Afghan Maoists call for election boycott

Posted by Admin on August 20, 2009

logoThe Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan is committed to use all its strength for the broader success of the campaign to boycott the elections and to prepare the path of the struggle for to launch and wage the people’s revolutionary war of national resistance against the imperialist occupiers and national traitors.

10 August 2009. A World to Win News Service. Following are excerpts from a July leaflet by the Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan.

Dear people of our country!

As you know the second round of the puppet regime’s presidential election and local council elections will be held in late August. The reactionary- imperialist show has already started. We call on all of you: Do not take part in the puppet regime’s presidential and the local council’s elections!

We issue this call because:

First of all: Many people believe that participation in this election will be even less than last time, and that only a very small minority of the population will vote. Our people have the right to react to the upcoming elections with indifference. They experienced the results of previous elections: more murdering bombardments, the deepening and spreading of the regime’s corruption, homelessness, unemployment, poverty and hunger among the toilers… Read the rest of this entry »

CPI Maoist Call for thousand more Lalgarhs

Posted by Admin on August 20, 2009

lalgarh-demonstration-330Bhubaneswar: On a day when the Prime Minister discussed the Naxalite threat to the country, the ultra-left militants gave a call to create “thousands of Lalgarh-type liberated zones”.

HT is in possession of a three-page document released by the politburo of the CPI (Maoist), the banned political party of the Naxalites, to its estimated 25,000 cadres, which “hailed the glorious mass uprising in West Bengal” and called upon “the revolutionary masses to come forward in support of the Lalgarh movement”.

For seven months, the Naxalites had “liberated” a 1,300 sq km zone in Lalgarh in West Bengal’s West Midnapur district, 200 km south west of Kolkata, where the writ of the civil administration, including the police, did not run.

The 5,000-strong People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA), the much-feared armed militia of the Maoists, is believed to have been behind this operation. Read the rest of this entry »

The Great Lalgarh Revolt

by n3wday on August 20, 2009

This this was written by Banned Thought and is an introduction to a series of articles collected and posted on the site.

Starting in November 2008, the tribal people (or adivasis) of the Lalgarh village area of the Midnapore district of West Bengal, India, rose up against decades of oppression and abuse by the police and armed thugs of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). This party is usually known by its initials as the “CPM”. Despite its name, this is by no means a revolutionary Marxist party; it is instead a revisionist or phony “communist” party, which represents not the workers, peasants and the poor, but actually the ruling alliance of exploiting classes (capitalists and landlords). The CPM has been in power in West Bengal for decades, and has come to demonstrate that old revolutionary Marxist addage that revisionism in power is nothing other than outright fascism as far as the masses of people are concerned.

Naturally the people of West Bengal are more and more resisting this state oppression, but when a revolt like that in Lalgarh occurs, the CPM police and armed goons become all the more ferocious in their attempts to suppress the people’s upsurge and drive them back into submission. There are now huge numbers of state police and paramilitary forces in the Lalgarh area attempting to put down the people’s revolt. But the mass struggle is continuing! Read the rest of this entry »

Out of sight: army of youths Absence fuels fear of permanent “insurgency”

Absence fuels fear of permanent insurgency SUJAN DUTTA

A poster planted by the People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities at Arma, the first village between the newly captured Ramgarh and Lalgarh town. The poster says police would not be allowed to enter unless the 23 demands, which include the SP seeking forgiveness holding his ears for atrocities in November, are met and wants an explanation from the Centre for deploying the CRPF to ‘protect the CPM from the people’s wrath’.

Ramgarh, June 28: A whole generation of tribal youths is not in sight in villages the security forces have been through in Lalgarh, prompting fears that some could have taken shelter in forests and eventually become part of a “permanent insurgency”.

In relief camps at Pirakata, Kuldiha, Goaltore and Lalgarh, most people standing in the long queues to collect rice and cooked food are the elderly or women with children in their arms.

As security forces pushed into Ramgarh on Saturday from Goaltore, most villages on the way — Pingboni, Kadashole, Mohultola, Khartola, Tetultola, Kushmasholi, Chowkisal — are bereft of people except for the very old. Read the rest of this entry »

West Bengal villagers resist DVC wall construction, Police jeep burnt

Posted by Admin on August 20, 2009

Durgapur, Aug. 19: Villagers led by the Trinamul Congress today resisted the construc- tion of a boundary wall for an upcoming DVC power plant in Burdwan’s Andal and fought police demanding that a crematorium be spared.

They pelted the police with stones, burnt three jeeps and brought to a halt construction of the wall for the 1,000MW plant, 180km from Calcutta. Two policemen had to be hospitalised with cracked skulls and five others needed first aid.

The Trinamul man leading the charge also added a new demand. “All sharecroppers and labourers who worked on this land (700 acres) should get compensation,” panchayat leader Raju Roy said.

The proposed power plant needs 1,000 acres. The state government acquired 700 acres for the central government unit without a hitch last year as the land was not very fertile. But the villagers wanted an alternative plot nearby to house the crematorium.

Several rounds of talks were held between the villagers and the administration over the past year, but no alternative could be worked out. Read the rest of this entry »

Lalgargh-Movement62 held on ‘false’ charges go on strike

Statesman News Service
MIDNAPORE, 19 AUG: Sixty two inmates of Midnapore West central Correctional Home today staged a hunger strike demanding their release and immediate withdrawal of the joint forces from the Junglemahal, according to jail sources. These inmates were held recently on charges of having Maoist links. The inmates claimed that the allegations were untrue.

On the other hand seven people of Salboni area, who were in jail custody for 58 days for their alleged involvement in anti-state activities (Section 121/ 122/123 124 of IPC and Section 25 and 27 of the Arms Act) where granted bail today by the district session judge Mr RN Guin in whose court they were produced. Another person Sushil Mahato was arrested from Pirakatha in Salboni on charges of having Maoist links today.

Meanwhile, CPI-M’s zonal committee office at Dherua in Midnapore Sadar block was ransacked by a group of people allegedly backed by the Police Santrash Birodhi Public Committee (PSBPC) early today. Meanwhile, the PSBPC’S indefinite bandh in Midnapore West, Bankura and Purulia crippled life particularly in the Junglemahal for the second successive day today. Alarmed after four iron material-laden trucks were torched by PSBPC activists in Binpore last evening, no vehicle, not even a two wheeler, ventured to move in the area. Markets were closed and students did not attend their classes.
