Comrades,

We are marking the occasion of our Party’s 38th birth anniversary at a time when the peoples of all countries are facing an extremely grave situation. Insecurity of livelihood has reached an unbearable level. There is an unprecedented level of anarchy and violence all over the world. Racism, communalism, oppression of specific castes and communities, of nations and nationalities – are all growing from bad to worse.

Human Rights

I am writing to thank you for the article in the Dec. 1-15, 2018 issue of MEL that was published to mark the 70th anniversary of Human Rights Day, which carried the byline `Navnirman of Indian society based on modern conception of human rights is an immediate necessity.' The most important feature, if I may say so, is that Human Rights have been won by the peoples of the world through long decades, if not centuries of struggle and is not something that the bourgeoisie should congratulate itself on giving to the peoples of the world. But rather, right from the era starting at the end of World War II, the issue of Human Rights has been a sticking point for the bourgeoisie and the imperialists on which they are unable to satisfy the crying needs of the peoples of the world. The concessions that were made at that time have also been rolled back.

NGT verdict on Sterlite

SterlightOn 15th December, the NGT issued its verdict in favour of Sterlite, Thoothukudi, setting aside the Tamilnadu government’s action of closing down the plant in May.

These Elections are a FarceInterview with Comrade Lal Singh, General Secretary of Communist Ghadar Party of India by Comrade Chandra Bhan, Editor of Mazdoor Ekta Lehar

Manifesto 2014There is growing realisation among workers, peasants and other self-employed people that the program of liberalisation and privatisation only serves to enrich an exploiting minority at their expense. Mass resistance is growing to this anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program. However, the working class is being prevented from realizing its potential as the leader of all the exploited, and as the grave-digger of capitalism, by those in the communist movement who are spreading harmful illusions and compromising the class struggle.
