World Crisis

SUPPORT RADICAL NOTES

From: Ravi Kumar: ravi@radicalnotes.com

Dear Comrades and Friends,

Greetings from Radical Notes. Taking our cue from Marx’s lesson that “to be radical is to grasp the root of the matter”, we initiated Radical Notes (http://www.radicalnotes.com) as an effort to understand the roots and ever innovative forms of “the guerrilla fights between capital and labour”, of the open, hidden and interstitial struggles within and against capitalism. Ideas become material force only when they are radical – revealing, not concealing, themselves in concrete analyses of concrete situations. They must rise, perpetuate and return in an anti-sectarian “generalisation” (Verallgemeinerung) of these struggles, imbued with “revolutionary passion” (die revolutionäre Leidenschaft). The focus on South Asia stems not from the facilitators’ comforts of cultural convenience, but from the need to concretise a ‘radical’ pursuit. South Asia provides us the opportunity to visualise the reproduction of ‘global’ capitalism and the struggle against it in a specific regional setting.

With this aim we have undertaken activities like:

Ø  Publish an e-journal (http://www.radicalnotes.com);

Ø  Host debates (through publications and meetings) on issues confronting the movements for social transformation in general and the working class movement, in particular;

Ø  Publish Radical Notes Series (printed and distributed by Aakar Books, http://aakarbooks.com) under which we include scholarly monographs and collections addressing theoretical and practical issues arising within the movements of the oppressed and exploited;

Ø  Publish Refoundations Series under which we plan to include monographs revisiting historical texts, documents, debates and movements;

Ø  Organise film shows followed by discussions;

Ø  Audio-Visual documentation of people’s struggle.

There are a host of other activities Radical Notes is determined to undertake in order to address the need for a sustained counter-narrative of resistance against the offensive launched by global capitalism. These activities would include diversification in terms of publications and more extensive use of audio-visual means to strengthen the radical voices, creation of more public fora to debate the ongoing movements and so on. Till now we have been organising the activities of Radical Notes mainly through financial contributions generated from among members of the editorial team. However, the expansion endeavour that has been envisioned involves more expenditure. We would, therefore, like to seek your support to sustain and expand Radical Notes, which has become a recognised voice of radical resistance.

Please let us know at our email address (contributions@radicalnotes.com) or at my address 
(ravi@radicalnotes.com) –– in case you are interested in supporting our activities. We would really appreciate the decision to become a regular supporter of the cause by contributing a fixed amount annually.

Looking forward to your support in the struggle against capitalist offensive!
Revolutionary greetings
Editorial Team
