Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!
LONG LIVE THE XXVII ANNIVERSARY OF CHAIRMAN GONZALO’S MASTERFUL SPEECH, THAT SHINES VICTORIOUSLY AND POWERFULLY BEFORE THE WORLD!
In celebration of the XXVII anniversary of Chairman Gonzalo’s masterful Speech, the Peru People’s Movement extends its warmest communist salutes and our full, firm, conscious and unconditional subjection to our Great Leadership Chairman Gonzalo, center of Party unity and guarantee of triumph until communism, and to the heroic combatant the Communist Party of Peru, its Central Committee and its whole system of Party leadership; to the I Congress of the Party, to the Basis of Party Unity and the III Plenum, the second milestone in the history of the Party.
We once more emphasize the far-reaching and decisive importance of Chairman Gonzalo’s masterful Speech from the 24th of September 1992, with which our Great leadership turned the supposed “defeat” of the people’s war into one more triumph for the Party and the revolution, showing before the world that the communists – when they apply the universal ideology of the proletariat, today Marxism-Leninism-Maoism – will never capitulate before the blows from imperialism, reaction and revisionism. Inspired and filled with exultant optimism by the Speech, the communists, combatants and masses of Peru persisted in maintaining and developing the people’s war according to the established plans, in a struggle to the death against the revisionist and capitulationist ROL and to overcome the bend in the road that resulted from the detention of the Great leadership and the revisionist treason. And thus, applying Gonzalo Thought, the Central Committee of the PCP today continues to lead the people’s war omnimodally, mobilizing the exploited and oppressed masses to retake what was lost, in implacable struggle against the revisionism of the ROL and the LOL. Likewise, the Speech and the development of the people’s war in Peru served and continues to serve as a beacon and guide, as a shining inspiration for communists, combatants and masses all over the world who advance more and more in taking up Maoism as command and guide, applying it to their concrete conditions and developing people’s war; in India, in Nepal, in Turkey, in Philippines and other places, where it is confirmed once and again that the struggle against revisionism as the main danger is decisive to be able to prepare, initiate, develop and triumph in the people’s war.
We also emphasize that Chairman Gonzalo and his all-powerful Gonzalo Thought, being the creative application of the universal ideology of the proletariat, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism to the conditions of the Peruvian revolution, also gives universal contributions to this universal ideology, and that its main contribution is precisely having established Maoism as third, new and higher stage of Marxism. Applying Chairman Mao’s contributions in the practice of the people’s war and synthesizing the whole experience of the world proletarian revolution, of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and the struggle between restoration and counterrestoration, Chairman Gonzalo arrived at the just and correct definition: that to be a Marxist today is to be a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, principally Maoist.
In that way, applying what was established by the Great Leadership, the PCP assumed and continues to assume the implacable struggle against revisionism on world level. In that way the revisionism of the ROL, of Avakian, Prachanda and others was crushed, the revisionism of those who promote a tamed “Maoism”, adapted to what is acceptable for the reaction, reduced to a nostalgic homage to what was in the past, a “Maoism” only in name, dead, opposed to the spirit and the revolutionary position of Chairman Mao. This new revisionism with a “maoist” label basically puts forward what revisionism has always put forward; that “there are no conditions”, that “the revolution is in retreat”, that “imperialism is strong”, that one must consider the “peaceful road”, and that the communists who persist and advance in the revolution against all odds are “dogmatists”, “sectarians” or “adventurists”. This revisionism today continues to be the main danger for the revolution in each country and on world level.
What Chairman Mao stated is being confirmed, that “while the prospects are bright, the road has twists and turns”, and what Chairman Gonzalo established, that “Maoism, being incarnated in the peoples of the world, marches unstoppably to take command of the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution”! Today we see that in the present situation, of the general and final crisis of imperialism and the strategic offensive of the world proletarian revolution, a new generation of communists and revolutionaries is emerging, that are for taking up Maoism as the only command and guide, learn from Chairman Gonzalo and assume his universal contributions in struggle to the death against the old leaders who promote revisionism and capitulation. It is seen in the left within the Communist Parties, in the forge of the armed struggles and people’s wars, and it is seen in the formation of new Maoist organizations even in the imperialist countries. We reaffirm ourselves in what Chairman Gonzalo said in his Speech: “We are living historic moments, each of us knows that this is the case, let us not fool ourselves. In these moments we must strengthen all forces to confront difficulties and continue carrying out our tasks. And we must conquer the goals! The successes! The victory! That is what is to be done.”
LONG LIVE THE XXVII ANNIVERSARY OF CHAIRMAN GONZALO’S MASTERFUL SPEECH, THAT SHINES VICTORIOUSLY AND POWERFULLY BEFORE THE WORLD AS A COMBAT WEAPON!
