Since India embraced what trade unions call the LPG route to growth (that is liberalization, privatization and globalization) in 1991, the country has seen 16 general strikes. And the 17th all India workers’ strike falls on September 2nd. The last general strike, observed on 2 September 2015, saw participation from nearly 150 million workers – that's half the population of the entire U.S., or more than the combined population of the UK, Canada and Australia. This year, the unions expect a better turnout given the controversial labour policies pursued by the Narendra Modi-led NDA government. ... read full story / add a comment

The recent elections in Nepal appear to spell a heavy retreat for the country’s Maoist movement. After initiating a People’s War in 1996 that lasted ten years and saw it in control of the majority of the countryside, the popular Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) formed a front with mainstream political parties to overthrow the monarchy and institute a democratic republic in the 2006 People’s Movement. Thereafter, the CPN(Maoist) emerged as the largest party in the 2008 Constituent Assembly (CA) elections. ... read full story / add a comment

“La política es una guerra sin efusión de sangre, y la guerra, una política con efusión de sangre”.
Mao Zedong

Si ya es difícil que los medios de (des)información masivos nos hablen de revoluciones cuando no son del color de las naranjas, más complicado es que lo hagan de una que desprende un rojo tan intenso como la nepalí. Situada entre dos de las principales potencias mundiales, India y China, la revolución de este país de 30 millones de habitantes continúa dieciséis años después de que la insurgencia maoísta declarara la guerra a la monarquía en 1996. La revolución prosigue su camino, pero cada vez más como un rompecabezas que no cesa de fragmentarse. Hagamos un poco de memoria... ... read full story / add a comment

Ο Γκάντι ήταν αναρχικός. Ίδρυσε μια φιλοσοφία και ένα κίνημα αυτο-οργάνωσης με το όνομα Swaraj που στόχο είχε την απελευθέρωση των Ινδιών απο τους Βρετανούς και τη δημιουργία μιας αναρχικής αταξικής κοινωνίας. Τελικά ο Γκάντι δολοφονήθηκε και η Ινδία πέρασε στα χέρια τοπικών εξουσιαστών που κράτησαν πολλά χαρακτηριστικά της βρετανικής αποικιοκρατίας. ... read full story / add a comment

An uncounted number of dead bodies between 2,000 and 3,000 are lying all over the places in civilian congested area and the civilians are all struck by a heavy stench of dead bodies, said a volunteer doctor from Mu'l'li-vaaykkaal. "Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has destroyed all medical facilities by targeted attacks, and the SLA was continuing inhuman and indiscriminate attacks on civilians providing only two options, death or surrender," he added. The volunteer doctor himself witnessed more than 100 deaths Saturday morning. All the government doctors and the top officials have fled the shelling. Civilians are in shock at the continuing carnage in Vanni.

Radio, television and newspaper reports of the recent devastating floods in Pakistan are at last beginning to refer to the sheer scale of the problems faced by the victims. Figures for the number of people affected vary widely. According to the Irish Minister of State for Overseas Development Peter Power, reported in today’s (Tuesday) Irish Times, “the United Nations estimated that 40 million people had been left homeless; that eight million of those were in urgent need of immediate food and shelter; and that the combination of rising water and humidity had made a cholera epidemic a real danger”. RTE’s website says “Aid agencies are saying that the world does not fully understand the scale of the flooding disaster ….. One fifth of the country has been hit by severe flooding, with more than 20m people affected…..The UN believes up to 3.5m children are now at risk of contracting water-borne diseases….”.

The need of the hour is to initiate the process of conflict resolution for just and sustainable peace. All the conflicting parties should realise that unending conflict, cross firing and belligerency will ultimately peril their interest only. The civil society movement in the subcontinent in should take care so that all the disputing parties in Kashmir come to reasoning and submit before the process of conflict resolution.
