Maria Sison !
We are stunned to know from the press that Joseph Maria Sison,
Chairman of the International League for People’s Struggle (ILPS),
was arrested in Utrecht of Netherlands on August 28, 2007 by the
Dutch police. It is learnt that he has been arrested by the Dutch
authorities under the fake charges that he ordered the murder of
the three individuals in the Philippines that were categorically
dismissed by the Phillipines High Court on July 11, 2007 because
of the lack of evidence. It is learnt that his residence has been
raided and his computers, CDs, DVDs and other personal belongings
were also seized by the Dutch police.
We feel that this act of the Netherlands government is politically
motivated and carried in order to appease the US backed puppet regime
of Arroyo in the Philippines. It is an act executed by the Netherlands
government in the insistence of US imperialism which is intervening
in the Philippines to suppress the people’s revolution of the Philippines
led by the Communist Party of Philippines (PCP) since over the last
35 years. But the US imperialist which is number one enemy of the
revolutionary and oppressed people of the world and the puppet regime
of the Philippines should know that the heroic people of the Philippines
will definitely abolish their anti-people rule and such coward acts
will not stop their march forward in capturing the state power.
Our Party, the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) expresses its unremitting
support to the people’s revolution of the Philippines led by the
We condemn this undemocratic act of the Dutch government of arresting
leader of the Philippines revolution by violating all international
norms of safe guarding the right of an individual. It is a shame
for a country which claims that it is one of those countries of
the world which gives lots of value to the democratic rights of
the people and respects the human rights.
We appeal to the Dutch government for the immediate and unconditional
release of the popular Filipino leader Joma Sison. We also make
a solemn call for all the revolutionary organizations and the masses
of the world to raise their voice that can pave the way for the
safe release of Joma Sison.
With revolutionary greetings
Chief of the International Bureau
Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)
Today many innocent people were killed and dozens of others were
injured by exploding serial bomb at different places in Kathmandu.
Our party strongly condemns and criticizes this cowardly, criminal,
and act against humanity. In whatever name or pretext this serious
crime was perpetrated, it is not difficult to understand that regressive
forces are behind it and the reason behind it is to obstruct the
present peace process and democratic and republic campaign and to
disrupt constituent assembly election. So, our party demands with
the government to seriously investigate the incident and to make
the findings public as well as to severely punish the elements that
are involved in it. Our party expresses deep sorrow for those who
have lost their life and expresses condolence to their family and
those who were injured in the designed bomb blast in public places
and public transport. Our party also demands with the government
to arrange the free treatment of those injured in the incident.

Appeal of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)
Republic be declared immediately to ensure the Constituent Assembly
Comprehensive round table conference be organized for proportional
Liberation seeking Nepalese people has been raising slogans for
the end of feudal monarchy and election of the Constituent Assembly
from about 60 years. During the great Peoples’ War under the leadership
of CPN (Maoist) and joint mass movement of, tens of thousands of
martyrs established this slogan in the National Political Agenda
by sacrificing their life. On the basis of the bitter experience
of the past when the feudal royalist elements repeatedly hatched
conspiracy to not to allow the constituent assembly election to
be held, CPN (Maoist) did hold till the last moment of the peace
process that only after declaring republic the constituent assembly
election should be held. However, due to the commitment of the parliamentary
parties to hold the election within 14th June, 2007, CPN (Maoist)
in spite of its serious doubt agreed to go to the Constituent Assembly
election by keeping the monarchy in suspension. But, alas! The history
again got repeated. According to the master plan of monarchy and
its foreign abettors, they made such an environment in which election
could not be held by spreading massacre, terror and anarchy in madhesh
and other parts of the country. Therefore, CPN (Maoist) once again
put forward and took stand for the demand of constituent assembly
that can only be held after the abolition of monarchy and establishing
republic and our party wrote the ‘note of decent’ regarding the
postponement of the election to November 22, 2007. In the insistence
of CPN (Maoist) only there was the second amendment of the constitution
for abolishing the monarchy by the two third majority of the interim
legislature. But, events after that are proving that the situation
of anarchy, massacre and terror still exists as the pre Jestha (June
14th) scenario in Madesh and other places. Even after this monarchy
and retrogressive elements are still active. In order to disrupt
the constituent assembly election armed gangs are mushrooming every
passing day. In this situation, there would be no greater lie, hypocrisy
and insincerity than to say that constituent assembly election can
be held by keeping the monarchy in place. Right now, the monarchy
is the main obstacle to hold the election. Therefore, the environment
for the constituent assembly election can be created only by completely
abolishing monarchy from interim legislature and for this it is
an inevitable necessity of today to carry on the struggle from all
the fronts, the government, legislature and the street.
In addition to the conspiracy by national and international reactionary
forces against the constituent assembly election objectively another
important adverse reason for the conducive environment for constituent
assembly election is the lack of guarantee of proportional representation
of different oppressed indigenous - tribal, madeshi, women and oppressed
caste people. During the peace process CPN (Maoist) had fought for
the restructuring of the state in federal form, and proportional
representation but especially due to the insistence of Nepali Congress
and also due to the fear of the obstruction of the whole peace process
we were compelled to be flexible for the agreement. However, the
series of incidence after that and especially the incident of Madesh
have conformed that without ensuring the proportional representation
of all oppressed class, nationality, region, sex the constituent
assembly election is not possible to be held and should not even
be held. Because constituent assembly election is not a periodical
parliamentary election but it is a body that makes the main law
of the land for long term and if there can’t be the proportional
representation of different sects of people in it, there is the
possibility of emergence of conflict of serious nature. In this
situation, by organizing a comprehensive round table conference
of the representatives of all the agitating Madeshi, indigenous-tribal,
oppressed, women, the civil society and the political parties etc
a common consensus should be built up which is the another important
basis to ensure the election of the constituent assembly. In stead
of doing this, to go on taking initiative to negotiate with all
the daily mushrooming outfits and wasting time and energy really
means in substance only to endanger the constituent assembly election
Another important reason for not having conducive environment for
the constituent assembly election in the country is because all
the provisions in the Comprehensive Peace Accord are not firmly
and promptly implemented and no work was done to create the feeling
of change in the life of people even after the 10 years of people’s
war and 19 days of historical mass movement.
Especially not providing any relief to the martyrs of the people’s
war and the mass movement, not having proper treatment to the wounded,
not finding out the real situation of the disappeared, not managing
the Peoples’ Liberation Army properly, not taking initiative to
implement the fundamental rights of the people in education, health,
employment, right for food according to the provision of the interim
constitution, instead of running the interim government through
consensus, running it like one party or multiparty system of the
past etc, the situation is increasingly becoming repulsive rather
than attractive for the people to go on for the election of constituent
assembly. Apart from that different international reactionary forces
are spreading unwanted activities and interference by taking advantage
of this transitional period which has created a great danger for
the national sovereignty and glory.
In the whole the country is facing a great crisis. If the existing
wide spread situation of obstacle, confusion, doubt, anarchy is
not confronted by the forward moving way then according to the historical
law there is a great danger of the country again returning to regression
and in a fierce conflict. If the country again returns to conflict
that will be dreadfully fatal, destructive and might create the
risk for the existence of the nation. So, all true patriotic, democratic,
republican and leftist forces who favour peace, democracy, progression,
it has become a necessity to carry on the struggle to create minimum
atmosphere for the sake of ensuring the election of the constituent
assembly and making the peace long lasting.
The 22-point prerequisite to ensure the election of the Constituent
1. The monarchy and monarchist elements have launched organized
destructions and violence in different parts of the country conspiringly
not to let the constituent assembly election to be held. So the
abolition of the monarchy and the establishment of the republic
should be immediately declared from the interim parliament. Prior
to the declaration the parties including the Nepali Congress who
have not yet formally decided anything about the republic must publicly
clarify their position on monarchy.
2. As greed upon in the Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA) the property
of the late King Birendra and his family and the whole property
possessed by King Gynandra in the capacity of being the king must
be nationalized for which an effective step must be taken and there
should be speedy implementation.
3. The Nepal Army kept at Narayanhiti palace until now for its security
must immediately be taken away and a simple type of security arrangement
has to be made to Gynendra and his family.
4. All the guilty persons indicated by Rayamajhi Commission must
be persecuted as sternly as possible at the earliest even by promulgating
5. According to the spirit of the interim constitution Nepal Army
must immediately democratized by constituting a security council.
The integration between the Nepal Army and the Peoples Liberation
Army has to be accelerated through a ‘special committee’.
6. A comprehensive round table conference has to be immediately
organized to ensure the proportional representation of all classes,
nationalities, regions, Madhesis, women, Dalit and all minority
communities in the constituent assembly election.
7. The interim government must be run according to the principle
of consensus and the common minimum programme, in stead of being
run on the old way of single party and majority.
8. The local body has to be formed on the basis of agreement in
order to ease and simplify the election of the constituent assembly
election, to ensure the involvement of the mass of the people to
the grass root level and to accelerate the developmental works.
9. The appointments of the ambassadors to different countries, university
executives, Human Rights Commission, the chief commissioner of Commission
for the investigation of the abuse of authority (CIAA) and its commissioners
and the organization of the high level monitoring commission must
be done by consensus.
10. All criminals responsible for the murders after the comprehensive
Peace Accord including the criminals of Gaur Massacre must immediately
be punished as sternly as possible and appropriate compensation
must be given to the victimized families.
11. In course of the people’s war, the hostages confined in the
jail cells on Nepal and India on false allegations must all be released
together and all cases filed against the Maoist leaders and cadres
must be cancelled.
12. The families of all martyrs, who sacrificed their lives in course
of the people’s war, must immediately be supported as an immediate
relief of at least hundred thousand rupees per person. All injured
persons in course of the people’s war and people’s movement must
get all treatment from the government.
13. A high level probe committee must immediately be formed for
finding out the facts of all disappeared during the people’s war
and for the recommendation of the legal action against those who
are found guilty through the investigation.
14. An effective and special initiation must be taken on the government
level for the correction of weakness and serious carelessness in
the proper management of the cantonments of the People’s Liberation
15. The decision of interim government about providing monthly three
thousand rupees per person for the members of the PLA has not yet
been implemented and thus it must be executed without any delay.
16. Education, health, employment and food sovereignty have been
accepted as the fundamental rights of all people in the Comprehensive
Peace Accord and in the interim constitution, so a legal and executive
step must proceed for its practical application.
17. A high level land reform commission must immediately be formed
in order to execute provisions of the comprehensive Peace Accord
regarding for the “execution of scientific land reform program by
appropriating the feudal land ownership.
18. The persons who made the unlimited earning of property through
corruption by holding government post for personal benefit must
be rigorously persecuted, based on the provision of the Comprehensive
Peace Accord, for which the present constitutional and governmental
sectors have proved to be quite incapable and incompetent, so a
special body must be formed in order to proceed the actions against
the corrupt ones.
19. A high level commission for the advanced restructuring of the
state must be formed in order to proceed forward towards the federal
structure of the nation with the rights of self-determination and
the power of autonomy to the nationalities and regions.
20. The unwanted move of internal destructionist activities, inferences
in the internal affairs by the various foreign reactionary powers
within the country, must be stopped with rigorous actions and any
treaties, negotiations and understandings of long term importance,
including the water resources must not be done until the constituent
assembly election is held. National independence, sovereignty and
geographical integrity must be fully safeguarded.
21. The genuine demands of the peasants, laborers, students, public
servants, dalits, women, indigenous tribes, nationalities, Madhesis,
industrialists and businessmen and media workers and various other
classes and masses who are in the movements must be fulfilled, and
a conducive environment should be created for the involvement of
all in the constituent assembly election.
22. The Comprehensive Peace Accord that is held between the Communist
Party of Nepal (Maoist) and the government of Nepal must be fully
implemented in practice immediately.

Press Communiqué circulated to the Press Conference
Dear Journalists present here,
First of all, we heartily welcome the entire journalists and other
masses present in this press conference organized to make public
the important decisions adopted by the recently concluded Fifth
Expanded Meeting of the central committee of our glorious party
the CPN (Maoist) that has been playing a leading role in the campaign
of building a new democratic republic of Nepal. We are immensely
feeling glory and pleasure to have had this opportunity of publicizing
here the summary of the historic fifth expanded meting decisions
synthesized as 'great unity and great victory'.
1. The latest fifth expanded meeting of the central committee organized
in the chain of expanded meetings that had had immense importance
in the history of the CPN (Maoist) had been accomplished grandiosely
from August 3 to August 8, 2007 in Balaju Industrial Area, Kathmandu.
a) The meeting was inaugurated amid applause by Chairman Comrade
Prachanda by lighting a lamp at 4 PM on the third of August 2007
in the Martyrs Memorial Building. In the inaugural session that
had begun by paying heartfelt homage to the great martyrs of the
great people's war and the mass movement, various senior comrades
and advisors of the party, shedding light on the importance of the
expanded meeting, had presented meaningful statements.
b) Altogether there were 2,174 comrades comprised of the central
committee members of the party to the secretariat members of the
district committee, to the general branch secretary of the PLA,
central office bearers of mass and frontal organizations and invited
members. Of them, there were 1,672 comrades from 75 districts, 455
from 7 divisions of the PLA, 40 from India, 5 from Europe and 2
from Hong Kong. It was the biggest gathering so far in our party
c) There had been discussions in 42 groups over the political proposal
presented by Chairman Comrade Prachanda all the day long of August
4 and morning session of August 5 while the group leaders started
presenting their comments and suggestions from the day session of
August 5 and it was carried on to the evening of August 6. Chairman
Comrade Prachanda clarified all the day long of August 7 the spirit
of the document and replied the questions arisen therefrom. The
document was unanimously adopted in the very evening.
d) All the day long of August 8, there had been a concluding program
in which 42 comrades presented opinion based on their feeling. Chairman
Comrade Prachanda, saying that the historic fifth expanded meeting
was a meeting of great unity and great victory, concluded at 5:30
evening of the very day. At the last, different sky-piercing slogans
e) The PLA and the YCL had provided security to the meeting and
the central command had made the whole logistical arrangement. Samana
and Sen-Chyang family had presented various cultural programs in
2. The central question of the expanded meeting was the proposal
"Unite to make a new ideological advance and a new revolutionary
movement" presented by Chairman Comrade Prachanda. There had
been very high and profound democratic discussions among the representatives
divided in 42 groups over the proposal and important amendments
were suggested. By incorporating the suggestions, the proposal was
at the last adopted unanimously. The important aspects of the document
are as follows.
a) There are three important sections in the document. Important
ideological and political questions have been discussed in the first
part. In the second part, the past movement and peace-negotiation
has been reviewed. And in the third, light has been shed on the
forthcoming tactic and the party plan.
b) In the context of discussing "Some fundamental theoretical
questions" emphasis has been given upon the question of distinguishing
the difference between the Marxist and opportunist outlook mainly
on compromise, reform and revolution, and revolutionaries are instructed
to remain resolute in MLM and Prachanda Path by way of struggling
against right capitulationism, centrist vacillationism and 'left'
adventurism. In the present backdrop of negotiations and peaceful
development of revolution, the question in which the revolutionaries
should specially prioritize ideological struggle is against the
rightist tendency of "enjoying in the status quo, conceiving
of compromise and reform as everything and refusing to propel the
revolution forward" has been mentioned in the document. Likewise,
it has been mentioned in the document that the struggle against
the centrist opportunism that surfaces in different forms in which
one always falls prey to vacillation between right and wrong, talks
of revolution but practices right reformism and shows sense of disappointment,
frustration and escape must not be undervalued. Also, the document
has cautioned the revolutionaries to remain cautious towards the
danger of 'left' phrase-mongering and adventurism that "Without
having concrete analysis of the concrete situation subjectively
opposes all kinds of compromises".
c) Discussing the strategy and tactic of revolution, it has been
clarified in the document that the party, going ahead with flexible
tactic and firm strategy of democratic revolution, has synthesized
a slogan of all party conference, interim government and constituent
assembly election as a political tactic while arriving at the historic
second national conference accomplished in 2001 and the same with
modification has been carried on till now from the Chunwang Meeting
held in 2005. Likewise, in relation to tactical slogan of democratic
republic, quoting the decision of Chunwang meeting the document
says, "Party has regarded the democratic republic neither in
the form of bourgeois parliamentarian republic nor in the form of
the new democratic republic. With an extensive restructuring of
the state power, this republic will play a role of transitional
multiparty republic as to resolve the problems related to class,
nation, region and sex."
d) Likewise, in the context of assessing peace-negotiations and
the events following it, the CPN (Maoist), which had not incorporated
itself in the old parliamentary main stream, but had, preserving
the achievements of 10 years of people's war, participated in a
transitional state of compromise to institutionalize through constituent
assembly the new type of democratic republic but now it has been
concluded that the major parliamentarian parties leading the government,
going against the spirit of 12-point understanding, have destroyed
the basis of unity with the CPN (Maoist). In particular, "Although
it had been said that army would be confined at barracks and PLA
at the cantonments as to make the interim state a neutral one as
far as possible and all of the decisions to run the state would
be taken up in consensus, the theoretical, political and moral basis
for the CPN (Maoist) to stay in government is getting to an end
because the state in the present transitional period has been tried
to run as the state of feudal, bureaucrat and comprador bourgeois"
has been the important conclusion of the resolution. So cautioning
seriously the forces that lead the interim government the proposal
says, "The CPN (Maoist) will have no alternative to go to movement
by quitting the government, if it is not guaranteed to ensure running
of the interim government in accordance with the spirit of the agreement,
bring an end to terror and regressive feudal conspiracy taking place
against the constituent assembly election by declaring republic,
take up actions against the criminals involved in a series of killings
in Madhesh, publicize the state of disappeared citizens, impartially
distribute relief to the families of martyrs, push forward the process
of scientific land reform according to the spirit of the interim
constitution, take up effective steps to stop killings, conspiracies
and terror against the CPN (Maoist) and treat the PLA respectfully".
e) Summing up that the party tactic from the 12-point understanding
to the participation in the interim government was correct and politically
advantageous; however, in the resolution serious self-criticism
has also been made on behalf of the party for some mistakes and
weaknesses committed in this course.
1) In the later part and mainly after the Gaur-massacre, there was
a mistake on the way how should the party have made coordination
between compromise and struggle. It was the main aspect of the party
2) While making compromises with the parliamentarian parties masses
should have been informed of those agreements and mobilized along
them as far as possible. Especially when party failed to inform
the masses of the struggle that the party had kept up on the federal
state system and proportional election till the last minute inside
Baluwatar room, it provided opportunity for the reactionaries and
opportunists to launch a campaign against the party by spreading
confusion that Maoists left their agenda on Madhesh.
3) After joining the interim parliament and interim government,
there have been some limitations on the way how should have we gone
with preparation, plan and the spirit in struggles to carry out
minimum possible tasks for the masses.
4) Likewise, there have been weaknesses on the questions like inner
party communication, external propaganda, work in Madhesh, economic
f) In the resolution, decisions have been taken up to develop special
policies and plans to repeatedly proletarianize, rectify and consolidate
the party and develop new unity on the new basis in agreement with
party's new line and complexities. Accordingly, the property of
all the central committee members has been publicized to initiate
party rectification from the central level and supervision from
broad cadres and even the masses on it has been anticipated. Also,
it has been decided to have extensive changes in the party's organizational
structure and division of labor and launch a campaign to build organizations
up to villages.
g) The expanded meeting has also adopted different resolutions over
some important and timely issues. Like for example: resolution on
Madhesh, resolution on propaganda and publication, resolution on
mass organizations, resolution on national and regional fronts,
resolution on revolutionary polarization and republican front, resolution
on international communist movement, resolution on three weapons
of revolution etc.
h) Naturally, the most important and an issue of people's concern
has been the evaluation of present situation and in accordance with
it party's forthcoming tactic and plan. The document has appraised
today's political situation as "to have been manifested in
the form of a very fluid and serious revolutionary crisis."
In the same manner, it has been pointed out that a situation of
triangular contradiction among feudal royalist forces, status quoist
bourgeois parliamentarian forces and revolutionary democratic forces
exists and all of them are trying to hold sway of their own. The
fact that has been emphasized on is that the future of constituent
assembly election depends upon the relative supremacy of these three
forces and the revolutionary democratic forces should set up the
sequence of their strategy and tactic in compliance with it. Pointing
out that the country is now at the frontier of a big revolutionary
possibility and an awful accident it has been mentioned in the document
that revolutionary democratic forces, by appraising it correctly,
should take up proper tactical steps. For that, party has emphasized
on the need to create a broad mass movement by keeping up a strong
unity with the republicans and left forces. For the reason that
the domestic and foreign reactionary powers are not in favor of
constituent assembly election but are conspiring to avoid it by
laying the blame on the CPN (Maoist) and mobilize army in the name
of law and order, the resolution concludes that the mass movement
"Should be propelled forward as a serious initiative to build
up suitable environment and prerequisites in favour of the forthcoming
constituent assembly election". In order for this, it has been
concluded that Roundtable Conference, Republic and Constituent Assembly
should be made the main slogan of the movement. In addition, emphasizing
on the need to continue with ceasefire and the peace process, it
has been said in the document that "Taking into account of
today's international and national situation that kind of movement
can be and should be propelled forward by continuing with the ceasefire
and the peace process".
3) The central committee meeting held after the conclusion of the
expanded meeting has shaped three separate committees to organize
roundtable conference among agitating different groups, political
forces and representatives of the civil society, take initiative
for unity among different left forces, and prepare party manifesto
for the forthcoming constituent assembly election and the mass movement.
To prepare for roundtable conference and have talks with different
sections, under the leadership of comrade Ram Bahadur Thapa (Badal)
a committee made up of comrade Barshaman Pun (Ananta), comrade Matrika
Yadav, comrade HisilaYami and comrade Lekhraj Bhatta has been constituted.
In order to have talks with different left forces, under the leadership
of comrade Mohan Vaidya (Kiran) a committee made up of comrade Barshaman
Pun (Ananta) and comrade Dinanath Sharma has been constituted.
In the same way, in order to prepare manifesto, a committee made
up of comrade Dev Gurung, comrade Dinanath Sharma, comrade Matrika
Yadav, comrade Hitman Shakya, comrade Pampha Bhusal, comrade Janardan
Sharma (Prabhakar), comrade Gopal Kirati and comrade Khadka Bahadur
Viswakarma under the convenorship of comrade Baburam Bhattarai has
been built up.
We, the Nepalese, are now in a very sensitive and serious transitional
juncture. At this time, revolution and counterrevolution, progress
and regress are conflicting at close. The recently concluded fifth
expanded meeting of the central committee of our glorious party
has taken up a historic decision to prop up revolution and progress
by institutionalizing republic and defeating counterrevolution and
regress. For this, we expect active help and support from all including
entire patriots, republican and left political forces, civil society
and media persons. Thank you!

Release Jose-Maria Sison!
The Committee of the Revolutionary Internationalist
Movement learned with anger and outrage of the arrest in the Netherlands
of Jose-Maria Sison by the Dutch authorities. Comrade Sison was
the founding Chairman of the Communist Party of the Philippines
in 1968 and has remained a life-long opponent of imperialism and
reaction and leader of the Filipino people's struggles. It is for
these reasons and no other that comrade Sison has been hounded by
successive reactionary governments in the Philippines . US imperialism
and the European Union have also tried to stick the "terrorist"
label on comrade Sison, despite the fact that the struggle he has
been associated with in the Philippines is widely known, even by
the reactionary news media, to have the support of millions of Filipinos
from all walks of life.
The arrest of comrade Sison is not only a major blow to the struggle
of the Filipino people, it is also an attack on the thousands of
revolutionaries and other political activists from around the world
who have settled in Europe because of severe political persecution
in their home countries. If the Dutch authorities succeed in bringing
comrade Sison to trial, it will have ominous, more widespread implications.
The CoRIM, on behalf of the entire Revolutionary Internationalist
Movement, calls upon all communist, revolutionary and progressive
forces and individuals to raise their voices in protest to demand
that the Dutch authorities release Jose-Maria Sison, drop all charges,
and cease their political persecution of him.
