The Imperialist Suicide Epidemic in India. Presentation and discussion with Revolution writer and author Larry Everest.

Between 1995 and 2009, 241,679 farmers in India committed suicide, and by the end of 2010 the number had probably risen to 250,000-a quarter of a million people. In 2009 alone, 17,638 farmers committed suicide-an average of one every 30 minutes. What's has caused this largest wave of recorded suicides in human history? What role has the U.S. and the global capitalist system played? How does this show the urgent need for communist revolution and creating liberating societies where people could flourish and never think of ending their lives?
