The Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) declared on July 2, that the Party strongly rejected government’s announcement of increasing Gas Price saying it irrational and anti-people.

Over the last year, allegations that China is interning large numbers of Muslim citizens of Xinjiang province in internment camps have been given enormous media prominence. Reports cite “the UN” as a source for claims that up to a million people could be interned in these camps, a claim repeatedly made by US officials, while US Defence Department Asia chief Randall Schriver has stated that the total could be “closer to three million citizens”.

These claims have been taken up in Britain and used to agitate against China, including by elements on the left. Some of these (such as those who protested at the presence of a Chinese speaker at the Marx Oration) are groups who have always attacked socialist countries but others include anti-racist and anti-Islamophobia campaigners who have a good record of solidarity with the broad left.

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) strongly supports the Hong Kong peoples’ protests against the controversial extradition bill, which would not only repress political, social, and labor activism in the city, but would also endanger political and civil rights of the citizens.

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on June 15, 2019:

India voted in favour of Israel at the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) to deny a 'consultative' status to a Palestinian non-governmental organisation.

They could successfully divert the attention of the people from the real burning issues like unemployment, rural distress and devastating measures like demonetisation and GST.

It is a big irony that Prime Minister instead of expressing apology for the vandalism and demolition of Vidyasagar’s statue, has declared to install a grand statue of Vidyasagar later.
