21 - Message to the International Meeting of ICSPWI from RCP-PCR Canada



Dear comrades,
Receive our solidarity greetings on the occasion of the holding of the Second International Conference of Solidarity with the People’s War in India! Circumstances beyond our control prevent us from being physically present with you, but we celebrate with you the 10th anniversary of the glorious Communist Party of India (Maoist) as we reaffirm our support to the International Committee to Support the People’s War in India and its objectives.
We are confident that this meeting will mark a step forward in the vital solidarity work that revolutionary communists, anti -imperialists and progressives of all countries should develop with our comrades and the broad masses of India, who are fighting with great courage and determination for national liberation, New Democracy and socialism against a reactionary state that is well integrated into the world imperialist system and is supported by all the big imperialist powers.
The events that occurred since the successful holding of the First International Conference in November 2012 in Hamburg make it even more necessary and urgent the deployment of a broad solidarity with the revolutionaries of India.
In India, the reactionary state is continuing its efforts to crush the people’s war. Since the launching of Operation Green Hunt five years ago, the repressive forces of the Indian state attacked indiscriminately the masses who support the people’s war and are taking part in the building of a new power. The goal of this vast operation, which takes the form of a war against the people, is to eliminate the soil from which the movement that has already begun to shake the old state and the reactionary classes is taking shape.
This war has already inflicted terrible suffering and made thousands of victims among the people of India. But it did not succeed in destroying nor extinguishing the aspirations for liberation of the masses of this country, which are embodied in the movement led by our comrades from the CPI (Maoist). By launching  Operation Green Hunt, the Indian state acted as reactionaries of all countries who, as Comrade Mao Zedong pointed out, “lift a stone only to drop it on their own feet.”
In fact, the massacres perpetrated by the representatives of the Indian state have prompted different sectors of Indian society to condemn them and show solidarity with the Maoists. The same thing happened abroad—albeit on a smaller scale—where thousands of voices were heard denouncing Operation Green Hunt and the all-out repression exercised by the Indian state.
The broadening of the mobilization in solidarity with the masses of India is intolerable for the reactionary state. This is the reason for the hysterical response of Indian authorities to the setting up of the International Committee to Support the People’s War in India and the holding of the Hamburg conference. This also explains the recent campaign launched by the Indian state against progressive and democratic sectors, organizations and activists who dared to denounce Operation Green Hunt and defend the legitimacy of the revolutionary movement.
The cowardly arrest of Professor GN Saibaba and dozens of other activists aims both to terrorize the urban masses and discourage them of supporting the struggle of the Adivasis and poor peasants, and to isolate the Maoist revolutionaries.
In the long term, these attempts are futile and doomed to failure: history has repeatedly shown that even the worst repression can never stifle the aspirations to liberation of the proletarian and popular masses. In the short term, however, they pose a real challenge and there is an urgent need to stop them and to inflict a defeat to the reactionary state.
The work done since its inception by the International Committee to Support the People’s War in India is already considerable. The initiatives it took and the international days of action it called for have brought together the genuine revolutionary forces and encouraged them to take action and bring to the fore the issue of the revolution going on in India and the role played by the CPI (Maoist) in this process.
We believe that this work must continue and grow with the objective of building an even larger movement in solidarity with the people of India. As we stated at the Hamburg conference, we think that there is no contradiction between supporting the people’s war and developing a broad mass movement against Operation Green Hunt and the repression enforced by the Indian state. Indeed, the existence of such an anti-imperialist and democratic movement can only serve the continuation of people’s war until its victory.
In the short term, the building of such a movement is the main task of the parties and organizations that want to support the people’s war in India. That is why we supported and we are still supportive of the International Campaign Against War on the People of India (ICAWPI). As much as we need to bring together and unite the genuine communists behind the banner of Maoism that is uphold with courage and determination by the CPI (Maoist) comrades, we must also dare to mobilize and unite all the forces that could oppose the anti-people war being waged by the Indian state—whether they are in agreement or not with all of the objectives of the People’s War and the New Democratic Revolution in India.
And insofar as we consider such a movement necessary, it is a responsibility for supporters of the People’s War than to build this campaign, even if it seems to be less active than it was when it was launched a few years ago and if the comrades in charge of this campaign are no longer able to reply to emails that one could send to them.
It is in this context that we support the coming international delegation as a unique opportunity to confront the reactionary state, condemn Operation Green Hunt and the all-out repression against the people and expose the hypocrisy of the so-called “largest democracy in the world” that the imperialists and reactionaries will cherish and defend by all means.
Full success to the International Meeting in Support to the People's War in India!
Long Live the Communist Party of India (Maoist)!
Move heaven and earth to stop the war against the people of India!

Chers camarades,
Chères camarades,

Recevez nos salutations solidaires à l’occasion de la tenue de la deuxième conférence internationale de solidarité avec la guerre populaire en Inde ! Des circonstances hors de notre contrôle nous empêchent d’être présentes et présents physiquement avec vous, mais nous tenons néanmoins à célébrer avec vous le dixième anniversaire du glorieux Parti communiste de l’Inde (maoïste) et à réaffirmer notre appui au Comité international de solidarité avec la guerre populaire en Inde et à ses objectifs.
Nous sommes confiants que cette conférence marquera un bond en avant dans l’essentiel travail de solidarité que les révolutionnaires communistes, anti-impérialistes et progressistes de tous les pays doivent développer avec les camarades de l’Inde et avec les masses populaires de ce pays, qui luttent avec courage et détermination pour la libération nationale, la démocratie nouvelle et le socialisme contre un État réactionnaire bien intégré dans le système impérialiste mondial et soutenu par les grandes puissances impérialistes.
À notre avis, les événements qui se sont produits depuis la tenue fructueuse de la première conférence internationale en novembre 2012 rendent encore plus nécessaire et urgent le déploiement d’un vaste mouvement de solidarité avec les révolutionnaires de l’Inde.
En Inde, l’État réactionnaire poursuit son offensive visant à écraser la guerre populaire. Depuis le déclenchement de l’opération Green Hunt il y a cinq ans, les forces répressives de l’État indien attaquent sans discernement les masses populaires qui soutiennent la guerre populaire et participent à la construction d’un nouveau pouvoir populaire. Cette vaste opération, qui prend la forme d’une véritable guerre contre les masses populaires, vise à éliminer le terreau à partir duquel prend forme et s’organise le mouvement qui a déjà commencé à ébranler le vieil État et les classes réactionnaires qui le soutiennent.
Cette guerre a déjà infligé de terribles souffrances et fait des milliers de victimes parmi les peuples de l’Inde. Mais elle n’a pas réussi à détruire, ni encore moins à éteindre les aspirations à la libération des masses populaires de ce pays, qui s’incarnent dans le mouvement de lutte dirigé par nos camarades du Parti communiste de l’Inde (maoïste). En déclenchant l’opération Green Hunt, l’État indien a agi comme les réactionnaires de tous les pays qui, comme le camarade Mao Zedong le soulignait, « soulèvent une pierre pour se la laisser retomber sur les pieds ».
De fait, les massacres perpétrés par les représentants de l’État indien ont incité de nombreux secteurs de la société indienne à condamner la répression et à se solidariser avec les révolutionnaires maoïstes. Le même phénomène s’est produit – quoique à une échelle plus réduite – ailleurs dans le monde, où des milliers de voix se sont fait entendre pour dénoncer l’opération Green Hunt et la répression tous azimuts exercée par l’État indien.
L’élargissement de la mobilisation et de la solidarité avec les masses populaires de l’Inde est intolérable pour l’État réactionnaire. C’est ce qui explique la réaction hystérique des autorités indiennes à la mise sur pied du Comité international de solidarité avec la guerre populaire en Inde et à la tenue de la conférence de Hambourg. C’est aussi ce qui explique l’offensive récente de l’État indien contre les secteurs, organisations et militantes et militants progressistes et démocratiques qui ont osé dénoncer l’opération Green Hunt et défendre la légitimité du mouvement révolutionnaire.
La lâche arrestation du professeur GN Saibaba et de douzaines d’autres militantes et militants vise d’une part à terroriser les masses en milieu urbain pour les dissuader d’appuyer la lutte des pauvres, des Adivasis et des masses paysannes opprimées, et d’autre part à isoler les révolutionnaires maoïstes.
À moyen et long termes, ces tentatives sont vaines et vouées à l’échec : l’histoire a maintes fois démontré que la pire répression ne pourra jamais étouffer l’aspiration des masses prolétariennes et populaires à la libération. À court terme, toutefois, il y a là un enjeu réel et un urgent besoin de stopper la répression et d’infliger une défaite à l’État réactionnaire.
Le travail accompli par le Comité international de solidarité avec la guerre populaire en Inde depuis sa mise sur pied est considérable. Les initiatives qu’il a prises et les journées internationales d’action qu’il a organisées ont permis de rassembler les forces révolutionnaires authentiques, de les faire passer à l’action et de mettre au premier plan l’enjeu que représente la révolution en cours en Inde et le rôle joué par le PCI (maoïste) dans ce processus.
Nous sommes d’avis que ce travail doit se poursuivre et se développer dans la perspective de créer un mouvement encore plus large en solidarité avec les masses populaires de l’Inde. Comme nous l’avons exprimé à la conférence de Hambourg, nous croyons qu’il n’y pas de contradiction entre le fait de soutenir la guerre populaire et de développer un large mouvement de masse contre l’opération Green Hunt et la répression exercée par l’État indien. De fait, l’existence d’un tel mouvement anti-impérialiste et démocratique par essence ne peut que favoriser la poursuite de la guerre populaire jusqu’à la victoire.
À court terme, la construction d’un tel mouvement est la tâche principale des partis et organisations solidaires de la guerre populaire en Inde. C’est pourquoi nous avons appuyé et continuons de soutenir la « campagne internationale contre la guerre antipopulaire en Inde ». Autant avons-nous besoin de rassembler et d’unir les communistes authentiques derrière la bannière du maoïsme portée avec courage et détermination par les camarades du PCI (maoïste), autant nous devons avoir l’audace de mobiliser et d’unir toutes les forces qui peuvent l’être contre la guerre antipopulaire actuellement menée par l’État indien – qu’elles soient d’accord, ou pas, avec la totalité des objectifs poursuivis par la guerre populaire et la révolution de démocratie nouvelle en Inde.
Dans la mesure où l’on considère nécessaire un tel mouvement, cela devient aussi la tâche des partisanes et partisans de la guerre populaire que de le construire, même si la campagne lancée il y a quelques années sous ce thème semble moribonde et que ses responsables ne sont plus en mesure de répondre aux courriels qu’on leur envoie.
C’est dans cette optique que nous comptons soutenir la délégation internationale en formation – une occasion unique de confronter l’État réactionnaire, de dénoncer l’opération Green Hunt et la répression tous azimuts contre les masses populaires et de démasquer l’hypocrisie de la prétendue « plus grande démocratie au monde » que les impérialistes et les réactionnaires chérissent et vont défendre à tout prix, jusqu’à y faire couler le sang.
Plein succès à la deuxième conférence internationale de solidarité avec la guerre populaire en Inde !
Longue vie au Parti communiste de l’Inde (maoïste) !
Remuons ciel et terre pour stopper la guerre contre les masses populaires de l’Inde !

20 - From Tunisia - Message to the International Meetin in support of People's War in India



From the country where the "Arab Spring" took place, where the masses shook and toppled down pro-imperialist regimes, our militant and internationalist support reaches the People's War in India and the party leading it.
Although Tunisia is a small country of 10 million people in North Africa, it gained, especially in recent years, a considerable importance for the revolutionary development in the region. After the first the miners' strike of Gafsa and Métlaoui in the south of the country in 2008, on December 2010, the uprising against the decades-long regime of Ben Ali broke out in Sidi Bouzid, again in the south of the country. Since the days of Bourguiba, the first president of "independent" Tunisia tied to the French imperialist bourgeoisie, this area has been doomed to the economic and social underdevelopment by the domestic comprador bourgeoisie mainly base in Tunis and the cities on the coast. Against this condition, the strikes by miners and other people’s masses (mainly of the youth) in the South of the country, increasingly extended to workers, youth, women across the country, including the petty and middle bourgeoisie and the intellectuals. Massive strikes combined with roadblocks and attacks on the hated army barracks and police stations across the country led to the fall of the regime. All this recent history is well-known.
What is perhaps less well known, even within our movement, is how varied the presence of the Maoists in Tunisia is. There are different groups and parties operating both in the biggest cities and the countryside. These comrades together carry out revolutionary work among the different sectors of society and are at the forefront in the support to the PW in India and the party that leads it. As he Maoist Communist Movement in Tunisia wrote in the message to the International Conference in Hamburg: "We are proud of the progress made by the CPI (Maoist), especially since 2004, year of its formation, and we congratulate the militants and fighters who, thanks to their determination and bravery, were able to free up one third of the "Indian" territory and founded the people’s power, the new democratic power." And, as the Maoist Communist Organization in Tunisia wrote for the same occasion: "As Maoist Communist Organization in Tunisia we would have taken part in this international conference to express our support for the People's War in India led by our comrades of the Indian Communist Party (Maoist)."
This solidarity consists not only of the words sent to Conference in Hamburg by these organizations belonging of the wider Maoist Tunisian movement but also of actions the comrades carry out in the daily struggles they lead.
For example, the students front, particularly in the university, where the organized form of the students, the student union UGET, is heavily influenced by the social-democrat parties of the Popular Front, the support to the PW in India implies a sharp theoretical and ideological struggle against those who advocate the peaceful means and electoral road to socialism. Leafleting, solidarity messages from students Tunisian, meetings in the have been organized in recent years with this purpose. Some art students put their skills at the service of the latest international campaigns, realizing hand-drawn posters.
Another example is the support to political prisoners, whose struggle is all the more broad and important in Tunisia, a country where the youth who participated in the revolt against old regime and continue fearing even the current one, of so-called "transition" (indeed restoration) and other opponents in general are arrested, beaten and tortured. On the last day of June 19, dedicated to Saibaba, chairman for the RDF arrested by the Indian regime, the comrades of the MCM-T issued a message and a poster to create a "bridge" of struggle against the suppression ongoing both in Tunisia and India. As in the words of the message sent to the Hamburg Conference: "We understand the ferocity of imperialism and its servants against the revolutionary movement and the people's war in particular, we understand why they have done their utmost to derail the uprisings in the Arab countries in their favour. Without revolutionary leadership, these spontaneous uprisings could not go far, even if the masses continue to fight with teeth and nails."
Lenin said that the best example of proletarian internationalism is to make revolution in own country, In Tunisia as in India, the revolutionary strategy is the Protracted People's War, with the creation of liberated zones in the countryside to encircle the cities. Tunisia has vast areas of the countryside and over the past few decades there have been experiences of armed struggle, particularly in the North-west and South of the country, where guerrilla units such as Fellagha led encirclement campaigns against the colonial forces in the years of the national liberation struggle, 1952-1954. Unfortunately, from these favorable objective conditions in Tunisia currently take advantage only the jihadist groups which can easily move and realize actions through he porous borders with Algeria and Libya. We must also learn from the last revolt, that showed the rebel character and a prominent role of young workers from outskirts and suburbs. Right two days ago, other youth we can say "democrats" organized "the first demonstration against the ISIL in an Arab and Muslim country." We do not know exactly the nature of this protest. In any case, to develop a relentless struggle against Islamic fascism represented by forces such as ISIS is a necessity since they are an obstacle for the revolutionary forces. We have to take into account all these elements in the application of the general strategy of the PW.
The Islamist hegemony is a problem that affects the entire Arab world, where currently many armed groups turn to jihad and no revolutionary organization develops armed struggle, excepted some forces in Iraq. It is obvious that in order to assert the path of PPW in the countries of the North Africa and Middle East, the first goal to achieve, it the theoretical and political defeat of Islamist movements and groups, which often rely mass support (This problem is most evident in Palestine with Hamas).
Secondly, there is the struggle against neo-revisionist forces.
This work serves the growth and strengthening of Maoist parties in the countries of the region by joining the Maoists in the ideological struggle against existing deviations, as the pan-Arabism, that looks at non-proletarian theories and forces disguised as "anti-imperialist", as Baathism, Nasserism and even Islamism, arguing a "united fronts"with reactionary forces such as Hezbollah or Hamas, holding them as "nationalist".
It is a serious issue. Particularly the contradiction within the people arising from the influence that the Islamic religion on the masses of Middle East North Africa region. For this reason, the interesting debate started in the International Meeting "From the uprisings to the revolution in the Arab countries" held in Paris on 2011 has to go on and be deepened.
The events of the last few months concerning the ISIL show once again that the reactionary religious movements are mirrors of imperialism. They both oppress the masses. Because of the lacking of a Maoist leadership in the region, the fight against ISIS is waged by a front including imperialists and Zionists, the same who sponsored the ISIL in anti-Syrian function, the pro-imperialist Iraqi Kurdish peshmerga, the Syrian Kurds of YPG, who claim to be anti-imperialist but welcomed the bombing of imperialism on Syria. The victory of this front will not solve the problems of the masses.
The Maoist parties and organizations in Turkey, Kurdistan and Iraq can and must be a solution for this situation.
In Palestine, the hegemony of Hamas on the one hand and, on the other hand, the revisionists do not allow the Palestinian people to undertake the path of the PW.
The People's War in India and the party that leads it, whose tenth anniversary we celebrate today, as well as other people's wars, are an ideological beacon for the development of Maoism in the MENA region and to assert the path of the PW.
As put by the comrades of the Maoist Communist Movement in Tunisia in the Conference in Hamburg: "We state that the people's war in India is our war, because imperialism and its lackeys launched a war on the workers, exploited and oppressed peoples all-around the world, and in front of this violence of the reactionary state, only the People's War led by the Maoist Communist Party can lead to the victory, the liberation and the construction of people’s power, the new democracy, opening the road to socialism."
We wish that the anniversary of the formation of CPI (Maoist) be a good omen for the birth of new Maoist parties which launch people’s wars in North Africa and the Middle East, historical necessary opportunity at the service of the world proletarian revolution.
