southern asia / anti-fascism / non-anarchist press Friday December 27, 2019 - 21:58 by Vijay Prashad
Every day and in every part of India, hundreds of thousands of people – mainly young people – gather on the streets to express their anger at the government. Their protests, like those of the protests in Chile, emerged out of one particular grievance but then have cascaded outward. They are angry at the government’s attempt to define citizenship in a narrow and bigoted way; but they are also angry at the arrogance of the government and at the disastrous way in which the government has managed the economy. ... read full story / add a comment

On December 13, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights released a powerful statement that criticized India’s new citizenship law. This “fundamentally discriminatory” Citizenship (Amendment) Act of 2019 would expedite citizenship for persecuted religious minorities from India’s neighboring countries. But in the list of those minorities, it names only Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians. It does not mention Muslims, despite the fact that there have been several important cases of Muslims being persecuted in Pakistan (the Ahmadis), in Afghanistan (the Hazaras), and in Myanmar (the Rohingya). The UN said that not only does this law violate India’s obligations to conventions, treaties, and compacts that it has signed at the global level, but also that it is in violation of its own constitution. ... read full story / add a comment

On August 5, India’s Hindu nationalist government unilaterally revoked the autonomy of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, while flooding the region with troops, imposing a curfew, and shutting down all communications.

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

Interestingly enough only 226 out of the 601 Constituent Assembly seats are directly elected. That is, the majority of seats are elected through a proportional voting system. ... 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.
