“ Inhuman and Illegal Eviction and Demolition at Hampi Bazaar”

Friends of Hampi, Shree Sharada Women Welfare Association, Shree Maharshi Valmiki Sangha, Shree Hampi Vijayanagara Guides Union, Shree Vijayanagara Auto Drivers Union, Citizens Rights and Protection Forum – HAMPI and EQUATIONS, Bengaluru have come together to organise a discussion on:

29 August 2011

2:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Ashirvad, St. Marks Road, Bangalore

This discussion is towards expressing strong disapproval of the inhuman and illegal eviction and demolition of Hampi Bazaar which took place on 29th July 2011. Hampi is a part of the historical and ancient city of Vijayanagara. It is an important tourism destination, where visitors (domestic, foreign, pilgrims, researchers etc) experience the dynamism and colour of a vibrant bazaar. Today the Hampi Bazaar is facing a crisis, with it having been illegally demolished on 29 July 2011. Eviction notices were issued a few hours before the demolition, giving no time and opportunity for people to respond and react to them. Neither alternate housing nor clear guidelines for conducting business were issued prior to the eviction. This discussion is also being called as an act of solidarity towards the people in Hampi who have faced the injustice of forced evictions.

This discussion aims to:
1.    Have a detailed discussion on the illegal eviction and demolition that took place in Hampi
2.    Discussion on the concept on heritage, culture and tourism and its implications
3.    To discuss the way forward and jointly make a plan of action
