In light of the cruelty of the Modi Govt towards Indian Women Wrestlers which compelled them to go to Haridwar to immerse their medals in river Ganga (and their return from there after being urged to wait for five more days for the Govt to act), SKM held an urgent meeting of its Extended Coordination Committee early this morning. The Morcha took note of the Government’s apathy towards the wrestlers protesting against sexual harassment, and its attempt to protect the BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha gave call for nationwide agitation on 1st June and 5th June. Today there were protests all over India and in many places protesters submitted memorandums to the DMs.

There were protests and memorandum submissions in support of women wrestlers in more than 70 places in 20 different districts of karnataka on the call given by Samyuktha Horata Karnataka. This was in turn in response to national call by Samyuktha Kisan Morcha.

A delegation of SKM will visit the wrestlers and discuss developing mutually coordinated plans of action. The wrestlers restarting their sit-in protest at New Delhi will also be ensured by interacting with Delhi Police. SKM delegates will discuss with the wrestlers about convening a meeting of platforms of workers, women, youth, students and other sections of society on 8th June 2023 at New Delhi.

SKM will convene a meeting of its General Body on 7th June 2023 at New Delhi.

The Morcha will continue to extend active support to the wrestlers in coordination with other platforms.
