Our speaker, Cde. Nagraj, is an agronomist based in Karnataka State of India in South-India. This state is now ruled by BJP but was ruled by the Congress Party in 1983. He resigned from his state gov. job in 1983 over what he saw was unfairness to the farmers. He then worked with farmers unions. I think he is associated with CPI-M (to be confirmed).  He is available both for the 17th and 31st of January 2021. I have asked him to send me a synopsis of his talk by email.  Since … Continued

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as their own. But in his own time, MLK was viewed as the radical … Continued
