Communist Party of India (Maoist)
Press Release: 3rd May 2007
Condemn the continuing police attacks on the Maoist forces in Haryana!
Build a massive movement to fight back the multi-pronged offensive of the reactionary Indian ruling classes!!
Unnerved by reports of the successful completion of the Congress by the Maoists and the resistance by the people in several parts of the country led by the Maoists, the Indian ruling classes had stepped up their offensive on the Maoist revolutionaries and their supporters countrywide. The continuing arrests of revolutionary activists in Haryana is part of this countrywide multi-pronged offensive unleashed by the Indian ruling classes in collusion with the imperialists, particularly the US imperialists.
Today the people at large are opposing the treacherous plan of the traitors ruling our country to forcibly acquire prime agricultural lands of the peasants and giving them away to the big business houses, imperialist MNCs and other mafia gangs in the name of setting up SEZs. They are opposing the creation of hundreds of neo-colonial enclaves in the country—private states within the state similar to the old princely states—where the laws of the land do not apply and the big corporate houses and the imperialists can rule at their own sweet will. Huge so-called development projects initiated by the Central and various state governments are displacing lakhs of people from their homes and hearths. The CPI(Maoist) had openly declared that it will oppose this treacherous plan of the SEZs and the massive displacement of people tooth and nail and has been mobilising the masses against these. The living conditions of the Indian people are worsening day by day due to the pro-imperialist and anti-people policies of globalization, liberalization and privatization pursued by the Central and state governments whichever Party is in power. There is no other option before the people than to take up a life-and-death battle against these anti-people policies as the struggles in Kalinga Nagar Nadigram, Singur etc show.
It is in such a backdrop that the attacks on the Maoist and other democratic forces have been growing by the day. The aim of the ruling classes is to make the people leaderless by arresting or eliminating the Maoists and other democratic forces. While protecting the reactionary decadent feudal forces in the state the Haryana government is hell-bent on setting up several SEZs in the state by selling off the land and resources and granting huge concessions to the big business houses and the MNCs. In order to accomplish this it had unleashed a brutal terror campaign on all fighting forces. It had arrested five comrades last fortnight and is continuing the arrests and harassment of activists and supporters of the revolutionary movement ever since.
We call upon all democratic forces and people at large to oppose these attacks on the Maoists and all those fighting for the rights of the people, fight for their unconditional release, and to unite to build a mass democratic movement against growing state terror, SEZs, displacement of the people and the anti-people policies of the government.
