“This People’s Democratic State will establish unity with the international proletariat and the oppressed nations of the world; opposes imperialist war and aggression, bullying, subversion and interference etc. It will support and help by all means the revolutionary struggles and revolutionary war, especially the ongoing struggles under the leadership of various Maoist revolutionary forces against capitalism, imperialism and reaction the world over.
After the victory of the revolution, new democratic, and later, socialist India, will act as a base in order to facilitate the victory of the world socialist revolution. It will closely integrate with the revolutionary and Maoist forces and their struggles in South Asia in particular, keeping in view the historical relations of India with the people of the sub-continent.”
-Programme of CPI (Maoist)
Carrying forward the legacy of Naxalbari, the CPI (Maoist) has always considered the new democratic revolution that it wages in India as an integral part of the world socialist revolution, and itself as a vanguard contingent of the world proletariat. The invaluable and incredible sacrifices that are being made by the people and comrades in this revolution are also an integral part of the great sacrifices of innumerable beloved martyrs of world socialist revolution in each and every country.
The CPI (Maoist) has always educated its ranks and the masses it leads in this spirit of proletarian internationalism. It has been active in the international Maoist movement through various means. It was one of the initiators of the Co-ordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisations of South Asia. It has participated in issuing joint statements with other Maoist parties, the ‘Declaration on Anti-revisionist Struggle’ in 2008 and recently the Joint May Day Statement of this year. It took up the defence of MLM against the Prachanda-Bhattarai revisionism and Avakianist liquidationism.
The party has widely observed a day of solidarity with the Philippines revolution within the guerilla bases and zones. It has mobilised the masses against imperialist wars of aggression and Indian expansionism. The party issues statements putting forth its views on important international developments. The CPI (Maoist) highly values international solidarity activities of Maoist parties, organisations and anti-imperialist forums in support of the people’s war in India and the broad forum that has come up to mobilse world public opinion against the Indian state’s Operation Green Hunt. It takes inspiration from them to carry forward and fulfil its revolutionary tasks as part of the world socialist revolution, with a higher sense of responsibility.
