<Ambedkar Jayanti> From LeftWord Books comes a short note on Dr. B. R. Ambedkar - as well as brief comments on our forthcoming book by him, India and Communism, with an introduction by Anand Teltumbde, as well as on the new website, Communists Against Caste (whose Facebook page is at Communists Against Caste): http://mayday.leftword.com/blog/dr-ambedkar-and-communism/.

The point of Dr. Ambedkar’s movement -- as he said in 1927 during the Mahad Satyagraha -- was to fight to ensure that our society ‘treats human beings like human beings’. It should be a basic standard, but - sadly and outrageously - it is not.

The struggle continues.

Jai Bhim, Laal Salaam!
