Call to build a mass movement to oppose the anti worker, anti national course of the bourgeoisie

Nearly 3000 trade union leaders and working class activists from different sectors of the economy from all regions of India participated in an All India Convention in New Delhi on September 15, 2014.  There were representatives of the AITUC, CITU, HMS, AIUTUC, TUCC, UTUC, HMS, INTUC, BMS, AICCTU, LPF, SEWA, as well as the Mazdoor Ekta Committee (MEC) participating in this convention. Federations of railway workers, bank and insurance sector workers, port and dock workers, defence sector workers, mine workers, etc.  were present in large numbers.

 The Convention of workers denounced in one voice the pro capitalist amendments in labour laws that had been carried out by the Rajasthan government and demanded their immediate repeal.

The Convention squarely blamed the government for not implementing the 10 point demand charter that the trade unions have been raising for several years. It called for a united and concerted struggle against the reforms of labour laws being carried out by the central and state governments, to enable the Indian and foreign capitalists to reap even higher rates of profit. As part of the program of globalization through liberalization and privatisation, many more sectors of the economy are being opened up for foreign direct investment, the path of public-private partnership (PPP) is increasingly being adopted in many sectors. This dangerous course in which our economy is being driven was condemned by the Convention. It was pointed out that this will lead to even more intensified exploitation of the labour, land and natural resources of our people. The Convention called for a united struggle against raising of the FDI cap in sectors such as defence, insurance, railways, etc. 

The Convention called upon the central government to immediately implement the recommendations of the last Indian Labour Conference and the 10 major demands of the trade unions that have been pending for a long time.

In order to strengthen and carry forward the struggle against the anti working class, anti national and anti people policies of the government, the Convention decided on the following program:

  • To hold joint conventions at the state level and wherever possible, at the level of districts and specific industries, in September-October.
  • To observe December 5, 2014 as All India resistance day, by organizing powerful demonstrations and protest actions in all state capitals.

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.
