Book Launch: No Free Left
Prabir Purkayastha discusses with Vijay Prashad about his new book No Free Left: Future of Indian Communism, published by Leftword Books. Prashad during the discussion explains how in his book he identifies the space that is contiguous to the space of the communist left. This consists of the socialists, the Dalit and the Gandhian movements. He believes, it is impossible to tell the story of Indian Communist Movement without understanding the Gandhian and these other movements. He also talks about how so many of the communist leaders and activists came from their encounters with caste discrimination and oppression. The task of the left is much harder today as the space that these movements occupied has shrunk drastically.
