Chhattisgarh: Babe in arms

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 3, 2007

Friday, August,3 2007 (New Delhi)

The rifle cocked a bit to the left, the boy peered into the car. His face was puffy, hair wiry and dull brown a sure sign of malnutrition. He barked at me, demanding to know where I was coming from. He walked with a faint swagger in ill fitting fatigues, surveying me and my camera-person, as we looked on confused.
Confrontations with security personnel is fairly routine for journalists reporting in Bastar in Chhattisgarh but this was the first time I had encountered a child soldier among the security personnel. It was November, 2006.

We were in Dantewada district, Chhattisgarh’s bleeding heart, to see how well the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) was functioning in the midst of conflict and it was clear that the situation had worsened considerably in the last couple of years.

In village after village, we found burnt remnants of homes, empty shells of primary healthcare centres – polio slogans fading. Anganwadis were abandoned, walls charred, grains spilt and trodden on.

Families had been driven away to government camps in the name of security by members of the government backed anti-Naxal force, Salwa Judum, which controls four blocks of Dantewada. We found notices nailed to trees warning villagers not to return or else face severe consequences.

At the checkpost, I found it hard to strike up a conversation looking down the barrel of a gun. But I wanted to know how the boy soldier was carrying firearms. In the interiors, I knew the government had set up Village Defence Committees but none of them had guns.

Fortunately, intrigued by the camera, the teenager let down some of his guard. He told us that he had been hired as a Special Police Officer (SPO) by the Salwa Judum to monitor the movements of adivasis and vehicles. He confirmed there were many like him. His own brother was posted at the Errabore relief camp.

So far, it was fairly well known that Maoists recruited children as sangam members to work as informants or simply as porters, ferrying necessities to their hideouts. But now it was clear that the Chhattisgarh government wasn’t shying away from using children either.

Chief Minister Raman Singh says he wants to stamp out every vestige of Naxalism from the state. Ironically, the job has been entrusted to these young boys with adult faces. At every roadblock, they clutch rifles bigger than them and stare defiantly at those who pass by.

In a region that is slowly turning into the bloodiest battleground in India’s recent history, these child soldiers are the government’s first line of defence against Maoists.

And the price they pay is steep. When Naxals attack police posts, it is usually these young, semi-trained SPOs who get shot as we saw in Rani Bodli, a small outpost in Bijapur, where 55 security personnel were killed in a midnight attack, 39 were SPOs.

But other than a head count, the police gave out little information. What they forgot to mention was those who died were mostly minors, who were dead drunk and unable to fire a single bullet because they were frightened out of their wits.

And with good reason. Picture this. The Rani Bodli post is a small school building with no lights that stands in a rough clearing, surrounded on all sides by dense forest. Sandbags offer the only protection from guerilla attacks which Maoists mount.

The 303 rifles that the government has kindly provided the SPOs with, don’t always work. All their lives they have watched their fathers and brothers use bows and arrows or axes to hunt. With the Naxalite problem escalating, rifles have been thrust into hands unused to steel.

On most days though, the guns come handy. In a world defined by exploitation, guns provide a new identity synonymous with power. Finally, there’s an opportunity to assert even if it mostly against their own kin. Unfortunately, it’s just another form of enslavement from which there is no escape.

Losing lives apart, the community too is splitting up into shards. Brother has turned against brother – every family must choose either join Salwa Judum or else get branded as Maoists. There is no space for negotiation.

A father who refused to allow his teenage son to take up the gun was burnt to death before his son. The boy is an SPO today but who knows why? Fear drives most decisions in Dantewada these days.

A British journalist who visited Dantewada compares it to Darfur (Sudan). The devastation may be of the same scale but for me, there is a crucial difference. Sudan has caught international attention while Dantewada is nobody’s baby.

Curiously, the central government, which is helping the state fight Naxalism with funds and manpower … has so far maintained a stony silence on this issue.

But the question is, where surveillance helicopters and armoured vehicles, supercops and trained paramilitary forces have failed to control Maoist violence, arming adolescents cannot make much sense.

CPI(Maoist)Karnataka State Committee regarding killing of PSI Venkatesh near thallurangadi of Agumbe

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 3, 2007

Source: Naxal Revolution

There was no encounter took place between police and our PLGA squad near thallurangadi of Agumbe in which PSI Venkatesh got killed. We got this clarification from our squad there .Because of some communication problem this fact reached us lately. Already people and media exposed the police concocted story of encounter, in which PSI venkatesh killed, for covering up their crimes. On that our PLGA squad was not in that area itself.
Government and criminal police officers must take the responsibility of killing PSI Venkatesh.

We are appealing all constables and the personnel of lower level anti naxalite force to think over about killing our most socially committed comrades and people for the sake of cruel bloodsucking exploiters and enemies of common and democratic people. They must think seriously about worthiness and justice in serving the exploiters anti socials at the cost of injustice, being bearing with the exploitation, insult and their life itself. Most of them are all sons of peasants and workers, I.e. toiling masses. It is their duty to serve the interest of their class I.e. vast toiling peasants and workers; they have to think it seriously.

We are not against them, clarifying once again, but when they are coming with guns to kill us, obstructing to organize people for their cause, it definitely pushes us to retaliate and to counter attack as it becomes inevitable for us. As we are committed for poor, common and democratic people with iron discipline, we never surrender people’s interests at any cost. We are having tradition of great sacrifices and vigorous fighting that made us steal and mending us correctly in the path of new democratic revolution of India.

Ruling class is employing you for maintaining their violent exploitation and political control over the people. You are giving protection for them and their crimes on society, serving for the sake of the few, at the cost of the poor, common and democratic people.

We are requesting humbly to stop attacking poor, common, and democratic people and our comrades on directives of your superior officers, it will harm you and it spoils your life. Stop serving ruling class and protecting them. Support people and their cause and just struggles.

We strongly condemn police massacring of struggling peasants of Mudigonda of Andhra Pradesh by fascist Rajashekar reddy’s congress government. People are waging just struggle for only a part of their rightful lands, for that ruling class fascist agent rajashekara reddy government indulged in ruthless violence on people by murdering 8 and seriously wounding several, indiscriminate lathicharge, vulgar abuse even on women. What this shows? Is this a democracy? Is this justful ruling system? Can we expect any punishment for these fascist culprits? Is this ruling system following rules or constitution of India?

We are supporting people’s struggle and their just demands and Rajashekara reddy government should be punished and also the police officers concerned.
Now few judgments on important cases are coming almost simultaneously. There is much publicity over it, as a symbol of justice prevailing in our country. But reality is not so. For completion of this drama of legal system, it took tens of years, in between this several innocents were killed and put in prison and made them to rotten for several years without any chance of bail. Few were died in the prison.

Now few were acquitted only after the completion of unjust punishment. They were punished for crimes of others i.e. communal fascists and ruling fascists. Several of such common innocent people were becoming scapegoats of this unjust and pro establishment legal system in the daily way. Then what remains in acquitting? Is only for certificate of clean chit? Then even such a costly it is.At the same time judgement giving justice himself showing unjust concern to the vip culprit, actor Sanjayadutt, while delivering judgement. Few media is focussing his eats drinks sleeps etc with much concern and hype, as if it is unjust to punish vip culprits.Any how already the very same legal system allowed him to been in outside the prison while others having less crime and sevaral innocents been thrown and rottened in prison.Their protest over it not sounded to the ruling class and courts. Now also, he is having the privilege of coming outside,that chance was there.As hundreds of crores capital is backing him and he is a vip.

These are all damage controlling exercises of ruling class, as people are lost all faith in the legal and administrative system. All over India people are coming out aggressively against the legal and administrative system and political parties. Even so called left parties are also exposed as most efficient imperialist and ruling class agents in several examples, in that westbengal’s nandigram is glaring one. This illusory confidence building exercise is needed to convince revolting people against SEZs,SAZs, giving away of peasants and retailers market to imperialist companies by opening it to them, big dams,big minings, forest projects, etc, by showing that there is scope for getting justice peacefully in this social system.
Election oriented schemes are also working behind this legal drama of punishment and acquittal .Center’s UPA and it’s partner state governments are taking all chances of gain from this.

Tuesday, 24/07/2007

Like in 1999, today the FARC-EP and the ELN we followed together facing the narco terrorist punitive forces of the state that they look for to leave without bread the present and future generations. The victorious battles conducted jointly against the common enemy, imperialism-government-Para Military is example of unity of the guerrilla in the combat.

PART MILITARY: “the FARC-EP and the ELN unite their forces in the Catatumbo”

Army of National Liberation

The government army comes conducting a civic-military operation in the zone from catatumbo, fulfilling orders of the allied government and the narco paramilitary oligarchy to the empire. Everything with the objective to guarantee the expropriation and operation of the natural resources and to open passage to the macro projects of monocultures of multinational and imperial interest.

In such sense I exercise national but it seems I exercise of occupation that runs over, it sacks, it threatens, it moves, assassin and it disappears to humble settlers of the region, restricts free mobility, it blocks the food entrance, it carries out bombings and strafing on zones farmers and natives.


The legitimate and valiant answer of the town in arms in the last two months has been the following one:
Low known I exercise bourgeois enemy of the town.

Popular minings of defense (20), Died: 10, Hurt: 15, Harassments and shocks (17), Died: 9
Hurt: 12, Ambushes (1), Dead, hurt and disappeared: 20, between dead a helicopter pilot

Cars pump: (2) unemployment of the traffic to vehicular between convention-tarra and Ocaña-teorama by space of two days each one.

The parts of dead and captured guerrillas presented/displayed by the commandos of brigades 15 and 30 the president, to the troops and the public opinion are false; the captured and dead are humble farmers of the region, inadvertent facts that are past, by the municipal and departmental authorities.

In our rows we have had 3 slightly wounded, 1 dead, two radios 2m and 1 lost gun.

The victorious battles conducted jointly against the common enemy, imperialism-government-Para military is example of unit of the guerrilla in the combat to the time that becomes a referring one for other regions of the country in the important search of the popular and insurgent unit.

We commemorated the 43 years of the invincible fight by La Paz and the socialism and inspired by develops anti colonial, anti-imperialist and anti oligarchic emancipator of our liberating parents. We ratified the persistence by the guerrilla unit, our combat summarizes the dignity dreams and hopes of the Colombians hasty and vilipendiados by its governors, this example of resistance it summons to the unit and it fights popular, including a the members of the troops and of police anointed of sacred love to Colombia and the town.

CPI (Maoist) karnataka press release on anti people land lords bandh call against our party and people

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 3, 2007


Exploiting landlords are organizing irrespective of political parties, against peasents and common people of malenaadu with sangh parivaar’s mastermind and conspiracy. They are organizing under the name of peace committee to oppose our party in the guise of peace, which we spoiled there; we are destroying family, brotherly and friendly relationships between peasants, workers and landlords there, they are projecting so, for malenaadu. We are the sole reason for violence in malenaadu, they are saying. Before our entry, malenaadu was very nice and peaceful region. There is no such exploitation oppression and violence on peasants and workers in malenaadu they are propagating.

But reality is quite opposite; they are putting efforts to cover their economic, social and cultural exploitation and oppression on common people in the wake of ongoing-armed class struggle. They are having larger land holdings; hundreds and thousands of acres of landholders are there. Areca, coffee, rubber, cashew, elaichi, pepper estates etc are there. They are controlling malenaadu and karavali economically and politcally directly and indirectly also. In this area comprador bureaucratic capitalists like tatas, ABC, tea companies were also having larger presence. Imperialists like Cadburys also there. Other than this after the imperialist sponsored liberalization, privatization, globalization, there were several forest and water, power, mining schemes are upcoming by destroying life of the people, culture, and environment of malenaadu and karavali.

Caste oppression on daliths and adivasis and sex exploitation are rampant. They were treated as second class or third class citizens. In some area they were treated as slaves. Free service is compulsory in few areas and in few feudal and religious institutions. Workers are less paid. Their condition is serious thing, they are provided with pig hut like houses without basic facilities like power water and toilets. Thrashing of workers are still continuing in few places of malenaadu. Majority of people of malenaadu were land less, poor or having small pieces of lands without having records, though applied for it from several years, but still not provided by the government authorities. Now they are threatened by evictions for various imperialist and comprador sponsored forest, water, power etc projects. Government and its authorities are implementing all terror, illusion creation, cunning methods to evict poor peasants from their ancestral home lands. Earlier they used to impose false cases, illegal arrests, tortures, laathicharge, cutting down the paddy, areca, banana and other plants, smashing houses etc like anti people tactics. Now they are terrorizing people by cold blooded murders. Exploiting land lords are supporting all these and opposing people’s struggle from the beginning. All these are peaceful for landlords and their agents but for all common and poor people it was peace less and violent against them. People are fighting for peace and social justice for them. Naturally that becomes peace less and violent for exploiting landlords and their agents, sangh parivaar and comprador state.

Now exploiting landlords, goons of sangh parivaar and their agents joined together, as per their class interests, against people and our party, as our party is leading poor and common people. We are organizing adivasi and other exploited toiling people with revolutionary class politics. By that people are waging uncompromising struggle for their life, livelihood and nature.

We are condemning strongly the bundh call against us and people, given by these anti people exploiting elements on 31st of this month. We are warning seriously to all these anti people pro establishment land lords and their agents to stop this immediately. Otherwise they will have to face wrath of toiling and common people. By doing these type activities they can’t stop ongoing peoples struggle. So many such attempts of exploiters were utterly failed. Even like well organized and equipped state and feudal elements sponsored selva judum ,thrutheeya prasthuthi committee like reactionary mercenaries were beating back by our people’s liberation guerilla army and people in jharkhand ,bihar, chattisghad,maharastra,west Bengal,Andhra Pradesh,etc. In Bidar Raichur of Karnataka also, people fight backed reactionary landlords and their agents by conducting people’s courts and implementing people’s court decisions including elimination of die hard class enemies. Don’t spit skywards it definitely falls on you, the exploiters.

We are appealing all people, all pro people organizations, individuals and democrats to expose and fight conspiracies of exploiting landlords and sangh parivaar combine’s anti people and anti democratic acts like bundh against the people and their cause in the name of maintenance of so called peaceful environment, which is for them.

YS Raja Sekhar Reddy made Mudigonda as another Nandigram

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 3, 2007

Eight persons were killed and eight others injured in police firing and related incidents when the Andhra Pradesh bandh called by the Left parties turned violent in Khammam district on Saturday afternoon.


Tragedy: The bodies of the victims of the

police firing at Mudigonda village, Andhra Pradesh,
being taken to hospital.

According to the police, six persons were killed in the police firing, one woman died due to injuries sustained in police lathi charge and another person came under the wheels of an ambulance and died when the ambulance was rushing the injured persons to the district headquarters hospital. Three of the eight injured persons were in a critical condition and they were undergoing treatment at the district hospital at Khammam.

Hyderabad on Saturday.

Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhar Reddy announced a judicial inquiry and suspended the Additional Superintendent of Police Ramesh Babu and transferred the Superintendent of Police Rajeev Kumar Meena.

The incident occurred in Modigunda village in Khammam district when a group of CPI-M and CPI activists and local people took out a rally, pitched tents on the road and set up a blockade in support of the bandh. They turned violent, pelted stones on policemen and tried to attack the local revenue office. The police resorted to lathi charge and later opened fire to quell the riotous mob, a senior state police official said.

Home Minister K Jana Reddy termed the police firing”unfortunate” and conveyed his sympathies to the members of the bereaved families. He said that a high-level inquiry has been ordered in the police firing incident and basing on the inquiry report, action would be taken against police personnel involved if they were at fault

The chief minister, however, quoted local legislator and minister for health and family welfare S. Chandrasekhar to say that an underground Maoist couple was leading the protest, which led to the violence.

Elsewhere in Andhra Pradesh, sporadic incidents of violence marred the state-wide bandh called by Left parties to protest against indiscriminate police lathi charge on their leaders and activists during the picketing of district collectorates across the state on Thursday as part of their ongoing “Bhoo Poratam.”

The Telugu Desam Party and Bharatiya Janata Party also extended their support to the bandh call given by the Left parties.

The CPI-M and CPI leaders demanded the state government to implement the recommendations of Koneru Ranga Rao Committee in toto. The committee was appointed by the Congress government to examine the various land laws and suggest ways and means for improving the implementation of these laws.

The other demands include land for the landless, house-sites for the poor, an independent commission to monitor the distribution of lands in the state, an ombudsman to check irregularities in the weaker sections housing scheme and withdrawal of all the cases registered against the Left leaders and activists and poor people ever since “Bhoo Poratam” was launched on May 2.

Revolutionary author Pendyala Varavara Rao described YS Rajasekhar Reddy as fascist. Telangana Rashtra Samithi leader K Chandra Sekhar Rao described Rajasekhar Reddy as worse than Napoleon.

Posters written in Telugu have sprung up in certain places of Rayagada and Gosani blocks. The people of Parida, Gothei, Kinchilingi, S Karadasingi and Gandahati villages and in some places near the Mahendragiri hills found the posters pasted at a few selected areas and immediately alerted the police. On the other hand, the bandh call called by the CPI and the CPI-M in Andhra Pradesh to protest against the killing of their supporters in the Kha-mmam district during the bhoomi paratam agitation, had its impact on Gajapati.

Bihar Jails placed on high alert

PATNA: Having been caught unawares during the November 13 naxal attack on Jehanabad jail in 2005, the jail authorities are not willing to leave anything to chance.

It was quite evident when all the jails in the state were put on high alert from July 28, the date on which Charu Mazumdar, one of the founder-members of Ultra’s movement was killed.

The CPI (Maoist) is observing a martyr’s week in his memory.

“Special vigil is also being kept on jails located in Gaya, Bhagalpur, Patna, Sitamarhi and Motihari in the wake of intelligence reports hinting at a possible Naxal attack,” said IG (Prisons) Sandeep Paundrik on Sunday.

Giving details of the special measures taken, he said, SPs of respective districts have also been asked to depute additional security personnel on the jail premises to counter any possible attack apart from the additional lighting arrangement done in the jails. “Leave of all those posted in different jails has been cancelled,” Paundrik added.

Maoists blow up railway signal system in Andhra Pradesh

Kuneru (AP), July 29: Maoists on Sunday blew up a railway signal system in Vijayanagaram, damaging property worth rupees three million.

About 20 Maoists, including five women, blew up the cab

The Maoists also set on fire the records of the railway station.

“They were 15 to 20, out of whom five were women. They took control of the station. They set all the records on the fire and blew up the signalling system,” said Trimurti, Station Master.

Maoist left a note pasted on the wall of the railway station demanding their leader Dharma alias Bhupati, who was arrested on July 23 by Andhra Police, should be presented before a court immediately.

Maoists operate in 13 of 29 states along the “red corridor”, referring to a stretch from the Indo-Nepal border to the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.

Land clash sets off tit-for-tat game- Left settles Nandigram scores with sack cry

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 3, 2007

Mudigonda (Khammam), July 29: Handed its own Nandigram in Andhra Pradesh, the CPM is using it to settle the Bengal Nandigram scores.

Politburo member Sitaram Yechury demanded the resignation of Congress chief minister Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy for yesterday’s police firing in this village that killed four Left land activists and two by-standers.

“Reddy demanded the resignation of Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on account of police firing in Nandigram. He should quit on the same grounds,” said Yechury, who has rushed here with other Left leaders.

The CPM appears to have decided to use the tragedy at Mudigonda, 15km from Khammam town and 211km from Hyderabad, to polish its pro-landless image and offset its mistake in Nandigram.

Unlike Bengal, where the CPM is acquiring plots for industry in the face of Opposition-led farmer protests, the Marxists have joined theCPI in Andhra to agitate for land for the poor.

The firing happened during a Left bandh to protest the Congress regime’s failure to keep its poll promise of handing vacant government land to the urban homeless to build houses and the rural poor to cultivate.

A mob had attacked the revenue divisional officer’s (RDO’s) office at Mudigonda, burning documents and furniture, when the police caned them, fired tear gas shells and then 70 bullets.
Yechury and CPI leader Gurudas Dasgupta claimed the police had fired on peaceful protesters.

Police hide

Mudigonda today bore close parallels with Nandigram. The administration seemed to have collapsed amid simmering public rage, with most personnel having deserted the police stations in Khammam town and Mudigonda, which are being guarded by the reserve police.

The police’s morale appears to have been hit after the government transferred Khammam police chief R.K. Meena and suspended his deputy, additional superintendent M. Ramesh Babu. A circle inspector and a sub-inspector, too, have been suspended.

The police may not have expected such a carnage. ASP Ramesh Babu, believed to have ordered the firing, left the scene in plain clothes, a resident said.

“He took off his uniform and escaped in a lungi and T-shirt borrowed from a constable,” said schoolteacher Harinarayan, 46.

The bodies are still lying in front of the collectorate. Since morning, supporters of the Left, who have called another bandh, have been descending on Khammam.

As in Nandigram, motley Opposition leaders — such as the Telengana Rashtra Samiti’s K. Chandrasekhar Rao and the Telugu Desam’s N. Chandrababu Naidu — are making a beeline for the carnage site.

But not a single Congress leader dared follow them. S. Chandrasekhar, a minister from the district, chose to slam the Left from his secretariat chamber in Hyderabad.

Housing irony

The site of the land battle, ironically, is a place where the government had been touting its showpiece housing project for the poor.

Mudigonda is dotted with 500-600 half-finished houses, being built under the Indiramma project, which features 25 lakh houses across the state, each with a portrait of Indira Gandhi in front.

The Left says the houses are too expensive at Rs 40,000-45,000 and wants free plots for the poor instead. The Congress accuses it of playing politics.

Coordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisation of South Asia

Posted by Indian Vanguard on August 3, 2007


PRESS RELEASE


CCOMPOSA CALLS ON PEOPLE’S OF SOUTH ASIA TO OPPOSE INDIAN RULERS GROWING INTERVENTION IN NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES

The Indian rulers seek total domination of the countries of South Asia acting as the gendarme of the US in this region. At the recently held SAARC Summit it went so far as to propose a South Asia Parliament seeking to undermine even the existing limited sovereign of the South Asian countries. Earlier they had proposed a common currency for the region to further consolidate its economic hegemony in the region. At the SAARC Summit it continued to push its SAFTA {South Asian Free Trade Association, n order to dominate the markets of the region and allow the unhindered free flow of goods made in India {mostly by the big comprador houses and the TNCs} to all countries of South Asia.

CCOMPOSA CALLS for the disbanding of SAARC and the setting up genuine forums of people to people relations between the countries of South Asia.

Lately the Indian rulers have been even more crudely intervening in the internal affairs of neighboring countries and even more crudely crushing the national aspirations for self-determination of the Kashmiri, Naga, Manipuri, Assamese, etc people.

In Nepal they have been playing an active role to diffuse the democratic aspirations of the Nepalese people and prop up the reactionary elements after isolating the Maoists. They have been instigating the Madheshi people of the Terrai against the Maoists in league with the Nepalese monarchy. Hindu fundamentalists have been particularly active in setting up vigilante gangs to murder activists as happened in Gaur where 28 Maoists were killed. Recently these gangs murdered a Central Committee member of YCL {Young Communist League} in the terrain region together with another comrade. The Indian ambassador has, of late, pro-active roaming in the interiors of Nepal offering large sums of money for schools, hospitals, roads, etc in order to wean away the masses from the influence of the Maoists.

In addition the Indian Para-military have fired on and killed the Nepalese of Bhutani origin from returning to their motherland and have been fully involved the US conspiracy to transport 60,000 refugees to the West as some modern day form of slave labour. The US imperialists and Indian rulers have been working to prop up the reactionaries and neutralize the Maoists. CCOMPOSA strongly condemns the role of the Indian rulers in Nepal and demands that they stop meddling in the affairs of Nepal and the India people bring to justice the murderous gangs operating across the Nepalese border.

In Bangladesh the Indian rulers have not only openly backed their stooge Sheikh Hasina but have utilsed the present army-backed caretaker government to push through massive deals for Indian big comprador houses. They have sought help the Tatas to make massive investments there and lately the Mittals have signed a gigantic deal in the energy sector of Bangladesh. The Indian ambassador has been actively acting in the country together with the US ambassador in the dealings between the various political parties and the caretaker government. CCOMPOSA demands that the large natural wealth of poverty stricken Bangladesh be utilized for the development of their own country and not robbed by Indian compradors and the US imperialists.

In Sri Lanka they openly threatened the government when it sought arms from China and Pakistan. The Indian rulers have already imposed humiliating free-trade agreements on Sri Lanka. They have also surreptitiously been assisting the Sri Lanka government to crush the just aspirations of the Tamil people for a Tamil Elam. CCOMPOSA demands the scrapping all these unequal agreements and supports the just struggle of the Tamil people for their self-determination from the jack-boots of the Indian ruling classes.
In addition the Indian rulers continue to maintain and tighten their vice-like grip over the small countries of the region like Bhutan, Sikkim, Malldives, etc and continue their attempts to bully Pakistan utilizing the Kashmir card. Particularly they continue to forcibly maintain the oppressed nationalities within Indian hegemony. Not only does the Indian army of occupation crush their just demands with utmost brutality, they have been pitting one section of the people against the other to drown their just struggles in oceans of blood. This is to be seen in Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, Kashmir and elsewhere. CCOMPOSA demands that the people people of these oppressed nationalites be allowed to determine their own future and the immediate and total withdrawal of Indian army and para-military forces from all these regions.
South Asia has become a burning cauldron of revolutionary, democratic and nationality movements. CCOMPOSA supports all these just movements and calls on the peoples of South Asia to unite against their common enemy and not fall prey to the divisive policies of the rulers and their US imperialist backers in the region.
