    Does anyone know where the documentary on the Peoples war in India is? Someone posted a link on the main Kasama site but I can’t find it now.

    Also there is something wrong with part 4 of the series.

    It says it’s not a movie when I try to open it.

    I think you’re referring to this:

    What party in India did that doc? It says CPI-ML but I’m not familiar with the different parties in that country.

    I know there is a MLM group correct? And the party that is involved in the government that calls itself Marxist. But who is this group?

    Anyone know of some useful documents that go over this stuff?

    Follow this link and look for the article called “rough notes on the Indian communist movement”

    Roughly: the CPI-ML is the name of the original Maoist party in India — the one that was led by Charu Mazumdar and that emerged out of the 1968 Naxalbari uprising.

    In the defeat of that movement, the original CPI-ML was crushed (or more precisely shattered) and many different groupings emerged in different parts of India. Some of the groupings today still call themselves CPI-ML (but many had additional defining names to clarify which grouping — so there is CPIML-Naxalbari, and CPIML-Liberation, and so on…) One of them, called the People’s War group was part of the merger (with MCC) that formed the CPI (Maoist).
