Brutal Repression Upon Maruti-Suzuki Workers: An Appeal to the International Working Class!

Savage Onslaught Upon the Maruti Workers by the Capitalist State and its Hirelings, Must be Countered by the Working Class Through Mounting A Broad Class Offensive Internationally!

Comrade Workers,

It is crystal clear now that the 31 workers of Maruti-Suzuki at Manesar, Gurgaon, 60 kms from capital New Delhi, have been framed-up in false case, prosecuted and convicted without any trace of evidence to link them up with the crime.

Convicting the workers, the judge says that though none of the workers could be connected to the fire, yet it does not mean that they did not lit it. The prosecutor says that he demanded death penalty for the workers as the incident of 2012 is a scar that has to be wiped out in the backdrop of Modi’s ‘Make in India’ and receding FDI.

In the shocking judgement, the onus to prove themselves innocent has been shifted to the shoulders of the workers, applying the old French law, in derogation of all long settled principles of criminal jurisprudence and adjudication.

Maruti Struggle: Only an International Perspective May Lead to Victory!

- Rajesh Tyagi/ 21.3.2017

What cannot be termed anything except the travesty of justice, 13 of the Maruti Workers in Manesar plant of Maruti have been condemned to life imprisonment while 18 others for lesser terms inside the Jail.

The matter relates to a management provoked brawl inside the Manesar plant of Maruti, where a mercenary army of bouncers was let loose upon the workers after they raised their voice against physical abuse of the workers who dared to protest the sweatshop conditions inside the plant.

The sentences have been passed at the end of a show trial in which prosecution failed miserably to adduce any cogent evidence against any of the accused worker in support of its bald allegations of assault, rioting and arson.

Brutal Class Justice Shows Its Teeth

13 of the Falsely Implicated Maruti Workers condemned for Life, Shorter Terms for 18 Others

- Rajesh Tyagi/ 20.3.2017

Out of the 31 Maruti-Suzuki workers, convicted last week by the Sessions Court at Gurgaon, Haryana, for various offences from rioting to murder, 13 have been condemned for life, 4 for 5 year and rest 14 for 3 years jail terms.

The 148 workers were charged for the offences in 2012 after a management provoked tussle between the workers and the managers inside the Maruti-Suzuki plant in Manesar on July 18 had entailed a fire in which part of the plant was gutted and the HR Manager of the company, Avanish Kumar Dev, got charred to death.

The workers had been agitating since a year for improvement in the sweatshop working conditions inside the Manesar plant, after sidelining a pro-management stooge union. Since then, the struggle of Maruti workers had become the spearhead of a broader workers’ struggle in the Manesar-Dharuhera Industrial belt that is manufacturing hub for major automakers. This struggle was emerging as a challenge not only to the multinational automaker giants but also to the trade unions whose job is to keep the workers under check and harness them to the vital needs of the industry and profits.

All Sitting Governments Overturned in Assembly Polls in Five States in India

-Rajesh Tyagi/ 11.3.2017

In an expected move, the voters in India have overrun the sitting governments, irrespective of their party affiliations, in five states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur.

This overrun is the pinnacle of disenchantment of the masses from the series of right-wing bourgeois governments that have succeeded each other in power since 1947. The anti-incumbency trend is crystal clear and is the only explanation to reversal of all the five sitting governments.

The Peasant Revolt of Telangana and the Stalinist CPI

-Rajesh Tyagi/5.4.2014 
Translated by: Anurag Pathak/ 17.2.2017

In the infinite series of counter-revolutionary crimes, committed by Stalinists in the last century, the Telangana peasant revolt (1948-51), that appeared in the mid of the last century, was an important link. 

First, pushing the unarmed youth and peasants to confront the armed forces of the capitalist state, in the name of 'revolutionary upsurge', and then running away leaving them in the lurch, the opportunist leadership of the CPI, during the Telangana struggle, had been acting directly under Stalin’s command, whose sole aim was to nourish the interests of Kremlin’s nationalist bureaucracy, at all costs.
