Now they have Maoist Communist Party, Manipur.

Posted by admin on August 14th, 2011 The Next Front

(It is a matter of pleasure  for us that the oppressed people of Manipur  have raised the flag of Marxism-Leninism and Maoism. We express our strong solidarity with them, who are fighting against the Indian reactionaries for their national sovereignty and liberation. Now they have their own party–Maoist Communist Party Manipur.  Recently  they have concluded the first political conference of the  party.

 We have the document of Maoist Communist Party, Manipur.  This document has focused on many issues regarding to the national as well as international communist movement. There are some questions to be discussed, but we appreciate the main spirit of this document. Thanks to making this Historical Document available. Here is an extract from the document:

Maoist Communist Party, Manipur


The first political conference of the Kangleipak Communist Party (Maoist) has concluded with a historical success. The Conference unanimously adopted the party program.

That, the 1st political conference resolved to change the name of the Party as Maoist Communist Party of Manipur. Maoist Communist Party, Manipur bases itself on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism with the creative application of this universal truth to the concrete conditions of the Manipur revolution under the collective leadership of the Party.

Maoist Communist Party-Manipur will be the vanguard of the proletariat in Manipur, which is part of the world proletariat, sworn the basic principles:
•  The masses are the makers of history, and “It is right to rebel;”

•   Contradiction, the sole and fundamental law of the incessant transformation of eternal matter;

•   Class struggle, the dictatorship of the proletariat, and proletarian internationalism;
•   The necessity of a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Party which applies with firmness its independence, independent decision, and self reliance;
•   Smash Colonialism, imperialism, revisionism and reaction implacably and relentlessly;
•   Conquer and defend power through the People’s War;
•   Militarization of the Party and the concentric construction of the three instruments of the revolution;

•   Two-line struggle as the motive force of the Party’s development;
•   Constant ideological transformation and always putting politics in command;

•   Serve the people and the world proletarian revolution;

The Maoist Communist Party, Manipur is the consolidated political vanguard of the Manipur proletariat. Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is the ideological basis guiding its thinking in all the spheres of its activities. Immediate aim or program of the Party is to carry on and complete the new democratic revolution in Manipur as a part of the world proletarian revolution by overthrowing the colonial, semi-feudal system and the three targets of the revolution—Colonialism, imperialism and Comprador-Bureaucratic-Bourgeoisie (CBB). The ultimate aim of the party is the establishment of communist society. This New Democratic Revolution will be carried out and completed through armed agrarian revolutionary war i.e. the Protracted People’s War with area wise seizure of power remaining as its central task.

The Protracted People’s War will be carried out by encircling the cities from the countryside and thereby finally capturing them. Hence the countryside as well as the Protracted People’s War will remain as the center of gravity of the party’s work from the very beginning. During the whole process of this revolution the party, army and the united front will play the role of three magic weapons. The party will play the primary role; where as the army and the united front will be two important weapons in the hands of the party. Because the armed struggle will remain the highest and main form of struggle and army as the highest form of organization of this revolution, hence armed struggle will play a decisive role. Whereas the united front will be built in the course of advancing armed struggle and for armed struggle. Mass organizations and mass struggles are necessary and indispensable but their purpose is to serve the war. The immediate and most urgent task of the party is to establish full-fledged people’s Army (PA) and base areas by developing and transforming the guerilla zones and guerrilla bases.

Just after completing the NDR the party will advance towards establishing socialism without any delay or interception. Because the NDR will already lay the basis for socialism and hence there will be no pause. Thereafter, the party will continue to advance towards realizing communism by continuing the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Socialist society covers a considerable long historical period. Throughout this historical period, there will be classes, class contradictions and class struggle. The struggle between socialist road and capitalist road will also continue to exist. Only depending on and carrying forward the theory of continuing the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat can correctly resolve all these contradictions. In this context the GPCR initiated and led by Mao Tse-tung was a great political revolution carried out under the conditions of socialism by the proletariat against the bourgeoisie and all other exploiting classes to consolidate the dictatorship of the proletariat and there by fighting against the danger of capitalist restoration.

Party will also continue to hold high the proletarian internationalism and will continue to firmly contribute more forcefully in uniting the genuine M-L-M forces at the international level. While uniting the M-L-M forces, it will also establish unity with oppressed people and nations of the whole world and continue its fight together with them in advancing towards completing the world proletarian revolution against imperialism and all reaction, thereby paving the way towards realizing communism on a world scale.
To this end we proclaim the following objectives:

1.   Destruction of the colonial Manipur State which rule by the Indian colonialist.
2.   Demolitions of the present State apparatus, the dictatorship of the exploiters led by the Manipur Comprador bureaucrat bourgeoisie that make sustain and develop the Indian colonialism in Manipur.

3.   Sweep away colonial oppression, general confiscation of its monopolies, banks and all forms of its property.

4.   Destroy bureaucratic capitalism, both private and state; confiscate all of its economic properties, possessions and rights, along with those of imperialism, for the benefit of the new state.

5.   Liquidation of semi-feudal property and all of its subsistent modes, confiscating it to give the lands to the peasantry, primarily the poor peasantry, applying the principle of “Land to those who work it.”

6.   Fight to establish the People’s Republic of Manipur as a united front of classes based on the alliance of the working class and peasantry led its Communist Party; this is the formation of the New Democracy which will carry forward a new economy, a new politics, and a new culture.

7. Develop the people’s war which, through a revolutionary army of a new type under the absolute leadership of the Party, destroys part by part the old power, principally its armed and repressive forces, and serves to construct the new power for the proletariat and people.

8. Foster the development of the Manipur proletariat as part of the world proletarian class, the formation and strengthening of communist parties and their unification in a revived international communist movement guided by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism; all of this so that the proletariat can fulfill its great and historic mission as the final class.

9. Defend the liberties, rights, benefits and conquests that the working class and masses have achieved at the cost of their own blood, recognizing these and guaranteeing that they are really in force through a “Declaration of the Rights of the People.” Respect particularly the right to religious conscience, but in its exact dimensions, to believe as well as not to believe.
10.   Real equality for women; a better future for the youth; protection for mothers and children; respect and support for the aged.

11.   A new culture as a fighting weapon to concretize the new nationality that serves the popular masses and is guided by the scientific ideology of the proletariat. Give special importance to education.

12.  Support the struggles of the international proletariat, of the oppressed nations and peoples of the world; fighting against the superpowers, the United States and imperialism in general, international reaction and revisionism of every form; understanding the Manipuri revolution as part of the world proletarian revolution.

13.  Struggle tenaciously and heroically for the full and complete victory of the democratic revolution throughout the country, and, this stage completed, immediately and without any transition period, go over to the socialist revolution in order to, together with the international proletariat, the oppressed nations and the peoples of the world, through cultural revolutions, continue humanity’s march to its final goal, communism.

War on people in Manipur

Posted by Admin on December 9, 2009

Source: Radical Notes Posted by Campaign against War on People December 5, 2009 at 2:22 pm in India, Manipur, Self-Determination, State Terrorism

Statement delivered by Malem Ningthouja, on behalf of Campaign for Peace & Democracy (Manipur) at the Convention Against War on People on 4 December 2009 in New Delhi.

Most of us are concerned about the escalating scale of war on people perpetrated by the state mercenaries in several parts of the present day Indian subcontinent. Under the aegis of the bourgeoning Indian capitalist rulers who are in control of the state and the media, war crimes are being perpetrated with impunity everywhere and wherever democratic movements towards durable peace, development and democracy become prominent. On this occasion of the Convention Against War on People I would like to draw your attention towards the prevailing war on people in Manipur.

Historical Background

(1) Present India is a post 1947 political invention under the vested capitalist initiative of the Indian ruling class by overriding the national interests of several ethnic and political communities. The principle of voluntary unionism has not been followed. Read the rest of this entry »

“UNLF Central Committee call upon the collective leadership, cadres and fighters of the NSCN (IM) to consider withdrawing from the ‘ceasefire’ and ‘peace-talk’ so as to fight together for liberating the entire region from India occupation” the release said, adding “We also extend our appeal to the Kuki armed groups under Suspension of Operation to come out of it and shoulder the common responsibility for building an independent future”.

Manipur: UNLF calls for unity, collective fight

Posted by Admin on November 27, 2009

UNLF calls for unity, collective fight-III
Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, November 25 2009: The ‘Naxalite Movement’ that began in 1967 led by the then Communist Party of India (ML) had undergone a tortuous path of factions and groupings before reuniting ultimately as the CPI (Maoist).

Now the Maoists have consolidated their mass base in seven States of mainland India which cover about 25 percent of the Indian landmass.

With the rapid expansion of the capitalist economy of India during the past 42 years, class contradictions have sharpened to the level of breaking out a social revolution.

Thus it would not be far fetched to observe that the Maoist revolution has taken firm roots among the exploited classes of India which has grown beyond the suppressive power of the feudal-bourgeois Indian state.

The Maoist revolution being based on the exploited peasantry and the proletariat has the force of 75 percent of the Indian population. Read the rest of this entry »

Irom Sharmila’s strike enters 10th year

Posted by Admin on November 5, 2009

iromsharmilastoryManipur is India’s most disturbed state today, with more than two dozen militant outfits at war with the Indian security forces. But there’s another war that the security forces wage her – .people’s confidence in them is at an all-time low with a series of deaths that seem to be fake encounters. The army has described these as counter-insurgency operations. Locals say that line is wearing thin.

Symbolizing what the people want is Irom Sharmila, whose hunger strike enters its tenth year on Monday. Her one point-agenda: stop the Armed Forces Special Act which gives the army extraordinary powers and immunity.

Sharmila began her struggle on November 2, 2000 after ten persons were gunned down by security forces at Malom in Imphal. Since last year, more women have joined her in a relay hunger strike.

Those who support Irom Sharmila have decided to celebrate her story of resistance in a week-long Festival of Hope and Justice in Imphal. Among them, noted author Mahashweta Devi, who says, “She’s fighting for human rights, we will try our level best to join her and force the Government of India to withdraw the forces …. What she has done hasn’t been done anywhere in the world. She’s fighting for truth. ”

The woman being honoured won’t be able to attend the festival. She is under arrest, locked in a hospital room, being force-fed on charges of attempted suicide. That’s how she has spent the last nine years. NDTV

Manipur: RPF claims Itam attack, tells public to stay away from SF

Posted by Admin on November 1, 2009

jan07Imphal, October 31 2009: Claiming responsibility for the October 29 attack on the Assam Rifles convoy near Itam thong (bridge), the proscribed RPF said the attack marks resumption of ‘urban guerilla warfare’ against adversary forces.

According to a statement issued by the RPF’s chief of Department of Publicity GM Changjou, the said attack at around 2.40 pm was carried out by a four-member special team of the PLA’s Auxiliary unit with Lt Col MS Bains of 10 Sector Assam Rifles as the intended target.

Regarding Lt Colonel MS Bains managing to escape unhurt, Changjou conceded the Assam Rifles officer switching vehicle before reaching the attack site is the only reason for his miraculous escape.

With cadres of the special team unleashing their fire-power mainly at the Bolero jeep which the Lt Col was supposed to ride the attackers had to withdraw soon after realising that Lt Colonel MS Bains was not in the targeted vehicle, he maintained while asserting that the next attack against the AR officer would be more vicious and precise.

On the injury sustained by one Irungbam Itamba (15), the statement alleged that the youngster was intentionally fired at by the AR men as security forces consider every Manipuri as enemies.

Changjou also opined that in case there was more casualties on the AR side many more civilian could have been murdered on the spot as vengeance by the remaining security personnel. Read the rest of this entry »

Human Rights film festival in solidarity with Irom Sharmila

Posted by Admin on October 16, 2009

About 140 organizations have given a call to initiate solidarity actions on the eve of the tenth year of the hunger fast by Sharmila Irom against the rule of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Manipur state.

Protests, one-day symbolic fasts, film festivals, posters, letters to the Chief Minister of Manipur and Prime Minister as well as solidarity poems by students in different parts are being planned in many places. The central idea behind the campaign is to support not just Sharmila Irom’s demand to repeal AFSPA in Manipur. Ultimately, there is a need to remove such repressive laws wherever they are in place, in the entire north east, Jammu and Kashmir, Chattisgarh, etc. We believe that collective action by all organizations who have come forward to support Sharmila Irom’s demand has the power to change the authoritarian character of the Indian state.

Many groups have expressed an interest in organizing film festivals on human rights in solidarity with Sharmila Irom during the period November 2-6, 2009. We have put together a package of relevant films which can be made available to any group that is interested in organizing such an effort. Read the rest of this entry »

Manipur: Aftershocks Of A Daylight Murder

Social activists and innocents are the latest targets in Manipur’s unending cycle of repression. DIVYA GUPTA reports

Pandora’s Box Sanjit’s killing created a public outcry but has also fuelled state repression in Manipur

EVER SINCE TEHELKA’S damning expose of 27- year-old Chongkham Sanjit’s fake encounter killing two months ago, Manipur has been bubbling over with fear and violence. Waves of demonstrations have rocked the state under the banner of “BT Road Agitation” – indicating the name of the road where the Manipur Police Commandos shot Sanjit dead, killed a pregnant passerby, Rabina Devi, and injured five others. Daily news reports pour in of more fake encounters “rocking” Manipur, jawans killed in an ambush, the government’s plans to set up more police stations, the opposition demanding President’s rule and protests “halting” academics and life in the state. Several militant and civil society organisations have demanded that Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh should resign. Violence on all sides continues unabated. Read the rest of this entry »

Imphal, Sept. 8: A truck driver who lay on the ground and escaped army bullets in Ukhrul last evening has contradicted the forces’ story of an “operation”, triggering yet another “fake encounter” protest in Manipur, this time by the Kuki community. Troops of 12 Maratha Light Infantry gunned down four Kuki Liberation Army cadres and a civilian truck driver at Mokot Chepu in the Litan area of Ukhrul and recovered six weapons around 6pm along Imphal-Ukhrul Road.

Kuki Liberation Army happens to be in a suspension of operation agreement with the security forces. The army handed over all the five bodies to Litan police station this morning, besides a huge cache of arms. An LMG with 10 rounds of ammunition, an M-16 rifle with nine rounds, an M-22 rifle with nine rounds, an AK-47 with 22 rounds, a G-3 rifle with 20 rounds, a carbine with 16 rounds and a grenade comprised the arms haul.

AMSU to boycott classes from today Against the killing spree unleashed by the Govt

Posted by Admin on September 9, 2009

Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, September 08, 2009: Against the alleged killing spree unleashed under the rule of Chief Minister Okram Ibobi, the All Manipur Students’ Union has decided to launch indefinite class boycott of schools all over the State from tomorrow.

A press release issued by the student body asserted that the situation has come to such a pass that any one can fall victim to a fake encounter, stray bullets, any time, anywhere. There have been several instances when innocent persons were killed right in front of their family. In other cases, many people picked up from their own homes/localities by security personnel have been branded UG cadres after killing them at some other places in fake encounters.

Many students have already fallen victims to such fake encounters and extra-judicial killings, it alleged. When death is hanging over the head of all the people including students, it has become a big question whether the student community should continue with their studies or join the people’s movement. Rather than waiting to be killed in fake encounters, the student community too will join the mass movement for a secure future.

Since O Ibobi assumed the office of Chief Minister in 2002, thousands of people have been killed in fake encounters, it alleged. The July 23 fake encounter was only the sparking point of the people’s fury. Instead of paying any heed to the people’s demand for his resignation, punishment of guilty commandos as well as police officers who tried to cover up the killings, unconditional release of the Apunba Lup activists, repeal of AFSPA etc, Chief Minister seemed more interested in recruitment of additional police forces.

By deploying commandos in both uniform and civilian fatigue at the schools, the Government has been forbidding students from taking out any form of democratic movement against the extra-judicial killings, the AMSU said.For all the fake encounters and extra-judicial killings perpetrated under the immunity guaranteed by AFSPA, Chief Minister Ibobi should be held responsible. Saying that it would be launching various democratic movements under the leadership of the Apunba, the student body called indefinite class boycott in schools all over the state from tomorrow.
