Fighting Injustice in Polepally SEZ

The main purpose of this blog is to inform the world about a historic struggle being waged by farmers belonging to 3 villages in Mahabubnagar district in the South-Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The state government has forcibly acquired about 1000 acres of land belonging to poor farmers of Polepally, Mudireddy Pally and Gundla Gadda Thanda. All these farmers are illiterate and belong to Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes and Backward Castes. In short, they were the poorest of the poor and the most vulnerable sections of our society.
