Pro-Naxal Bloggers scare the living daylights out of the Government

The first to fall victim was the pro-maoist website

Undetered by the fascist onsalught of the state on free speech.P Govindan Kutty relaunched peoplesmarch on googlepages.

On the shifting of peoplesmarch to googlepages,the editor had this to say.


“We believe that an individial has an unalienable right of speech and expression, by virtue of his birth. We will exercise that right, and this site is a step in that direction.”
—P.Govindan kutty, Editor, People’s March

Meanwhile several pro-naxal bloggers present on the blogosphere decided to get there act together and launched a pro-naxalite blog called

Naxal Revolution was vocal in exposing the hypocricy of bourgeoise democracy,the fascist nature of the government and exposed the atrocities conducted by the government in the name of Salwa Judum.

Some of the important issues reported by Naxal Revolution were

1.The brutal massacres that went un-reported in the mainstream media like the Devarpalli Massacre
The Devarpalli Massacre is the first incident in post-independent India’s history where the state has deliberately bombed its own civilian population.

2.We collected videos of Salwa Judum Terror Atrocities Video released by the CPI(Maoist) which can be accessed below.

3.Last month we exposed
how the mining mafia in collusion with the
political leaders were looting and exploiting the people of bellary in Karnataka
BJP Scum buys helicopter

Minefield of Exploitation


Children of the Pits

Eventually the story was picked up by NDTV in the last week and the government was forced to react.This incident has sent shockwaves throughtout the entire state putting the coalition government led by H.D Kumarswamy in turmoil.

Unable to counter the fast growing naxal movement and afraid that pro-naxal bloggers would expose the other unlawful and illegal activities that the government is carrying out in various corners of the country,the government decided to put a blanket ban on the entire Indian Blogosphere.

The buck now stops at India’s CEO Joker Manmohan Singh

Article on Censorship Wiki
Which was deleted from the main page by the Indian Blogger’s Collective who are supposedly fighting for the rights of bloggers.

But they won’t think twice about censoring a fellow bloggers post.

    Take heart comrade: the only way the Indian government will be able to censor you effectively is to ban access to the internet, which would of course not suit a neoliberal agenda! You will always be able to put information into cyberspace, and people who want to will always be able ultimately to find it. Of course, the masses will not find information this way, but that is not something you can change by putting information on the internet – that is something for which you need to put information on the streets. But in terms of informing cadres and intellectuals, they cannot stymie the internet!

    You are right comrade in your assessment.
    The Internet indeed is out of reach of the masses right now in India.

    Anyways the government hasn’t banned feedblitz so people can always subscribe for email updates.
