Statement of the Delhi Regional Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 1 May 2016
Comrades, Red Salute on May Day!
Over 130 years ago the working class heralded the struggle for their rights as workers demanded eight hours working day, with eight hours of rest and another eight to be dedicated to fulfilling their duties towards the society. To crush the struggle of the working class of Chicago the government of the capitalist imprisoned the workers, condemned them to harsh punishment and tortured them in various ways, including sending them to the gallows. The police and security forces of the capitalists fired upon them, killing hundreds of workers. The flag in the hands of the workers was drenched in their blood and this became the symbol of their struggle against the capitalists class.
Mayday was observed jointly by working class organisations in cities and industrial areas throughout the country. Workers across various industries and trades joined the rallies. The working class honoured its martyrs with the hoisting of the red flag in their factories and residential colonies. Rallies, marches and meetings were organized in various places.

Unite against the capitalist system of maximum loot and plunder!

May Day Call of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 2011
Replacing one party or coalition by another in the existing capitalist democracy does not lead to any advance for the toiling masses. It does not change the capitalist orientation of the economy. It does not end the loot and plunder of our land and labour, nor the attacks on our rights. The only way the situation will change is if we who produce the wealth of India become her masters. Then and only then can we reorient the economy to provide prosperity and protection for all.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 20th March, 2011
We communsts must use this opportunity to present the real solution to the burning problems confronting the people. We must popularise the program for establishing a new system, based on new foundations, and mobilise the workers and peasants to take up this program as their own.
On May 1, 2010, workers with red flags in their hands, and fists raised, participated in May Day rallies all across our country. Workers from different branches of the economy participated in these actions. The call of our Party to the working class to unite around one program of the working class was enthusiastically received, as well as taken up, by workers.
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.
May Day 2010 was marked by demonstrations and rallies of tens of thousands of workers in countries all over the world. Workers protested against the attacks by the capitalists on their jobs, wages and working conditions. They denounced their governments for defending the interests of the capitalists and vowed to intensify the struggle in defence of the rights of the working people. They raised their voice against imperialist war and for solidarity of the working people of all countries.
Sir, I would like to join the CC of the CGPI in extending warm greetings to the working class on May Day 2010 and would like to second its call in its statement entitled “Employment, food, shelter; education, health care; water and electricity are our Rights!’’
The all India general strike has been called to resolutely oppose the course of enriching the capitalist minority by impoverishing the toiling majority. It has been called to assert the rights that belong to workers, peasants and other toiling people who create the wealth of India.
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.
The Report to the Fifth Congress of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, presented by Comrade Lal Singh, General Secretary of the CGPI, on behalf of its Central Committee, was discussed and adopted by the Fifth Congress of the CGPI, held in November 2016. By decision of the Fifth Congress, this report has been edited for publication.
The first part of this pamphlet is an analysis of facts and phenomena to identify and expose the real aims behind the Note Ban. The second part is devoted to a critical appraisal of the government’s claims that it will reduce inequality, corruption and terrorism. The third part is what Communist Ghadar Party believes is the real solution to these problems and the immediate program of action towards that solution.
Unite around the program to reconstitute the Indian Republic and reorient the economy to ensure prosperity and protection for all!
There 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.
