Educational Materials Prepared By and/or Used By the
Communist Party of India (M-L) [People’s War]

      The CPI(ML) [People’s War] was a very important revolutionary organization in India during the last couple decades of the 20th century. In 2004 it merged with the Maoist Communist Centre of India to form the even more important Communist Party of India (Maoist). The documents posted below were, we believe, either prepared by, or at least used by, the CPI(ML) [People’s War] to educate their own members and the masses in the science of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, and in the history of India and the world revolutionary movement.

      A few of these documents may only be draft manuscripts, and may therefore not be complete and fully polished. Nevertheless, there is a huge amount of important information in them. Some of these documents are unsigned, either by individuals or by any organization. If any visitors to this site have further information about these documents, or have access to later and more complete versions, please let us know!

      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 (Marxist-Leninist) [People’s War], any of its descendants, 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 any Indian political party 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 these 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(M-L) [People’s War] and its descendants by the undemocratic central and state governments of India. And for this reason alone we are making copies of many of their documents available on this site, documents which the authorities in India wish to suppress and keep from the people.
