In this decade of the century, the Indian economy has seen growth rates unprecedented in its history. A "development" modelled according to the dictates of the imperialist international institutions (WB, IMF, WTO etc.), subordinated to the interests of the domestic comprador bureaucratic bourgeoisie and landlords in collusion with imperialist multinationals and big international investors. This “development” has not brought any significant improvement in the living conditions of the vast poor masses of India, 80% of which continue to survive on less than one euro a day.
Instead, all inequalities actually grew and developed. Few tycoons have amassed fabulous wealth. The great Indian groups of which they are at the head, Jindal Mittal and Tata first, have grown to the point of conquering markets, properties and production quotas in the imperialist countries, particularly in the steel sector, where in many countries the Indian groups have become the top producers.
With Narendra Modi, the Indian ruling classes and their imperialist masters found the "strong man" they sought, to try to get out of the relative slowdown due to the global crisis and the growing resistance of the masses to their policies.
With an unprecedented pace and efficiency, in few days the government Modi has approved hundreds of mining and industrial projects, Special Economic Zones. It systematically open to imperialism all sectors of the Indian economy: from defense to insurance to natural resources - everything is for sale. It passed a labor reform that makes dead word rights and achievements of decades struggles of workers around the world, bringing back the clock of history.
This way India enters strongly the world stage of imperialism, while Indian multinationals win positions and an active role, while in the imperialist countries the ties between the Indian multinationals and local bosses consolidate in a relationship of collusion and alliance - still within strife and competition on the world market and through the economic and financial crisis. This way Indian multinationals become for the proletariat of the imperialist countries also an internal enemy and, on the other hand, the multinationals of the imperialist countries fully participate in the super-exploitation of the Indian proletariat and the loot of resources of India.
The proletarians in India and in the world are experiencing the hard way that the bosses, from America, to Europe, to India, are united in pursuing their bloody profits on the skin of the proletariat and the masses. This tie on the economic sphere, results in a new political harmony between the fascist Hindu government of Modi and the modern style fascist governments of imperialist powers. These governments want to walk hand in hand and the Indian government reiterate the international pressures to stop the support to the People's War and the struggle of the Indian people. But the workers are a single class at the international level and they have to tighten strongly their ties of solidarity and struggle.
For this we call for an international day of action at the factories of Indian multinational, Jindal Mittal and Tata in particular, to bring this message, both to the workers and the bosses, in India and the world.
We in this international day appeals to organize a prolonged plan of rallies, speeches, graffiti and all other forms of mobilization and action that are appropriate at the level of each country.
