From 1945, the WFTU during its first steps put in the front-line of its demands the universal health coverage, the social security for all the workers.

No condemnation is strong enough to denounce the barbarity which West Bengal is witnessing today to ensure TMC's project of capturing cent per cent of elected panchayat bodies of the state.  Despite the forcible capture of 34 per cent of the seats uncontested, the heinous attempts to capture the rest are in full swing.

The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity to the people of India who is suffering by the severe weather conditions prevailing in several areas of India. High-speed winds, storms and lightning devastated many villages, bringing down homes and leaving hundreds dead and injured.

Karl Marx was an eminent philosopher, renowned economist, historian, journalist, political ideologue, revolutionary socialist, great intellectual and multilingual expert. His birthday bicentenary is being celebrated in a spectacular way all over the world from May 5, 2018 onwards throughout the year.

Karl Marx obtained law degree and simultaneously studied Hegelian philosophy.

Marx was a great scientific thinker, yet there are some pseudo intellectuals who have distorted Marxism. They have written books to prove that Marxism is no more relevant in the contemporary world. Their main aim is to continue with the status quo and serve the existing bourgeois society.

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

The $ 16 billion acquisition by international e-commerce retail giant Walmart of Indian e-retail Flipkart facilitates the backdoor entry of foreign capital to take over India’s huge multi-crore retail trade sector.

The proposal to allow FDI in India’s multi-brand retail sector was stoutly opposed by the Left parties. When in opposition, the BJP also opposed this move. Now in government, the BJP is facilitating the entry of foreign capital through the e-commerce route. This would completely destroy India’s retail trade that employs more than four crore people directly. Nearly one-fifth of our population is dependent on their earnings.
