Meeting to ensure the success of the strike

The Delhi trade unions held a joint convention on 6th February 2012 in order to plan for and ensure the success of the 28th February strike. Mazdoor Ekta Committee, AITUC, BMS, Hind Mazdoor Sabha, AIUTUC, CITU and INTUC participated in the convention.

Apart from the main unions, Delhi Transport Corporation, Delhi Water Board, Delhi Municipal Corporation, MTNL, BSNL and representatives of many such trade unions took part in the convention.

Representatives of all trade unions participating in the convention gave the call for that the 28th February strike must be made successful. Everyone present pointed out that the current UPA government is anti-worker. Everyone condemned the UPA government for the continued escalation in prices.

Addressing the gathering, comrade Birju Nayak of Mazdoor Ekta Leher said clearly that the list of demands that the trade unions have put forward since the past two years, are not demands that the government is incapable of fulfilling. These are also not demands that go against the big capitalist system; these are demands that can be met even in the present capitalist system.

Speaking on the topic of privatization he said that in 2001, during the NDA government, Modern Food Industries was the first prey of the capitalists. At that time, the government said that making bread was not the job of the state. Then the UPA government came to power with a “human face”. Using technical jargon around the issue of privatization it handed over the treasury of the country to the capitalists. Now the government is preparing Air India for capitalist gain.

It is correct to say that the government will change with a vote, but this does not change the condition of the working class. Whoever we chose, will prove to be managers of the capitalists. This is because the country’s power is in the hands of the capitalist class. This is why along with the issue of violation of rights of the workers; starvation, poverty, unemployment and bankruptcy are increasing. On the other hand the profits of the capitalists of our country are on a high, compared with the rest of the world. This disparity is not just due to which government we have chosen in the past 65 years but because power is in the hands of the capitalists and not in the hands of the working class.

In the last 65 years, various governments have proven to be excellent managers for the capitalists. The capitalists of the country have progressed a lot in these years. They have now started to compete with foreign imperialists. Their aspirations are now imperialist. They are also investing our money in many countries abroad. They will invest money on the globe where they feel maximum profits can be guaranteed (for them). 

Therefore, to hope that the capitalists, who are the exploiters of the workers of India, will feel pity for the workers would be wrong as it would go against their capitalist principles.

The working class should prepare to take power from the hands of the capitalist class. This is the only way forward. Come let us make the 28th February strike a huge success! Not to change the government, but as part of the preparation to take power into our own hands.

Among those who addressed the convention were – Sukhdev Prasad Mishra (BMS), Amarjeet Kaur (AITUC), Harbajan Singh Siddhu (Hind Mazdoor Sabha), R.K.Sharma (AIUTUC), Virendra Gaud (CITU), Ramesh Vats (INTUC) and others.

Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation and privatisation. The truth is that there IS an alternative.

The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the program for the Navnirman of India.

Manifesto 2014There 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. However, the working class is being prevented from realizing its potential as the leader of all the exploited, and as the grave-digger of capitalism, by those in the communist movement who are spreading harmful illusions and compromising the class struggle.
