Italian Proletarian statement supporting peoples war in India

Posted by ajadhind on April 15, 2011

We, workers, temporary workers, unemployed, salute the struggle of the
Indian masses against the reactionary regime of India and imperialism
that supports it.

In India the masses struggle against the masters, who sack and exploit
them, against high prices, corruption and state terrorism, with huge
demonstrations and strikes, factory occupations, attacks against the
masters.
In India the government decided to sell the natural and human resources
to Western imperialist transnational companies and the owners of the new
monopolies of automobile and steel such as Tata, Essar, Jindal, Mittal,
etc. which draw profits from the uncontrolled exploitation of workers,
often women and children, profits that allow them to become purchasers
and shareholders of the big international monopolies in the sector, in
alliance with the western masters.

Against all this, Indian masses rise up and develop a people’s war led
by the party of the working class of India, the Communist Party of India
Maoist.

Against the rebel masses, the Indian government and imperialists
unleashed a repression, called “Green Hunt”, that is made of massacres,
summary executions, suppression of entire villages and sectors of the
population, to try sweep away what the masters of the world call “the
most serious internal threat and a danger to the international system”,
i.e. the people’s war that aims to establish the people’s power based on
the unity of workers and peasants, to overthrow the imperialists, the
bourgeoisie and the feudal classes.

The struggle for rights of workers and people, the struggle for jobs,
wages, better living conditions, the struggle for freedom and democracy,
the struggle to overthrow the power of the masters and for the power in
the hands of workers and the masses, is an international struggle that
unites us all over the world.

For this, we express the utmost solidarity with Indian masses, the party
leads them, for they reject the attacks of the enemy and advance to victory.

Tata sponsored ‘Green Hunt’ in Kalinga Nagar to destroy democratic tribal movement

Posted by ajadhind on April 9, 2010

Yesterday the Collector of Jajpur district assured Dabar Kalundia, a tribal leader of Bisthapan Birodhi Jan Manch (BBJM) that he would come to Baligotha village on 28 March for a meeting with the dissenting villagers and find a solution to the prevailing conflict. But within a day the Collector has broken his word as today about 24 platoons of armed policemen have been deployed in Kalinga Nagar to suppress the democratic & non-violent movement of the BBJM. It is feared that there will be bloodshed at a larger scale than 2 Jan 06 when 14 tribal men, women & children were killed in a police shootout. The villagers fear the police will attack tomorrow morning.

For more than 3 months now the resistance villages of Kalinga Nagar have been besieged by police forces who have randomly arrested dozens of villagers who stepped out of their village. People have been framed under false charges. There has been repeated midnight attacks by policemen and Tata goons to annihilate key activists of the BBJM. Hired assassins have also tried to eliminate the tribal leaders of the movement and one such attempt caused the death of Amin Banara of Baligotha village. Recently large number of police forces had been deployed on the pretext of building a road through the villages. Every attempt of the police and administration to quell the dissent of the people has been countered in democratic and non-violent ways by the BBJM.

The BBJM has clarified several times that it is not a Maoist backed organisation and does not want violence. The BBJM has made it clear that it will not accept displacement and mindless industrialisation that is already causing massive pollution in the area leading to widespread disease, crop failure, air, water & sound pollution. The Collector also agreed to the meeting only after the BBJM wrote several letters to him demanding that their concerns be addressed first as the Collector had been announcing in some meetings in the area that the Common Corridor Road would be built at any cost.

Surprisingly the print and electronic media have so far ignored developments in Kalinganagar which itself is a threat to democracy. Mainstream political parties also have reached a consensus with the ruling party which creates concerns among all citizens who understand the implications of mobilization of armed police in kalinganagar villages resisting Tata induced displacement.

We demand that the Govt should stop acting like a hired mercenary of Tata Steel company and withdraw all police forces from the area immediately. If there is any bloodshed the sole responsibility will lie on the Govt. The Govt should also give up the Common Corridor Road project as it will be built on fertile farm land and the community land of the tribals. The Govt should respect the sacrifice of the 14 tribals killed by the police and scrap the Tata project immediately. There should be no further displacement & dispossession of tribal people from their land. The Govt should immediately start working towards restoring peace in the area by assuring the tribals that there will be no attacks on them by the police or Tata goons. A medical team should be sent to the villages immediately as people have not been able to visit doctors for days in fear of arrest.

We appeal to all concerned citizens, progressive groups & media persons to raise their voice against the Fascist tendencies of the Govt and express solidarity with the tribals of Kalinga Nagar.
