KERALA: ‘Women Wall’ on New Year Day

KERALA will form ‘Vanitha Mathil’ (Women Wall) on January 1, 2019. This will be formed by over 176 renaissance organisations of Kerala. The ‘women wall’ will be formed from Kasaragod to Thiruvananthapuram, which is a distance of over 600 km.  A decision in this regard was taken in a meeting which was chaired by the chief minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan. This decision was taken in the backdrop of violence unleashed by the Sangh Parivar outfits after the decision of the Supreme Court to allow women of all ages to enter the Sabarimala temple.

The Movement on Old Pension Scheme and the Politics of UPA and NDA

THE new economic policy initiated by the Narsimha Rao government in 1991 has widened the gap between the rich and the poor manifold. The liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation policies have hit the basic services like health, education hard and made them highly expensive. The successive governments at the centre led by the Congress and the BJP have been boasting about the demographic dividends but both have betrayed the youth of the country by compelling them to work under temporary conditions.

Slum Dwellers Conference in West Bengal

MOVEMENT and mobilisation of slum dwellers in West Bengal is gaining momentum. This has been reflected in second state conference of Paschim Banga Basti Unnayan Samity(PBUS)- the largest organisation of slum dwellers in the state. The conference, held on December 1-2, in Kolkata, was preceded by organising slum dwellers at slum, town and district levels. In all 754 slum level committees were formed throughout the state, though, according to leaders of the PBUS, this covers only a part of the actual potential.
