The method of attack by the police is to encircle and surprise. On one day police posts combine to attack a particular village, and then on another day they will do the same to another village. The government sees Jarjarkot as a doorway to the far western part of the country. This area is geographically favorable to the People's War and the police are burning the forests here as a way to attack the revolution.
The government repression has affected our ability to get shelter and our communications and this is a big problem. Some people who have been afraid of police repression have left and gone to India. If the police know about people who give Maoists shelter and food, they will arrest and/or kill them. The families of full-timers are constantly harassed by the police. The police capture food grains from the farms of full-timers.Police also confiscate the land of families and tell the people they will be killed if they farm on the land. Then the family has to either leave or become more involved in the party. Many times, the young people join the People's War while the old people and children have to leave and live somewhere else. The party is helping some of these people. But it is hard to solve this problem because there are more and more of these type of people that need support. If we wage strong military actions and create a power vacuum, this problem will be solved with people's power in our hands.
Lal Salaam to the West
Today is my last day in Rolpa, and I'm happy to spend my last days in the west with comrades who are leading the struggle here.
Revolutionary newspapers are illegal here--to be caught by the police with them would almost certainly mean being arrested, if not shot on the spot. But someone has managed to smuggle some precious copies into this area, and many of the comrades have been sitting around, eagerly devouring and savoring each page.
Someone has also brought a small collection of xeroxes that people have been studying. There are readings from bourgeois military books (mainly from India, but also one from the U.S.). There are also several books on the history of the Chinese revolution, including Han Suyin's Morning Deluge and William Hinton's Fanshen. And I am happy to see two books from the Maoist comrades in the United States--And Mao Makes Five (a collection of documents and articles from the Cultural Revolution in China) and Phony Communism is Dead...Long Live Real Communism by RCP Chairman Bob Avakian.
有人还带了一小部分人们学习的复印资料。这里有资产阶级军事教材(主要来自印度,但还有一份来自美国)的读物,还有一些有关中国革命历史的书籍,包括韩素音的《早晨的洪流》(Morning Deluge)和威廉 韩丁的《翻身》(Fanshen)。我很高兴地看到两本美国毛主义同志们写的书:And Mao Makes Five(中国文化革命文献和论文集)[注1]和革命共产党主席Bob Avakian写的《假共产主义已经死去......真共产主义万岁》。
My time here in the west--the eye of this storm of People's War--has been quite an experience in so many ways. It has been a tremendous learning experience talking to so many people on the frontlines of the People's War here. I feel like I have not only learned a lot of basic facts about how the People's War is advancing--but I have also been able to get a real sense of the People's War--by traveling, living, and talking with the party comrades, the people's army and masses. And being in the west--the most sensitive area in terms of the enemy--has given me a taste of war conditions.
In our evaluation meeting, the comrades ask me what I have learned on this trip. I tell them how I have been particularly inspired by the role of the youth, women, and the oppressed nationalities. I talk about how the families of martyrs have given me a real sense of the strength and determination of the masses to win--even in the face of vicious repression. And I tell them that I have learned that this People's War is not only about destruction of the enemy and the old exploitative society--but also about revolutionary construction. I have seen how the People's War is developing the seeds of a new society; how the masses are breaking with feudal traditions and social relations and creating a new revolutionary economy and culture.
I also tell the comrades that I have been very impressed with how much they have advanced the military theory and practice of waging this People's War--in just a short period of only three years. They have gone from primitive fighter groups to squads, platoons and larger task forces. They have developed from small attacks to more developed military raids and ambushes.
We talk about how the situation is at a very critical point right now. The government is compelled to step up their efforts to crush the People's War, exactly because of all the advances and achievements by the revolution--especially the development of power vacuums in areas where the reactionaries have fled and the police are afraid to come in. The police posts are being centralized in many areas, which will mean that the People's War will be confronted with very large groups of police. So far, the national police have been the ones sent against the People's War, but there has been talk in the government about sending in the Nepali army.
All this will require a leap in the military capacity of the people's army--in the size of military groups (from platoons to companies); in the level of military actions; and in the quantity and quality of weapons. I think that in the near future there will be some major moves by the government against the People's War--and this will require a big leap in the capacity of the people's army as well as the whole party leadership, mass organizations, etc. This will also make it more urgent for there to be international awareness of the situation and the building of international solidarity and protests against the reactionary moves against the People's War.
Before we leave this last village, the comrades gather outside for a final farewell. One of the Central Committee members here refers to my visit as a historic first--I am the first visitor from a fraternal revolutionary movement to come and witness the People's War in Nepal first hand. All the comrades say my trip has inspired them, and they reiterate how important it is now for me to take what I have learned and make it known to the international proletariat. They have great hopes that I will tell the world about their struggle and help build international solidarity.
We leave at noon and, a bit later, arrive at the village school where about 100 people have gathered. The local villagers heard that we were going to come through here on our way out and they want to greet me. The local party leader presents me with some farewell words and gifts. Then we shake hands with everyone--many have brought garlands of flowers to put around our necks.
On our way out of the Rolpa/Solyan districts, the comrades proudly point to a tall, pointed mountain peak, not too far away. It is where the government's Jimpe Communications Tower used to be--before the people's army raided it, injuring two police and seizing a number of rifles and ammunition. As the sun begins its descent over this scene, I note this as a fitting image for my exit and mark the sight, sound and feel of this moment in my memory.
Leaving the west is such an intense parting. I have grown so close to the comrades here. I have gone up and down so many mountains with them, sat down together for so many meals, shared sleeping space on clay floors, so graciously given to us by peasants, talked, laughed and discussed, late, into so many nights. When we say our final lal salaams I feel sad to be leaving these comrades. But they have strengthened me in so many ways. And I feel excited in my determination to tell the world about how the comrades here are shining a bright light on the road forward for the masses of people around the world.
