A Shameful Silence at Year’s End

Where’s the internationalism?

by Mike Ely

2007-year-in-struggle-s-en.jpgThe RCP did their annual round up of the year in pictures in this issue of their newspaper Revolution. Go look.

Several things stand (to me) in this year-end ussue:

1) In the roundup of “the Year in Struggle,” literally no mention of the life-and-death struggle for revolution in south asia. (There no mention of Nepal, or India in particular — where Maoist forces have been waging difficult struggles.)

And there is no mention of other Maoists of the world at all (that I could find).

2) Also: There is no mention of the major leap in international communist unity and struggle represented by the “International Seminar” organized by the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) on the theme of “Imperialism and Proletarian Revolution in the 21st Century.”

End to Nepal’s Monarchy?

Posted by Rosa Harris on December 24, 2007

Under great pressure the government parties of Nepal have apparently agreed to end the monarchy and institute a republic. This comes after the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) had withdrawn from the government three months ago, and there was great speculation that they may restart the armed struggle (in the form of protracted peoples war or a final insurrection.)

I will comment on these developments elsewhere, but for now here is a news report from the NYT

India: Maoist Jailbreak

Posted by Rosa Harris on December 16, 2007

110 Maoists escape from Dantewada jail

RAIPUR: In a daring jailbreak, 299 inmates including 110 naxal
activists escaped from the Dantewada jail in Chattisgarh after prison
guards were overpowered in a planned action in which three guards and
two undertrials were injured during firing and clashes.

The incident happened around 4.35 PM when the inmates were being
served food after a lone naxalite commandar Sujit Kumar overpowered a
jail guard inside the prison and snatched his weapon.

Kumar then fired and injured three other guards, Dantewada jail
sources said. As many as 377 inmates are in the district prison, about
375 km from the state capital, which is located in a naxal infested area.

The naxals snatched six rifles of the guards and one wireless set
belonging before they fled.

Rahul Sharma, Superintendent of Police, Dantewada said the jail break
was a “pre-medidated conspiracy” hatched by the undertrials who were
mostly naxal supporters.

A search operation has been launched.
