In the occasion of the international day of support to People’s War on July 1st, our Party pay a tribute to the Comrades, men and women, fallen in the frontline, murdered in cold blood, jailed, tortured by reaction. We particularly salute Comrades Azad and Kishenji’s memory, assassinated on July 1st 2010 and November 24th 2011. Through the recent attacks carried out by the People’s Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA), Communist Party of India (maoist) demonstrated the liveliness of People’s War and the amplitude of the threat that it represents for indian ruling classes.
We cannot but salute the elimination of the counter-revolutionary militia Salwa Judum’s chief, Mahendra Karma, which the awful crimes were published in the 25th May communiqué issued by Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee of CPI (Maoist) :
“One can hardly find any examples in the history to compare the severity of the devastation and barbarity caused by Salwa Judum to the lives of the Bastar people. It killed more than one thousand people in cold blood; torched 640 villages into ashes, robbed thousands of houses; ate or took away chickens, goats, pigs, etc.; forced more than two million people to be displaced; dragged more than 50 thousand people into state-run ‘relief’ camps. Thus the Salwa Judum became an anathema to the people. Hundreds of women were gang raped. Many women were murdered after rape. Massacres took place in many places.
The atrocities perpetrated on the people and havoc created by the hooligans of Salwa Judum, the police and paramilitary forces, especially the Naga and Mizo battalions crossed all limits. There were several incidents in which people were brutally cut into pieces before being dumped in rivers. Cherli, Kotrapal, Mankeli, Karremarka, Mosla, Munder, Padeda, Paralnar, Pumbad, Gaganpalli… in a number of villages people were killed en masse. Hundreds of tribal youth were recruited as SPOs and were turned into hardened criminals. Mahendra Karma himself led the attacks on several villages in the name of conducting meetings and marches.
Many women were raped by the goons with the direct instigation of Mahendra Karma. He was directly involved in many incidents of burning the villages, torturing and murdering the people. Thus, in the minds of the people of Bastar, Mahendra Karma remained as an inhuman killer, rapist, dacoit and a loyal broker of the big capitalists. In entire Bastar people have been demanding our party and the PLGA for many years that he must be punished. Many of them came forward voluntarily to give active support in this task. There were also a few attempts, but due to petty mistakes and other reasons he was able to escape.”
We reiterate once again our support to the Communist Party of India (maoist) in its hard struggle against indian state which relies on several imperialist powers in its war against its own people, including France which is supposed to deliver 126 Rafale warplanes and 63 optional. We reaffirm that our support to People’s War in India can only find its full-fledged existence in the development of revolution in our own country, led against our own imperialism. We follow in that sense proletarian internationalism as defined by Lenin :
“There is one, and only one, kind of real internationalism and that is working wholeheartedly for the development of the revolutionary movement and the revolutionary struggle in one’s own country, and supporting (by propaganda, sympathy, and material aid) this struggle, this, and only this, line, in every country without exception.”
We salute the development of revolutionary people’s governments (Krantikari Janatana Sarkars) in the red areas despite the ferocious fights that oppose revolutionaries to state armed forces. These represent the future of indian society, a development to serve the people opposed to capitalist development imposed by ruling classes from which people’s masses are suffering.
We salute the revolutionary women in their struggle to break the specific oppression which they are suffering from, particularly in a semi-feodal society like indian society.
We salute the adivasis, dalits and religious and national minorities which are suffering from cast and hindu chauvinist domination and from indian expansionism. We salute the male and female workers who are struggling against the dreadful exploitation of their bosses, puppets of imperialist monopolies.
We salute the peasantry and agricultural workers who oppose to feudal landlords. We salute the intellectuals and students who are siding with the exploited and oppressed by supporting actively People’s War and opposing Green Hunt Operation.
We salute the large people’s masses who struggle on a daily basis for their liberation and emancipation. In our country, we are working actively so that echoes of the People’s War in India will reach the hearts of the factories, people’s neighborhoods, universities, schools to strengthen and develop class struggle for revolution.
Long live Communist Party of India (maoist) !
Long live People’s War in India !
Long live proletarian internationalism !
Long live world proletarian revolution !
