Political resolution adopted by the 5th Conference of CCOMPOSA, March 2011

On the Current Situation and Tasks

Since the 4th Conference of the Co-ordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisations of South Asia (CCOMPOSA) held in 2006, there have been significant developments in the world and in South Asia. These changes have given rise to both challenges and opportunities. Guided by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the unity among the constituents of CCOMPOSA and their joint activities will surely strengthen the revolutionary struggles and initiatives going on in the different countries of South Asia and be a catalyst in facing up to these challenges and seizing the opportunities. This has a significance going far beyond the boundaries of South Asia.

Press release of 5th CCOMPOSA Conference

Press Release of CCOMPOSA

The 5th Conference of the Co-ordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisations of South Asia (CCOMPOSA) was successfully completed in early March. The delegates took up analysis of the current political situation in order to identify its main features. They noted the fall out of the global crisis, the devastations it has caused among the masses, the wave of struggles in imperialist citadels triggered of by the crisis and the recent series of popular upsurges in Arab countries, apart from developments in South Asia such as the successful withstanding of Maoists in India of the state's counter-revolutionary offensive. The Conference observed that "though in an uneven way, the objective situation all over the world, including in the imperialist countries, is developing favourably for revolution. The main trend of revolution is strengthened. In comparison to the favourably developing objective situation and its demands, the subjective strength of the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties still lags. Nevertheless, greater attraction of people towards Marxism and socialism all across the world is a very positive sign. "

On Imperialist Aggression in Libya

Press Release:
Support the Struggling Masses of Arab Countries!
Imperialist Intervention can never be the Solution!
Condemn and Resist Imperialist Aggression in Libya!

The rebellious masses of Libya are locked in a bitter struggle against its dictator Gaddafi, facing his murderous suppression. This is a just struggle enjoying the support of people throughout the world. But the attacks done by the US, France, Britain, Italy and other imperialist powers in Libya are unjust. They must be condemned and opposed. Though this is being done under the pretext of saving the Libyan masses it is a war of aggression. Its main aim is to replace Gaddafi with a more suppliant ruler. It has nothing to do with supporting the masses. This is well exposed by the reality of their bombing Libya, while actively supporting the equally brutal suppression of the struggling masses in Bahrain which is home to the US military command in West Asia. The protests of the Indian government, along with those of Russia, China and Brazil must also be exposed and condemned as mere propagandist posturing. Instead of blocking the UN sanction for imperialist aggression, they had simply abstained. Thus they too connived in the preparation and execution of the present imperialist aggression in Libya.
The struggle in Libya is part of the great mass upheaval sweeping across the Arab world. It has already toppled dictators, long protected by imperialists, in Tunisia and Egypt. Many others are severely threatened. Though all the imperialists and reactionaries have publicly supported these struggles, the real fact is that they are deeply concerned. They worry that decades old relations of neocolonial domination set up in West Asia and North Africa will unravel. They know that these struggles reflect the deep anger of the masses against the existing exploitative, oppressive conditions in these countries. The yearning of the people for basic change is yet to arrive at distinct emancipatory programmatic positions. But their opposition to nominal changes, to the continuation of the old order in new forms, has persisted. This radical stream, with the potential to develop into revolution, is the one of greatest promise for the oppressed. It will be realized to the extent conscious Maoist intervention is possible. Meanwhile even as a potential possibility it threatens imperialism and reaction. Therefore one important aspect of the present imperialist intervention in Libya is that of threatening the struggling masses into ‘permissible’ limits of protest.

Joint May Day Statement 2011

People want revolution
Proletarians want the Party of the Revolution
Communists want internationalism and a new international organization

This year’s May Day comes at a time of unprecedented protests and uprisings all around the world. In the Arab world and Persian Gulf, the youth, the proletarians and the broad masses took to the streets and toppled or tried to topple, one after the other, the dictatorial regimes subservient to imperialism.
In the heart of the imperialist countries, working class struggles, general strikes, rebellions of students and youth are opposing the policy of reactionary governments and the development of a modern fascism aimed at shifting the burden of the crisis on to the backs of the masses, bringing layoffs, job insecurity, intensification of exploitation and attacks on education, health care and basic social services.
