Comrade workers!

Interests of workers versus interests of capitalists

On the surface, it may appear as if all classes of society are united at this time, both in the fight against the novel Coronavirus and in their desire to resume economic activities as soon as possible.  However, beneath the surface, there is an acute conflict between the interests of the working class and the interests of the capitalist class.

From our readers: Letter on migrant workers

I read both your articles on the issue of stranded migrant workers and the SoP that has been issued by the Government of India. The analysis presented in the first article “Indian capitalists do not want daily-wage workers to go back to their homes!” is reinforced by the SoP issued by the government on 19th April. In the first place, the capitalists did not want the workers to be allowed to return home for fear of losing the required labour when the lockdown is lifted.

From our readers: On Lenin's birth anniversary

The article presented by Mazdoor Ekta Lehar on the 150th birth anniversary of the great communist leader – Com. V.I. Lenin underscores the relevance of his theories and teachings to the present. Lenin laid bare the truth behind the façade of bourgeois parliamentary democracy, the characteristic features of imperialism and the role of the vanguard Party in organising and making the working class conscious to be the leading force of revolutionary change from capitalism to socialism – and you have explained so well, through this article, how all of these analyses based on theory of Marxism are ever so relevant today.

Stranded daily-wage workers must not be treated like bonded labour!

When the Union government decided to partially relax the lockdown to resume economic activities in parts of the country from 20 April, it issued a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on 19 April for lakhs of workers stranded all over the country. The SOP read, “Due to the spread of COVID-19 virus, workers employed in industry, agriculture, construction and other sectors have moved from their respective places of work, and are housed in relief/shelter camps being run by State/ UT governments.

White alert to the nation

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has demanded that the government take immediate steps to stop violence against doctors.

"The Covid 19 has only made us acutely aware of our helplessness against mindless abuse and violence. Stigma and social boycott are everywhere. Harassment by administration is nothing but violence by the State. Our patience and restraint are signs of strength.Our legitimate needs for safe workplaces have to be met. Abuse and Violence should stop immediately."

IMA warns retaliation if cremations are obstructed

IMA HQ takes serious note of the incidents in Chennai where the cremation of doctors have been obstructed. It is a matter of great concern that these doctors who had died in their line of duty be treated shabbily and in such an uncivilised manner. Even more shocking is the utter helplessness of the state Government in preventing such incidents. If the Governments do not have power to stop such incidents they lose their moral right to govern.

Indian capitalists do not want daily-wage workers to go back to their homes!

 On 14th April more than 2000 workers gathered near Bandra railway station in Mumbai, demanding trains to go home. In the condition of lockdown wherein social- distancing has been mandated by the Central government and various local authorities, this was a considered to be a “major crime” for which the workers were lathi charged. Some were even taken in police custody. The capitalist mass media attacked them viciously as “anti-social” people.

Arresting persons for their ideology is an attack on the Right to Conscience

It is a matter of great concern when people are arrested for their political stands and ideological beliefs.  Recent months have seen thousands of people being arrested for having participated in protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act, which links citizenship with one’s religious belief.  Arrests of people for allegedly spreading “anti-national” ideas are continuing even in the midst of the lockdown to fight coronavirus.

Letter from Dharavi, Mumbai

I stay in Dharavi, Central Mumbai, which is Asia’s biggest slum. Around 7 lakhs people stay here and the majority of them are workers and self employed persons. Many of the people staying here are daily wage workers and their livelihood depends on daily work. Their families are in their native places and they depend on these workers to send money home every month. In Dharavi, these workers stay in close cramped quarters, many to a room. Many rooms have 10 people staying in a 10x10 square foot tenement with poor ventilation. People working in shifts use the beds in succession and that is how they were managing.  After the lockdown was enforced, they are locked in their own houses which was not at all meant to accommodate everyone at the same time. Also the houses in Dharavi are in narrow gullies and it is impossible to walk down these gullies without brushing against another person also walking up the same gully. Moreover they have to use common toilets in unhygienic conditions. What kind of social distancing is possible in these conditions?
