Gladson Dungdung

This morning, I was offloaded by the Air India from Delhi-London Flight AI 115, I was going to attend the Workshop on Environmental History and Politics of South Asia to be held in the University of Sussex, UK on May 10th. The reason told to me is that my passport had been impounded in 2013, therefore, they will send it back to RTO, Ranchi for verification. The fact is that my passport was impounded in 2013 and returned to me after proper verification in 2014. Thereafter, I had attended couple of international conferences in Denmark and London in 2014 and 2015 subsequently but there was no issue at all. Therefore, I m sure that this is a clear impact of my book “Mission Saranda: A War foar Ntural Resources in India”. Defaulters of millions of INR like Mr. Vijay Malaya cant be offloaded but activists like me are bound to be offloaded. However, my fight for the Adivasis’ ownership rights over the Natural resources, Adivasi identiry, Human Rights, Ecology and against unjust development processes will continue till they take away my right to life forever. 

Jai Adivasi!
