For the last few months, the deafening slogans of Azadi, interspersed with slogans demanding justice for Rohith Vemula, against saffronisation and privatisation of education, against militarisation of universities and for the right to dissent have been ringing aloud in campuses across the country. Universities have been brought to the centre of sensational news and attack by both media and the repressive state apparatus alike.

The arrest of students and teachers from JNU, HCU, TISS, FTII and the continuing intimidation faced by many including protesting students from the police in collusion with university administration, ABVP-BJP-RSS and the ruling classes, if any, is just a writing on the wall that suggests an open threat by the ruling classes to show us what it is actually capable of unleashing.

Friends and Comrades, from Democratic Students Union (DSU), we convey our revolutionary greetings to all of you for your fearless solidarity in the last few days against the attack on the students of our campus and the institutional autonomy of the university by the State after the 9th February programme organised by some students of JNU.

Statement from Democratic Teachers Network
We condemn in the strongest terms the police raid upon student hostels in Jawaharlal Nehru University. JNU Students Union President Kanhaiya Kumar, a charismatic voice of the democratic aspirations of students, was lifted by plain clothes police in what appeared to bystanders to be a vigilante attack rather than a police action. Male police have been breaking into and entering hostels including women’s hostels, in a blatant violation of the rule of law. Continue reading
