Indian socialism

Some shameless promotion for any visitors who are in search of some real Indian socialists of the non-market non state sort. Based in Kolkata.

Interesting up to a point in so far as this grouping had an earlier dialogue and correspondence with the ICT/CWO before moving away from any association with Left Communism and adopting some of the best and worst of the old colonial teachers of the SPGB, though they seem to be more explicitly attached to a form of Marxist decadence theory and some aspects of Marxist crisis theory more common amongst the varieties of Left Communism and their successors than the rest of the companion parties of 'World Socialism'.

If readers are more interested in material relating to the current class struggle and communism in India I'd recommend the 'Gurgaon Workers News' site and their material on libcom.

Yeah, Gurgaon Workers News is great.. I also came across a site called Radical Notes who seem pretty good.. lots of good analysis from South Asia generally.. been meaning to get in touch with them to get them to submit stuff to libcom..

Have posted a useful link (on May 24th) to a recent analysis of the Indian economy in the context of the recent 2019 BJP/Modi win in the general election at the end of this;

Maybe others could add comments on the recent political and class struggle situation in India.

I thought this contribution from an invited 'socialist feminist' speaker at a recent small 'Socialist Resistance' meeting was useful (in the absence of anything else) in providing some background to the recent Indian elections that reinforced my brief comment on the above linked text at #4.

Best ignore the otther articles - mostly the usual leftist rubbish.
