Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!
LONG LIVE MAY 1st, THE DAY OF THE INTERNATIONAL PROLETARIAT!
On the occasion of this Day of the International Proletariat, the Peru People’s Movement as generated organization of the Communist Party of Peru for the work abroad, solemnly salutes our class the international proletariat and its great historic mission as the last class in history, to unite and lead the oppressed working peoples of the world to finally crush and sweep imperialism off the face of the Earth, marching with people’s war until our final goal Communism, the society without classes and without any exploitation. Likewise we salute the oppressed peoples, which do not cease in their heroic struggles of national liberation against imperialist exploitation and oppression. We salute all the popular struggles in the world against this rotten and dying system of exploitation and oppression; the women’s struggle for their emancipation, the peoples’ struggles for their economic demands and their democratic rights, etc. - struggles that have to unite under proletarian leadership in order to not be manipulated and neutralized by the reaction.
The present world situation is characterized by the general and final crisis of imperialism, its new redivision of the world through war, the crisis of bourgeois democracy, the reactionarization and fascistization of the reactionary states. At the same time, in the camp of the proletariat and the peoples, the offensive of the world proletarian revolution continues to express itself in the midst of the general counterrevolutionary offensive; in the people’s wars and armed struggles under the banner of Maoism in Peru, India and other places, in the Parties and organizations that advance in crushing new revisionism and assuming and applying Maoism, including in the imperialist countries, and in the massive popular struggles for demands and against the imperialist war.
The present situation, in which all the imperialists try to save their dying system through the exploitation of the oppressed countries of the Third World, which are the booty in the interimperialist conflict, sharpens even more the principal contradiction in the world, the contradiction imperialism – oppressed nations. But the crisis and the general reactionarization do not permit maintaining the “social peace” even in the imperialist countries, and so the fundamental contradiction between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat is sharpened as well in all countries, generating more conditions for the revolution.
In this situation the validity and importance of our slogan “Proletarians of All Countries and Oppressed Peoples of the World, Unite!” is confirmed once more, as well as what the Great Lenin established: “The foreign policy of the proletariat is alliance with the revolutionaries of the advanced countries and with all the oppressed nations against all and any imperialists.” Furthermore, the practice of the present struggles unmasks more and more the dark role of revisionism, the class traitors who traffic with “socialism” in order to serve imperialism and divert the popular struggles from their revolutionary path, as we see now with the “socialist parties” that support and legitimize the imperialist wars of plunder. It is confirmed with full clarity that “revisionism is the outpost of the bourgeoisie in the ranks of the proletariat and in order to combat imperialism one must combat revisionism, since they are two sides of the same coin”.
As part of imperialism’s general counterrevolutionary offensive, the reactionaries have developed their methods for combatting the revolution. In the ideological and political they focus on dividing and diverting the main great popular and revolutionary movements; fomenting revisionism to undermine the proletarian movement, fomenting social chauvinism and the reactionary and pro-imperialist nationalist factions against the movement of national liberation in the oppressed nations, and bourgeois pro-imperialist feminism against the popular women’s movement, etc. The principal of these reactionary tasks is the first, to undermine the proletarian movement, because the proletariat is the only class capable of uniting and leading the other popular struggles, and this reactionary and hopeless task fundamentally consists of separating the proletariat from its scientific ideology, Marxism, today Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism. All the setbacks and all the dispersion of the proletarian movement that we now see are products of the abandonment of Marxism by a handful of revisionist and opportunist leaders, who continue to promote the illusions of “the peaceful road” and the conciliation with the genocidal imperialist bloodsuckers with the same old bourgeois “theories”, dressed up as supposedly “marxist” or even “maoist” theories, like in the case of the traitor rats of the ROL in Peru and the other new revisionists of the world. And so, to the same degree that they have been able to separate our class and its organizations from its ideology Marxism, they have also been able to weaken the two great movements that are inseparably linked to the proletarian revolution, the movement of national liberation and the popular women’s movement.
Therefore we emphasize once more that the struggle to impose Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism as command and guide of the world revolution, in implacable struggle against revisionism, is decisive in order to be able to develop the revolution on world level. And in spite of the setbacks and bends in the road, it is confirmed more and more every day that the revolutionary and popular forces do not cease in their struggles, but advance against all odds, overcoming the old leaders and their revisionism, as is now expressed in the great peasant mobilizations in Latin America and other places, and in struggles and strikes like the ones we now see in France, Germany and other countries. It is confirmed in practice what our beloved Chairman Gonzalo, the greatest man of the present epoch, Great Leader of the Peruvian revolution, established: Maoism marches unstoppably to take command of the new wave of the world proletarian revolution!
We call all the communists and revolutionaries of the world to continue struggling implacably to assume and apply Maoism to the concrete conditions, crushing revisionism within and outside the Parties, to be able to build or reconstitute the Communist Parties in each country as militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties and fulfill their task of preparing, initiating and developing the people’s war in each country.
LONG LIVE THE 1st OF MAY, THE DAY OF THE INTERNATIONAL PROLETARIAT!
