This Revolution WILL be Televised, Comrades!

From BBC comes this sordid tale of exploitation. The separatist rebels in Tripura are making porn films to fund their rebellion.
"The former guerrillas of the NLFT have told police their leaders not only sexually abused scores of tribal girls recruited into the rebel army but also used them - and some male guerrillas - to produce scores of porn films, officials say."
I know the story is a tragic one, but for some reason, I was reminded of Woody Allen's 1971 classic.

Rebel groups without a clue, male guerillas being forced to act in porn...there is something utterly ludicrous about this whole affair.
