PCR.- Support to the People’s War in India!

An international conference in support of the People’s War in India will be held on November 24 in Hamburg, Germany. A delegation from the PCR-RCP and the Partisan newspaper will take part in this important event, along with representatives from revolutionary parties and anti-imperialist organizations from a number of other countries.

As the organizers explain in the call they issued for the conference, India is often presented as an example of the benefits of capitalist development; in fact, the country is a hell for the popular masses: “While the wealth of the richest 53 people in the country is equal to 31% of GDP, 77% of the population live with an income of less than 20 rupees (approximately 40 cents) a day. Every day, 5,000 children die from starvation and malnutrition, that is almost two million child deaths per year.”

But the revolution is ongoing. Led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist), the people’s war is developing to a point it is now considered by the central government as the main threat to India’s national security. The people’s war mobilizes people by hundreds of thousands. It represents the hope of liberation for the popular masses.

The November 24 conference follows the International Week of Solidarity that was held last January. It is organized jointly by the International Committee of Support to People’s War in India and the Bündnis Gegen Imperialistische Aggression (Alliance Against Imperialist Aggression) from Germany. Its main objective is to foster support for the revolutionary masses in India and for their movement, which off which too little is known outside of South Asia.
