     ‘India’s Descent into Fascism: How Do We Stop It?

    April 17 & 18, 2013

    New Delhi


    ANHAD

     A DECADE OF RESISTANCE: 2003-2013

    Anhad is observing the completion of its ten years. Formed in March 2003 in the aftermath of Gujarat 2002 , ANHAD has actively contested the ideology of hate, the growing authoritarian character of the state, the growth of communal and fascist forces along with doing huge amount of work for the marginalised sections of the society especially women & minorities. ANHAD has intervened at the policy level, has done advocacy work from the grass root to the national level.

    Today when the national consciousness is tilting towards the communal ideology and communal thought process has become common sense we feel there is a need to urgently call upon all secular and democratic forces in the country to stop India’s Descent into Fascism.

    The falling economy, growing unemployment, displacement of people from their natural habitats and the joblessness created by the bursting of the IT bubble is creating a class which ,not being engaged with any ideological people’s movement and not having the skills to form a united struggle, is bound to turn towards fascism, and it is under these conditions when the ideas of fascism and dictatorship gain ground.   

    ANHAD is organising a two day national convention ‘India’s Descent into Fascism: How Do We Stop It?’ at the Constitution Club, Rafi Marg, New Delhi on April 17 & 18, 2013.

    The convention will have representatives from a large number of states to present an over view of the situation from their states, experts who have worked on the questions of how terror has been used as a tool to demonise the minorities, communalisation of public and private spaces, culture, educational institutions and media & different segments of the society, it will look at recent cases of communal violence and the way forward. 

    A special panel of academicians, jurists, activists will at the end come out with recommendations for the government and the civil society.

            Calling all progressive, democratic, secular organisations to join us at the National Convention

             ‘India’s Descent into Fascism: How Do We Stop It?

            April 17 & 18, 2013

            New Delhi


            ANHAD

             A DECADE OF RESISTANCE: 2003-2013

            Anhad is observing the completion of its ten years. Formed in March 2003 in the aftermath of Gujarat 2002 , ANHAD has actively contested the ideology of hate, the growing authoritarian character of the state, the growth of communal and fascist forces along with doing huge amount of work for the marginalised sections of the society especially women & minorities. ANHAD has intervened at the policy level, has done advocacy work from the grass root to the national level.

            Today when the national consciousness is tilting towards the communal ideology and communal thought process has become common sense we feel there is a need to urgently call upon all secular and democratic forces in the country to stop India’s Descent into Fascism.

            The falling economy, growing unemployment, displacement of people from their natural habitats and the joblessness created by the bursting of the IT bubble is creating a class which ,not being engaged with any ideological people’s movement and not having the skills to form a united struggle, is bound to turn towards fascism, and it is under these conditions when the ideas of fascism and dictatorship gain ground.   

            ANHAD is organising a two day national convention ‘India’s Descent into Fascism: How Do We Stop It?’ at the Constitution Club, Rafi Marg, New Delhi on April 17 & 18, 2013.

            The convention will have representatives from a large number of states to present an over view of the situation from their states, experts who have worked on the questions of how terror has been used as a tool to demonise the minorities, communalisation of public and private spaces, culture, educational institutions and media & different segments of the society, it will look at recent cases of communal violence and the way forward. 

            A special panel of academicians, jurists, activists will at the end come out with recommendations for the government and the civil society.

              :) that is the beauty of Indian Democracy.

              Speakers are working on the questions of communalism in various parts of this country. They do not definitely represent the whole country. We are sure there are very good minds and speakers whom we could not invite. Have our limitations.

              We have invited political leaders as we do not see a solution without political commitment and participation.

                Hi,
                I send you all the best wishes for the success of the event.
                It will be a trying task to rescue the country from the fascist acculturation into which it has fallen. THe ideology that befell Gandhi has now penetrated all institutions of the State and the media, with no serious counter-education on the constitutional values.
                I earnestly hope that this will be develped into a regular, loose platform for cooperation among like-minded groups and individuals, with an increasing no of secular, people's politicians, with periodic meetings, to be hosted by a different group each time especially given the resource limitations for such activities.
                Best wishes
                Faizi
