Ajith released – we await confirm – PCm Italy declaration

Konnath Muraleedharan, nom de guerre Ajith, leader of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), in prison since 2015 along with comrade Ismail Hamza, and for all political prisoners in India.

Ajith was captured while he was under care for complicated heart diseases.
Since his capture, calls have multiplied in the world to defend his health and obtain his release. Along with revolutionaries of every continent, many human rights organizations and groups for the defense of and political prisoners joined such calls as well as and world-renowned personalities of cultural and social life.
On February 25th, the High Court of Mumbay granted bail for hum, but suspended this decision, to give his persecutors time to prepare the appeal.
Comrade Ajith was jailed for imputation related to the infamous UAPA, a draconian law whose the most consistent democratic sectors have been demanding repeal for years.
The only crime committed by comrade Ajith is to have devoted his whole life to the tireless struggle against oppression. Class oppression, caste oppression, gender oppression, national oppression, against the imperialist oppression that generates them all and for the revolution and social justice.
Yes! Comrade Ajith did all this, he dedicated his life to the relentless struggle against the system that exploits, oppresses, crushes and sucks the blood of hundreds of millions of damned on the earth!
Comrade Ajith is a great internationalist who has always worked to unite the communists of the whole world in a single world organization, first by engaging in the struggle to raise the unity and ideological and political line of the RIM, then, after its collapse, continuously striving for a second step, to give the world proletariat a new international organization based on MLM and the struggle against revisionist positions that had liquidated the MRI.
 
Comrade Ajith worked for the unity of the proletarians of the imperialist countries with the oppressed peoples in the countries oppressed by imperialism, against any equivocal position of “imperialist internationalism”, or “Third Worldism”, giving an important contribution with his theoretical work with which analyzed in depth the reality of classes, castes, class sectors in a sub-continent such as India, but also by turning its attention to the struggles of the world proletariat and to the analysis of contemporary trends of the imperialist system, states and governments.
Throughout his life Comrade Ajith worked for the unity of the communists in India in a single party, since the end of the 80s, when he opposes, resists and finally defeats the opportunist line prevailing in the leadership of his own party, until the successful conclusion, in 2014, of the merger process of the PCI (ML) [Naxalbari] of which he was secretary with the PCI (Maoist). Ajith’s work gave an important contribution both practical terms, to advance and extend of the people’s war, as well in theory and ideology, to develop the strategy and tactics that will lead the people’s war to victory.
 
Comrade Ajith has always worked against the tendency to imperialist war, in support of liberation struggles and proletarian struggles against fascism and imperialism, both in the oppressed countries and in the imperialist countries, always pointing out precisely who are the true and false friends of these struggles and on which line we have to delimit our field.
Comrade Ajith is a great Marxist-Leninist-Maoist theorist who has always fought revisionism, opportunism and child extremism in the communist movement around the world. Exemplary are his criticism of Avakianism and the acute analysis of the process that interrupted the revolution in Nepal, and the ground for revisionist degeneration.
Comrade Ajith has always strongly supported, since the very beginning, the constitution and construction of the Communist Party in Italy and us Italian Maoists. He never made us miss his support and precious indications.
Freedom for  Ajith and all political prisoners in India!
Long live people’s war
Long live proletarian internationalism
Long live the world proletarian revolution
Laal salam!

India news – Ajith released from Pune jail

India news – Ajith released from Pune jail

[]https://maoistroad.blogspot.com/2019/07/india-news-ajith-released-from-pune-jail.html
Pune: Alleged Maoist sympathiser Konnath Muralidharan (Comrade Ajith), arrested near Pune in 2015, walked out of the Yerawada central jail here on Tuesday –– two months after the Supreme Court dismissed the Maharashtra government’s plea challenging the bail granted to him by the Bombay High Court in February.
Muralidharan’s release was held up owing to a verification process as the person who furnished a solvent surety on his behalf hailed from Kerala. The Pune court had sent the relevant documents to Kerala for confirming veracity of the same.
His lawyer Rahul Deshmukh told TOI, “Muralidharan was released around 5.30pm on Tuesday from the Yerawada jail after all bail formalities, including verification of his solvent surety, were completed. He executed the bail bond and other relevant papers.”
The Pune unit of the state anti-terrorism squad (ATS) had arrested Muralidharan and one of his aides from their hideout at Talegaon near Pune on May 8, 2015. The ATS then claimed to have seized objectionable material of the banned CPI (Maoist) organization, a forged PAN card, a merger declaration of the CPI (Maoist) and the CPI (Maoist/Leninist) Naxalbari and various electronic devices.
A special UAPA court in Pune had rejected his bail plea in September 2016.ource: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/kochi/maoist-sympathiser-released-from-pune-jail/articleshow/70353220.cms

Nepalese Reactionary government banned the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov)

Nepalese Reactionary government banned the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov)

MAOIST_REVOLUTION@yahoogroups.com

Dear comrades,

we would like to draw your kind attention towards the recent ban imposed by the current Government of Nepal ( March 12, 2019)
against the Communist Party of Nepal (Led by comrade “Netra Bikram Chand – Biplov”).

This move of current pseudo communist Nepal government dangerously synchronizes with the historical social fascist acts against the fundamental human/political rights and righteous people’s movement. Hundreds of party sympathizer and supporters, party members and leaders are being systematically arrested and tortured across the country. Fabricated fake legal cases are being manufactured by the state agencies against the detained individuals. Further, cadres from sister organizations (such as Students wing, Teachers wing, Workers wing) politically supporting the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov) are also equally terrorized by the state agencies. This political ban and ongoing systematically organized state sponsored horror simply violets all fundamental sociopolitical rights of any human being.

In this regard, we will highly appreciate if your party can spare few minutes to critically evaluate the recent political situation of Nepal.

We sincerely expect to receive your support and solidarity in the struggle towards the scientific socialism led by the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov) against the fascist ban imposed by the government of Nepal.

Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov) is the sole heritor of the historical Nepalese people’s war (started in 1996-) that was regrettably dissolved by former comrades Prachnada and Dr. Baburam Bhattarai surrendering in favor of old parliamentary systems. This party identifies the “Indian monopoly capitalism” and Indian expansionism closely collaborating with the Anglo-European American imperialism as the root cause of sociopolitical suffering in the south asia. Further, it puts forward the concept of “unified people’s revolution” in an active participation of people supported by the revolutionary party as a path towards the scientific socialism.

Additionally, Nepalese people’s progressive front (NPPF), Europe is a Nepalese diaspora which acts as a common forum of progressive Nepalese living in Europe. Apart from its social activities, NPPF stands for fundamental human rights, freedom of speech and rightful people’s struggle in Nepal and around the world.

Sincerely

Nepalese people’s progressive front (NPPF), Europe

Central Committee

Maoist rebels attack Indian government forces, wounding 11

Maoist rebels attack Indian government forces, wounding 11

Police say Maoist rebels have triggered a blast in eastern India, wounding eight paramilitary soldiers and three police officers carrying out a search operation in a forested area.
Police officer D.K. Pandey says the wounded soldiers have been hospitalized in Ranchi, the state capital, after Tuesday’s attack. The soldiers belonged to a special jungle warfare unit.
The explosive is suspected to have been buried in a dirt track.
Early this month, Maoist rebels attacked a van carrying police commandos in western Maharashtra state and killed 15 officers and their driver.
The Maoist rebels, who claim inspiration from Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, have been fighting India’s government for more than four decades, demanding land and jobs for tenant farmers and the poor. They are active in several parts of India.

Naxal attack in Gadchiroli leaves 15 security personnel dead

Naxal attack in Gadchiroli leaves 15 security personnel dead

[https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/defence/possible-naxal-attack-in-gadchiroli-leaves-several-security-personnel-injured/articleshow/69127641.cms]

MUMBAI: Barely 10 ten hours after 27 vehicles were allegedly torched by Maoists near Dadapur village in north Gadchiroli, a reinforcement party of the Quick Response Team (QRT) of the Kurkheda police travelling to Purada (the police station under whose jurisdiction the arson incident was reported) was attacked in a landmine blast.

All the 15 men and the driver of the private vehicle engaged by the police were killed in the blast, carried out by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

While the police said the standard operating procedure (SOP) in sensitive zones keep changing and is tweaked as per requirement, the reason as to why the QRT party didn’t take a road opening party (ROP) will be inquired into. Some lapses like not using an armoured vehicle and not pressing two private vehicles while ferrying personnel were also noticed.

The IED blast occurred around 12.30 pm on Wednesday near Lendhri area, a few kilometre from Kurkheda in north Gadchiroli.

Earlier, around 2 am on Wednesday, 27 vehicles including cement mixers, dumpers and trucks belonging to Amar Infrastructures Ltd, used for the construction of the Purada-Yerkad sector of National Highway-136, were torched near Dadapur in Purada village. Police said the QRT was sent to Purada as reinforcement. Many of the QRT men were tribal youth from the adjoining areas.

“This was a case of a classic trap deployed by Maoists. First, use arson to force the police to send reinforcement and then attack the reinforcement party by placing landmine blasts. Ideally, in such cases, an ROP is a must. It is a golden rule. However, in this case, it wasn’t pressed. This shows that it was a case of poor planning,” said a former senior IPS officer.

“Also, the SOP clearly states that reinforcement should not be sent as a knee-jerk reaction and that the details of the route taken by the police party is only with the unit commander. The fact that the blast took place on a busy tar road on which many vehicles would have had to ply before the incident reveals that the attackers had specific information of the time and the vehicle details in which the QRT party was travelling,” he said.

“The accused would have sat in ambush and triggered the IED when the vehicle reached the designated spot. In an ordinary Maoist attack, a landmine blast is followed by an exchange of fire. But, in this case, since there was specific input, the latter wasn’t required… This only indicates that somebody from within had leaked the information on the movement of the men,” the official said.

Speaking to the press, DGP Subodh Jaiswal said the Maharashtra police will give a fitting response to the attack and, if need be, even carry out cross-border strikes.

The incident comes at a time when Maoists are observing a week-long protest to mark the first death anniversary of 40 of their comrades who were killed by security forces last year in two separate encounters in Gadchiroli district.

While the Kasanasur encounter was a joint operation of the C-60 commandos and battalion 9 of the CRPF, the Rajaram encounter was carried out by the C-60 commandos.

Julian Assange Outside the Gate of Hell

Julian Assange Outside the Gate of Hell

1554979786_616_wikileaks-founder-julian-assange-arrested-in-london-

I’ve been to see Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy several times, mainly when Rafael Correa was President and the Embassy felt like a liberated space. A few weeks ago I met him again. By now Correa’s successor, Lenín Moreno, had capitulated on every level to the American Empire. The Embassy became a prison and Assange’s health deteriorated. He was in no doubt that Moreno had been asked and had agreed to expel him from the Embassy. The US demand for extradition was no longer a secret. The Embassy handed him over to the British police earlier today.

If we lived in a world where laws were respected, then Assange would be charged with jumping bail (a minor offense), fined or kept in prison for a few weeks and then released to return to his native Australia. But both the UK and Australia are, effectively, imperial satrapies and likely to bow to US demands. The secret and not-so-secret state in both countries work closely with (or under) its US masters. Why do they want him so badly? To set an example. To incarcerate and isolate him as a warning to others not to follow the Wikileaks path. Chelsea Manning has been re-arrested because she refused to testify to a Grand Jury against him. Since the Russian and Chinese intelligence agencies are pretty much aware of what the US is up to in most parts of the world, the threat posed by Wikileaks was that it made its information available to any citizen, anywhere in the world, who possessed a computer. US/EU foreign policy and its post 9/11 wars have been based on lies, promoted by global TV and media networks and often accepted by a majority of North American and European citizens. Information contradicting these lies challenges the stated motives for war — human rights, democracy, freedom, etc.

Wikileaks has been exposing all this by publishing classified documents that shine a light on the real reasons. It is an astonishing record. Till now WikiLeaks has published almost 3 million diplomatic cables and other US State Department records, comprising some two billion plus words. This stupendous and seemingly insurmountable body of internal state literature, which if printed would amount to some 30,000 volumes, represents something new in the world. This is where the Internet becomes a subversive force, challenging the propaganda networks of the existing order. Assange and his colleagues made no secret that their principal target was the American Empire and its global operations. The response of US institutions has been hysterical and comical. The Library of Congress, blocked Internet access to WikiLeaks. The US National Archives even blocked searches of its own database for the phrase “WikiLeaks.” So absurd did the taboo become that, like a dog snapping mindlessly at everything, eventually it found its mark — its own tail. As Julian Assange pointed out: “By March 2012, the Pentagon had gone so far as to create an automatic filter to block any emails, including inbound emails to the Pentagon, containing the word ‘WikiLeaks.'” As a result, Pentagon prosecutors preparing the case against US intelligence analyst PFC Manning, the alleged source of the Cablegate cables, found that they were not receiving important emails from either the judge or the defense.

The British government is insisting that they will follow the law. We shall see. The US Department of Justice has stated that Assange could face five years in a US prison. Diane Abbot, a leading member of Jerremy Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet, said in parliament today:

“On this side of the house, we want to make the point that the reason we are debating Julian Assange this afternoon – even though the only charge he may face in this country is in relation to his bail hearings – is entirely to do with the whistleblowing activities of Julian Assange and Wikileaks. It is this whistleblowing activity into illegal wars, mass murder, murder of civilians and corruption on a grand scale that has put Julian Assange in the crosshairs of the US administration. It is for this reason that they have once more issued an extradition warrant against Julian Assange … Julian Assange is not being pursued to protect US national security, he is being pursued because he has exposed wrongdoing by US administrations and their military forces.”

We will learn more in the days and weeks ahead. In the meantime, Wikileaks and its founder expect and deserve the solidarity of all those of us who believe that citizens should not be treated like children and that most politicians in the US/EU orbit are untrustworthy and hate their lies and corruptions being exposed.

‘Dark moment for press freedom’: Edward Snowden responds to Assange arrest

‘Dark moment for press freedom’: Edward Snowden responds to Assange arrest

 

Fellow whistleblower Edward Snowden has responded to the arrest of Julian Assange in London, tweeting that the images of Ecuadorian authorities handing him over to UK police were a “dark moment for press freedom.”

In the tweet, Snowden said the images of a publisher of “award-winning journalism” being dragged out of the embassy would “end up in the history books.”

 

Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday morning, just days after WikiLeaks had said his removal from the building was imminent following a withdrawal of asylum from Quito.

The whistleblower, who has released hundreds of thousands of authentic documents and diplomatic cables, had been living in exile at the embassy for the last 6 years.
