Documents and Statements of the
Communist Party of Nepal — Maoist

      This page is devoted to making available documents and statements of the Communist Party of Nepal — Maoist. The CPN—Maoist was formed in June 2012 as a split-off of the more revolutionary and left-wing elements from the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) which in 2006 abandoned the People’s War it had been leading with such great promise and became a reformist parliamentary party mired in hopelessly ineffective bourgeois politics. The first party congress of the CPN—Maoist took place in January 2013. (This was formally called the Seventh National Congress, for reasons of historical continuity.)

      The founding Chairman of the CPN—Maoist was Mohan Baidya (or Vaidya), who is also known as “Kiran”. Articles by Kiran and other leaders of the new party back when they were still part of the UCPN(Maoist) can be found at individual leaders of the UCPN(M).

      Unfortunately, the CPN-Maoist hasn't seemed to be able to develop a line that is very distinguishable from that of the UCPN(M), and there soon developed views within it that they should merge back into the UCPN(M). As of early 2015 it appears that this is now quite likely to happen eventually.

      However, the failure of the CPN-Maoist to develop a truly revolutionary line alarmed a major section of the new party, as has all the talk about rejoining the UCPN(M). Things came to a head in November 2014 when a section of the CPN-Maoist led by Netra Bikram Chand (“Biplav”) split to form a separate party with a very similar name: “CPN Maoist” (without the hyphen). It now appears that the revolutionary hopes of the Nepalese people may depend on this newest party.

      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 Nepal — Maoist, or with any other party in Nepal 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 CPN—Maoist or to any other party. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both Nepal and internationally to read the views and publications of this and all other parties and organizations. For this reason we do object to the de facto suppression of the views and ideas put forward by the CPN—Maoist. And for this reason alone we are making copies of many CPN—Maoist documents available on this site, along with those by many of its leaders, critics and other commentators.
