descend on Chhattisgarh like vultures
Comrades what many of you don't know is that Salwa-Judum is right now being
carried out in those districts of Chhattisgarh that are considered to form
one of the largest unexploited diamond reserve's in the world.
Unconfirmed reports from my source's reveal that Economic Hit Men (EHM)
are swarming all over Raipur, the capital city of Chattisgarh demanding
their pound of flesh. They mainly represent DeBeer's and other diamond corporations.
It is extremely likely that by now our ruling classes would have already sold out
all the tribal land for a pittance and signed the death warrants justifying the
destruction of a dozen tribes,their way of life and the forceful capture of tribal lands..
Morever the diamond mafia headed by DeBeers plan's to start mining in
these same lands by as early as 2008 !
It is widely believed that the U.S offer of help to India
in the fight against the revolutionary Maoists in Chhattisgarh was
done at the behest of these diamond corporations.
Two visiting U.S. diplomats on May 26,2006 offered to help India train its police force to battle Maoist rebels and to help remove thousands of land mines planted by insurgents, said B.K.S. Ray, senior Chhattisgarh state official for home affairs. A U.S. Embassy spokesman denied the offer was made, saying U.S. officials merely discussed the issues. The diplomats also toured a police jungle warfare school in the Chhattisgarh town of Kanker.
There is more to Salwa Judum than what meet's the eye.
The Maoists are the only hope of the Tribals of Chhattisgarh.
The People's Liberation Guerilla Army is the last line of defense.
This will be a fight to the finish !

of mother earth and it's people by mining corporations .

It’s raining diamonds in Chhattisgarh

MAINPUR, Chhattisgarh: When the monsoon sweeps past a diamond-rich village in Chhattisgarh, poor people in the neighbouring areas sieve the soil for precious stones and sell them to middlemen for peanuts.
Members of the Bhunjia tribe toil hard in their fields to collect diamond particles and diamond-rich kimberlite pipes that wash down from Pailikhand village in Mainpur block, 145km southeast of Raipur in central India, unaware they are smuggling mineral deposits out of the state.
"We normally get some diamond stones or kimberlite rocks in our fields once a week but in the post-monsoon period we get really lucky," said Sukhia Bai, 58.
Another villager, Bhola Netam, said: "As soon as we get the diamonds, we start searching for merchants from Mumbai and Gujarat who come here often and pay Rs100 or more."
However, the state is planning to end the mass illegal mining of diamonds and their sale at a throwaway price.
Chief Minister Raman Singh said: "Normally after monsoons, diamond particles flood tribal farmlands in Mainpur and Devbhog areas. We have reports that rare diamonds are leaving the state through illegal mining by innocent locals.
"The government is working on a plan to set up purchase centres in the Devbhog and Mainpur areas and pay a deserving price to tribals who dig out the diamonds," Raman Singh said. – IANS
Chhattisgarh to be world's diamond bowl
Indo-Asian News Service
February 13 2005
Raipur - Chhattisgarh, one of India's youngest states, is set to become the worlds' diamond bowl before the decade is out and earn annual revenues of Rs.250 billion ($5.7 billion), Chief Minister Raman Singh says.
Singh said six companies, including De Beers, would start mining in the state by 2008.
"Let 2008 come, Chhattisgarh will dictate the diamond price in world markets and India will be the real diamond king," Singh told IANS in an interview.
"Six companies are carrying out aerial surveys and are closing in on areas with diamond-loaded kimberlite rock mines," Singh said.
"Chhattisgarh is known as the country's rice bowl. After three years it will become the diamond bowl. India will earn minimum Rs.250 billion revenue annually from diamond trading and it will grow by 40-50 percent a year," Singh added.
He said the Chhattisgarh Mineral Development Corp (CMDC) was establishing joint ventures with mining majors for scientific exploration, commercial exploitation and trading of diamonds.
"CMDC welcomes partnerships with national and international private sector mineral companies for translating the state's natural wealth more efficiently into prosperity for 38 percent of the population that lives below the poverty line," Singh stated.
Chhattisgarh, carved out of Madhya Pradesh in Nov 2000, is India's richest state in terms of mineral wealth with as many as 28 varieties of major minerals, including diamonds.
The world's best quality iron ore is found in the state's Bastar region and it has almost a fifth of the country's coal deposits.
Six companies are vying for a piece of the state's diamond pie with South Africa's De Beers and Diamond Prospecting Pvt. Ltd. carrying out surveys along the 3,975 sq km stretch in Kanker, Dhamtari, Durg and Rajnandgaon districts.
Rio Tinto has obtained an aerial survey license for parts of Jashpur, Mahasamund and Raipur districts. It says it has detected a kimberlite-rich belt in Raipur district.
Geo Mysore Services India has been prospecting in Kanker, Rajnandgaon and Jashpur regions, while Admas Prospecting Pvt. Ltd. has been eyeing the 3,000 sq km area in Raipur and Mahasamund districts.
The Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL), which has a major industrial complex in Raigarh district, has also submitted a proposal for a diamond survey in Jashpur.
