  • Call of the Mazdoor Ekta Committee, May 18, 2020

    Comrade workers,

    The capitalist class is using the state of emergency declared by the Central government in the name of the Coronavirus pandemic to unleash an unprecedented onslaught on our rights.

    India is confronted with a disaster of massive proportions. Crores of workers have lost their jobs, their source of livelihood as a result of the declaration of country wide lockdown which is about to complete two months. Crores of hungry, unemployed workers, deprived of a roof over their heads, are marching towards their villages thousands of miles away, through fields, forests, rail tracks and highways. Hundreds of men, women and children have died on the way, as a result of hunger, exhaustion or in accidents.

  • Nationwide Protest on 22nd May 2020

    Joint Press Statement by Central Trade Unions released on 15th May 2020

    The joint platform of Central Trade Unions in their meeting held on 14th May 2020 took note of the critical situation for the working people in the country during the Lock down period and decided to enhance united actions to meet the challenge. 

  • Workers across the country resist attacks on their livelihood and rights

    On May 12 the UP government announced its decision to abolish various allowances to the state government employees, as part of its “austerity measures” during the coronavirus pandemic.

    According to the government order, which is likely to affect nearly 1.6 million state government employees, at least 6 allowances including city compensation allowance, various special allowances to secretariat staff and police personnel, allowances for junior engineers and public works personnel, allowances to employees of the irrigation department, will be abolished from this month. As part of the austerity drive, the UP government had decided just last month to suspend any increase in dearness allowance to state employees for a period of one and a half years.

  • The ongoing pandemic worldwide has created more difficult situations for the working people. The capitalists are trying to ensure that their profits can remain intact by pushing the burden of the health crisis too on to the backs of the workers. Workers are fighting for their rights, for the right to a life of dignity, for their right to livelihoods, for their right to safe working conditions during the ongoing health emergency. We bring you a report of some of the valiant struggles waged by workers in recent weeks.
  • Almost 75 years have passed since the country became free. The era of zamindars and sahukars ended and the number of banks and their business increased a lot. However they had only one aim, to make maximum profit. After independence the drive to exploit the poor victims remained intact and in fact strengthened; the methods naturally changed.
  • In many states across the country, including Assam, Karnataka, Kerala, Odisha, and Punjab, peasants have poured thousands of litres of milk and dumped rotting fruits and vegetables on the roads.  This goes against the traditional conviction that “Kisan apne liye paida nahin karta aur apna paida kiya kabhi nasht nahin karta” (peasants do not produce for themselves nor ever destroy what they have produced).  It shows their heightened anger at the central and state governments for not organising timely procurement of their produce during the Covid-19 lockdown.
  • Inhuman System and Insensitive State

    Early in the morning of 16th May, at least 24 workers were killed and several others severely injured when the trucks in which they were traveling collided in the Auraiya district of Uttar Pradesh, about 200 km from Lucknow. This is the latest in a series of accidents in which workers have been killed while desperately trying to reach their homes.  

  • I thank you for the highly principled and cogently written article entitled `On the 75th anniversary of the surrender of Nazi Germany: The lessons of history must not be forgotten' written to mark the end of Second World War in Europe on May 9, 1945 with the surrender of  Nazi Germany. 
  • I thank you for carrying the article entitled `On the Occasion of the 202nd Birth Anniversary of Karl Marx' which fell on May 5, 2020. The article carries the byline `Times are calling for the transition from capitalism to socialism'.  Indeed, nothing could be closer to the truth, as the working class world over is groaning under the weight of a continuous economic crises as well as the lockdown imposed by capitalist governments in response to the Covid-19 onslaught.
  • Onward with the struggle of the People to become the Master of India!

    “Hum hain iske malik!  Hindustan Humara!”,  [India belongs to us; We are her master!]

    With this slogan reverberating in their hearts and minds, rebellious Indian soldiers in the British colonial army stationed at Meerut arrived in Delhi on 10th May, 1857. That was the signal for revolts against the rule of the British all over the subcontinent.

  • US imperialism is using every opportunity in this period when countries all over the world are struggling with the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, to escalate its aggression against the peoples and to assert its domination. 

  • The lessons of history must not be forgotten

    soviet_flag_at_reichstag

    On 9th May, 1945, Nazi Germany surrendered, marking the end of the war in Europe. Earlier, in the final large scale military operation in Europe in the Second World War, known as the Battle of Berlin, over 15 lakh soldiers of the Red Army defeated the remnants of Hitler’s Army, entered Germany’s capital Berlin and hoisted the red flag on the Reichstag on 2nd May. The war ended with the subsequent surrender of Japan on 15th August that year.

  • vizag_gas_leak

    A major gas leak took place in a Vishakhapatnam chemical plant in Andhra Pradesh. It is reported that Styrene gas leaked out of from LG Polymers India plant in Venkatapuram area of the city late night at 3 AM on 7th May 2020, when people were still in the middle of their sleep. At least 12 people are known to have died directly due to gas exposure. It is estimated that some 5000 people became sick due to exposure to the gas. Between 500 and 800 had to be hospitalized.

  • The lockdown immediately rendered jobless workers like us who work in the construction sector and are based in Navi Mumbai, Panvel and Badlapur, adjoining Mumbai in Maharashtra. Many people working on the aluminium windows in the buildings of construction projects stay in Badlapur and Panvel. As the lockwon-2 was drawing to a close we realised that it would be extended and we had no alternative but to decide to return to our villages. As this is the season for reaping the harvest, we workers had already emptied our pockets by sending money home.
  • I am writing in response to the article entitled `Condemn laws allowing 12-hour shift' carried on the web-site of the CGPI which has been posted in May 2020.  I would like to join you in the protest against this barbaric act by the various governments against the length and breadth of the country. It is obvious that the capitalists have capitalized on the crisis situation prevailing in the country due to the Covid-19 related lockdown that started in the month of March 2020. As it is the working people are reeling under the shock of the lockdown and now this.

Manifesto 2014Unite around the program to reconstitute the Indian Republic and reorient the economy to ensure prosperity and protection for all!

There 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.
