Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!
LET´S CELEBRATE THE 40th ANNIVERSARY
OF THE GREAT PROLETARIAN CULTURAL REVOLUTION!
What is fundamental in Maoism?
Power is fundamental in Maoism. Power for the proletariat,
power for the dictatorship of the proletariat, power based
on the armed force led by the Communist Party. More explicitly,
this is 1) power under the leadership of the proletariat
in the democratic revolution, 2) power for the dictatorship
of the proletariat in the socialist and cultural revolutions,
3) power based on the armed force led by the Communist Party,
conquered and defended through people´s war.’
On Marxism-Leninism-Maoism’, First Congress of the Communist
Party of Peru
With a resolute will and the highest revolutionary optimism, the Peru People's Movement, generated organization of the Communist Party of Peru (PCP) for the Party work abroad, call on all the Communist Parties and revolutionary organizations inside and outside the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the initiation of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR) in China (1966-1976), the most earth-shaking political process and the greatest mass mobilization ever seen on Earth, a great historical milestone in the development of the dictatorship of the proletariat towards the final securing of the power of the proletariat, and therefore of transcendental historical importance in humanity's inexorable march to communism. The GPCR is, in historical perspective, the most transcendental of the development of Marxism-Leninism by Chairman Mao, and represented Marxism's leap to a third, new and superior stage: Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, mainly Maoism.
The celebration of the anniversary of the GPCR must serve as a powerful reaffirmation of our solemn promise to fight tenaciously and implacably 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 the revolution has become the principal tendency of history, amidst the most complex and largest wars seen to date and the implacable struggle against modern revisionism, and even more against the new revisionism.
The celebration of the anniversary of the GPCR is part of a protracted campaign to impose, with people´s war, Maoism as the only command and guide of the world proletarian revolution; serving its embodiment in the peoples of the world and to crush the general counterrevolutionary offensive that is headed by Yankee imperialism as the only hegemonic superpower. It is the celebration of our unbreakable faith and absolute conviction of the triumph of communism; in times of great disorder under the sky; it is to celebrate the rising Red Sun; thus, it is the oath before the unfading red banner with the golden hammer and sickle of the iron legions of the international proletariat, that, challenging death, are launched in the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution under the battle cry: People´s War Until Communism!
Thus, the celebration of this anniversary of the GPCR is a renewal of our promise to never lay down our arms until communism, a promise that falls upon all the communists of the world; and therefore, the celebration also serves the reconstitution of the Communist Parties as militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist communist parties, that initiate and develop people´s war in all the corners of the world, as soon as possible; in this way it also serves to support the communists in Nepal, see the complex situation that the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) faces and reaffirm that for the international proletariat and the oppressed peoples of the world, for all the communists, revolutionaries and progressives of the world, there is no other option than to culminate the democratic revolution through the conquest of power in the whole country, by way of the guns of the revolutionary army. We Maoists are supporters of the omnipotence of the revolutionary war and among us no one, whoever it may be, can let themselves move even an inch from the course that is guaranteed by two principles: "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" and "It is right to rebel!", the only proletarian, people´s and democratic road, the road of the people´s war.
Therefore we are for carrying out the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the GPCR within the campaign for Maoism inseparably united with the campaign to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo, and giving it a great impulse through this celebration, generating a debate sustained by historical facts, seeing the advance of the world revolution through laws that are inevitably fulfilled, see where to go and what we must do. We are for imposing the light of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism amidst a great struggle of ideas. Therefore we call upon all the Parties and organizations inside and outside the RIM to propel and participate jointly in this great celebration until May 2007, through all kinds of events, activities and actions, extensively mobilizing to achieve a great active participation of the masses. As part of this we invite the CoRIM, all the Parties and organizations inside and outside the RIM and the revolutionaries of the world to participate in the activities that we carry out within this great celebration, which has an objective of such high importance.
We will hold the Second International Conference to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution on March 10th, 2006, in Paris.
Paris, which was the birthplace of the proletarian dictatorship, the first time we seized power. 136 years ago the heroic proletariat of Paris and spilled their blood and constituted the Paris Commune. The great Lenin said: "The sacrifices of the Commune, heavy as they were, are made up for by its significance for the general struggle of the proletariat: it stirred the socialist movement throughout Europe, it demonstrated the strength of civil war, it dispelled patriotic illusions, and destroyed the naïve belief in any efforts of the bourgeoisie for common national aims. The Commune taught the European proletariat to pose concretely the tasks of the socialist revolution. The lesson learnt by the proletariat will not be forgotten." The Commune also came to play a role of great importance during the GPCR as an example and a weapon against the bourgeois headquarters. Let us also celebrate this anniversary, not only as a historic fact, but with struggle against imperialism, reaction and revisionism.
Long Live the 40th Anniversary of the GPCR!
Long Live the 136th Anniversary of the Paris Commune!
Unite Under Maoism!
People´s War Until Communism!
