Special Report on Indian Maoists broadcast in Dateline show on SBS TV - Australia

The Video Report below gives a glimpse into the life of a Maoist Guerrilla in the Dandakaranya region of India.

India's Red Tide 

Special Report on Indian Maoists broadcast on Dateline show on SBS TV in Australia
Maoist guerrillas have been at war with the Indian government for over 40 years… challenging the capitalism which they fear will take over their land and its mineral resources, and instead proposing a communist way of life.

It’s been a bloody conflict, with thousands of people killed and the Naxalites, as they’re also known, pushed into a nomadic existence deep in the jungle.

Dateline gets a rare glimpse into the lives of a group of people seen as terrorists on one side and human rights activists on the other.
