India- 50 years of Naxalbari: a path to alternative development

From Communist Blogs Network (RBC), and translated  by Google and សតិវ អតុ:

By Purnendu Sekhar Mukherjee, a former member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), and former political prisoner
 in which, as part of the 50th Anniversary of Naxalbari, explains:
"50 years of Naxalbari represent 50 years of the dream of building a new India", describing the policies applied by the Naxalites in these five decades.

Despite the propaganda of the government and the propaganda media of the large multinational corporations and of the local big bourgeoisie, the author states that "Naxalite politics not only involves taking state power through armed struggle, but also the construction of an alternative socioeconomic model by the people themselves, based on local needs and the collective decisions of the local population, not on the demands of international financial capital. " 

This document on Janatana Sarkar's policy outlines the fundamental lines of the future popular democratic government, underscoring the unbroken continuity with the path that Naxalbari showed in 1967, "in which guerrilla groups were formed by snatching arms from mercenary forces of landlords, in which people's courts were established to try the exploiters-oppressors, who proclaimed collective ownership of land and crops in the full struggle against the armies of the owners, who created cooperatives to store the grain. "

The main issue that arose in Naxalbari 50 years ago and which continues today with the Naxalita Revolution, led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist), and implemented by the policies of the Janatana Sarkar (local popular governments) in the zones controlled by the guerrilla, is that of the future society, the popular alternative model, even if exploitative capitalists try to emphasize violence as the main feature of Maoists. "know that if the people have the opportunity to experience the alternative model, it will be impossible for multinational financial capital to plunder the country's human and natural resources."

All this is described in this illustrative article by Purnendu Sekhar Mukherjee, of enormous interest for the knowledge of that still great unknown, the Naxalita Revolution, which was born 50 years ago in a recondite region of India, and that today has become a guide and model for the revolutionary popular struggle against imperialist capitalism all over the world.
