Video: Footage from the Indian student movement, 1968

Posted by redpines on October 28, 2011

The following video, a clip from Louis Malle’s documentary “Calcutta,” shows Naxalite involvement in student uprisings and the ensuing police repression. It is interesting for its visual resemblance to many recent international uprisings, as well as the way the bourgeois narrator tries to frame the events.

The video originally appeared at Naxalite Revolution.
