CPI(Maoist) and MCP Manipur Joint Statement Against Obama’s Visit To India

Joint Statment of Communist Party of India (Maoist) and Maoist Communist Party Manipur.

Unite in struggle against the Indian state!

Under the signboard of globalisation, structural adjustment and open market economy world imperialism has announced its global agenda to further intensify the domination, exploitation and oppression of the people. The current global crisis of world imperialism has further sharpened its attacks, bringing about the inevitability of even more misery, horror, devastation and war, on a world scale. The proletariat and the oppressed people of the world continue to resist this agenda by raising revolutionary struggles, against imperialism and the subservient reactionary ruling classes of different countries, generating a new wave of people struggles all over the world, particularly in the oppressed countries. As Mao had formulated, the oppressed countries constitute the storm centres of world revolution and revolution is the main trend in the world today.

The region of South Asia continues to provide a concentrated expression of this truth. South Asia, with more than 1/5th of the world population, is a simmering volcano, as recognised by the imperialists themselves. All the major contradictions in the region are intensifying and call for revolutionary solutions.

In India, national liberation movements are continuing in Kashmir, Assam, Nagaland and Manipur. The protracted people’s war continues to rage in Central and Eastern India and is now opening up a new front in the South West. Various people’s struggles against imperialism and the reactionary ruling classes are also surging forward. India forcibly maintains the oppressed nationalities under its hegemony. Not only does the Indian army of occupation crush their just demands with utmost brutality, they have been pitting one section of the people against the other to drown their just struggles in oceans of blood. This is to be seen in Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, Kashmir and Central and Eastern India. Naga regiments are deployed in the latter against the people’s war and Indian Army is deployed in Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, Tripura and Meghalaya to suppress the national liberation movements.

The Indian state is more and more functioning as the regional gendarme of US imperialism and thus fulfilling its expansionist ambitions, suppressing people’s movements in the sub-continent. Indian rulers have been even more crudely intervening in the internal affairs of neighbouring countries like Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Maldives. The recent visits of the Indian Prime Minister to various countries in Asia and hobnobbing with US and other imperialists are new steps to preserve and consolidate its political and economic hegemony in South Asia region, contending with China. Barack Obama, the US President, comes as chief guest for the Indian expansionists’ show off parade of the 26th to promote this and tighten US control. The Indian expansionist state backed by world imperialism, particularly US imperialism, constitutes the common enemy of the peoples of South Asia.

The Modi regime of the BJP is transforming the state into a fascist apparatus to crush all types of democratic movements in India, surpassing all its predecessors. It is attacking worker’s rights and going all out to deepen imperialist penetration of the economy. It is imposing Brahmanic fascist values in all spheres of society. The main thrust of this offensive is a new phase of the ‘war on people’ (Operation Green Hunt) aimed at destroying the on-going protracted people’s war and intensification of suppression of various national movements. This means more fake encounters (of both revolutionaries and common people), more loot, destruction, mayhem, tortures and atrocities on people, more attacks, political and physical, on any kind of opposition, more trampling of civil rights, and more severe repression in various forms on political prisoners incarcerated in prisons all over the country.

State violence in India is institutionalised through constitutional immunity to the police, the paramilitary and the army. The most notorious form of this is the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (1958). The AFSPA has its roots in British colonial legislation dating back to the mid-19th century. More directly, it was based on a British colonial ordinance, called the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Ordinance promulgated in 1942 to assist in suppressing the “Quit India Movement”, part of the struggle against British colonialism. The AFSPA has been operative for years together in large parts of the Northeast region of India and in Jammu Kashmir. The AFSPA empowers security forces to arrest and enter property without warrant, to shoot to kill, even in circumstances where they are not at imminent risk. It’s a license to kill and rape when they want. It has facilitated grave human rights abuses, including extrajudicial execution, “disappearance”, rape and torture. Declaring an area a “disturbed area” and granting the military extensive powers is in practice imposing an undeclared emergency regime. The AFSPA has allowed members of the armed forces to perpetrate abuses with impunity. They have been shielded by clauses in the AFSPA that prohibit prosecutions from being initiated without permission from the Central government. Such permission is rarely granted.

If the AFSPA allows the most heinous suppression to be legitimised by the constitutional standards of the Indian state, all of this and worse is being done as part of ‘Operation Green Hunt’ in the battle zones of the people’s war led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) in Central and Eastern India, without any pretence of legality and even in open violation of judicial sanctions. Here the victims are mainly the adivasis and dalits at the bottommost layers of society. In a span of ten years nearly two thousand have been killed and countless more brutally tortured, and jailed. This brutal multi-pronged countrywide offensive on people’s various resistances, particularly targeting the Maoist movement, has been raging unabated, since its launch in mid-2009 by the UPA-2 government till date. Preparations for its Third Phase are going on at a rapid pace under the fascist NDA Government.

The peoples of Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram, Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya and Jammu Kashmir have been for long victims of the Indian state’s counter insurgency operations. Thousands have been killed by the heartless Indian armed forces. In Manipur alone, according to rough estimates, eight thousand nine hundred and eighty three beloved people have been killed, under the AFSPA. The sixteen lakh indigenous population in Manipur live under the jackboots of one lakh Indian armed forces killers equipped with sophisticated weapons.

This is the real face of Indian ‘democracy’. This is the reality of the Indian Republic. It is a prison house of nations. It is a sweathouse for imperialism and its comprador lackeys. It is a torture chamber for the oppressed and exploited.

We appeal to the people, to the oppressed nationalities and the exploited, all over India,

Let us all unite to overthrow the Indian state and destroy this monstrosity!

Let us support each other in our struggles!

Let us advance along the path of protracted people’s war guided by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!

Let us fan the flames of new democratic revolution and thus serve the cause of the world socialist revolution!

Signed,

Communist Party of India (Maoist)

Please accept our revolutionary greetings to the National Leadership, all the members of your party and the revolutionary masses led by you. The presence of Maoist revolutionary pole in the United States with its Proletarian Internationalist Communist traditions is of great importance in our common struggle and we esteem your support.

“Your support in the true internationalist spirit, has given the necessary moral support to the oppressed peoples and the comrades who fight the Indian Expansionism in Manipur as a part of the world socialist revolution.”

‘Proletarians of the world unite’ is an example of how to bring change in the world at large. Since this very slogan of Karl Marx has reached in the soil of Manipur now, the universal proletarian Ideology of Maoism is mushrooming in the minds of the new generation of Manipuri youngsters. Maoist Communist Party Manipur of which representing the new generation of Manipur, will fight peoples war with the true Internationalist sprit. The development of Maoist movement in terms of expansion, advancement and greater extension of strength around the globe engender courage and provides moral support to each and every Maoist of Manipur.

Our party, which further carries on the legacy of Lamyanba Hijam Irabot led Communist Movement, has developed the New Democratic revolution as an integral part of the world socialist revolution. We are being prepared in every quarter for a New Democratic Revolution and have been advancing. Our task is to complete the revolution led by Lamyanba Hijam Irabot by adopting the universal proletarian ideology Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as guiding principal of the party.

The New Democratic Revolution in the semi-feudal and semi-colonial, neo-colonial and colonial countries and the socialist revolutions in the capitalist-imperialist countries, which form the two streams of the world socialist revolution and the Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is more and more grasped by the people as their guiding ideology. People are becoming gradually aware that the imperialists, their lackeys/puppets ruler in the oppressed countries and all kinds of reactionaries are common enemies of all the oppressed peoples and nations in the world, and join more and more in the fighting ranks. All the basic contradictions in the world and in every country increase and intensify day by day.The world situation is excellent for the Proletarian revolution. Thus, the urgent task of communists everywhere in the world is to take the excellent objective conditions to politically mobilize and consolidate the oppressed masses and strengthen the subjective forces, because only a strong proletarian party and consolidated masses can successfully make revolution.

The International Event to be organized by The New Communist Party-Liaison Committee with a great role has become a new message to the people of Manipur. With this the Maoist Communist Party Manipur will be able to battle without remorse and evacuation as if the organizer has taught and directed us a new true path of Revolution with a new courage. The solidarity shown by Red Guards -Los Angeles in the very moment of the party being formed and strengthening gradually since last year, is much worth of and valued of utmost and it will wide-awake the people of Manipur in particular. This type of solidarity gives great confidence to the People of Manipur, convincing that they are not alone in their struggle.

Today, we are made feel much proud of the irreplaceable red blood of the Martyrs, sacrificed by our inimitable comrades in the efforts of the formation and development of Maoist movement, as their red blood has amalgamated in the ocean of World Socialist Revolution. We pledge before all of you that we would carry on the lofty aims of all great martyrs of the world proletarian revolution and announce that no amount of fascist repression can subdue the fighting spirit of our Party and the revolutionary people of Manipur. We will march forward with enhanced determination braving all kinds of odds and making sacrifices till the final victory. This is our promise to the international proletariat, to all the friends and well-wishers of Manipur revolution.

Long live the proletarian Internationalism!
Long Live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Yawolna Yaifare.
