extractos da un documento del PCI maoista 

( el governo Modi) ....es una amenaza al pueblo de la India y una amenaza existencial a la guerra revolucionaria agraria armada,  a las minorías nacionales y dalits y a otras comunidades oprimidas. El surgimiento del fascismo para superar sus crisis y hacer frente al crecimiento de los movimientos revolucionarios, de liberación nacional y democráticos en el contexto de la profundización de la crisis imperialista internacional es un fenómeno creciente en la actualidad. Para implementar de forma efectiva las políticas neoliberales, los imperialistas y sus aliados buscan establecer formas neofascistas de dominación. Esto se puede ver también en la India.
Esto es un desafío ante las fuerzas revolucionarias y democráticas y las masas de nuestro país. Esa es la razón por la cual las masas explotadas de la India, las nacionalidades oprimidas, los patriotas, las organizaciones e individuos, estudiantes y jóvenes, intelectuales y otras fuerzas progresistas que defienden al pueblo, deben comprender la seria amenaza planteada por el crecimiento de los fascistas brahamánicos hindúes. Construyendo movimientos de masas amplios y poderosos a través de la unidad de todos los revolucionarios y organizaciones, fuerzas y personas democráticas y las amplias masas contra todas las clases dominantes, en particular contra el fascismo azafrán, es una importante tarea ante nosotros. De manera simultánea, se deben desarrollar las luchas para resolver los problemas básicos y diarios a los que se enfrentan las masas. El pueblo no puede conquistar ningún derecho sin luchas. Sólo uniendo a todas las fuerzas que luchan y defendiendo, intensificando y extendiendo la guerra popular prolongada y la realización de la revolución de nueva democracia con la revolución agraria armada como su eje, se pueden resolver los problemas básicos del pueblo y erradicar todas las raíces reaccionarias, fascistas y contrarrevolucionarias.

carta aperta a los solidarios con la India - CIAPI/ ICSPWI info csgpindia@gmail.com


Queridos camaradas y amigos:
Como probablemente sabéis, estamos avancando en la iniciativa de organizar Spring Thunder Tour Internacional se lucha contra Green Hunt, la repression y los massacres y de supporte a la guerra popular en India
Se ha realizado un llamamiento a nivel internacional y el trabajo de reuniones y consultas entre todas las fuerzas de solidaridad internacional para llevar a cabo esta empresa - se estan desarrollando iniciativas in Italia y otras se preparan en Francia, Tunisia, Galicia, Belgio Reino Unido.
El objetivo de dicha iniciativa es desafiar al régimen indio, por medio de la movilización de la masas, de los organismos solidario y de la opinión pública internacional para detener los ataques contra el conjunto del movimiento popular en la India.y espander el supporte a los massas y camaradas indios.
Como dicen las camaradas de la India - PCI Maoista : “La campaña para poner fin a la Operación Cacería Verde y el movimiento de solidaridad en apoyo de la guerra popular en la India se complementan entre sí… la necesidad del momento es luchar por movilizar, lo más ampliamente posible, a las fuerzas antiimperialistas, democráticas y revolucionarias para fortalecer la campaña para poner fin a la Operación Cacería Verde, con el objetivo de construir un frente antiimperialista mundial, que ya está en proceso”.
Por otro lado,  subida al poder del fascismo comunalista hindù de Narendra Modi, y el enorme salto en la caza de brujas contra cualquier voz de discrepancia en la India, reflejada en el secuestro del Profesor G.N. Saibaba, han hecho que la situación más compleja y difícil.
Esperamos que estos hechos conducirán a unir las fuerzas para un esfuerzo conjunto.

- 24 juin meeting international Paris - sur le Mai/juin 68


La bourgeoisie a depuis longtemps dressé son bilan de "Mai 68". Pour les plus libéraux, c'était la rébellion de la jeunesse idéaliste contre la « société des vieux », une colère puérile dont des "vétéran" bien rangés se souviennent et dressent un bilan définitif. Pour les plus ouvertement réactionnaires c'était l'attentat d'une jeunesse ingrate contre la bonne société gaulliste qui a mis  à bas toutes les vieilles valeurs. Dans les deux cas en somme, l'analyse bourgeoise réduit 68 à sa dimension "jeune" et étudiante, sa durée au mois de Mai et sa portée politique à des affrontements romantiques portés par quelques revendications "sociétales" telles que la libération sexuelle.
Pour les ouvriers,les etudiantes e la jeunesse revolutionaire, les masses populaires en revanche, Mai-Juin 68 a été infiniment plus que cela. Il est l'explosion d'un grand mouvement dans l'universitè qui deborde dans les routes et reponds à la police et à la repression qui arrives à les usines et contribue à la plus longue et la plus grande grève générale que la France ait connue. Les événements de Mai et Juin 1968 amorcent un nouveau processus révolutionnaire qui n'avait pas pour but quelques réformes sociales mais la transformation du système tout entier: une rupture avec le révisionnisme, représenté par le vieux Parti "communiste" Français. Cette rupture a prouvé qu'il était possible de remettre en cause le capitalisme de manière conséquente.
Dans ce grand mouvwment uovriers-etudiantes, emergent les maoistes et la plus dynamique des organisations entre eux : La Gauche prolétarienne.
La Gauche Prolétarienne a tenté de faire le lien entre le mouvement de la jeunesse étudiante et les masses ouvrières en établissant certains de ses militants dans les plus grandes usines. Elle a tenté à travers cette pratique de radicaliser les luttes et d’établir une ligne de démarcation avec les révisionnistes. Avec la création de la NRP (Nouvelle Résistance Populaire) elle avait jeté les bases des forces combattantes nécessaires à toute révolution. De plus, la GP avait commencé à former un front avec les organisations de masse qu’elle avait lancé telles que l’Union des Comités de Lutte d’Atelier, le Mouvement des Travailleurs Arabes ou le Secours Rouge. La GP a développé un travail de masse considérable dont nous devons nous inspirer. Néanmoins en refusant d’édifier le parti, elle n'a pas su appliquer les principes du léninisme de façon conséquente, et cela l’a conduit dans une impasse menant à son autodissolution.

Loin d'être un phénomène purement  "français" les  événements de 68 trouvent leur origine en Asie, dans la lutte contre la guerre impérialiste au Vietnam, et sont inspirés par la Grande Révolution Culturelle et Prolétarienne lancée alors en Chine. Loin aussi d'être cantonnés au seul mois de Mai ils ouvriront une longue période de Lutte de classe dans l'ensemble des Pays du "Nord" impérialiste, en Italie, en Allemagne ou encore au Japon. Même dans les pays du « Bloc de l’Est » révisionnistes des groupes d’ouvriers et d’étudiants seront inspirés par cette rébellion. Si ce grand mouvement finit par être liquidé, il est important d'être conscient de ce qu'il a réellement été et de ce qu'il continue de représenter aujourd'hui pour le mouvement révolutionnaire.



Berlin - FAŞİZME KARŞI OMUZ OMUZA! - ATİF, Almanya YDG ve Yeni Kadın’dan Dayanışma Çağrısı:


Berlin polisi 13 Haziran Çarşamba günü Berlin Demokratik Kürt Toplum Merkezi ve Civaka Azad’ın bürosuna sabah saat 5.30’da kapıları kırarak girmiş ve kurumları talan ederek arama yapmıştır.Aynı saatlerde kurum yöneticilerinin de evleri basılarak aramaya maruz bırakılmıştır. Alman devletinin Kürt kurumlarına yönelik bu türden saldırıları ilk değildir. Almanya’nın bir çok şehrinde Kürt kurumları basılmış, metaryallerine el konulmuş, çalışmaları engellenmek istenmiştir. Almanya çapında Kürt halkının politik ve kültürel sesi olmaya çalışan bir çok kurumun varlığından Alman devleti büyük rahatsızlık duymuktadır.
Demokratik örgütlenmelerini sürdüren ve Türk devletinin Kürt halkına yönelik vahşi saldırı ve katliamlarına karşı kamuoyu çalışması yürüten, Kürt halkının direnişinin Almanya’daki sesi olmaya çalışan Kürt kültürel ve politik kurumları, özellikle son yıllarda Alman devletinin faşist Türk devleti ile geliştirdiği kirli politik, ekonomik ve askeri ilişkiler parelelinde yoğun baskılarla karşı karşıya kalmaktadır. Berlin polisinin gerçekleştirdiği bu son saldırı, Erdoğan hükümetine açık bir seçim desteğidir. Alman devleti göçmen ve yerli ilerici, devrimci politik yapılanmalara karşı tırmandırdığı saldırılara ve kriminalize etme faaliyetlerine son vermelidir.
Almanya Türkiyeli İşçiler Federasyonu, Almanya YDG ve Almanya Yeni Kadın olarak, Alman devletinin Kürt kurumlarına yönelik saldırılarını kınıyor, tüm ilerici devrimci güçleri bu saldırılara karşı Kürt halkının kültürel ve politik kurumları ile dayanışmaya çağırıyoruz!

India/Cachemira: Asesinan a conocido periodista que denunciaba los crimenes de Estado



Shujaat-BukhariCorreovermello-noticias
New Delhi, 15.06.18

El mismo día que la ONU presentaba un informe condenatorio al Estado indio por crímenes y torturas contra la población y los presos políticos, fue asesinado por sicarios el conocido periodista Shujaat Bukhari, en la ciudad de Srinagar.
Fuentes de la prensa india denuncian que las medidas policiales para capturar a los asesinos fueron inexistentes.
Shujaat era una voz valiente, editor del “Kashmir Raising”, activista de derechos humanos, muri, junto a dos de sus escoltas, la noche del pasado día 14, cuando fueron atacados por varios criminales. Los avisos a sus periódicos fueron detenidos por el gobierno indio hace mucho tiempo. Se pronunció en contra de las violaciones de los derechos humanos y había defendido Cachemira como un problema político en la India y en todo el mundo. Es bastante evidente a que intereses servirá su asesinato.
La Unión Popular para las Libertades Civiles ha emitido un duro comunicado que condena su asesinato, que solo puede beneficiar afirma a los enemigos de una solución política y no militarista.

Brasil - Aumento dos assassinatos de pobres e pretos pela PM é política de Estado

and

Cresce o número de mortos pela Polícia Militar em todo o país. É o que indica um levantamento inédito sobre o número de assassinatos cometidos por policiais da ativa e da reserva. Os dados, publicados recentemente como parte do projeto “Monitor da Violência” (desenvolvido pelo Núcleo de Estudos da Violência da USP junto ao Fórum Brasileiro de Segurança Pública), revelam que o Brasil teve, no ano passado, 5.012 pessoas assassinadas por policiais, 790 a mais do que no ano de 2016, representando um aumento de 19%.

Velho Estado marca presença ostensiva em favelas do Rio de Janeiro como parte da guerra civil
Cerca de 22 mil pessoas foram mortas em ações policiais entre 2009 e 2016, de acordo com o 11° Anuário Brasileiro de Segurança Pública do Fórum Brasileiro de Segurança Pública (FBSP). Em mais de 90% dos casos as vítimas são pobres e pretos e as cenas dos crimes são as favelas, aglomerados, comunidades pobres e periféricas.
Para quem vive nesses locais esta é uma realidade essencialmente inalterada há décadas. Qualquer pessoa pobre, principalmente preta, conhece bem a terrível sensação de “insegurança” ao se encontrar com os ditos agentes da “segurança pública” na calada da noite. Estes dados, por sua vez, não podem ser interpretados fora do contexto do incremento da guerra civil reacionária movida pelo velho Estado contra o povo na cidade e no campo, e dos preparativos do golpe de Estado contrarrevolucionário preventivo a serviço do imperialismo, principalmente ianque, maquinado pelos generais das Forças Armadas.
Autos de resistência
No ano passado, para cada PM morto em serviço, outras 36 pessoas morreram em supostos confrontos com a polícia no Rio de Janeiro. Segundo dados registrados pelo próprio governo estadual, por meio do Instituto de Segurança Pública (ISP), os assassinatos pela PM representam 18% de todos os casos de “letalidade violenta” no estado no ano passado (homicídios, mortos pela polícia, roubos seguidos de morte e lesão corporal seguida de morte). Comprova-se que a polícia é um grande motor da violência.
Já no estado de São Paulo, a proporção foi de 56 mortes para cada policial assassinado nos primeiros nove meses do ano de 2017. As execuções cometidas por policiais contra o povo pobre e preto são encobertas por um dispositivo criado durante o regime militar-fascista, no ano de 1969, denominado “autos de resistência”, utilizado à época para justificar o assassinato de opositores que a polícia dizia ter matado numa situação de resistência armada à prisão.
Também é importante destacar que, para além de sua utilização cotidiana como parte da política estatal de extermínio da juventude pobre e preta, este dispositivo segue sendo utilizado para criminalizar a luta popular, particularmente a luta pela terra e por território de camponeses, quilombolas e indígenas. Isto é demonstrado pelo caso recente mais significativo, a Chacina de Pau D`Arco no Pará, quando dez camponeses pobres foram torturados e sumariamente assassinados por policiais militares e civis vinculados à Delegacia de Conflitos Agrários de Marabá (Deca), sob a justificativa de que houve “resistência armada”. Esta versão mentirosa foi posteriormente desmentida pelas investigações motivadas pela forte pressão da opinião pública, nacional e internacional, em repúdio ao hediondo crime de Estado. 
Impunidade fardada
Segundo a OAB/RJ, só 3,7% dos “autos de resistência” no estado viram processos criminais. Isto deixa evidente não apenas o já conhecido corporativismo militar, mas a cumplicidade do Ministério Público e do Judiciário para com estes crimes hediondos cometidos por agentes públicos pagos com os impostos da própria população vitimada por sucessivos assassinatos.

19 DE JUNIO 1986 - DIA DE LA HEROICIDAD

“PODRAN VOLARNOS EN MIL PEDAZOS,
PERO NO PODRÁN QUEBRAR NUESTRA MORAL COMUNISTA”*
  
La carta llegó a nosotros, y la publicamosen tanto es un testimonio del más grave genocidio ocurrido en el país. Casi lúcida para un agonizante. Dramática y llena de esperanza.
   La misiva fue escrita cuando el Pabellón Azul, que los presos políticos, llamaban Luminosa Trinchera de Combate, había sido totalmente destruida por los bombardeos de morteros, bazucas y cañonazos de los marinos. El agonizante senderista, finalmente dejó de existir unto a más de 150 presos asesinados enesta isla penal.
     En todo momento –cuenta el testigo- los militares hicieron fuego desde lejos del pabellón. “No pudieron acercarse por el temor a perder más hombres”, dijo.
   En la tarde se reiniciaría la sangrienta ofensiva.
    “Cuando eran aproximadamente las dos de la tarde, un mortero explosionó atrás del muro, donde me encontraba. Allí perdí el conocimiento y no supe más hasta cuando desperté”.
   “Habría pasado una hora cuando recobré el conocimiento y vi el pabellón invadido por marinos. Comenzaron a identificar a los sobrevivientes, separando a los delegados de los otros compañeros. Separaron a cinco o seis y se los llevaron a la isla San Lorenzo, después no se supo más de ellos hasta hoy”.
    “Pude divisar en mi semi inconsciencia a un compañero que prácticamente se despedía de la vida, dando vivas al presidente Gonzalo y entonando cánticos. Apenas los marinos se percataron de esto, seacercaron a él y lo remataron.
EL FUSILAMIENTO
      “Creyendo que los militares iban a respetar las normas sobre prisioneros de guerra, quince compañeros decidieron abandonar su escondite en un sótano del mismo pabellón. Salieron con los brazos en alto para rendirse. Los marinos les ordenaron que se alineen con las manos en la pared del baño y procedieron a fusilarlos cobardemente”, señaló.
   En esos momentos, el testigo perdió el conocimiento, debido a la sangre que había perdido, y sólo lo recobró cuando se encontraba en la cama que hoy ocupa.
   “Con profundo cariño por amor a la verdad y la libertad. No tengo nada en mis manos que quede de la LTC, salvo este cenicero, trabajo de los prisioneros de guerra que hoy yacen sus cuerpos asesinados cobardemente”, empieza la carta.
    Luego continúa diciendo que “los reaccionarios generan disturbios y fracasan hasta su tuina final. Nada ni nadiepodrá derrotarnos , el rio aumenta su cauce natural, el desborde es una ley”.
   El combatiente afirma también que “el pueblo tiene su ley, luchar, fracasar. Volver a luchar podemos fracasar de nuevo.Volveremos a luchar hasta obtener la victoria que nos llama”.
   “Las sangres derramadas –prosigue- son estandartes que convocan a todo el pueblo a lograr lo que tanto hemos ansiado:el PODER, estamos condenados a triunfar, es una hermosa condena”.
  Agrega además que “nos podrán triturar,volamos en mil pedazos, pero, no podrán quebrar nuestra moral COMUNISTA,estamos dispuestos a  morir, la moral dela clase está en juego, hay que defenderla y lo haremos con sangre, dolor y lágrimas”.
   “¡Ah! Sólo la guerra conmoverá profundamentea los hombres hasta el último pliegue de su alma”.
   “Como combatiente de esta heroica LTC he sabido resistir tenazmente a los bombardeos de las FF.AA., reaccionarias genocidas deshonra de los héroes nacionales, valientes para matar y cobardes para morir. Otro día hablaremos de otros asuntos. Reafirmo mi compromiso con nuestra revolución mundial. Seguiré sus ejemplos de luchar por nuestro pueblo. Servir al pueblo de todo corazón sin ningún móvil personal, con total desinterés personal”, finaliza la carta.

China: Long live the national truck drivers’ strike!This is a declaration by the “Struggle Association”, an underground Marxist-Leninist-Maoist organization in China.

This is a declaration by the “Struggle Association”, an underground Marxist-Leninist-Maoist organization in China.

The truck drivers’ strike took place on June 8, two days prior to the planned date. As of now, this spontaneous strike wave has rapidly spread to Jiangxi, Shandong, Sichuan, Chongqing, Shanghai, Anhui, Hubei, Zhejiang, and other provinces, elevating the strike to a national level. Truck drivers from all over the country have blocked major road with protest banners attached to their vehicles, demanding higher transport prices, lower fuel prices, improvement in living and working conditions, and abolish the panorama of collusive monopoly, arbitrary fines, and constantly changing policies. According to the drivers on strike, the strike would last for at least ten days, and they will not give up until the regime concedes to their demands.

Modi Regime Can’t Secure its Future by Imprisoning Civil Rights Activists : Tanmoy Ibrahim


The Operation Green Hunt reached the urban landscape long ago, and in tandem with the brutal war waged against the poor tribal people of the mineral-rich zones of India, the oppressive state machinery has launched a concerted attack on those voices that echo support for the cause of the marginalised and oppressed people, who are subject to the grotesque sadist state’s pleasure-seeking exercise every day and night. At the early morning of 6 June 2018, when the Maharashtra Police arrested Advocate Surendra Gadling, General Secretary of Indian Association of People’s Lawyers and the lawyer of arrested Prof Dr GN Saibaba, Prof Shoma Sen, Head of Department of English, Nagpur University, Sudhir Dhawale, the editor of Vidrohi from Mumbai, Rona Wilson, the Public Relations Secretary Committee for the Release of Political Prisoners and Mahesh Raut, an anti-displacement activist from Bharat Jan Andolan and a former Fellow at Prime Minister’s Rural Development (PMRD) for Gadchiroli District, it became clear that a terrified Indian state under the utmost unapologetic Hindutva fascist regime of Narendra Modi is leaving no stones unturned to achieve its target of neutralising and annihilating people’s democratic resistance against its policies that are targeted against the tribals, the Dalits and the Muslims, lest these forces dig a grave for the fascist mobocracy that rules India.
What made the Maharashtra Police to arrest these activists from Delhi and Maharashtra? The police of the BJP-ruled state are driven by a vengeance against the left-democratic forces who are speaking up against state terror in Gadchiroli, the caste oppression laden on the Dalits of the state by the upper-caste feudal landlords and rich farmers and the corporate houses that are trying to annex land of the farmers and the marginal communities to build up huge real estate projects. The activists were arrested this time because the police have accused them of playing a crucial role in the outbreak of violent clashes between the Dalit activists and upper-caste Hindutva thugs in Bhima Koregaon this January. One Dalit was killed in the violence, which resulted in a state-wide anti-BJP and anti-Hindutva agitation of the Dalit community. The RSS strongmen, who were accused by the Dalits of inciting violence and leading the murderous Brahmanical thugs, remain scot-free till date, while those activists who have steadfastly fought against feudal, casteist and corporate attacks on the poor, are now thrown behind the bars as the police want them to confess that they are “Maoist” conspirers.
The corporate-controlled Indian mainstream media is milling the same press release of the police as gospel truth by projecting the arrested men and woman as “urban Maoists” who are spreading violence. The Maoists happen to lead one of the longest-running armed struggles against the Indian state machinery with an aim to overthrow it and to establish a people’s democratic state of the poor and marginalised people in its place. Thousands of communist rebels, known as the Naxalites or Maoists, have died in India fighting against an oppressive state machine. The continuous oppression laden on the poor and the marginalised by the Indian state and its bankrupt character has inspired thousands of young men and women to join the militant movement since last five decades. The Indian state, irrespective of which of the coalition that serves the ruling classes is in power, labels the activists who question its ways as Maoist and then jails them. Similarly, the Indian state jails Muslims by framing terrorist charges against them, as the Islamic terrorism is a fancy tale that the international monopoly and finance capital has invented to divert the people’s attention from real burning issues. Though the courts will let genociders like Maya Kodnani,

No podemos marchar bajo consignas y banderas contrarias a la clase y el pueblo como la que pretende solucionar la actual crisis política del régimen fascita, genocida y vendepatria encabezado por el peón del imperialismo yanqui Vizcarra,: movilizándose bajo la consigna: ¡Que se vayan todos!, detrás de la cual se ofrece como “solución”  para el recambio de autoridades el "golpe" o el "autogolpe" para cerrar el Congreso y convocar a nuevas elecciones parlamentarias o generales.

CONVERSAS COM A CAMARADA LAURA NAS BASES DAS MONTANHAS VIZCATÁN

INTRODUÇÃO
Hoje, publicamos as CONVERSAS COM A CAMARADA LAURA NAS BASES DAS MONTANHAS VIZCATÁN, no VRAEM (Vale dos Rios Apurímac, Ene e Mantaro), realizada por volta de 2012, o essencial da entrevista é que nela, como tem que ser, com guerra popular se assume a defesa do Presidente Gonzalo, a chefatura do Partido e da revolução, do pensamento gonzalo, o I Congresso e da BUP (Base de Unidade Partidária) e todo o caminho percorrido até agora e se toma firme posição contra a LOD (Linha Oportunista de Direita) revisionista e capitulacionista encabeçada pela ratazana Miriam e especialmente contra a linha oportunista de direita, disfarçada de esquerda, revisionista e capitulacionista da ratazana José e sua camada que usurparam o CRP (Comitê Regional Principal). Consideramos que é um magistral documento marxista-leninista-maoista, pensamento gonzalo. Nele com a documentação partidária em mãos a camarada Laura, desde as mesmas montanhas de Vizcatán, com profundo sentimento e ódio de classe, com firme convicção e posição comunista e com a ideologia do marxismo-leninismo-maoismo, pensamento gonzalo assume a defesa de nossa chefatura, o Presidente Gonzalo, e de seu todopoderoso pensamento, e deslinda, aplasta e varre contra todas as patranhas da CIA - reação peruana e seus serviçais do novo revisionismo contra o Presidente Gonzalo, o PCP e a guerra popular.

for debate - Italy's new fascist government opens fire on immigrants


From A World to Win News Service:
The new Italian government's opening salvo was to order that the country's ports be closed to an NGO ship carrying 629 people rescued from the Mediterranean, about 100 of them children. This demonstrated just what the slogan "Italians first" really means.

This is the first, but most certainly not the last, result of the parliamentary elections last March and the following three months of negotiations. What many people thought (or hoped) could never happen finally did happen: the Five Star Movement, a young, self-styled “forward-looking” party that calls for the replacement of all political parties by "direct democracy" joined with the old-line neo-fascist thugs of the League on a joint programme and formed a coalition government. What makes this alliance shameful is not that Five Star, largely based in poorer southern Italy, has partnered with what was formerly named the Northern League, a party founded on the idea that the country's southerners are less than Italian. It's that both forces have united on the potentially genocidal stand that certain non-Italians are less than human.

The coalition's first attempt to form a government failed when, in an unheard-of move, the country's normally figurehead president, not chosen by direct vote, vetoed a cabinet that included an anti-European Union figure in a key ministry. The second attempt succeeded when both parties reiterated their commitment to Italy's membership in the EU and the euro currency zone. League head Matteo Salvini and Five Star leader Luigi Di Maio became vice ministers under a supposedly neutral prime minister. But although Five Star came in far ahead of the League in the elections, the League and its policies have come to the fore.

Salvini was made Interior Minister, in charge of state repression, and has been by far the government's loudest voice. In his ferociously anti-immigrant inaugural speeches he expanded the target to include Roma ("Gypsies") and the practice of Islam. The new Family Minister, a Catholic fundamentalist, declared her die-hard opposition to divorce and abortion, and made her immediate goal the end of same-sex marriage. This is necessary, she said, to prevent the "erasure" of "our people". The fact that this would appal Five Star's more secular supporters didn't seem to matter. Five Star's Di Maio got to be Minister of Labour and Economic Development. The League agreed to put off its proposed "flat" tax meant to favour its more well-off social base, while Five Star did the same with its signature policies, a guaranteed income for all Italian citizens and early retirement, measures said to ease the pain of unemployment. The two forces ended up uniting around one priority: to remove, as soon as possible, half a million people – virtually everyone remaining in Italy who crossed the Mediterranean in recent years.

The result was a government programme and cabinet that powerful ruling class forces behind the scenes and Italy's traditional parties could and did accept. So did many such forces abroad, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF), whose main concern during the negotiations was the threat to the stability of the vampire international finance system. This threat was happily avoided when the two former fringe parties backed off earlier pronouncements about balanced budgets and the euro.

But the threat to Europe's stability has not been averted. While the same class forces as ever are mainly in charge, the new Italian government does represent a dramatic change. In Italy, as in country after country around Europe, the collapse of confidence in the widely hated "system" parties, the "centre-right" and "centre-left" that alternated in government since World War 2, has been appropriated by a "populism" where the "will of the people" – or at least carefully selected expressions of the most backward and reactionary sentiments among sections of the people – is being used to justify attacks on established democratic rights. This is accompanied by blatant national chauvinism untinged by "humanist" pretensions, and by stepped-up, undisguised racist violence and misogyny.

This "populism" with its "my people first" can only mean "my country first" – bringing together the ruling exploiters and the exploited and oppressed alike. The "people" are no longer defined as all inhabitants of a territory, the hallmark of modern nation states that emerged in revolutions against feudalism, but according to a mystical vision of "a people" united by their "blood" (excluding even immigrants' children). This was exemplified in Nazi ideology as "true Germans" versus "non-Germans" such as Jews, Roma, gender non-conforming people, the disabled and so on, all to be exterminated. Now once again we see politics based on appeals to the resentments of a mythically defined "volk" (the Nazi's favourite word, not for people in general but a particular ethnicity, to be "defended" in opposition to everyone else), who have supposedly been denied their "rightful" place at the top of the global imperialist food chain. Of course today's leading example is the white supremacist slogan and programme "Make America Great Again". Not every populist movement has gone all the way down that road, but that's where that road leads.

The Five Star Movement has added its own defining idea to this mix: to move politics from the streets to the Internet, distilling the will of the people through frequent Web-based referendums.. The underlying claim is that what is just and right is what's expressed by the majority of people at any given place or time. The bankruptcy of this philosophy was revealed in the way Five Stars settled the debate around immigration in its own ranks on the eve of forming the new coalition government. About 94 percent of the people who chose to vote on its Web site (it has no formal members) expressed the opinion that society, the media and even the Movement's own authorities had taught them. In this way they gave their blessings to fascist homicidal maniacs about to go on a rampage.

The American fascist ideologist Steve Bannon, recently interviewed in his new stomping ground in Rome by CNN, said that Italy's new government demonstrates the possibility and necessity for alliances between Trump-like forces and part of what he called the "left" in many countries. Speaking of the U.S., he called for a union between "Trumpists" and some supporters of the "populist" presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on the basis of what he called "economic nationalism", a term used to describe aspects of the Five Star Movement in Italy. It could also apply to similar nationalist "leftist" and "socialist" forces in other countries, like the movement led by Jean-Luc Melenchon in France and even Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the UK.

What comes first, "my people", "my country" – or the interests of the world's people, of humanity? What none of Italy’s major parties, fascist or mainstream, is willing to acknowledge is the truth behind what has been driving millions of migrants out of their own homes in the first place: that the desperate conditions in their homelands is bound up with the generations-old division between the oppressor countries in the West and the oppressed countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Or as one slogan popular in pro-refugee protests puts it, “They’re over here because we’re over there”.

What's happening in Italy shows the truth and power of this dividing line and the necessity to wage political and ideological struggle with people's backwardness on this question, while vigorously and urgently stepping up opposition to the fascist movements and regimes and their conscious or unwilling collaborators.

Kaypakkaya a érigé une position nette dans le camp du prolétariat international concernant la lutte des classes du socialisme, l’attitude contre l’impérialisme social, l’insistance dans la guerre populaire, l’attachement constant au président Mao dans la lutte des classes. Dans ce contexte, il se réfère à l’émergence audacieuse du mouvement naxaliste en Inde. Par une ligne claire, il s’est démarqué de la ligne aventurière du Foco à l’échelle mondiale.

India info ....los maoístas están reforzando y ampliando su influencia en zonas urbanas

orreovermello-noticias
New Delhi, 09.06.18
Según un reporte de la agencia TNN, que cita fuentes de los cuerpos represivos del régimen fascista de Modi, los maoístas están reforzando y ampliando su influencia en zonas urbanas y en particular en la enseñanza.
“Hay evidencias que sugieren que los maoístas están tratando de desviar a los estudiantes a actividades disruptivas” para crear nuevos cuadros para el clandestino Partido Comunista de la India (maoísta) afirman medios policiales. En particular acusan al activista de Gadchiroli, recientemente arrestado,  Mahesh Raut de desplazarse a Nagpur para estudiar en la universidad y así poder desarrollar tareas de captación entre los estudiantes de la misma. también afirman que Raut se desplazo a Brasil, el año pasado, para realizar tareas de agitación contra el gobierno indio.
La policía también afirma que los maoístas ahora están tratando de formar diferentes organizaciones estudiantiles bajo el manto de la protección de los derechos humanos y también para luchar por dar forma a una sociedad libre de explotación. “Los miembros de dichos grupos de estudiantes son gradualmente introducidos a la ideología maoísta a través de diferentes actividades.”

Aunque la noticia se enmarca en la campaña de patrañas organizada por el régimen fascista azafrán, indica su preocupación por la extensión del maoísmo en los diversos estamentos educativos de las grandes ciudades.

A most commendable meeting took place of AFDR in Ludhiana comprising around 150 persons. Speakers touched upon the massacre in Gadricholi, the attack in Tuticon and the arrests of 6 democrats.

.Gautam Navlkakha highlighted how fascist the judicial system was becoming and traced that the root of consolidation of fascsim lay in the judiciary itself. He explained why the state stooped down to such level of fascist assaults on the people and summarized the historical grounding of it.Professor Jagmohan Singh spoke about the nature of state corporate capitalism and how only by treading the path of Shaheed Bhgat Singh copuld the Indian masses emancipate itself from it's clutches.He summarized the significance of Bhagat Singh's teachings in light of the fascsim pervading in India today.

Proletarian Feminism and Anuradha Ghandy





Proletarian feminism: more than just proletarian and feminist together

Proletarian feminism is the theoretical and practical development of the struggle against patriarchy from the perspective of the proletariat and revolutionary communist politics.

Anuradha Ghandy

It was first put forth by Indian revolutionary and communist Anuradha Ghandy. Like other trends within feminism, proletarian feminism sees the existence of patriarchy and the need for its overthrow – the difference lies in how proletarian feminism views patriarchy theoretically, and how it mobilizes in practice for its overthrow. Ghandy’s seminal article “Philosophical trends in the Feminist movement“, is perhaps the first coherent proletarian feminist text to lay out the differences with other feminisms. 

From this article’s criticism of the weaknesses of other feminist trends we can draw what are the dialectical strengths of a proletarian feminism, or at least the areas it has to tackle and the direction that Ghandy argues it should take. This is our summation of her argument for a proletarian feminism:

1. Adherence to a Marxist, historical materialist, and dialectical materialist framework of analysis. Proletarian feminism makes a criticism, however, of Socialist and Marxist feminism as philosophical trends that make the same claim. The main difference is on how to approach the question of emancipatory practice and the rejection of a commonality between women regardless of class, nationality, race, etc, while at the same time upholding the centrality of the class struggle for the destruction of patriarchy.

 Patriarchal oppression is part of class oppression, not a separate or complementary oppression, and has its root in class society as a historical materialist fact, neither born with capitalism as a mode of production, nor merely a residual or vestigial feudal remain, but rather an intrinsic part of any class society regardless of mode of production. As such, only communism can destroy patriarchy once and for all. Any attempts to separate patriarchy from class society as whole ultimately lead to strategic dead-ends for feminism.

2. Rejection of biological determinism in defining women, sex/gender roles, and of the implications of the sex/gender system for all people. This includes a rejection of sex/gender differences existing as a biological fact in any degree of independence from social, economic, and political relations. It doesn’t deny biological difference among people – these are obvious – it just rejects the claim that sex/gender ordering is principally related to biological differences, or the view that sex and gender stem from some biological essence. 

Not all women can or do get pregnant, for example, and yet they remain women. Not all women are assigned womanhood at birth, yet they are still women. This is not to say the gender binary is beyond criticism, just that the criticism of this binary based on biology is wrong. There is no female and male brain, but there is indeed a female and male social existence into which people fall – either forced into it, or because of identity.

3. A social and economic understanding of the role of the family as an economic unit that doesn’t seek to abolish the family as some sort of heterosexual invention, but to transform its internal relations, as well as its wider role in society. Emphasis is on the centrality of political power and society-wide transformation of economic relations as a way to transform the family, rather than privatizing family relations as a matter of individual will. By implication, it doesn’t see the family as the primary trench of combat against patriarchy. 

The primary trench of combat is society at large. This doesn’t mean the family is immune – families are part of society at large and thus are part of the wider societal combat against patriarchy. It does mean the special role given by many feminist trends to the family beyond it being a unit of production and reproduction is incorrect. One can abolish the family and as long as class society exists, so will patriarchy, it will just find some other way to organize the production and reproduction of gender oppression and patriarchal domination. The focus on the family of many trends, in particular when this focus ignores the rest of society, is challenged by proletarian social struggle.

4. Emphasis on the non-antagonistic aspects of the contradiction between proletarian men and proletarian women, rather than posing the contradiction as mainly antagonistic. Emphasis is placed on struggling against systemic oppression along with microaggressions and oppressions generated at the level of individual interactions, rather than only on the individual oppressions. Instead of men in general being the enemy, it is patriarchy, as part of class society and capitalism-imperialism, who is the enemy. Likewise, women are not simply the revolutionary subject: many women are defenders of the class system and thus are in the reactionary camp, even when they purport to seek to emancipate women.

5. An embrace of large-scale, mass mobilization of society as a whole, and proletarian masses specifically, as the method of struggle for liberation, as opposed to separatism, small group, “safe space” emphasis in other trends – as well as a rejection of the underlying theoretical frameworks that these separatist trends represent. While not hostile to trade unionist frameworks, it does advocate the formation of cadre and mass formations of a proletarian feminist nature as an exercise of self-determination within a wider proletarian and revolutionary movement.

6. Anti-imperialism and a global focus on patriarchy, rather than a focus solely on the needs of white, affluent, Euro-American women. This includes inserting into the conversation on sexuality the consequences of the sex trade, sex tourism, and pornography for poor, non-white, and oppressed nationality women, specially in the internal colonies, neo-colonial, semi-colonial, and colonial world. It also includes a rejection of unproblematized support for women’s emancipation for the purpose of supporting imperialist plunder, such as the advocacy by some feminists of equal opportunities in imperialist armed forces. The only army we fight for gender equality in is the People’s Army.

7. Advocacy of revolutionary organization and mass political activity and a rejection of reformist organizing and affinity-based activity – but not reforms themselves – and of the belief that organizational hierarchy is inherently patriarchal, masculine, and otherwise alien to women and thus opposed to feminism. A revolutionary party that contains people of all genders as cadre and leaders is not only seen as necessary, but advocated centrally as part of proletarian feminism. And this Party leading a People’s Army in which patriarchy is struggled against at any level, in which women develop as leaders and soldiers is also central to proletarian feminism.

8. Advocacy of all means of struggle, nonviolent and violent, in advancing the struggle against patriarchy from a proletarian and revolutionary perspective. This rejects all claims of violence being patriarchal as biological essentialism. This also recognizes the capacity of women to be as ruthless as men when it comes to being oppressors – the fact that men dominate society is not an issue of biological capacity or inherent nature of women. Cultural feminist claims of women being less violent or more loving are in fact based on patriarchal notions of sex/gender roles, which mirror male chauvinist arguments about the incapacity of women compared to men.

9. A historical materialist recognition and embrace of the experiences in the struggle against patriarchy and women’s oppression in the socialist movements and socialist revolutions in Russia, China, and others, as well as within movements exercising dual power today. This stands against the rejection by many feminists of proletarian and socialist contributions to feminism, either because of anti-communist propaganda or sectarian denialism. A very relevant example of this erasure by bourgeois feminism is the capture and erasure of proletarian women of the International Working Women’s Day into the International Women’s Day. Another example is the ignorance of the advanced nature of the practices and rules within existing people’s armies, such as the New People’s Army having marriage between people of all genders since the late 1990s.

Unfortunately, Ghandy’s “Trends” article – and subsequent ones by Ghandy, who died prematurely at age 54 – failed to fully flesh out the theoretical and practical universalities of a universal proletarian feminism – mostly those as they applied to Indian conditions only. 

This summation seeks to create the space for this development of a certain universal insight – in particular the struggle against cultural feminism, radical feminism, and liberal feminism, as well as the negative influence the frameworks these forms have had at times on proletarian feminist themselves. 

This important as practice develops in which proletarian feminists, rather than engaging in a break and continuity with previous trends, fall back into notions that represent a step back in the theoretical and practical struggle against patriarchy and capitalism-imperialism.

On the other hand, we are not idly standing by waiting to be completely correct and thorough to understand in what we are correct: a rejection of capitalism and class society, a rejection of bourgeois feminisms as not liberating but simply managing oppression and of biological essentialism as a breach on the necessary solidarity of people as people, and protracted people’s war needed for the proletariat to take power, and begin the task of not merely surviving patriarchy, but abolishing it altogether. Proletarian feminism responds to patriarchal fire with the water of socialist revolution, to bourgeois feminist peace of the graveyard with the violence of proletarian dictatorship.
