Vocal in Demanding the Release of the Revolutionary Poet Varavara Rao and All Political Prisoners

Vocal in Demanding the Release of the Revolutionary Poet Varavara Rao and All Political Prisoners

While India is reeling with Covid-19, the country’s central and state governments have refused to release an old man from prison. Varavara Rao, a 81 year old revolutionary poet, is in jail on the Bhima Koregaon case. Meanwhile, some inmates of that jail have died due to Covid-19. Prominent personalities of the country and abroad have become vocal in demanding the release of this revolutionary poet. As revolutionary student and youth organisations, we demand the release of Varavara Rao and all political prisoners around the world.

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the victory of the Dalits in the war against the upper caste Peshwas at Bhima Koregaon, Maharashtra, Hindutva forces yet again attacked the people and on 28 September 2018 Varavara Rao, Sudha Bharadwaj, Vernon Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira, Gautam Navlakha were arrested from Delhi, Pune, Faridabad, Mumbai, and Hyderabad on multiple charges. Later Shoma Sen, Anand Teltumbde, Surendra Gadling, Mahesh Raut, Sudhir Dhawale, Rona Wilson and many other social workers, lawyers, poets and professors were arrested as well. They were charged under various unconstitutional laws like Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), sedition and so on.

Also arrested was the 90 percent physically disabled Professor G N Saibaba, who is being held in the small ‘Anda Cell’ of the Nagpur Jail. The jail crucially does not have the infrastructure to keep someone in Saibaba’s condition. As a result, his physical condition is deteriorating day by day. The Indian state is also continuing to target the veteran Maoist theoretical leader Kobad Ghandy by conspiring to block his release from jail on new false charges despite him suffering from cancer.

On 28 May, poet Varavara Rao fell unconscious in jail. He was admitted to J J Hospital in Mumbai. Although his condition was just slightly stable, he was brought back to jail on 1 June. Varavara Rao’s family was not allowed to visit the hospital. They didn’t even get a chance to talk to the poet on the phone. In this situation, Varavara Rao’s wife applied for bail in the NIA court but that application was rejected. Although article 21 of the Indian Constitution guarantees the right to life even if a citizen is imprisoned. On June 26, the NIA court again rejected the bail plea of Varavara Rao regarding illness. Varavara Rao has since contracted Covid-19 which in his current condition could prove to be fatal.

We have seen that in India different national and local parties make different promises during elections, but there is little difference between them in terms of anti-people policies and anti-people laws like UAPA, sedition etc. Almost all parties have been using these laws to suppress dissent. However, in spite of this repressive policy of the state, the protests and movements of workers, peasants, students and social workers in different parts of India have not stopped. And this is why the ruling class fears even the elderly Varavara Rao, or the physically challenged Professor Saibaba. That is why they have to be kept in jail even during the coronavirus crisis.

In contrast to the increasingly fascistic old Indian state, at least 100 leading intellectuals in the world, such as Noam Chomsky, Homi K Bhabha, Partha Chatterjee and Gerald Horne have written letters to the President and Chief Justice of India demanding the release of Varavara Rao. 375 prominent personalities of India including Amol Palekar, Shabana Azmi, Shankha Ghosh, Aparna Sen, Kaushik Sen have written an open letter to the Central Government of India.

Meanwhile, recently 14 Indian MPs wrote a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray requesting that the revolutionary poet Varavara Rao be transferred from Taloja Jail in to a hospital. Several inmates have already died of coronavirus in that jail. Officially, the number of Covid-19 confirmed cases in India is about half a million, more than 16,000 died. Almost every day new records of infections and deaths are being set.

The Indian government is putting at risk the lives of Varavara Rao and others, who have been detained in attempts to demobilise and demoralise the people. The Government of India will be held responsible for the death of Varavara Rao or if any of the other political prisoners are infected with the virus during their detention during the coronavirus crisis. We once again demand the Government of India to immediately release the revolutionary poet Varavara Rao and all other political prisoners.

When it comes to the issue of political prisoners in Manipur, there is a large number of people behind bars under draconian acts such as Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), National Security Act (NSA), and Sedition law. Anyone with a voice of dissent, raising his or her voice against the government, the state, people who are demanding their democratic right to self determination are put behind bars. To understand the gravity of the situation, we can cite some newspaper reports. A report published in 2015 in The Hindu, a reputed Indian newspaper, says “Manipur, which accounts to only 0.2 per cent of the country’s population, has registered nearly 65 per cent of cases under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, (UAPA). Out of the 975 cases of UAPA registered in the country in 2014, 630 are from the small north-eastern State of Manipur..” Another report in Times of India published this year indicates that the situation has slightly changed but the number of people charged under UAPA in Manipur still remains high. The report quoting Nation Crime Bureau Records tells us that in the year 2018, people charged under UAPA is 289 in Manipur, this number is higher than that of Kashmir for that year. Though Kashmir is known for state repression, Manipur has faced its own share.

In Manipur some of the Political Prisoners who are in prison, charged with the National Security Act (NSA) or under trial (not yet convicted):

  1. Moirangthem Ranapratap @ Paikhomba Meitei ,KCP, PWG (Marxist Centre). He is currently in Tihaar Central Jail, Delhi (still under trial)
  2. Khoirom Ranjit @ Rocky, Convenor, KCP, PWG (Marxist Centre). He is in Tihaar Central Jail, Delhi, right now. (still under trial)
  3. Sapamcha Kangleipal @ Chiranglen, Manipur Maoist. He is currently in Sajiwa Central Jail, Manipur.
  4. Moirangthem Inaocha @ Premananda, People’s Liberation Army. He is now incarcerated in Sajiwa Central Jail Manipur

In the last few years, hundreds of opposition leaders have gone missing in Bangladesh. Even under this Covid-19 crisis, the suppression of opposition views in Bangladesh has not been stopped. Political activists, including cartoonists, are being imprisoned for criticizing the government during the pandemic. Journalists are being thrown into jail for disclosing information about government irregularities and corruption. Journalist Kajal was abducted and later unjustly arrested and kept in jail.

The fascist Hasina-Awami government is strangling the masses of people with both the right steps not being taken to deal with Covid-19 and the continued repression of dissidents. In this case, the Hasina government is not at all different from the reactionary governments of other countries like the Modi government of India.

In Nepal, the repression of truly revolutionary forces has continued with comrade Uma Bhujel “Shilu” being re-arrested for the tenth time following a court release order. Uma Bhujel “Shilu” is a Central Committee member of the Biplab led Communist Party of Nepal.

The repression of dissident voices has also been seen among the imperialist nations. In Canada, the state’s genocidal policy against the Indigenous nations has intensified as resistance to capitalism and settler-colonialism has increased internally. Most recently this has been seen with the response and aftermath to the RCMP invasion of Wet’suwet’en territory in northern British Columbia. The state has been quick to attack and arrest those defending their lands or those active in the blockades called in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en nation in order to deal a blow to the Canadian state’s economy.

DECLARATION OF AFFINITY WITH THE MER-RSM

DECLARATION OF AFFINITY WITH THE MER-RSM

On Thursday, June 25, the 7 members of the Hants Revolutionary Study Group voted in a resolution to apply the Mandate of Revolutionary Student Movement (MER-RSM). Based on our understanding of the Mandate, and our shared principles of revolutionary Communism, we ask the Coordinating Committee to accept us as a formal MER-RSM section under the name of Revolutionary Student Movement – Nova Scotia-Mi’Kma’Ki (RSM – NS/MK).

We believe in the cause of bringing about proletarian revolution, and feel that the RSM offers a network of supportive comrades and organizers capable of guiding our small group in applying the Mass Line towards that horizon.

Our immediate goals are to begin reading sessions of the introductory course, conduct social investigation, and launch a Serve The People food program. In addition to our current Marxist book exchange. Through proper application of the Mass Line and propaganda campaigns, we hope to grow our ranks of educated and dedicated cadre, capable of inspiring others, and forming mass organizations to pull in the advanced and intermediate workers in our surrounding communities. It would be our eventual long-term goal to establish a PCR-RCP organizing committee to further establish a militant base here in the Maritimes.

Long live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism! People’s War until Communism!

The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways;

the point, however, is to change it.”

An Enemy of the People in Vancouver

Known fascist, Donald Smith can regularly be seen in so-called “Vancouver” at pro-Indigenous and pro-LGBTQ2S events documenting attenders and offering fake interviews in order to doxx attenders to organizations such as the Soldiers of Odin and Proud Boys. Fascists such as Smith must be exposed to the people for the safety of the people. Smith is an enemy of all anti-fascists, LGBTQ2S and Indigenous activists and the people. Thus, fascists like Smith must be exposed!
Oppose fascism! Join the Revolutionary Student Movement in Anti-Fascist struggle!

China Under the Covid-19 Epidemic

The following document has been sent to the RSM from an underground revolutionary communist organization in China.

In April 2020, although the epidemic in most countries has still not been effectively controlled, the epidemic in China has gradually stabilized. Hence in the recent period of time, the so-called “China achievements”, “China road”, “China model” and other terms began to clamor by the drummer of Chinese imperialism, but is it really the so-called “Chinese system” that lets China take the lead out of the epidemic? And, is it really the spirit of “serving the people” of the Chinese authorities that ended the epidemic more quickly? Indeed, the overcoming of the epidemic cannot be achieved without the command of the Chinese authorities, but can it be concluded from this that the Chinese system has advantages or that the ruling class of the imperialist China really serves the people?

No, never!

In order to overcome a major public safety emergency, what does a country need first? Is it a political system? Obviously not. Before these systems, at least there should be sufficient and mobilizable manpower and material resources. At present, China, as an emerging imperialist country, has abundant resources in its vast land; imperialist China has the most and best laborers in the world , and most of them have the simple patriotic sentiment and thus like a double-edged swords(Make them fooled by the bourgeoisie); thanks to the construction of the socialist era, imperialist China’s industrial output value also ranks first in the world, and there are all kinds of production lines for various materials. It is the support of strong material forces that will allow China to take the lead in getting out of the epidemic. In contrast, in the old imperialist countries like America etc, due to the capital ’s greed to rapidly multiply themselves, and because of the rate of surplus value of the old imperialist countries has seriously declined, capital has flowed into financial capital, which has led to large-scale deindustrialization, and manufacturing has been relocated abroad, How can the material power that can be mobilized in time be sufficient under these circumstances? China has not yet undergone large-scale deindustrialization, largely because China’s domestic labor is still cheap enough to support the capitalists’ high surplus value rate.

That there is enough material power to mobilize can only show that China is an emerging imperialist country, which is not so decayed compared with the old imperialist countries, and it can never explain anything else. Moreover, China’s better “anti-epidemic” performance is also based on the state monopoly bourgeoisie using the name of socialism to deceive the public and using the truncheons to brutally suppress the workers’ movement. Comparing the “good performance” on anti-epidemic of China with the “bad performance” of the old imperialist countries is actually the same as comparing the “good performance” of the revisionist Soviet Union in the Chernobyl nuclear accident with the “bad performance” of Japan in the Fukushima nuclear accident. Revisionist USSR’s “good performance” in the Chernobyl nuclear accident could not conceal the essence of his social imperialism. Similarly, the essence of china imperialism cannot be covered up by the “good performance” in anti-epidemic.

Can China’s political system be affirmed by China’s better performance in this epidemic? The answer is obviously no. From the beginning, the bourgeois bureaucrats punished the “whistler” of the epidemic as a rumor; later, as the epidemic continued to expand, they were only squeezing out a few words like “preventable and controllable”; time to tackle the epidemic, they colluded with some commercial capitalists like sewage and stench to monopolize the food supply to obtain excess profits when providing basic living materials to residents.Some people try to break the monopoly but they are caught by the police, some people try to protest, and then the community (the tentacles of the bourgeois bureaucracy reaching the grassroots level) retaliated against them by transporting vegetables in garbage trucks.

What has to be mentioned is that the local Red Cross in Hubei embezzled funds and materials, rejected public hospitals that lacked materials, and sent a lot of materials for the leaders and private hospital. These phenomena are so open and shameless that the masses of the people couldn’t stand it any longer. People spontaneously organized complete supply chains from manufacturers to hospitals, bypassing the Red Cross, and alleviating the urgent need from public hospitals. The spontaneous organization of the “anti-epidemic” behavior by the people is worthy of recognition, but this worthy behavior is recognized as illegal by the Hubei Red Cross and certain government departments. On the surface, it is said not favorable to unified management, but actuallyit is not favorable to take the bribe into the pockets of the bourgeois bureaucrats.

But there will still be people who are not convinced, saying China’s medical system has played an important role, this public medical system is also a China-specific system. Indeed, the public medical system left over during the socialist period has not completely disappeared, and public hospitals still play an important role. But the observation of the problem should not only focus on the present, but also the trend. Over the years, with the “deepening reform” or neo-liberalism retrogression of the Chinese imperialist authorities, everything is moving towards privatization, and the medical industry is no exception. The kind of “Putian” hospital (actually a kind of private hospital) that killed Wei Zexi has mushroomed over the years . In the mean time, public hospitals have been squeezed violently. Trying to bear the trust of the people, on the other hand, the funds have been cut year by year, and talents have been lost year by year. Many doctors in public hospitals are forced to go to private hospitals to make a living. But in this epidemic, private hospitals hardly played any positive role. In addition, social security such as medical treatment is not unique to the so-called “socialist China”. Britain has a National Service System (NHS), but no one thinks that Britain is a socialist country. People who think that China’s public medical system has played an important role, and therefore think that China is a socialist country obviously do not understand what socialism is.

Obviously, the earlier relief of the epidemic simply cannot prove the superiority of the Chinese imperialist political system. Using the earlier relief of the epidemic to show that the imperialist Chinese is fundamentally higher than other old imperialist countries is obviously very incorrect.

Then, Does the positive response of the imperialist Chinese authorities to the epidemic really stem from the idea of serving the people?

China’s relative advantage in combating epidemics is that it has an advantage as a global factory, which is essentially powerful on the relentless squeezing on workers. The purpose of authorities of the imperialist China to control the epidemic was not to “save the people against disaster “, but to maintain the capitalist production order. After all, if the workers were all ill, how would the bourgeoisie exploit the surplus value?

Moreover, before the epidemic had been alleviated, the Chinese imperialist bourgeoisie could not wait to increase the intensity of exploitation and oppression. The construction workers of Leishenshan hospital and Huoshenshan Hospitals, which have made great contributions to the fight against the epidemic, are not only being owed wages, but also be further squeezed in the name of food expenses in isolation, at the same time, the wages that have been owed have even been reduced to 1% of the original level by clever deductions. Some workers protested, but what was exchanged was nothing other than suppression, batons, interrogation, and detention; bonuses and other incomes for medical equipment factory workers were also canceled by their boss in the name of fighting the epidemic; the female doctors and nurses who worked hard to fight the epidemic were used as propaganda tools by the Chinese authorities to show a huge sacrifice, some female nurses were forced to shave their hair in tears, some female medical staff sent to the critical epidemic area are forced to give up the subsidies they deserve; on the one hand, a large amount of medical personnel uses the greatest efforts to fight the epidemic, but on the other hand, they can only get basic wages, even the basic wages are not complete.

Now, at the moment when the epidemic has just eased but has not completely subsided, the resumption of work and production, or the restoration of the capitalist production order, has been put on the agenda by the imperialist Chinese authorities. When promoting the resumption of work production, the imperialist Chinese authorities were extremely generous to the bourgeoisie, giving a lot of subsidies and low-interest loans or even interest-free loans, but did not provide the necessary subsidies to the workers in crisis. At most, it was a beggar-like payment of negligible money . A Chinese Marxist worker group recorded some facts: the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security(MOHRSS) of the authorities very brazenly declared that “enterprise can negotiate to reduce employee wages and arrears of wages”, “When production is suspended, the worker’s vacation will take up all annual leave”, and at the same time Infected with COVID-19 during work will not be counted as work injury and therefore cannot be compensated; Foxconn, a giant manufacturing group that has absorbed a lot of cheap labor, has cut out unquantifiable temporary workers in factories everywhere; an international enterprise group named Hisense was exposed to layoffs of tens of thousands of people; in Shenzhen, an ordinary takeaway worker was beaten by Chengguan (Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau Officers) for no reason, police violence is rampant; BYD, an automobile manufacturing giant, given the salary of 300 yuan per month to many employees, which is only enough for three days of food in China’s first or second tier cities. Finally, according to the analysis of private progressive intellectuals, China’s unemployment rate is nearly 20%.

The records of the Marxism worker group and the analysis of the progressive intellectuals prove that the working people are suffering unprecedented pain, the working people are suffering violent oppression, but the authorities are still concealing the difficulties suffered by the people, using repression and fake propaganda to create a harmonious scene that does not exist . The above facts can fully prove that the tyrannical giant of the monopoly bourgeoisie of the Chinese imperial authorities did not serve the people at all, but served the interests of the bourgeoisie.

In addition, it must be pointed out that the Chinese people first made a huge sacrifice in this epidemic. Because the virus is raging during the traditional Chinese Spring Festival, the medical equipment factory workers who were on vacation, some workers who built Huoshenshan hospital and Leishenshan hospital, doctors and courier delivery personnel and other uncountable laborers have given up their reuniting with family members, gave up their vacation, faced the risk of infection, and returned to their work. Other people who don’t need to resume work urgently follow the arrangement and stay at home for two months under the pressure of unemployment and salary cuts. It was the huge sacrifices made by the Chinese people that brought the epidemic situation under control. This is the organization brought by the simple patriotic sentiment of the Chinese people, which shows that the Chinese people can organize well. The sacrifices made by the Chinese people to control the epidemic are worthy of recognition, The organization shown by the Chinese people in the epidemic proves the huge revolutionary potential they possess.

When the simple patriotic sentiment of the Chinese people are transformed into the revolutionary spirit of the proletariat, the end of the imperialist China will come, the Chinese people with a glorious revolutionary tradition will stand up again and completely defeat the autocratic tyranny of the monopoly bourgeoisie! The Chinese revolutionaries will work together and joins the effort under the guidance of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, and will reach the masses continuously. Let the masses organize for the revolution and eventually drown the reactionaries in the vast ocean of the people’s war!

__________________________________________________________________

2020年的4月,尽管全世界的新冠疫情仍然未能得到有效控制,但中国的疫情已经渐渐稳定下来。于是最近的一段时间内,所谓“中国成就”、“中国道路”、“中国模式”等等名词又开始甚嚣尘上,可是真的是所谓的“中国体制”让中国率先脱离了疫情的吗?以及,真的是中国当局的“为人民服务”精神让疫情更快结束了吗?的确,此次疫情的克服自然离不开中国政府的指挥,可由此可以得出中国体制存在优越性或者中帝统治阶级真的为人民服务吗?

不,绝不!

想要战胜一次重大的突发公众安全事件,一个国家首先需要什么?是体制吗?显然不是,在有这些体制之前,最起码应当存在充足且可以调动的人力物力。目前作为新兴帝国主义国家的中国,在其广阔的土地中有着丰裕的资源;劳动力人口在世界上数一数二,且大多怀着朴素因而如双刃剑般的爱国情感;拜社会主义时代的建设所赐,其工业产值也名列世界第一,各种各样物资的生产线应有尽有,正是雄厚的物质力量的支撑才能让中国率先走出疫情。反观各老牌帝国主义国家,由于资本贪图快速增殖自身,同时也由于老牌帝国主义国家利润率严重下降,因而资本纷纷流入金融资本当中,这导致了大规模的去工业化,制造业被大量迁往国外,这样下去可以及时动员的物质力量怎么可能充足呢?中国还没有大规模地出现去工业化,很大程度上有赖于中国国内的劳动力还足够廉价,能支撑起资本家的高利润率。

有足够的物质力量可调动,本身只能说明中国是一个新兴的帝国主义国家,相较于老牌帝国主义国家来说还不那么腐朽,绝不能说明别的什么。而且,中国的这种比较好的“抗疫”表现也是建立在官僚资产阶级利用社会主义的名号欺骗大众,并对工人运动施以残酷镇压的基础之上。拿中帝抗疫的“好表现”与老牌帝国主义国家的“坏表现”作对比,实际上等于是拿苏修在切尔诺贝利核事故中的“好表现”与日本在福岛核事故当中的“坏表现”相对比,苏修在切尔诺贝利核事故中的“好表现”并不能掩盖其社会帝国主义的本质,因而同样,中帝在抵抗疫情中的“好表现”同样不能掩盖其帝国主义的本质。

中帝的政治体制是否能在因为中国在此次疫情中的较好表现而被肯定呢?这个答案显然是否定的。从一开始,资产阶级官僚们将疫情中的“吹哨人”以造谣论处;后来随着疫情的持续扩大,才别别扭扭地挤出几个“可防可控”来;到了疫情的攻坚阶段,大搞一刀切,在为居民提供基本的生活物质时,与某些商业资本家沆瀣一气,垄断居民的食物供应,谋取超额利润,有人试图打破垄断却被警方抓了起来,有人试图抗议,接着社区(资产阶级官僚伸往基层的触手)通过以垃圾车运蔬菜的方式对他们进行报复。

更不得不提的是湖北当地的红十字会,侵吞善款和物资,将缺乏物资的公立医院拒之门外,将为领导和莆田系医院准备的物资大把大把地送出。以至于人民群众看不下去了,自发组织起从厂家到医院手中的完整的供应链,绕开红十字会,为公立医院缓解了燃眉之急。人民群众的自发组织“抗疫”行为值得肯定,但这种本值得肯定的行为,却被湖北红十字会及某些政府部门认定为非法,表面说是不利于统一管理,实则不利于统一将贿赂收进资产阶级官僚们的腰包。

可仍然会有人不服气,说什么中国的医疗体系发挥了重要作用,这种公立医疗体系同样是中国体制。的确,社会主义时期留下的公立医疗体系并没有完全消失,公立医院仍然发挥着不小作用。但看问题不能只看当下,更要看趋势。这些年来,随着中帝当局的“深化改革”或者说新自由主义式倒退,一切都在朝着私有化大步迈进,医疗行业也不例外。这些年来害死魏泽西的那种“莆田系”医疗(实际上就是私营医疗的一种)正如“雨后春笋”般“拔地而起”,与此同时公立医院遭到了剧烈的挤压,其一方面勉力承载着人民的信任,另一方面经费却年年削减,人才也年年流失,很多本属公立医院的医生为了谋生被迫去了私营医院。而此次疫情中私营医院几乎没有发挥任何积极作用。另外,医疗等的社会保障并不是所谓“社会主义的中国”才有的,英国就有国民医疗服务体系(NHS),但没人认为英国是一个社会主义国家。认为中国的公立医疗体系发挥了重要作用,因而认为中国是社会主义国家的人显然根本不懂什么是社会主义。

显然,疫情的较早缓解根本不能证明中帝的政治体制具有优越性,用疫情较早缓解来说明中帝在根本上高于其他老牌帝国主义国家显然非常不正确。

那么,中帝当局对疫情的积极应对真的是出于为人民服务的思想吗?

中国此次抗击疫情的相对有力,是因为占尽了世界工厂地位的便宜,这本质上是对工人的无情压榨之上的有力。而中帝当局控制疫情的目的,不是什么“救民于水火”,而纯粹就是维护资本主义的生产秩序,毕竟,要是工人、劳动者全都病倒了,资产阶级还怎么剥得剩余价值?

而且,在此前疫情还没有缓解时,中帝资产阶级就迫不及待地加大剥削与压迫的力度了。为抗击疫情作出巨大贡献的雷神山、火神山医院的建设工人,被拖欠工资不算,还要以隔离伙食费的名义进一步压榨,同时被拖欠的工资甚至也遭巧立名目克扣缩减到了原有水平的1%,有部分工人进行了抗议,但换来的不是别的,是镇压,是警棍、讯问与拘留;医疗器材厂工人的奖金以及其他收入,也被老板以抗击疫情的名义取消了;在抗疫一线奋战的女性医生女护士被中帝当局用作宣传工具,一些女护士流着泪地被迫剃掉头发,一些派往重灾区的女医护被迫放弃应得的补助,来表现所谓巨大牺牲;大量医护一方面用最大的努力抗击着疫情,另一方面却只能拿到基本工资,甚至连基本工资也拿不全。

而现在,在疫情刚有缓解但还没有彻底消退的时刻,复工复产,或者说恢复资本主义生产秩序已经被中帝当局提上日程了。在推动复工复产的时候,中帝当局对于资产阶级无比慷慨,给予了大量补助和低息贷款,却不对处境危急的劳动者们提供必须的补助,至多是打发乞丐般发点微不足道的钱了事。一个中国马克思主义工人小组记录了一些事实:当局的人社部非常放肆地宣称“企业可以协商降低员工工资、拖欠工资”,“停产期间,工人所得到的假期将把所有年假占用”,同时在工作时感染新冠肺炎将不计入工伤因而不能得到赔偿;富士康——一个吸收了大量廉价劳动力的巨型制造业集团——在各地工厂裁去了不可计量的临时工;一个名叫海信的国际化企业集团被曝裁员上万人;在深圳,一个普通的外卖人员无故遭到城管的殴打,警察暴力正在泛滥;比亚迪公司这一汽车制造业巨头给部分员工每个月300元人民币的工资,这在中国的一二线城市内至多只够3天的饭钱;最后,根据民间进步人士分析,中国的失业率已近20%。

马克思主义工人小组的记录与进步人士的分析证明,劳动人民正在遭受着前所未有的痛苦,劳动人民正在遭受着剧烈的压迫,但是当局仍在隐瞒人民所遭受的困难,用镇压与虚假宣传营造着不存在的歌舞升平。以上事实完全可以证明,中帝当局这个垄断资产阶级的专制巨人根本不是为人民服务,而是为资产阶级的利益服务。

同时,必须指出的是中国人民首先在此次疫情中付出的巨大牺牲。由于病毒肆虐正值中国的传统节日春节,原本休假的医疗器材厂工人、部分建设火神山雷神山等临时医院的工人、医生以及快递外卖配送员等不可计数的劳动者们义无反顾地放弃与家人的团聚,放弃了自己的休假,冒着被感染的风险,回到了自己的岗位上。而不需要紧急复工的其他群众也听从了安排,顶着失业与降薪的压力呆在家里整整两个月。正是中国人民所付出的巨大牺牲,使得疫情最终得到了控制。这是中国人民的朴素的爱国情怀所带来的组织性,说明中国人民完全可以很好地组织起来。中国人民为控制疫情做出的牺牲值得肯定,中国人民在疫情中表现出的组织性证明着其拥有的巨大革命潜力。

当中国人民的朴素爱国情怀转化成无产阶级的革命精神时,中帝的末日就将来临,有着光荣革命传统的中国人民将再次站起来,将垄断资产阶级的专制暴政彻底打垮!中国的革命者将在马列毛主义指导下各员一层共同奋励,不断深入到群众中去,让广大群众为了革命而组织起来,最终将反动派溺死在人民战争的汪洋大海中!

International Workers’ Day 2020

International Worker’s Day is a day to demonstrate and celebrate the power of the working class. The History of May Day and the significance of May 1st for the working class stems from the late 19th century. In 1886 in Chicago, a general strike began on the first of May for the eight-hour work day. An estimated 30,000-40,000 workers have been estimated to have been on strike and many had filled the streets to demand their labour rights. This general strike occurred on the same day in many cities in the United States and is a key moment in North American and global workers history. The strike, lasting many days, ended with a series of events that led to several injuries and deaths in Chicago, referred to as the Haymarket Affair. At the Second International in 1889, May 1st was chosen as the day to commemorate the Haymarket Affair which had began on May 1st, 1886.

On May 1st, proletarians globally unite in their common struggle for liberation. This often includes demonstrations, strikes, demands for the working class, and celebrations. This year, workers across the world will not necessarily be gathering in light of a serious global pandemic.

This pandemic has resulted in numerous deaths and injuries in Canada and world wide as the capitalist class flounders to maintain profit over basic needs during a capitalist economic crisis. As is typical with capitalist crises, as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on the Canadian economy, it is the working class that suffers the most.

Approach to the crisis

Capitalism is inherently unable to manage crises. The global capitalist economy functions to continually extract a surplus profit and wealth from the labour of the working class. Profit is prioritized over working class needs, wants, and rights and the working class is the majority of the global population. Preventative policy measures that would have prevented the crisis from spreading as much as it did, but that would have slowed down profits, stagnated under an inefficient system and infection rates surged.

Although capitalism has always been incredibly wasteful, food waste by producers has surged in a time of slowed economic growth. A planned economy opposes the nature of capitalism – to profit off of competition through the sale of commodities. If the commodities won’t be sold, it benefits capitalist firms’ profit to destroy or dispose of these resources rather than make them available to the public, as demand to pay for the commodities available would then decrease. Although food shortage is a worry during a pandemic, food stores currently available are being wasted in a completely inefficient system that doesn’t balance production with the needs of the population – but rather, multiple individual firms overproducing in competition for the same revenue market.

Exploitation of the workers

The workers deemed essential and that are mandated to continue working through a pandemic by the Canadian state largely consist of those paid the lowest wages and in the worst of conditions. Workers in the retail, food production, and food service industries are exposed to the general public daily without adequate protections. They are placed in danger by being denied necessary protective equipment and paid sick days. The failure to adequately provide for the needs of these essential workers will only exacerbate the pandemic, further spreading the virus. Despite being labelled as essential by the government in a time of crisis, many of these workers are paid less than a living wage. On the other hand, countless workers in shuttered industries have been laid off with corporations taking no responsibility for the workers they employ in a time of lowered profits. Yet the working class must still come up with the funds to pay for its basic needs. According to Statistics Canada, at least 3.3 million Canadians are either away from work or have had their hours reduced, while nearly one-fifth of businesses have laid off 80% or more of their workers.

Our reality under the capitalist Canadian state can be understood according to the “division of labour,” wherein the effort to maximize profit and create phoney antagonisms within the working class is active. Workers who perform more “menial” forms of labour are given less value than their fellow workers who deal with a product in its final stages of transformation. This latter section of workers can develop into a “labour aristocracy.” The division of labour is thereby broadened and the bourgeoisie tries to deceive that section of the working class into believing that they share right-wing interests in the imperial core. A common turn of phrase in state media to mask wage exploitation is to call the lowest paid “essential” workers frontline heroes while the bourgeoisie and petit bourgeoisie refuse to help them limit transmission of the virus to their families once they come home or provide any other significant changes. Among grocery workers and clerks, we have seen that Personal Support Workers (PSWs) who are in constant contact with immunocompromised people are not given proper PPE, and subsequently, are forced to expose themselves and those under their care to the virus. We also can see this occur on-site in hospitals across the country among doctors, nurses, custodians and so on.

Response by the government

One response by the government has been to institute the insufficient and unnecessarily exclusive Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB). The only purpose of CERB is to keep the exploited classes alive so that they can still be exploited later, but even so it cannot be accessed by undocumented, non-status, and many seasonal workers – workers who’ve earned less than $5,000 in the last year, post-secondary students, and workers who are unemployed or who have reduced hours. Considering the majority of Canadians prior to the pandemic were living on a paycheck-to-paycheck basis, many will be forced further into poverty.  Post-secondary students and recent graduates have been promised by PM Trudeau a taxable benefit similar to the CERB, little additional funding for students with disabilities. The Canadian state aims to incentivize them with a grant that rewards them for volunteer work they perform that helps relieve the effects of COVID-19 on their communities. This is a great example of how the state is tricking the students into associating mutual aid with patriotism and not class solidarity.

Certain provincial governments have also used the pandemic as an excuse to further implement their austerity agenda. The premier of Manitoba, for example, asked post-secondary educational institutions to cut their budgets by 30% in order to free up funds to address the pandemic, despite having also slashed the healthcare budget in previous years and orchestrating the closure of many emergency rooms.

Although the pandemic is not yet under control, some in the government are prematurely calling for an end to the pandemic emergency measures. They seek to grease the gears of the Canadian economy with the blood of the working classes’ most vulnerable members by risking a second wave of COVID-19 infections for fear that the profits of their capitalist benefactors will be further reduced.

Resistance & solidarity in an unprecedented time

Workers have shown their solidarity and strength through organizing to address their collective needs in a time of major crisis. By largely moving towards online forms of discussion for safety purposes, the working class in Canada has engaged in establishing mutual aid networks (some with explicit revolutionary character), discussing the possibility of rent strikes, and distributing propaganda and literature. It is evident that the working class recognizes that solidarity and unity are its source of strength.

Certain sections of the masses have also responded to the pandemic in ways that are backwards or reactionary. There have been protests calling for the reopening of the economy on the basis of the harmful economic effects related to the pandemic lockdown. These protests are misguided, since the damage to the economy is due not to the lockdown itself, which consists largely of necessary measures to prevent the spread of the virus, but due to inefficiencies inherent to a capitalist economy. The hardships that these mostly petty-bourgeois or labour aristocratic masses face are real, but the measures that they propose would only result in more death and hardship. Even worse, some few individuals have been misled by fascist propaganda, spreading false and racist conspiracy theories about the cause of the virus, or even whether it truly exists at all. In the US, far-right anti-vaccination groups have staged demonstrations against the pandemic lockdown, while in Europe cell phone towers have been sabotaged by those who wrongly think that COVID-19 is caused by the installation of 5G towers.

Faced with the myriad contradictory ideas of the masses, the role of revolutionary communists is to apply the mass line, working to strengthen the organizational and political unity of the working classes, and bring them in direct confrontation with their capitalist enemies.

In our context this means:

  • Understanding the struggles and demands of the proletariat, applying a mass line analysis, and consolidating these demands into actionable forms of mass work to advance proletarian interests.
  • Generating proletarian propaganda to combat capitalist and reactionary news outlets.
  • Organizing strong tenants unions to wield rent strikes against landlords.
  • Encouraging mutual aid (but preventing its degeneration into mere bourgeois charity) by revealing the failure of the capitalist system to provide for the needs of the working class, and using mutual aid networks to build further resistance.
  • Isolating and exposing as harmful those sections of the masses who call for unsafe premature opening of the economy.
  • Combating those who seek to mislead the masses.
