Speech delivered by Atif Anik on Irabot Day 2018

Speech delivered by Atif Anik, President, National Committee, Revolutionary Student-Youth Movement/Bangladesh at THAU ground, Imphal on 30th September 2018
Comrades, co-worker and struggling people of Manipur,
Red salute and Revolutionary greetings on the behalf of Peoples Of Bangladesh. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak before you on the 122th birthday of Comrade Hijam Irabot.
I’ve come to Manipur on the invitation of the Students’ Union of Manipur to commemorate the birthday of Hijam Irabat. General Secretary of SSUM, comrade Bushan invited our Organisation, Revolutionary Student-Youth Movement through facebook.
Our National Committee accepted that invitation and sent me here. So, first, I want to thank the friends of the Socialist Students’ Union who have given us the opportunity to declare our Solidarity with the people of Manipur.
Today, it is the 122th birthday of comrade Hijam Irabat. Last 26 September was the 67th anniversary of his death. But still, today, Manipur has not been able to reach the envisioned destination of Hijam Irabat!
Friends in struggle,
Comrade Hijam Irabat dreamed of a classless Society. He dreamed of a sovereign Democratic Manipur. Until the end of his life he fought the fight. And because of that he didn’t have much time to fight against his physical conditions. After becoming infected with Typhoid, he left the world.
Actually, this is the meaning of revolutionary life. Shouldn’t we be like him? How much we followed him? We have to reflect on this again.

We, the Bangladeshi People feel proud because in the time of the anti-British movement, comrade Irabat was Bangladesh’s Sylhet jail for likely two years. From this time, major ideological changes happened in his life. Sitting in Sylhet jail, he was educated to be a communist.
Bangladeshi comrades have many things to learn from Comrade Hijaam Irabat. We want to learn from his Revolutionary life.
Comrades, Manipuri people have a long-enduring revolutionary history. Though in the whole of South Asia Manipur is a small area, its fertile stirring soil has taken hold as a struggling region to the world. From the start of the anti-British movement to now, Manipuri People have been fighting continuously for their rights.
Friends in struggle,
When we study history of Manipur, we notice that Manipur’s fighting women play a vital role in the revolutionary struggle of Manipur. In the struggle for social change the woman of Manipur are an example to follow.
We heard about Irom Sharmila Chanu. We were on the side of her long fair fight. Her long self sacrificing struggle couldn’t win in the end. But Manipur’s People should learn from her struggle . To the exploiter ruling class, People’s lifes are worthless. So, fasting will not give any solutions.
For Revolutionary changes, Manipur needs Marxist politics of revolutionary violence. That politics is obviously different than the Revisionist CPM-CPI.
Till date, thousands of people and revolutionary warriors have sacrificed their lives in the fight for Manipur. But many of them died in the nationalist struggle. Comrade Hijam Irabat said that fighting against other nationalities cannot be fought for the benefit of just their own people. Therefore,the ethnic fight is subjected to class struggle. Independent national development is possible only in socialist society. Freedom for nationalities is therefore part of the struggle for establishing socialism-communism. Hopefully, the oppressed people of different ethnicities of Manipur will understand this well.
We believe that the fight of Manipur and ours is one and the same. We have to fight together against a common enemy in South Asia. In the revolutionary battle of South Asia, we should fight shoulder by shoulder. We, on behalf of the people of Bangladesh would like to call on you.
We believe that in the revolutionary struggle in South Asia, democratic development of the whole South Asian people will be possible. Within that revolutionary struggle, hundreds of ethnic groups will be able to enjoy their independent autonomous development.
We have to fight together against the exploiter ruling class of South Asia.
Finally, I want to say something to the youth of Manipur. Potecting the motherland is a very important issue. You are responsible for protecting the soil of Manipur till your last breath. You are the rising sun of eight or nine o’clock in the morning. Your participation in the leadership of Manipur’s working class and peasants will accelerate the struggle of Manipur.
Friends in struggle,
The people of Bangladesh are not in a good situation. Fascism has been established there. All means of expression of people are being stopped. Anti-people Article 57 and Digital Security Act are produced to stop the people’s voice. The farmer does not get the cost of his produced crops, the worker does not get minimum wages for his living. There is no good environment for the education of the children. The riches going more rich, and the poor are more poor.
There are also thousands of revolutionaries killed in the name of crossfire, a term used by the state and police to verify the extra judicial killings. In the name of anti-drug campaign, people have been killed arbitrarily. The common people of Bangladesh are also in a bad situation.
The oppressed people of Bangladesh and the oppressed people of Manipur are friends of each other. We call upon you to stand for the sake of our struggle.
We believe that there is no country for workers and oppressed class. Therefore, the struggle of the whole world’s working class is one and identical.
Your fight is our fight.
Your struggle is our struggle.
Your victories are our victories.
Your defeats are our defeats.
Even though we are from different countries and different nations,
we are earn with the same ideology, strategy and aim’s.
Yawolna Yaifare! – Long Live Revolution!

September 2018: An entire month commemorating Hijam Irabot’s life, militancy and martyrdom

A report from War Zone of Manipur

A report from War Zone of Manipur

It is an act of cowardice to separate the people of Chandel district aside from other places of Manipur because of the ongoing Indian Military Operation. Chadel district is a very important and remarkable place for Maoist Communist Party Manipur from where its first vice-Chairman, comrade Ngamlet Baite hailed since the first establishment and embodiment of the party. Still this district is a place where our party committee has been prevailing in a complete and solid organizational form. The Indian Army has been endlessly continuing to jeopardize and frighten the innocent people in the areas of the district after the attacked against Indian Army carried out by some ethnic militant group. The act of Search and Destroy operation is still imposed, by using a group of armed black gang who are under the Suspension of Operation (SoO) with government of India on the pretext of ongoing peace-pact, in search of militants.

According to the information provided by the cadres of MCPM who are operating in the areas of Chandel report that the armed Black gang under SoO came on the lead followed by Indian Army behind. Mr. Minthang, a gang leader took the charge of first in command and Thangboi@Jacob as second in command while the Indian armies followed behind. Thus some of the individuals who are claimed or said to be talking peace-process under SoO are utilised as Human Robot by Indian Army in this so called Military Operation. Mr. Jacob@ Thangboi is the middle man to communicate with the Indian Forces and their Gang members as Indian Army does not understand and speak local dialect and he is the lone person who understands and speak Indian Language (Hindi).  These gang of reactionary led by Minthang and Jacob has pick them up from a camp which officially constructed by the Indian Government at Khamarol Village, hails at Chandel District. They are not allowed to use in so called Counter Insurgency operation of Indian Army as per the agreement under the Suspension of Operation (SoO) or Peace pact. The people of Chandel know well, clearly which members of gang party Mr. Minthang and Mr. Thangboi@Jacob belong to.

There are many party cadres and its units in different places in Chandel district of Manipur. There is no any point of hurt or wound or casualty on the part of the party members in there where military operation is undergoing. It is also an impossible thing on the part of Indian Army who afraid to approach on the lead the encounter to suppress and defeat the revolutionary parties of Manipur. There is not a single camp of MCPM in the territory of Burma (Myanmar).

The National Liberation Movement of Manipur cannot be ever suppressed or uprooted whenever and wherever the Manipuri’s exist on the earth. That the Indian Army who have joint and sent to earn monthly salary by the imperialist and Colonialist India will never be able to suppress the National Liberation Movements of Manipur. Without the slightest knowledge of what is happening in Manipur and without collecting any exact details of the Operation from the spot or nearby villages, some of the mainland Indian Media houses make the Indian armies turn into tigers. Nothing is to be considerable and convinced such hired propaganda. Such people and such activities are termed as “Reactionaries are the paper tigers” by Comrade Chairman Mao. Amid this, the most wonderment is that real situation are in front of the local journalists of Manipur, yet reports are copied or translated from concocted information’s which are published in mainland Indian media (National media, which are thousands of miles far from the Manipur) and re-printed in Manipur by Manipuri Media.

Even a single Manipuri journalist (media) including Mainland Media has not yet trodden and traced into any place where the Military Operation, which comprises of the gang party under SoO is on the lead and the Indian Army that follow behind the gang party, has affected. So the news and information which has been provided regarding the Military Operation in the media are all for none but to preserve the moral of the Indian Army. Thus the newspapers run in mainland India are all hiring of Indian Multi co-operation.

Unfortunately, the way of taking responsibility of the journalists of Manipur at this juncture in such crucial moment is contemptible that such deeds never existed in the history of Manipur. It is high time for the local journalists to ponder over their risk and responsibility in such a situation particularly Indian Military Operations and gross human rights violation by the State.

Essentially our communiqué is to extend so as to affirm the people of Manipur and the people of the world as well to know the very fake drama played and exercised by GOI since local media and occupied Indian media have not yet provided and published the true accounts of Military Operation conducted utilizing group of Black gangs under SoO.

Our Statement might not be published by any of the Indian media. Therefore, all the Maoist Party of the world is appealed to publish it throughout the world. The very message that the UNDERGOING MILITARY OPERATION CANNOT AFFECT THE REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENTS OF MCPM is relayed and assured to the people of the world at large.

 

Strengthen the PCR-RCP Canada! Uphold the Red Flag in Canada! Yawolna Yaifare to PCR-RCP!

Strengthen the PCR-RCP Canada!
Uphold the Red Flag in Canada!
Yawolna Yaifare to PCR-RCP!

Dear Comrades,

We send our warmest revolutionary greetings and heartfelt YAWOLNA YAIFARE (Red Salute) to the PCR-RCP Canada in connection with its 9th anniversary. Maoist Communist Party Manipur is proud to have an opportunity to red salute to all the comrades of Genuine Maoist Party of Canada, PCR-RCP.

Canada is one of the imperialist countries and a member of “Group 8”—imperialist mechanism. It is also the largest imperialist country in terms of territory. Furthermore, Canadian imperialists are considered very close political, economic and military partners of American imperialists. Canadian Imperialist forces- it’s also a part of world biggest reactionary forces NATO, and under its command, has committed a mass murder of civilian population, killed thousands of women, men and children at different Countries. The Revolutionary Communist Party, a vanguard of Proletarian, in such a country is myriad victory for the entire revolutionary and proletarian of the World.

World Proletarian Revolution is inwards a vital period of struggle. Two forces are pitted against each other. On the one hand, the forces fighting for a new world; the revolutionary masses, their heroic struggles, their organizations, with the Maoist parties at the forefront guided by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, on the other, the forces upholding the old order; reactionary forces; imperialism and its local lackeys, who suck the blood of the masses.

The Communist Party of India (Maoist) has advanced to striving for the day when the red flag of the victorious revolution will be hoisted. The masses in their millions are being mobilized and led into battle, well backed by the new political power in the revolutionary base areas covering nearly thirty per cent of the country. The two Maoist parties, CPI (Maoist) and the CPI (ML) (Naxalbari) have merged, thus strengthening the grounds for further advancing the People’s War already spread over a significant part of the country. This is an important event not only for the Maoist revolutionaries and masses in India or of this region but also for the entire movement. In Bangladesh, the Maoist parties are having difficulties but the possibility of Peoples war is in near future. In various countries of South Asia, the masses are stepping up their struggles against imperialist, globalization, comprador-bureaucratic bourgeois, semi-feudal ruling classes. Oppressed nationalities continue to fight for their right of self-determination in Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura.

The Communist Party of Philippines (CPP) also advancing with tremendous victory and we hope the Victory of Filipino People is not far away. CPP has already a victorious party by winning the heart of the millions of Filipino people. The imperialists, particularly the US imperialists, have been increasing their stranglehold and military involvement in the internal affairs of Philippine. It’s a clear indication of the Victory of CPP. We feel warm to know that the New People’s Army is fighting such reactionary forces with enthusiasm. We are learning from the experience of such heroic struggle and generate courage from such victory of the people’s war around the globe. The growing and advancement of people’s War in India and Philippines have created favourable aspiration of Maoist Parties to fight in their respective countries.

The Revolutionary Communist Party Canada has rich political ideology of communist tradition and Maoist Communist Party Manipur is always learning from the rich knowledge of PCR-RCP Canada. The expansion and development of a revolutionary struggle in Canada led by the PCR-RCP would definitely be a victory of world proletarian movement. The ideological and political contribution of PCR-RCP Canada in the world proletarian Revolution is weighty. PCR-RCP Canada is the revolutionary fraternal party of Maoist Communist Party Manipur and the world proletarian revolution. We the Maoist Communist Party Manipur, the New Peoples Militia, the Revolutionary Mass Organizations and revolutionary people of Manipur, is sending our warmest revolutionary greetings and heartfelt YAWOLNA YAIFARE (Red Salute) to the PCR-RCP Canada in connection with its anniversary.

Long Live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Long Live Proletarian Internationalism!
Long Live Revolutionary Communist Party, Canada!
Yawolna Yaifare.

In Struggle,

International Department,
Maoist Communist Party Manipur.
