it is with joy, enthusiasm and excitement that we hail the 10th anniversary of the CPI (M). The formation of this party was a powerful strengthening for the international communist movement and a great assertion that it is the people’s war that unites communists and forge genuine Maoist Communist parties. An example from which we draw lessons, inspiration, but mainly a great confidence and an ideological strength for the proletarians and the advanced masses in our country.
The formation of this party and its 10 years long history met and meet the aspirations and desires of the working class, the peasantry and the oppressed broad masses of India to have a genuine proletarian party that leads them toward a revolutionary change and the building of New Democratic society, marching to socialism and communism. The flames blazing in South Asia makes India a potential new China, that of time of revolution.
This represents revolution a huge event in the context of the balance of power in the world between imperialism and struggles of the oppressed peoples and between revolution and counter-revolution, an event that confirms that the main contradiction is that between imperialism and oppressed countries and nations, and that the revolution is the main trend. The great decision to found this party has also pointed out a method to build unity, as shown by the new and important stage of unity of the Indian communist movement represented by the merger of CPI(ML) Naxalbari and CPI (M). At the time of its formation, the CPI (M) wrote in its statement:
“The new Communist Party of India (Maoist) will continue to act as a consolidated political vanguard of the Indian proletariat. Marxism-Leninism-Maoism will be the ideological basis guiding its thinking in all the spheres of its activities. It will continue its struggle against right and left deviations, particularly against revisionism, by taking this as the main danger for the communist movement as a whole. It will still seek to unite all genuine Maoist groups that remain outside this unified Party.” \
10 years later, this promise has been met and, therefore, it is a proofed Maoist road and line to draw from, in every country where Maoists need to be united in a vanguard communist party. But it is also an indication for the ICM, in the process to reconstitute an international organization after the collapse of the RIM. Marxism-Leninism- Maoism, People’s War, unity of the MLM Communists. Our party is openly committed with this path, it has been working for this during the past years and is united with the CPI(Maoist) in the construction of this process.
The merger of CPI(M-L) Naxalbari brings better conditions for the advance of this process of unity, which all the genuine MLM parties and organizations must look at and draw lessons from, and, consequently, take side. The unity of MLM parties and organizations is a crucial element to develop support to the People’s War in India internationally. That is why our party provides its full support to the line and action of the International Committee to Support People’s War in India and calls everyone to consolidate this unity and to fight the false internationalism, that with “leftist” words advocates a rightist practice and does not understand the strategic importance of the support to People’s war and the International Committee itself.
India enters overbearingly the world scene of imperialism with its MNCs, that play an active role in this system, the same active role that the Modi’s new fascist Hindu regime wants to play. Even in our country, the tie between Indian MNCs and Italian masters is being consolidated as a relationship of collusion, alliance – yet within the contention and competition on the world market shaken by the economical and financial crisis. The case of the war industry, see Finmeccanica, the case of the steel industry, see Arcelor-Mittal and Jindal, are showing that the Indian MNCs become also an internal enemy for proletarians in Italy, and the Italian MNCs fully participate in the super-exploitation of the proletarians in India and the robbery on Indian people.
But it must be said that in this way the workers go trough the experience that masters, from Italy to India, are united in seeking their profits on the blood the workers and masses and that the proletarians are a single class on international level and must strongly tighten their ties of solidarity and struggle. And our party is committed to make this internationalist tie concrete. This tie in the economic field is translated into a new political harmony between the Modi’s fascist government and the modern fascist-style Renzi’s government, that collects Berlusconi and all the Italian imperialist bourgeoisie.
These governments want to walk hand in hand and treat their relationship at the light of this. The Indian government has also asked our government, as all European governments, to stop the activities in support to the people’s war, that in our country have a solid base in our party, in the International Committee and its dozens and dozens of initiatives carried out in recent years among workers, youth, women and genuine revolutionaries and democrats.
The Indian government sends back a marine who murdered Indian fishermen while uses the most brutal repression on its own people. This is the second reason to consider this collaboration as part a of the internal enemies in the class struggle in Italy. We are well aware that the best internationalist support is to make proletarian and socialist revolution in our country and that the best solidarity to the people’s war is to begin people’s war in our country.
For this we are working, amidst hurdles, advances and setbacks, for a very difficult enterprise; and every time our party had the opportunity to talk with Indian comrades, we found understanding of these difficulties and encouragement. But the beginning of people’s wars depends essentially on the ideological, political and organizational basis, and on this the contribution of the Indian communist movement, as that of other parties of the ICM, is one of the decisive factors. We are exactly at this stage of ideological and political preparation, to fulfill our duties as genuine internationalists.
Long live the 10th anniversary of the formation of CPI(M)!
Long live the unity of Maxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties!
Honour to the martyrs of the revolution in India!
Support the People’s War in India!
