Voice for Democracy and Human Rights

Following the arrest of Chhatrdhar Mahato, police have arrested other activists for their alleged "Maoist" link. They are booked under UAPA. Several intellectuals, human rights organizations and other mass organization have protested the way the government terrorizes the activists in order to restrain them from involving any political activity and people's struggle. Thousands of people belonged to several mass organizations and noted intellectuals organized a rally on 8 October from College Street  to Metro Channel, Kolkata. Today (10 Otober) intellectuals, writers and artists again organized a rally that enjoyed huge mass participation. Gradually the voice against fascist atmosphere is becoming louder.
