Unconditioned release for all political prisoners in India!
Solidarity with all political prisoners in the world!
Stop Green Hunt!
Support People’s war in India!
In India more than 10.000 political prisoners are languishing in jails. They are leaders, cadres and members of the CPI (Maoist) and PLGA; Adivasi villagers who resisted the forced evacuation; peasants who struggled against the MOUs signed by governments and TNCs to exploit the people and continue the imperialist looting of natural resources; activists of the national minorities organized against the rising threat of Hindu communal fascism; intellectuals like Dr Saibaba, artists, students and activists of other democratic organizations, guilty of standing on the side of the people facing the war on people waged by the Indian state; women of the people, feminists, united to rebel against the huge escalation of rapes, committed in part by the armed and police forces and paramilitary fascist squads sponsored by the State. In jails the prisoners face every kind of harassment, torture, denial of bail, inhumane living conditions, arbitrary transfers, brutal assaults and punishments of solitary confinement, and often the detained women are raped.
In spite of the fierce condition of detention, prisoners are resisting and struggling with revolutionary spirit and turning the dark jails in which they are confined into a battlefront against the raising fascism in India and the Indian regime.
The struggle for their unconditional release is an urgent task for all the solidarity forces and it is integral part of the support for the victory of their liberation war.
All India is more and more turned by the ruling classes into a “prison house of people’s movements”. The Indian ruling classes, under the guidance and with the assistance of imperialists, launched the multi-pronged and country-wide offensive called Operation Green Hunt. This is supposedly aimed to wipe out the Maoist movement but in fact it targets and is aimed to suppress any genuine democratic demand of the people. Thousands of revolutionary and democratic mass organizations leaders and members have been assassinated, tortured and put in jails. Blamed under false cases, many of them are facing harsh punishments, under the draconian laws adopted by the central and state governments, that brand people’s leaders and strugglers as “anti-national or terrorist”.
Imperialist economic and financial crisis is intensifying continuously and also imperialist aggressions and reactionary wars escalate. In this situation, Modi’s brahmanical fascist BJP government have given top priority in their agenda to annihilate at the earliest the Maoist struggle, the newly shaping people’s political power organs, the Krantikari Janatana Sarkar (Revolutionary People’s Committees) and to plunder the country’s natural wealth at a speedy pace and at any cost. Modi, who is the first servant of domestic and foreign Corporate Houses, has not only initiated but is also aggressively implementing the third phase of Operation Green Hunt. In this context, Modi’s regime has proposed aerial attacks on Adivasi areas.
Indian Maoists appeal to all revolutionary parties and organizations, international solidarity organizations, trade unions, renowned democratic progressive intellectuals, workers, peasants, students, youth, artists, writers, scientists, environmentalists, teachers, to raise their voice against the decision of aerial attacks on adivasi majority areas and to take to streets in protest.
The liberation war of the masses in India cannot be stopped by savage repression, rather it extends the political and moral solidarity for the people’s war.
The International Committee in Support of the People’s War in India launches an International Week of Action a from 2nd to 9th of April 2016 all around the world.
In this week all initiatives will express solidarity with all political prisoners in the jails of imperialism and reactionary regimes and support to all struggles for their liberation.
