A danza do xenocidio na India. Un artigo del compañeiro Adolfo Naya en Praza Pública

A danza do xenocidio na India.
Adolfo Naya*

Ver militares e policías indios bailando e celebrando a matanza de 39 maoístas -todas e todos pertencentes a comunidades Adivasis-, ao ritmo da popular canción Haryanvi de Sapna Choudhary, amosa como parte da humanidade está chegando a niveis de dexeneración tal que, se non cambiamos este mundo, estamos abocados á definitiva barbarie, como xa dixera Rosa Luxemburgo.
Mentres o río se tinguía de vermello polo sangue de máis de 15 corpos que flotaban nel, lembrando aqueles tempos das ditaduras chilena e arxentina, os militares, embriagados de poder, bailaban a danza macabra do xenocidio contra o seu pobo. Un pobo que está disposto a loitar e morrer para defender a súa terra, os seus bosques e os seus recursos naturais contra o imperialismo e o capitalismo burocrático, e que non está disposto a vivir de xeonllos. Pero esta danza é a verdadeira cara do Goberno indio, un goberno xenocida que celebra bailando a morte do seu pobo.
Segundo informan organizacións de dereitos humanos, o 22 de abril 64 policías dos comandos C-60 e paramilitares dispararon con morteiros contra 16 maoístas na xungla de Karnasur, na área de Bhamragod, no este de Maharashtra. O 23 de abril, os comandos de policía mataron outros 6 maoístas na selva de Rajaram Khandla, na zona de Jimalgatta do distrito de Gadchiroli. Posteriormente, o 24 de abril, a policía atopou máis de 15 corpos de supostos maoístas no río Indravati. Destas 39 persoas mortas, 20 son mulleres.
O Goberno indio mantén unha guerra contra o seu pobo a través dunha estratexia clásica de contrainsurxencia  denominada “Corazóns e Mentes” (Gerald Templer, 1951), e que na India é denominada Operación “Caceria Verde”. Unha das tácticas máis comúns practicadas nesta estratexia de contrainsurxencia son os “falsos encontros”. Asasinatos de militantes, líderes sociais, activistas ou poboación civil, onde se teatraliza por parte das forzas armadas ou bandas paramilitares un enfrontamento armado -como sucedeu os días 22 e 23 de abril-; ou mesmo disfrazando á vítima co uniforme da guerrilla e e colocando unha arma ao seu carón, para deste xeito lexitimar  a súa morte como un acto de defensa propia, cando do que se trata é dun asasinato sen escrúpulos enmarcado na estratexia de eliminación dos e das militantes e do seu apoio social, así como da creación do “medo”.
No informe Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2014 sobre Dereitos Humanos na India, o Departamento de Estado dos Estados Unidos define estes “encontros” da seguinte maneira:
“As “mortes en encontros” é un termo empregado para describir a execución extraxudicial de presuntos delincuentes ou insurxentes polas forzas de seguridade e a policía, ocorridos en áreas de conflito.”
O Departamento de Estado estadounidense deixa moi claro o que, tanto as organizacións de dereitos humanos como os maoístas, teñen denunciado reiteradamente como “falsos encontros”. Esta práctica xenocida por parte do Estado pretende lexitimar o xenocidio, buscando dar a imaxe de que está a librar unha guerra xusta contra terroristas e antinacionalistas.
A matanza de 39 maoístas polas forzas especiais do goberno fascista hinduista de Primeiro Ministro Modi os días 22 e 23 de abril de 2018, confirma o plan xenocida dun goberno que se agocha baixo o manto da Operación “Caceria Verde” para exterminar a guerrilla maoísta e exercer a violencia de estado contra aquelas persoas que non aceptan unha sociedade divida en clases, en castas e sometida baixo o patriarcado.

Protest fake encounter killing of Gadchiroli.

 
 
The Indian state’s war on its most impoverished and marginalized populace in the form of Operation Green Hunt is now continuing for almost a decade killing hundreds of Adivasis in the vast forest areas of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Maharastra, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana and Bengal. Initiated by the former UPA government, the operation reached a new height in terms of violence and brutality during the rule of present communal fascist government led by BJP. The intensity of the war has escalated in leaps and bounds with the declaration of the present government to “flush out” the Maoists before 2021.
In the recent incident in Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra, at least 39 Maoist activists are reported to be killed by the security forces in two different “encounters”, while there is no casualty on the other side. The first encounter took place near Kasansur village in Tadgaon Police station area of Gadchiroli. The Maoist activists went to the village to attend a wedding ceremony, the police surrounded them while having the breakfast and killed 31 of them. Although the police claimed it to be a gun battle between the two sides, some important questions remain unanswered, as in a gun battle one side lost 31 people and the other side remained unharmed.
According to the police, the second “encounter” took place at Nainer forest near Rajaram Khandla in Aheri taluka, but local tribals failed to recall hearing that many gunshots. The Times of India reports,
“Though senior officers claimed it was a genuine gun battle, there are speculations about it in the hamlets surrounding Nainer. TOI on a visit in the remote region met tribals of Nainer and eight hamlets in a range of five kilometres. Starting from Rajaram Khandla, TOI visited Korepalli, Kapevancha, Korchepalli before taking a U-turn for Pallekasa, Madgu and Nainer passing through the forest trails.
A family at Kopevancha claimed to have heard only couple of gunshots. Another prominent tribal of that hamlet also said he could not recall hearing continuous bullet shots in the forest. Police have claimed they came under “heavy and indiscriminate fire” from Naxalites.
A villager from Pallekasa said he spotted a police vehicle pass through but returning soon. “I had seen the vehicle go but it did not leave the village. We heard that there were bodies in the vehicle,” he said.”
Killing the political activists and dissenting voices in staged encounters is nothing new in India, the Indian state has always openly sided with the corporate capitalists in waging war on its people. The state and central government act as active henchmen of the corporates to facilitate land grab and mineral loot destroying the lives of thousands of Adivasis. In this process they are determined to suppress all the resistance movements and Operation Green Hunt is their license to kill the Adivasis who oppose the unjust development process, protest the state oppression and are determined to protect their ancestral heritages. Clearly, the Indian state sees the Maoists as a severe threat to the investment climate rather than a security threat to the nation.
Bastar Solidarity Network (Kolkata Chapter) condemns this mass killing in Gadchiroli and demands judicial probe of the incident. We appeal to all the democratic individuals and organisations to join hand against this vicious design and build resistance against Indian state’s war on people.

Comunicado do Comité Internacional de Apoio á Guerra Popular na India (CIAGPI): nova masacre do goberno de Modi contra campesiños da India.



Una nueva masacre en una falsa confrontación perpetrada por las fuerzas del estado fascista de la India. Los maoístas asesinados en Gadchiroli eran indígenas 

Movilización de denuncia y solidaridad siempre que sea posible y en todas las formas posibles

Entre el 22 y el 23 de abril, no menos de 37 presuntos maoístas fueron masacrados, después de haber sido rodeados por la policía y las fuerzas paramilitares. La masacre podría ser todavía mayor. Del río Indravati han aparecido cadáveres varias horas después de los asesinatos y las aguas podrían devolver a otros. Además, el distrito ha sido completamente aislado por la policía y las fuerzas paramilitares continúan las redadas ilegales y las persecuciones de los pueblos

Tampoco, como en otras tantas ocasiones anteriores, sabemos cuántos de ellos eran realmente maoístas e iban armados y cuántos simples aldeanos.

Lo cierto es que no hubo un verdadero choque armado, sino un ataque sorpresa con lanzagranadas, mientras los hombres agredidos desayunaban o descansaban.

Lo cierto es que se trata de la enésima masacre de la sangrienta y despiadada guerra contra el pueblo que el estado indio ha desatado.

La policía publicó un video que mostraba a los soldados celebrando la "victoria" y bailando entre los cadáveres. Que la ira y la indignación contra esta masacre bárbara y el régimen fascista y genocida que la ordenó se muestren en todo el mundo.

Esta masacre es parte de la operación Green Hunt - una gigantesca y prolongada operación de represión y aniquilación de la lucha armada y de la lucha de masas en general lanzada por el estado indio, hoy a cargo del régimen hindú-fascista de Modi. Como parte de esta operación en su tercera fase, hay matanzas, deportación de poblaciones, destrucción, violaciones en masa y olas masivas y sistemáticas de detenciones y desapariciones, que afectan el campo y a las ciudades, universidades y movimientos de masas, en continua violación sistemática de los derechos humanos. Esto significa más de 10.000 presos políticos, incluyendo algunas figuras intelectuales, como el Prof. Saibaba, artistas, abogados, juristas, líderes estudiantiles y, por supuesto, algunos líderes maoístas de prestigio, como Cabades Gandhi, Ajith y otros. Con esta nueva masacre se intenta en vano detener la rebelión de las masas indias y la guerra popular dirigida por el PCI maoísta

Honramos a los mártires de Godchiroli, caídos al servicio de la grandiosa y gloriosa lucha por la liberación de las masas indias que, desde la 'revuelta de Naxalbari hace 50 años y hasta hoy, nunca se ha detenido y avanza indomable hacia la victoria.

¡Organizamos protestas ante embajadas y consulados de la India y pongamos en marcha iniciativas solidarias en todas partes!

¡Ayudemos y apoyemos el Spring Thunder Tour, una campaña prolongada que ha de llegar al mayor número de países de Europa y del mundo!

Se necesitan iniciativas masivas para lograr un apoyo poderoso y un llamativo movimiento de protesta contra el régimen fascista hindú de Modi al servicio del imperialismo.

¡Detengan las matanzas y la represión!, !No al Green Hunt!

!Libertad para todos los presos políticos encerrados en prisiones indias!

India:"Strongly condemn the harassment of Rona Wilson, Public Relations Secretary of CRPP, and others in the name of ‘search operations’


Dende o Comité Galego de apoio a Guerra Popular na India sumamonos a condea do acoso e rexistros que perpetrou a policia de Pune contra activistas solidarios cos presos políticos. Toda a nosa solidariedade dende Galiza.
 
"Strongly condemn the harassment of Rona Wilson, Public Relations Secretary of CRPP, and others in the name of ‘search operations’

As part of a shocking search operation conducted by the Pune (Maharashtra) police on April 17, 2018, at the residences of various activists in Maharashtra, the home of the CRRP Public Relations Secretary, Rona Wilson was also searched in Delhi. The Committee for Release of Political Prisoners (CRPP) strongly condemns the police raids in the residences of peoples activists in the strongest words.

At around 6.00 a.m in the morning, the Pune (Maharashtra) police conducted simultaneous raids at the homes of prominent activists in Maharashtra namely Sudhir Dhavale (Dalit activist, Republican Panthers), Harshali Potdar (Activist, Republican Panthers), Ramesh Gaychor, Jyoti Jagtap, Sagar Gorkhe, Rupali Jadhav and Dhawala Dhengle (all Kabir Kala Manch activists) allegedly in relation to the violence that ensued after the bi-centenary celebrations of the battle of Bhima-Koregaon on 31 Decemeber 2018 and the subsequent bandh. Alongside, Pune Assistant Commissioner of Police, Ganesh Gawade, and Nagpur DCP, Suresh Bawche, searched the residence of prominent people’s lawyer, Surendra Gadling.

On 31st December 2017, an Elgar Parishad was organised to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Bhima-Koregaon which was attended by thousands who gathered to raised their voice against the forces of Bramanical Hindutva Fascism. On the following day, that is, 1st January 2018, a mob carrying saffron flags instigated by Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote attacked the masses and activists who had gathered for the commemoration. It should be noted that instead of taking timely action against those who incited and perpetrated violence that ensued after the Elgar Parishad, the state machinery has chosen to devote its time and attention to target and harass activists and lawyers who have been speaking against the anti-people policies of the government. Both the main forces behind the pre-meditated violence on 1st January 2018, Sambhaji Bhide and Milind Ekbote, are right wing activists closely connected with the ruling BJP and the Sangh Parivar. The police forces have failed to arrest Sambhaji Bhide in connection with this case. Rather, they seem interested in conjuring up an elaborate tale of how the songs of peoples’ resistance sung by activists at the commemoration on 31st December were deliberately intended to incite violence! Allegedly under the same pretext of investigating the Bhima Koregaon incident, a team of Pune police led by Deputy Commissioner of Police Pravin Munde and investigating officer, Shivaji Pawar searched the residence of Rona Wilson in Delhi by arbitrarily trying to frame him under the Sections 153 a, 117, 505 1 (b), 34 of the IPC. The police has seized his laptop, phone, books and some money from his residence under the pretext of this arbitrary raid.

Rona Wilson has been an activist for several years, advocating for the cause of political prisoners all over India. As Public Relations Secretary of the CRPP, he has been at the forefront of organising numerous conventions against the unconstitutional nature of draconian laws like UAPA and AFSPA, and against the arbitrary use of death penalty, specifically against Muslims and Dalit minorities. He is an active voice in the campaign for the release of political prisoners condemning the anti-people ploys of the state machinery for arbitrarily persecuting minorities and marginalised sections.

That these raids are happening at a time when voices of Dalit resistance are transforming into an avalanche of resistance against the anti-people policies of the state indicates the deliberate attempt by the powers that be to stifle all voices of protest. Moreover, it exposes the brazen vengeance of the state against Dalit upsurge organising against the unbridled loot and plunder of resources by imperialist capital aided by the forces of Hindutva Fascism. By targeting activists and peoples lawyers, the state is blatantly trying to snuff out even voices of defense from political prisoners. It must be understood that violence that ensued in Bhima Koregaon is being used as an alibi by the ruling classes to browbeat activists and lawyers who have been fighting for the people into silence. These pre-meditated raids reflect the desperation of the increasingly police state and its growing tendency within the executive to frame activists and lawyers under false charges and keep them in confinement under prolonged incarceration.



It must also be highlighted that this arbitrary and illegal search has come at a time when CRPP has been able to gather public opinion against the conviction of Dr. GN Saibaba, Hem Mishra, Prashant Rahi, Vijay Tirki, Mahesh Tirki and Pandu Narote. The Gadchiroli Sessions Court, in its 827 page judgment, inadvertently exposes the workings of a national security state which uses the instrument of law to thwart dissent. It is not a coincidence that when retired judges and prominent lawyers have agreed to speak at a convention (proposed for April 22, 2018) condemning the Gadchiroli Sessions Court judgement, the state machinery has used the pretext of the Bhima Koregaon incident to harass Wilson in order to divert the attention of the public and stop their mobilisation against the judgement of Gadchiroli Sessions Court.

The CRPP strongly condemns the arbitrary police raid conducted at the residence of Rona Wilson and other activists from Maharashtra which is nothing but a tactic to intimidate activists and prevent them from mobilising people and raising voice against the violence perpetrated by the state.

AND: Índia - Saibaba sofre maus tratos na prisão


Reproduzimos a seguir importante denúncia feita no Jornal A Nova Democracia sobre as condições desumanas da prisão ilegal do ativista democrático G.N. Saibaba nas mãos do velho estado indiano.
