Caurem Adivasi Bachao Samiti expresses deep shock and anguish over the recent
reports in local newspapers that the Chief Secretary has decided to allow 600 ore-laden
trucks on the Caurem-Quepem road every day. We are unable to believe that in spite
of dozens of representations being made by us to the Chief Secretary and other Govt
officials regarding various illegalites, he has completely ignored our reasoned arguments
and failed to do anything to stop the pluder of our National wealth. Instead, he has given
these irregular and arbitrary directions purely in the aid of illegal mining, which we
hereby demand to be revoked immediately.

Caurem Adivasi Bachao Samiti has repeatedly brought numerous illegalities plaguing
the transportation and extraction of ore from the Caurem Panchayat Area to the attention
of all the authorities concerned. During our interactions with the CM and the Leader of
the Opposition, both have clearly indicated that they are well aware that all the mines
operating in our area are illegal. In spite of all the evidence and arguments placed before
the authorities, no action has been taken against the errant miners. We have enough
reason to believe that there is complete failure of Law and Order in our State and that
our elected representatives and public officials are all conniving with the looters of our
National wealth, thereby posing grave threat to our National security and prosperity.

Caurem Adivasi Bachao Samiti hereby informs the Chief Secretary and the Government
of Goa that we are determined to fulfill our Constitutional Duty to protect oure natural
environment and to defend our Nation from the deadly enemy within, which is illegally
mining and robbing our wealth, and also destroying our lands, waters and communities
irreversibly. Unless our confidence in the ability and willingness of the Government
to uphold the Rule of Law is restored, we are mandated by our Constitution to protect
our Nation from those who are hell-bent on destroying it. All citizens of the Nation are
hereby urged to join us in our ongoing peaceful protest and to strengthen the struggle to
restore the Rule of Law in our Country.
