CPM uppvaktar USA

Från studenternas DSU-sajt i New Delhi kommer en sammanställning av uttalanden som ledande medlemmar av CPM, det “marxistiska” kommunistpartiet, gjort när de träffat USA-diplomater. Bakgrunden torde helt enkelt vara att CPM, trots röda flaggor och officiell anti-imperialism, har varit ute efter att få in fler investeringar från USA. Den förebild man har är Kinas helomvändning till kapitalism. Tilläggas bör att bland annat försök att med aggressiva metoder ta bondejord för industribyggen gjorde att CPM stort förlorade det senaste delstatsvalet i Västbengalen. Buddhadeb som nämns nedan ledde CPM där. Idag styr CPM bara en av Indiens delstater.

Wikileaks cables expose what the fighting people have already exposed about the social fascist CPM by throwing it into the dustbin of history…    

Ø    Communist ideology needs ‘to change or perish’ were Buddhadeb’s words to the US ambassador in 2009. Welcoming US investment, he asked the ambassador for help to bring American businesses to Bengal.
Ø    Buddhadeb also wanted Dow Chemicals to invest in Bengal stating that he “did not understand why Dow should be saddled with Union Carbide’s liabilities from the Bhopal accident”.
Ø    Reassuring the diplomats that the ‘Left’ was getting over its “past skeletons”, Sitaram Yechury along with CPM Gen Secretary Prakash Karat confirmed CPM’s support towards building better relations with the US.
Ø    CPM State Secretary of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan pointed out how CPM has no problem with US imperialism, “We have no problems with American companies, no hesitations at all.”
Ø    VS Achuthanandan, former Chief Minister of Kerala and CPM Politburo Member, expressed CPM’s “interest in attracting US investment to Kerala” to the visiting American diplomat in 2008.
Ø    Shedding even any pretence of opposition to the continued US occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan, the drone attacks in Pakistan, support to Zionist Israel, Buddhadeb had immense praises for the warmonger Obama.
