28 july – Vocal in Demanding the Release of the Revolutionary Poet Varavara Rao and All Political Prisoners

posted by  _Canada

While India is reeling with Covid-19, the country’s central and state governments have refused to release an old man from prison. Varavara Rao, a 81 year old revolutionary poet, is in jail on the Bhima Koregaon case. Meanwhile, some inmates of that jail have died due to Covid-19. Prominent personalities of the country and abroad have become vocal in demanding the release of this revolutionary poet. As revolutionary student and youth organisations, we demand the release of Varavara Rao and all political prisoners around the world.
On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the victory of the Dalits in the war against the upper caste Peshwas at Bhima Koregaon, Maharashtra, Hindutva forces yet again attacked the people and on 28 September 2018 Varavara Rao, Sudha Bharadwaj, Vernon Gonsalves, Arun Ferreira, Gautam Navlakha were arrested from Delhi, Pune, Faridabad, Mumbai, and Hyderabad on multiple charges. Later Shoma Sen, Anand Teltumbde, Surendra Gadling, Mahesh Raut, Sudhir Dhawale, Rona Wilson and many other social workers, lawyers, poets and professors were arrested as well. They were charged under various unconstitutional laws like Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), sedition and so on.
Also arrested was the 90 percent physically disabled Professor G N Saibaba, who is being held in the small ‘Anda Cell’ of the Nagpur Jail. The jail crucially does not have the infrastructure to keep someone in Saibaba’s condition. As a result, his physical condition is deteriorating day by day. The Indian state is also continuing to target the veteran Maoist theoretical leader Kobad Ghandy by conspiring to block his release from jail on new false charges despite him suffering from cancer.

On 28 May, poet Varavara Rao fell unconscious in jail. He was admitted to J J Hospital in Mumbai. Although his condition was just slightly stable, he was brought back to jail on 1 June. Varavara Rao’s family was not allowed to visit the hospital. They didn’t even get a chance to talk to the poet on the phone. In this situation, Varavara Rao’s wife applied for bail in the NIA court but that application was rejected. Although article 21 of the Indian Constitution guarantees the right to life even if a citizen is imprisoned. On June 26, the NIA court again rejected the bail plea of Varavara Rao regarding illness. Varavara Rao has since contracted Covid-19 which in his current condition could prove to be fatal.
We have seen that in India different national and local parties make different promises during elections, but there is little difference between them in terms of anti-people policies and anti-people laws like UAPA, sedition etc. Almost all parties have been using these laws to suppress dissent. However, in spite of this repressive policy of the state, the protests and movements of workers, peasants, students and social workers in different parts of India have not stopped. And this is why the ruling class fears even the elderly Varavara Rao, or the physically challenged Professor Saibaba. That is why they have to be kept in jail even during the coronavirus crisis.
In contrast to the increasingly fascistic old Indian state, at least 100 leading intellectuals in the world, such as Noam Chomsky, Homi K Bhabha, Partha Chatterjee and Gerald Horne have written letters to the President and Chief Justice of India demanding the release of Varavara Rao. 375 prominent personalities of India including Amol Palekar, Shabana Azmi, Shankha Ghosh, Aparna Sen, Kaushik Sen have written an open letter to the Central Government of India.
Meanwhile, recently 14 Indian MPs wrote a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray requesting that the revolutionary poet Varavara Rao be transferred from Taloja Jail in to a hospital. Several inmates have already died of coronavirus in that jail. Officially, the number of Covid-19 confirmed cases in India is about half a million, more than 16,000 died. Almost every day new records of infections and deaths are being set.
The Indian government is putting at risk the lives of Varavara Rao and others, who have been detained in attempts to demobilise and demoralise the people. The Government of India will be held responsible for the death of Varavara Rao or if any of the other political prisoners are infected with the virus during their detention during the coronavirus crisis. We once again demand the Government of India to immediately release the revolutionary poet Varavara Rao and all other political prisoners.
When it comes to the issue of political prisoners in Manipur, there is a large number of people behind bars under draconian acts such as Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), National Security Act (NSA), and Sedition law. Anyone with a voice of dissent, raising his or her voice against the government, the state, people who are demanding their democratic right to self determination are put behind bars. To understand the gravity of the situation, we can cite some newspaper reports. A report published in 2015 in The Hindu, a reputed Indian newspaper, says “Manipur, which accounts to only 0.2 per cent of the country’s population, has registered nearly 65 per cent of cases under Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, (UAPA). Out of the 975 cases of UAPA registered in the country in 2014, 630 are from the small north-eastern State of Manipur..” Another report in Times of India published this year indicates that the situation has slightly changed but the number of people charged under UAPA in Manipur still remains high. The report quoting Nation Crime Bureau Records tells us that in the year 2018, people charged under UAPA is 289 in Manipur, this number is higher than that of Kashmir for that year. Though Kashmir is known for state repression, Manipur has faced its own share.
In Manipur some of the Political Prisoners who are in prison, charged with the National Security Act (NSA) or under trial (not yet convicted):

  1. Moirangthem Ranapratap @ Paikhomba Meitei ,KCP, PWG (Marxist Centre). He is currently in Tihaar Central Jail, Delhi (still under trial)
  2. Khoirom Ranjit @ Rocky, Convenor, KCP, PWG (Marxist Centre). He is in Tihaar Central Jail, Delhi, right now. (still under trial)
  3. Sapamcha Kangleipal @ Chiranglen, Manipur Maoist. He is currently in Sajiwa Central Jail, Manipur.
  4. Moirangthem Inaocha @ Premananda, People’s Liberation Army. He is now incarcerated in Sajiwa Central Jail Manipur

In the last few years, hundreds of opposition leaders have gone missing in Bangladesh. Even under this Covid-19 crisis, the suppression of opposition views in Bangladesh has not been stopped. Political activists, including cartoonists, are being imprisoned for criticizing the government during the pandemic. Journalists are being thrown into jail for disclosing information about government irregularities and corruption. Journalist Kajal was abducted and later unjustly arrested and kept in jail.
The fascist Hasina-Awami government is strangling the masses of people with both the right steps not being taken to deal with Covid-19 and the continued repression of dissidents. In this case, the Hasina government is not at all different from the reactionary governments of other countries like the Modi government of India.
In Nepal, the repression of truly revolutionary forces has continued with comrade Uma Bhujel “Shilu” being re-arrested for the tenth time following a court release order. Uma Bhujel “Shilu” is a Central Committee member of the Biplab led Communist Party of Nepal.
The repression of dissident voices has also been seen among the imperialist nations. In Canada, the state’s genocidal policy against the Indigenous nations has intensified as resistance to capitalism and settler-colonialism has increased internally. Most recently this has been seen with the response and aftermath to the RCMP invasion of Wet’suwet’en territory in northern British Columbia. The state has been quick to attack and arrest those defending their lands or those active in the blockades called in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en nation in order to deal a blow to the Canadian state’s economy.

28 July Germany – TKP/ML for the freedom of turkish comrades and Indian prisoners

28 July Germany – TKP/ML for the freedom of turkish comrades and Indian prisoners

Germany

Numerous demonstrations were held this week across the country to condemn the results of the Munich TKP/ML trial. Ten people were arrested around Europe in 2015 and extradited to Germany, detained for over four years during legal proceedings for alleged membership in the Communist Party of Turkey/ Marxist-Leninist (TKP/ML).
On July 28 they were sentenced to prison terms ranging from 2.75 years to 6.5 years for no specific crime other than being members of a “foreign terrorist organization” (referencing TKP/ML), a Party that is not even classified as a ‘terrorist organization’ in Germany. The arrests, convictions, and sentences are clearly politically motivated and were done in service of the fascist Turkish state. Below are pictures from protests in Munich, Bremen, Hamburg, and Berlin.

Action in Berlin, signs read “Freedom for all political prisoners!” and
“Freedom for the Accused in the TKP/ML trial and Varavara Rao!”

Ajith released – we await confirm – PCm Italy declaration

Ajith released – we await confirm – PCm Italy declaration

[https://maoistroad.blogspot.com/2019/07/ajith-released-we-await-confirm-pcm.html]
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!
