Report of International Committee of Support Peoples War in India
Introduction and Report of International Committee of Support Peoples War in India
On behalf of the International Committee we welcome and greet to all
comrades and organizations attending here, all those who participate through
messages, all those who are developing similar initiatives on the same
occasion in these days, all those who support the people's war in India
throughout the world, although they can not celebrate with us the 10th
anniversary of the CPI (Maoist) which guides, organizes and, we are
confident, will lead it to victory.
The meeting we hold today is not the 2nd International Conference we had
proposed and planned after the highly successful Conference in Hamburg on
November 24, 2012.
We had proposed to hold this 2nd Conference in another great country,
outside Europe, in Brazil, at the center of the world clash between
imperialism and peoples, where right this year we have seen an explosion of
the class struggle and popular uprising and where the supporters of PW in
India are numerous and have a strong mass base. Also to allow also many
forces in Latin America to take part directly in the Conference, so as it
was not possible at the Conference in Hamburg.
This decision is consistent with the very nature of the International
Committee, that works to unite the peoples of the world in support to PW in
India, according to the concept "in the fire of class struggle and closely
tied with the masses."
However, the comrades in Brazil told us that they were not yet in condition
to organize such a conference and pointed out also the need to keep high the
struggle and the support to the PW in the imperialist Europe. We accepted
their assessment but we keep our idea and we will propose again to work to
realize the 2nd International Conference in Brazil in the next period.
In no way we could leave the important occasion of the 10th anniversary of
the formation of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) without a struggling
and supporting event. Therefore, relying on our own forces, we decided to
organize an international and internationalist meeting in the same month in
which the celebration of the 10th anniversary is unleashed in India, in the
fire of the PW and withstanding the genocidal state repression by the Indian
regime, that in these days is going on.
So, our meeting is with the delegates who accepted the proposal of the
It is carried out in a confidential form, according to the concrete
conditions of the country and the place where we are. Its aim is to open
rather than conclude the initiatives of support for the 10th anniversary
throughout the world, looking at the goal of the 2nd International
The meeting is an opportunity to allow all the attending forces, and after
them all the forces participating in different ways, to debate, to plan the
continuation of the activities of the Committee with the existing proposals,
first of all the International Delegation to India, as well as any other
initiative the participants will put forward and suggest.
The meeting will be opened by the reading of the message the CPI (M)
prepared for this occasion, as its own participation.
In India a tumultuous people's war develops against imperialism,
bureaucratic capitalism, the comprador bourgeoisie and feudalism.
The people's war started in the areas where the roots of the revolt against
poverty, capitalist and tribal exploitation are deeper, and where the
contradictions produced by the development made of looting of resources,
caste oppression and exploitation by a capitalism tied and subservient to
imperialism are sharper.
This people's war continues the epic story of the extraordinary peasant
armed uprising in Naxalbari. With the unification of Maoists, heirs of
Naxalbari, in the formation of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), the PW
found a new level of guide, leadership and program.
The 10 years since from this formation showed the strength of armed masses
led by a Maoist communist party; thanks to the leadership of this party, the
People's War has spread across the country and has built its bases in about
a third of it. Thus, the PW has become the main internal threat to the
Indian regime and imperialism in a crucial region of the world. This PW that
has spread his message and his strength among the oppressed masses of the
This is the ground of the birth of the International Committee, the
development of the support to the PW that was extended to many countries,
through both unified campaigns and other independent initiatives. This
reached a milestone with 1st International Conference in Hamburg, organized
by the Committee and the League Against the Imperialist Aggression (BGIA).
Especially after that Conference, the movement of support to the PW and the
ICSPWI have also become a danger for the Indian regime and imperialism. They
are taking steps to urge other governments to stop this solidarity and
support and to hit those who turn them into an organized form of a potential
powerful movement that is developing step by step.
The Indian regime unleashed the most fierce repression against struggling
people. The massive Operation Green Hunt is a veritable manhunt in which the
poor people who rebel in India are treated as animals to be exterminated. It
is a multi-pronged countrywide offensive launched the Indian regime against
its own people, using extensively super armed troops, now even drones,
police and paramilitary forces, which sow terror and genocide in the
villages, with raids, deportations, mass killings and rapes.
The target of this repression is the CPI (Maoist), its cadres, leaders,
members, sympathizers, not only in the areas of struggle but also within
cities, in the universities and among all classes and social sectors which
support or sympathize with the PW, the Maoist rebellion, the armed uprising
of the masses.
In order to conduct this Operation, the Indian regime had to gradually drop
the mask of "the largest democracy in the world" and put the command in the
hands of a new Hindu fascist regime, the Modi's new regime. The revolution
always engenders a powerful counter-revolution, that today strikes
indiscriminately seeking to wipe out any political opposition in India.
In the past week, the Modi's regime unleashed the repression not only
against the PW, the People's Army, but also against the Forum for a
Alternative Politics. As Com. Varavara Rao said: "the Modi government is
planning to launch a full-scale war against Maoist rebels and the people led
by them . building a war-hysteria against Maoist rebels . at the behest of
some big corporate bodies who want to control and plunder our resources."
But more repression, more oppression, only feed the movement of rebellion
and the opposition itself. Hitting the Forum, the government shows its
strategic and class weakness, in front of those who say "The people are with
us. They will definitely welcome our initiative as we are promoting
self-rule and more powers to landless and oppressed sections of society."
The International Committee of Support to the PW in India expresses the
strongest solidarity with Com. Varavara Rao and the participants in the
Forum for an Alternative Politics, it demands their immediate release and
calls to all revolutionary, anti-imperialist and progressive forces in the
world to develop initiatives for a political mobilization.
The repression can not stop the great celebrations of the 10th anniversary,
because it can not stop the advance of the people and their vanguard.
We want quote here the answer of Arundhati Roy to a reporter who asked her
what is difference between the Maoists and the people, referring to the
areas in which the people's war and the mass movement led by Maoists
develop. Arundhati replied: "None. Maoists and people are the same thing. "
The development of the support to the PW has to bring to the masses not only
the strength of the armed initiatives of People's Army but also the nature
of people's movements led by the party, and involved in and inspired by the
PW, as well as what the People's Revolutionary Committees achieve in areas
where the PW formed them.
The armed struggle develops in the forests, in the countryside, as armed
resistance to the raids to destroy villages and deport the villagers.
Without this resistance, villages and villagers would be wiped out, in a
contention in which the development of capitalism is asserted and the right
to exist of people is denied.
As we wrote in the founding call of ICSPWI: "Indian masses led by the CPI
(M) are writing a historic page in the current clash of classes in the
world. We have to help to make clear for the world proletariat that the
advancement of the PW in India put into question the balance of power not
only in South Asia but in the whole structure of the world imperialist
The International Committee develops as a centre of action and propaganda in
which, step by step, those who want to support the PW can take part both in
a unitary and unified or a coordinated way. The increasing extension of the
campaigns in about 60 countries shows the international role of the
Committee. International Campaigns and Days of Actions have the purpose to
give everyone a chance to participate and join the support.
The imperialist system is not able to get out of its worst crisis since the
30s. All attempts to deal with and overcome the crisis fail, because the
crisis itself originates form the very functioning of the imperialist system
today. On the world scene, even in the crisis we witness a widening gap
between the wealth of a handful of imperialist countries and the poverty of
three-quarters of humanity in the countries oppressed by imperialism, the
wealth in the hands of the bourgeoisie and the absolute and relative
impoverishment of the proletariat and the masses in the imperialist
countries. And, in countries as India, the overflowing richness of a
parasitic comprador bureaucratic bourgeoisie and the conditions of misery
and hunger in which the masses live.
For this reason, the PW is well inside the response of the peoples to this
situation and the crisis of the system; and it is this that the PW is the
objective and subjective spearhead of the struggle of the oppressed masses
in the world. Therefore, the support is not mere solidarity but
participation in this global war against imperialism.
The 10th anniversary shows that where the guide of the people's rebellion is
a communist party, the rebellion of the masses is not prey and pawn of
inter-imperialistic contention, it is not in the hands of the feudal
reactionary forces who ride the rebellion to channel it in the plans of
ruling classes or even to push back the wheel of history. Therefore, the
support for the PW is also a way to help to assert this trend everywhere the
rebellion of the people goes on.
We can properly understand the importance of the PW and the reasons to
support it if we see it in the context of the international situation.
In the analysis of the world today, on the one hand, the inter-imperialist
contradictions that can lead to a third world war, become sharper, on the
other hand the factors of the revolution are nourished and the principal
contradiction in the world today emerges clearly. The PW in India becomes
objectively an indispensable point of reference to be placed inside the main
contradiction and the main trend in the world today.
The Committee to support the PW will not reduce its action to the exposure
of the Indian regime, although it is also an essential and crucial part of
its activities, but it works to rise the awareness and recognition of the
ground of class and anti-imperialist unity existing between India and the
countries in which the Committee operates.
In India, the government has decided to sell the natural and human resources
of the country to the western imperialist multinationals, to new monopolies
of the masters of automotive and steel plants, such as Tata, Essar, Jindal,
Mittal. From the fierce exploitation of workers, often women and children,
they draw the profits that allow them to become buyers and shareholders of
the big international monopolies in the respective sector, in alliance with
the owners in the imperialist countries.
On this base, the unity among the workers in the imperialist countries and
the workers and oppressed masses in India can and must be developed.
Through actions, information, the Committee has an important role to play.
The war on people in the heart of India and the rise of the Fascist Hindu
regime fills the country of rapes. Rapes on women guerrillas, women of the
people, in the war; as well as serial rapes in the false modernized big
cities, in the universities, etc.
The struggle of women in India and the participation of women in the PW make
their movement in India an inspiration for women in all countries in the
world. And the ICSPWI will help to gather more and more the powerful forces
of this movement.
The PW in India is bound to change the face of the second most populous
country in the world, to embody the spirit of changing that inspires the
rebel youth in many countries around the world, including the imperialist
citadels. To spread the achievements, the lessons, the nature of the
conflict in India, between state repression and armed rebellion of people,
is a source and a stimulus to give an actually revolutionary orientation to
rebellion of youth.
In this sense the line, the practice of ICSPWI is much more than an
organization of solidarity. It is a weapon and an added value for all
communist, revolutionary, anti-imperialist forces in the world.
This is the base of unity, reached in full autonomy, with the PW in India,
with the CPI (Maoist), of which we celebrate the 10th anniversary.
This meeting is a step on this path, that can not be stopped and we all
together have to move forward serving the liberation of the proletariat and
It is important to assert this while in India, every day, our martyrs, the
best sons and daughters of people, our comrades, fall down. But from the
heart of that country, however, the voice of their message resounds in the
voice and message of the CPI (Maoist): "Finally, before we conclude, we wish
to speak about the great efforts you are doing in support of the people's
war in India. The news of your campaigns, its vivid images, are being taken
to our ranks, PLGA combatants and revolutionary masses as widely as possible
through our open and secret magazines and several other means. When they
know that their sisters and brothers in far off lands stand up in militant
solidarity with them, when they see images of protests before Indian
embassies, of wall writings taking the message of their revolution to masses
in those countries, their hearts swell with pride - we are not alone, our
people are there, we are everywhere. Your acts have inspired us; they have
made us more determined. We will strive our utmost to fulfil the confidence
you have reposed in us."
And we can say from this meeting that our action will be at the height of
DEATH TO INDIAN REGIME !
