Jharkhand

The Jharkhand Party Office organized a flag hoisting on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the great November Revolution. The great martyrs were remembered and honoured after the flag hoisting and it was resolved to take inspiration from the Russian Revolution to fight the present fascist-feudal-communal pro-corporate regime and its policies.

Meetings were also held at Garhwa, Dhanbad, Shyampur, Bagodar (Giridih District), Jainagar (Koderma), and Hazaribagh. The speakers at the meeting said that the Russian Revolution shook the entire imperialist and capitalist world one hundred years ago. This was the revolution that inspired Bhagat Singh and a multitude of revolutionaries across the world. Today it is a source of inspiration for us to carry forward the struggle of farmers and workers in Jharkhand against corporate land loot, communalism and fascism. A memorandum with 5 demands was submitted to the officials at Sirka Project (Hazaribagh), with the warning that if the Raghubar government did not end its anti-people policies the protest would be sharpened further.

Meetings to commemorate the centenary of the Russian revolution were also held at Bokaro Steel City, Kathara, Gomiya, and Devri (Giridih District).
