The International Committee to Support People’s War in India called for international days of actions from 30th of January to 1st of February. On this occasion it was focused on the great struggle of the Indian working class, which proved once again that it is a force that can shake the world! As of date this article was published powerful actions have been made by anti-imperialists, anti-fascists and revolutionaries in Austria and Galicia:
On 30th of January, the Galician Committee to Support People's War in India carried out an intense campaign in several neighborhoods in the cities of Galicia, with the following motto: "I support the People's War in India."
The International Committee to Support People's War of Austria published an report of activities in several cities in Austria. In the following we publish extracts from the report:
The solidarity work in support of the People’s War in India was energetically taken up and carried out by the revolutionary activists during the three days of action in Austria. In total, the solidarity work was organized in four federal states. Besides information evenings, graffiti were applied and actions with banners were carried out. The Committee to support Peoples War in India (Austria) also made an contribution to spread the ideological foundations of the CPI(maoist) by translating the document "Hold High the Bright Red Banner of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism" in German language and support with that also the ideological discussion. Also an Poster was made which was spread in many Parts of Austria.
Anti-imperialists from Linz showed their solidarity and support for the People’s War in India by embellishing companies like Strabag, Rosenbauer and Plasser & Theurer with posters and banners in support of the People’s War in India. Wall newspapers and leaflets were distributed, which clearly showed that Austrian capital is also squeezing its profits out of the workers in India. Because it is especially Austrian companies like Voestalpine, Strabag, Rosenbauer, Red Bull, Plasser & Theurer, Raiffeisenbank and many others who exploit and oppress the workers and farmers in India. For example the Rosenbauer Group produces not only fire-fighting vehicles, but also water cannons, which are used specifically against democratic activists, revolutionaries and communists worldwide (!). With the campaign „Make in India“ the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber is appealing to companies and „start-ups“ to set up their locations in India, as there „quick profits“ can be made.
But the workers, peasants, students and women in India resist and struggle against these anti labour methods (the new and old one) not only with general strikes. The masses in India resist organized under the leadership of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) in the biggest revolution in the world.
The attacks of the Indian state against the working class are not only growing in size within anti-working-class laws, but the offensives against the revolutionary and communist movement are also becoming sharper. Thousands of democratic activists, revolutionaries and communists are arrested, tortured and murdered. The war, which is being waged against the people with the support of the main imperialist of the USA, is answered with the people’s war, the plans of the ruling class are met with deeper and deeper blows. No matter how big the offensives are the Communist Party of India (Maoist), the broad solidarity and support among the people is getting even bigger. Also the new plans of the imperialists like the new privatization measures or the new offensive called SAMADHAN, which aims to completely destroy the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and the revolutionary and communist movement by 2022, will not be fruitful, because the Indian workers, peasants, students and women know that only under the leadership of the Communist Party an end to exploitation and oppression can be achieved!
An activist who had been involved in past solidarity work in support of the People’s War in India and the campaign for the release of Comrade Ajith emphasized the considerable importance of the solidarity campaigns, pointing out that only the strength of the People’s War and the high level of international solidarity brought about Comrade Ajtih’s release!
Support the people’s war in India!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
