The forgotten holocaust: The 1965-66 massacre against Indonesia’s communists

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/09/the-forgotten-holocaust-1965-66.html
By Nikos Mottas*.
 
Without any doubt, the WWII Holocaust and the 1915 Armenian genocide consist the two largest mass slaughters of the 20th century. They are crimes which must never be erased from the collective memory of the peoples, no matter how many decades will pass. 
 
However, there are also less known sides of History, the “forgotten” holocausts to which the bourgeois historiography has given little importance, either by downgrading them as insignificant details of world history or by distorting their true dimensions. 
 
A major example of such a “forgotten” holocaust is the mass slaughter of the communists in Indonesia by Suharto’s dictatorship during the 1965-66.
The criminal called General Suharto was the man who, with the tolerance and silence of the U.S. and British governments, was responsible for one of the most barbaric bloodshed of the previous century: the mass slaughter of more than 1,000,000 people, mostly communists, members and supporters of the Communist Party of Indonesia [1].
If we want to have a comprehensive image of the social and political conditions that led to the 1965-66 massacre, we must refer to the historical background of developments in Indonesia after the end of Second World War. These developments are related to the role of the British and Dutch imperialists, the conditions under which the independence of the Republic of Indonesia took place, the formation of the class struggle in the country and, of course, the position of Indonesia in the post-WWII imperialist plans which led to the active involvement of the US in the domestic political processes.
In the mid of 1960s, the sharpening of the intra-bourgeois contradictions (with the steady interference of US-British governments) led to a series of military coups and counter-coups that ultimately resulted to the overthrow of the elected president Sukarno. In the morning of October 2, 1965, numerous military vehicles were patrolling at the streets of Jakarta in order to capture the insurgents and lead them to prison. A day earlier, a failed coup attempt had been organised by the commander of the presidential guard Colonel Untung. From his side, in a message transmitted via radio, the Colonel had justified the coup attempt by arguing that its role was to prevent a conspiracy planned by the CIA and army officials to overthrow President Sukarno.
The army crushed the failed coup’s insurgents, with a General called Suharto playing a decisive role. This man would subsequently override Sukarno’s leadership thus becoming the new powerful leader of the country. Suharto and his imperialist allies point the Communist Party of Indonesia as the source of the failed coup – after all, the well-organised and popular Communist Party had played a leading role in the anticolonial struggle and had significant influence in Sukarno’s policies.
 
The rise of General Suharto- a man who had the support of the US imperialists- in Indonesia’s leadership led to unprecedented violent persecutions against communists, including mass killings, executions, tortures and every kind of barbaric act. Even the CIA had admitted in a subsequent report that the 1965-66 events were “one of the worst mass murders of the 20th century” [2]. Of course, both the CIA and the British intelligence services had an active role in the massacre by supporting the Suharto regime. Information about the role of the governments of the United States, Britain and Australia in the anticommunist holocaust of Indonesia were unveiled years later.
On May 17, 1990, based on testimonies by personnel who had worked at the US embassy in Jakarta during the 1960s, an article by the States News Service of Washington DC reported that the US embassy had provided Suharto regime lists with over 5,000 names of communists and supporters of the Communist Party [3].
 
The role of the imperialists in the Indonesia massacre has been confirmed by professors and researchers. For example, Professor Brad Simpson of Princeton University and author of “Economists with Guns: Authoritarian Development and US-Indonesian Relations, 1960-1968”, has said that the U.S and British governments did “everything in their power” to ensure that the Indonesian army would carry out the mass killings [4]. The massacre against the communists in Indonesia was followed by an organised plan for the entry of foreign monopoly capital in the country. According to the documentary “The New Rulers of the World” (2001) by Australian journalist and researcher John Pilger, the dictatorial regime of Suharto proceeded to business deals with known monopoly and banking groups such as General Motors, Daimler-Benz, Chase Manhtattan Bank, Siemens, Standard Oil etc.
Imperialism cares to erase its bloody past in order to safeguard its future.
 
Dictator Suharto meets US President Richard
Nixon in Washington DC, May 26, 1970.
The massacre of the communists in Indonesia by the authoritarian Suharto regime, with the support and tolerance of the US-British imperialists, consists one of the darkest pages of the 20th century. It consists a deliberately “forgotten” holocaust that the bourgeois propaganda tries to downgrade as a “collateral damage” of the Cold War. They try to downgrade the historical significance of the 1965-66 massacre of Indonesia’s communists because it is one more example that exposes imperialist brutality.
Imperialism tries to erase its bloody past in order to safeguard its future. For that reason, the imperialists distort History in every possible way. Because they know the actual power that the working class, the proletariat in every country, has. That is why the working people, the people, must know their history and fight against distortion and oblivion, in order to have a powerful weapon in the struggle against the big enemy of humanity which is the rotten exploitative system that generates barbarity, poverty and wars.

Despite its organisational strength and the extraordinary large number of its members, the CPI didn’t avoid the trap that had been set by both its domestic enemies and their imperialist allies.

Poland’s government tries to distort and rewrite history: Statement by the Communist Party of Poland

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/09/polands-government-tries-to-distort-and.html
Act of barbarity: Polish authorities demolishing
the Red Army monument in Trzcianka.
We condemn the changes of street names around Poland driven by the government, and the increasing number of devastations and liquidations of monuments commemorating heroes of struggle against fascism. Recent example is the dismantling of the Mausoleum of the Red Army in Trzcianka. Changing names of the streets and attacks on monuments of Soviet and Polish soldiers, communist partisans and militants of the workers’ movement are a result of the historical policy imposed by the state authorities. It is being implemented by the Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) which is questioning even liberation of Poland in 1944–1945.
We oppose the ‘Decommunisation Act’ that imposes changes of the street names and other public objects and liquidation of monuments and memorials regarded as promoting communism. In many places, during public consultations, inhabitants nearly unanimously voiced against changing toponyms of the streets. Due to this resistance many local authorities resigned from conducting decommunisation.
The ‘Decommunisation Act’ and the way it’s being implemented show that opinion of the society is meaningless for the authorities. In frames of this act, the voivodes – local representatives of the central government – gain power to impose new toponyms where local authorities failed to change them. It is an illegal interference in competence of the local authorities, so the appeals against these decisions should be addressed to administrative courts. What’s more, the costs and consequences of these changes will be covered by inhabitants, even those who opposed them.
The main object of the attack are the patrons who participated in the struggle against fascism, they constitute 2/3 of the list of patrons to be changed, composed by the IPN. Historical policy conducted by the authorities leads to replacing these patrons with anticommunists promoted by the IPN. Equating communism with fascism is an element of this policy, and this indirectly leads to whitewashing the later. It also promotes nationalism. The aim of this policy is not only to shape the vision of the history, but also aggressive anticommunist positions, mostly among the youth.
In this situation, the resistance against falsifying of the history is needed. The most efficient way to oppose the ‘Decommunisation Act’ is a broad social resistance. In many cities, there are campaigns to preserve names of the streets and monuments. Communist Party of Poland expresses its support for these activities of the local groups and calls upon all its members and sympathisers to participate in this resistance.
‘Akin to barbarity’: Moscow furious over demolition of monument to Red Army soldiers in Poland

‘Akin to barbarity’: Moscow furious over demolition of monument to Red Army soldiers in Poland

‘Akin to barbarity’: Moscow furious over demolition of monument to Red Army soldiers in Poland
Russia has expressed its outrage at the bulldozing of a mausoleum housing the remains of dozens of Soviet soldiers who fell battling to free Poland from Nazi German occupation, calling the move an act of vandalism that violates bilateral agreements.

It took less than 20 minutes for the Polish authorities to raze the monument, built by the Red Army in 1945 in the Polish town of Trzcianka in memory of 56 Soviet soldiers who gave their lives on the battlefield.

Video of the demolition posted by Adam Bogrycewicz shows heavy machinery being used to demolish the war memorial.

Responding to what it described as a sacrilegious “act of vandalism,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said that the demolition is “unacceptable in terms of existing inter-state and inter-governmental documents” relating to the preservation of the memory and burial sites of victims of war and repression, adding that the Polish government “was fully aware” of Moscow’s staunch objection to the removal.

“We consider this outrageous incident an illustration and direct consequence of the Polish government’s anti-Russian policy in the memorial field among others,” the ministry said in a statement on Saturday, adding that lack of respect to “the memory of the war and its heroes” displayed by Poland is “akin to barbarity.”

Poland has twice applied to the Russian embassy in Poland over the issue of the removal, but was unable to provide evidence that there were no remains of Russian soldiers in the mass grave, according to Aleksey Fomichev, Head of the Russian Defense Ministry military commemorative mission in Poland.

“Pursuant to all documents there are remains [in the mass grave]; there are no papers on exhumation or reburial,” Fomichev said, as cited by TASS.

Fomichev revealed that the Russian delegation and the Polish local authorities had discussed the possibility of including the memorial in a list of historic monuments guarded by the law on cultural heritage three weeks before the demolition, of which the Russian embassy was notified once it was underway.

The Russian Defense Ministry joined the chorus of condemnation, saying that it is “outraged” by the trampling on the memory of those “who liberated the world from the brown plague, fascism.”

The destruction of the monument, which bore a hammer and sickle motif on its roof, follows a recent decision by the Sejm (Polish Parliament) to adopt a package of legislative amendments opposing both communist propaganda and that of other totalitarian regimes. The amendments envisioned the removal of Soviet era monuments, including those dedicated to Red Army soldiers. As the law was passed unilaterally, it was denounced by Russia’ Foreign Ministry as “an appalling decision” damaging the legacy of the fight against fascism.

The anti-Russian line taken by the incumbent government of Jarosław Kaczyński’s Law and Justice (PiS) party has recently resulted in barring Russia from taking part in multi-national project to create a new memorial at the site of infamous Nazi Sobibor death camp, despite Moscow having pledged a significant financial contribution.

“The intention not to let Russia join the project’s participants is part of Warsaw’s Russophobia, which it has been openly showing recently. The Poles also aim to impose their own version of history by belittling the USSR’s and the Red Army’s role as liberators in World War II,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said at the time.

As well as going on a crusade against historic memory, Poland is demanding millions in reparations from Russia under the Treaty of Riga, which ended the Polish-Soviet War in 1921.

‘Russia is the enemy Polish government needs’

Bruno Drweski, professor at the National Institute of Languages and Eastern Civilizations, believes the anti-Russian narrative in Poland is fuelled by the authorities, who want to portray Russia as an external foe for political gain.

“They need an enemy in Poland. German nationalism and Ukrainian nationalism are very unpopular so they push against Russia because they cannot criticize Ukraine or Germany, and that’s the real point,” Drweski told RT.

At the same time, he argued, ordinary Poles do not support the efforts of the Polish government to rewrite history by erasing any mention of Red Army’s contribution to the defeat of fascism as embodied in Soviet war-time monuments.

“It is pure demagoguery; if you ask people on the street in Poland they say it is pure vandalism, but that’s the way the Polish media and government are working,” Drweski said, adding that many Poles know and respect the Soviet army’s role but the government is working zealously to obliterate that memory.

“All the propaganda is concentrated on the so-called Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, and they don’t take into the account the interests of the Soviet Union at that time. They don’t talk about the Soviet role in the liberation of Poland,” he said.

Most at risk are the Polish youth, who are susceptible to this rhetoric, he argued.

“The problem is with the new generation, which was brought up in schools where they teach the [version of] history I told you.”

Kostas Papadakis – The equation of Communism with Nazism is unacceptable and provocative

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/08/kostas-papadakis-equation-of-communism.html
By Kostas Papadakis*.
 
Article first published in the “Efimerida ton Syntakton” newspaper, 22/08/2017, reproduced from inter.kke.gr.
 
The anticommunist conference-provocation of the Estonian Presidency of the EU is no bolt from the blue. Similar anti-communist events being organized in the framework of the so-called “European day of remembrance for the victims of totalitarian regimes”, as the EU with enormous budgets is trying to establish the 23rd of August. This is an orchestrated campaign that aims to slander socialism, rewrite history, and to unacceptably and provocatively equate communism with the monster of fascism. I.e. equating Nazism with the forces that in historical terms smashed it.
 
A basic goal is to conceal the fact that fascism is a form of capital’s power in specific conditions. In Germany, Nazism constituted the ideal form to support capital in the conditions of the military preparations for the conquest of new markets, in the conditions of a very deep capitalist crisis, of the rise of revolutionary ideas, of the increase of the prestige of the KPD and the USSR. It was supported politically and financially by sections of German capital, it identified with monopolies (Krupp, I.G.Farben, Siemens etc.), it collaborated with the colossi of the “democratic” capitalist states (General Motors, General Electric, ITT, Ford, IBM).
Nazism-fascism met its deadliest and most determined opponent in the socialist society of the USSR, which was established by the October Revolution 100 years ago. The 20 million dead soviets was the bloody proof of this deadly confrontation between socialism and Nazism. The communists in every country were the most determined and combative anti-fascist force, with the role of the KKE and EAM in our country being a characteristic example of this.
The  anti-communist campaign of the EU, of this capitalist union, goes hand in hand with the offensive against the workers’-people’s rights and has been going on for many years.
 
The wretched anti-communist memorandum of the Council of Europe in 2005 lent impetus to these anti-historical efforts. However it did not gain the necessary majority in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe that would have made the measures that accompanied it compulsory for the member-states.
Through the decisive contribution and mobilization of the KKE, it met with the broad and mass condemnation of the Greek people and other peoples of Europe, of trade unions and other mass organizations, of public figures. The then governments of Greece, Portugal and Cyprus expressed their intention not to support it. The majority of MPs, MEPs  of the Greek bourgeois parties stated their opposition.
 
There followed the anti-communist resolutions in the European Parliament in 2006 and particularly the resolution of April 2009 entitle “European consciousness and totalitarianism”, it should be noted that no Greek MEP voted in favour of it.  There then followed other anti-communist proclamations and decisions of the EU.
Beyond the declarations and resolutions, practical anti-communist measures are being pushed forwards in a number of EU member-states (e.g. Poland, Hungary, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania) as well as in countries connected to it (e.g. Ukraine). We are referring specifically to the persecution, prosecution, and condemnation of communists, bans on the activities of the CPs, bans on communist symbols etc.
 
A self-evident consequence of the anti-communist campaign is the justification, prettification and exoneration of Nazism-fascism and its atrocities. In these countries, honours are bestowed on, pensions and privileges granted to the Nazi collaborators and their political descendants are being promoted.
 
This year, the EU generously financed the “House of European History” in order to promote its anti-historical anti-communist proselytizing while for years it has been organizing the anti-communist programme “Europe for citizens” in order to slander socialism, with the involvement of local municipalities, NGOs etc.
 
Several forces utilized the opportunity provided by the anti-communist fiesta in Estonia to rear their heads. Primitive and crude anti-communism, in which ND plays the leading role, followed by PASOK and POTAMI, together with of course Nazi Golden Dawn, copies all the propaganda with aim of slandering socialism, the USSR, with the aim of falsifying the history of the peoples.
 
The absence of the government from this year’s anti-historical anti-communist fiestas in Estonia cannot conceal the fact that the forces of SYRIZA in the movement are propagandizing-overtly or covertly-the equation of Stalin with Hitler, are playing a leading role in anti-soviet and anti-communist propaganda, while they hide or distort the relationship between capitalism and fascism.
 
A characteristic example of the government’s hypocrisy is that fact that a representative of the government has attended similar anti-communist events last year in Bratislava, something the KKE had denounced, while a few weeks ago, on July 15th, “Avgi” published a vulgar article propagandizing the equation between communism and fascism.
 
The people’s experience proves that escalation of anticommunism is a precursor for new anti-people measures and restrictions on people’s rights, a precursor for the launching of a new round of imperialist wars. The struggle for the abolition of the anti-communist persecution and bans, the struggle against anti-communism, for the satisfaction of the contemporary needs of the people and their rights, is integrally linked to the struggle for workers’ power, for the working class and popular strata to be emancipated from the shackles of capitalist exploitation and the imperialist unions, for the peoples to become the owners of the wealth they produce.
 
Whatever they try to do, history is not going to be rewritten with blue, green or black letters. It has been written with the blood of the millions of militants and communists who fought Nazism-fascism. It is in the hands of the peoples today to join forces with the communists in order to consign capitalism, which creates poverty, wars, fascism-Nazism and its nostalgists,  to the dustbin of history.

Legendary composer Mikis Theodorakis blasts anti-communists and anti-Stalin slanderers

Legendary composer Mikis Theodorakis blasts anti-communists and anti-Stalin slanderers

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/08/legendary-composer-mikis-theodorakis.html
With a powerful letter to the Athens daily “Ta Nea”, the renowned Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis comments on the recent anti-communist hysteria on the occasion of the EU and Estonian government’s unhistorical, anti-communist events. 
 
Theodorakis, 92, begins his letter by blaming “Ta Nea” for the newspaper’s anti-communist stance: “I’m terrified by the anti-communist hysteria that overwhelms your newspapers. As a young communist, I had the honor to fight through the lines of EAM for the achievement of freedom. Later, during the Junta period, through the Patriotic Front for the restoration of Democracy”. 
 
Among other references regarding Greece’s recent political history, Theodorakis writes: “The only thing that counts for you is our defeat in the Civil War and your inconvenience because the Left’s ideology continues to exist, act and affect after so many persecutions”.
Then, the composer refers to Joseph Stalin: 
 
“And from Stalin you remember only his crimes… The only thing I didn’t hear about him is that he was eating fried human meat for breakfast. For him, Stalin, the Marshal of the Red Army with the victories in Stalingrad, Moscow, Leningrad and Berlin, you have nothing to say? If the Red Army and Stalin wasn’t there, what would we have today? Did you think about it? Who would prevent Hitler from filling the world with thousands of “Aushwitzes”? Do you imagine Greece filled with extermination camps? Up there, in Europe and especially in the racist states, I know why they hurt and attack Stalin and communism. Because he defeated their beloved Fuhrer. Adolf Hitler!”.
 
Mikis during a political event in
1970s.
And, he continues: “But, you here, what is your reason? You were killing communists like flies. With gangs like the ones of Sourlas and Vrettakos. With military courts and executions of 16,000- mostly young- communists. Boys and girls. With (prison) islands like Makronisos, where 100,000 Greek communists were martyred. With the security police’s slaughterhouses where thousands of male and female communists were tortured by the most horrific methods. So, what are all of us, criminals or victims? And why did we fight? Didn’t we fight for Greece and the Greek people? Did kingship and the para-state organisations who murdered Lambrakis, did the Junta sprang from our lines? Not to mention the collaborators of foreign conquerors, who supported the US-domination that lives and reigns masqueraded in memorandums and troikas that have led us to the brink of national disaster”.
 
The legendary composer closes his intervention with the following: “I believe that you easily can understand my anger, because for me as well as for thousands of others, our engagement and struggles under the Red Flag consists the most sacred period of our lives, which had one and only aim, to make our People free, independent and happy”.
 
Greek Leftists Laud ‘Botched’ Anti-Communist Conference

Greece’s ruling leftist Syriza party on Wednesday praised low EU support for an Estonian conference on Communist crimes as a positive sign for Europe.

ATHENS (Sputnik) — The conference on the “Legacy of the Crimes of Communist Regimes in 21st Century Europe” was hosted by the Estonian capital on Wednesday. Its final declaration was signed by eight EU countries. The number of nations attending was not disclosed.

“The failure of the conference in Estonia is a positive [sign] for Europe. Its supporters will eventually isolate themselves,” Syriza’s spokeswoman Rania Svingu tweeted.

Greece’s Justice Minister Stavros Kontonis refused to take part in the gathering, saying its cold-war era atmosphere contradicted EU values. His abstention led to warnings from some Greek politicians that the country could become isolated.

Maria Yannakaki, the transparency and human rights chief at the Greek Ministry of Justice, said the declaration was signed only by Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

August 23 marks the European Day of Remembrance for Victims of Communist and Nazi Regimes, but the Tallinn conference singled out the legacy of Communism for debates.
Anticommunism shall not pass: Joint statement by more than 60 communist & workers parties

Anticommunism shall not pass: Joint statement by more than 60 communist & workers parties

https://communismgr.blogspot.com/2017/08/anticommunism-shall-not-pass-joint.html
The Communist and Workers Parties denounce the anti-communist fiesta being organized by the Estonian Presidency of the EU, in the framework of the so-called “European Day of Remembrance for the victims of totalitarian regimes”- as the EU has been attempting in recent years to establish the 23rd of August. The anti-communist meeting aims to slander socialism and its unprecedented achievements for the workers, to falsify history, to anti-historically and unacceptably equate communism with the monster of fascism and its atrocities. The provocative identification of communism with fascism means exonerating fascism and the womb that gives birth to and nourishes it, the exploitative capitalist system. This is why, when communists are being persecuted and condemned and communist parties are being banned in a number of EU countries, at the same time honours are being bestowed on and pensions provided to the Nazi collaborators and their political descendants.
The workers, the peoples can now draw conclusions about the fact that the escalation of anti-communism signals the intensification of the anti-people measures, the restriction of workers’-people’s rights, the unleashing of new imperialist wars.
The truth will shine through. 100 years after the Great October Socialist Revolution, the superiority of the socialist system cannot be concealed, however many tonnes of mud they throw at it. The peoples, through their struggle, will find the path to a society where the wealth will belong to those that produce it, to socialism-communism.

Los Partidos Comunistas y Obreros denuncian la fiesta anticomunista organizada por la presidencia estonia de la Unión Europea.
Los Partidos Comunistas y Obreros condenan la fiesta anticomunista organizada por la presidencia estonia de la Unión Europea, en el marco del llamado “Día Europeo conmemorativo de las víctimas de los regímenes totalitarios”, como la Unión Europea ha intentado establecer el día 23 de agosto en los últimos años. La reunión anticomunista pretende calumniar al socialismo y sus logros sin precedentes para los trabajadores, falsificar la Historia, equiparar inaceptablemente y sin base histórica el comunismo con el monstruo del fascismo y sus atrocidades. La equiparación provocativa del fascismo con el comunismo significa exonerar el fascismo y el seno que lo genera y lo alimenta, es decir el sistema explotador capitalista. Es por eso que mientras los comunistas están siendo perseguidos y condenados, mientras los partidos comunistas en varios países de la UE están siendo prohibidos, al mismo tiempo rinden honores y proporcionan pensiones a los colaboradores de los nazis y a sus descendientes políticos.
Los trabajadores y los pueblos ya pueden sacar conclusiones sobre el hecho de que la intensificación del anticomunismo señala el fortalecimiento de las medidas antipopulares, la restricción de los derechos obreros populares, el desencadenamiento de nuevas guerras imperialistas.
La luz de la verdad brillará. Cien años después de la Gran Revolución Socialista de Octubre la superioridad del sistema socialista no se puede ocultar por muchas toneladas de barro que arrojan. Los pueblos a través de su lucha encontrarán el camino hacia una sociedad donde la riqueza pertenezca a los que la producen, hacia el socialismo-comunismo.

Коммунистические и рабочие партии осуждают антикоммунистическую фиесту, организуемую в ходе председательства Эстонии в ЕС в рамках так называемого «Европейского дня памяти жертв тоталитарных режимов», который ЕС в последние годы стремится утвердить23 августа. Целью этого антикоммунистического сборища является постоянная клевета на социализм и его беспрецедентные завоевания, фальсификация истории, неприемлемое и антиисторическое приравнивание коммунизма к фашистскому чудовищу и его зверствам.Провокационное приравнивание фашизма к коммунизму является оправданием фашизма и капиталистической эксплуататорской системы – чрева, порождающего и вскармливающего его.Вот почему, в то время, когда коммунисты подвергаются преследованиям и привлекаются к уголовной ответственности, когда запрещаются компартии в ряде стран ЕС, отдается почет и предоставляются пенсии пособникам нацистов и их политическим потомкам.
Теперь трудящиеся, народы могут сделать вывод о том, что эскалация антикоммунизма знаменует собой усиление антинародных мер, урезание прав трудящихся, развязывание новых империалистических войн.
Но правда восторжествует. Через сто лет после Великой Октябрьской социалистической революции превосходство социалистической системы невозможно скрыть, сколько бы грязи не было вылито. Народы будут бороться за построение общества, в котором богатство будет принадлежать тем, кто его производит, за социализм-коммунизм.
