Oppose US Decision to Recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel : Support National Struggle of Palestinians
US President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel makes US open partner in the Zionist crimes against Palestinians. The decision goes against several UN resolutions on Jerusalem and is a clear reversal of US stand on two state solution of conflict between Zionist Israel and Palestinians. The decision has been condemned by most of the countries and the people around the world. US Admn. is facing total isolation on the issue in the world.
Trump is a representative of the most reactionary sections of the US ruling bourgeoisie. He had tapped into the anger of the working people of America only to push reactionary, racist white supremacist and anti-people agenda. In this he is backed by the big capitalist supporters of Israel, the Jewish lobby, in USA.
While Govt. of Israel has obviously welcomed Trump’s move. Complicit in this move are rulers of Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain who are forging close ties with Israel to save their undemocratic anti-people rule. This is an offensive of Trump Admn. in league with rulers of Israel and Saudi Arabia. They have been trying to force Palestinians to come to an agreement with Israel giving their national rights and forgoing their national aspirations.… Read More

Five years down from 16th December 2012 and the subsequent struggle highlighting the grip of patriarchy over all wings of the State and over society, little has changed. One aspect under the scanner then was the Judiciary. This year there is sufficient reason to use this day to focus on how the courts of India are keeping alive patriarchal chains on women while even robbing women of hard won rights. On December 16th this year, we should highlight the role of judiciary in defending and perpetuating the patriarchy in the society.
There are examples galore of the way judges at different courts at different levels pass remarks justifying dowry, explaining away beating up of wives by husbands as “correction”, commenting on “misuse of laws” by women to terrorize the in laws and husbands. Women activists in every state can find examples galore of such experiences in the various lower courts in their states and at the level of the High courts. But it is important to see the example set by the highest Court in this regard, because it is followed by the lower judiciary.
Over the past three years, there has been focus on the Supreme Court’s restraint on immediate arrests under Section 498A.… Read More
