The Coordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organizations of South Asia usually goes by its abbreviation, CCOMPOSA. As the name implies, it is an umbrella organization of various South Asian Maoist parties and movements and its purpose is to coordinate their activities throughout South Asia (as well as elsewhere as needed).
CCOMPOSA was founded in 2001 by the following parties:
- Purba Bangala Sarbahara Party (Central Committee)
- Purba Bangla Sarbahara Party (Maobadi Punargathan Kendra)
- Bangladesher Samyabadi Dal (Marksbadi-Leninbadi)
- Purba Banglar Communist Party - Marksbadi-Leninbadi (Lal Patakar)
- Purba Banglar Sarbahara Party (Maoist Bolshevik Reorganization Movement) (observer status)
- Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (Naxalbari)
- Maoist Communist Centre
- Revolutionary Communist Centre of India (Marxist-Leninist-Maoist)
- Revolutionary Communist Centre of India (Maoist)
- Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) People's War
(RCCI(M) and MCC merged in 2003 and became MCCI. MCCI and CPI (M-L) (PW) merged in 2004 and became the Communist Party of India (Maoist))
At CCOMPOSA's second annual conference in 2002, a declaration was issued, outlining the vision CCOMPOSA had for its role in revolutionary politics, how it would operate, and how the political situation in South Asia and the world looked from their point of view. It was declared that the organization would follow the ideas carved by Marx, Lenin and Mao, and, not least, to build on the examples and experience of Protracted People's Wars in Peru, Nepal, Philippines, India, Turkey and elsewhere.
In August 2006, CCOMPOSA held it's fourth conference in Nepal. Representatives of eight parties attended, including those of the Ceylon Communist Party (Maoist), who did not sign the resolutions. That has been taken as an indication that the CCP(M) was invited as an observer. The parties that participated in the conference were the following: Purba Bangala Sarbahara Party (Central Committee), Purba Banglar Communist Party - ML (Lal Patakar), Bangladesher Samyabadi Dal (ML) (all from Bangladesh), Communist Party of Bhutan (MLM), Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), Communist Party of India (Maoist), Communist Party of India (ML) Naxalbari and Communist Party of India (MLM). The conference resolved that coordination would be deepened and extended, while asserting that Nepali Maoists would not meddle in the 'Indian People's War'.
Many parties of CCOMPOSA are members of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement.
