Marx's articles on India - written for the New York Daily Tribune in
the 1850s - show, on one hand, how British colonialism oppressed the
Indian people...on the other hand, he maintained that such colonialism

Marx did side with Indian national liberation which raises the old
relations/forces - or should that be forces/relations - of production
