causeofconcernMaoists trying to regain ground in bauxite hills
They see an opportunity to exploit tribals’ opposition to mining The CPI (Maoist), which had receded from Visakhapatnam’s Agency areas in recent years, has been trying to recover its influence over tribal communities. The banned naxalite group allegedly sees an opportunity in the TDP government’s proposal to mine bauxite in the Vizag hills, to which tribal people in this district have been opposing for long. After taking over reins, Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has been repeatedly stating that bauxite deposits in the Eastern Ghats will be exploited.
Tribal groups in the Agency area are alarmed that this will result in their eviction from their homelands and loss of livelihood. Sources say there have been inputs to suggest that CPI (Maoist) has resumed its attempts to stoke unrest among tribals. The Maoists are allegedly back to organising meetings in remote tribal villages in the hills, trying to rally opposition to bauxite mining. Four meetings are said to have been held so far with about 1000-1500 tribal people attending. Some elected representatives are said to have been coerced by the Maoists into attending some of these meetings. Police are worried over these reports. They believe Kudumula Ravi, one of the top regional leaders of CPI (Maoist) in the area, has been active in the tribal hills in the last eight months trying to organise support for his party.

Galice, Spanish State: the campaign in defence of Dr GM Saibaba goes on with hundreds of posters stuck

Le régime hindutva fasciste de Modi déchaîne une nouvelle vague de répression d’Etat et de guerre contre le peuple ! Répondons par l’intensification de la contre-information, la couverture médiatique et la solidarité internationale et internationaliste !

L’Etat indien, gouverné par le régime de Modi au service de ses maîtres indiens et de l’impérialisme, développe une nouvelle étape de la répression féroce dans tous les domaines dans le but d’écraser le peuple, d’arrêter la guerre populaire, d’attaquer les maoïstes qui la mène. Afin d’accélérer ses objectifs de vendre les ressources naturelles aux multinationales intérieures et étrangères, le régime indien restructure l’ensemble de son appareil répressif : armée, armée de l’air, police, gangs paramilitaires. Ils attaquent non seulement la «menace naxalite», mais tous les mouvements opposés à leurs politiques et qui résistent à l’ « Opération Green Hunt ». Ils attaquent aussi les intellectuels démocrates, les militants des droits de l’homme et toute voix dissidente qui se fait entendre, afin d’isoler complètement les mouvements populaires et la guerre populaire dirigés par les maoïstes. Ils attaquent les populations adivasis vivant sur les terres riches en ressources naturelles, où la guerre populaire est plus forte, afin d’éliminer le nouveau pouvoir populaire en pleine effervescence. Au cours des dernières semaines, en particulier, le régime indien a largement vanté les arrestations illégales d’intellectuels révolutionnaires et de militants sociaux estimés, déjà criminalisées et forcés à la clandestinité, puis pointés du doigt comme terroristes, dont le seul crime est l’appartenance au Parti Communiste d’Inde (maoïste).
Les Camarades Murali Kannampally et Ismail Hamza ont été arrêtés à l’hôpital de Talegaon Dabhade où le premier suivait un traitement médical, tandis que le Camarade Roopesh, sa femme Shyna, et d’autres ont été capturés à Coimbatore. On sait qu’au moins deux d’entre eux se sont vu refuser une assistance juridique et des soins médicaux dont ils ont besoin, alors que d’autres prisonniers ont révélé que, lors des interrogatoires, les policiers les ont menacé de les emmener dans la forêt et de les exécuter dans de fausses embuscades ou que leur famille sera arrêté. Sous toute sorte de prétexte, leur détention illégale est étendue et il est à craindre le recours à la torture, comme cela a déjà eu lieu de nombreux cas. Contre ces arrestations, il y a une grande mobilisation en Inde ces derniers jours pour la libération des prisonniers et la défense de leurs conditions de vie et de détention.
La persécution des intellectuels et des démocrates à l’Université n’a jamais cessé. GN Saibaba, professeur à l’Université de Delhi, avec un handicap de 90 pour cent, est en prison depuis un an alors que le procès n’a pas encore commencé et les tribunaux ont rejeté à plusieurs reprises sa demande de libération sous caution, malgré la preuve qu’il ne représente aucun danger et n’a aucune chance de s’échapper. Pendant ce temps, la chasse aux sorcières continue contre les étudiants et les intellectuels accusés d’avoir des « liens maoïstes » : menacés, harcelés, arrêtés, détenus pendant des années en attente d’un procès, qui, lorsqu’il a lieu, fini fréquemment par un acquittement. En Inde et dans le monde entier fleurissent les initiatives de solidarité pour exiger leur libération immédiate et l’abrogation des lois draconiennes, un héritage colonial destiné à les tourmenter. Ces mêmes lois utilisées pour condamner à l’emprisonnement à vie sous la charge de « sédition » Raja Sarkhel et Prasun Chatterjee, membres du Front démocratique révolutionnaire, une organisation officielle non interdite, ainsi que Chatradhar Mahato et trois autres militants connus du peuple.
Le régime de Modi augmente à grande échelle la répression et le déplacement, souvent avec des massacres, sur les adivasis et celles et ceux qui résistent à l’expulsion de leurs terres pour faire place aux grands projets qui vont dévaster leurs terres pour toujours. Le PCI (maoïste) révèle comment l’Etat indien prépare un « Salva Judum 2 », la réplique de la première Salva Judum déclenchée au cours des dernières années. Salva Judum est l’infâme nom donné aux gangs paramilitaires de fondamentalistes hindous a qui carte blanche et pleine impunité ont été données pour commettre des atrocités, incendies, destructions, massacres, viols, commis au nom du «développement» dans de nombreux villages. C’est une nouvelle escalade de la guerre contre le peuple qui dure depuis 2009 – l’Opération Green Hunt – à laquelle les masses populaires en lutte et toutes les sections de l’opposition démocratique dans la société indienne ripostent sur tous les champs, comme lors de la première Salva Judum , dont les gangs ont été battus et défaits par les masses et la guerre populaire dirigées par le PCI (maoïste).
Les initiatives de résistance pour arrêter la guerre contre le peuple se multiplient dans toute l’Inde, tandis que le mouvement populaire visant à renverser les classes dirigeantes se développe. La répression n’arrêtera pas, mais alimente la rébellion. Les camarades arrêtés sont bien connus et aimés par le peuple, qui expriment la solidarité et intensifient la lutte. Mais nous avons aussi besoin de toute urgence d’intensifier la solidarité internationale et internationaliste, qui s’est développée sous de nombreuses formes ces dernières années, afin d’arrêter la main génocidaire de Modi et soutenir la lutte des masses indiennes. Le Comité international de soutien à la guerre populaire en Inde appelle l’ensemble du mouvement à se mobiliser pour une campagne prolongée de contre-information et d’exposition du régime indien et de l’impérialisme qui le soutient.
Stop Green Hunt !
Défendons les camarades arrêtés et les prisonniers politiques !
Soutenons les masses en lutte !
Un mois d’activités et d’initiatives dans les ambassades, les consulats, les centres d’intérêts économiques des multinationales indiennes, des réunion publique visant à informer et à développer la solidarité populaire, pour rendre hommage aux martyrs de la révolution, de présentation des livres et des publications du PCI (maoïste) et des intellectuels indiens afin de se renseigner sur la situation en Inde et les progrès de la lutte du peuple révolutionnaire.

Police-Maoists exchange fire in Visakhapatnam forests
The exchange of fire took place between 10.15 a.m. and 10.30 a.m. and it appeared that the Maoists fired first to stall the police party and to escape from the area. Maoists and a Special Party of police exchanged fire near Cheedipalli of Gorrellametta village under Boodaralla panchayat in Koyyuru mandal on Wednesday morning. Two groups of Maoists, with 15 members, fired four rounds on the police party from a distance of about 800 meters and the police retaliated by firing one round and the Maoists escaped according to preliminary reports reaching here, Superintendent of Police Koya Praveen said. The exchange of fire took place between 10.15 a.m. and 10.30 a.m. and it appeared that the Maoists fired first to stall the police party and to escape from the area.
Combing operations were intensified after the exchange of fire, Mr. Praveen added. According to unconfirmed reports senior leaders of Maoist party, commander of central regional committee-I Kudumula Ravi and former head of military operations of the party in ABO Chalapathi were present. The Maoists broke into three groups after the incident and escaped into the forests. A few days ago the Maoists conducted a meeting in this area and the leaders might be present there in this connection. This is the second exchange of fire between the Maoists and the AP Police in the AOB area in the recent times. There were some other violent incidents reported in Visakhapatnam Agency.
During January the AP Police and Maoists were involved in exchange of fire near Bejjangi in Odisha, which is about 25 k.m. from Munchingputtu in the Agency. During April the police fired at a group of Maoists during a combing operation at Oodalamarri near Pulusumamidi under Gummidala Panchayat in G.K. Veedhi mandal. The Maoists escaped into the forests without retaliating.

Maoists call upon cops to join ‘struggle’

Maoists appear to have found a new recruitment pool — police officials engaged in anti-Naxal operations. In a statement released by CPI (Maoist) spokesperson Malajulla Venugopal alias Abhay, the Maoist leadership has urged policemen to quit their jobs and join the “revolution” to defeat the “sinister” and “fascist” designs of their seniors and political leaders. To drive home the point, the CPI (Maoist) has also cited incidents of “over-stressed” policemen killing their seniors and claimed that more than 1,000 security personnel have been killed in anti-Naxal operations. “Think about your background. You belong to the lower strata of the society. You cannot deny that you have come from families of poor tribals, labourers and farmers. Think about who you are serving just to feed your families. We know you are not honestly agreeing to the demands of the job and your family members not happy that you have to do this. Your senior officers, fraudulent politicians are trying to instil false patriotism in your minds by branding Maoists as a security threat. But, the fact is that the rate of quitting a police job is about one in three. You must understand the selfish motive of politicians to loot resources of the people,” Abhay said in the statement.
The statement claims several politicians from across political parties are corrupt. It also makes a mention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the 2002 Gujarat riots. “The same Modi is now travelling around the world to sell India’s resources to foreigners in the name of Make in India. That is why leaders like Barack Obama, Stephen Harper and Angela Merkel are praising him. Your guns are actually meant to forcibly acquire farmers’ lands. Are you ready to shed your blood for these people,” Abhay said. Claiming that over 50,000 police personnel engaged in anti-insurgency operations had quit their jobs, Abhay said, “Consider why some of you are committing suicide or killing your officers. Are you being treated fairly by your superiors? Many media reports have exposed the tragic realities of your tension-filled lives. Stop staying away from your near and dear ones. You should join the struggle waged by poor farmers, workers, women and other affected sections… Don’t fall prey to the sinister designs of Narendra Modi, Mohan Bhagwat and Amit Shah… Operation Green Hunt is designed to loot people’s resources.”

Bandh near total in red zone

26bhrMaoist_211041GAYA: Arjun Prasad, SHO of the Amas police station has been put under suspension on the charge of dereliction of duty during the naxal operation on the all important GT Road Sunday night. No less than 32 trucks were torched by the red rebels in one of its major operation on the always busy National Highway. The police came in for criticism for its allegedly lethargic and delayed response that virtually gave a free run to the Maoists who were in total command of a 2 km long stretch of the highway between Bishunpur and Taradih villages of the Amas police station area. Confirming the suspension of the SHO, Gaya SSP Manu Maharaj said that he would not tolerate any lapse on the part of the cops. Continue reading

Murali Kannambally and his aide in custody till June 9

justiceforMuraliPUNE: A special court here on Monday remanded senior CPI (Maoist) leader Murali Kannambally and his aide, Ismail Hamja CP, in judicial custody till June 9 after the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) moved a plea while reserving its right to seek the duo’s further custodial interrogation depending on fresh disclosures in the ongoing probe against them. Murali (61) and his aide were arrested by the ATS from Talegaon Dabhade near Pune on May 8 and are charged for various offences including forgery, use of forged documents and impersonation under the Indian Penal Code and offences under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for alleged anti-national activities and promoting and spreading activities of the banned CPI (Maoist) organization.
Since their arrest, the ATS first secured their custody till May 15 and the same was extended by the court till May 21 and again till May 25 i.e. total 16 days. At the last hearing, the ATS had informed the court that it wanted to arrest a key suspect from Thane who provided finances and logistic support to Murali and his aide and also sought Murali’s DNA test in view of the several fake identities he had given till his arrest. An ATS official said, “We have disclosed to the court some more progress in our investigation but, have sought magisterial custody for the two accused as we may need them for custodial interrogation on a later stage when some fresh arrests are made.” Murali’s lawyer, Rahul Deshmukh, said, “The ATS report on Monday made no significant disclosure apart from the fact that they are after the key suspect from Thane. The ATS has taken blood samples of Murali and has summoned his brother for DNA matching formalities. We will take a call on moving a bail plea once we get certified copies of all relevant documents.”

Roopesh and Shyna taken to Perumbavoor

RoopeshPerumbavoor: Maoist leaders Roopesh and his wife Shyna, accused of providing a hiding place to Maoist central committee member Mallaraja Reddy and People’s War Group women’s cell leader Beecha Jaganna (Suguna), were secretly taken to Perumbavoor to collect evidence. The 20-minute-long evidence collection took place in a house owned by Kanjirakkad Amampilli Murali, which Roopesh had taken on rent using a fake name. A. Anil Kumar, the SP of internal security division, said Roopesh had said that he had taken the house on rent to arrange a hiding place for Mallaraja and had stayed with them. Murali, the house owner, has identified Roopesh and Shyna.
While renting the house, Roopesh had said that he was an Engandiyur resident Sumesh and his wife was a teacher. Since the events related to the case had taken place in August-December 2007, there was no material evidence to collect from the site. Now another family is staying in that house on rent. There is another case against Roopesh and Shyna for taking computers and Maoist publications from this house where Mallaraja Reddy had stayed. Evidence was collected secretly to prevent anyone supporting their cause from coming to the site in Perumbavoor where there are many workers from other states. In many instances, people had come to support them shouting slogans. They had even talked to media while they were taken to court. The evidence collection was supervised by DYSPs A. Shanavas and K.V. Vijayan.
