A banner against the construction of a dam was hung in the state of Odisha in Koraput district. According to reports from reactionary Indian media, the banner reads "River, forest and land are for tribals. We will not tolerate any disturbance of their lives by the government.

In Odisha's Nuapada district, the local forest department was attacked. In India, the forest authorities are an instrument of the old state in suppressing the justified struggle of the poor peasants for their right to land. Often the forest authorities play a role in denying land to the poor peasants or expropriating them to make way for the operations of imperialist companies, among other things. In the attack on the Forestry Department, the building was damaged by explosions and an excavator was burned. In addition, eight banners were hung and leaflets left there denouncing the anti-people policies of the federal and state governments of the old Indian state, which increase the poverty of the people and serve only the industry.

In Chhattisgarh state, a policeman was allegedly killed by Maoist fighters in Bijapur district, according to bourgeois media.

These actions in the span of 12 days show that the news of the Indian reaction about the success of anti-Maoist operations has no deeper substance. The police informers of the Indian reaction are being exposed and punished week after week. The road contractors who are partly responsible for the intrusion of imperialist companies on tribal soil and the facilitated invasion of revolutionary areas by the police and military continue to be prevented from doing so. And the Communist Party of India (Maoist) remains rooted in the local struggles of the masses as evidenced by interventions against dam construction, the Forest Department and for the release of progressive mass leaders. The people's war in India is vital and alive, and even after the week of martyrs and increased attention from the old Indian state, the revolutionary guerrillas are capable of action. That much of what the Indian old state claims about the weaknesses of the people's war is part of psychological warfare against the revolution is also evident in the bourgeois reports of the alleged deaths of two Central Committee members, Malla Raji Reddy (Sangram) and Katta Ramchandra Reddy, which have been exposed as lies by the Communist Party of India (Maoist).

In Quezon province, a unit of the New People's Army succeeded in setting an ambush against military units of the old Philippine state, killing five reactionary soldiers and subsequently confiscating five assault rifles, ammunition and other materials. In a subsequent statement, the NPA said that with this attack, all the crimes committed against the masses by these military units were avenged. The statement further proclaims that the propaganda of the old Philippine state that Quezon province is "insurgency-free" and that the New People's Army does not exist in this region is nothing but counterrevolutionary propaganda. The NPA from this province further calls on the masses from the province to join it and declares that the New Democratic Revolution in the Philippines is invincible.

As in India, the strong armed actions and declaration from the people's war at the Philippines show that in the strategic offensive of the world proletarian revolution imperialism and its lackeys everywhere in the world and in every environment can only be beaten with the gun and the way of capitulation to the necessity of revolutionary violence cannot lead to liberation.
