The Communist Party of India declared that the police attack towards anti-sterlite protestors in Tuticorin is 'State sponsored terrorism'.

On 22nd May, in Tuticorin, a coastal district of the state of Tamil Nadu, a peaceful protest against the Sterlite Copper Plant was subjected to a murderous police attack. The police fired at the protesters killing 13 and injuring more than a 100 people. Hundreds are also reported missing. The people were demanding clean air for breathing and clean water for drinking and irrigation. Six days after the incident the Tamil Nadu Government ordered ‘permanent closure’ of the plant based on the Water Act of 1974 on behalf of 'larger public interest'. The plant was sealed by the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board whose Chief Minister said, “we have taken this decision as a mark of respect t the feelings of the people”. 

The World Federation of Trade Unions representing more than 92 million workers around the world fully supports its affiliated organisation in South Africa: National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) in its demands for universal health coverage.

From 1945, the WFTU during its first steps put in the front-line of its demands the universal health coverage, the social security for all the workers. Its affiliates in every country of the world were and are considering the free and public health system as a social right and are struggling for its implementation by any means.

The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing more than 92 million workers in 126 countries of the 5 continents strongly condemns the murdering of at least 12 protesters who demanded the closure of the copper smelter of «Sterlite Copper» company. The company is an affiliate of the British monopoly “Vedanta” in southern India.

The meeting of the Monitoring Committee of Asia Pacific Regional Office of the World Federation of Trade Unions held at Colombo, Srilanka on 22-5-2018 extends its total support and solidarity with the proposed 48 Hours Continuous Strike on 30th and 31st May, 2018 by one million bank employees in India under the banner of United Forum of Bank Unions demanding resolution of Charter of Demands for better wages and improvements in service conditions.

No condemnation is strong enough to denounce the barbarity which West Bengal is witnessing today to ensure TMC's project of capturing cent per cent of elected panchayat bodies of the state.  Despite the forcible capture of 34 per cent of the seats uncontested, the heinous attempts to capture the rest are in full swing.

The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity to the people of India who is suffering by the severe weather conditions prevailing in several areas of India. High-speed winds, storms and lightning devastated many villages, bringing down homes and leaving hundreds dead and injured.

Karl Marx was an eminent philosopher, renowned economist, historian, journalist, political ideologue, revolutionary socialist, great intellectual and multilingual expert. His birthday bicentenary is being celebrated in a spectacular way all over the world from May 5, 2018 onwards throughout the year.

Karl Marx obtained law degree and simultaneously studied Hegelian philosophy.

Marx was a great scientific thinker, yet there are some pseudo intellectuals who have distorted Marxism. They have written books to prove that Marxism is no more relevant in the contemporary world. Their main aim is to continue with the status quo and serve the existing bourgeois society.

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

The $ 16 billion acquisition by international e-commerce retail giant Walmart of Indian e-retail Flipkart facilitates the backdoor entry of foreign capital to take over India’s huge multi-crore retail trade sector.

The proposal to allow FDI in India’s multi-brand retail sector was stoutly opposed by the Left parties. When in opposition, the BJP also opposed this move. Now in government, the BJP is facilitating the entry of foreign capital through the e-commerce route. This would completely destroy India’s retail trade that employs more than four crore people directly. Nearly one-fifth of our population is dependent on their earnings.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) expresses its opposition to the agreement (MOU) arrived at  between the Ministry of Tourism, Ministry of Culture and the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) and Dalmia Bharat Limited which virtually hands over the iconic Red Fort in Delhi to the Dalmia group for a period of five years in exchange for a  payment of 25 crores.
