Proletarians of all countries, unite!

MAY 1ST, 2006:


We consider the building of the Party of the class to be of great importance and a historical necessity, a Communist Party to initiate the People's war, a Party of the proletarian class with a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, mainly Maoist, Base of Party Unity, because this is the highest development of the ideology of the proletariat. A Communist Party is formed to initiate, to develop People's War until Communism.

Today on the 1st of May, the international proletariat celebrates its day all over the world, and the Peru People´s Movement, generated organism of the Communist Party of Peru, greets our class on this day in the spirit of unbreakable optimism that belongs to the communists. With the application of our universal ideology, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, the great Marxist truth is confirmed now more than ever – that the future is bright, but the road is sinuous, as Chairman Mao pointed out. We are in the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution, which takes place within its strategic offensive – do not all the events around the world confirm this fact? In order to lead on this sinuous road, we must see all these events in the light of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and the contributions made by Chairman Gonzalo.

What is the situation that the proletariat and the peoples of the world are facing today, and which are the contradictions that are being expressed? There are three fundamental contradictions today in the world: 1) the contradiction between the oppressed nations of the third world and imperialism, which is the principal contradiction, 2) the contradiction between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie and 3) the contradiction between the imperialist superpowers and powers. As Maoists we know that the first of these is the principal, and will be so until it is solved – which will only be achieved with people´s war carrying out the new-democratic, socialist and cultural revolutions and sweeping imperialism off the face of the earth. The principal enemy today is Yankee imperialism, the only hegemonic superpower, but all the other powers collude and compete as well, in the slaughter and exploitation of the peoples. The second contradiction is also sharpening in the whole world, as the heroic struggles of the proletariat in the imperialist countries show. The third contradiction continues to express itself, as the superpowers and powers, in collusion and conflict, prepare for another imperialist world war.

To be able to lead the class and the peoples of the world toward triumph, the communists must grasp these undeniable facts; the three contradictions and the fact that imperialism is rotten and dying. Therefore, applying this proletarian world outlook, we reaffirm ourselves in what our Party has established: that the oppressed nations are the key, the base of the world revolution. As our Party says: “We, the oppressed nations, have the strength of numbers, what we lack is Communist Parties that develop People's War […] the strategically coordinated people's war of the communist parties of the oppressed nations is going to unite the peoples of the world around a nucleus, and only through this a true International Communist Movement will be forged, because in it will be those who want Communism, those who develop people's war.’ (Letter to the Communist Party of India (ML) (Naxalbari), Central Committee, Communist party of Peru, July 2004)

The Communist Parties of the oppressed countries have the responsibility of carrying out the national liberation – and the only way to do it is by people´ war, building new power while destroying the old state completely, carrying out the democratic revolution of a new type, crushing imperialism. Therefore, we also reject, condemn, crush and sweep away the new revisionism that wants “people´s war without new power’. We reject and condemn all attempts to confuse the people with opportunist frontism, which opposes the dictatorship of the proletariat and promotes bourgeois democracy instead of new-democratic revolution. Likewise, we reject and condemn all attempts to keep a door open for imperialist powers by saying that “Yankee imperialism is the only common enemy of the peoples.’ We repeat: Yankee imperialism is the principal enemy today, but all the imperialist powers are enemies of the people.

Concerning the struggles of the proletariat in the imperialist countries – the struggles in France being a recent and outstanding example - we express our revolutionary greetings to these heroes of our class, who show their class spirit and their ability to organize and apply the revolutionary violence. What these events show more than anything is the revolutionary situation in uneven development in the belly of the imperialist beast itself. It shows the necessity of Communist Parties of a new type to lead the masses: Militarised Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Parties that initiate people´s war, building new power while destroying the old, establish the dictatorship of the proletariat and carry out the socialist and cultural revolutions until Communism – the need for new power is furthermore emphasized by the power vacuum that these uprisings created. The current struggles prove once more that this is the leadership that the class and the peoples demand.
However, we reject all attempts to deviate the struggle on the international level by claiming that this second contradiction is the principal, or that the revolutionary situations in these countries “have the same degree of development in general’ as in the oppressed countries. This means only to fall in short-sighted opportunism which will lead to failure. Likewise, we must not allow ourselves to “kneel before spontaneity’ – but instead make these spontaneous struggles serve the reconstitution of the Communist Parties.

The inter-imperialist contradiction expresses itself all over the world, and what Chairman Gonzalo has established is confirmed every day; that the imperialist powers are preparing for the third imperialist world war in order to repartition the booty. There is no “globalized imperialist state’, no “ultra-imperialism’ and no “new situation’ that changes the fundamental contradictions. On the contrary, the blood-sucking imperialist superpowers and powers continue to carry out their exploitation and slaughter of the peoples of the world in collusion and conflict. Yankee imperialism is the sole hegemonic superpower, but the others dream of world domination as well, and are waiting for their moment to challenge the Yankee hegemony. Before the imperialist aggression and their world war, the Communists have the urgent task of forging a true International Communist Movement – which “is not generated as a consequence of conferences, forums, it is not an amalgam of organizations, it is those who apply people's war specified to each country’, as our party points out.

In our country, our Party continues to lead the victorious people´s war according to the plans established by our Great Leader Chairman Gonzalo, applying his almighty Gonzalo thought. Under the firm command of the Central Committee, the Party continues to beat back the enemy´s campaigns and maintain and develop the new power. In the recent campaign, and in the successful boycott of the elections, the People´s Liberation Army has carried out an overwhelming amount of actions that have shaken the old state, and thus the people´s war continues to deepen the crisis of the old state. Before this, the enemy desperately tries to find a way out, and continues its hopeless psychological warfare, led directly by imperialism, mainly Yankee imperialism: new attempts to spread the same old hoaxes, that “the Party is split’, that “there is no people´s war’ – but the facts speak for themselves and the people can not be fooled. Likewise, they continue the old rotten hoax of the “peace letters’, now as a part of the farce of the “new trial’ against Chairman Gonzalo, which they carry out with the help of the miserable rats of the Right Opportunist Line. But, once more, the people´s war under the Great leadership of Chairman Gonzalo and led by the Central Committee makes all their idiotic schemes blow up in their face.

Thus, we see that all the events on the world level confirm the universal validity of Maoism. Those who deny this, and speak of “new situations’, “the relative strength of the enemy’, of “people´s war without new power’ etc., are the same ones that deny the great lessons of our class, the great experiences of people´s war, of the building of socialism, of the titans of the proletariat, Marx, Lenin and Chairman Mao Tsetung, and want to replace these with rotten bourgeois ideology. People like this will come and go, while those who will lead the class and the peoples to victory will be those who firmly uphold and apply the ideology of the proletariat; Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, and wage people´s war until our final goal, the ever golden Communism – in which there will be no classes, no exploitation and no wars.
