About village :

Chennai, December 26: On 25^th December 1968, 44 agricultural workers

including 20 women and 19 children were burnt alive. They were in the

midst of a struggle for wage increase. Later part of nineteen sixties

saw struggles of agricultural workers in the whole of the then East

Thanjavur District. Strikes took place in several hundred villages in

this area. During these days the police shot dead Comrade Pakkiri of

Poonthazhangudi village. Ramachandran of Kekkarai village and

Pakkirisami of Sikkal village were attacked and killed by the goondas of

landlords. Situation was thus tense in the district as a whole.

The landlords demanded that the red-flags hoisted in the villages should

be brought down and that the flags of the landlords association should

be hoisted in their place. Besides, they said any increase in wage will

be given liberally, if they do this. The agricultural labourers

organized under the banner of CPI(M) did not relent. They organized

meetings in each village and declared that it was the red flag which

brought them honour and recognition and they would never allow the red

flags to be brought down – come what may.

Keezha Venmani, a tiny hamlet in Nagapattinam taluk, was chosen to

attack the agricultural workers by the landlords. Hired goondas of the

landlords entered the village on 25.12.1968 at 8.30 p.m. with guns,

petrol and other weapons. They shot at all people there and everyone ran

away to protect their lives. Women, children and elderly men who could

not run away took shelter in a small hut (measuring 12’ x 12’). These

goondas finding that they were all inside bolted the door outside and

set fire to it. They poured petrol all over and ensured every one inside

was burnt to death. Totally 28 huts were burnt. This incident shook the

conscience of the world.
