थैंक्स चौमस्की

नॉम चौमस्की और उनके साथियों ने नंदीग्राम पर अपने दिए गए बयान को वापस ले लिया है। हम चौमस्की और उनके साथियों को यकीन दिलाना चाहते हैं कि भारतीय जनता और उसके संघर्ष तमाम बाधाओं के बावजूद सम्राज्यवाद और उनके दलालों के खिलाफ चलने वाले हर संघर्ष में पूरे उत्साह और हिम्मत के साथ शरीक है...
"We are taken aback by a widespread reaction to a statement we made with
the best of intentions, imploring a restoration of unity among the left
forces in India –a reaction that seems to assume that such an appeal
to overcome divisions among the left could only amount to supporting a
very specific section of the CPM in West Bengal. Our statement did not
lend support to the CPM’s actions in Nandigram or its recent
economic policies in West Bengal, nor was that our intention. On the
contrary, we asserted, in solidarity with its Left critics both inside and
outside the party, that we found them tragically wrong. Our hope was that
Left critics would view their task as one of putting pressure on the CPM
in West Bengal to correct and improve its policies and its habits of
governance, rather than dismiss it wholesale as an unredeemable party. We
felt that we could hope for such a thing, of such a return to the laudable
traditions of a party that once brought extensive land reforms to the
state of West Bengal and that had kept communal tensions in abeyance for
decades in that state. This, rather than any exculpation of its various
recent policies and actions, is what we intended by our hopes for
‘unity’ among the left forces.

We realize now that it is perhaps not possible to expect the Left critics
of the CPM to overcome the deep disappointment, indeed hostility, they
have come to feel towards it, unless the CPM itself takes some initiative
against that sense of disappointment. We hope that the CPM in West Bengal
will show the largeness of mind to take such an initiative by restoring
the morale as well as the welfare of the dispossessed people of Nandigram
through the humane governance of their region, so that the left forces can
then unite and focus on the more fundamental issues that confront the Left
as a whole, in particular focus on the task of providing with just and
imaginative measures an alternative to neo-liberal capitalism that has
caused so much suffering to the poor and working people in India."
