In the American War of Independence from the British, only twelve members were united like a solid rock headed by George Washington. Rest of the public joined, when they discovered the new Republic is for all.
Without complete compendious, there cannot be a revolution! Without local indigenous support it's never possible.
Demands stated are for the total independence of Goa from the Indian Union, abolishment of the caste system, and equal rights for all as per the UN Resolutions 1541/42. But what is required now, is to have leadership first.
And that cannot be done individually, a person needs to be well established in business for recognition and have his/her's coffers full for three generations. People may have differents demands and opinions but no true Goan can listen to those demands, as also no Goan is ready to pick up arms nowadays being a minority.
Now, soon after the conquest of the Indian Union over Goa on 19 December 1961, a new issue of self-identity immediately cropped up. One of the Indian States (Maharastra) laid claim on this new territory on the basis of similarities between language, culture and traditions in both the regions [Guess, they didn't read - Goa and ourselves, by B. K. Boman-Behram]. But a political party (UGP) of Goa opposed and firmly believed that Goan language (Concanim) was an independent language and not a dialect of the other and insisted that Goa has its unique identity of its own and thus cannot be part of the other state.
Late. Indira Gandhi, the then prime minister of India, decided to resolve the issue by holding an Opinion Poll, after dissolving the then existing Assembly. The Congress central working committee resolved at its meeting on 3 September 1966 to hold Opinion Poll. The options were two – either retain Goa as the union territory or merge Goa into the neighbouring state.
The people of Goa voted for an independent state and won. However the percentage of voters who participated in voting were mere 10% of the total population and were mostly non-indigenous people.
The concept of Goa Statehood was sparked by different classes/groups/
The Goa Statehood has been conferred upon Goans. Neither the Opinion Poll nor the Statehood of Goa bear any significance to the indigenous natives of Goa, because the events had mainly the participation of the non indigenous people of Goa who have no ownership or legislative rights on the territory of Goa. If Goa is to be integrated in the Indian Republic, it has to be done through self-determination of the indigenous people of Goa and through proper legal processes by signing agreements/contracts with the Gãocars/indigenous people only, and not by mere referendum or plebiscite exercised by the masses, as the Gãocarias are co-operative establishments with absolute ownership rights.
When in 1961, the Indian Union invaded and annexed Goa to them without any plebiscite, merely a result of a conquest by force of arms! This is hypocrisy.
Speaking from the Consulate of the Republic of India from the second floor of Damodar Mangalji & Cia in Pangim; Goa was never a territory alienated from the Indian Union, which never existed before 1947, and since the Indian Union had already assured those states that had more recently been alienated from it, that it had no designs on them, the Union of India therefore had no rights or moral basis to levy any claims upon Goa and its citizens. And therefore, the Indian Union had no business interfering in the internal affairs of Goa and to dictate whether the Portuguese should remain or not. Only the indigenous Goans could have the right to decide that.
When the government of the Indian Union however, saw that the Goans did not support its program of mischief and robbery, and that the criminal acts of 1954 could not be repeated, it took a new tack.
Following the Invasion of Goa in 1961, the Indian Union announced that Goa has become a part of the Union by might of arms, thus throwing into the dustbin its pious promises that the citizens of Goa alone would decide the fate of Goa!
The Indian Union amended its constitution by the 12th Constitution Amendment Act to claim that Goa had, as a result of its criminal invasion and occupation, become an integral part of the Republic of India!
There was no Plebiscite!
There was Referendum! By which the Goans could decide if they wanted to be integrated into the Union of India!
Subsequently, in 1974, when the Portuguese Communist overthrew the Portuguese government, they signed a "treaty" with the Indian Union wherein they recognised that Goa was integrated into the Indian Union from the day of its occupation!
This "treaty" is illegal and without any value. That is because Goa was and is not Portugal's/Mario's to bargain over without the express and stated consent of the Goan people, in accordance with all norms of international laws.
Goa is not Portugal's chattel, and Goans are not Portuguese slaves that Portugal, granted the dubious point that the Communist are the legal Portuguese government since 1974, so that Portugal can gift or cede Goa and Goans without any legal reference to the wishes of the Goans!
Therefore, this "treaty" is nothing but a fraud and a mockery of all norms of international law and decency and an attempt by the Indian Union and its allies in the Portuguese underworld. The Portuguese Communist especially Mario, added insult to the injury of the Goan people who suffered at the hands of terrorist nation - the Indian Union!
The "treaty" in itself is an act of Fraud. It alleges that Goa became an integral part of the Indian Union from the dates of the Indian occupations - 1954 & 1961. That is Fraud because between those dates and 1974, when "Portugal" formally "repudiated" Goa, the Indian occupation was not accepted either by the Goans or by the Portuguese government, and the same could not be imposed upon either as having been with their agreement and assent by retrospective effect and effectively by one not in continuity with them, but a mere robber and outlaw, a bandit!
Goa can become "free" only when Portugal returns to its senses. We need to wake up Portugal. This may seem hard and utopian. It is not. It is more difficult attempting to build an independent Goa without reference to Portugal. It is more difficult attempting to build a restored Portugal only with metropolitan Portugal and with Goa. It is easier to join up together with all Portuguese patriots, Goans, Metropolitans, Africans, East Asians et cetera., and work for the restoration and completion of the Lusofone Community wherein Goa lays as a Black Pimple on its map.
Even after mentioning the brief details; Goans are a bunch of incomprehensive egoistic gutless bastardised wimps who are filled with frustrations, greed and only comprehend on hybrid theories and later make irrational decisions of external paraphernalia of independence, like a name, flag, anthem, constitution, law codes and motto. And, Dr. João Hugo de Sequeira alias Jack is a great example.
