Appeal for West Bengal Solidarity Fund


THE CPI(M) and the Left are under tremendous attack in West Bengal after the assembly elections. Sixteen CPI(M) and Left Front activists  have been killed since the election results came out. Hundreds of people have been injured in physical attacks. Scores of party offices and trade union offices have been attacked or captured. Many of the party cadres had to leave their homes because of threats and intimidation. The TMC-Congress government has shown no interest whatsoever in curbing this violence. 


The Central Committee has given a call to all party units to collect funds to support the families of those killed, injured and displaced in these attacks. It appeals to all supporters and those concerned with democratic rights to contribute to the fund.


Cheques/drafts may be made in the name of West Bengal State Relief Committee and sent directly to
