Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Graham Peebles – Twenty years of corporate colonisation of the Indian countryside has fuelled conflict, forced-urbanisation and the breakdown of the democratic ideal. The fight for land is occurring in many parts of the world, as multi-national corporations look to expand their monopoly control on resources, production and supply. Whether in industrial sized farms in Sub-Saharan Africa, or mining in the heartland of India, the commercialization of rural regions proceeds apace, as does the murder and forced re-settlement of millions of people throughout the world. The indigenous people are the victims: their crime – that they happen to live on land rich in iron-ore, bauxite, uranium and tin, commodities that major mining corporations operating in India, are desperate to get their hands on. The government is supporting the corporate hunt for wealth. The PM has made clear the government’s duty to fully exploit the countries potential mineral wealth, fuel rapid industrialization and maximize the monthly GDP figures.
