DEFEND THE LIFE OF CHAIRMAN GONZALO DEVELOPING PEOPLES WAR!
“We base ourselves on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo thought, principally Gonzalo thought, i.e. in the ideology of the proletariat, the highest expression of humanity, unique and true, scientific and invincible. We struggle for the Communist Program, the essence of which is to organize and lead the class struggle of the proletariat so that it may conquer the political power, carry out the democratic revolution, the socialist revolution and the cultural revolutions until Communism, the inalterable goal towards which we march. We have the general political line of the revolution, i.e. the laws that govern the class struggle for the conquest of power; established by Chairman Gonzalo with its five elements: 1) International Line; 2) Democratic Revolution; 3) Military Line; 4) Line of construction of the three instruments of the revolution; and 5) Mass Line. The Military Line is the centre of the general political line. We forge ourselves in proletarian internationalism, and therefore we understand our revolution as part of the world proletarian revolution. And we maintain ideological, political and organizational independence, basing ourselves on our own efforts and on the masses.”
“A Party of a new type that has generated the Great Leader of the Peruvian revolution, Chairman Gonzalo, the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, who leads the Party, is the guarantee of triumph of the revolution and will take us to Communism.”
“We are fully conscious that no class in history has been able to install establish its rule unless it has promoted its political leaders, its vanguard representatives, capable of organizing the movement and leading it; and the Peruvian proletariat, in the midst of the class struggle, has generated the leadership of the revolution and its highest expression: the Great Leadership of Chairman Gonzalo, who handles the revolutionary theory, has knowledge of history and a profound understanding of the practical movement; who in hard two line struggle has defeated revisionism, rightist and leftist liquidationism , the right opportunist line and rightism; he has reconstituted the Party, leads it in people’s war and has become the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, a great political and military strategist, philosopher; teacher of communists, centre of Party unity. The reaction has two principles for destroying the revolution; annihilate the leadership and isolate the guerilla from the masses – but in synthesis their problem is to annihilate leadership, because it is that which allows the course to be maintained and materialized. Our Party has defined that the leadership is key and it is the duty of all the militants to constantly struggle to defend and preserve the Party leadership and very much in particular Chairman Gonzalo’s leadership, our Great Leadership, against any attack from within and outside the Party, and subject ourselves to his personal leadership and command, upholding the slogans “Learn from Chairman Gonzalo” and “Embody Gonzalo thought”.
LINE OF CONSTRUCTION OF THE THREE INSTRUMENTS OF THE REVOLUTION
We express our unconditional subjection to our Great Leader Chairman Gonzalo, to our glorious Communist Party of Peru, to the Central Committee and to its entire Party leadership, reaffirming ourselves in the First Party Congress, in our undying communist ideology Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo thought, principally Gonzalo Thought. We close ranks in defense of the life of our beloved and respected Chairman Gonzalo, developing people's war.
In this decade, the struggle between revolution and counterrevolution is intensifying more and more, on one side the proletariat and the peoples of the world, and on the other side, imperialism, world reaction and revisionism. The struggles of the peoples of the world express that the revolution is the principal tendency. The oppressed nations in particular through National Liberation Movements under the leadership of the proletariat, with Communist Parties, are embodying what Chairman Gonzalo put forward: "that Maoism is marching unstoppably to command the New Great Wave of the World Proletarian Revolution" with Communist Parties of the new type, militarized and developing people's war. After the initiation of the people’s war in Peru in 1980, until today many Communist parties have been reconstituted on the basis of Maoism adhering to and putting forward that Maoism is a new, third and higher stage of Marxism and that to be a Marxist today is to be be Maoist, Communist Parties that have initiated the people’s war in Nepal, India, Turkey, Philippines, as well as other revolutionary organizations that are preparing to make the leap to constituting themselves as Communist Parties that lead the revolution. These are facts that show the progress of the international proletariat for the conquest of power following the landmarks of the world proletarian revolution: the October Revolution, the Chinese Revolution and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. The peoples of the world as a whole are struggling; it is in the midst of these struggles that they reaffirm themselves in the revolutionary violence, in the necessity of having a Communist Party; let us look at the Middle East, Africa, and in these parts South America, showing the world the role of the masses and their perspective.
Revisionism is an inseparable part of the counterrevolution; it serves to the restoration of capitalism. Revisionism is the main danger; it must be combated relentlessly inside and outside our ranks. Revisionism before taking power opposes the initiation of armed struggle and colludes with the reaction to maintain the old state; if it has the power, revisionism is the political leadership of the restoration of capitalism. Revisionism is capitulation, capitulation before the domestic reaction in each country and before imperialism on the international level.
The Communist Party of Peru, assuming its position as heroic combatant, leads the revolution in Peru, combating and crushing revisionist opposing lines since its foundation led by Mariátegui. In 1993 a right opportunist line that promotes a peace agreement, that sought to sell the revolution, is structured; a ROL promoted from the prisons through certain leaders. This line was structured, left the Party and serves the bureaucratic and comprador bourgeoisie, which seek to legitimize with their participation in elections. They oppose the struggles of the masses. They have revised Gonzalo thought in order to adapt to the old state and defend it. The Party unmasked and crushed this revisionist line of capitulators and infiltrators who fruitlessly seek to be a communist party only in name, an electioneering party.
This year a “left” opportunist line has been structured, renegades of Maoism, of Gonzalo thought, going as far as directly attacking the Great Leadership of the Party, miserable infiltrators whose aim is to annihilate the Party. This LOL put forward: a party without Gonzalo thought, without Great Leadership, accusing him of being a terrorist, ringing just like Reagan, Bush and Panetta. They do not want to strike against bureaucrat capitalism lining up behind the faction of the day; they deny the fundamental point of Maoism, the power, they carry out erratic armed actions without building the New Power. One of its heads is an agent of the reactionary army, collaborator of the genocidal general Fournier.
The Regional Party Committees close ranks around the Central Committee and its whole system of leadership, and likewise we will pursue the directive of unmasking, crushing and sweeping away this LOL, made up of renegades and infiltrated, from the ranks of the Party. And we reaffirm ourselves in our commitment to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo with People’s War, to combat alongside the people, to combat this sinister LOL relentlessly and forcefully as was done against the ROL in 90 when they intended to take the party committees by assault.
We want to salute the people of Peru that is struggling and shaking the country, conquering their demands in the midst of heroic days of action. To mention some of these, carried out across the country in September: The mobilization of workers from the mining company Shougang-Hierro Peru, the new start of the teachers’ protests in Loreto, the miners’ strike in Casapalca, the strikes in Arequipa against the mining company Cerro Verde, the strikes and demonstrations against the mining company DoeRun in Junin, the mobilization of coca farmers in Ucayali, the roadblocks in Piura, the roadblocks in Wari-Libertad, Ayacucho, the mobilization of the miners of CEDIM Arequipa, the mobilization of teachers in Apurimac, the realization of the drivers’ strike together with the residents in Yunguyo, the mobilization of approximately 80,000 residents of Lambayeque for lack of water, the farmers' mobilization in Andahuaylas and Chincheros, demanding the annulment of mining concessions, the strike of the Northern National Institute of Neoplastic Diseases, in La Libertad, the mobilization of teachers in Cajamarca with the population for lack of water, the mobilization of the inhabitants of Tacna together with regional authorities against the Southern mining company project, the mobilization against the authorities of the Amazon Region, the mobilization of university students against the lack of teachers in the University of San Cristobal de Huamanga, the mobilization of civil construction workers in Puno against the division promoted by the CTP, the mobilization of residents against the mayor of Tingo Maria for lack of water, the realization of a preventive strike by workers of the judiciary in Lima, etc, etc. Struggles plainly showing the world that the people of Peru are struggling every day against the old Peruvian state, workers, farmers, miners, students, teachers, mobilize, conquering and struggling better and better, and we as communists reaffirm ourselves in catching the faintest rumor of the masses and struggling together with them, the masses do not want the peace of the cemeteries, they are not for peace agreement nor amnesty, they do not buy the wordplay of “trickle down”, "inclusion," - they are for assuming their role in history.
On the other hand this reactionary government seeks desperately to better serve yankee imperialism together with the revisionists for a "social stability", a "macroeconomic stability". With the Consultation law they seek to ensure the investment of big capital and keep a tight rein on the people's struggles. They need a LOL that does not strike against bureaucrat capitalism, that does not demolish and does not build a New State, that carry out erratic actions, that defends their FTA’s. The Party, together with the people, is crushing the counterrevolutionary plans of the reaction supported by the Southern Command of imperialism; now they are looking at using the border issue with Chile.
Finally we call the whole Peruvian people to firmly apply Chairman Gonzalo’s Speech, to close ranks around the Central Committee and its whole system of Party leadership, to apply the directive to crush the “left” opportunist line made up of renegades and infiltrators; likewise to continue carrying out our struggles linked to the conquest of power; the results of the days of struggle show the reactionary character of this old state.
