[Perspectives] The dark underbelly of state capitalism in India

“Capitalism is destroying the planet.” Can anyone deny it?

In a series of powerful essays over the years, Roy has stirred our conscience and spoken up with great courage against the depredations of capitalism and state power in India—from forced displacement in the Narmada Valley to the invasion of tribal lands by mining companies and the brutal repression of Kashmir’s independence movement.
