    Background: India's pro-Moscow Communist Party continued in Calcutta on Friday (28 January) its second day of demonstrations in its Anti-U.S. Week. Organised by the Youth Wing of the Communist Party, about 2,000 demonstrators gathered in front of Calcutta's Bank of America office. Blocking the entrance and shouting slogans, the demonstrators prevented the bank from functioning. Trade union leaders were on hand to ensure that the crowd id not turn to violence.

    On Thursday, the Communist Party organised a mass boycott of U.S.-controlled petrol stations around Calcutta in protest against "U.S. policy towards the Bangladesh Freedom Movement".
