FILIPINAS: Message of solidarity to the Communist Party of India (Maoist) on the occasion of its 17th anniversary (CPP)
Communist Party of the Philippines September 17, 2021
Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New Peopleʹs Army
(NPA) convey its warmest revolutionary solidarity to the Communist Party
of India (Maoist) as it marks its 17th founding anniversary with
week-long celebrations on September 21 to 27. The CPP and all
revolutionary forces celebrate the revolutionary victories of the CPI
(Maoist) together with the Red fighters of the Peopleʹs Liberation
Guerrilla Army (PLGA), and the workers and peasants of India.
CPP is inspired by the deep and iron resolve of the CPI (Maoist) to
confront the challenges and overcome all obstacles to carry forward the
peopleʹs war in India. Indeed, the CPP and the revolutionary forces in
the Philippines always keep an eye on developments at the Indian
revolutionary front and how the CPI (Maoist) leads efforts to counter
the most vicious attacks of the reactionary ruling classes and frustrate
the declared aim of the fascist Modi regime to crush the Indian
revolution by 2022.
CPP firmly salutes all the leaders and cadres of the CPI (Maoist), the
commanders and fighters of the PLGA and the revolutionary masses of
India. We pay homage to all revolutionary martyrs, as well as the
martyred protesting farmers, mass leaders and activists who have been
killed by state terrorism and statesponsored religious extremism, The
oppressed and exploited classes in India, as well as the small and
middle bourgeoisie are grateful that the revolutionary proletariat
through the communist party is leading their struggle to end
imperialism, feudalism and comprador bureaucratic capitalism and to the
rotten semicolonial and semifeudal system which have brought
interminable misery to them. Since its founding, the CPI (Maoist), born
out of the consolidation of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist forces, has proven
itself capable and determined to lead the struggle for new democracy and
socialism in India. It is currently leading the Indian people in the
struggle to defend their rights and interests against the fascist Modi
are gratified at how the CPI (Maoist) is supporting and leading the
broad peasant masses in India in their fight against the neoliberal
agricultural laws that will allow big companies to manipulate prices of
agricultural commodities to drive the peasants to bankruptcy and hunger
and take away their lands. The mass struggles of millions of Indian
peasants since late last year have reverberated across the world,
showing how conditions of desperation have been turned into mass action.
successful mass struggles are a source of inspiration for the peasant
masses in the Philippines and other countries. The CPI (Maoist)
continues to successfully arouse and lead the masses of the adivasi or
indigenous people in their struggle to defend their ancestral land
against the aggression of mining and "development" projects. The
adivasis, long neglected by the reactionary ruling classes, have found
power by waging revolution. The CPI (Maoist) also continues to arouse,
organize and mobilize the broad masses of workers, women, the Dalits
(lower caste), the youth, progressive intellectuals and others oppressed
classes and sectors in the fight to defend their welfare and democratic
rights which are inextricably linked to the struggle to transform the
entire Indian social system through revolution.
Indian reactionary classes are threatened and terrified by the rise of
the peopleʹs revolutionary resistance led by the CPI (Maoist). It has
resorted to murdering revolutionaries and activists, persecution of
dissent, illegal searches and arrests and other brutal forms of
suppression. Over the past years, it has whipped up "anti-terrorism" and
ethnic and religious fanaticism to step up fascist attacks against the
oppressed and exploited classes and minority groups.
viciousness of the attacks of the reactionary state in India is similar
to the brutal and cruel suppression of the state terrorist drive being
carried out by the reactionary fascist state in the Philippines under
the regime of Rodrigo Duterte. Both Modi and Duterte have declared to
put an end to the peopleʹs armed resistance by 2022 to please the
imperialist big corporations who seek to intensify the exploitation of
the people and plunder the vast resources of both countries. Like the
Indian people, the oppressed and exploited classes and sectors in the
Philippines aspire for national and social liberation.
Filipino people are waging armed struggle and other forms of
resistance. Under the leadership of the Communist Party of the
Philippines, the New Peopleʹs Army continues to wage protracted peopleʹs
war by carrying out extensive and intensive guerrilla warfare on the
basis of an ever widening and deepening mass base. It carries out
widespread mass work, wages antifeudal struggles, builds revolutionary
mass organizations, recruits Red fighters especially from the young
peasants, and builds organs of political power in the countryside.
of the NPA mounts big and small tactical offensives within the current
middle-phase of the strategic defensive stage to annihilate part by part
the enemyʹs armed forces, seize its weapons and further strengthen the
peopleʹs army, At the same time, the CPPʹs branches in the cities
continue to expand and strengthen the revolutionary forces among the
workers, the urban semiproletariat and pettybourgeoisie, in order to
fight for their rights and welfare, rouse the peopleʹs patriotic spirit
and wage struggles against imperialist intervention, and generate broad
political support for the armed resistance in the countryside.
Indian and Filipino peoples must build and strengthen their solidarity
links as they wage common struggles against imperialism, feudalism and
bureaucrat capitalism. They must draw inspiration from each otherʹs
struggles and victories. They can provide each other with every possible
form of political, moral and material assistance with the selfless aim
of helping one another carry forward their struggles and surmount all
hindrances and obstacles.
the occasion of the CPI (Maoist)ʹs 17th anniversary, the CPP expresses
admiration for your strong determination to carry forward the peopleʹs
armed resistance and democratic struggles despite the intensified
attacks of the forces of state terrorism. We are inspired by your
program to strengthen the communist party ideologically, politically and
organizationally. You are showing extraordinary fortitude in upholding,
promoting and applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism to serve the purpose of
achieving the emancipation of the oppressed and exploited classes of
is without doubt that the CPI (Maoist) will continue to gain strength
as it wages the peopleʹs war in India. Every achievement of the CPI
(Maoist) serves to advance the cause of the international proletariat
during this period of resurgence of socialist and new democratic
Uphold, defend and promote Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Long live the Communist Party of India (Maoist)!
Long live the Communist Party of the Philippines!
Long live proletarian solidarity between the CPI (Maoist) and the CPP!
Victory to the peopleʹs war in India and the Philippines!
