Communist Party of India-Maoist celebrates anniversary
The Communist Party of India (CPI)-Maoist celebrates its 17th anniversary today, September 21. The anniversary is commemorated in a week-long celebration participated in by the revolutionary people of India, fighters of the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army, and the toiling masses.
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) saluted Indian comrades in facing the challenges and obstacles to advance the people’s war in India. Like in the Philippines, people in India suffer oppression and exploitation under a semicolonial and semifeudal societal system. The CPI-Maoist leadership and support to the mass struggles provide of the Indian people, especially to farmers’ struggle with the implementation of neoliberal agricultural policies amid the pandemic, is laudable.
The Party supports the call of the CPI-Maoist to strengthen and broaden the massive protests of farmers and foil the attempt of the ruling Hindutwa group under the BJP party to stay in power in the upcoming national election in India.
