Proletarians of all countries, unite!
DEFEND THE LIFE OF CHAIRMAN GONZALO!
Defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo!
Chairman Gonzalo is the Great Leader of the Communist Party of Peru (PCP) and of the Peruvian revolution, and by justly and correctly applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism to the concrete conditions of Peruvian reality he has generated Gonzalo Thought that is the guarantee of the triumph of the revolution until Communism.
On September 12, 1992 Chairman Gonzalo was captured by the Peruvian reactionaries, under the command of Yankee imperialism; twelve days later, when Chairman Gonzalo was presented before the national and international press, he gave a masterful speech that shines victoriously and powerfully before the world. This speech condensed the Third Plenum of the Central Committee of the PCP and established that his arrest was only a bend in the road and that the PCP would follow the established plans until the conquest of power countrywide. Since that moment Chairman Gonzalo has not been able to communicate with anyone. The reactionaries immediately began to prepare the assassination of the Great Leadership of the Peruvian revolution; but through the People's War, the PCP and the Peruvian people defended his life. Similarly, at the international level a great campaign of moving heaven and earth to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo developed. The Peoples War has not been detained for one minute and this is complemented by the international campaign that has prevented the assassination of Chairman Gonzalo to date; but the threat continues to exist, and furthermore it has become greater in recent times: People who are closely linked to Fujimori's fascist, genocidal and country-selling regime have pointed out that at any moment the attempt to assassinate Chairman Gonzalo could be carried out. For that reason it is more necessary than ever before to raise the defense of the Great Communist Leader.
We do not consent in any way to the deactivation of the defense of the Great Leadership of the Peruvian revolution in certain places, or with echoing the sinister hoax of the "peace accord" launched by Yankee imperialism, the fascist regime and the wretched traitors who are with the revisionist and capitulationist Right Opportunist Line (ROL). Chairman Gonzalo is inextricably linked to his all-powerful thought, and the people -- today more conscious than yesterday have never and shall never believe what their enemies say. We are for the defense of the life of Chairman Gonzalo in his condition of Great Leader of the revolution in Peru: He is the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist in the world, and we shall never doubt him.
Along with the defense of the life of the Great Leadership of the revolution in Peru we link the defense of the life of Comrade Feliciano who seconds Chairman Gonzalo. Comrade Feliciano was captured in the month of July this year, and the representatives of the fascist, genocidal and country-selling regime have indicated, even before his "trial", that Comrade Feliciano will be subjected to the same conditions of slow death that Chairman Gonzalo has been living under. Furthermore, the enemy is preparing a new hoax, seeking to replay the hoax of the "peace accord", saying that "Comrade Feliciano asked to confront Chairman Gonzalo"; but this crude hoax shall fail as all the previous ones have failed.
The Peoples War continues its unstoppable march towards the conquest of power countrywide, clearly serving the overcoming of the bend in the road. Today, facing the arrest of Comrade Feliciano, Comrade Julio assumes the leadership of the whole Party.
It is necessary today more than ever before to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo, and linked to this the life of Comrade Feliciano, and to elevate this campaign to higher forms on all levels. We expect this Conference to decisively serve this goal.
Long Live the 50th Anniversary of the Chinese Revolution!
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the setting up of the Peoples Republic of China, and we should celebrate it; this victory forms a milestone of the world proletarian revolution and it is very fitting to center the political content of this campaign to the urgent necessity to reconstitute the Communist Parties as militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist communist parties.
The triumph of the Chinese revolution, under the Great Leadership of Chairman Mao Tse-tung, established the joint dictatorship led by the proletariat and resolved the step to the socialist revolution, thus changing the balance of forces in the world. The celebration of the triumph of the Chinese revolution should be a conscious celebration of Maoism, conceiving of Maoism as the new, third and superior stage of Marxism, understanding that to be a Marxist today, necessarily means to be a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist. Understanding that Maoism is the elevation of Marxism-Leninism to a third, new and superior stage in the struggle for the proletarian leadership of the democratic revolution, the development of the construction of socialism and the continuation of the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat as proletarian cultural revolution, when imperialism deepens its decomposition and revolution has become the principal historical tendency, in the midst of the most complex and great wars seen to date and the implacable struggle against modern revisionism.
Today more than ever before it is indispensable to struggle implacably to place Maoism as the command and guide of the world proletarian revolution and generate militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Parties, so that they may apply peoples war throughout the globe; these are the requirements for the advance and triumph of the world proletarian revolution. It is indispensable to impel the process of reconstitution of the Communist Parties; this is a pending task for all the Communists of the world. It is necessary to understand that our revolutions all form part of the world proletarian revolution and it is necessary to draw lessons from the experiences of the different Parties and revolutionary organizations in general, and especially to learn from the Communist Party of Peru that leads the victorious Peoples War and that is a beacon of the world revolution, as well as the contributions to Marxism made by Chairman Gonzalo (with respect to the decisive question of the militarization of the Communist Parties). Today, the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties and organizations find themselves united in the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) that is a step towards the reunification of the Communists on a world level in a reconstituted Communist International; it is necessary to serve the development and advance of the RIM, combating convergences with the ROL, so that it may play its role greater and better.
We hope that this Conference serves to impel the process of reconstitution of the Communist Parties.
We conclude by making the call to all Communists, revolutionaries and progressives:
ONE AN ALL TO THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF SEPTEMBER 25 AND 26 IN COLOGNE!
