This parasitic and rotten system is a burden on the working class!

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.

Unite and fight for a State that would guarantee prosperity and protection for all!

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 5th December, 2015

The demolition of Babri Masjid exposed the fact that communalism and communal violence had become an unwritten policy of the Indian State.  It is not the religious beliefs of anyone that is to blame.  It is the ruling class and its method of rule that is responsible.

The dispute over Babri Masjid was deliberately reignited by the Indian big bourgeoisie to divide the people on communal lines.  The aim was to disrupt and paralyze the struggles of the working class and people against the all sided attacks being launched on their rights, as well as to suppress dissident factions within the bourgeois class.

Communal violence and incitement of competing sectarian agitations based on religion and caste were all deployed to create a climate of mayhem and chaos, within which the unpopular policy changes could be pushed through.  This is the real explanation for the rapid escalation of communal and sectarian violence in the nineties.

Blame the central state and its policy for the terror and insecurity faced by the peoples of the North East!

Submitted by cgpiadmin on Sun, 02/09/2012 - 01:20

Army rule is the reality in most parts of the North East.  For the peoples of the North-East, the departure of the British in 1947 did not mean the end of colonial rule.  The region has been ruled virtually as a colony from New Delhi right from that time.  When the peoples of this region have demanded their national and political rights, they have been beaten down ruthlessly, and called agents of foreign powers.

Having been at the receiving end of repression and terror at the hands of the central state and its agencies for so many decades, it is natural that the peoples of this region do not trust the central leaders, who are today promising protection for North-Eastern peoples, declaring they are all Indians.  Many of them can see that this is actually a veiled threat; they are being told to better be loyal to the Indian Union and its policy, if they want to feel safe.

Ghadar jaari hai!

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!
