New Year was ushered in by a highly informative and energizing WUM meeting held in Chennai on 5th of Jan, 2013. Workers and working class leaders from automobile engineering, manufacturing, aviation industry, hospitals, railways and municipal and panchayats, garment industry, construction and unorganized sectors attended the meeting.
On January 6th 2013, the Maharashtra Regional Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India organised a meeting of its members and supporters to celebrate the anniversary of our Party. Workers, many from the organised sector, women and youth were present in good numbers.
The experience of the on-going struggle for justice and protection of women’s rights, fuelled by the gang-rape in a moving bus leading to the painful death of a 23-year old woman in Delhi, has brought forth some very important lessons.
While the most irresponsible statements have been made by the so-called political leaders of our country in connection with the Delhi gang-rape case, it is heartening to see that transport workers’ unions have responded with a high degree of social responsibility.
Reporters from Mazdoor Ekta Lehar spoke to leaders of the tens of thousands of workers who had come to the rally on December 20. Along with discussing their demands and struggles, we raised the question of the permission of FDI in retail business despite widespread protests in Parliament and asked them what must be done to bring the working people, who form 90% of society, into power.
The first part of this pamphlet is an analysis of facts and phenomena to identify and expose the real aims behind the Note Ban. The second part is devoted to a critical appraisal of the government’s claims that it will reduce inequality, corruption and terrorism. The third part is what Communist Ghadar Party believes is the real solution to these problems and the immediate program of action towards that solution.
100 years ago Ghadar Party was formed by Indians in the US.It was historic milestone in our anti-colonial struggle.
The goal of this party was to organise a revolution to liberate our motherland from British servitude and establish a free and independent India with equal rights for all. It believed this to be the necessary condition for our people to hold their heads high anywhere in the world.
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.
