Singur: Peasants’ résistance rises while CPM resorts to lies and double speak to defend Tatas

People’s anger has re-ignited the fight back in Singur against forcible land acquisition by CPM led Govt. It is also exposing the CPM’s double speak on a variety of issues related to acquisition by Govt. of agricultural land to hand over to corporates and MNCs.

West Bengal : Massive Rally Against US Aggressors

Thirteen political parties and organizations in West Bengal, including CPI(ML)-New Democracy, gave a call for a protest march to US Embassy on 19th December 2002 to oppose the US conspiracy to attack Iraq. Thousands of people from the province, with banners, posters and placards, gathered at the Subodh Mallik Square in Kolkata at 2 p.m. on that day and started marching towards the US Embassy raising slogans against the war campaign – “No to US Aggression on Iraq”, “Down with the universal terrorists, the Bush-Blair Clique”, “Not oil at the cost of blood, not war for oil” etc.

The marchers were, however, blocked at the US Information Centre in the city, way ahead of the destination, by the faithful dogs of the ‘Left’ Front Govt. of the state. And naturally so. Though at times resorting to anti-US imperialism rhetoric, the ‘Left’ Front was prompt in taking up the ‘immediate’ task of providing fool-proof protection and security to US imperialism and its official ‘control room’ in Kolkata, the US Embassy and deployed a huge police force for the purpose.… Read More

Delhi : Convention Against US Attack

The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)-New Democracy and its like minded organizations, the All India People’s Resistance Forum and the Revolutionary Unity Centre, Punjab, held an impressive protest-demonstration at Jalandhar on 30th January 2003 against US war-threats and aggression on Iraq. Before the commencement of protest demonstration, a mass meeting was held in Desh Bhagat Yadgar Hall Complex where speakers made seething attacks on US by saying that being the sole superpower in the world, US imperialism wishes to get license for forcing governments of its liking throughout the world by use of military might.

Calling upon the people to come forward against the war-designs and plots of US, the speakers asserted that aggression against Iraq will be naked violations of human rights, international law and the principles of UN itself. They stated that there is no danger of war against USA and no threat to world peace from Iraq. Rather US war-designs are clearly threatening world peace today.

Com. Ajmer Singh, a senior provincial leader of CPI(ML)-New Democracy, said US imperialism, in the name of “war against terrorism”, is playing the game of making weak countries submit before it. Com. Ajmer Singh alleged that Mr. Bush wishes to be a candidate for presidency next time by getting applause through such actions.… Read More
