Long Live Kishenji!

Revolution is a serious historical inevitability. With them come great leaps, shining paths and ultimately martyrs. A loyal ally to the Red Guards - Los Angeles (NCP-LC) has taken much time and dedication to translate this document into English. We are now proud to make this downloadable and printable zine of fallen comrade Kishenji of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) available to everyone. 

Kishenji, also known as Mallojhala Koteswarlu, was a hero of our time, some would describe as our era’s Che Guevara or another icon of revolution. But we’d rather not compare him with anyone, past or present.

Read about him for yourself, download it, share it, print it, keep his memory alive.
India’s people mourn Maoist leader Kishenji

Revolutionaries and oppressed peoples all over the world are mourning the assassination of CPI(Maoist) leader Kishenji. The loss is especially difficult for the people of India, even as they gather to celebrate his life and contributions to human liberation.

There is evidence Kishenji killed in what is called a “fake encounter.” This is an incident when police or paramilitaries capture a person, kill her/him in detention, and then manufacture evidence to make the killing look like it occurred in combat. It is nothing but cowardly, ruthless, cold-blooded murder. Indian state forces have often engaged in this practice to cover up their ruthless persecution of Maoist and Adivasi (tribal) people.
