* Live phone interview with Biplam Halim from Kolkata, West Bengal

Recently thousands of peasants of Singur, a farming community in West Bengal in India, were forcibly evicted by the government. The eviction of the peasants from the fertile land is to make way for an automobile factory for Tata Motors, a subsidiary of Tata Group, India's largest and oldest business conglomerate. However, the peasants of Singur are actively resisting the occupation of this land. We speak with Biplab Halim, live on the phone from India about what is happening in Singur. He is active in the resistance with the Institute for Motivating Self-Employment in West Bengal. (16:46; English)
