“Apple, Foxconn and China’s New Working Class: Political Economy of Global Production”
By Professor Mark Selden
When: Monday, November 16, 2015 from 12:00 – 2:00 pm
Where: Orozco Room (712), 66 West 12th Street, New York, 10011
The India China Institute at The New School will be hosting Professor Mark Selden who will present his paper “Apple, Foxconn and China’s New Working Class: Political Economy of Global Production” for the Colloquium on the Economies and Societies of India and China (CESIC).
Professor Sanjay Ruparelia, Associate Professor of Politics, The New School, will serve as a discussant.
Abstract: Apple’s commercial triumph rests in part on the reversal of its original business model from producing computers to outsourcing of its entire consumer electronics production to Asia. Drawing on extensive fieldwork at China’s leading exporter—the Taiwanese-owned Foxconn with 1.4 million workers the largest industrial employer in the world—the power dynamics of the buyer-driven supply chain are analysed as these play out for Chinese workers. Power asymmetries, including technological control and global marketing, assure the dominance of Apple in price setting and the timing of product delivery, resulting in intense pressures and illegal overtime for workers. Responding to the high-pressure production regime, the young generation of Chinese rural migrant workers, now the heart of China’s industrial working class, engages in small-scale labor struggles in the face of combined corporate, official union, and state power. But what is the nature of contemporary Chinese labor protest? China, even by official statistics, is arguably experiencing a larger number of labor conflicts than any country in the world; it also has far more union members than any country, yet it is unclear whether workers enjoy the right to organize or strike. We consider the paradox of power and powerlessness at the interface of a system in transition from predominantly state owned enterprise with lifetime employment for urban workers to one in which large areas of the state sector have been privatized and in which rural migrant workers, whose numbers are approaching 300 million but who lack fundamental labor rights, constitute the core of the contemporary working class and its most volatile segment.
Mark Selden is a Senior Research Associate in the East Asia Program at Cornell University, an editor of The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus, and Emeritus Professor of History and Sociology at Binghamton University. A specialist on the modern and contemporary geopolitics, political economy and history of China, Japan and the Asia Pacific, his work has addresses themes of war and peace, revolution, inequality, development, regional and world social change, and historical memory. In 1968 he was a founding member of The Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars and for more than thirty years he was an editor of The Bulletin of Concerned Asian Scholars and its successor Critical Asian Studies. He is the author or editor of more than twenty-five books and editor of book series at Rowman & Littlefield, Routledge, M.E. Sharpe, and Lexington Publishers.

Aam Aadmi Party congratulates people of Bihar

The Aam Aadmi Party congratulates people of Bihar for rejecting
communal and divisive politics of the BJP and joining Delhi voters in
teaching a lesson to the BJP for its politics of hatred. At a time
when the country was facing an unprecedented attack on secular fabric
of the country by elements encouraged by the RSS and the BJP, and
tolerance in the society was touching the lowest ever level, entire
nation was looking at Bihar for its strong political statement against
the attempt to divide the society on religious lines.
The BJP had made a similar attempt to polarize the society on
religious lines before Delhi elections. Delhi voters had handed out a
humiliating defeat to the BJP and had made it clear that voters in
India would not tolerate such cheap and dangerous electoral tactics.
But the BJP had then refused to take a lesson from its defeat in
Delhi. It tried to vitiate the atmosphere before the Bihar elections
once again. Some of frontline leaders of the BJP and those
representing various fronts of the RSS left no stone unturned to
communalize Bihar elections, but the voters of Bihar once again proved
that no political outfit can divide the country and rule.
The Aam Aadmi Party hopes that humiliating defeat in Bihar will force
a rethink within the BJP and it would give up its politics of hatred
and communal disharmony. The Aam Aadmi Party hopes that at least now
the BJP will realize that people of this country voted it to power for
development and not for its communal ideology. The most important
learning for the BJP from its defeat in Delhi and Bihar is that people
of this country will not tolerate politics of hatred and if it
attempts to divide the society on religious lines for political gains,
its sheer political existence will come under question.
We hope that after today’s election results, the atmosphere in country
will improve. The BJP and the RSS will realize that politics of
intolerance would yield nothing and the two outfits will not unleash
its workers and leaders to vitiate the atmosphere in the country.
Aam Aadmi Party also feels that after Delhi elections, Bihar
elections are second referendum on Modi Government’s work and its
style of functioning. People of this country have once again rejected
the arrogance of the Narendra Modi – Amit Shah duo. People of this
country expect that at least after defeat in Bihar elections, the
Modi-Shah duo will mend their ways and will allow the ministers of
their own government to function and will stop humiliating behavior
meted out to their own MPs, MLAs and ministers.
People of this country have seen in last eight months how BJP
Government at the Centre has been interfering in the affairs of the
Aam Aadmi Party run Delhi Government in an illegal and
unconstitutional manner. People of Bihar have also rejected this
high-handed approach of Mr. Narendra Modi. We hope that the BJP will
learn to respect the federal structure of our Constitution and would
desist from interfering in the functioning of the Delhi Government and
other state governments.
The Aam Aadmi Party also hopes that the Centre would release the 1.25
lakh crore package for Bihar without delay, as promised Prime Minister
Narendra Modi during his election campaign and it would not turn out
to be another “Chunavi Jumla.”
The country also expects the Prime Minister to put a break on his
foreign tours and spend some time in the country to address the
problems that the country is faced with today. The prices of essential
commodities are skyrocketing and the aam aadmi needs immediate
measures by Modi Government to tackle the issue of price rise.
These elections have once again made it clear that the BJP cannot
ensure its victory in elections just by paying off some news channel
owners. People of this country now know that some news channels are
sold off to the BJP and do not take their propaganda seriously.
Aam Aadmi Party also congratulates leaders and karyakartas of the BJP,
who wanted party to lose in Bihar so that Narendra Modi and Amit Shah
start behaving properly with them and give them due respect.


Siddikur & Wiratchant tied second; Six Indians in top-10
New Delhi, November 8, 2015: India’s Chiragh Kumar achieved his breakthrough win on the Asian Tour with a hard-fought three-shot triumph at the US$400,000 Panasonic Open India at the Delhi Golf Club on Sunday. Chiragh, who led the field from round two, dished out a tenacious two-under-70 at his home course in round four to end up with a tournament tally of 13-under-275.
PGTI member Md Siddikur Rahman of Bangladesh fired an eventful even-par-72 in round four to share the second spot at 10-under-278 with Thai veteran Thaworn Wiratchant who produced a resolute three-under-69 on the final day.
The five other Indians in the top-10 were, Jyoti Randhawa and Shubhankar Sharma, both tied fourth at nine-under-279, and Manav Jaini, Shankar Das and Vikrant Chopra, all tied eighth at eight-under-280.

Chiragh Kumar (67-66-72-70), the overnight leader by one shot, came home the winner in front of his home crowd after making three birdies and a bogey in his steady final round. He took home US$72,000 for his effort which took him to 12th place in the Asian Tour Order of Merit.
Chiragh’s long wait for an international title thus came to an end in his ninth season as a professional. The 31-year-old, with four titles on the PGTI under his belt, had earlier posted seven top-10s on the Asian Tour including a runner-up finish at the 2011 Indian Open at DGC.
Kumar had to keep Siddikur (68-70-68-72) at bay as they tied for the lead at the turn. The Indian holed a birdie on 11 to restore order but it was a huge 25-foot birdie putt on the 13th hole which gave him the edge.
Siddikur fought back with a birdie on 15 but two costly bogeys on 17 and 18 dashed his title hopes.
“I always knew that Siddikur will be a tough guy to beat especially when he was one-shot behind me. I’m lucky he didn’t get off to a hot start. It was neck and neck all the way but I kept myself together and played well,” said Kumar.
“I made that long putt on 13 and that gave me a two-shot cushion at that time. It definitely makes things easier to have some cushion especially at the Delhi Golf Club. I missed a short birdie on 14 but I told myself not to let it get to me,” he explained.
“Winning an Asian Tour event means a lot to me. I have come close once or twice in the past. I have actually been playing well for the last month and winning at the Delhi Golf Club makes it very special. I have grown up over here seeing senior players playing at this course and wanting to be at that stage and experiencing it today is really a dream come true,” said an emotional Chiragh.
The Delhi-based golfer reaped the rewards for the hard work that he put during the off season. “It’s has been a long off-season and put in a lot of hard work during the off-season. So a couple of weeks back when I finished second in Macao (last month), it was a big confidence boost. I have just taken it from there and played well,” he added.
Siddikur, a two-time Asian Tour winner who held an enviable record at DGC, felt pain in his lower back on the second hole when thoughts of retiring flashed through his mind. He received treatment from the physiotherapist on the fourth tee box which eased the pain for the remainder of the round.
“I thought I wasn’t able to play because I was hurt but the physiotherapist gave me some treatment on the fourth tee box and I felt better. I’m happy that I finished my round. I didn’t put any pressure on myself to do well or win because I could feel the pain in my back. The win didn’t come but it is okay,” said Siddikur, who claimed his fourth runner-up finish at DGC in an Asian Tour event and his second runner-up finish at the Panasonic Open India.
Indian veteran Jyoti Randhawa, who posted a final round 67, and Shubhankar Sharma, one of India’s rising stars, who came up with a 69 on Sunday, claimed a creditable tied fourth place along with PGTI member Mithun Perera (70) of Sri Lanka. They finished four shots adrift of the winner at nine-under-279.
The Indian trio of Manav Jaini (68), Shankar Das (69) and Vikrant Chopra (70) were a further shot behind in tied eighth place.
The other Indians in the top-20 were, Rashid Khan in tied 11th at seven-under-281, Rahil Gangjee, Sujjan Singh and Chikkarangappa, all in tied 12that six-under-282, Sanjay Kumar, Khalin Joshi and Mukesh Kumar in tied 16th at five-under-283 and Gaganjeet Bhullar in tied 20that four-under-284.

Brisk voting closes in Myanmar

Voting was brisk in the hotly-contested constituency of PyinOoLwin in Mandalay Region on Sunday, where opposition candidates are mounting a strong challenge to ruling party dominance in the military academy town.
National League for Democracy (NLD) candidates hope to beat the region’s powerful chief minister Ye Myint and other ruling party contenders as public discontent over issues such as land grabbing runs high.
Concerns remain, however, over whether the thousands of soldiers stationed here will be able to vote freely.
The NLD’s Dr. Khin Maung Htay, who is running against Ye Myint for a regional parliament seat, said that among approximately 150,000 registered voters in PyinOoLwin Township there are some 13,000 soldiers.
“Maybe 3,000 of them could support the NLD,” he estimated, adding that it was unclear if soldiers and their families would come under pressure from commanders to vote for the army-backed Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP).
The opposition has flagged this as an issue in many constituencies across Myanmar with military bases. In PyinOoLwin, the former colonial hill station, there are a number of bases and institutions, including the Defence Services Academy, an officers’ school that has long produced the country’s military elite.
Khin Maun Htay said the local NLD branch lacked resources to take on a senior USDP member and ex-general like Ye Myint. “To compete with him will be tough, he has power and money,” he said. “I hope if the elections are free and fair, I can win.
“Whenever we are in a village we realise the NLD is popular, but the question is how they will express their confidence through a vote.”
At the NLD’s small local office on Saturday, local party members were being given the last instructions on how to monitor voting and record any irregularities on Election Day. Staff at the USDP’s local office said candidates were not available for an interview.
A local hotel owner said PyinOoLwin residents were keen to vote and see the NLD win, but added that voter list issues had raised suspicions.
“I went to check my name on the voter list today, it was wrong and so was that of my wife. I showed my national registration card and asked them to change it. They did, but the officials were very aggressive and resisted,” said the man, who asked not be named.
There are two regional parliament seats and a Lower House seat up for grabs in PyinOoLwin, the latter was won by the NLD during the 2012 by-elections. The township is one of five constituencies in eastern Mandalay that represent one Upper House seat.
Aung Thu, an 88 Generation Peace and Open Society activist from Mogok Township, decided to run as an independent candidate for the Upper House seat after he was rejected by the NLD. His campaign manager MichealHtun said in 2012 some 53,000 votes here went to the NLD and 32,000 to the USDP.
All through the day voters emerged onto Myanmar’s streets, patiently waiting under a tropical sun in snaking queues.
Among them supporters of Aung San Suu Kyi’s pro-democracy party hope their mark on the ballot will overhaul a country cramped for decades by ulcerous junta rule.
Some smiled, others wore a more determined look as they voted in an election many have craved for a generation but almost dared not believe would happen.
Polls have closed in Myanmar’s general election – the first openly contested national election in 25 years after decades of military rule. Voting was brisk, with many people emerging smiling from polling stations. Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy (NLD) is expected to win the most Parliamentary seats, although she is barred from the Presidency.
Large crowds gathered in Yangon as Ms Suu Kyi arrived to cast her vote.
Early indications, said an election official, put turnout at 80 per cent. Polls closed at 16:00 local time (09:30 GMT). About 30 million people were eligible to vote in the election in Myanmar. Clear results are not expected until tomorrow morning.
The military-backed Union Solidarity Development Party (USDP) has been in power in the country since 2011.

Sardar Sarovar Oustees in Gujarat on Warpath Again, Facing Unjust Eviction

Landless-Jobless Adivasis question gross injustice
Gujarat: Since the last two days a number of adivasis from original village Karda, resettled at Amroli in Naswadi Taluka in the newly carved out Chhota Udaiput District; especially women, children and the elderly, sat on a dharna and fast, along with livestock! Reason being, 23 families with more than a 100 members, were given notices to leave the vasahat(resettlement site) with no time stipulation! As the original Sardar Sarovar villages were submerged, many of these families were brought here 2 decades ago and were permitted by the State to reside in and cultivate the lands. The same oustees are now being branded as “encroachers” and are being asked to quit.
As the oustees were unrelenting a few officers came on the spot, but there was no resolution. The oustees were then told that they would be given a “solace period” of 90 days, during which they would not be evicted, but they have to get orders from the GRA within this period. This is an unworkable approach since the GRA sends back cases to the state agency SSPA, which itself takes 70 days!  One 80 year old man who also insisted to sit on fast fell very ill and had to be admitted to the hospital. More than 60 of women, children and elders were taken into custody at 7:30 p.m. in the night as they remained firm on their demand that they be given a written assurance of not being evicted. Oustees from Kevadia colony also supported the struggle by these adivasis.
It may be noted that the Govt. of Gujarat has taken an unjust move to evict the SSP affected adivasi families from the resettlement sites where they were shifted from their original villages on the banks of Narmada, 15-20 years ago. A list of more than 1,000 oustees was prepared a few years ago, whose names the officials claimed were not found in the “computerized lists” and hence they should be ‘sent back’ to the original villages! Notices were issued to a few and a handful of families such as that of Natwar Sama, originally from Village Jher. This list includes even those families who were rightfully declared as PAFs and there is no reason or justification to evict them. Moreover, their farms, houses in the original villages are either submerged or have been inaccessible, over the years.  Another list of 281 PAFs has now been obtained under RTI, out of the list of 1,000, who would be evicted shortly. Swords are hanging!
The people are furious not only because such a large number of families are threatened of eviction, but also because a large number of them are left landless and jobless in the age group of 30 – 45, since the cu-off date for Gujarat was as early as 1987 and those who were not 18 years old then were included in the list of PAFs. Many R&R sites have no assured source of irrigation in the command areas and the rest are outside the command. There are PAFs who have received less land or land to be affected by canals again and others have claims to benefits as PAFs, but their cases are pending before the Grievances Redressal Authorities. The GRAs are generally handing over the complaints to the SSPA, asking the oustees to wait for 70 days, for providing redressal, after which the PAF has to again approach the GRA, which is cumbersome for the poor, non-literate tribal oustees.
The anger and anguish of Gujarat’s PAFs is being reflected in a series of incidents and there have been many in the past few days when a large number of oustees literally rose in a large gathering and questioned the claims of the Shri. Saurabh Patel, Minister of Power and Shri Vijay Rupani, Minister for Transport that rehabilitation in Gujarat is “complete” and “nothing remains”. They refused to listen to the “bhashans” of the Ministers and insisted that they be heard on their everyday problems. The anger was so evident that the Ministers had to go back, leaving the programme mid-way. Is the State listening to its own people?

Cow: A wrong debate
A big mass of the country is reverie with the cow and believe it’s not only an animal but venerated it also. On the other hand cow also treated as edible like other animals in a large section of the country. It’s also sooth that every year millions of tons of beef is exported and it’s totally business slant of the people who reverie in cow.  24 million tons are exported in 2015 till now. Cow sacrifice is prevailing in the country from a very long period, and todays also it comes into operation in many parts of the country.
But besides all, issue of land acquisition, fulfilling of WTO agenda, problem of Adivasis ( tribal), juggle of  NDA government on holy Ganga (Namami ganga) of Hindus vail out and the work of  strenthing the communal forces is going on. all the issues are left behind and maxim of what to eat and what not to eat and its a cabal of RSS.
India is a land of farmers and cow sept need is necessary. At many places after ply of these animal for a life time into field they kept after that also but with the introduction of the new technologies for agriculture these animals became wisp. It results, hike export of beef and now days India became at top in the world in Modi led NDA government.
Debate of eat beef or not is totally wrong and many groups disguised in term of “Beaf Party” and in repercussion “Pork Party” is organised.  The principle of repercussion  of action defamed from Gujrat hike in a country now a days. Which became a danger for communal harmony of the country.
This debate about cow is totally different from the realistic debate about the importance of cow in agriculture economic. The debate of cow is depending on economy and culture. In many part of eastern up (personal experience), the meat of cow is cheaper than buffalo. From a longer period schedule caste expend the meat of cow.
At one hand  the cow family became  unservisable in agriculture and sell out for various purpose that results availability of cows in slaughter houses. In 1921 by pricking the issue of cow tried to create a communal tension that failed by the efforts of Gandhi ji and by respecting the feeling of every one cow slaughtering was banned.
By opposing or supporting the issue of cow, is only appraising the agenda of RSS. Like two decade before Ram was portrayed as communal, and saffron became communal as it cow is also becoming communal.
In Mumbai at Devnaar Slaughter House, Vinoba bhave did a Satyagraha and everyday Satyagrahies does court arrest and its going on from decades but its not lead any communal tension because it really means to protect cow. At the time no one was there else beside these Satyagrahi. Todays all these communal groups are activated as NDA-2 in power.
The Dadri incident, the Kerela House raid prove beyond doubt that violent, political games are extremely dangerous for both minority and majority communities.
As RSS ideological government prepared to exploit the Ganga from starting to end, as in the same manner cow will also use as a poison for a community, otherwise why not these slaughter houses shut down? 80% of the slaughter houses are hold by those who are not ready to give their life for cow protection, in spite it they are ready to take life of others to protect cow.
On the banks of Narmada, cattle is bought from adivasis for as cheap as 500 or 1000 rupees illegally and carried across the river. The Madhya Pradesh government has taken no action even after numerous complaints.
It’s clear that there motive is neither to protect cow and nor keep Ganga free & clean. Their only vision is to make India a Hindutva country and that will not accept by the country which is beautifully diverse in term of language, caste, religion and culture.
Diverse social and literary eminent personalities have clearly expressed their view on rising intolerance by returning their awards. The declaration that People’;s Movements want to make goes out to all progressive and sensitive members of the society to make their own opinions through dialogue and discussions in the favor of peace, harmony and secularism.
