I am very much hoping to meet Subhas Dutta when he is Britain in September.
He is planning to create a Green Party of India, which is long over due, I have had the pleasure of working with Dr Debal Deb, the West Bengal scientist and I hope that Mr Dutta will talk to Debal who has advice would I am sure be of great value.
There are huge struggle to protect land and oppose enclosure in India and India has long historical traditions of respecting nature.
The way in which indigenous politics based on respect for Mother Earth has become organised and made a huge impact in Latin America has to be a model for other parts of the planet.
The left in India, I gather, are largely ignorant of ecological struggles and don't often question the need for a different kind of economic system based on ecology and grassroots participation.
Tough country to form and sustain a Green Party, good luck to those trying!
