The Communist Party of India (Maoist) honored and remembered the heros of the Indian revolution during its Martyrs’ Week of Remembrance last July 28 to August 3. They hailed the 124 Indian revolutionaries who died while performing their revolutionary duties the past year and their great leaders such as Charu Majumdar (who died 50 years ago) and Kanhai Chatterjee (who died 40 years ago.)

“The Central Committee salutes all the martyrs who made the supreme sacrifices for the ultimate goal of establishing socialism… and for the new Indian democratic revolution,” CPI (Maoist) Spokesperson Abhay said in a statement.

In a separate statement, the CPI (Maoist) Central Region Bureau hailed the indigenous or Adivasi martyrs of the country and their continuing struggle.

They also called for support to the Advivasis’ struggle against imperialist plunder and defense of ancestral land in relation with the upcoming Indigenous People’s Day on August 9.

The indigenous peoples are victims of the fascist regime’s repression and discrimination against the non-Hindu people. India’s indigenous peoples account for more than 8% of the population. They face oppression as anti-indigenous laws like forced registration, forest ownership and others are being pushed.
