Message of solidarity to the Communist Party of
India (Maoist) on its 18th anniversary
September 21, 2022
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New
People’s Army extends its fraternal greetings of revolutionary solidarity to the
Communist Party of India (Maoist) on the occasion of its 18th anniversary.
The CPP honors the 124 heroes and martyrs who died in the past year while serving
the cause of new democratic revolution in India, including members of the Central
Committee of CPI (Maoist) and warriors of the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army. We
grieve over their deaths, but more importantly, we draw inspiration from their
example of selfless dedication to the liberation of all the oppressed and exploited
classes and people.
The CPP deeply appreciates the gesture of international solidarity of the CPI (Maoist)
in paying tribute to Ka Oris, former NPA spokesperson, as well as other communist
and revolutionary leaders across the world.
The CPP supports the CPI (Maoist) in leading the resistance against the fascist and
reactionary Brahmanic Hindutva Narendra Modi regime, particularly in fighting to
overcome and frustrate the all-out military offensives against the revolutionary
forces and people under the so-called “SAMADHAN”-Prahar strategic offensive. We
are inspired by the determination of the CPI (Maoist) and the PLGA to resist the
relentless fascist onslaught that vainly seeks to crush the people’s democraticrevolution and pave the way for greater imperialist plunder of India’s resources and
exploitation of its workers and peasants.
We are gratified by the persevering efforts of the CPI (Maoist) to consolidate, expand
its membership, and strengthen democratic centralism from the level of its leadership
to its branches. Every communist around the world must commend your efforts to
study and apply Marxism-Leninism-Maoism to your short-term and long-term
goals. Indeed, the unity of will of the CPI (Maoist) is the key to the unifying the
proletariat and people of India as it overcomes the violent attacks of the fascist
The CPP and the NPA salute the fierce determination of the PLGA to fight back against
the enemy’s offensives. We are deeply elated by the PLGA’s victories in the field of
armed struggle, despite experiencing temporary setbacks. These victories raise the
revolutionary enthusiasm of the Filipino people and revolutionaries as much as it
intensifies the determination of the Indian masses to rise up against their oppressors
We are also elated by the efforts of the CPI (Maoist) to build, broaden and strengthen
the united front and mass movement of the Indian people against the anti-people,
anti-worker and anti-peasant policies of the Modi regime. Through the Party’s
leadership and efforts to arouse, organize and mobilize, the broad masses of the
Indian people are sure to rise up in greater numbers in broad democratic resistance
similar to the recent peasant uprising and broad workers strike movement.
The international capitalist system and its insoluble crisis of overproduction continue
to subject peoples and entire countries to grave economic crisis. In a vain effort to
further expand its profits, the imperialists are waging wars and causing widespread
destruction of productive forces. In collusion with the local reactionary classes, they
are intensifying the plunder of resources of its semicolonies and the exploitation of workers and peasants around the world. The entire world presently face threats of
recession and depression, with hundreds of millions of people suffering from rising
inflation, especially in terms of food and fuel prices, widespread unemployment and
overall economic slowdown.
The crisis is engendering conditions of widespread resistance. All over the world,
people are rising up spontaneously to demand higher wages, lower prices and greater
social protection. Amid these conditions, communists in all countries must work
doubly hard to make the proletariat perform its leadership role in order to guide and
direct the broad masses of the people to the path of revolutionary resistance. It is the
duty of communists to link up the daily struggles of the people with the long-term
goal of ending imperialist oppression in order to attain the people’s aspiration for
national freedom, democracy and socialism.
The CPP and the all revolutionary forces in the Philippines stand with the CPI (Maoist)
and its revolutionary forces in advancing the revolutionary cause against imperialism
and all reaction. Together, let us accumulate more and more achievements and
celebrate each other’s victories.
Long live the Communist Party of India (Maoist)!
Long live the Communist Party of the Philippines!
Long live the revolutionary guerrilla fighters of India and the Philippines!
Long live the workers and peasants of India and the Philippines!
Carry forward the natiworkers and peasants around the world
