Explosions hit Maoist office in Kathmandu
Published: Thursday, 31 May, 2007, 01:40 AM Doha Time
KATHMANDU: A series of blasts hit the Maoist central office in Kathmandu, causing minor structural damage but no casualties, police said yesterday.
“Three improvised explosive devices exploded at the Maoist central office late on Tuesday night,” Superintendent of Police Dhak Bahadur Kari said. “The fourth device failed to go off.”

Police quoted witnesses as saying the explosive devices were thrown by unidentified people who fled after the blasts, which shattered the building’s windows.
Meanwhile, the Himalayan Times said an unidentified man claiming to be a member of a relatively new group, the Nepal Defence Army, had telephoned its offices and claimed responsibility for the attack.

“The caller claimed responsibility for the blast and vowed to continue such attacks,” the newspaper said. “He said the group supported continuation of the monarchy and acceptance of Hinduism as the official state religion.”

The blasts are the latest in a series of attacks carried out by the group, which has also targeted newspapers and political parties that it sees as supporting the Maoist cause and seeking to rid the country of its monarch.

During their 10-year insurgency, the Maoist former rebels carried out similar attacks, hitting government buildings and other targets at night and then melting away into the darkness.

Since laying down their arms and joining the government in April, Maoists have intensified their campaign to remove the king and declare the country a republic.
Analysts in the Nepalese capital said the blasts appeared to be designed more to send a warning to the Maoists, who until the beginning of 2006 were branded terrorists. – DPA

Iraqi Marxist Insurgent Group Declared

Masked Gunmen Vandalize Hakim Portraits in Kut

An unknown left-wing group calling itself the Iraqi Armed Revolutionary Resistance distributed leaflets in the Mid-Euphrates area around Najaf, Hilla and Karbala calling for “resistance against American, British and Zionist occupiers in order to liberate Iraq and form a free socialist, democratic alternative,” according to the Al-Badeel Al-Iraqi website.

The group, which described itself as a “movement of Iraqi Communists and Marxists experienced in armed struggle, leftist Iraqi nationalists, and their supporters,” claimed responsibility for an attack against U.S. troops at the Khan Al-Nus area between Najaf and Karbla on Sunday.

The leaflets, which carried a photo of Cuban Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, announced the launch of the resistance in the Mid-Euphrates and condemned the “puppet government, the so-called Council of Representatives, terrorist Salafis, militias, the Interior Ministry, Iraqi traitors who came on American tanks, the American and British mercenaries, contractors, and their servants from the South Lebanese Army.” Printed in both Arabic and English, the statement said car bombs and roadside bombs killing Iraqis are planted by the above groups to damage the reputation of Iraqi resistance groups.


Mexico: 67 years jail for leaders of Atenco-Uprising

Mexico: 67 years jail for leaders of Atenco-Uprising

Key leaders of the peasant struggle in San Salvador Atenco, Mexico state, have been sentenced to 67 years 6 months in prison, in a vicious act of class revenge. Atenco was stormed in May 2006 by thousands of Federal police, who killed two, raped dozens and injured many more. The conflict goes back to 2002 when the peasants of Atenco prevented the theft of their land to build a new Mexico City airport.

In a vicious act of class reprisal Ignacio del Valle Medina, Felipe Alvarez Hernández y Héctor Galindo Gochicua, leaders of the Peoples Front for the Defense of the Land in Atenco, were sentenced on Saturday 5 May to 67 years 6 months jail each for the events in Atenco in early May 2006. In a timing which is undoubtedly cynical and symbolic, the court chose the first anniversary of a mass meeting in Atenco at which subcommandante Marcos denounced the brutalisation of Atenco’s citizens.

That brutalisation started with clashes on Wednesday May 3 2006, when more than 200 people were arrested and two killed, as police brutally prevented flower sellers from Atenco setting up stalls on the building site which is to become a new Wal- Mart shopping mall.

Rosario Ibarra de Piedra, chair of the Mexican Senate’s Human Rights Commission denounced the sentences as a “terrible vengence, which has the objective of silencing the demand of the people for liberty and justice”.

Subcommandante Marcos of the EZLN led a protest convoy of 50 vehicles which immediately headed for the prison where the three are held, as soon as the sentences were known on Saturday.

Pictures of the atenco-uprising

These vicious sentences come in the wake of the fraudulent election last summer when right-wing candidate Felipe Calderon was put into power, on the back of panic in the Mexican ruling class (and the US government) that the election of PRD candidate Manule Lopez Obrador might lead to Mexico linking up with Bolivia and Venezuela, opening a new front of left wing struggle in Latin America.

It also comes in a climate of growing repression aimed at the popular movements – massive repression against the rebellion in Oaxaca in which dozens appear to have been killed, many are missing and many more are being held as political prisoners.

The police and military are stepping up their repression of the Zapatistas’ Other Campaign. The provocation in San Salvador Atenco in May 2006 was directly linked to the participation of the town’s people in the Other Campaign and the visit of Marcos; in addition it was an attempt at revenge for the successful local struggle in 2002 that prevented the local peasants’ land being seized for a new Mexico City airport.

Repression in growing apace in Mexico. Under previous president Vicente Fox and now Felipe Calderon, both of the neoliberal PAN party, the number of political prisoners has gown to over 400. Deaths in social protests are becoming much more common too – the highest level since the military repression against the Party of the Poor in Guerrero state in the early 1970s. This is the consequence of the neoliberalisation of Mexico since the late 1980s. Social inequality is growing rapidly – Mexico now has some of the richest people in the world and many of the poorest, especially in the countryside. The Mexican bourgeoisie, dripping in narco super-profits and the profits from agribusiness and the maquiladora assembly plants, has responded with extreme violence to the explosion of social struggles.

In 2006 the people of Atenco were viciously attacked by paramilitary police, dozens of women were raped, two people were killed, dozens of houses wrecked, money stolen and dozens severely wounded. Now it is the victims who suffer what are in effect life sentences. A huge international campaign for the release of all Mexican political prisoners is needed.


Pope assails capitalism, Marxism in address to Latin American bishops

Pope assails capitalism, Marxism in address to Latin American bishops

APARECIDA, Brazil (AP) – Pope Benedict on Sunday blamed both Marxism and unbridled capitalism for Latin America’s problems, urging bishops to mould a new generation of Roman Catholic leaders in politics to reverse the church’s declining influence in the region.

Before boarding a plane for Rome at the end of a five-day trip to the most populous Roman Catholic country in the world, Benedict also warned legalized contraception and abortion in Latin America threaten “the future of the peoples” and said the historic Roman Catholic identity of the region is under assault.

Like his predecessor Pope John Paul II, Benedict criticized capitalism’s negative effects, as well as the Marxist influences that have motivated some grass-roots Roman Catholic activists.

“The Marxist system, where it found its way into government, not only left a sad heritage of economic and ecological destruction but also a painful destruction of the human spirit,” he said in his opening address at a two-week bishops’ conference in Brazil’s holiest shrine city aimed at re-energizing the church’s influence in Latin America.

Benedict said Latin American native people had been “silently longing” to become Christians when Spanish and Portuguese conquerors took over their lands centuries ago, though many were enslaved and killed.

“In effect, the proclamation of Jesus and of his Gospel did not at any point involve an alienation of the pre-Columbus cultures, nor was it the imposition of a foreign culture,” he said.

He also warned of unfettered capitalism and globalization, blamed by many in Latin America for a deep divide between the rich and poor. The Pope said it could give “rise to a worrying degradation of personal dignity through drugs, alcohol and deceptive illusions of happiness.”

Benedict, speaking in Spanish and Portuguese to the bishops, also said Latin America needs more dedicated Catholics in leadership positions in politics, the media and at universities. And he said the church’s leaders must halt a trend that has seen millions of Catholics turn into born-again Protestants or simply stop going to church.

While Brazil is home to more than 120 million of the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics, the census shows that people calling themselves Catholics fell to 74 per cent in 2000 from 89 per cent in 1980. Those calling themselves evangelical Protestants rose to 15 per cent from seven.

“It is true that one can detect a certain weakening of Christian life in society overall,” Benedict said, blaming secularism, hedonism and proselytizers for other sects.

In Aparecida and at events earlier this week in Sao Paulo that attracted more than one million people, Benedict roundly denounced immorality in a bid to counter the rising tide of Latin Americans flouting the church’s prohibition on premarital sex and divorce.

Now, he said, the bishops must convince Catholics from all walks of life “to bring the light of the Gospel into public life, into culture, economics and politics.”

Benedict did not name any countries in his criticism of capitalism and Marxism, but Latin America has become deeply divided in recent years amid a sharp political tilt to the left – with the election of leftist leaders in Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua and the overwhelming re-election in Venezuela of President Hugo Chavez, an avowed socialist.

Other countries, such as Brazil, have centre-left leaders who have come under heavy criticism for embracing free-market economic policies that have widened the rift between rich and poor.

Before addressing the bishops, Benedict said mass before 150,000 faithful in front of the mammoth basilica of Aparecida, home to the nation’s patron saint, a black Virgin Mary. As hundreds of choir members sang hymns and people waved flags from all over South America, the Pope called the region the “continent of hope” and said the bishops must be “courageous and effective missionaries” to ensure the strength of the church.

The 80-year-old Pope also said the church needs to work harder to get its message across on the Internet,
radio and television – methods used effectively by Protestant congregations attracting legions of followers, particularly in the vast slums ringing Brazil’s largest cities.

Russia accused of launching first massive cyberstrike against Estonia

May 31, 2007

The Kremlin has a new weapon in its war on real or imagined enemies, from opponents at home to foreign revolutionaries.

Newsweek International

May 28, 2007 issue – The attacks came in waves, with military precision. Hours after Estonia removed a World War II statue of a Soviet soldier from downtown Tallinn last month, virtual war broke out. News agencies, banks and government offices were targeted in a blitzkrieg of spam—an onslaught of billions of e-mails, many apparently generated in Russia, that brought down servers and jammed bandwidths to bursting. As “eTonia’s” famous digital-based free markets and democracy buckled under the strain, top NATO Internet security experts last week rushed to construct defenses against the world’s first massive cyberstrike by a superpower on a tiny and almost defenseless neighbor.
Unquestioning Loyalty: ‘The idea was to create an ideology based on a total devotion to the president and his course,’ says Sergei Markov, a Kremlin-connected ideologue who helped found Nashi in 2004

In Moscow, the attacks took a decidedly less modern cast. Activists from a Kremlin-created youth movement called Nashi stormed a press conference by Estonia’s ambassador, retreating only after the diplomat’s bodyguards sprayed them with Mace. Others blocked the birch-lined highway from Russia to Estonia with barriers and a large sign reading YOU ARE DRIVING TOWARD FASCIST ESTONIA. Russian President Vladimir Putin, meanwhile, commemorated the Soviet victory over Nazism with a massive military parade and dark warnings of “new threats” to world security, “as during the time of the Third Reich.”

The historical echoes are unsettling. Once again the Kremlin is on the offensive. And the shock troops in its war against Russia’s enemies, real or imagined, is a new generation of impassioned young militants—the Communist Youth League, if you will, of Putin’s Russia. They have names like Nashi, “Ours,” or the Young Guard and Walking Together. Highly disciplined and lavishly sponsored by the Kremlin, these young ideologues came from nowhere a few years ago to number more than 100,000—a bona fide private army fanatically loyal to one man, the president, that denounces political opposition groups as traitors and fascists, demonizes foreign enemies from Estonia to Georgia to Poland and dedicates itself to the glorification of the Soviet Union and Russian power. “We need to make Russia strong again,” says Nikolai Panchenko, a Nashi “commissar,” or leader. (Yes, the old nomenclature has returned.) “It is time to put an end to America being the strongest and most influential empire. We won’t let America make Russia another one of its colonies.”

Back in Russia’s communist heyday, the Soviet youth group, Komsomol, sprang from the ruling party’s obsession with “shaping the political consciousness” of a young generation. And so it is today. The Kremlin’s drive to win—or control—the hearts and minds of Russia’s youth took root in the aftermath of popular revolutions in Ukraine, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan in 2003-05. Realistically or not, many in the Kremlin worry that Russia might somehow be next. “The crucial role that young people played in those revolutions made us realize that something should be done,” says Sergei Markov, a Kremlin-connected ideologue who helped found Nashi in 2004. “The plan was simple,” he explains. “We launched Nashi in towns close to Moscow so that activists could arrive overnight on Red Square, if needed. The idea was to create an ideology based on a total devotion to the president and his course.”

With parliamentary and presidential elections coming up, Nashi and its sibling movements have an obvious target—anyone who presumes to challenge Putin and his ruling clique for power. Who might they be? Nashi recently issued a leaflet identifying them. This “Gallery of Traitors,” appearing in print and online, featured twisted portraits of such opposition leaders as former prime minister Mikhail Kasyanov and radical writer Eduard Limonov. They were declared enemies of the people, scheming to subvert their nation and turn it over to foreign spies and conspirators. Among them, too, are exiled Yeltsin-era oligarch Boris Berezovsky and Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former billionaire brought down after he began funding opposition to Putin in 2004.

Band of Brothers: Nashi public squads in Moscow help police

Last month Nashi staged its boldest and most organized mass rally yet. Some 15,000 volunteers donned red jackets, with putin’s communicators emblazoned on the back, and spread out across Moscow distributing brochures and 10,000 specially made SIM cards for mobile phones. The cards allowed users to send text messages to the Kremlin—to be answered promptly by Nashi volunteers. Recipients were also instructed to use the cards to report any signs of an incipient Orange revolution. In that event, the cards would instantly relay text-message instructions on what to do and where to rally. “We explained to Muscovites that we should all be prepared for the pro-Western revolution, funded by America,” says Nashi activist Tatyana Matiash, 22. “People must know what to do to save their motherland in case their radio and TV stop working.”

Not to be outdone by Nashi, the Chelyabinsk chapter of the Young Guards recently staged a training session in how to combat a possible Orange revolution in their city. A hundred volunteers with orange bandannas pretended to storm the local television station; Young Guards mobilized to defend it. The day ended with Guards wielding baseball bats to smash up an “Orange” tent camp, much like that erected on Maidan Square in Kiev two years ago. Last week in Sosnovy Bor, 120 kilometers from St. Petersburg on the Estonian border, Nashi volunteers toured village schools with a film entitled “Lessons in Courage.” The movie opened with images of a vast Nashi meeting of youths in identical white T shirts, red stars on their chests, and continued with shots of Putin juxtaposed against photos of a noble-looking wolf, followed by images of rats symbolizing corrupt government bureaucrats. “Putin is a lonely wolf surrounded by rats,” says Panchenko to the schoolchildren. “Russia has become too corrupt—it is time to change things, time for stronger leaders, like us.”

The paramilitary flavor is unmistakable. Every summer, Nashi runs recruiting camps all across Russia. New members watch propaganda films and receive basic military-style training, says Nashi boss Vasily Yakimenko. They are lectured by top bureaucrats and politicians, including Deputy Defense Minister Yury Baluyevsky and the thuggish Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov—honored as a “Young Politician of the Year” at last year’s Nashi congress. Activists who sign up a hundred new members qualify for promotion to commissar, so long as they pass a grueling three-day series of paramilitary assault courses and physical tests. “We had to demonstrate physical strength, endurance and team leadership,” recalls Leonid Kurza, 23, the leader of the St. Petersburg chapter of Nashi, inducted last winter. Nashi also runs volunteer police troops, who wear black uniforms and, according to the movement’s press service, “help police to patrol streets—and if necessary beat hooligans.”

Earlier this month Nashi’s army staged a paramilitary exercise at a boot camp near Podolsk, 25 kilometers outside Moscow. About 50 activists in military fatigues marched in formation and ran obstacle courses. They practiced field-stripping Kalashnikov rifles and Makarov pistols, followed by an hour of target shooting. Less militaristic members can join a Nashi corps called SplaMeran abbreviation of “unification activities”—which offers psychology courses for team leaders. “We learned gestalt therapy and different methods of helping people relax and stay cheerful in the most severe conditions,” says Matiash, a psychology student. “The enemy is using manipulation and provocations against us. We need to be ready to fight, shoot if we need to, to defend the principles of our current government.”

Learning a Skill: Participants in Nashi learn how to use weapons, means of chemical protection and take physical exercises at a children’s camp outside Moscow
Veteran dissident Valeria Novodvorskaya likens Nashi to “a new Putin-jugend” modeled on the Hitler Youth. That’s an overstatement. Nashi and other groups may be fanatically loyal to Putin, but their rhetoric and methods are more like a sinister parody of democracy movements in Ukraine and elsewhere. Much of their activity is orchestrated by Vladislav Surkov, Putin’s right-hand man for political and media issues, who meets regularly with the groups’ leaders to organize propaganda and political campaigns. The Kremlin is lavish with its funding, too, says analyst Ilya Ponamarov of the Institute of Globalization Studies, both in direct cash contributions and encouraging state-owned businesses to sponsor programs. The institute estimates that the “Putin’s Communicators” campaign alone cost $220 million. And like the old Komsomol, the perks of membership are considerable. Members enjoy free admission to various schools of management, where they study government, business administration or public relations. They go on to allocated internships in top state enterprises such as Gazprom, Rosneft, state-owned television stations and even the Kremlin.

Western leaders are growing increasingly alarmed at Russia’s new direction. They have watched as it has retreated farther and farther from democracy under Putin’s rule. They have been dismayed at the spectacle of thousands of riot police beating down small numbers of protesters mustered by the country’s increasingly weakened political opposition parties. Last week U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was in Moscow to take the temperature of relations, which have reached close to freezing. In his Victory Day speech Putin appeared to compare America to Nazi Germany, warning of the threats from countries with “contempt for human life and the same claims [as the Nazis] of exceptionality and diktat in the world.” Putin has also vehemently denounced U.S. plans to station ABM missiles in Eastern Europe. “Everyone is frankly scared of the way which Russia is going, but no one knows what to do about it,” says one European diplomat in Moscow, not authorized to speak on the record. With the Kremlin aggressively pursuing its enemies at home and abroad, and grooming a militant youth movement as de facto enforcers of its nationalist vision, Russia’s neighbors are wondering with growing concern which of them could be next.

Quote of the Year on Khaki Rakshasas

May 30, 2007

A potrait of a Khaki Rakshas ( A term conferred on the Indian Police Force
by the people of India.It means the demons in Khaki coloured clothing)

Today we feel these cops are terrorists inside our colonies. Now I am worried they may start harassing us.An ordinary Indian citizen


These are not the words of a naxalite or a maoist sympathiser but those of
an ordinary citizen from India.She echoes the sentiments of millions of
Indians who have finally began to realize who the
real terrorists are in this country.

Chhattisgarh Terror Police exhibiting their natural behaviour

May 30, 2007

Khakhi Rakshashas exhibiting their natural behaviour

One Khaki Rakshas kicks the old adivasi in his face while another pulls his
hair , the other two Rakshashas watch with amusement,
while the old man breaks down into tears.

This type of behaviour can been seen all over Chhattisgarh and
more so in Bastar where msotly non-adivasi police personnel rape,
murder and loot the adivasi’s at will. Most adivasi’s
are considered sub-humans by caste hindus who now rule Chhattisgarh.

Chhattisgarh: Dr.Ilina is the latest target

May 30, 2007

After Dr Binayak Sen and Rajendra Sail now the Chhattisgarh Terror
Police is after Dr Ilina Sen..

Chhattisgarh: Dr.Ilina is the latest target

We invites all to join the huge rally protest of raipur on 31st. This will be a strong message to the repressive and undemoctaric state. . We hope you are already preparing to reach Raipur to join the voices of dissent.

Venue : KHALSA SCHOOL, near Pandri Bus stand, Pandri Accommodation: Pastoral Centre, near Holy Cross School, Baron Bazar Contact Person : Adv. Sudha Bhardwaj (mobile: 099266-03877)

Another major concern is about the threat of Dr. Ilina Sen getting arrested. This news is being spread by the CG police themselves and hence also the CG local press. Sources close to police confirm that they do plan to arrest her on the grounds of being owner of the house from where “incriminating evidence” was found.

This is ridiculous and should get on the nerves of anyone who has any allegiance to human rights or civil liberties. Friends, it is high-time we show the CG government that lawlessness and absolute human rights violations will not be tolerated by people. We hope the 31st programme becomes a common ground of this declaration.

From Delhi, we have friends including Shri. Achin vanaik (CNDP), Prof. Kamal Chenoy (JNU), Shri. Ashok Vajpayee, Shri Anil Choudhury (President, INSAF), Shri. J John (Chief Editor, Labour File) and Shri. Viraj Pattnaik (Centre for Equity Studies) among others who plan to be at the programme on the 31st at Raipur…

On Behalf of Delhi Solidarity Group and Sangharsh 2007, Sridevi Panikkar (09868099304) and Shreeprakash (09871880686) will be in Raipur to help with the coordination required… We are yet to get the names from PUCL, PUDR and MFC, as to who will be going…

However, the ground situation in Chhattisgarh continues to be extremely bad with more and more people’s movements and activists being targeted. Radheshyam Sharma is still in jail, but atleast he has ended his hunger strike and is not getting tortured compared to Piyush Guha or some others… Another issue is lack of pro-active legal support that is required from legal experts on HR issues and draconian legislations…

In Solidarity,
Vijayan MJ

Nine policemen killed in landmine blasts

Raipur, May. 28 (PTI): Nine policemen were killed when members of the banned naxal outfit CPI(Maoists) triggered a series of landmine blasts targeting a 12-member police party in Bastar district of Chattisgarh, police said today.

The maoists carried out two dozen blasts this evening when the motorcycle-borne policemen during an anti-naxal operations were passing through the Kudur area, about 435 capital from here.

Police said three cops who survived the attack returned to the Mardapal police station, 22 km from the scene of the attack, and informed the station incharge about the incident.

The maoists also looted weapons belonging to the policemen, police said.

Naxalites plan October rally in Delhi

Naxalites plan October rally in Delhi

Statesman News Service
NEW DELHI, May 28: Naxalite groups are planning a massive show of strength in the Capital in October.

The decision to hold a rally in Delhi was taken in March when the top brass of various Naxalite organisations met to plan the “non-violent” campaign. Though the rally has been called to protest upcoming special economic zones on agriculture land all over the country, its basic agenda is to get media attention and to display its strength at the national level. Documents seized by security forces during various raids in Jharkhand and Chattisgah revealed the three-tier strategy of Naxalite groups. “First they will launch/ intensify their operations in areas where SEZs are coming up through their frontal organisations. These organisations will recruit locals for their violent activities,” said a senior official of a security agency which seized the incriminating documents.

“Subsequently, the Naxalite groups will set up an overground workers’ network in the Hindi belt, mainly Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Uttaranchal so that they can hit the headlines in Delhi,” the official said. Thirdly and most important, they will make their presence felt in the Capital in a big way in October.
“The preparations for the October rally have begun in a big way with Naxalite groups giving district commanders six months to plan it,” the official said.


History of Naxalism according to HT

May 29, 2007

History of Naxalism according to Hindustan Times

Telangana Struggle: By July 1948, 2,500 villages in the south were organised into ‘communes’ as part of a peasant movement which came to be known as Telangana Struggle. Simultaneously the famous Andhra Thesis for the first time demanded that ‘Indian revolution’ follow the Chinese path of protracted people’s war. In June 1948, a leftist ideological document ‘Andhra Letter’ laid down a revolutionary strategy based on Mao Tsetung’s New Democracy.

CPM splits from united CPI and decides to participate in elections, postponing armed struggle over revolutionary policies to a day when revolutionary situation prevailed in the country.

Communist leader Charu Majumdar wrote various articles based on Marx-Lenin-Mao thought during the period, which later came to be known as ‘Historic Eight Documents’ and formed the basis of naxalite movement.
· First civil liberties organisation was formed with Telugu poet Sri Sri as president following mass arrests of communists during Indo-China war.

CPM participates in polls and forms a coalition United Front government in West Bengal with Bangla Congress. This leads to schism in the party with younger cadres, including the “visionary” Charu Majumdar, accusing CPM of betraying the revolution.

Naxalbari Uprising (25th May): The rebel cadres led by Charu Majumdar launch a peasants’ uprising at Naxalbari in Darjeeling district of West Bengal after a tribal youth, who had a judicial order to plough his land, was attacked by “goons” of local landlords on March 2. Tribals retaliated and started forcefully capturing back their lands. The CPI (M)-led United Front government cracked down on the uprising and in 72 days of the “rebellion” a police sub-inspector and nine tribals were killed. The Congress govt at the Centre supported the crackdown. The incident echoed throughout India and naxalism was born.

• The ideology of naxalism soon assumed larger dimension and entire state units of CPI (M) in Uttar Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir and some sections in Bihar and Andhra Pradesh joined the struggle.

July-Nov: Revolutionary communist organs ‘Liberation’and ‘Deshbrati’ (Bengali) besides ‘Lokyudh’ (Hindi) were started.
Nov 12-13: Comrades from Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka, Orissa and West Bengal met and set up All India Coordination Committee of Revolutionaries (AICCR) in the CPI (M).


May 14: AICCR renamed All India Coordination Committee of Communist Revolutionaries (AICCCR) with Comrade S Roy Chowdhury as its convenor. The renamed body decides to boycott elections. Within AICCCR certain fundamental differences lead to the exclusion of a section of Andhra comrades led by Comrade T Nagi Reddy.


April 22: As per the AICCCR’s February decision, a new party CPI (ML) was launched on the birth anniversary of Lenin. Charu Majumdar was elected as the Secretary of Central Organising Committee. AICCR dissolved itself.

Chhattisgarh activists face crackdown

May 29, 2007
Chhattisgarh activists face crackdown

We are watched constantly, our every move is questioned.

– Mohammed Sahul Hamid, journalist, Dandakaranya Samachar

Chhattisgarh activists face crackdown

Another civil rights activist, Rajendra Sial, has been arrested by police in Chhattisgarh. In the battle against insurgency what has been destroyed is a middle ground between the police and the naxals.

A few days ago, social activist Dr Binayak Sen was taken to jail under the Chhattisgarh Special Public Security Act 2005 for his alleged links with Naxalites.

The arrests perhaps indicate the beginning of things to come. Anyone who differs with the state is seen as a Maoist supporter, to say the least. Any opposition to the government’s point of view, it would seem, is unwelcome.

”I know Binayak Sen for the last 20 years. There is no room for debate or dissention and this is a very serious thing,” said Harsh Mandar, former IAS officer.

No middle gorund

The crunching of the middle ground between the state government and the Maoists began last year when the Public Security Act was passed.

The Act many argue has too many loopholes.

Although it prescribes a jail term up to seven years for committing an unlawful activity, the term ‘unlawful activity’ is not precisely defined.

Under the Act, a person is liable for punishment even if he were a member of an organisation, participated in its meetings or received contributions on its behalf before the organisation was declared unlawful.

”Last year a girl in 12th standard was arrested for being a Maoist along with her an electrician, a doctor whose prescription was found on a Maoist and Dr Sen,” said Rajendra Sial, State General Secretary, PUCL.

Sial is now behind the bars. He was arrested last week for contempt of court in a different case.

But the crackdown in Chhattisgarh is not limited against those who don’t agree with the government’s policy on Naxalites. Even many journalists are under the government’s scanner.

”We are watched constantly, our every move is questioned,” said Mohammed Sahul Hamid, journalist, Dandakaranya Samachar.

If the state-supported anti-Naxal movement called Salwa Judam has divided the Adivasi community along the middle, the crackdown to deal with growing Naxal influence completes the polarisation process.

”Those in uniform always seek stronger laws to crack down on people it is up to the state and its maturity to deal with such a thing,” said Sushil Kumar, Editor, Chattisgarh Daily.

Government stand

But the government defends itself and claims that such laws are not limited to Chhattisgarh.

”Other states too have such acts. This act is needed and those who are suspected to have links will be prosecuted under the law,” said Ram Vichar Netam, Home Minister, Chhattisgarh.

The state claims such laws are need to deal with Moaist but its use or more so its misuse, give a feeling that either it is the state’s way or just the high way.


Narco tests on alleged Naxal turns out to be flop

Narco tests on alleged Naxal turns out to be flop
The narco-analysis tests carried out on alleged Naxalite Arun Ferreira, a Bandra resident who was arrested along with three others in Nagpur on May 8, at Kalina Forensic Science Laboratory have failed to yield effective results. This, even as the senior Naxalite cadre contradicted himself occasionally, said the police.

The police alleged that the tests did not throw up “clinching” results as no police officer was allowed in during the interrogation — something that marred the prospects of an “interactive exchange” between the police and the suspect.

According to sources, the police had prepared a pointed set of questions to be hurled at Ferreira during the narco-analysis tests. The question set was designed to make him admit or deny his recent involvement in the overall Naxalite-Maoist scheme of things across central India.

“But although Ferreira was found to glaringly contradict himself on a couple of occasions, there was no immediate reactive response (in terms of artfully framed questions) from the investigating officers (making the suspect speak his mind out) geared to elicit real information out of him,” said a senior anti-Naxalite unit officer who spoke to DNA on conditions of anonymity.

“We approached the director of the forensic science laboratory on the matter but the authorities chose to perform brain-mapping and polygraph tests on Ferreira instead,” the officer added.


Naxalite penetrate Rajasthan too: Jaiswal

Naxalite penetrate Rajasthan too: Jaiswal
From our ANI Correspondent

Jaipur, May 28: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Sriprakash Jaiswal today set alarm bells ringing by stating that naxals have spread to Rajasthan’s tribal areas also.

According to intelligence reports, Udaipur and other areas of Rajasthan have Naxalite presence.

He also said that Naxal groups are holding meeting and they have started working in tribal belts, especially in Dungapur, Banswara and Udaipur districts.

The State Government has been alerted about the development.

“We have alerted the State Government to be prepared to meet the danger,” Jaiswal said.

Coming down heavily on the Bharatiya Janata Party Government of Rajasthan, he accused it for not utilising the funds provided by the Centre for police modernisation.

He also said that the Central Government is taking all steps for the deportation of illegal Bangladeshi migrants in the state.

Commenting on the Supreme Court’s order on new police act, Jaiswal said the Centre is preparing a new police act and it will be upto the State Governments to adopt it.

Rebels kill 3 soldiers after blasting tower

COMMUNIST rebels blew up a cellphone transmission tower and killed three soldiers but suffered a casualty in a daylong gunfight in Baleno town, Masbate, an Army spokesman said yesterday.

Government troops were chasing rebels suspected of bombing a communications tower on the island province when they came under attack on Sunday, regional spokesman Lt. Col. Rhoderick Parayno said.

He said the outnumbered troops battled the New People’s Army guerrillas for several hours, but failed to hold their positions. By the time reinforcements arrived, the rebels had advanced, killing three soldiers and wounding two others, Parayno said in a statement.

After the attacks, the Southern Luzon commander, Lt. Gen. Alexander Yano, ordered the military to intensify counterinsurgency operations, Parayno said.

“The guerrillas withdrew toward the northwest carrying their casualties,” he said.

Reports reaching Camp Gen. Siemon Ola said the three soldiers killed were all members of the Ninth Infantry Division based in Masbate, and that the slain rebel remained unidentified.

In other violence, one soldier was killed and three were wounded in a clash with rebels in nearby Camarines Norte on Friday, police reported.

Also in the south, four suspected rebels fatally shot a former government militiaman in Sorsogon, and in neighboring Albay, six guerrillas shot to death a man they accused of being a military informer on Saturday, police said.

The rebels have been fighting for 38 years in Asia’s longest Maoist insurgency. The guerrillas, who claim to have a presence in 71 out of the Philippines’ 81 provinces, have recently stepped up attacks, prompting President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to order security forces to cut the 7,000-strong guerrillas force in half by 2010.

The rebels walked away from Norwegian-brokered peace talks in 2004 after accusing the government of instigating their inclusion on United States and European lists of terrorist groups. AP with Arlie Calalo and Mar Arguelles

A comprehensive but incomplete list of M-L and MLM groups from around the world.

May 28, 2007

While trawling through the net I came across this interesting resource
collected by an individual of official/unofficial links to Marsist-Leninist
and Maoist groups from around the world

It is comprehensive but incomplete and some links are defunct

While you may be aware of many of them, the majority of them
seem new to me.

However one cannot ascertain if all the organizations
are genuine or fronts set up vested interests.
