Bernard D'Mellow on Naxalbari reviewed by Harsh Thakor


PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THIS VIDEO - BOOK LAUNCH OF INDIA AFTER NAXALBARI : UNFINISHED HISTORY BY BERNARD D'MELLOW

 
HAIL THIS GREAT WORK BY BERNARD D'MELLOW ON INDIA POST-NAXALBARI WHICH WILL CARVE A PERMANENT NICHE AMONG THE BOOKS ON THE IMPACT OF AN EVENT THAT SHAPED THE DESTINY OF INDIA MORE THAN ANYONE 

I recommend everyone to read this classic book TITLED "India-50 years after Naxalbari" by Bernard D'Mellow that most analytically assesses the impact of Naxalbari,the Maoist movement and emergence of Fascism in India

It does ample justice to the genuine revolutionary movements of India particularly that of the Maoists and most illustratively and vividly describes the ruthlessness of capitalism in India and the hypocrisy of secularism and democracy

In great detail he summarizes how dictatorial or autocratic the Indian state has behaved and how the rights of Dalits and minorities have been trampled.

He explains how Fascism can permeate even through the parliamentary system incorporating bourgeois parliamentary institutions of power and political parties.

Arguably there were flaws on his describing India as backward capitalist instead of semi-feudal as well as underestimating potential of Protracted Peoples War.

Nevertheless he has virtually devoted a chapter doing justice to the great achievements of the Maoists and the mass organization sled by them.

Also highlighted the importance of Ambedkar and importance of studying caste movement.

He has revealed great originality in his thinking.A great piece of research from a historical point of view.Professor Manoranjan Mohanty very accurately described how authoritarian the state was becoming when even compared to emergency period and contrasted the Indian and of semi-feudalism landlordism to that of pre-Socialist China.

He also summed up the impact of the Naxalbari movement on all walks of life.

John Mage of Monthly review in great detail explained how 

The Nazis stole the Reichstag soon after gaining power threw parliamentary means and made an analogy with the current BJP govt. and it's ideology.

He narrated the similarity with how the 5 intellectuals were branded as plotting against the prime minister.A well attended meeting for the book release '50 Years after Naxalbari' was launched at Press Club Mumbai.

It was chaired by Stephen Rego ,a former leader of Nuajwan Bharat Sabha in Maharashtra.

It was addressed by Bernard de Mellow,Professor Manoranjan Mohanty and John Mage

It concluded with a good question and answer session.Although only about 70 people attended it was qualitatively an event of great relevance when fascism is at it's helm.

India: United Left's Win in JNU is a Response to the Current Government's Anti-People Actions

Announcing Second Congress of the Welsh Socialist Republican Movement in July 2019.



Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr as part of of our plan to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Anti Investiture protests in Wales  convened the Second Congress of the Welsh Socialist Republican Movement in July 2019.




Populism or Mass Line in  Welsh National Movement  Politics ?

The rise of Left and Right Populism in the Welsh National Movement is a sign of short term political opportunism and not a principled road to Welsh independence.

When we look at the Welsh National Struggle and its leadership  or the broader movement  we increasing see competition of the lowest common denominator – not a raising up of a principled Welsh Independence politics but its debasement.

Being all things to all men and women the core of Populist Politics lowers rather than raises the people's democratic abilities and powers.

In October 2016 at our First Welsh Socialist Republican Congress we called for an education campaign in Wales on the necessity of a Welsh Banking system and a Welsh Bank Act – we called for mass Movement on the Questions of Welsh Water and Land and Acts to protect our Welsh Resources.

A true understanding of these political questions will win people to support Welsh Independence - but work has to be done for people to come to that conclusion.

We have to raise the level of political discourse not lower it.

We have pointed out that Independence like the term Socialism have been emptied of their content by  multiple misuse of these terms and mischievous opportunists exploit this fact especially the new brand of Welsh Fascists.

We took the opportunity in our 2016 Congress to define what we mean by these terms – the loose use of these terms by Populists can make them  mean all things to all people and provide the political base for opportunism of electing people who can do anything they want because we never really defined what they should achieve or stood for in the first place.

If there are no mass movements on Banking, Water and Land in Wales then there is nobody to call to account whatever political representatives are elected under the Independence banner – we do not want free agents or representatives but direct democracy of the people so we can replace opportunists who serve themselves and not the people as soon as they raise their ugly head.

We want Mass Movements and the Mass Line NOT Populism



Jeremy Corbyn Smeared As Anti Semite For Attacking Bankers - The Crazy Anti Corbyn Rhetoric hits new heights and political lows



Democracy and Class Struggle having to defend a social democrat from the British bourgeoisie is a new for us but the Israeli and British Media Campaign against Corbyn reaches such new lows in British politics that we are left with no option.

There is a social fascist wing to the Labour Party but they are the ones trying to destroy Corbyn and working night and day with British Establishment and Israel and we cannot remain silent and must expose them and Defend Corbyn.

This attack on Corbyn is a victory for the racist right as it devalues anti semitism as a term - and real anti semites can now emerge from the sewers - these sewers are directly connected to British Pro Israel Media.
