Observe World Protest Day against Kagaar. - COMMUNIST PARTY OF INDIA (MAOIST) Central Committee

15 June, 2024

Observe World Protest Day against Kagaar.

March forward with the oppressed people of the world.

Dear people,

On July 1, World protest day against "operation kagaar", a call has been given by the International Committee for the Support of People's War in India (ICSPWI). First, the Central Committee of CPI (Maoist) express its gratitude to ICSPWI.

To wipe out from its root, more than five decades old people's war from India, the Indian ruling classes have started new counter-insurgency military campaign from January 2024 in the name of "operation kagaar". In this military campaign, more 125 revolutionary masses, cadres of various rank and file, PLGA guerillas have been murdered, which includes 6-month-old baby to above 60 years old Indian citizen. By remembering the martyrs, our party conveys its red salute to the international people, who with the spirit of international proletarianism are raising their voice to stop the genocide on oppressed people of India.

Our Party appeals to the countrymen to come forward against operation kagaar and defeat the fascist policies of the Indian ruling classes, and march shoulder to shoulder with the international people who has given the call to observe world protest day against kagaar to save the people's war in India and to stop the brutal military assaults on the people.

From the past six months, the ongoing operation kagaar's military attacks and genocides on the people of India, especially in the Central India on the indigenous people of Dandakaranya region, has been severely condemned and voices has been raised for the establishment of peace in Dandakaranya by the lovers of democracy, progressive, pro-people, and revolutionary organizations and forces, and they are marching forward in various forms. America, Europe, South America, Africa, and several countries from Asia are demanding the Indian state to stop the operation kagaar immediately. Recently, during the G-7 meetings in Italy, a protest rally has been organized against the operation kagaar. Their fraternity with the oppressed people displays the international proletariat spirit.

In our country, several revolutionary organizations, forces, democrats, journalist, writers, artists, pro-adivasi, social activits and lawyers are condemning operation kagaar in various ways. While condemning the illegal activities of the police forces, they are knocking the doors of judiciary. They are calling for strike. To stop the genocide and the bloodshed, they are appealing the Indian people to intensify their movements. They are condemning the treacherous plan of peace talks by the Chhattisgarh government and demanding to hold peace talks with Maoist party with honesty. First, they are demanding to stop the ongoing genocides on the people and withdraw extra security camps from the forest. Our party conveys red salute to all these people.

On January 1 in the state of Chhattisgarh, in Bijapur district's Mudhvendi village, police murdered six-month old infant girl. After that, they are committing genocides in every 8 to 10 days. In the continuous genocides; Chipurbati, Korcholi, Aapatola, Kakur-Tekametta, Pidiya, Rekavaya and Gobel, in general indigenous youths, peasants and revolutionary without making any discrimination of female, male and old age, are being killed. This apart, in several other incidents, adivasi youths are getting killed and police are stating that Maoists have been killed and are spreading their false stories. After every encounter, the central home minister, Amit Shah by appreciating the criminal police personnel, is legitimatizing the encounter, and announcing time-period to make India Maoist free. All fallacious statements of Amit Shah are vehemently criticized by the Indian people, and while taking the dead bodies they are saying to the world the truth of the events, and filing cases against the culprits in the police station. By standing in support with them, several journalists, you-tuber, and social activists are doing ground reports to say the truth.

The indigenous people, because of their tradition, whenever they go to forest, they carry traditional weapons to protect themselves from the wild animals. But after the commencement of operation kagaar, there is an illegal ban on the indigenous people to go to forest. After killing village people, the police are not stating the names of the deceased person, not showing their faces, and wrapping the dead bodies in the plastic sheets, and declaring that "unidentified Maoists have been killed". Bedside the dead bodies, weapons, bombs and revolutionary books and papers are decorated and displayed. Even some dead bodies are covered with guerillas uniforms. People are exposing, instantly these illegally activities of the police. To save their lives from the police firings, people are running to forest, but the security forces, already encircled the area, are killing them even after the villager's requests not to kill them. Through these brutalities on the people, they want to terrorize the people to separate them from the movement for justice and eliminate the Maoist party; this is the aim of this military campaign. It is also clear that, to hand over the natural resources to the imperialist forces and big domestic corporate houses, the Indian state is carrying out this genocidal war. To eliminate the movements of the indigenous people who are fighting for their forests, existence, and dignity, in the eastern and central India's forest regions, which is going on for more than 20 years by pouring bloods, the Indian ruling classes have started operation kagaar and they are stating that this is for the end of Maoist party.

Dear people of the country and the world,

In the recent 18th Lok Sabha's election, the people of India have defeated the pro-corporate hindutva BJP. From the past 10 years, the pro-corporate BJP's anti-people policies have caused enormous problems for the people and they have taught a lesson to Modi-Shah, who were repeatedly shouting, this time more than 400 seats. People have exposed the bogus development model of BJP and its slogan of Sab Ka Saath, Sab Ka Vishwas(with everyone help and with everyone confidence) and shown the power of people in this election. They smashed the hopes of the imperialist forces and the domestic corporate houses to make Modi win the election with absolute majority, so that they can loot the enormous natural resources of the country with more speed. With their help, the hindutva forces to make India a developed country by 2047 (hindu nation, brought forward Surajkund policy in 2022. The people of India have rejected all these policies and poured water in their dream to make government with the strength of their own. By facing the wrath of the people from 10 years, Narendra Modi in a opportunistic way, merging with regional parties, has become Prime Minister for the third time.

The people of the country have clearly declared their stand against the government's corporatization and militarization policies in this election. They give their verdict against the hindutva policies. But they will not think to move away from their fascist policies, despite the people's verdict and global protest. Because imperialism is neck- stuck in deep crisis. To come out from the crisis, imperialism is throwing the people of the world in the morass of war. Their thirst for the resources is not going to be quenched. For them several Modi is needed. The need of the big market of India is equally there. Anyone comes in their way; they will remove from their military strength. But history every time says that it is not possible every time.

In today's people's movement, there stands on the hand all the corporate forces and their government agents who dance to their tunes, and on the other hand there are broad masses, workers, students, intellectuals, and employees who stands firm with the movement. The international oppressed masses are conveying their brotherhood from the bottom of the heart to these forces. We appeal to them to oppose those corporate companies who are investing capital dipped in the people's blood, in our country and force them to take back the capital. We need to speed up anti-imperialist movements and class struggles of the oppressed classes of the world by forging strong brotherhood among the oppressed classes of the world. How much repression and military onslaught they inflict on the masses, no fascist will be forgiven. They will die like a Hitler and in here also people will achieve victory, and history will prove this truth.

INDIA: RESIST GENOCIDE IN BASTAR! RESIST OPERATION KAGAR! (Revolutionary Student´s Front) - support to 1 july international day of action! - info ICSPWI





On January 1, a six-month old child was killed by the security forces and this was passed off as paramilitary forces as a “casualty of crossfire”. There were five witnesses to this incident including the mother of the child who claimed the security forces are lying. The fake encounter of three peasants in Nendra on January 16, and the murder of Ramesh Poyam when he went to take a bath in a river on January 30 are other such incidents that happened in January. On 13th January, the State used drones for aerial bombings in Mettaguda, Errapali and Bottethong – villages bordering Sukma-Bijapur in Bastar. On February 27, three villagers were killed and called “Maoists” by the security forces in Kanker. On April 2, the paramilitary forces killed 13 people, all of whom were claimed to be Maoists. Among these 13, was Kamli Kunjam – a deaf sick Adivasi minor who was dragged from her house, raped, murdered and her body brutalised so as to not leave evidence by the paramilitary forces. Human rights activist Bela Bhatia has found that among these 13, over 7 people had no links with the Maoists and were innocent villagers. On the same day, a 12 year old child was taken away by the security forces from her home in Korcholi. When she returned home after 6 days, she revealed she was forced to get down on all fours while the forces beat her on her back. She was also forced to cook for herself.
On April 2, Sarju Tekam, convener of Bastar Jan Sangharsh Committee was arrested on the fabricated charges of aiding Maoists. The police apparently recovered planted “evidence” from his house. On the same day, 13 people were detained by the police and no further information was given about their status for the upcoming week. On April 7, the forces used drones again for aerial bombardment of Palaguda, Ittaguda, Jiloraguda, Gommaguda and other villages. On April 16, 29 Maoist political activists were killed in an Anti-Naxal operation. Among these, only 12 were armed combatants and could resist the forces. 17 other political activists were captured, taken prisoners and beaten and then murdered in cold blood. The same thing happened in case of the April 2 encounter as well. On 3rd June, Suneeta Pottam, a civil rights activist of Bastar was arrested for "being linked with Maoists". 12 FIRs were lodged in her name. Killing captured Prisoners of War, raping and murdering civilians, murdering civilians and disguising their bodies in combatant uniforms – all of these flout the International Humanitarian Law.
The Adivasis of Bastar have always seen very brutal offensives being brought down upon them. Even during the Congress government, the Salwa Judum and the SPOs brought down similar terror upon their lives during Operation Greenhunt. The BJP has launched Operation SAMADHAN-Prahar-Kagar. All these governments want the same thing – to displace the Adivasis and profit off the minerals under the ground. But all these military offensives have been met with the bravest of heroic resistances. In front of genocide, the Adivasis of Bastar have stood tall for almost fifty years. Today it is the duty of the revolutionary, progressive and democratic people of the world to come forward and resist this war launched by the State. Let us observe July 1 as International Day against Operation Kagar.
Our demands -
Stop Operation SAMADHAN-Prahar-Kagaar.
Stop Aerial Bombardment of Bastar.
Release all political prisoners unconditionally.
Compensate all the families of the victims of fake encounters.

Stop Operation Kagaar! Communist Party of the Philippines -

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines recently proclaimed June 20-July 20 as a Month of Solidarity for the Indian people’s struggle, particularly the Adivasi masses’ fight against Operation Kagaar. In line with this, the PRWC is dedicating a page to compile all related articles, statements and documents on the struggle of the Indian people.

The pronouncement is a response to the call made by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and its international support group the International Committee to Support the People’s War in India (ICSPWI), for a campaign to oppose Operation Kagaar and support for the Adivasi people’s resistance, and the advancement of the people’s war in India as the primary means to thwart the regime’s suppression campaign.

Solidarity month with the Indian people's resistance to Operation Kagaar

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines declares June 20 to July 20 as Month of Solidarity with the Indian people, especially the Adivasi (indigenous) masses in their fight against the fascist Operation Kagaar and the terrorism of the Modi regime supported and instigated by the monopoly capitalist companies and imperialist powers.

The Central Committee calls upon all revolutionary forces and the Filipino people to express in various ways their support for the Indian people’s struggle against the heightening brutal war of suppression and counterinsurgency campaign of the reactionary Indian state.

This war is directed against the Indian people and their revolutionary forces led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist). Since January, the Indian state has been carrying out the Operation Kagaar (“end” in English) as part of the larger counterinsurgency campaign Operation SAMADHAN-Prahar.

Thousands of military, paramilitary, police and mercenary armed forces of the Indian state have been deployed in Central India to subdue the people. It is used by the ruling state primarily against civilians, Adivasis, activists, and anyone who resists or dares to speak out against state oppression and repression throughout the country. It also targets the revolutionary leaders of the CPI (Maoist). The operation clearly violates international humanitarian laws, the rules of war and special protections for vulnerable sectors in areas of armed conflict.

The suppression campaign in India is similar to the intensified suppression currently being experienced by the Filipino people under the US-Marcos fascist regime. It is characterized by the heightened use of widespread bombing and targeting of civilian communities. Militarization in India and the Philippines has served to pave the way for the entry of large-scale mining operations, destructive dams and foreign corporations.

The fascist regimes of Modi and Marcos are in collusion with each other. Last April 19, the first batch of BrahMos missile weapon systems arrived in the Philippines from India costing $375 million or ₱18.9 billion, paid for with public funds. The taxes of the Filipino people are used to satiate the big capitalist arms producers in India and to support the regime that oppresses the Indian people.

In the face of fascist suppression, the struggle of the Indian people and the Filipino people continues. Both of them exemplify courage in fighting terrorism and oppression, even when it is fraught with difficulties and sacrifice. Although thousands of miles apart, the struggle of the Indian masses and the Filipino masses serves as an inspiration to one other.

Amid a world being shaken by wars ignited, instigated or supported by imperialists, it is imperative that the people of India and the Filipino people unite to advance their struggle for national freedom and democracy. The liberation of their countries from imperialist oppression and domination would serve as an invaluable contribution to the global struggle against imperialism and for freedom and socialism.

End the Operation Kagaar in India!
Defend indigenous land in India and the Philippines!
Fight destructive mining in India and the Philippines!
Marcos and Modi, fascist-terrorists!
Down with Imperialism!
Long live the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army of India and the New People’s Army!
Long live the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and the Communist Party of the Philippines!, Camarades,.... Votre camarade Georges Abdallah, Camarades,
Votre mobilisation aujourd’hui, en soutien à l’héroïque Résistance du peuple palestinien et en solidarité avec
ses militant·es poursuivis en justice, s’inscrit d’emblée dans la dynamique globale de la lutte contre les
agressions génocidaires déchainées depuis plus de 250 jours, à Gaza et en Cisjordanie.
Tout naturellement, par ce temps de crise globale du système capitaliste mondialisé et l’exacerbation de toutes
ses contradictions et surtout au moment où la peste brune se manifeste bruyamment et sans fard partout en
Europe et arrive même à imposer la principale force politique dans certains pays, vos mobilisations, ainsi que
toutes les autres initiatives solidaires en faveur de la Palestine et de ses avant-gardes combattantes, sont
appelées à s’affirmer plus que jamais sur le terrain de la lutte contre la fascisation en cours ici en Europe et
ailleurs de par le monde., Camarades,
Bien que de nos jours, nous vivions tous sous l’hégémonie du capital mondialisé et bien qu’aucun pays
ne puisse échapper complètement au mécanisme destructeur de cette hégémonie, bien que ce soit ce
« capitalisme mondialisé » à savoir le capitalisme réellement existant, qui est en crise, il n’en demeure
pas moins, les effets de cette crise sont multiples et divers ; ils ne se manifestent pas uniformément ici et
ailleurs. Et comme toujours les luttes partent des effets concrets contre lesquels s’élèvent celles et ceux qui
les subissent. C’est bien pourquoi on est appelé pour réussir toutes ces résistances, toutes ces luttes, à
faire valoir les intérêts communs à l’ensemble des masses populaires œuvrant de leur libération et leur
émancipation et à faire le nécessaire pour agencer toujours les intérêts du mouvement dans sa totalité loin de

Sana’ and Milad Daqqah: Reproductive Heroism Defies Israel’s Prisons and Genocide

By Diana Block on June 12, 2024

I had the honor to be among the 3,600 people who greeted Palestinian journalist Sana’ Salameh Daqqah and her four year old child Milad at the recent Peoples Conference for Palestine held in Detroit over the May 24-26th weekend.  Mother and daughter were enthusiastically cheered by thousands of participants gathered in an auditorium which had been renamed Walid Daqqah Hall for martyred Palestinian political prisoner Walid Daqqah, Sana’s husband and Milad’s father. Their presence at the conference, carefully planned by the conference organizers, was an extraordinary expression of Palestinian resistance. Sana’ and Milad had overcome multiple travel obstacles meant to deter their appearance at this landmark solidarity conference. Most significantly, they had surmounted decades of obstruction by the Zionist prison system meant to prevent the birth of Milad.

Milad was conceived through the smuggling of sperm by Walid Daqqah from inside an Israeli prison. She was born to Sana’ in February 2020 during the 34th year of Walid’s imprisonment.  Walid and Sana’ met in a prison visiting room in 1996 when Sana’ came to report on prisoner conditions. In 1999 they won the difficult fight to get married inside Ashkelon prison with the presence of their comrades and members of their family. However, they were unable to win their struggle for conjugal visits.

Walid had been arrested in 1986 at the age of twenty-five and convicted of directing a group that abducted and killed an Israeli soldier for the purpose of exchanging him for Palestinian prisoners held by Israel. His thirty-seven year sentence meant that he would likely be too old to have a child by the time he was released. So Sana’and Walid committed to the “liberation of sperm,”as Sana’ called it in a speech at the conference.
