Naxal wanted in 200 cases in three states held in MP

Dilip alias Guha Uike, a Naxal wanted in Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh for his alleged involvement in more than 200 crimes, has been arrested by the state police after an exchange of fire in the forests of Kantangtola and Kurrezodi in Balaghat district. A member of North Gadhchiroli- Gondia Division Committee, Dilip was wanted for 19 murders and 29 attempted murders in Balaghat district of MP alone. He carried a total reward of Rs 35 lakh in these three states.

Dilip, 36, had joined the Malajkhand Dalam two decades ago when he was only 16. After being a member of this Dalam, then headed by Suraj Tekam, Dilip was made security guard of Commander Vijay who headed the Korchi Dalam. In 2008, Dlip became member of the Divisional Committee (north Gadhchiroli). MP police said they had received a tip off that Dilip was seen in the jungles of Songudda on May 20. Accompanied by six-seven armed members, Dilip was seen in plain clothes. The police said when the group was cornered by search parties from Songudda its members fired at the police. While other members managed to escape in the dark, Dilip lost his weapon and was left behind.

Mahendra Karma sons get Naxal death threat

Naxals on Friday threatened to “eliminate” slain Mahendra Karma’s two sons — Chhavindra and Deepak — for initiating the move to revive anti-Naxal vigilante force Salwa Judum, founded by their late father in Chhattisgarh’s conflict zone of Bastar. In a press release issued by West Bastar division of outlawed CPI (Maoist), the rebels said, “We will kill Chhavindra Karma and Deepak Karma in ‘jan yudhh’ (people’s war) if they revived Salwa Judum in Bastar”.

Maoist leaflets threatening to kill the junior Karmas were circulated in remote Bastar region, including in areas close to the home of Karma family in the village of Farsapal in south Bastar district of Dantewada, a senior police officer posted in Bastar told this newspaper. Mahendra Karma, the founder of Salwa Judum, was brutally killed along with 26 other Congress leaders of Chhattisgarh in the Naxal ambush on their convoy at Jiram Ghati in Bastar district on May 25, 2013. Chhavindra has announced to launch a “peaceful movement” in the line of Salwa Judum under the banner of “Vikash Sangharsh Samiti” to take on Maoists in Bastar on May 25. Meanwhile, Congress in Chhattisgarh has distanced itself from the decision by Mr Chhavindra Karma, a PCC secretary, to launch Salwa Judum-2, saying the junior Karma has not intimated the party about his move.

In another development, armed red guerrillas set on fire six machineries deployed for construction of railway line at Tudparas in Dantewada district early on Thursday morning in protest against the move to revive Salwa Judum in Bastar.

Maharashtra: Naxals kill abducted youth

Naxals had killed a youth from Kolsegudam village in Aheri tehsil in Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra whom they had abducted a few days ago, police said today. Naxals abducted Ravindra Shankar Sunkri (24), son of the police patil of the village, on the suspicion that he was a police informer on May 16. Police said that Ravindra had been indeed working as a special police officer between 20013 and September 2014. Around 15 armed Naxals had taken him away from his house.

Police then launched a search operation, during which there was an exchange of fire with the ultras in a forest near village Asha and some Naxals were injured. The ultras killed Ravindra to take revenge for this skirmish, a police release here said. A Naxal pamphlet found near his body said Ravindra was killed because he was working as an SPO.


Arrested Maoist leader to undergo DNA test

PUNE: Murali Kannambally (62), senior leader of the banned CPI (Maoist) outfit, who was arrested on May 8 by the anti-terrorism squad (ATS), Pune, will undergo a DNA test as part of the ongoing probe that includes fixing his identity in view of the several fake identities he used prior to his arrest. On Thursday, the court of special judge S V Mane extended the remand of Murali and his aide, Ismail Hamja CP, in ATS custody till May 25 to facilitate the probe, additional public prosecutor Vikas Shah said. “The DNA test on Murali is one of the grounds the ATS has mentioned in its report for extension of remand of the two accused,” Shah said. The ATS suspects, among other things, that Murali was involved in spreading and promoting ideology of the banned Maoist outfit and associated anti-national activities of the organization.

The ATS had seized several incriminating material including banned Maoist or Naxal literature, laptop, CPU, printer, hard disk, mobile phone handsets, sim cards, internet dongles, forged Aadhaar and PAN cards along with Rs 54,000 in cash. In a four-page remand report submitted by assistant commissioner of police Bhanupratap Barge, the ATS has mentioned that they needed to arrest Sanjay Deepak Rao of Ambernath in Thane district, who provided support and place of hiding to the two accused, and also needed to corroborate certain confidential information relating to Murali which the ATS squad had secured from Kerala where he was active. Also, two other persons are being interrogated in connection with the sim cards seized from the duo and the ATS was also investigating people who provided financial and other support to the duo.

Of the total 10 sim cards seized from the duo, five cards were secured from Maharashtra and the rest were from other states. Murali was also in touch with top Maoist leader Ganapathy, the ATS report stated. Following their arrest, the court had initially remanded them in ATS custody till May 15 and the same was extended till May 21. “The Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act provides for custody remand up to total 30 days,” said Shah.

Move to revive Salwa Judum fizzles out in Bastar

RAIPUR: Amid opposition from political parties, the move to revive a ‘ Salwa Judum’ like peoples movement against Maoists in tribal Bastar region of Chhattisgarh has been fizzled out with organisers now saying that they would now organise a meeting on May 25 to pay homage Naxal attack that killed frontline Congress leaders in May 2013. Slain Congress leader Mahendra Karma’s son Chhavindra Karma and other leaders had announced on May 5 that they would convene a meeting at Faraspal in Dantewada district on May 25—the third anniversary of Bastar massacre—to chalk out strategies to re-launch a peoples’ movement against Maoist rebels. Leaders of erstwhile Salwa Judum had also supported the move.

While Maoists have threatened a bloody backlash against all those trying to revive any movement against them, mainstream political parties did not come out in open to support the proposed campaign fearing violence and bloodshed in the tribal region. Late Mahendra Karma’s son and two former Salwa judum leader Chaitram Atami and Sukhdev Tati had formed a ‘ Vikas sangharsh samiti’ to fight for the development of Bastar. In the process, they sought to project the proposed movement as the second phase of Salwa judum, a controversial movement that led to bloodshed in Bastar between June 2005 and December 2008. Then, Congress leader Mahendra Karma had spearheaded the Salwa Judum campaign. ” We are organising a meeting at Faraspal on May 25 to pay homage to Mahendra Karma and others who were killed in maoist attack in 2013″, said Chhavindra Karma.

The May five announcement to re-launch a Salwa Judum like movement had triggered protests in Bastar. Maoists began organising meetings to mobilze people against the proposed campaign while political parties including local BJP, Congress, Communist party of India (CPI) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) went public against the call to revive such a movement. Slain Congress leader Mahendra Karma’s spouse Devti Karma is a Congress legislator while his sons are also active members of the opposition Congress. After the announcement came, AICC general secretary B K Hariprasad announced that his party has nothing to with ‘Salwa Judum’ campaign and it was not in favour any such campaign.


Being a Maoist is Not a Crime, Says Kerala High Court

KOCHI: Being a Maoist is not a crime and a person cannot be sent to custody for being one, the Kerala High Court said in a significant judgement on Friday. “Though the political ideology of a Maoist does not synchronise with constitutional polity, being a Maoist is not a crime,” said Justice A Mushtaq. “Freedom becomes unlawful when it confronts with laws of the country,” he added. The police cannot detain a person “merely because he is a Maoist” unless they find that their activities are unlawful, the judge said.

The court was giving its ruling on a petition by a man who was detained on the suspicion that he was a Maoist. Shyam Balakrishnan alleged in his petition that he was harassed by the Thunderbolt team, an elite commando force involved in counter-insurgency operations in Kerala. The court said Mr Balakrishnan should get Rs. 1 lakh as compensation.


Odisha police seeks two more BSF battalions to intensify anti-Maoist operation

KORAPUT: Seeking two more battalions of BSF jawans, Odisha Police today said it had decided to intensify the anti-Maoist operation in Koraput and Malkangiri districts. “In recent times the Maoists have lost base in Koraput and Malkangiri districts and are in the back foot. But we can’t be complacent. It has been decided to intensify our anti-Maoist operation and for it we need at least two more battalions of BSF in Koraput,” Director General of Police Sanjiv Marik told reporters here ..

Huge cache of ammunition recovered after an encounter in Jharkhand

A huge cache of ammunition was recovered from Palkot area in Gumla District following an encounter with Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) cadres on May 21, reports The Telegraph. Acting on a tip-off that Maoist ‘sub-zonal commander’ Dipakji was camping in the dense forests of Palkot, special teams, comprising State Police personnel and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, were formed to corner the squad from all sides. As the Security Forces (SFs) neared the forests, the Maoists opened fire.

The SFs also retaliated, forcing the Maoists to flee, leaving behind a huge quantity of ammunition. “We recovered 514 rounds of 7.62mm bullets, a hand grenade, Naxalite [Left Wing Extremism (LWE)] literature, Police uniforms, backpacks and items of daily use from the encounter spot,” said Gumla Superintendent of Police (SP) Bheemsen Tuti. Though no arrest was made, bloodstains scattered at the spot suggested that a few of them might have sustained bullet injuries, Police said.

Meanwhile, armed Maoist cadres set ablaze two Hywa trucks, one JCB, one road roller and a tractor deployed in a road construction work at Parswar village under Bhandariya Police Station limits in Garhwa District on May 20, reports The Pioneer. The Maoists also badly assaulted caretaker Arjun Yadav and Surendra Gupta. According to Police, about 30 to 35 armed Maoists reached Parswar village and set ablaze the machines and dragged the caretakers out from their houses before badly assaulting them. Later, they reached at Changiya tola of the village and set ablaze road roller and a tractor there. The Maoists left the place after threatening not to start the construction work, which is being conducted by PRA constructions.

Police vigil stepped up in Maoist-affected areas in Karnataka

The Police have intensified combing operations in Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist)-affected areas of the Dakshina Kannada District where Gram Panchayat (GP) (village-level local self government institution) elections will be held on May 29, reports The Hindu. Polling will take place in 227 gram panchayats of which 65 are in Maoist-affected areas. “We are conducting area-domination exercises to infuse confidence among residents,” said Superintendent of Police Sharanappa S.D.

Modi’s fascist hindutva regime unleashes another wave of state repression and war on people


Let us respond intensifying counter-information, exposure, international and internationalist solidarity

The Indian state, ruled by the Modi’s regime serving the Indian masters and imperialism, is developing a new stage of fierce repression on all fields with the aim to crush the people, stop the people’s war, attack the Maoists who lead it. In order to speed up the plans of selling off the natural resources to the domestic and foreign MNCs, the Indian regime is restructuring its entire repressive apparatus: army, air force, police, paramilitary gangs. They attack not only the “Naxalite threat”, but all the movements opposing their policies and resisting the ‘Operation Green Hunt’. They also attack the democratic intellectuals, human rights activists and any dissenting voice is heard, to wipe out anyone around the people’s movements and the people’s war led by the Maoists. They attack the adivasi populations living on the lands rich in natural resources, where the people’s war is stronger, to eliminate the new people’s power that is blossoming there. In recent weeks, in particular, the Indian regime has widely touted the illegal arrests of estimated revolutionary intellectuals and social activists, already criminalized and forced to go underground and then branded as terrorists, whose only crime is the belonging to the CPI (Maoist).

Comrades Murali Kannampally and Ismail Hamza were arrested in the hospital of Talegaon Dabhade where the first was undergoing medical treatment, while comrades Roopesh, his wife Shyna, and others were captured in Coimbatore. It is known that at least two of them have been denied legal assistance and medical care they need, while other prisoners revealed that, while questioning, the police threatened to take them to a forest and execute them in fake encounters or that their family will be arrested. Under any kind of pretext, their illegal detention is extended and it is feared the resort to torture, as already occurred many cases. Against these arrests in the recent days there was a wide mobilization in India for the release of prisoners and to defend their living and detention conditions.

The persecution of intellectuals and democrats in the University never stopped. GN Saibaba, professor at Delhi University, with a disability of 90 percent has been in prison for a year while the trial has not even started and the courts have repeatedly rejected his bail application, despite the evidence that he represents no danger and has no chance to escape. Meanwhile, the witch hunt continues on students and intellectuals branded for ‘Maoists links’, threatened, harassed, arrested, detained for years waiting for a trial, that, when celebrated, at the end often will acquit them. In India and around the world the initiatives of solidarity demanding their immediate release and the repeal of the draconian laws, a colonial heritage, applied to haunt them. The same laws used to sentence for life under ‘sedition’, Raja Sarkhel and Prasun Chatterjee, members of the Revolutionary Democratic Front, an officially not banned organization, along with Chatradhar Mahato and three other known activists of the people

Modi’s regime increases to a large-scale the repression and displacement, often with massacres, on the adivasis and people who resist the deportation from their land to give space to the big projects which will devastate their lands forever. The CPI (Maoist) reveals how the Indian state is preparing a ‘Salva Judum 2′, the replica of the first Salva Judum unleashed in recent years. Salva Judum is the infamous name given to the paramilitary gangs of Hindu fundamentalists who were given free hand and full impunity for atrocities, fires, destruction, massacres, rapes, committed in the name of ‘development’ in many villages. It is a new escalation of the war on the people lasting since 2009 – the Operation Green Hunt – that the struggling people’s masses and all the sections of the democratic opposition in the Indian society are countering on all fields, as occurred during the first Salva Judum, whose gangs were hit and defeated by the masses and the people’s war, led by the CPI (Maoist).

The initiatives of resistance to stop the war on the people multiply throughout India, while the people’s movement aiming to overthrow the ruling classes grows. Repression will not stop but feeds the rebellion. The comrades arrested are well-known and loved by the people, who express solidarity and intensify the struggle. But we also urgently need to intensify the international and internationalist solidarity, that in recent years developed in many forms, to stop the genocidal hand of Modi and support the struggle of the Indian masses. The International Committee to Support the People’s War in India calls the whole movement to mobilize in a protracted campaign of counter-information and exposure of the Indian regime and imperialism that sustains it.

Stop Green Hunt!

Defend the arrested comrades and political prisoners!

Support the struggling masses!

A month of activities and initiatives at the embassies, consulates, centers of economic interests of the Indian multinationals, public meeting to inform and develop people’s solidarity, to honour the martyrs of the revolution, presenting books and publications of the CPI (Maoist) and Indian intellectuals to learn about the situation in India and the advances of the revolutionary people’s struggle.

Maoist Couple

6 vehicles set ablaze by Naxals

Six vehicles, engaged in the doubling of railway tracks at Tudaparas Camp, six km from Dantewara district headquarters in Chhattisgarh, were set afire by Naxals last night, police said.The ultras first drove away labourers engaged in doubling tracks and then set ablaze a JCB machine, a poclain machine, a dozer and three other vehicles after breaking their tanks. Maoists have also left behind slips after the incident, in which they have registered protest against the Land Acquisition Bill and launching of second part of the Salwa Judum (anti-Naxal movement), besides demanding curb on activities of security personnel.


Sonbhadra dam, four decades later:

Where fears return in a flood

Kanhar Irrigation Project was dormant for nearly 40 years before Uttar Pradesh govt set about reviving it. This has led to violent protests by villagers it will displace, police firing and opposition from two states. From Sonbhadra in UP and Jhara in Chhattisgarh, Maulshree Seth reports. Akloo Parhiya was 10 years old in 1976 when N D Tiwari, Uttar Pradesh’s then CM, laid the foundation stone for the Kanhar Irrigation Project at the junction of three states. Last month, Parhiya was injured while leading a violent protest against displacement by the same project, work on which has suddenly picked up after nearly four decades of stagnancy. “It is difficult to trust a government that betrayed our forefathers four decades ago and now wants us to move to a 150 sq m plot with a Rs 2 lakh cheque (the first instalment of relief),” says the tribal leader, now 48.

A villager of Sundari in UP, he is now in Chhattisgarh’s Jhara village, his wife’s home, following his treatment for injury, paid for by the UP government. Both villages will be among those inundated by the project, which is on the border of three Naxal-hit districts, Sonbhadra (UP), Balrampur (Chhattisgarh) and Garhwa (Jharkhand). Water from its dams will submerge 4,077 hectares, much of it forest land, and villagers are demanding alternative forest land rather than the plot allotted by the UP government. The protests have ceased for now for fear of police action. They had been peaceful until the violence of April 14 leading to police firing. The agitation had begun last December following efforts to revive the dormant project.

Maoist Couple in Custody of Kerala Intelligence Team

COIMBATORE: A team of the Internal Security Intelligence Team (ISIT) from Kerala took custody of the recently arrested Maoist couple, Roopesh and Shyna, from the Coimbatore Central Prison early on Wednesday morning. They will be produced before the Kochi Additional Sessions Court, where the ISIT is expected to seek their custody for investigations into their alleged harbouring of Maoists in Angamaly in Ernakulam district in 2007. They are accused of sheltering Maoist Malla Raja Reddy and his wife, Beecha Sugana, in Angamaly. However, they were arrested by Andhra Pradesh police, after which Roopesh and Shyna allegedly destroyed incriminating documents kept in the house which had served as Reddy’s hideout.

Apart from ISIT personnel, Armed Reserve Police personnel from Kerala and Tamil Nadu and a commando unit were present when they were taken into custody from the Coimbatore prison. The Kerala police have also stepped up security at the court where the two are to be produced. Bomb disposal and dog squads will be stationed here. The Kerala police will also seek their custody from the court.






Press Statement 15 May 2015

Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF) condemns the startling verdict of Midnapore court in which Raja Sarkhel, Prasun Chatterjee, Chhatradhar Mahato and 3 others sentenced for life under ‘sedition’ and various sections of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). All of them had actively participated in the historic Lalgarh movement that attracted the attention of the country during the Left Front rule. Raja Sarkhel and Prasun Chatterjee were members of Gana Pratirodh Manch (GPM), which is a constituent of Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF). They are on the all-India Executive Committee of RDF. Raja Sarkhel has been fighting for people’s causes for decades. He joined the revolutionary movement in 1970s and since then he stood for the cause of the oppressed and participated in various militant struggles.

Prasun Chatterjee was also active in revolutionary movement for the last 20 years and stand by the movements that supported New Democratic Revolution. Chhatradhar Mahato was a prominent leader in the Lalgarh movement and is the spokesperson of Peoples’ Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA). Sukhshanti Baske, Sambhu Soren, Shagun Mahato were also activists of the PCPA. All of them were charged under unlawful Act during the CPM-led Left Front government and are now convicted in the Trinamool Congress regime. What more can we expect from the hypocrite Mamta Banerjee, who promised to release all political prisoners if voted to power.

Her fascist Government is now hell bent to send leaders of the Lalgarh movement, which played a major role in uprooting the fascistic CPM government, to jail. The glorious movement not only pulverized the fascistic rule but also challenged and transformed the exploitative and oppressive social order. The Lalgarh movement left its mark in the people’s movements in the country and attracted even international attention for its determined struggle despite the severe oppression by the State machinery. Started off as a movement to oppose police atrocities, the Lalgarh movement evolved into a movement that seeks to change the social order, building resistance against the State and the Harmad Vahini, the militia force run by the fascist CPM. This Movement presented an alternative socio-economic model and political structure, with agrarian revolution as its base. Led by the peasantry, this glorious movement was so strong that it forced the Indian ruling classes on its knees. The Indian State used every means to suppress the movement. But the agitating people, armed by revolutionary politics, gave them a fitting reply.

It was difficult for the State to take an impending defeat and began to target the leaders of the movement by arresting them using several draconian laws. It murdered Shashidhar Mahato, one of the most beloved leaders of Lalgarh movement and brother of Chhatradhar Mahato, Lal Mohan Tudu, who became the President of the PCPA after Chatradhar’s arrest, and Kishanji in fake encounters. The Trinamool Congress won the elections largely owing to the pent up anger against fascistic Left Front rule. But after attaining power, Mamta Banerjee conveniently forgot all the promises she made during the polls. She betrayed people. She not only went back on the promise of release of political prisoners, she created her own goonda militia Bhairav Bahini, following the footsteps of the CPM, to suppress the Lalgarh.

She wants to clear the way for imperialism, comprador big bourgeois and local landlords to plunder natural resources and exploit the toiling masses. People like Raja Sarkhel, Prasun Chatterjee and Chhatradhar Mahato had consistently worked to build the movement. They played a historic role in strengthening the arms of the masses with revolutionary politics and helped them fight the oppressive State forces. They have a role to play in building a strong resistance against exploitative, oppressive measures of the TMC-ruled State Government and the BJP-led Central Government. This is why the TMC government used all its resources to see to it that they get a conviction instead of securing their release as they promised earlier. RDF demands the immediate unconditional release of Raja Sarkhel, Prasun Chatterjee, Chhatradhar Mahato, Sukhshanti Baske, Sambhu Soren, Shagun Mahato and all other political prisoners, dropping all charges on them. We make an appeal to all the progressive and democratic people and organisations to extend their support in securing their release.

Repeal UAPA!

Release All Political Prisoners!

Hoy, precisamente cuando en el Perú se vive la contraofensiva estratégica más descarada y contumaz del revisionismo, el proletariado y pueblo del Perú y el proletariado internacional asistimos a conmemorar un aniversario más del Inicio de la Lucha Armada.

Claro está, la guerra no puede ser vista mecánicamente, de manera metafísica, idealista, sin movimiento propio y ajena de las leyes de la guerra donde no solo nuestro accionar es el que tiene incidencia en su desarrollo, sino el contexto internacional, la dinámica nacional y la disposición táctico estratégica del enemigo. Ese todo va determinando los momentos, escenarios, circunstancias, contradicciones y desde luego, las formas de dirimirlas, siempre sobre la misma base estratégica: Guerra Popular hasta el Comunismo.

Con la voz de mando emitida por el Presidente Gonzalo: ¡SOMOS LOS INICIADORES!, en 1980 se dio inicio a la lucha armada manifiesta en el Perú como Guerra Popular, es decir, guerra del pueblo bajo guía del proletariado y su Partido Comunista. Guerra Popular que tiene validez universal y que desde los Andes del Perú hasta la India, han ido refrendando su validez, vigencia y sobre todo la fundamentación teórico-política e ideológica como la línea militar del proletariado internacional en aras del Poder.

Los camaradas del Perú dieron inicio a la más grande hazaña del proletariado después del triunfo de la Revolución en China, gesta que deviene de recoger toda la experiencia histórica del proletariado desde la Comuna de París, la Revolución de Octubre, la Revolución de Nueva Democracia en China, La Gran Revolución Cultural y desde luego, ese bagaje de experiencias acumuladas por la clase y el pueblo del Perú en la lucha de clases y que toma formas científicas, dialécticas, como Marxismo-Leninismo-Maoísmo-Pensamiento Gonzalo.

La gran tormenta obrero-campesina del Perú fue faro de la revolución proletaria mundial a fines de siglo pasado. Su luz fue llamarada que estimuló e incendió los ardientes corazones del proletariado y pueblo en Filipinas, Turquía, Nepal e India, y así convertirse en la actualidad en el nuevo faro conjunto que desde todas las latitudes del planeta fomenta el desarrollo de la Guerra Popular y/o la disposición de los comunistas por construir y reconstituir Partidos Comunistas íntima e indesligablemente ceñidos a la guía de la todopoderosa ideología del proletariado, el MARXISMO-LENINISMO-MAOÍSMO.

Hoy la Guerra Popular atraviesa momentos difíciles en el Perú, empero no debe abrumarnos, son etapas de la guerra en la que circunstancialmente se pierde la iniciativa, pero no la guerra. Es cosa de tiempo y esfuerzo por vivificarla, reorganizarla, dinamizarla por recuperar el Poder gestado años atrás y lanzarla a la ofensiva final.

En la actualidad la situación es más compleja, el revisionismo confunde a las masas, se muestra victorioso después de pertrecharse en el Nepal bajo jefatura del miserable de Prachanda y la anuencia del revisionismo Avakianista; ahora en el Perú el Movadef pretende hacer lo propio, quiere guarnecerse, cumple con su rol estratégico ante el viejo estado, pero eso dice mucho y nada a la vez. Mucho, porque marca su contraofensiva que busca conjurar la revolución, desarmar ideológica y políticamente al proletariado y alinear a las masas en las espurias entrañas de la vieja democracia burgués-terrateniente. Nada, porque aún coludido con la reacción y el imperialismo, el revisionismo no ha podido ni podrá evidenciar de manera objetiva que el PCP y la Guerra Popular hayan arriado banderas de lucha y desistido de su proyecto estratégico de destruir el viejo Estado y erigir sobre sus ruinas lo nuevo: Nuevo Poder, Nueva Democracia como tránsito al socialismo manifiesto como Dictadura del Proletariado, de ahí que el derrotero de la Guerra Popular en el Perú y la revolución democrática de nuevo tipo siguen firmemente inscritas a los fueros de la Gran Revolución Proletaria Mundial.

Es cosa de tiempo, los mapuches, en su guerra de liberación nacional y su esfuerzo anti feudal combatieron más 300 años en la guerra de Arauco; es así, y aún tienen muchas tareas pendientes, casi todo por hacer. Esa es la lucha de clases y no puede ser vista de manera rígida, etapista, se cumple, pero con dificultades, sin inmediatismo pequeñoburgués; sin embargo, el Presidente Gonzalo hizo forja en la militancia para entender que es de esa manera, que es guerra popular, que su característica es prolongada, y en eso bregan los camaradas, en eso bregamos los comunistas por entender y desarrollar.

Hay que seguir derrumbando viejos muros, desplegar la aurora, el futuro nos pertenece y solo podemos asistir a su encuentro con Guerra Popular.

“¿Hemos pasado momentos difíciles?, Sí: pero, ¿qué ha demostrado la realidad?: que si se persiste, se mantiene la política al mando, se mantiene la estrategia política, se mantiene la estrategia militar, se tiene un plan claro, definido, entonces se avanza, y se es capaz de enfrentar cualquier baño de sangre…”. P. Gonzalo

¿Qué hemos entendido sobre la Guerra Popular en el Perú los comunistas del Ecuador? Que de la misma manera como La Comuna, la Revolución de Octubre y la Revolución en China, la Guerra Popular en el Perú sobre sus alcances, triunfos y recodos, son luz, son guía. Que cuando apuramos esfuerzos por desatar la gran tormenta obrero-campesina en el Ecuador al servicio de la Revolución Proletaria Mundial esos legados de lucha se reeditan ceñidos al nuevo movimiento social, político e ideológico que se va desenvolviendo la sociedad en su conjunto y que solo pueden ser procesados desde la ideología correcta, del proletariado. Es decir, no podemos ni pretendemos ver la Guerra Popular en el Perú ajena a la Comuna, a la gran revolución bolchevique o a la revolución en China del Presidente Mao. Lo que ahora emprendemos y lo que aún nos falta por hacer con sangre, fuego y mucho optimismo de clase tiene ese sello impreso por los iniciadores en mayo de 1980, dirección proletaria, masas explotadas con Guerra Popular hasta la victoria.

Hemos entendido que cuando hablamos de Guerra Popular en el Perú, estamos hablando de Guerra Popular en Filipinas, Turquía y la India, es una relación dialéctica y hasta sistémica, deviene de la ideología, el marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo, y eso es fundamental observar, entender y aplicar.

Cuando las hienas de la reacción y del revisionismo gimen y aúllan gritando desaforadas que “la Guerra Popular en el Perú ha sido derrotada” no tienen sino eso, sueños de hienas. La Guerra Popular se mantiene latente, anida cada vez más en el seno del pueblo, es cuestión de tiempo, pronto esa gran tormenta será nutrida con el esfuerzo vital del Proletariado internacional…, entonces si danzaremos.

The three leaders of the Provisional Central Committee, Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) or CPI (M-L) (PCC) who were allegedly detained “illegally” by the Paschim Medinipur District Police on May 17 had been charged with sedition. The Additional Chief Judicial Magistrates’ Court in Jhargram in Paschim Medinipur remanded Jiten Giri, Sunil Barik and Niranjan Bera to six days in police custody on Tuesday. “Apart from sedition, Giri, Barik and Bera were also charged with criminal conspiracy,” their counsel Ashini Mondal told The Hindu on Tuesday.

He also said that in the court, the police alleged that on May 17 the three persons were spotted roaming around “suspiciously” in Lodhasuli area in the district. “On getting the information the police reached the spot and found that they (Giri, Barik and Bera) were carrying Maoist leaflets,” said Mr. Mondal. They would be produced in court again on May 25. CPI (M-L) (PCC) is not a banned organisation. This comes a day after the CPI (M-L) (PCC) general secretary Santosh Rana alleged in a press statement that the three party leaders were being illegally detained by the police and had not been produced in court even 24 hours after the detention. Mr. Rana also alleged that the three party leaders were detained for putting up posters demanding release of Chhatradhar Mahato. Mahato, convener of the CPI (Maoist)-backed Police Santrash Birodhi Janasadharaner Committee (PSBJC) or the People’s Committee against Police Atrocities, was convicted by a court in Paschim Medinipur district last week for sedition and the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), 2008.

Top woman Maoist carrying Rs 15 lakh award killed: CRPF IG

The woman Maoist killed by security forces in an encounter on the night of May 16 has been identified as Sarita alias Urmila Ganjoo, a senior CRPF officer said on Tuesday. The top ranking Maoist operative was the wife of Sunil Ganjoo and a resident of Putki village under Simaria police station of Chatra district in Jharkhand, CRPF IG (Bihar-Jharkhand) Arun Kumar told PTI. Urmila was member of the Bihar-Jharkhand Special area committee of the banned outfit and wanted in several cases and had carried a reward of Rs 15 lakh, he said. The INSAS recovered from her after the encounter was looted in 2009 from a guard posted at SBI bank branch at Bermo in Jharkhand, the CRPF IG said adding, a police vehicle was also blasted by them in the attack on the bank.

71 villages identified which could become Maoist base

COIMBATORE: In an attempt to thwart Maoist incursion in under developed tribal settlements across the district, Tamil Nadu Q branch has identified and forwarded a list of 71 tribal villages to the district administration, seeking their immediate intervention. The police have asked the revenue and other related departments to speed up the implementation of government schemes mainly pertaining to basic amenities like issuing ration cards, health and rural connectivity. The recent arrest of suspected Maoist commander Roopesh, his wife Shyna and their accomplices from Karumathampatti, has further strengthened the police suspicions that Maoist elements are trying to setup base among tribals in the region.

“We have received a letter listing out 71 tribal villages from Q branch headquarters few days ago. Based on the letter, we are trying to speed up these government schemes,” said a senior officer from the district administration. The 71 settlements identified are scattered in five Taluks including Valparai with high tribal populations. According to sources, the 71 settlements are coming under Valparai, Pollachi, Mettupalayam, Perur and Coimbatore North. Following the letter, the district administration has issued 97 ration cards to 97 tribal families.

Ensure Bail to Prof with Maoist Links, KK Urges Rajnath

HYDERABAD: Rajya Sabha member and TRS leader K Keshava Rao has requested the Central government to intervene and ensure that bail is granted to Prof G N Saibaba, who was arrested by the Maharashtra police in 2014 for his alleged links with Maoists. In a letter written to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh recently, the MP sought his intervention to ensure that Saibaba was granted bail. Considering the poor health condition of Saibaba, who suffers from 90 per cent disability, the government should respond on humanitarian grounds and provide him better medical facilities, Keshava Rao said.

“Our intervention is more on the grounds of his physical disability and noble academic profession,” he stressed and described the case of Saibaba as a classic example of humiliation, indignity and violence that most people with disabilities are subjected to when they are arrested, incarcerated, institutionalised or otherwise engaged with law enforcement agencies. Referring to the Persons with Disabilities Act, 1995, Keshava Rao urged the government to provide Saibaba with proper medical treatment at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Section 46 of the Act mandates proper facilities to persons with disabilities, he pointed out. “India is also a party to the UN convention on Rights of persons with Disability (UNCRPD) which speaks eloquently about the special treatment and justice to be meted out to such persons,’’ he reminded. Recently, the TRS MP had also given a notice for discussion on Saibaba in the Rajya Sabha during the Zero Hour. However, it could not be taken up for discussion for some reason. To highlight the issue, Keshava Rao had decided to personally write a letter to the Union Home Minister.

Congress disassociates with move to revive Salwa Judum in Bastar

RAIPUR: Opposition Congress has disassociated with the move to re-launch ‘Salwa Judum’, an anti-Naxalite peoples’ movement in tribal Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, saying that it was the responsibility of the centre and the state governments to work out and implement strategies to deal with Maoist menace. All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary B K Hariprasad, who is in charge of party affairs in Chhattisgarh, clarified his party position on Wednesday after Chhavindra Karma, son of slain Congress leader Mahendra Karma, made a public announcement for re-launch of Salwa Judum from May 25–the third anniversary of Maoist attack that killed frontline state Congress leaders. “We have nothing to do with Salwa Judum. It’s the job of government of the day to fight Maoists and not of Chhavindra Karma or any other individual”, he said at a press conference.

Three Maoists arrested in Bihar

The East Champaran Police on May 17 arrested three Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) cadres, identified as Matar Sahani, Chandradeo Sahani and Munchun Sah, from three different places under Chhoradano and Lakhaura Police Stations limits near Indo-Nepal border, reports The Times of India. The Police also recovered two pistols and cartridges, details of levy collection and Maoists literatures from their possession. They are being quizzed by Police as they are suspected to be arms suppliers to the Maoists in Bihar. Acting on a tip-off, the Police conducted raid at Majirawa village and arrested the Maoists but the group leader Sheopujan Rai and Manjan Sah managed to escape. Police have evidence that Matar Sahani has strong links with Nepalese Maoists and he has base in Nepal.



“En las luchas sociales, las fuerzas que representan a la clase avanzada a veces padecen algún fracaso, mas no a causa de que sus ideas sean incorrectas, sino de que en la correlación de fuerzas en lucha, las fuerzas avanzadas aún no son tan poderosas por el momento como las reaccionarias, y por consiguiente fracasan temporalmente, pero alcanzarán los éxitos previstos tarde o temprano.”

Presidente Mao Tsetung

I. El Partido Comunista del Perú con profundo sentimiento de clase saluda el 35 aniversario de la guerra popular del Perú: el movimiento político revolucionario más trascendente de la historia peruana hasta hoy. Guiado certeramente por el marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo, pensamiento gonzalo, dirigido justa y correctamente por el Partido bajo la Jefatura del Presidente Gonzalo y luchando al amparo del Ejército Guerrillero Popular construyó cientos de Comités Populares en las tres cuartas partes del país conformando la República Popular de Nueva Democracia, movimiento cuya repercusión rebasó las fronteras y fue reconocido como el faro de la revolución mundial.

Su inicio, concretado en una coyuntura internacional de defensa y mantenimiento de la revolución proletaria mundial, ardorosa lucha de los marxista-leninista-maoístas en el mundo; y nacional de desarrollo de la protesta popular contra más de una década de dictadura militar, la que se pretendía contener con ilusiones constitucionales electoreras; en una situación revolucionaria en desarrollo en la que el Partido Comunista estaba preparado con una autoridad reconocida como el Presidente Gonzalo y un grupo de dirigentes probados, con una línea política general que fijaba el rumbo de la lucha de clases, con una militancia y un trabajo de masas profundamente cohesionados en la ideología y la política partidaria, es decir, con un partido de nuevo tipo listo en una condición favorable y con una opinión pública internacional a favor también del marxismo y la revolución socialista; su inicio, un comenzar de la nada, el ILA 80 fue un rotundo éxito y es gran lección histórica para todos los revolucionarios.

En solo dos años, la guerra popular con el apoyo de las masas, principalmente campesinos, pobres, pasó a su desarrollo cubriendo el ámbito de campo principal y ciudad complemento en las tres regiones del país. Desarrollo que en una década mantuvo siempre la iniciativa política y militar y llegó al equilibrio estratégico, habiendo derrotado todos los planes de la guerra contrasubversiva reaccionaria que pretendió ahogar en sangre la revolución.

Etapa en la cual el P. Gonzalo desarrollando su pensamiento fundamentó sólidamente su tesis de que el maoísmo es una nueva, tercera y superior etapa del marxismo, gran aporte a los comunistas del mundo, asumido por el entonces vivo Movimiento Revolucionario Internacionalista en su conjunto. Etapa en la cual el PCP alcanzó su más alto prestigio como partido militarizado que dirigía su propia construcción, al EGP y el nuevo poder: la RPND en formación, plasmando así la esperanza de la transformación de la centenaria opresión de la clase y el pueblo en palmaria revolución democrática. Etapa en la cual la conciencia política de las masas alcanzó su más alto desarrollo, organizándose como militantes, combatientes y activistas en los tres instrumentos de la Revolución.

Etapa que si bien cruenta y dramática ha dejado rica experiencia revolucionaria, valiosas lecciones positivas y negativas y numerosos héroes, hombres y mujeres de la clase y del pueblo que nos acompañan con su hermoso ejemplo de lucha por transformar la opresión y explotación en un sistema más justo e igual para las amplias mayorías populares como el socialismo.

II. A causa del insuficiente desarrollo de las fuerzas nuevas, el PCP vivió un giro estratégico en su proceso: un problema de dirección política de la guerra con la detención de la Jefatura y sus principales dirigentes. La guerra entró a su término objetivamente y el P. Gonzalo desde su prisión tomó la iniciativa política de pedir conversaciones para lograr un Acuerdo de Paz que pusiera término a la guerra librada entre el 17 de mayo de 1980 y setiembre 1992, lamentablemente su petición no prosperó por oposición del gobierno de turno y por la nueva línea oportunista de derecha que usurpó la dirección del Partido aduciendo que tomarían el Poder. Nunca se llegó a acuerdo alguno y el Partido asumió la nueva gran estrategia de pasar de lucha política con armas a lucha política sin armas propuesta por el P. Gonzalo, dentro de la cual el Partido brega por superar la derrota y desarrollarse en medio de la lucha de clases de las masas.

III. A 35 años del inicio y 23 de término de la guerra popular y de la detención de setiembre 92, el grupo armado del VRAEM vegeta al margen de la realidad, aislado de las masas y trafica con el nombre del Partido, convirtiendo la ideología en un desvarío burgués completo. El Estado reaccionario desató una política represiva con matanzas, juicios y encarcelamientos de por vida oponiéndose absolutamente a una solución política, amnistía general y reconciliación nacional, dejando sin resolver los pendientes problemas de la guerra: miles de hijos del pueblo, campesinos, obreros, estudiantes, pequeños comerciantes, desaparecidos sin que nadie se ocupe de ellos siendo obligación del Estado encontrarlos y entregarlos a sus deudos; miles de familiares sin saber dónde están ni poder darles respetuosa sepultura; miles de revolucionarios y comunistas sentenciados a condenas draconianas de 20 a 35 años y hasta cadena perpetua, de los que aún quedan 300 prisioneros políticos, entre los cuales tres exdirigentes que ya cumplieron sus 25 años de condena y a quienes el Estado les ha fabricado nuevos casos para imponer la cadena perpetua como al P. Gonzalo y la c. Míriam; miles de liberados impedidos de trabajar en el magisterio y otras entidades públicas, hostilizados por haber sido prisioneros negándoles el derecho fundamental de la incorporación del penado a la sociedad, desconociendo así el propósito de la condena; persiguiendo a quienes asumen el derecho constitucional a participar en la vida política del país con la libertad de pensamiento que la ley permite; y hasta apresando a los abogados, acosando a los hijos, exigiendo el pago de gigantescas reparaciones civiles; prohibiendo incluso la libertad democrática de dar su verdad para que también quede la memoria histórica de los revolucionarios y no únicamente la memoria del Estado y sus entes oficiales como la tal Comisión de la Verdad; además de las decenas de exiliados fuera del país, impedidos de volver. Todo esto por la sistemática persecución política que ha impuesto el Estado y la reacción peruana a comunistas, revolucionarios y a marxista-leninista-maoístas, pensamiento gonzalo extendiéndola a todo progresista, demócrata y pueblo en general que discrepe o luche contra el régimen capitalista.

Panorama antidemocrático impuesto al oponerse a la solución política, amnistía general y reconciliación nacional que el pueblo, la nación y la sociedad peruana demandan y necesitan, y que se suma a la política antipopular que el gobierno de derecha de Ollanta Humala preconiza en representación de la gran burguesía peruana proimperialista principalmente yanqui, cuyo plan de nueva acumulación originaria se ve encontrado con una crisis económica y política a resultas del capitalismo que impulsa, generando la agudización de la contradicción: pueblo-capitalismo en un contexto de elecciones generales y de lenta y larga recuperación económica mundial que ha llevado a la antagonización de las contradicciones interimperialistas por un nuevo reparto del mundo, creando tres frentes de guerra: Medio Oriente, el más candente hoy; en la propia Europa con Ucrania aún no resuelto; y el principal de Asia, frentes que muestran cada vez más clara la bipolaridad en ciernes entre Estados Unidos y China.

IV. La perspectiva del PCP en esta cuarta etapa de lucha política sin armas se presenta alentadora teniendo en cuenta que las masas no cejan de luchar y buscan quién las represente volviendo sus esperanzas hacia el Partido, único organismo de clase que podrá dar el rumbo de sus luchas hacia la revolución y el socialismo.

Sin embargo, el Partido debe persistir en la lucha por la libertad de todos sus dirigentes, militantes y masas; debe asimismo remontar y superar el desequilibrio para continuar su reconstitución empezando por cohesionarse en la ideología del marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo, pensamiento gonzalo, en la nueva línea política general y en la lucha contra el revisionismo escisionista que poniéndose del lado de la reacción quiere destruir el Partido atacando a la Jefatura en prisión; desarrollando al mismo tiempo su lucha política en medio de la lucha de clases de las masas y al servicio del internacionalismo proletario; solamente así devendrá Partido de nuevo tipo y cumplirá su papel oponiendo la revolución a la guerra de rapiña que el imperialismo prepara para resolver su crisis y repartirse el mundo.


 17 DE MAYO DEL 2015


A 35 años del inicio de la lucha armada de 1980-Colectivo Solidaridad

Este 17 de mayo se cumplen 35 años del inicio de la acción armada revolucionaria que dirigió el Partido Comunista del Perú. Consideramos que ese proceso es parte de la historia del Perú, y como tal debe seguir abordándose desde una perspectiva histórica, analizando sus causas políticas, económicas, sociales y las condiciones en las cuales se desenvolvió, la permanencia en tiempo y espacio y su desarrollo, que abarcó a toda la sociedad peruana. Varios especialistas de diverso tipo de formación la han calificado de guerra civil o guerra interna y desde el punto de vista del PCP se considera guerra popular, como a continuación podemos ver siguiendo sus planteamientos.

El desarrollo de la lucha de clases en la sociedad peruana de fines de la década del 70 posibilitaron el desencadenamiento de la acción armada, era una necesidad puesta a la orden del día por muchas organizaciones políticas de izquierda de entonces, y fue esa guerra popular dirigida por el Partido Comunista del Perú-Sendero Luminoso, la que devino en el proce¬so político de mayor trascendencia de nuestra historia. Estuvo guiada por una ideología: el marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo, pensamiento gonzalo; e implicó la aplicación de un pro¬grama de 14 puntos de la revolución de nueva democracia; un camino de cercar las ciudades desde el campo, campo principal, ciudad complemento; una planificación políticamente dirigida y plasmada en tres tipos de grandes planes: de desarrollo de la guerra popular, de construcción y planes militares; una estructura de acción militar especificada en 4 formas de lucha, todas ellas formas de acciones guerrilleras; un Ejército Guerrillero Popular, conformado desde 1983 conce¬bido a partir de la tesis de Lenin sobre la milicia popular, guiados por el principio de “El Partido manda al fusil”.

Su desarrollo y expansión fue tal que llegó a abarcar casi todo el territorio nacional e implicó a la vez la más grande movilización de las masas armadas, principalmente campesinas pobres, de ahí el carácter de revolución democrática, pues la sociedad peruana de entonces era semifeudal, semicolonial y de capitalismo burocrático con una inmensa población rural, la que sintió que la revolución representaba sus más caros anhelos de transformación de esa condición semifeudal de atraso y miseria, de opresión inmisericorde de terratenientes y gamonales; la revolución iniciada le ofrecía (y hacía realidad) el cambio real que muchos partidos de izquierda, devenidos luego revisionistas, entonces veían lejano y decían esperar a que ‘maduren las condiciones’.
Es una realidad innegable que durante todo su proceso, la lucha guerrillera golpeó como nadie las tres montañas que oprimían al pueblo, sirviendo al mayor barrimiento de la semifeudalidad, combatió al capitalismo burocrático y el dominio imperialista principalmen¬te yanqui hasta devenir en peligro principal para su seguridad; simultáneamente, fue construyendo lo nuevo, el nuevo poder, una nueva economía, nueva política y nueva cultura, en sus aspectos destructivo y constructivo, donde el segundo fue el principal, guerra que llegó a su punto más alto en julio de 1992. Y en todo ese proceso enfrentó la política genocida implemen¬tada por el Estado peruano bajo la orientación del imperialismo yanqui.
Nos adherimos al deseo y demanda de familiares y amigos de construir el Monumento a los Héroes del Pueblo, que signifique un homenaje concreto a su memoria, a reivindicar su papel de entrega revolucionaria por una noble causa, y a la defensa de los hechos desenvueltos desde mayo del ochenta como parte del proceso histórico de lucha por la emancipación de nuestro pueblo.
A más de 22 años de concluida la guerra, las clases dominantes siguen imputando al PCP de ser “organización criminal”, a su ideología de “dogmática y violentista” y a los hechos desenvueltos desde mayo del ochenta, de “terrorismo”, para despojarle del carácter político, con lo que se busca negar que en nuestro país hubo una guerra popular revolucionaria que libró la lucha por la transformación de la sociedad peruana, y que si bien no triunfó se concretó como la más alta experiencia de la lucha del pueblo peruano por su emancipación y que desde la posición del propio PCP considera que estableció 5 importantes logros:

• Es el más grande movimiento popular revolucionario de la historia peruana;
• Ha establecido el maoísmo como nueva, tercera y superior etapa del marxismo y concretado el pensamiento gonzalo como arma ideológica estratégica, específica y principal;
• Ha elevado el prestigio del PCP al punto más alto de su larga historia y extendido su influencia y repercusión en el mundo como no la tuvo jamás;
• Ha acumulado ingente experiencia revolucionaria actual principalmente positiva; y,
• Ha hecho un gran aporte a la Revolución Proletaria Mundial llegando a reconocérsele como “antorcha de la revo¬lución mundial” y al Partido como “vanguardia de choque de la revolución mundial”.

Todo ello comprueba que significó un hecho político de gran trascendencia en la historia de la sociedad peruana, especialmente republicana; con una amplia incorporación de masas, principalmente campesinos, obreros, intelectuales, artistas, jóvenes y mujeres. Aquí cabe destacar el papel importante de los jóvenes, una fuerza muy activa y comprometida desde los inicios, y de la pléyade inmarcesible de mujeres del pueblo, quienes elevaron su conciencia política y en intensa brega devinieron revolucionarias y comunistas, llegando a asumir altas responsabilidades dentro de la organización, como en los destacados casos de Agusta La Torre Carrasco, camarada Norah y Elena Yparraguirre Revoredo, camarada Míriam, que junto al Dr. Abimael Guzmán Reinoso, Presidente Gonzalo, conformaron el Comité Permanente Histórico que dirigió la guerra popular, siendo indiscutible el papel estratégico que representa la jefatura encarnada en el Presidente Gonzalo, que ha sido decisiva en la reconstitución, dirección de la guerra y en la nueva etapa de lucha política.

Pese al tiempo transcurrido, aún no se han resuelto los problemas derivados de este proceso histórico porque el Estado peruano a través de sus gobiernos se empeña en no darlo por concluido para seguir usándolo en función de sus intereses políticos como lo hace el gobierno de Ollanta Humala. El PCP planteó la necesidad de ir a una solución política, amnistía general y reconciliación nacional, necesaria para que la sociedad peruana cierre como corresponde el capítulo de la guerra de la década del 80 del siglo pasado; indispensable para que el Estado deje de usar el pretexto de la guerra para extender su poder punitivo contra el pueblo criminalizando sus luchas; y también útil para los miles de involucrados a quienes se les margina de la sociedad cual parias. Pero la reacción peruana con ceguera histórica se niega a atender estas justas y razonables demandas. Incluso con cinismo desvergonzado, Humala saluda el proceso de conversaciones de la guerrilla colombiana con su gobierno pero en el país desata una persecución política macartista e inquisitorial.

Las diversas facciones de la gran burguesía usan el tema del ‘terrorismo’ para criminalizar la lucha popular como vemos hoy en la masiva lucha popular en el valle del Tambo. Pretenden ser los dueños de la verdad absoluta única e incuestionable, desatan persecución política contra comunistas, revolucionarios, demócratas y contra la lucha popular y buscan impedir que la verdad histórica se abra paso. Incluso impiden la libertad de los prisioneros políticos que han cumplido su pena llegando a proponer la salida de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos porque se ha amparado la denuncia de torturas del Estado peruano contra los prisioneros políticos. Lo que esto muestra es que los problemas pendientes de la guerra siguen sin resolverse y el Estado no quiere una solución política prefiriendo una opción militar y represiva hasta hoy, lo que evidencia una posición retrógrada y reaccionaria pues siguen con los ojos atados al pasado.

Al Dr. Guzmán lo mantienen 23 años en condiciones de aislamiento absoluto, ensañándose con él cual trofeo de guerra, negándole su derecho a expresar sus puntos de vista. Ante ello, la publicación del libro Memorias desde Némesis, es un hecho fundamental que sirve a que la verdad histórica se abra paso y a generar condiciones para una solución política que es necesidad del pueblo, la nación y la sociedad peruana en su conjunto.
En el Perú actual, capitalista, dependiente del imperialismo y con rezagos semifeudales, se desenvuelve un sistema económico basado en la explotación y opresión crecientes, concentración de capitales y en una nueva acumulación originaria, que esquilma al proletariado, al pueblo y los recursos naturales. Camino que se lleva adelante a costa de una mayor plusvalía que sacan de la clase obrera, despellejándola, succionando su sangre y sudor en beneficio de la gran burguesía y del imperialismo. Frente a ello el proletariado y el pueblo resisten y luchan masivamente empezando a conquistar victorias como en el caso de la lucha juvenil contra la llamada “ley pulpín”, van desarrollando sus luchas por derechos fundamentales y tomando cada vez más conciencia de la necesidad de preparar la revolución socialista para acabar con el capitalismo explotador y opresor.

El Estado persiste en usar el tema de la guerra interna como ‘cuco’ para perseguir y reprimir las justas luchas de los pueblos como en Islay, llamándolos ‘delincuentes’, ‘hordas’, ‘terrorismo antiminero’, y en aplicar métodos usados en la lucha contrasubversiva haciendo montajes de supuestas evidencias, fabricando acciones que generen rechazo en el pueblo, sembrando ‘pruebas’, actuando con ensañamiento y violenta represión contra los luchadores populares y llegando hasta el sicariato para asesinar a los hijos del pueblo.

El operativo llamado Perseo contra los miembros del MOVADEF, el cierre de la exposición artística de las prisioneras políticas, el ataque a la obra La Cautiva junto a la persecución judicial contra prisioneros políticos y opositores al gobierno y la represión contra el movimiento popular (Apurímac, Pichanaqui, Valle del Tambo, Tumán, etc.) son hechos que prueban la existencia de la campaña contrarrevolucionaria de persecución política que han extendido hasta el pueblo; y como persiguieron ayer a los comunistas, hoy tratan de proscribir de la sociedad a quienes enarbolan la ideología del proletariado negándoles su derecho a actuar políticamente.
El proletariado y pueblo peruanos, forjados en miles de combates, seguirá persistiendo en sus luchas, no se dejará amilanar por la derecha y ultraderecha que pretenden imponer a sangre y fuego sus planes de explotación capitalista, seguirá elevando cada vez más su conciencia política y avanzando en asumir la ideología del proletariado como guía de sus bregas hacia la revolución socialista.

People’s War in India Clippings 18/5/2015


Naxals Trying to Build Helicopters, Remote Controlled Explosives, Show Documents: Sources

GAYA, BIHAR: Documents recovered from top Naxal operatives arrested recently in Bihar’s Gaya region suggest attempts to manufacture a “microlight helicopter” using motorcycle engines and other sophisticated equipment, say sources in the Central Reserve Police Force or CRPF. In the last week, three such operatives were arrested and three were killed in CRPF operations. They had with them, said the sources, literature that throws light on Naxal strategy in Bihar and other parts of the country. The most startling, they said, are plans to manufacture a “helicopter” that can carry two people for extremely short flights, say between two hills, in areas where the Maoists operate.

This “helicopter” would reportedly use engines of Hero Honda motorcycles. The CRPF sources did not specify whether they have seized drawings or then papers which indicate that a prototype has been built. The documents allegedly also indicate that the Naxals are attempting to manufacture mortar shells and remote-controlled improvised explosives devices or IEDs. Security forces have unearthed similar plans before. Naxals had reportedly tried their hand at manufacturing a helicopter a few years ago, but it was too rudimentary and could not have flown, it was analysed. They had also earlier tried to manufacture rockets, most of which reportedly exploded, killing their own cadre.

Among other plans allegedly detailed in the documents seized this week, is a decision by the Naxals not to target railway tracks – except during bandhs – and schools or hospitals, as it is felt that the common public uses these services and attacks on them lead to a negative perception about the Maoists.


Chhattisgarh: 3 cops, 2 Maoists killed in gunbattle

Three policemen and two Maoists were killed in an encounter in Chhattisgarh’s Bijapur district on Sunday. The encounter took place early in the morning near Ponjed at Mirjur in Gangalur police station area where a team of STF and district police force was coducting an anti-Maoist operation. STF constable Sitaram Kunjam and assistant constable of the district force Moti Ram were killed on the spot. Another constable Payku Ram Poyam succumbed to his injuries while he was being taken to Jagdalpur. Among the Maoist killed was a senior guerilla fighter Hemla Masa alias Vijay, commander of Company 2 of West Bastar Division of CPI (Maoist).

R K Vij, ADG (Naxal Ops), said: “Fifteen rounds of AK-47, nine shells of Under Barrel Grenade Launcher, a 12 bore rifle and a wireless set were recovered from him.” R K Vij, ADG (Naxal Ops), said: “Fifteen rounds of AK-47, nine shells of Under Barrel Grenade Launcher, a 12 bore rifle and a wireless set were recovered from him.” Speaking on rebel presence in the area, Vij said the area was “highly-affected”. “Our team had gone for an operation when the Maoists opened fire at them. Our jawans retaliated. We have recovered bodies of two uniformed Maoists,” he added. The STF, which is specially trained for anti-Maoist operations, has faced its maximum casualties this year. As many as 11 STF personnel have already been killed in 2015. Last month, the STF lost its seven men in Sukma’s Pidmel area. This year is turning out to be a difficult year for security forces fighting Maoists in Chhattisgarh, with 30 casualties so far.

The last three years have witnessed deaths of 62, 43 and 52 personnel, respectively. Considering that the death count this year does not include a single personnel from CRPF, precisely because it has almost stopped sending its men to distant areas for operations, the casualty list also becomes worrisome for the Chhattisgarh police.

Maoists revive anti-bauxite committees in Agency areas

CHINTAPALLI (VISAKHAPATNAM): With their sights set on cashing in on the flare-up in the anti-bauxite agitation, the CPI Maoists have begun reviving their anti-bauxite committees as part of their efforts to beef up their rank and file in the bauxite reserves zone and unite tribals for anti-bauxite agitations. According to sources, Maoists have revived two of their anti-bauxite committees, which will be known as Bauxite Belt Area Committees, to create awareness among tribals about bauxite mining and its impact.

Around three-four anti-bauxite committees were formed nine years ago when late chief minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy made efforts to excavate bauxite reserves in the Agency areas to supply ore to Anrak Aluminium Limited and Jindal Steel through Andhra Pradesh Mineral Development Corporation. However, the committees lost purpose following the delays in clearances and permissions for excavation of bauxite from the central government and naxals losing their grip in the area after a series of encounters, arrests and surrenders. Maoist leader Ganesh initially led the bauxite belt area committees consisting of four to five members each when he was the area committee secretary. These committees worked actively for almost five years.

Now, the Reds under the guidance of senior leader Chalapati have revived two of the committees and plan to increase their number by merging them with various ground level committees, sources said. According to sources, the main committees would work under the direction of armed cadres by creating extensive propaganda about the impacts of bauxite mining and ask local people’s representatives to conduct protests. According to highly placed sources, the Red guerillas were focusing on Galikonda, where they lost ground almost one and a half years ago and were taking steps to strengthen the village level committees and militia network. “Galikonda, including GK Veedhi, Koyyuru and Chintapalli mandals, is the main pocket for Maoists to carry forward their anti-bauxite agitation as the area has huge bauxite reserves. At present, they have a stronghold in GK Veedhi and some parts of Chintapalli,” said a senior police officer working in the Visakha Agency.

Sources said that the Reds recently visited Palakajeedi, Balarevula, Pokalapalem, Kunukuru, Garimanda, Pedavalasa and other areas in Galikonda. The top naxal leadership has given the responsibility of conducting anti-bauxite agitations to Kudumula Venkata Rao alias Ravi, chief of the Central Regional Committee (CRC)-1, which is one of the military formations of the CPI Maoists in the Andhra-Odisha border area. Korukonda area commander Naveen has been conducting the meetings in Jerrela. “We have information about Maoist movement in Galikonda and will enhance combing operations there,” said Visakha Rural SP Koya Praveen. Meanwhile, sources said that the police department was chalking out plans to take up community policing programmes in the area and police officers deployed in the Agency areas would interact with heads of the villages to counter the Maoist threat.

Bihar border sealed after Gaya encounter with Reds

RANCHI: The Jharkhand Police on Sunday sealed the border that the state shares with Bihar in Chatra district following an encounter between Maoists and CoBRA jawans in Gaya on Sunday morning. Police said a woman cadre of the CPI(Maoist) was killed in the encounter that took place in a village that lies between Gaya’s Barachatti and Chatra’s Rajpur police stations. CRPF IG Jharkhand sector Rakesh Kumar Mishra said a joint operation with Bihar police was launched after receiving inputs that Maoists were meeting near the inter-state border. However, CRPF IG in Bihar Arun Kumar said Jharkhand police did not participate in the operation and it was just informed about the incident after the encounter was over.

A senior official said about 25 Maoists were trying to cross into Jharkhand from Bihar. This information put the state police on high alert. Security forces of 22 CRPF battalion from Hazaribag and 190 battalion from Chatra have already launched a search operation in the border area. Four additional companies of security forces are likely to be sent soon. Chatra, Palamu and Hazaribag districts have been alerted following Sunday’s incident. “The Maoists failed to carry out even a single incident during the Jharkhand assembly elections. We expect them to carry out such attacks during Bihar polls too,” CRPF IG Mishra said, adding that the security forces would not allow them to use Jharkhand’s soil to launch attacks in Bihar.

Chatra SP Surendra Kumar Jha is camping in Rajpur. Mishra also visited the area on Sunday where he took stock of the offensive launched against the invading Maoists. Another report from Bihar said eight Maoist activists, including a middle ranking commander, were arrested by the police under Konch police station in Gaya district. The arrests were made from the Punia Bigha hamlet. The arrested rebels, as per the police version, were involved in a number of Naxalite incidents in Gaya and Aurangabad districts including attack on the SAP camp under Goh police station in Aurangabad district and killing of a special police officer and several activists of the TPC, the rival Naxalite outfit. Police also decided to deploy four additional security forces in Chatra’s Rajpur police station area to stop Maoist infiltration.

Karnataka, Kerala courts send prisoner transit warrants for Roopesh

A Karnataka court has sent a warrant asking suspected Maoist leader Roopesh to be produced before the Penampet Court in Kodagu District on Monday (May 18). However, it is learnt that till late on Sunday evening he was not picked from the Coimbatore Central Prison by the Karnataka police. Courts in Karnataka and Kerala have sent prisoner transit warrants to the Coimbatore Central Prison asking Roopesh be produced before them in connection with alleged involvement in cases in those States.

These warrants have been sent immediately after Tamil Nadu police took custody of him and his four companions for 10 days, till Friday. A Kannur Court in Kerala has also sent a warrant asking Roopesh to be produced before it on Wednesday (May 20). Roopesh and his wife Shyna were among five persons who were arrested by ‘Q’ Branch Police at an eatery at Karumathampatty on May 4. Counsel of the arrested persons S. Balamurugan told The Hindu that police from the respective States should ensure safety of Roopesh as he and the others have raised the issue of threat to their lives from Kerala and Karnataka Police – when they were produced before the Coimbatore Court on Friday.

Claims of confession denied

The lawyer also denied claims that the Maoist had confessed to their role in any attacks, recalling that the five of them had mentioned this in the court. Counsel also said that it would be unfair on the part of the police to implicate all the unsolved cases on Roopesh and his companions.
