Condemn the barbaric decision of the European Union to bomb refugees
The European Union appears set to pursue the barbaric bombing of boats carrying thousands of innocent immigrants seeking to cross over from West Asia and North Africa to Europe.
The European Union’s leading members – the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain – have already agreed to the “military” assault on what the grouping of 28 member states is calling “human smugglers.”
Cynically exploiting the death of over 1800 men, women and children in the course of crossing the Mediterranean by boats, the EU has decided to "solve" the humanitarian crisis by bombing boats carrying refugees!

This war could well be a full fledged nuclear ho

Oppose the diabolical plan of US to destroy Iraq and Syria
The ISIS, whom the US is now labeling as terrorists, is a US creation. It was armed and organized by the US allies such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria. It was a part of the grand coalition of terrorist groups set into motion in Syria by the US and its allies under the name of the Free Syrian Army. There are credible reports that the US ordered the 30,000 strong Iraqi army in Mosul to hand it over to 800 ISIS fighters and this was done.
A devastating civil war is raging within Ukraine, with the Ukraine army launching a bloody offensive against the people in the eastern part of the country, with the full political and military backing of the US imperialists and NATO forces.
Time and again it has been shown that it is the Anglo American imperialists, and their agencies in India and Pakistan, who are the biggest roadblock to peace in the subcontinent. On the other hand, the so called "patriotism" that the ruling class promotes, is to lick the boots of Anglo American imperialists, and spew hatred against the neighbouring countries, especially Pakistan.
The following is a transcript of an apparently bugged phone conversation between U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. It reveals the dangerous state of anarchy and chaos which exists internationally and which the U.S.

Condemn US imperialists' undeclared war against the people of Pakistan
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met US President Obama in October to demand that US immediately cease its illegal and barbaric war against the people of Pakistan, being waged through unmanned drone strikes.
US President Obama addressed the UN General Assembly on September 24, 2013. This address was nothing less than an arrogant justification for the US imperialist drive to establish its unquestioned domination over the whole world, through military aggression and blackmail.
August 6 and August 9 this year marked the 68th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki respectively.

Aimed at justifying violation of human rights and sovereignty

The new Chinese Premier’s visit to India from 19 to 22 May 2013 was followed almost immediately by the Indian Prime Minister’s visit to Japan from 27 to 30 May 2013.

Anglo – American imperialists must pay for their most horrific crimes
Ten years to the day after the Anglo – American imperialists launched an unprovoked attack on March 19, 2003 and more than a year since the last combat troops were officially withdrawn – the conflict they unleashed shows no sign of winding down.
Hugo Chavez, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, passed away in Caracas on March 5, 2013, after a heroic and prolonged battle against cancer.

Condemn the continued violation of Syria’s sovereignty by the US imperialists

End the inhuman and unprincipled US blockade against Cuba!
On November 13, the United Nations General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in favour of a resolution calling for an end to the more than 50 year long blockade of Cuba by the US. The fact that the vote was 188 member states for the resolution with only 3 against, shows the complete isolation of the United States with regard t
On November 19, the British government announced that it is recognising the grouping of Syrian opposition elements as the legitimate representatives of Syria.

“The traitorous big bourgeoisie, that is the big capitalists and big landlords who had grown rich by collaborating with the colonial rulers, compromised and collaborated in the communal Partition of 1947. The big bourgeoisie did so for the narrow aim of acquiring power in its own hands. It has used that power to grow enormously bigger. It is today dragging the country to
Strong opposition to the bid to isolate and punish Iran

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 lab
Firm stance needed against warmongering and intervention by imperialist powers
The upcoming NAM summit in Tehran is plainly not only an opportunity for Iran to further thwart the efforts of to isolate it, but also for such participating countries to take steps in coordination with each other to deal with the dangerous situation in the region and the world. Their leaders are expected to rise to the occasion and take a firm stance against the warmongering and blatant interventions by the imperialist powers.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 12 August, 2012
Sixty five years after independence from the British, who is free in India today? Workers, peasants, intellectuals, women, religious minorities, nations and nationalities are all oppressed. The big bourgeoisie has used the state of the Indian Republic to become the most dominant and ruling force of society, and is dragging the entire country onto a dangerous path – colluding and contending with other imperialist powers, and has grown rich not only by domestic but also through external plunder. The time has come to negate this state which negates the rights and aspirations of all our peoples. This can be done if and only if the working class takes the lead. For India to be free and independent, it is essential that every part our country, every section of our people, is free from oppression or discrimination of any kind. On the 65th anniversary of independence, the Communist Ghadar Party calls on all… to unite firmly around the program to reconstitute the Indian Union on a voluntary basis, redefine democracy to empower the people!
In complete and cynical disregard for the principle of respecting the independence and sovereignty of countries and people, US imperialism and its allies have stepped up their heinous military and political campaign to overthrow the Syrian government and establish their complete domination over that country.
The relations between India and Iran, a country with whom India has had close ties both in the distant past and in modern times, are coming under increasing pressure from the US imperialist-led offensive against Iran.

Huge protests have been taking place in Pakistan, after NATO supply lines to Afghanistan through Pakistan were reopened last week. These supply lines had been closed by the government of Pakistan after a US missile strike on the Chalala air base in Pakistan last November killed 24 Pakistani military personnel.
Condemn the use of weapons of mass terror by US imperialism and its allies!
Opposition is growing to the policy of US imperialism to increasingly use unmanned aircraft (called drones) to unleash death and destruction on various targets in other countries. Originally used as spy planes, drones have been modified to carry missiles and launch attacks. Over the coming decade, the US is expected to double its expenditure on drones to more than $11 billion. The command of these deadly machines lies with the American spy agency the CIA, and is located thousands of kilometres away in secured locations back in the US or in other bases.
On June 22, NATO member country Turkey sent one of its planes without warning into the airspace of Syria, a country which for many months now has been battling a fierce imperialist offensive on many fronts.

Member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO)—Russia, China and the four central Asian states Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan—issued a joint statement opposing external intervention in Iran and Syria, at the recently concluded meeting of the Heads of State of the organization in Beijing on June 7, 2012.
I wish to join the refrain expressed in the article published in the June 1-15, 2012 issue of MEL entitled “Condemn US imperialist intrigue and meddling in India and the region!” This article was published at the time of the visit of Ms. Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State and well-known war monger and mischief maker.
Condemn US imperialist intrigue and meddling in India and the region!
The visit of Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, to India in early May was an occasion for the US imperialists to apply pressure on India to further their own nefarious interests, and to intrigue and meddle in our internal affairs and in the affairs of this region.
In the middle of April 2012, India successfully test fired a long-range ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, the Agni-5. Agni 5 has been declared to be an Inter Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). It was launched from the Andhra Coast and landed successfully in the Southern Indian Ocean over 5000 km away. The monopoly media immediately was ecstatic on two counts.

The latest plans of the US imperialists and their allies to overthrow the Assad government in Syria and achieve “regime change” there are unfolding. For more than one year, the US has been openly inciting, funding and backing opposition elements in Syria with the single aim of kicking out the Assad government, which it sees as an obstacle to its plans to establish its compl
One of the weapons perfected by the US imperialists to create trouble for countries and governments which oppose them is to organise and back subversive groups from within those countries. These groups are trained to carry out sabotage, assassination and other criminal activities aimed at destabilising those countries.
The BRICS grouping, just like other imperialist groupings, is wrought with contradictions between the member states. India and China for example have contradictions over unequal trade relations; they are competing for energy and other resources in Myanmar, South Sudan and other countries of Africa. They are contending with each other in Nepal, Sri Lanka, and South East Asia.
An extremely serious and threatening situation is developing as a result of the warmongering by the US and Western imperialist powers and Israel against Iran. The warmongering and hysteria against Iran is being escalated almost on a daily basis.
Syria has been on the firing line of US imperialism for many years. It has also been a major target of US imperialism's gun in West Asia —the Zionist state of Israel — with which it shares borders. The strategic Golan Heights of Syria have been under illegal Israeli Occupation since 1967.
The state and people of Pakistan are confronted today with all sided US imperialist pressure and blackmail, threatening their very existence as a country. This pressure and blackmail has intensified following Pakistan's refusal to cooperate with the US in its "war against terrorism" in Afghanistan and the border regions of Pakistan.
The US imperialists continue to step up their policy of blackmail and sanctions on Iran. In particular, the right of the Iranian nation and people to pursue their own civilian nuclear program is being targeted, portraying it as a “threat to humanity”.
62 years ago, on 26 January 1950, the present-day Republic of India was proclaimed. This marked the consolidation of the state power of the Indian bourgeoisie, which had taken over power from the British colonialists when they were forced to leave because of the mounting struggles of the people of India.
Contradictions have become increasingly visible between countries, nations and peoples fighting for their sovereignty and the dominant imperialist powers that are imposing their vision on every country. US imperialism has shown its readiness to wage wars to defend its dominant position and those of American multinational corporations. It has unleashed death and destruction in West Asia and North Africa already.
Comrades, we have launched an important initiative to engage all communists in discussion on the urgent necessity for preparing the working class to take political power into its own hands. I call upon you to take up this task and spare no effort in taking this widely in every region of the country.Let us put pressure on everyone calling themselves communist to take a clear stand on this question— are they or are they not agreed on the urgent necessity to prepare the working class to take political power and establish proletarian democracy in place of capitalist democracy?
The 31st birth anniversary of the Communist Ghadar Party of India was celebrated in grand and colourful style in Delhi on 25th December 2011. The entire program was managed from beginning to end by the youthful comrades of the Party.

The people and government of Pakistan have responded as one with anger and indignation, and protests have erupted all across the country.
US imperialism and its allies, including Israel, Britain, France, Germany and other powers, have been stepping up the pressure and siege of Iran to a feverish pitch in recent weeks. After a decision by Britain to further tighten sanctions on Iran, the Iranian majlis (parliament) decided on November 27 to downgrade its ties with Britain.
On November 22, the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal based in Malaysia indicted former US President George Bush and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair for war crimes, in connection with the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq.
The key to the victory of the revolutionary alternative lies in the working class taking political power, in alliance with the peasantry. This makes it urgent for all the leading activists and organisers of workers to come together. We must chart out one plan and program for the working class to become the ruling class. Inquilab cannot just be a slogan or distant dream. It is an urgent task we must take up for solution.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 6th November, 2011
The murder of Gaddafi and the recolonisation of Libya are a message to the African peoples that the Anglo-American imperialists and other European powers are initiating a new scramble for the recolonisation and redivision of Africa. It poses a grave threat to the freedom and independence of all the African countries.
Lakhs of workers from all sectors of the economy participated in an All India protest on November 8, marked by rallies and jail bharos. The protests took place in all the state capitals as well as other towns.
US imperialism is putting immense pressure on Pakistan. This, when it is firmly established that the US itself is the biggest sponsor of terrorism worldwide. US imperialism has destroyed Afghanistan. Its "war against terrorism" is getting exposed more and more as a strategy for the conquest of Asia, as a prelude to conquer the world. The economy of US imperialism is in deep recession.
Anti-Imperialist forces resolve to throw imperialists out of Asia
We denounce the decision of the Manmohan Singh government to send the Indian Army to Afghanistan to "train" the puppet Afghan army, set up by the US imperialists, to attack the Afghan people's anti-imperialist national liberation struggle. We consider this as an excuse to intervene in Afghanistan against our own brothers and sisters.
We believe that the fountainhead of terrorism worldwide is US imperialism.
“We will feel safer when US forces leave” was the unanimous sentiment expressed by people of Afghanistan, who gathered to protest against the invasion of their country by the US, 10 years ago on October 7, 2011. The protestors clearly wanted the immediate withdrawal of US and other foreign troops from their country.
A great tragedy for the peoples and complication in the struggle for self-determination arose through the betrayal of principles by the Soviet Union headed by the Khrushchevites. While restoring capitalist exploitation and national oppression within, the Soviet Union emerged as a full-fledged social-imperialist power, contending and colluding with the US for domination over the globe. The Soviet social-imperialists proclaimed the nefarious theory of “limited sovereignty” to justify their efforts to dominate the countries of people’s democracy in Eastern Europe. In the name of opposing US imperialism, they intervened in the affairs of a number of countries in Europe, Africa and Asia. The invasions of Czechoslovakia in 1968 and of Afghanistan in 1979 showed the extent to which the rulers of the Soviet Union had departed from the principles originally laid down in that country.
Ten years of unjust wars and violation of sovereignty under concocted pretexts
Ten years after that horrific event, it is now clear that the terrorist attack of 9/11 was the launching pad for a fascist military campaign to assert and impose the hegemony of US imperialism on the global scale. It was either a remarkable piece of good fortune for US imperialism, or a clandestine diabolical plot masterminded by the US imperialists themselves. US imperialism has clearly been the principal political beneficiary.
Ten years ago, on October 7, 2001, the US imperialists and their allies invaded Afghanistan, and they remain there to this day. In the name of waging “war against terrorism”, they have occupied the country, set up their chosen regime, bombed the villages and mountains, and killed and maimed tens of thousands of its people.
In a move with important international ramifications, the Iranian Majlis (Parliament) has formally charged 26 US officials with war crimes and crimes against humanity, and they will face prosecution in Iranian courts in absentia. Following their trial in Iranian courts, the dossier on their crimes will be forwarded to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.
Anglo-American troops and intelligence agents – Out of South Asia!
Statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 5th May, 2011
Terrorism as a preferred tactic of imperialist geo-politics was first introduced in our region by the two superpowers, US imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism. After the expulsion of Soviet troops from Afghanistan, the American and British imperialists and their intelligence agencies, the CIA and MI5, became the principal sponsors of terrorist groups in west and south Asia, using them to topple regimes, infiltrate popular movements and destroy nations in their drive for unquestioned world domination.

North Korea immediately responded with artillery fire that hit Yonphyong island which houses a South Korean military base along with some civilian population.
US President Obama recently visited India to strengthen the alliance between the US imperialists and the Indian ruling class. This alliance is fraught with peril for the workers and people of India as well as for the peace and security of South Asia and the world. It must be opposed by all forces interested in peace and the wellbeing of the peoples.
Hundreds of activists marched from Mandi House to Parliament, in New Delhi, on the morning of November 8, 2010, to protest against the visit of US President Obama to our country.

Thousands of US soldiers armed to the teeth with the deadliest weaponry available today began a massive ‘surge’ offensive in Afghanistan in the second week of February 2010 to wipe out centers of Afghan resistance to the occupation forces. According to the US and NATO occupation forces, the aim is to “liberate” various regions from “Taliban Control”. In the course of this latest offensive, hundreds of civilians, including women and childen, have been killed. Mazdoor Ekta Lehar condemns this latest offensive of the US imperialists and its allies.
The Indian state’s stand, joining the big power chorus against Iran’s nuclear program, is utterly hypocritical and shameful. India itself had till recently been the target of the policy of nuclear discrimination, and was at the receiving end of big power sanctions and disapproval for having gone ahead and developed its nuclear program.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 12th Dec 2008
Following the Mumbai terror attacks of 26-28 November, the degree of US penetration and interference in South Asia is on the rise. Hordes of US intelligence forces have entrenched themselves in India, in the name of helping to investigate terrorism.
Seven years after the US imperialist-led invasion of Afghanistan, the top British military commander in Afghanistan has gone on record saying that they cannot win the war in Afghanistan and that their military strategy is “doomed to defeat”.
The result of the ambitions of Indian bourgeoisie is that increasingly, the seas around our country are getting militarized, and the warships of powers which have no business to be here, are prowling around these seas. The warships of the US imperialists have been looking for a port of call, a port of refueling in this region for a long time.
What this shows is that being an ally or “partner” of US imperialism offers no protection against the depradations of this rampaging superpower. At this time, various elements in the Indian ruling circles are crowing about the Indian state's increasing closeness to the US.
The passage of legislation in the US Congress on May 24 for supplementary unconditional funding by which the Bush administration sought to continue the war in Iraq had a significant impact on the anti-war movement which has been consistently protesting the war.

According to news reports, the report of the weapons inspectors team on Iraq has been seized by the US. The US forcibly took over the arms report on Iraq from the UN Security Council President, and says that it will not be shown to the non-permanent non-nuclear members of the Security Council. (The Hindu, December 10, 2002).
The United States and its allies are using the pretext of their "war against terrorism" to try, gain and extend their foothold in the internal affairs of various Asian countries, and especially to extend control over military, intelligence and other important sectors.
Following reports of an alleged American intelligence information that Pakistan has been collaborating with North Korea on nuclear technology and armaments, the Indian government has demanded that the US should send international weapons inspectors into Pakistan.
The US imperialists have, for the last few weeks, been forcing the UN and all other countries to accept their demand for legitimizing aggression on Iraq. This most unwarranted aggression is part of the US imperialist drive to assert their authority over Asia and the world.
"War against terrorism" is a war for the American conquest of Asia!
Statement of Communist Ghadar Party of India, June 12, 2002
Everyone can see that US imperialist interference and intervention in South Asia is rising. Every week, some political or military representative or envoy of the United States or Britain is visiting India and Pakistan these days.
In the period following the end of the Cold War, world imperialism, particularly the Anglo American imperialists, have launched a concerted attack against what are being referred to as "forces of Islamic fundamentalism". After the events of September 11, 2001 and the launching of the "global war against terrorism", this campaign has been further stepped up.
The massacre of innocent men, women and children in Kaluchak, Jammu, has been the signal for the Vajpayee government to raise war hysteria to a fever pitch and to step up war preparations against Pakistan. Hurriyat leader Abdul Ghani Lone was assassinated on precisely the day Shri Vajpayee began his Kashmir tour.
As the attention of the world rivets once again to the Indo-Pak border and the war mobilisation on land, sea and air, as well as the "peace diplomacy" of the Anglo-American and other imperialists, there is need to take stock of various other military and diplomatic developments in recent weeks.
Oppose growing Anglo-American interference in South Asia!
Statement of the CGPI, January 10, 2002
Since the December 13 attack on Parliament, the ruling circles have systematically whipped up war hysteria. Both countries have organised a massive mobilisation of troops and military arsenal all along the international border as well as the LOC.
Statement of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, September 23, 2001
With the act of declaring war against the Taliban government in Afghanistan and demanding unquestioning support to this war from all the states in the name of fighting terrorism, US imperialism has launched a devastating attack on the peoples of South Asia and their unity.
Statement of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 19 September 2001
In his public address on television on 14 September, Prime Minister Vajpayee chose to declare his government's "full support" to the new imperialist war being pushed by the U.S. Government in the name of fighting terrorism..
Institutionalising Armed Intervention Will Have Grave Consequences
Freedom loving people all over the world, as well as states which desire peace, must firmly oppose and condemn the dastardly plans of the imperialists to legitimise and institutionalise armed intervention, as also the US plans to renew the arms race.
