Week in Struggle: September 4-11

India

A press release from the Communist Party of India (Maoist) denounced the fascist Modi government for its deceitful propaganda claiming that former General Secretary of the CPI (Maoist), Ganapathy, was planning to surrender in an act of betrayal of the People’s War. The note also mentions the government’s failure to handle numerous issues including the current global economic crisis and national conflicts like the one in Kashmir as well as the recent border clashes with China. It also notes the fascist government’s failure to defeat the People’s War and its persecution of political prisoners like Varavara Rao and GN Saibaba.

Reports have surfaced that the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA), led by the CPI (Maoist), annihilated a police chief in the Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh, leaving a pamphlet from the Party’s Bastar West Division Committee claiming credit for the action.

CPI (Maoist) also denounced the kidnapping, torture, and murder of the military commander Dudi Devalu, also known as Shanker, while he was in the hospital being treated for an illness. The fascist state claimed victory after concocting yet another fake encounter, announcing that he had been killed in an armed confrontation.

Revolutionary Turkish organization Partizan released a version of the short film “Guerrilla Four Seasons,” shot by militants of the Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist (TKP/ML) documenting one recruit’s introduction to the guerrillas of the Liberation Army of the Workers and Peasants of Turkey (TİKKO) and the People’s War, with English subtitles.
