CPI(Maoist) Information Bulletin

— A Revolutionary Publication Banned in India

      Up until December 2007 the magazine People’s March provided information about the Maoist movement and developing revolution in India, which was of value to both supporters of this revolution and also to many who just wanted to follow what was happening there. But the Indian government banned and suppressed People’s March at that time, and an information void developed.

      In the spring of 2008 revolutionaries in India began publishing a new journal to fill this void, the CPI(Maoist) Information Bulletin. While the precise legal status of this bulletin is unknown to us at this time, it seems almost certain that the Indian government must consider it to be an “illegal publication” and seeks to suppress it. Because we support the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press, and the right of the people to openly express their ideas—even if reactionary governments don’t approve and resort to fascist-like methods to try to stop it—we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET are also making issues of this bulletin available here.

      This bulletin is in PDF format, and the newest issues are listed first.

      Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with the Communist Party of India (Maoist), or with any other party in India or any other country for that matter. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to the CPI(Maoist) or to any other party. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both India and internationally to read the views and publications of this and all other parties and organizations. For this reason we do object to the suppression of the views and ideas put forward by the CPI(Maoist) by the undemocratic central and state governments of India. And for this reason alone we are making copies of many CPI(Maoist) documents available on this site, documents which the authorities in India wish to suppress and keep from the people.

      Also, we ask visitors to this site to please don’t ask us to try to contact the CPI(Maoist) for them. We have no way of doing that. Thank you.
