LIBERATION OF ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS IN INDIA!
ENOUGH WITH TORTURE, SEXUAL VIOLENCE, AND RAPE
AGAINST POLITICAL PRISONERS!
ALONGSIDE THE MAOIST COMRADES WAGING THE LARGEST PEOPLE’S WAR IN INDIA!
In India, considered “the greatest democracy in the world” by imperialist states and governments, including our own, the Renzi government in Italy, there is advancing an ever more fierce and widespread repression against the people, especially the adivasis, in order to impose the interests of the large multinationals and the dominant strata of the wealthy. Towards women this repression rages atrociously, combining armed police and military violence with sexual violence, rape used as a weapon of war.
But to this brutal repression, the rapes and killings in the villages, as in the cities, which remain deliberately unpunished, against the many who suffer the oppression of imperialism and the Indian feudal/patriarchal and caste state – more and more women are responding massively with oceanic demonstrations and protests.
Above all, women in India have become the heart and most determined strength of the largest people’s war in the world led by the Maoist Communist Party of India, effectively making the people’s war a war of the masses.
This frightens the Indian state and the fascist government of Modi which responds by incarcerating hundreds of women and relentlessly carrying out sexual torture, police rapes and bestial sexual mutilation, particularly against women political prisoners, against Maoist communists, in a futile and desperate attempt to strike them as women and as revolutionary fighters.
But they delude themselves! The role and power of women in the people’s war becomes larger every day and decisive for the liberation of all the people and the breaking of all the chains, through a revolution within the revolution. They are a reference point for the struggles of all the oppressed women in the world!
The Revolutionary Proletarian Feminist Movement in Italy calls women, who also in our country suffer double exploitation and oppression, the revolutionary comrades, the sincere feminist movement to join in this week (April 2 to 9) of international action for the liberation of political prisoners, to send a message and make efforts for the release of all political prisoners in India, to demand an end to sexual torture and rape against women in prisons.
At the same time, in this campaign of international solidarity, we want to denounce and call to mobilization for all revolutionary women political prisoners in the prisons of the world – from the Turkey of fascist Erdogan, Kurdistan, in Palestine against the Zionist state of Israel, Italy, etc. – Considered “dangerous” because they defy their bloody and oppressive regimes and their wars, and indicate to all women the revolutionary road to liberation.
We want to remember in particular the Turkish and Kurdish comrades of Yeni Kadin and Atik arrested via the joint action of the Turkish state and the “democratic” Germany of Merkel, to strike in the imperialist centers those who fight in the streets of Turkey and Kobane.
And in our country, political prisoners, like Nadia Lioce, held under the 41a system of white torture, to punish those who have not repented before this infamous State.
FREEDOM FOR ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS!
LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE OF WOMEN WORLDWIDE!
