Proletarians of all countries, unite!


On a day like today, the 24th of September 1992, Chairman Gonzalo, our great leadership, who has become the old Peruvian state's most important prisoner of war, gave his masterful Speech; in which he synthesized the III Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Peru, glorious and transcendent, second milestone of the Party, that approved the plans of victory, and which calls us to continue with our tasks, to continue the people's war until the end, serving the world revolution, to impose Maoism as its only command and guide, as its only guarantee of victorious development until communism.

The Communist Party of Peru closes ranks with what the great leadership established and continues developing our victorious and invincible people's war, firmly sticking to Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, principally Gonzalo Thought and the whole Basis of Party Unity, in hard struggle solving all the problems that present themselves to the leadership, the whole Party subjects to the Comrade responsible for the Central Committee, a proven and recognized leadership. With people's war the Party defends its great leadership against every attack, from wherever it may come.

As a consequence of the development of the class struggle, in the country and in the world, the defence of Chairman Gonzalo and Gonzalo Thought has become the principal question for the people's war and the world revolution. When the general counterrevolutionary offensive of imperialism, revisionism and world reaction develops on one hand, headed by Yankee imperialism in is condition as only hegemonic power, in collusion and contention, for a new repartitioning of the world, resorting to the predatory war against the oppressed countries, sharpening all the contradictions and, therefore, spurring on the revolution. Against this general counterrevolutionary offensive, on our hand, with people's war, the Communist Party of Peru heads the revolutionary Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, Gonzalo Thought counteroffensive. Thus, the people's war in Peru, along with the people's wars in Nepal, Turkey and the revolutionary wars led by the communists in India and other places, show the international proletariat and the peoples of the world the road to follow in order to prevent, confront and defeat the imperialist aggression, the imperialist war, and make the revolution.

The people's war in Peru, more than 25 years after its initiation (ILA 80), not only holds its grounds, but develops itself more, in more difficult and complex conditions; it is overcoming the bend in the road that it entered with the arrest of Chairman Gonzalo and comes out of the inflexion - concretized in the quantitative and qualitative increase of the Party, the People's Liberation Army and the New Power, recovering what was lost and expanding it, concretized in actions of great national and international repercussions, with the support of the enraged sea of the masses of the people, step by step sweeping away the old and rotten landlord-bureaucrat state and the old Peruvian society of oppression and exploitation that it represents and defends in general and final crisis. The people's war is therefore the principal problem of the old Peruvian state and, in perspective, of imperialism, mainly Yankee imperialism. And against all the detractors of the people's war, that try to deny it in a thousand ways, stands the material reality of its very existence and unstoppable development, which the enemy itself recognizes. Thus, the Prime Minister of Toledo's government (the Yankee, Pedro Pablo Kusinski) has declared: “Terrorism has advanced more in the last four years“ (declarations of the 17th and 20th of September 2005). After that, the Defence Minister, Rengifo, has confirmed this, saying: “The struggle against the subversion costs the country as well“ (the newspaper Correo de Lima, 21st of September 2005). In the same news article it is informed that the Prime Minister, in a press conference held after the cabinet meeting, has declared that: “If I say something, it is based on a piece of information. It is not something that is pure imagination. I have based myself on information that here is very detailed“, he said while showing a document and explained that perhaps those who had denied the possibility of a terrorist reappearance “have not had the same pieces of evidence that I had“. Also, according to the newspaper article, they will meet to consider a “new strategy“ next Monday in a session of the National Defence Council.

Converging with the plans of the counterrevolution in the country and abroad, some within the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement attack our Great Leader, repeating all that comes out of the sewers of the reaction - but with people's war the Party keeps them cornered and crushes them, thus impeding their plans of isolating the people's war in Peru and imposing their revisionist line on the RIM.

In this light, in the armed confrontation between revolution and counterrevolution on the national and international level, the counterrevolution - imperialism, reaction and revisionism of all kinds (including the rats of the revisionist and capitulationist ROL) - in order to annihilate the people's war try to eliminate its leadership, the Communist Party of Peru. In order to annihilate the Party they have to attack its center, our Great Leadership and its solid foundation, Gonzalo Thought. Therefore what the Party has established, that the defense of Chairman Gonzalo and of Gonzalo Thought has become the principal question for the people's war and the world revolution, sums up in a masterful way the current development of the class struggle in the country and the world and arms us ideologically and politically for the better accomplishment of our tasks.

Defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo!

For these reasons, to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo is to defend the right of the Peruvian people to make revolution through people's war serving the world revolution; it is to defend the right of the oppressed to rebel against the reactionaries. The reaction has Chairman Gonzalo in their hands; they want to annihilate him, while at the same time trying to make political use of the situation; in this they have the full support of the damned rats of the revisionist and capitulationist rol, blood-soaked traitors that seek amnesty and enrollment within the old and rotten state in exchange for their ill-fated counterrevolutionary services. Imperialism, reaction and revisionism, in the midst of their collusion and contention, intend to carry out the so-called “new trial“ against Chairman Gonzalo, saying that it will be on the 26th of September, but just like everything they have intended before it will be a new defeat for them. On the 24th of September 1992 Chairman Gonzalo gave his masterful speech that shines victoriously and powerfully before the world as a combat weapon, in which he calls us to harden all our efforts to fulfil the tasks and plans of the Party, establishing that his arrest is nothing but a bend in the long road and that the people's war will inevitably win. In November last year the reaction were left "dry as a stick in the henhouse" because neither Chairman Gonzalo nor Comrade Miriam said a single word about the ill-fated “peace accord“, showing for the umpteenth time that this is only a hoax, blown into a thousand pieces by the people's war. Now, before this “new trial“, we reaffirm ourselves once more in the demand of the Party and our people: We demand the public presentation of Chairman Gonzalo before the national and international televised press, live and direct, and that he may make a pronouncement! We reject completely each and every one of the hoaxes of the counterrevolution and call the international proletariat and the peoples of the world to harden all the efforts to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo.
