Thames and Tesside 2023

Thames and Teesside 2023 – 40 x 40cm, acrylic on canvas

Tata expanded Kalinganagar SEZ– a new town built up in the face of local tribal resistance and taking advantage of iron ore reserves in Tomka. 13 Adivasi were killed by the police, more than 40 were wounded. Sunak’s 12 Freeports and 74 SEZs will destroy social governance in the UK, deregulated SEZs will ‘carve out’ extraterritorial zones of exception to the host country’s Govt, Big Govt suports the state, small Govt is about entrenching corporate powers, and making new laws tailored for maximum capital extraction of public money for the 1% to profit.
