Support for the Maoist Indian revolution growing in countries across the World

Yes it's true! And it is only the beginning! From the International Committee 
support people's war India!

The Indian Express:

The CPI (Maoist) has emerged as a "role model" for the Communist movement
across the world, according to revolutionary groups based outside India
which have pledged support to it. The revelation could add to the worries of
the government, which considers the Maoist group as India's "biggest
internal security threat".
The support for CPI (Maoist) was voiced at the first International
Conference in Support of the People's War in India, which was attended by
delegates of Communist parties from more than two dozen countries. It was
held exactly a year ago in Hamburg on November 24, 2012 to commemorate the
first death anniversary of Maoist leader Mallojula Koteshwara Rao alias
Kishenji, who was killed in an encounter in West Bengal.
While senior members of the CPI (Maoist) have established contacts with
revolutionaries in other countries, it was the first time a major
international seminar was held to pledge support — financial, cultural and
strategic — to the outfit and emphasized their global strategic
The seminar was jointly organized by the International Committee to Support
the People's War in India and the Hamburg-based League Against Imperialist
Aggression. In fact, the Committee was formed in Paris in January 2010,
purely considering the strategic advantage the CPI (Maoist) lent to the
global movement. Now it has branches in several countries to support the CPI
According to copies of speeches and presentation made by the delegates,
available with The Indian Express, the CPI (Maoist) has become a "red
linchpin" for the Communist movement across the globe. "The victory of the
people's war in India would change the global balance of strength between
imperialism and oppressed nations. The people's war in India is an important
common point of reference for all of us, it is a red linchpin for the
international Communist movement," the Communist Party of Austria said in
its presentation.
"Let us learn today from the example of the Indian comrades, that the
ideological struggle and the struggle to establish a correct and red
political line are the basic principles by which the struggle to build the
Maoist Communist Party of the proletariat must be carried out," it said.
The Revolutionary Communist Party of Canada said the CPI (Maoist) is a "good
example of a revolutionary party that has been able to break with many of
the sectarian tendencies in the revolutionary movement. We hope that we can
all learn from this experience".
The delegates noted that while in other countries "the struggle against
imperialism is only a resistance without any perspective", the Indian
Mao-sits are "worth taking a look".
Disclosing the strategic aid CPI (Maoist) receives from abroad, the
delegates said "concrete steps" have been made to "coordinate" the forces
who support it.
"The innovative way in which the CPI (Maoist) is able to handle the immense
diversity of the contradictions in India... and the way in which this party
fights for the unification with the people's war... is an example that the
highest attention should be given to," League Against the Imperial
Aggression said.
The delegates said posters of Kishenji and slain Maoist spokesperson Azad
have found their way in over 30 countries, including Colombia, Canada,
Italy, Sweden, Austria, Spain, France, Germany, Turkey and Italy as they are
building organizations to mobilize support.
The groups shared their experiences of how they are extending support. The
Revolutionary Front in Defense of The People's Right of Brazil gave several
instances when they held agitations outside the Indian consulate extending
support to the CPI (Maoist). Maoist Communist Party of France said it
distributed thousands of leaflets and posters in several universities.
While the CPI (Maoist) delegates could not attend the event, they sent a
written message that was read out. "Despite the efforts of the enemy, we
grow in strength in the guerrilla areas and expand in new areas," it said,
and expressed appreciation for the support.
