सांप्रदायिक और कॉर्पोरेट फासीवाद के दौर में अम्बेडकर को याद करना

 
जब हम डॉ. अम्बेडकर की 126 जयन्ती मनाने जा रहे हैं तो उसी समय मोदी की केन्द्र सरकार और राज्य सरकारों ने डॉ. अम्बेडकर के ‘शिक्षित बनो, संघर्ष करो, संगठित हो’ के नारे पर हमला बोला हुआ है, बल्कि इन सरकारों का लक्ष्य है ‘वंचित करो, उत्पीड़न करो, अलगाव में डालो’!!
हम देख रहे हैं कि यूजीसी नोटिफिकेशन 2016 के बहाने जेएनयू व अन्य विश्वविद्यालयों में एमफिल/पीएचडी में नामांकन की सीटों में भारी कटौती की जा रही है. दिल्ली विश्वविद्यालय में स्ववित्त पोषित ‘स्वायत्त’ कॉलेजों के लिए रास्ता साफ किया जा …

Dadri… Shimla….Latehar…Una…Jaipur…and now Alwar: Lynching, Slaughtering Humans In The Name Of ‘Protecting Cows’

Make no mistake – the cow is the excuse, it is Muslims and Dalits that are the target.
The Hindu driver at Alwar was allowed to escape, while the 5 Muslims were thrashed. So this was no spontaneous outrage sparked by concern for cows – it was a cold-blooded murderous communal attack.
The Alwar victim was a dairy farmer, had had receipts of cow purchase and licenses for cattle transportation – this proves ‘cow protection’ was a mere pretext.
What the country is witnessing daily is nothing but the Long-Held RSS’ Theory of …

Identifying the Foundations of Women’s Oppression, Charting the Course of Struggles for Liberation

Women workers in garment and other factories in the USA in 1909 first observed ‘Women’s Day’ with huge demonstrations to demand labour laws (including the 8-hour working day) and the right to vote for women. In 1910, the Second International Conference of Working Women at Copenhagen accepted German socialist …
