India-Africa Summit

I read with great interest and pleasure the article in the Nov. 15-30, 2015 issue of MEL on the India-Africa Summit, with the byline `Indian bourgeoisie's imperialist drive in Africa', in light of the Summit held in New Delhi 26-30, 2015.  It is important to have indepth articles of this type to educate the working class on the true nature of the Indian bourgeoisie.

Indeed, the examination of facts in general, and of these in particular, show that the Indian bourgeoisie has entered the highest stage of capitalism, viz., that of imperialism.  The reactionary Indian bourgeoisie today has nothing to offer the peoples of the world except domination and brutal exploitation, covered up in niceties such as co-opertion and development. True to the imperial character of the bourgeoisie, the Indian bourgeoisie characterizes the peoples of Africa in the same manner that the erstwhile colonial powers did, as one homogeneous mass, who deserve to be exploited for their labour and whose lands can be pillaged and looted for all the natural resources that lie on top and below the surface of the earth therein.

This is no different from the attitude that the Indian bourgeoisie has towards the people of India, who are also treated in the same way.  There is scant regard for the rich history, diversity and multi-facted human development in these regions.  While wearing the bogus cloak of a common shared colonial past, the Indian ruling circles today have an attitude of condescention and talk down to the people of India, from their vantage point of having superior development in the fields of industry and  technology, and finance capitalism.   Examples abound in this context, from the oil exploration in South Sudan by the ONGC to the investments of the big bourgeoisie in Mauritius.  India also today is showing interest in participating in military operations in troubled regions, which is a different name for destablizing governments of countries.  

Indeed, one of the immediate goals of the engagement in Africa appears to be to garner support for realizing the cherished dream of a permanent seat in the UN Security Council.  One thing is for sure is that none of these activities are in the interests of either the people of Africa or that of India.  One should not be fooled by the sweet talk and propaganda and realize what the true nature of this beast is.  In this regard, I thank you once again for this highly insightful article.

Sincerely, S. Nair, Kochi

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.
