A joint rally began at Ram Lila Maidan in New Delhi on July 16, 2017. The rally marched through the crowded streets of the old city and culminated in a public meeting at Jantar Mantar, in the vicinity of Parliament. Participants in the demonstration carried banners and placards bearing slogans which criticized the all-sided attacks of the state on different sections of the people.

Speakers from the participating organisations addressed the rally at Jantar Mantar. They vigorously condemned the attacks on different sections of people – Muslims and other minorities on the basis of their religion and way of life, Dalits on the basis of their caste, workers through amendments in labour laws while the government promises the biggest Indian and foreign capitalist monopolies “ease of doing business”, peasants driven to bankruptcy and ruin due to withdrawal of guaranteed state procurement at fair prices, students for raising their voices against injustice, women, people of Kashmir and the Northeast who are opposing atrocities under the AFSPA, etc.

They explained that people are completely deprived of political power in this political system. Other than the right to vote they have no mechanisms to select the candidate of their choice for election, hold their elected representatives to account and recall them, or initiate legislation to protect their rights.

The present government, like earlier governments, works only to maximise the profits of the biggest monopoly houses. It is using state-organised communal violence and state terror to divide and crush the people’s struggles. In pursuit of its ambition to become a big power in the world, the Indian ruling class is building up its military might and strengthening its strategic alliance with the US imperialists. In the name of “fighting terrorism” it is strengthening its ties with the fountainhead of terrorism, the US, as well as countries such as Israel, who have caused untold suffering to the Palestinian people and other peoples of West Asia. It is gravely endangering peace and security in the region.

Speakers also pointed out that both the Congress Party and the BJP claim they are working for the people, but in reality they work to implement the policies of the biggest corporate monopolies. So, a mere change of government will not solve the problem because the root cause of all these problems is the present state and the economic and political system. The challenge before us is to organize for the empowerment of the people, so that they can play a decisive role in setting a new economic and political direction for the country, which will ensure the rights and well-being of all.

Call of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 30th August, 2012

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
