May Day celebrated in Mumbai

Hundreds of workers, men and women, gathered at Adarsh Vidyalaya, Shell Colony, Chembur to celebrate Mayday in Mumbai.

The meeting began with songs by youth of Lok Raj Sanghatan (apna jhanda na niche jhukana), which was followed by many progressive songs from a women’s group.

Leaders from various trade unions saluted the leaders who had started the workers movement in India.

The Trade Union Sanyukta Kriti Samiti which has organized the meeting, declared that it would continue to take up the struggles of minimum wages, privatization, contract workers, anganwadi and other issues. It had shown its international solidarity by supporting the struggle of workers across the world.

Other speakers spoke on the present political situation and resolved that whatever the outcome of the elections, the fight for the rights of workers will continue, whether it was the fight against privatization of PSUs or the fight for minimum wages, and against contract system. The speakers pointed out that the first union in India was formed in 1920 and that the next year would be the centenary of AITUC.

The meeting ended with a resolve to increase the struggle for the rights of workers.

The hall resounded with slogans of “Duniya ke Mazdooron ek ho!”, “1 May Mazdoor Divas Zindabad!”, etc. On the dais was also the eighty seven year old Comrade Shette, senior leader of Port and Dock workers. He gave red salute to the martyrs of Jalianwala Bagh, and thanked the women who were in good numbers despite the sweltering heat of May.  He said women and youth contribute in making every event or struggle successful and roared that we should never despair but should continue the fight for our rights.

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.

Manifesto 2014There 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. However, the working class is being prevented from realizing its potential as the leader of all the exploited, and as the grave-digger of capitalism, by those in the communist movement who are spreading harmful illusions and compromising the class struggle.
