For more than 100 years, the 1st of May has come to symbolise the united struggle of the international working class against the capitalist system. When workers anywhere rally together and raise the red flag on this day – whether at the gates of their factory, on the streets of their cities, or across their countries – they are part of the international army of the proletariat.

An immediate program for the reorientation of the economy; political empowerment of the people; and the democratic renewal of India.

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