August 5 2023 will mark 100 years since the birth of prominent Communist leader of India, Shibdas Ghosh, who was the Founder General Secretary of the Socialist Unity Centre of India – Communist. In order to honour its founder-leader, SUCI (Communist) has organised a year-long centenary celebration.

“All revolutionaries throughout the world, who long for emancipation from the yoke of ruthless capitalist exploitation need to not only be acquainted with the teachings of Shibdas Ghosh but assimilate the essence of it to successfully apply Marxian science in their respective soils. Hence, the Central Committee of the SUCI (Communist) has decided to observe the centenary year in a befitting way, through various programmes, with a view to disseminating Comrade Shibdas Ghosh,” says a press release by SUCI.

Addressing a press conference in New Delhi recently Satyawan, a Polit Bureau member of SUCI said that while observing the centenary, the SUCI cadre would also organise events to “enrich the understanding of Marxism-Leninism in the contemporary world” and that the SUCI would organise popular movements opposing various decisions taken by the Indian government. Notably, the SUCI, along with Samyukta Kisan Morcha, the flagship organisation of farmers’ unions across India, will recommence the highly successful farmers’ agitation that had forced the government to withdraw and kill the three anti-farm laws pushed through the Parliament without any discussions in 2020.

“There is an on-going exploitation on public by the government and the capitalist in the sectors of politics, economics, cultural, health and society. To relieve the public from this exploitation, good public movement is required. We have to focus on three things — a  right movement on the basis of right revolution thinking, second, to unite labour & farmers and then third, to launch a struggle,” Satyawan tells Media India Group.

Farmers’ Protests to Resume

“During the farmers’ movement that the organisation had held last year, farmers had come forward and had stood united despite the different castes, creed or religions that they belonged to. Fearing this unity and in order to break it, the government had tried to incite the farmers to differentiate and fight among themselves with regard to their social status,” Satyawan tells Media India Group.

On the resumption of the farmers’ protest, Satyawan says that the National Working Group of AIKSCC had met in New Delhi on July 25 to decide to extend full support to all programs announced by Samyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM), such as nationwide district-level conferences to build-up the agitation for legal right of Minimum Support Price and other demands. Another decision taken was to hold a road blockade  Chakka Jaam on 31st July and meetings bringing together farmers and soldiers all over India to pressure the government.

“My organisation is fighting alongside Samyukta Kisan Morcha to make the farmers’ protest dynamic. We are optimistic that we will be successful sooner or later. You will get good news. On 20th September a national convention is being called by our organisation in Delhi. We will update about it,” says Satyawan, adding, “this time the borders will not be the centre, but in all over the country. By joint movement of farmers, youth, women. As long as public and society don’t come together, our protest or movement will continue.”
