So like 200 million workers across India have taken to the streets in a general strike, demanding labour justice and opposing the No Shit Straight Up Fascist BJP, darling of western imperialist shills. The BJP are the folks who made a shrine to Ghandi's assassin, suppress voters with armed gangs, and have rewritten the history books to erase Communist heroes of India's liberation from the british empire, or brazenly claim that they were actually Hindutva nationalists the whole time (they were not!!)

The CPI-ML's twitter account is providing some rad highlights:

Let's talk India.

I've thought for a while now that the next big country to have a revolution will probably be India due to material conditions and movement development. Hopefully this is a turning point.

people angry it is barely gaining any coverage in the west but come on, imagine the effete journalists of the guardian or cnn trying to compute 200 million indian MLs going on strike tho lol

This is more workers on strike than the entire existing labor force of the united states and the UK, combined.

Unfortunately none of them empty trashcans in the nearest US national park, so all the reporters currently have loftier priorities

i checked all the local papers in the city i grew up in and even they don't care, most see it as a mild inconvenience. i hope the strikers win what they want strategically but they've been pretty comprehensively worked around
