Unconditional release for all political prisoners in India ! 25th
January 2014 Great International Day of Solidarity and Struggle!
In India more than 10.000 supposed Maoists are languishing in jails,
to them are to be added other thousands of prisoners involved in the
national liberation movements (Kashmir, Manipur, etc.) or other
Beside with the leaders, cadres and members of the PLGA, more than the
90% of that number are Adivasi villagers who resisted the forced
evacuation; peasants who struggled against the MOUs signed by
governments and TNCs to exploit the people and continue the imperialist
looting of natural resources; activists of the national minorities
organized against the rising threat of Hindu communal fascism; students,
intellectuals, artists belonging the RDF and other democratic
organizations, guilty of standing on the side of the people facing the
war on them waged by the Indian state; people’s women,feminists united
to rebel against the huge escalation of rapes, committed in part by the
armed and police forces and paramilaty fascist squads sponsored by the
State, as weapon of the war on people.
In jails the prisoners face every kind of harassment, torture, denial of
bails, inhumane living conditions, arbitrary transfers, brutal assaults
and punishments of solitary confinement, and often the detained women
In spite of the fierce condition of detention, prisoners are resisting
and struggling with revolutionary spirit and turning the dark jails in
which are confined into a battlefront against the raising fascism in
India and the Indian regime.
The struggle for their unconditional release is an urgent task for
all the solidarity forces and friends of Indian people, and it is
integral part of the support for the victory of their liberation war.
But all India is more and more transformed by the ruling classes into a “prison house of people’s movements”.
Since mid-2009, the Indian ruling classes, under the guidance and
with the assistance of imperialists, launched the multi-pronged and
country-wide offensive called Operation Green Hunt – a war on people to
wipe out the Maoist movement and suppress the genuine struggles of the
While repression on oppressed masses is the hallmark of any exploiting
state and always has been a feature of the Indian State, the Operation
Green has surpassed all the previous offensives both in its scale and
Thousands of revolutionary and democratic mass organizations leaders and
members have been assassinated, tortured and put in jails. Blamed under
false cases, many of them are facing harsh punishments.
Massacres, gang rapes, looting and destruction of villages by armed forces have become the order of the day.
The Operation Green Hunt – War on People – is supposed aimed to wipe out
the Maoist movement but it is in fact it targets and is aimed to
suppress any genuine democratic demand of the people, by framing them in
cases linked with the CPI (Maoist) according the draconian laws adopted
by the central and state governments, that brand people’s leaders and
strugglers as ‘anti-national or terrorists’.
Stop the Operation Green Hunt, stop the War on People !
But the liberation war of the masses in India cannot be stopped by the savage repression, rather it extends the political and moral solidarity to the liberation war.
Many international initiatives and efforts built solidarity with
people in India and supported their struggle for liberation, including
the great International Conference of Hamburg and the International Days
of Actions organized by the International Committee of Support. These
initiatives had impact throughout the world and in India itself, dealt
blows to imperialism and the Indian regime, that today reacts urging the
governments, first those of EU, to stop the initiatives of solidarity.
It is for this reason that today more than ever it is necessary to further consolidate and extend the solidarity.
Therefore we call to a large International Day of Solidarity and struggle for the unconditional release of the political prisoners in India on 25th of January 2014,
to be held everywhere is possible in the world, in all the possible
ways decided by the committees and solidarity forces at national level,
with street actions, that call the masses to participate, and counter-information actions and protests
towards embassies, consulates, offices of the international press and
humanitarian organizations etc., to be held during the week before the International Day.
