Revelations of the BRICS Summit declaration

Submitted by vivek on Wed, 16/05/2012 - 21:30

Sir,

I am writing to thank you for carrying the informative and important article entitled `What does the declaration of the BRICS Summit reveal?' carried in the April 15-30, 2012 issue of MEL on the recently concluded summit in New Delhi.  This block consisting of Brazil, India, Russia, China and South Africa has come into being a couple of decades after the bi-polar division of the world.  It is well known that these countries have been aspiring powers with dreams of world domination, or at least of domination in a sphere of influence.  Thus the uni-polar world that came into being in 1989 with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the East Bloc has revealed new dangers.  Far from being a principled block that would oppose US imperialism, these countries are trying to navigate the troubled waters with dreams of making the most of the instability in the world and the failure of US to really establish itself as the supreme power in the world.  The article is very informative and describes in some detail the nature of the conflict between this bloc and the US and the primary Institutions under US control such as the Bretton Woods Institutions of World Bank and IMF, which came into being at the end of the Second World War.  It points out the bloc has opposed the pressure to bring these countries under the ambit of a `green economy'.  More noteworthy is the fact that the bloc has not condemned the open acts of war and crimes against humanity recently carried out the US and NATO in Libya and their provocative activities in the Middle East, and in the neighbourhood including Afghanistan.

The article points out that it is not all harmonious even within the bloc, characteristic of any imperialist bloc with contending powers trying to come together.  Having said this, it is now important for the people of India and indeed of the region and of all the member countries of this bloc to be aware that imperialism is not the way forward for the masses and the working peoples.  Imperialism is the striving of the bourgeoisie to achieve its own aims -- it is not and can never be the goal of the working class in any country or world over.

By waging an ideological struggle against the imperialism, the working class has an opportunity to demonstrate that it alone is capable of leading the people away from the path of disaster.  The work of the CGPI in this regard must be commended.

Sincerely,

A. Narayan,

Bangalore.

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.
