Remembering Kizhvenmani Martyrs

For the toiling and oppressed masses 25th December is Kizhvenmani martyrs' day. It was 50 years ago on 25th December 1968 the upper caste landlords in Kizhvenmani, TN, attacked the dalit families who were struggling against feudal suppression and for wage demands. 44 of them including children, women and the aged were massacred by the landlords. Let us remember these martyrs and intensify the struggle against the corporate raj, Manuvadi caste system and the saffron fascist forces to achieve social change.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
