Democracy and Class Struggle Statement on Victory for No Campaign in Scottish Referendum






Democracy and Class Struggle says the ScottishIndependence with its 1.6 million votes is no longer just a politicalmovement but a social movement with deep roots.

The radical independence movement and the nationalcollective contribution to theIndependence social movement in Scotland is something that other national independence movements can learn from and emulate.

Obama yesterday tweeting his support for the No Campaign shows what we have always said is that US Imperialism is against ScottishIndependence and that large sections of the British Leftare as Social Imperialist as they were in 1914..

The movement for National and Social Liberation in the British Isles will not go away - defeats are more instructive than victories and now the struggle for democracy will extend to England, Wales, Kernow and Northern Ireland and the lies that Cameron told to win the referendum will be exposed in the coming months.


PS  45% voted for ScottishIndependence 55% Against Independence


DEMOCRACY AND CLASS STRUGGLE SAYS THE STRUGGLE FOR NATIONAL AND SOCIAL LIBERATIONCONTINUES

The Scottish Referendum - The Case of Norway seceding from Sweden - Statement from Communist League of Norway and Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr in Wales

                                                   Lenin and Luxembourg

.

Serve the People - the Communist League of Norway and the Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr in Wales are pleased that vast sections of the working Class in England and Wales support Scottish Independence, but we are conscious that  more support must be won for our Scottish brothers and sisters.

We would ask those undecided to on the issue to take heed of Comrade Lenin's advice to Swedish working class concerning the question of Norwegian Independence.

Lenin Writes :

What position did the Norwegian and Swedish proletariat take, and indeed had to take, in the conflict over secession?

 After Norway seceded, the class-conscious workers of Norway would naturally have voted for a republic, and if some socialists voted otherwise it only goes to show how much dense, philistine opportunism there sometimes is in the European socialist movement.

There can be no two opinions about that, and we mention the point only because Rosa Luxemburg is trying to obscure the issue by speaking off the mark…

There cannot be the slightest doubt that the Swedish Social-Democrats would have betrayed the cause of socialism and democracy if they had not fought with all their might to combat both the landlord and the “Kokoshkin” ideology and policy, and if they had failed to demand, not only equality of nations in general (to which the Kokoshkins also subscribe), but also the right of nations to self-determination, Norway’s freedom to secede.
The close alliance between the Norwegian and Swedish workers, their complete fraternal class solidarity, gained from the Swedish workers’ recognition of the right of the Norwegians to secede.
 
This convinced the Norwegian workers that the Swedish workers were not infected with Swedish nationalism, and that they placed fraternity with the Norwegian proletarians above the privileges of the Swedish bourgeoisie and aristocracy.
The Swedish workers… will be able to preserve and defend the complete equality and class solidarity of the workers of both nations in the struggle against both the Swedish and the Norwegian bourgeoisie.”

Long Live The Unity of the Welsh, Scottish, Kernow,  Manxx and Irish Working Class in the Struggle for Socialism in the British Isles and may you always place the fraternity of proletarians above the privileges of the British Bourgeoisie.

LA RED DE BLOGS COMUNISTAS (RBC) SE UNE AL COMITÉ INTERNACIONAL DE APOYO A LA GUERRA POPULAR EN LA INDIA


Nota – Con gran alegría hemos conocido la noticia de que la Red de Blogs Comunistas  ha tomado la decisión de unirse al Comité Internacional de Apoyo a la Guerra Popular en la India
La decisión de los camaradas de la RBC demuestra su internacionalismo proletario en los hechos y se trata de un paso muy importante en el avance y desarrollo del movimiento en apoyo y solidaridad internacional con la Revolución de Nueva Democracia que se desarrolla en la India, a través de la Guerra Popular que dirige el Partido Comunista de la India (Maoísta), que el próximo día 21 de septiembre celebra el 10º aniversario de su fundación.
Además, esta noticia  tiene lugar pocos días antes del Encuentro Internacional de Apoyo a la Guerra Popular en la India con ocasión del 10º Aniversario de la Fundación del PC de la India (Maoísta)  que se celebrará los próximos días 27 y 28 de Septiembre en Italia.
Reproducimos a continuación la información que a este respecto ha dado a conocer el blog de los camaradas de la RBC así como su mensaje solicitando formar parte del CIAGPI:
Como ya ha hecho público la Revista  La Via Maoista, Maoist Road RBC ha tomado la decisión de unirse al Comité Internacional de Apoyo a la Guerra Popular en la India. Después de comunicar nuestra intención de hacerlo, el CIAGPI nos ha recibido con un "queridos camaradas, estamos encantados por vuestra decisión internacionalista!"
Nuestro mensaje solicitando pasar a formar parte del CIAGPI fue el siguiente:
Estimados camaradas,
La Red de Blogs Comunistas nació hace apenas un año con la finalidad de defender la necesidad de la unión de las diferentes concepciones ideológicas del Mov. Comunista Internacional orientándola principalmente a la práctica revolucionaria. Por ello, contemplamos como necesaria aprender de los clásicos —véanse Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin y Mao, entre otros—  toda la materia revolucionaria hasta la actualidad, para que , siguiendo al materialismo histórico y dialéctico, poder abrir la puerta a la unidad en base a los principios más genuinos de la historia teórica y revolucionaria del comunismo.
Consideramos que en el momento actual el movimiento naxalita constituye la vanguardia en este sentido, por lo que hemos debatido la posibilidad de integrarnos en el Comité de Apoyo a la Guerra Popular en la India para fomentar, dar a conocer, apoyar y aprender de la lucha revolucionaria que los camaradas del PCI-M están llevando a cabo en pos de acabar con toda explotación e injusticia y, como tal, para derribar a la dictadura capitalista y construir una sociedad socialista.
En este sentido, nos gustaría proponerles nuestra unión al Comité Internacional de Apoyo a la Guerra Popular en la India, solicitando que nos indiquen que pasos tenemos que dar para ello.
¡Saludos Revolucionarios!

Democracy and class - VOTE YES FOR DEMOCRACY BUT DON'T FORGET THE CLASS STRUGGLE FOR SOCIALISM TOMORROW -




Democracy and Class Struggle thinks John Gamey puts it well: The most arresting fact about the referendum is that no newspaper ....
English or Scottish –supportsindependence except the Sunday Herald.
The Scots voting yes have been almost without representation in the media. There is nothing unusual about this. Change in any direction [...]requires defying almost the entire battery of salaried opinion.
What distinguishes the... independence campaign is that it prospers despite this assault.
In the coverage of the referendum we see most of the pathologies of the corporate media. Here, you will find the unfounded generalisations with which less enlightened souls are characterised.
In the Spectator, Simon Heffer maintains: “addicted to welfare ... Scots embraced the something for nothing society”, objecting to the poll tax “because many felt paying taxes ought to be the responsibility of someone else”.
Here is the condescension with which the dominant classes always treat those they regard as inferior: their serfs, the poor, the Irish, Africans, anyone with whom they disagree. “What spoilt, selfish, childlike fools those Scots are.
They don’t have a clue how lucky they are,” sneeredMelanie Reid in the Times. Here is the chronic inability to distinguish between a cause and a person: the referendum is portrayed as a vote about Salmond, monstered beyond recognition (a Telegraph editorial compared him to Mugabe).

VOTE YES FOR DEMOCRACY BUT DON'T FORGET THE CLASS STRUGGLE FOR SOCIALISM TOMORROW -

HONOUR JOHN MACLEAN,HUGH MACDIARMID, MATT LYGATE FIGHT FOR SOCIALISM IN SCOTLAND.

PCIm " Prepare for the 10th Anniversary celebrations of Party Formation"


It would be ten years since the formation of CPI (Maoist) by September 21, 2014. Our CC has decided
to celebrate this occasion on a grand scale all over the country. On this occasion, we should publish special
issues of party, military and other organs. A year long new enrolment campaign should be taken up to expand
the party. Our preparations to fulfill these tasks should begin now.
We should fully utilize this occasion to place before the party, PLGA, mass organizations, RPCs and the
masses the successes and the positive and negative experiences achieved by the new party in various
spheres; the tasks before us to advance the movement and educate them.
Comrades,
Though our countrywide revolutionary movement is facing a critical situation, there are several differences
in the social conditions in various states and in our subjective conditions therein. So our tasks in various
states should be formulated keeping these conditions in view. Our tactics, methods of work and style of
work should also be formulated accordingly. They should be creatively implemented. Keeping in view the
changes occurring in the course of the movement and in the situation in the world and in our country, we
must make the necessary and timely changes in them. We would be able to utilize the favorable objective
conditions well by working with Bolshevik spirit and political initiative. These are very much necessary for
the preservation of subjective forces, to fight back the enemy forces and to build guerilla bases with the aim
of establishing base areas. Lack of Bolshevik spirit and political initiative would lead to deterioration of the
movement and petty bourgeois impetuosity would lead to losses. So in all the states and areas our party
committees should come to a correct assessment about the actual objective and subjective conditions and
formulate the tasks. Appropriate methods of work should be formulated and applied creatively to rally the
party, PLGA, mass organizations and the people actively in a planned manner to fulfill these tasks. Every
task should be implemented from the beginning till the end with determination and initiative. Only thus can
we overcome the critical situation in all states, areas and all over the country and create the conditions for
achieving higher and newer successes.
On the occasion of the 9th anniversary celebrations of our party formation, our CC calls upon the entire
party, PLGA, mass organizations and RPCs to work with determination to complete the above tasks to fulfill
the dreams of our beloved martyrs.
Let us Bolshevize our party so that it can efficiently wield the two basic weapons of People’s Army and
United Front and lead the revolution to victory. Let us expand and strengthen our mass base adhering firmly
to class line and mass line. Let us grasp in depth the two Marxist principles – ‘No revolution without a
revolutionary party’ and ‘People are the makers of history’. Grasping the true meaning of these guiding
principles and implementing them in practice would help us tide over the critical situation we are facing at
present. Let us raise the levels of ideological and political consciousness of the vast masses, build and
consolidate wide ranging movements and fight with determination to bring about a notable turn in our
revolutionary movement. Let us thus advance towards the fulfillment of our share of the tasks of proletarian
internationalism.
Comrades,
Celebrate the 9th anniversary of our party with revolutionary enthusiasm in all our guerilla zones and in
all areas where our party units are present. Utilize this occasion to fill the cadres and the people with the
determination to participate with spirit in the Bolshevization campaign we are taking up as the foremost task.
Let us march forward for fulfilling all our other tasks by learning from the masses. Let us remember the
selfless sacrifices of our great martyrs one more time to imbibe their ideals that would guide us in overcoming
the critical situation we are facing.
With Revolutionary Greetings
Central Committee
Date: September 1, 2013 CPI (Maoist

URGENT ACTION IN DEFENSE OF BRAZILIAN PEOPLE’S LAWYER Dr. ERMOGENES JACINTO DE SOUZA!


10497479_707971635919270_8707378967235579917_o
Dr. Ermogenes Jacinto de Souza is a well-known People’s Advocate and a member of Brazilian Association of People’s Lawyers. He has spent his professional life defending the poor peasants who have struggled for their legitimate right to have lands in the State of Rondônia, in Brazilian Amazon. This area of Brazil has witnessed significant number of murders planned, ordered and executed by Landlord or their mercenaries.
No one forgets the murder of Renato Nathan a teacher and Élcio Machado, Gilson Gonçalves peasants and dozens of others. The Landlords commit these atrocities and criminal acts due to lack of rule of law and accountability in the State of Rondônia. Murder, with total impunity is the fact of life in Rondônia. The State authorities have failed to act. The Judiciary including prosecutors and police have been busy dancing to the Landlord’s tunes. They are institutionally corrupt and server and assist the landlord to continue their land grabbing strategies. Dr. Ermogenes have been threatened and severely restricted in performing his duties as a lawyer.
The landlords’ armed mercenaries have constantly threatened him. The Judiciary, civil servants and member of the police forces in the State of Rondônia have repeatedly denied his legal request such as access to his clients, disclosure of evidence and police reports and legal files and papers. They have literally obstructed him from exercising his duties as a lawyer. He has been prevented from representing more 20 poor peasants who have been detained for brining legal actions against the landlords in the region of Rondônia. Dr. Ermogenes has become extremely vulnerable over the past three months. He has established certain facts regarding the state corruption and the police collusion with the landlords. He found out that specific members of the Military Police Edelvan Moura da Silva (nicknamed Zeca Urubu), Andrade Kenio Fonseca (nicknamed Fonseca) and Fernando Alencar Larios, had been doing private work for the landowner Nadir Jordan dos Reis. It was revealed these officers were involved in the confiscations and land possession against the poor peasants. He was informed that these three officers were recently convicted of torture (Proc. N. 0003343-69.2011.8.22.0021, district of Buritis-RO).
In spite of this they are still active member of the military police. Dr. Ermogenes received a death threat from Edelvan . He was literally warned that he could be eliminated at any time, unless he ceased his activities against Mr. Reis or any of the other landowners in the region of the city of Ariquemes. Dr. Ermogenes has brought actions and made official complaints to the ‘National Agrarian Ombudsman’ chaired by Gercino José da Silva Filho, and at the same time in the Special Secretariat for Human Rights of the Presidency, chaired by Minister Ideli Salvati. The atrocities such as unlawful arrest, torture, against the peasants, repeated shooting incidents and police actions against those peasants who complained to the Police were clearly raised and addressed in the ‘National Commission for Combating Violence in the Field’ during the meeting on July 22, 2014, in Porto Velho, with the presence of the Chief of Agrarian Civil Police, Lucena Vinicius Tavares Bastos, and the Attorney Raphael Bevilacqua.
On another recent occasion, Dr. Ermogenes was unjustly admonished by Judge Alex Balmant, from the 1st Criminal Court in the case involved 14 peasants unjustly convicted for conspiracy. This judge repeated insinuations brought by the police that Dr. Ermogenes allegedly urged the poor peasants to occupy land. This is a clear violation of professional prerogatives according the Statute of Advocacy. Dr. Ermogenes has also noted that the police have started a new campaign of persecution, undermining his professional reputation by spreading wild and baseless allegations against him whenever he represents peasants who took actions against forced evictions of their lands and wrongful arrests of their comrades peasants. Since 2000, when Dr Ermogenes began his professional work in that region, he has been subjected to restriction, obstructions, in his professional work.
He has been receiving constant death threats from the landowners and their gunmen. In his report, he outlined the details of his persecution orchestrated by landowners Nadir Jordan dos Reis, Jorge Chaparini, Dilson Caldato, José de Oliveira Heringer, Cataneo and Antonio Martins dos Santos (nicknamed Galo Velho, business owner of Leme Ventures Ltda, company that was mentioned in the Report of Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry on Public Lands in the Amazon region). Ermogenes stated that Mr. Chaparini already insulted and threatened him with death. At another point, some armed gunmen who work for Mr. Chaparin had tried to kidnap him in Porto Velho Court office. To avoid being kidnapped by the gang, Dr. Ermogenes managed to escape unharmed when he climbed the Court office wall. He reported that he has faced many difficulties in the Porto Velho Court office because the landlord José de Oliveira Heringer, who is also a lawyer, has an office in the same court. In 2008, Mr. Heringer invited Dr. Ermogenes to his office to deal with a case where both were involved.
When Dr Ermogenes reached the office, he noticed that another landlord, Dílson Caldato, (Mr. Heringer’s client) was waiting for him with some of his armed men. Dr. Ermogenes clearly states in his report that he cannot work in free and safe environment in Porto Velho and Buriti Court offices (two cities in the state of Rondônia). He cannot work in his office due to the fact that Heringer’s employers informed the landlord of his presence in the office whenever he attends his office. In addition to this, he further stated that he has been under surveillance by The Federal Police and his phones been tapped without judicial authorization. Dr. Ermogenes has been recently investigated for a false allegation of racketeering by Helio Vieira a landlord and former President of the’ Lawyers Association of Rondônia’. This charge was later filed without any further action.
He further stated that the Chief of Civil Police of Porto Velho, Antonio Garção Sobral, who is also a landowner and Helio Vieira’s neighbour of Helio Vieira, has been involved in fabricating this false accusations. It is clear and evident that Dr. Ermogenes’ life is on stake. An urgent national and international actions are required to stand and defend the right of those who defends the defend less and poor oppressed people. We hereby urge the international organisations to raise their support for Dr. Ermogenes and his fellow lawyers in Brazil who stood for their personal and professional integrity which is the cornerstone of any civilised society. In endorsing this statement, the following organizations, democrats and advocates for the rights of the people affirm their concern about the situation of Ermogenes Jacinto de Souza and require immediate action by local, state and federal authorities to protect his life and the legitimate exercise of his professional activity!

towards International Meeting for 10th anniversary of Foundation of PCIm - 27/28 september Italy -








-Extrats of Speech of the International Committee to Support People's War in India to the International Conference in Hamburg november 2012

...We united our hands with CPIm....The struggle of Maoists in India, comrades, is our struggle, their loss is our loss.
….We redoubled the support to war people in India; we intensified our struggle against imperialism in the world; we worked for proletarian internationalism, we called all the proletarians, revolutionaries, communists in our countries to advance in the revolution.

Maoist Comrades in India wrote us:

Comrades,
We extend our revolutionary greetings to the activities of support that with a great effort you promoted....The current stage of our struggle has not changed, despite the "Operation Green Hunt" and the murderers of our leading cadres, despite the efforts of the enemy, we grow in strength in the guerrilla areas and expand in new areas. In the course of People’s War, in different places we have reached the stage of mobile warfare.
The Operation Green Hunt unleashed by the government has not achieved its goals. Despite the blows we have suffered, the enemy’s morale is low. The plan of the ruling classes to annihilate our party and deprive the people of their guide and proletarian leadership is doomed to fail, because the people and all those who love freedom in this country support and protect the revolutionary movement and its leadership like the apple of their eyes, because they know that this way they safeguard the future of the country and new generations.
The people and people’s movements generate new revolutionary leaders and want that the New Democratic revolution in India advance to the victory and sweep away imperialists and their lackeys, the landlords and the comprador and bureaucratic bourgeoisie with all their representatives.
The impact of the global crisis and imperialist policies on workers and the people of our country is heavy. Corruption, unemployment, prices, poverty, migration due to loss of lands, forests, water, are increasing. The living conditions of the working class, oppressed people, peasantry, the middle class itself, has become unbearable and they are turning more and more to the revolution. Workers' strikes and people’s struggles have expanded in unprecedented way and they are adding to the unrests in all sectors of the people: those of adivasi peasants, which intensify and often result in riots; the economic struggles of the proletarians, that turn more and more into political struggles.
The strength of our party consists in integrating this raging river of the mass movement, with the slogans: land, people’s power and democracy, self-reliance.
We bring the consciousness that no fundamental change can be achieved without the complete destroying of the exploiting classes, in India and around the world.
Your effort is a great expression of proletarian internationalism, we support and see it as a part of the action to denounce the crimes of the Indian regime, the barbaric and genocidal Operation Green Hunt, the effort to gather all the friends of Indian revolution.
Let’s dare to fight and the victory will be of the people!

 Why have we promoted an International Committee in support of the People’s war in India..

In India an impetuous people’s war against the Indian bourgeoisie and the imperialism is developing and spreading more and more in nearly one third of the districts of the country.
It is not simply a guerrilla made by few thousands of fighters coming from the castes and tribal areas of the country. It is a real people’s war, led by the party of the proletariat of India, the Communist Party of India (Maoist), in which are involved – or is supported by – millions of poor peasants, women, “untouchables” fighting to free themselves.
The people’s war began where the root of the riot, the poverty, the tribal and capitalistic exploitation, the caste oppression, the plundering of the natural resources, were deeper and, therefore, the contradictions brought by the Indian capitalism ruled by the imperialism were sharper.
The people’s war won masses of young people, students, democratic and revolutionary intellectuals also in the cities and gained attention and support over the world.
Against the people’s war the Indian State, supported by the imperialists, launched a giant repressive offensive called “Green Hunt”, a real manhunt that hits the poor masses in India as animals to exterminate. The Indian State launched an internal military offensive against the people, waged by hi-tech-armed troops, police units and paramilitary militias, in order to spread terror and genocide in the villages, with raids, crop destroying, massive rapes and killings, selective murders, mass detentions and disappearing. In particular they aimed to behead the leadership of the people, targeting the leading comrades of the CPI(Maoist).
All this with the illusion to drown in blood the struggle of the people for their liberation.
With the silent/consent of the imperialist governments of US, Europe, Russia, and their mass-media, the crimes of the Indian State found the internal opposition of a wide front of prominent intellectuals. In all countries of the world political activists denounced those crimes and mobilized to stop “Green Hunt”....but in our opinion, we need something more than the condemnation of the crimes of the counter-revolution in India.
The masses led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) are writing a historical chapter of the class clash in the world between, on one side, imperialism and the reactionary bourgeoisies and, on the other side, the proletariat and the people of the world.
The development of the people’s war in India is a new proof that the revolution is the main tendency in the world today.
It shows again that the Maoism, the Marxism-Leninism of our era, is the command and guide of the world revolution against the imperialism in crisis.
The vanguard proletarians must understand that the advance of the people’s war in India seriously questions the strength balance, not only in the South-Asian region but on a world scale.
That is why we launched the proposal to form an International committee and organize world-wide campaigns of support to the People’s war in India, particularly in the belly of the imperialist beast, the countries where most of us operate.
...Since the very beginning it was made clear that the Committee was not to be built as a “cartel of groups” but as a centre of actions and propaganda of which proletarians and masses are the main subjects and players.
In each country, the committee was built as an autonomous organization that can collaborate with all those who bring support to the People’s Wars and the liberation struggles of the countries oppressed by imperialism, while maintaining its autonomy in the program and actions.
We always rejected any attempt to misuse our initiatives as a place for a general debate, forgetting that it is the support to the PW in India that unites and mobilizes.

With that, thanks its wide extension reached by the campaigns, the Committee has shown its international dimension and the ability to play its role in promoting information and support for the People’s War in India, in the general context of the more general situation of the class struggle, the situation of imperialism and the struggle of the proletarians and oppressed peoples.
....we stressed even more that we aim to reach the proletariat and the masses. Where we applied this, the campaign got a mass participation, where there was an attitude to seek the agreement between groups first, it was not successful.
... with the slogans: "the repression by the Indian government does not stop but feeds the People's War" "may the wind of the People's war reach the proletarian masses all-around the world"....
the line and method of the International Committee, its united approach to support won against splitting positions ...
The People’s War in India in the international context and the world situation
The imperialist system is going through the most severe crisis since the 1930s. The current attempts to address and overcome the crisis only serve to deepen and extend it.
The crisis has its origin in the laws of running of the capitalist system itself. It is the expression of the limits of production for profit, and the contradiction between productive forces and relations of production, including the general and global nature of the production and private appropriation. In the world scene this means an ever growing gap between the wealth of a handful of imperialist countries and the poverty of three quarters of human beings in the countries oppressed by imperialism, between the wealth in the hands of the bourgeoisie and the relative and absolute impoverishment of proletarians and masses in the imperialist countries , between the overflowing richness of a parasitic and comprador bourgeoisie and the living conditions of misery and hunger of the proletariat and broad masses in the countries oppressed by imperialism.
The world is still faced with two possibilities: the exit from capitalism or a painful temporary recovery from this crisis by strengthening, enhancing the mechanisms of capital and thus prolonging the misery of the masses.
The imperialist bourgeoisie all over the world take advantage of the crisis to restructure imperialism on a global scale and save the interests of their class for their profits.
This leads to unloading the vicious weight of the crisis on the workers and masses. In both the oppressed countries and imperialist countries, unemployment, job insecurity and the cost of living increase, exploitation is ratcheted up to modern forms of slavery, workers' rights are reduced, social achievements won through years of struggles are erased, factories are closed with massive layoffs, peasants are ruined and driven to suicide, cuts in social expenditures and privatization of education and healthcare grow, the logic of commodification and profit is extended even to primary goods, such as water, air, sun, etc..
In the countries oppressed by imperialism, the protests, rebellions and liberation struggles have had a new height and a new dawn. .
In this new wave of struggle and resistance we must support and strengthen the struggle for the liberation of peoples and for new democracy, towards socialism and communism.
This is the context in which a potential new wave of the world proletarian revolution develops and emerges. It has as its reference points and strategic anchor the people's wars led by Maoist parties.
In this context, the people's war led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) successfully withstands unprecedented attacks by the enemy and is able to expand and advance.
.... we formed the International Committee to go over the simple struggle against the war on people waged by the Indian regime and its crimes, and, on the other hand, in each country we built the Committee not as a cartel of groups, but as mass organization aimed to unite and mobilize proletarians and masses around the support to the PW, rejecting any attempt to turn the activities of support into an occasion of self-propaganda ..often these narrow or “leftist” tendencies, in the name of different pretexts, had the same effect to desert the campaigns and the national chapters of the Committee.... those who desert the struggle of the International Committee, no matter what they argue, support in the speeches the PW and boycott in the facts this support. ..
...The International Committee of support to People's War in India, with its history, its trajectory, the difficulties it found, is a work in steps, of networking, of finding the real forces that actually can be united.
It is a revolutionary mass work.
It is a work to be fused with the proletarian struggles and the revolutionaries experiences of the class struggle.
It is the opposite of a dogmatic and sectarian approach.
It is a work that goes beyond the democratic mobilization against the State repression in India, because if we focus only on this aspect, we will end to make imperialism to appear strong and unbeatable, while in India the State and imperialism defend themselves and the People's War successfully withstands and grows.... the International Committee, with its formation, its life, its campaigns, has passed through the “strategic defensive”. After the International Conference in Hamburg, it enters a stage of “strategic equilibrium”, in which it cannot be cancelled but yet cannot win and pass to the offensive.
We call all the forces that have contributed to this work to advance together, to continue this work in every country, to use all the forms of struggle, from the propaganda, to spread information and unite masses, to the actions to hit the symbols of the Indian Regime and imperialism.

Let’s support the People’s War in India, until the victory!
