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 democratic revolution 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 regime.
The CPP and the NPA salutes the fierce determination of the PLGA to daringly 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 and exploiters.
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 national democratic and socialist revolutions around the world!
