, which starts in September, the quota is used up by February-end.

Experts say marine resources have been overexploited. Others point to what they call irrational and unsustainable methods of fishing in the deep sea by bull trawlers from other countries. Academics at the fisheries college are of the view that fishing during the breeding season has contributed to the "fish famine".

Trawlers of foreign origin are mainly responsible, according to experts.

At least 90 trawlers and about 50 industrial fishing vessels remain throughout the season and during the monsoon in the Indian Exclusive Economic Zone.

Several foreign fishing companies, each with fleets of bull trawlers that have onboard fish processing and canning facilities, have been permitted.

According to general secretary of the Karnataka Fishermen Action Committee Vasudeva Boloor, many types of fish, such as pomfret, jumbo prawns, ribbonfish and cuttlefish, have become rare.

Mackerel, sardines and various types of perches sustain fisheries in this part of the coast, though they only fetch low prices.

Fishermen need a good catch of exotic fish varieties to increase their income, Mr. Boloor says.

However, figures given by the Department of Fisheries speak of near-normal volumes of the catch.

The value of the catch this season (till February 2006) is worth Rs. 257.53 crores (76,844 tonnes) compared with Rs. 280.67 crores (85,085 tonnes) in the 2004-2005 season, according to the department.

Corporate lesson - Secret of dreaming between Turmoil


A little mouse living on a farm was looking through a crack in the wall one day and saw the farmer and his wife opening a package. The mouse was intrigued by what food the package may contain. He was aghast to discover that it was a mouse trap. The mouse ran to the farmyard warning everyone "There is a mouse trap in the house, there is a mouse trap in the house."

The chicken raised his head and said "Mr. Mouse, I can tell you this trap is a grave concern to you, but it has no consequence to me and I cannot be bothered with it." The mouse turned to the pig "I am so very sorry Mr. Mouse, but the trap is no concern of mine either."

The mouse then turned to the bull, "Sounds like you have a problem Mr. Muse, but not one that concerns me." The mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected that no one would help him or was concerned about his dilemma. He knew he had to face the trap on his own.

That night the sound of a trap catching its prey was heard throughout the house. The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness she could not see that it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.

The snake bit the farmer's wife. The wife caught a bad fever and the farmer knew the best way to treat a fever was with chicken soup. The farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard to get the soup's main ingredient.

The wife got sicker and friends and neighbors came by to take turns sitting with her round the clock. The farmer knew he had to feed them, so he butchered the pig. The farmer wife did not get better, in fact she died and so many friends and family came to her funeral that the farmer had to slaughter the bull to feed all of them.

MORAL OF THE STORY: The next time we hear that one of our teammates is facing a problem and think it does not concern or affect us, let us remember that when anyone of us is in trouble, we are all at risk.

==> ==>
Do we learn lessons....While we see the entire country is in trouble, and even we perceive our own industry is causing hardship to us, and no where we see any good future for Us and as well for our children, we say my today' bread is perfect. We still hope that we.. we alone will lead a good life while the entire society is declining. I don't know how it is possible. Let you tell me that secret so that I can learn.

Parliament MP are for Sale - Summer Offers - Hurry Up!

I recently read one article. It goes like by comparing Democratic system with Pretty, Young, Gorgeous, Little nineteen plus Dame (girl).

In the article he says that in order to have relationship with that girl who is sitting in the same room where you are sitting, You have to flirt with her. Otherwise chumma if you are looking at her then she won't bother about and there will not be any relationships at all.

The writer says - Like this in order to exploit the full potential of the democracy one needs to participate in that. He claims in India almost 80 % of people not even aware of what is called democracy. So India is not a great democracy- he says. It is a Name shake democracy - He says. The solution he says is a comedy which would yield in to tragedy if applied practically. That’s apart. and he didn't look in to the inherent flaws in our system.

And very important is that he forgets the history that India was a colony(half colony now) and here never happened a capitalist revolution and still 80 percentage of resources are controlled by rural feudalistic authoritarians.

And the Indian freedom itself is nothing but transforming power from colonial master to his loyal representative. Have the date 1947 august 15 made any difference to the 80% of rural mass(at that time) toiling in the village under the oppression of feudal lords. They are suffering the same from their land lord before and after freedom.

While the big mass was hatching its struggle against it's real two enemies - colonial oppression and their allies- the feudalistic oppression(Telungana, etal) the british realizing this made compromise and gave the indian authority to the feudalistic forces. British ensured their trade won't affect...:-))

The answer lies in this historical analysis - why it is that indians are not participating in democracy(voting is become a ritual it doesn't really represents anything of a common people). Because vast majority of people never tasted what is democracy. Though they vote mechanically. Still they either toiling in Darmapuri, Danjavur etc or toiling in Construction sites or Hotels in Chennai, Bangalore etc.....They never ever organized. And they never ever raised their voice against atrocities against them. Except very few stray things.

Then what is our parliament, election.....? As it is said they are name sake only. That is why now a days our representatives(not really) don't like to conceal their decision taken under the pressures from USA, etc(whom they are actually representing). That is why now a days Our representatives take decision with out even having any debate in the namesake parliament (the recent changes (VAT, Patent, Labour reform, Service Tax, Retail FDI etc, military pact, Iran, Gas- manisankar iyer)).

Thus until there is a real change in Indian economic system that release the huge resource (primarily human resource) from the hands of feudalism there will not be any real democracy.
The very first thing that requires in India like country is a capitalist’s revolution. Spread the wing of capitalism to rural..... One would say that is what happening now in India...For those people I request to read the capitalist revolutions and evolutions happened in Europe and USA and compare with what is now happening in India. Then they would really understand what is the meaning of capitalism.

The article attached is in Tamil. Which is written when our MPs caught with red hand while accepting bribe from a News channel. This article analyses why it happens and gives some good perception in to the problem. Please read.....It is really very very good.
