The following are two statements from the Communist Party of Peru from June 2011. The first and more recent marks the 31st Anniversary of the people’s war in Peru. It is a reaffirmation of MLM and further propagates its campaign to defeat the revisionist currents in Peru pushing for Peace Accords and attacking Gonzalo. The document makes some interesting observations about the current geopolitical world designs of Yankee imperialism. It also includes an updated national situationer on Peru and some comments on the efforts to reestablish RIM.
The second statement “Apply Maoism and Crush Revisionism” is reproduced further below.
LONG LIVE THE XXXI ANNIVERSARY OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR IN PERU!
MAY MAOISM ASSUME THE COMMAND OF THE NEW GREAT WAVE OF THE WORLD PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION!
|If there is to be revolution, there must be a revolutionary party. Without a revolutionary party, without a party built on the Marxist-Leninist revolutionary theory and in the Marxist-Leninist revolutionary style, it is impossible to lead the working class and the broad masses of the people to defeat imperialism and its running dogs. In the more than one hundred years since the birth of Marxism, it was only through the example of the Russian Bolsheviks in leading the October Revolution, in leading socialist construction and in defeating fascist aggression that revolutionary parties of a new type were formed and developed in the world. With the birth of revolutionary parties of this type, the face of the world revolution has changed. The change has been so great that transformations utterly inconceivable to people of the older generation have come into being amid fire and thunder…With the birth of the Communist Party of China, the face of the Chinese revolution took on an altogether new aspect. Is this fact not clear enough? -Chairman Mao Tsetung|
The PCP reaffirms itself, on this 31st anniversary of our glorious people’s war, in our unconditional subjection to the Great Leadership, Chairman Gonzalo, the Central Committee and the whole system of Party leadership, to our basis of Party unity. The Central Committee, applying Gonzalo thought with firmness in the principles, maintains the course of the revolution. We salute the Peruvian people, principally the poor peasants, who are defending the new power with heroism and with the seal and temper with which Chairman Gonzalo forges us.
We denounce and hold the APRA government responsible for Chairman Gonzalo’s health; they will pay with interest for the isolation and tortures that he is subjected to, the miserable one knows that every communist has the duty to execute what has been sanctioned; Perpetrator of genocide! Sooner or later we will make you feel our deep class hatred.
The director of the CIA, Leon Panetta, warned that the economic crisis may destabilize some countries in Latin America and Europe (25/02/2009). And the purpose, he says, “is to ensure ourselves that we will not be surprised by the consequences of the global economic crisis and how it affects the countries of the world”. He wants to be on the safe side; so what the peoples of the world must do is initiate and develop more people’s war, and the enemy is panicking in the face of its black future and that of its revisionist accomplices. May the Communist Parties assume the leadership of the people’s war, the people is ready, with our undying ideology MLM, mainly Maoism, develop the New Great Wave of the World Proletarian Revolution.
The current international economic crisis has generated the third most important recession of the 20th and 21st centuries, after what happened in the thirties and the end of World War II. The yankee economy is a broken economy. Imperialism continues trying, and have been trying for quite some time, to refloat their crisis-ridden economy, without success; the only thing they have done is to increase their ability to become more indebted; and which is logical: they only become more indebted or sink deeper, with the story of globalization they transfer their “financial costs” to the rest of the world, mainly the oppressed nations, tying the European Community to this economic model, see Greece, Portugal, Spain and who else is on the list? They go from defeat to defeat.
Let us see what the genocidal Obama says: “If investors around the world thought that the full faith and credit of the United States was not being backed up, if they thought that we might renege on our IOUs, it could unravel the entire financial system”, and he added: “We could have a worse recession than we already had, a worse financial crisis than we already had”.
They round off with Michel Camdessus who says that the financial deregulation that prevailed in the world since the 80s were the cause of the “worst crisis that the global village has experienced in the last 80 years”.
The wave of protests in the Middle East, the war in Libya, Syria, have caused the price of crude oil to shoot up to its highest levels since August 2008, before the financial crisis broke loose. Here is a hegemonic plan for positioning.
The international structure that is unfolding in a complex and contradictory way: Yankee imperialism decided to orchestrate an integral reorganization of the world system, a reorganization that has had and still has its first and principal stages of manifestation in Central Asia and the Middle East. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in the Middle East have given it a unique geopolitical projection in a part of the world where it had influence but could never be territorially stable. The installation of military bases from the heart of Central Asia to the Horn of Africa and the search for control of the main energy sources grants it the role of an Asian power. In the beginning of the 20th century, they became a hemispheric power, after World War II they turned into an “Atlantic power”; with the cold war it forged itself as a “Pacific power”; in the post-cold war period their impact in Africa grew, and now it is expanding in Asia.
The U.S. tries ruthlessly to control the Middle East for its oil. This was the basis of the Truman Doctrine, the Eisenhower Doctrine and the Carter Doctrine. This is why the U.S. backed the apartheid regime in South Africa and its interests in controlling the Pacific basin. When World War II was over in 1945, with Franklin D. Roosevelt they tried to control Eurasia from the borders. The formation of NATO, the Marshall Plan and the military alliances with Japan and Taiwan had this goal, to be sole gendarme. After World War II, the focus was in the Far East and west Eurasia, Japan and the Far East.
The basis of the project New American Century or the Wolfowitz Doctrine, manifested in the strategy of preventive war: Imperialism puts forward U.S. proactive military intervention in any place, facing the enemy they say “terrorism” or “drug traffic”. Pakistan, Bin Laden, is the last application of this.
Imperialism looks for a dominant position in the Persian Gulf region and to serve as a spearhead for future conquests and to affirm their power in the region. They aim against China and Russia as well as against Syria and Iran. They started in Iraq and got bogged down; it cost them 10 billion dollars a month and more casualties. They keep failing. In their eagerness to maintain their hegemony they spread out in different parts of the world; and the best thing for us is to hit them there, may they come with their best gear, we will take it; welcome.
In Latin America imperialism upholds: “… the Defense and Security doctrine must strengthen and reposition in those strategic spaces where there exists a situation of “insecurity”, in the “Failed States”, that are breeding grounds for “terrorism” like Amazonia, the Three Borders, Patagonia or the Andean zone and Venezuela…” where there are riches in biodiversity and natural riches. This region in Latin America has a strategic potential in terms of riches such as gas, water, oil and foods, almost without comparison in the world.
Development of the contradictions of imperialism and the imperialist powers
Oil stands for about 45% of the energy consumption globally; it is a limited resource concentrated to a few producers: Central Asia, Middle East, and in Latin America Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador.
The increase in the demand for oil is exponential, in China it is estimated that “the demand will grow with 60% in the next 25 years” and in India their energy model foresees a “50% increase in the next 8 years…”.
The increase in China supposedly aims for a “strategic equality”, it forces yankee imperialism and some countries in the European Union to take “positions” and geostrategic initiatives directed towards achieving positioning of the oil supplies in the world; or establishing “relations” with axis countries that secure their needs. There are the multi-million investments of Chevron-Texaco in Kazakhstan, Shell in Nigeria, the dispute between Peking and Tokyo over the construction of pipeline from Siberia to the Japanese Sea. And Taiwan, South Korea, North Korea, Brasil, Venezuela, among others, are strategic positions that serve as a “platform for growth” to the imperialist powers of the EU, China, Japan. These inject capital and establish a fictional “level of economic development” in such a way that they cannot be easily taken over as strategic positions by other imperialist powers. We see that China will invest 10 billion dollars in North Korea, which approved granting the big Chinese companies the use of two islands for 50 years, for them to transfer part of their manufacturing production there. The scenario between China and the U.S. is that they will be in open conflict in the strategic positioning of gas and oil supplies, through wars of plunder.
What the Communist Parties must do is to unmask and combat, developing more people’s war. It is necessary to strengthen the proletarian internationalism, and in this the MPP is carrying forward the international campaign: Apply Maoism and crush revisionism – conceived as a part of the task to serve to impose Maoism as the sole command and guide of the world proletarian revolution, developing the international debate to embody Maoism, crushing new revisionism, and serve the advance of the RIM. This was carried out with successful actions of struggle and conferences realized in 2010 and concluded in Germany. This year the MPP must continue to crush petty black groups of capitulators and degenerates that are swarming abroad and want to traffic with the people’s war, reissuing “new interview” like the mercenary Borja.
It should be specified that the PCP has served the development of the RIM by developing people’s war, crushing the hegemonist positions of the RCP-USA; Chairman Gonzalo’s masterful handling of the two-line struggle led the RIM to advance to the point of taking up Maoism as new, third and higher stage of our ideology.
Facing the arrest of our Great Leadership, the hegemonist tendencies in the CoRIM raised their heads. The CoRIM, the RCP and some other Parties within the RIM, instead of taking firm position and combating the hoax of the “letters”, “Peace Accords”, they did not spread the position of the CC of the PCP, but said they “had to investigate”; then, in 1995, they said: “… that Gonzalo could be behind the letters” and after that they abandoned the campaign to defend Chairman Gonzalo’s life.
The position of CPN, member of the RIM, for the “peace accord” in Nepal and for integrating into the old state under c. Prachanda’s leadership, this capitulation only serves the plan of the reaction to restrain the people’s war, disarm and demobilize the revolutionary army and integrate it into the old state. The PCP called the left in Nepal to reject this path and continue the people’s war, and those leading the CoRIM once again conciliated and capitulated before their responsibility, sustaining it with ambiguities.
Afterwards, in the heart of the RIM, “Avakian’s synthesis” and “c. Prachanda Path” were put forward, disorienting the struggle to impose Maoism in the world, thus concretely when they have to put forward a firm and clear position they come with “we must analyze the new conditions”.
The PCP defined Give more impulse to the people’s war to serve the development of the RIM and the world revolution and carry out the international debate! about the application of the fundamental point in Maoism, the power, to develop the two-line struggle against the capitulation in the heart of the RIM, as well as how to combat the miserable revisionist and capitulationist role that with their actions converge with the plans of the CIA. As the facts show the world, Merino Bartet wrote the letters in complicity with Montesinos, and the so-called self-criticisms and presentations (the miserable Nancy, la Pantoja, Morote, and the whole bunch of capitulators) have been done with a script and Montesinos standing next to them, broadcast on the TV channels that he controlled, the evidence is clear.
We call the proletariat to firmly unite ourselves to Apply Maoism and implacably combat revisionism!, for the RIM to assume their responsibility with firmness – we think that it has the experience and the support of all its members – to call an expanded meeting, to strengthen proletarian internationalism. The central point is to support the people’s wars that are developing and initiating.
Peruvian society. Bureaucrat capitalism
During the first years of the genocidal and country-selling Fujimori’s government – to develop bureaucrat capitalism, with the comprador bourgeois faction, and annihilate the people’s war in strategic equilibrium, before the inefficient and corrupt state administration, as well as for the “trade-union” pressure from the bureaucratic bourgeoisie, who while they praised the changes announced by the government, demanded more “protectionist” economic measures – the fascist decided to make the self-coup for so-called national reconstruction, with the backing of yankee imperialism and the coordination of the CIA with the Armed Forces.
The arrest of Chairman Gonzalo led the comprador bourgeoisie to take advantage of it and try to legitimize themselves by calling the Democratic Constituent Congress, reelected after that in 1995. In the midst of this, yankee imperialism with their financial and bourgeois system showed their total complacency because they thought they secured the continuity and deepening of bureaucrat capitalism, with greater reactionarization of the state, choosing the fascist regime. Aiming for the “insertion into the international system” which means nothing else than handing oneself over on a plate to the highest bidder; abandoning the path of the FTA, putting us in the condition of exporter of raw materials: minerals, gas, gold and everything that can be sold from the cost, mountains and jungle. Today the clown Garcia supposedly makes a political argument with the “Perro del Hortelano”, which is just a cutting remark typical of his egocentrism, a grotesque exhausted effort to present himself as an imperialist lackey.
This politics led the bureaucrat and the comprador bourgeoisie to try to adapt to the adjustment of prices and the opening of the markets, to the selling of public companies, and the payment of tax liabilities, strengthening the SUNAT as an organization for police-like blackmail.
The reduction of the inflation conditioned the comprador bourgeoisie to focus on dividing the market and implementing measures to consolidate, looking for capital to survive, consolidating in the opening and deregulation of markets, as well as privatizations; unsuccessfully looking for international financing to fusion themselves as a “joint venture” with companies of the imperialist powers and to be in the condition to be a “market” in the so-called world globalization.
This led to redefining the role of the old state as promoter of economic rules, of social politics to include the extremely poor population in the mountains and the jungle (see Hernando de Soto’s proposal for Obtain Your Title Deed (COFOPRI) and ask for your credit and then I will keep your gas, gold, copper etc., today they want to repeat it). They promoted the raised taxes for public services privatized by foreign capital that have monopolies. The bureaucrat bourgeoisie yearns for the old regime of state protection that does not have the autonomy of the “multilateral credit organizations”. Currently, in these elections the comprador bourgeoisie presents the daughter of the perpetrator of genocide as a figurehead, competing with the bureaucrat bourgeoisie (Humala). Both are for whom serve the big capital better, they are ready to sign any commitment presented to them in order to then go on exploiting and oppressing the people.
Thus, the people only has one road, the democratic road, the people’s war, to demolish the old state. Not get into the line behind any faction like the revisionists do shamelessly, the revisionist and capitulationist ROL [right opportunist line: ed.] with their proposal for capitulation with Peace Accords. They have achieved nothing but more hunger, more unemployment, more malnutrition, more repression from the old state with their policy of criminalizing the struggles, to fight every protest ruthlessly. Bureaucrat capitalism matures the conditions for the revolution and the triumph.
People’s war and the struggles of the Peruvian people
We reaffirm ourselves in that “the Party must reorganize itself on democratic centralism, with a single set of statutes and a discipline that is the same for everyone and ‘with one single organ of leadership at the head, i.e.: the Party Congress and, in the intervals between one Congress and the next, the Central Committee, with the submission of the minority to the majority, the different organizations to the central organs, and the lower organs to the higher ones”.
Spread a clear understanding of the people’s war in the 31st anniversary, our course, the current situation and the perspective, so that the class, the peasants and the people in general understand this.
That by applying our general laws we will reach our goal communism. The revolution is supported here, and the support from abroad is necessary; we continue to fight and we prepare ourselves for any eventuality. The successful actions of the PLA that shake the length and breadth of the country are carried out along with the masses’ struggles for demands, under the leadership of the Party.
The class, the people and the masses participate in the people’s war expressing its character as a war of the masses, expressing a leap in linking its struggle for demands to political struggle; see what is the role of the reactionary state, the state that must be fought with a higher level of organization, with plans, and in all eventualities, the Party has always been with the miners, teachers, with the jungle communities, universities; they are more ready to give their lives to defend the waters of their peoples, their land, their working day, their work stability, struggling against the SERVIS. The congresswoman Gloria Ramos says: “the main cause of the conflicts in our country is the government. ‘With the promotion of the package of legal decrees (DL) within the frame of implementing the FTA tries to damage the territories of the peasants and native peoples and make it easier for big capital to enter without the consent nor the permission of the communities’, the 99 legal decrees need to be revised, the DLs harm the territories of the indigenous peoples; create the mechanisms and strategies necessary to fulfill Agreement 169 of the ILO and try to promote the sustainable development of the communities in the Amazon and Andes”.
In Peru there are 233 social conflicts. Of these, 159 are “active” and within that group there are 92 that find themselves in the process of “dialogue”, according to the last report of the Defensoría del Pueblo [“the people’s defenders” – transl.]. 74 others are in a “latent” state. So now they say active, dialogues and latent – they do not understand, these are struggles for demands that advance in understanding and see the political character; there are leaps compared to the ’90s and they are advancing in their class conscience.
According to the report of the Defensoría del Pueblo: “the greatest number of social conflicts are located in the department of Ancash (26 cases), Puno and Lima (21 cases). The socio-environmental conflicts constitute 50,2% (117 cases) of the total. Then follows the conflicts concerning local government with 11,2% (26 cases), and the conflicts concerning national government with 10,3% (24 cases)”.
In all these struggles the people are rising up resolutely, confronting laws that give carte blanche to shoot to kill; Law 29166: a law that establishes rules for the employment of force for the personnel of the Armed Forces on the national territory, Law 28222, with which the executive power in 2007 approved eleven legal decrees for the legislation concerning organized crime, and that clash with this Constitution, establishing among other things sanctions for those who block a highway, disqualification for public servants who support labor demands, or declaring immunity for the members of the Armed Forces and the National Police that cause injuries or death “in the fulfillment of their duty”, among other things; and with the shameless role of reactionary journalists as informers, who film in order to hand over to the police; we will strike correspondingly against these miserable errand boys. Concretely, there is an increase and higher quality of the struggles of the Peruvian people; they reaffirm themselves in the just and correct revolutionary violence to defend themselves and conquer their demands, ready to pay the price, clearly understanding that they are fighting against the old state, and that the tables of dialogue are the antechamber to more repression. The person responsible for the area of social conflicts in the Defensoría del Pueblo, Rolando Luque, says: “…in the last three years, more than 80 people have died and 1200 have been wounded”. He was underestimating, or did not dare say the truth.
Concretely, the people is raising its struggles for demands and the Party always stands by it; therefore they reject and condemn the miserable capitulators of the ROL, that only are for making themselves comfortable in parliament seats and city halls, to become authorities in order to continue commanding the police and put themselves at the disposition of the factions of bureaucrat capitalism.
On the other hand, imperialism and reaction, in their eagerness to annihilate the people’s war, use the masses as cannon fodder, so a contest for the masses presents itself. The people become more and more the arena of contest and the contradiction develops itself in a bloody and complex way between the reaction and imperialism on one hand, wanting to mobilize the masses for their counter subversive war, and us on the other hand, to mobilize them for the people’s war.
Peruvian people, we call you to boycott these elections; they are only for changing who will exploit the people more, who will oppress them; it is a necessity of bureaucrat capitalism. They tell us there will be change, honesty, etc. and hide their true class interests: how to implement their food monopoly, maintain their SERVISes, to keep the salaries low; it is a competition between the comprador and the bureaucrat bourgeoisie, it is the struggle for whom will oppress the people, painting themselves as defenders of the people; enough already!
ELECTIONS, NO! PEOPLE’S WAR, YES!
LONG LIVE THE XXXI ANNIVERSARY OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR!
LONG LIVE THE GLORIOUS COMMUNIST PARTY OF PERU!
LONG LIVE CHAIRMAN GONZALO!
LONG LIVE MARXISM-LENINISM-MAOISM, GONZALO THOUGHT, PRINCIPALLY GONZALO THOUGHT!
ELECTIONS, NO! PEOPLE’S WAR, YES!
TO THE PERU PEOPLE’S MOVEMENT:
APPLY MAOISM AND CRUSH REVISIONISM!
MAY MAOISM ASSUME THE COMMAND OF THE NEW GREAT WAVE OF THE WORLD PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION!
|“The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in historical perspective is the most significant aspect of Chairman Mao’s development of Marxism-Leninism; it is the solution of the great pending question of the continuation of the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat; ‘it represents a new stage, even deeper and broader, in the development of the socialist revolution in our country’…”.“The Communist Party of Peru, through the faction led by Chairman Gonzalo that drove forward the reconstitution, took up Marxism-Leninism-Maoism in 1966; in 1979 the slogan ‘Uphold, defend and apply Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung thought!’, in 1981: ‘Towards Maoism!’; and in 1982 Maoism as an integral part and higher development of the ideology of the international proletariat: Marxism-Leninism-Maoism…”
Fundamental Documents, PCP
The PCP salutes the work developed by the Peru People’s Movement (MPP), in developing the current international campaign: Apply Maoism and Crush Revisionism! conceived as a part of the task of serving to impose Maoism as Command and Guide of the World Proletarian revolution! and May Maoism Assume the Command of the New Great Wave of the World Proletarian Revolution! A task put forward by Chairman Gonzalo and that the PCP is developing since 1982, applying and showing the world the universal validity of our scientific ideology of the proletariat, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism.
The Party demands that the MPP applies the directives to be able to serve the unity of the international communist movement, and we hope that the campaign contributes to overcome the differences, strengthen its unity and create conditions for calling a conference with representatives of the Communist Parties and revolutionary organizations. There are currently many differences concerning principles; however complex they may be, we must unite our forces and strive to strengthen the Communist Parties in the struggle against Yankee imperialism.
We must defend the unity in the ICM, struggle against splits in the heart of the movement, combat those who want to liquidate, those who from the outside, without having participated in meetings, without having put forward things as should be done with documents, pronounce themselves against the unity and call for the formation of new organizations. They clearly apply the revisionist politics of: “since the things I say are not being done, I will go and form another organization”. These are the ones that capitulate, the ones that run away without waging two line struggle, and want to use other Parties that talk or act on their behalf. From the coming meetings, the leap will come.
Comrades, let us reaffirm ourselves in what Chairman Mao put forward:
“A most important lesson from the experience of the international communist movement is that the development and victory of a revolution depend on the existence of a revolutionary proletarian party. There must be a revolutionary party. There must be a revolutionary party built according to the revolutionary theory and revolutionary style of Marxism-Leninism. There must be a revolutionary party able to integrate the universal truth of Marxism-Leninism with the concrete practice of the revolution in its own country. There must be a revolutionary party able to link the leadership closely with the broad masses of the people. There must be a revolutionary party that perseveres in the truth, corrects its errors and knows how to conduct criticism and self-criticism.”
Combat the revisionist positions that put forward:
“That there is a great disorder in the International Communist Movement, and the attempts that are made to make a joint declaration have caused even more disagreement… The struggle for communist unity on the world level finds itself in a very complicated situation and it is without doubt a golden opportunity for the liquidationist elements to cause harm. The important thing for those who want to struggle for communist unity is thus to put the principles of Marxism in the first place and nothing else.”
This campaign has the objective of serving the campaign May Maoism Assume the Command of the New Great Wave of the World Proletarian Revolution! It will serve to unite the communists, to develop a correct two line struggle, crush the revisionists, crush the peace accord here and in the world; it will serve to initiate people’s war. That is how it is! The revisionists are panicking and see everything black as their tomb; they want amnesty, they think it is enough to only put principles and nothing more; “line is enough” once again. They see splitting in everything, they are the ones that aim to form groups, and work without proletarian leadership, they are the ones that list problems in order to question the revolutionary organizations – old positions combated here.
We must insist with the Parties and revolutionary organizations in the fundamental point of Maoism, the power; the power under the leadership of the proletariat, in the democratic revolution, in the socialist revolution and the cultural revolutions. The power based on an armed force led by the Communist Party, conquered and defended through the people’s war. For us this is of the utmost importance; not understanding and setting aside the fundamental point of Maoism has led some members of the RIM to develop revolution detached from the question of the power, trying to destroy the old state without building the new power, being the principal aspect; it is a war that does not build or exercise the new power, the new politics, the new economy, the new culture, and the revolution cannot advance – see the situation in Nepal. This is a principal problem that must be addressed extensively in the RIM. The experience of all the Communist Parties that develop people’s war must serve to embody and apply Maoism.
Therefore it is crucial to strive for the RIM to call an Expanded Conference with the participation of all its members, to address the following points:
1. Evaluation of the application of Maoism. The fundamental point of Maoism, and the Great Cultural Revolution.
2. The experience of the international proletariat, principally of those that develop people’s war.
3. The struggle against the revisionism of today.
4. Other important points that the other members put forward.
Comrades, drive the debate concerning the application of Maoism to crush revisionism and combat parliamentary cretinism; a debate that is necessary in the international communist movement and the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement. It has to serve the task put forward by Chairman Gonzalo: May Maoism Assume the Command of the New Great Wave of the World Proletarian Revolution! grasping the experience of the Communist Party of China, especially the Cultural Revolution.
Bring the Party’s experience in detail, in these 31 years of glorious people’s war; let us see some principal aspects: how the PCP is firmly applying our ideology Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism; and in particular for us Gonzalo thought, the concentrical construction of the three instruments of the revolution, the militarization of the Party, the principle of Great Leadership and Great leaders of the revolution; that the revolution is not led from the prisons. That being firmly settled in and starting from communist principles allows us to maintain the course of the revolution laid down by the Party and the Congress; this has allowed us to confront the arrest of the Great Leadership and of leaders of the Central Committee, confront the inflection of the PLA, of the New Power, confront the campaigns of encirclement and annihilation, maintain high the banner of the world revolution; aspects that each one must be developed. The PCP, keeping in mind the experience of the international proletariat facing the loss of Chairman Mao, and of Comrade Stalin, considered that a ROL [Right opportunist line] could be structured and raise its head intending to take the Party by assault, and in the name of Chairman Gonzalo raise red banners to combat the revolution, wanting to sustain and promote capitulation; they resumed this saying that “…the PCP made the strategic turnabout after the arrest of Chairman Gonzalo and the Historical Central Leadership, where they had to develop a New Strategy, new GPL [General Political Line – transl.], new tactic, new construction work, mass work, etc. A new line that would have to be imposed in struggle defeating the previous line…”
There they argue for the retreat of the world revolution, there these miserable ones, now in detention, say: “That the people’s war should not have been initiated in 1980, we are in retreat, …imperialism is strong”, negating the strategic offensive of the world revolution, when they some months before were boasting, without meaning it, that “the strategic equilibrium shakes the country more”. Facing the arrest of Chairman Gonzalo, the whole Party closed ranks around the Central Committee, all the Party members reaffirmed themselves in maintaining the course of the revolution and applying the Speech of Chairman Gonzalo, in warding off and crushing every attack from within and outside the Party. Defend Chairman Gonzalo’s life.
The Party confronted and stopped the ROL, miserable SIN agents, from taking the regional committees. They were hit forcefully as the traitors they are. The ROL staged and continues to put together hoaxes, peace accords (imperialism’s plan for wherever there is revolution, see the role of the UN), we must look at the evidence. In the prisons they used leaders that had influence, who said: “I met with the Chairman and he said we have to struggle for the peace accord”. The concrete fact is that the Chairman has not made any public declaration! No one can affirm that the Chairman has expressed himself publicly after the Speech; everything else is: letters, videos, that “he told me or they said”, that he “wrote a book” etc.: anything and everything can be said on paper.
Comrades, since before the ILA we are forged in that the war is not stopped for a minute, it is that simple and concrete; to not lower the banner of the revolution under any circumstance, the point is to continue applying the principles, for us principally Gonzalo thought.
We would like to share our experiences together with other Communist Parties. To the RIM we reiterate the great responsibility; the international proletariat demands more people’s war, we must struggle unconditionally to unite the communists of the world. There have been milestones since the triumph of the Chinese revolution that the proletariat must assimilate in order to then apply them. There are problems in the ideological and political line that the RIM has not known to put forward correctly, and it did not take position at the right time in the struggle against the revisionism of today. There is lack of understanding and in some cases even opposition to the fundamental point of Maoism.
Concerning the Middle East; Yankee imperialism, Zionism and Saudi Arabia are trying to restrain and lead astray the struggle of the Arab people, and they are colluding in order to replace one tyrant with another, to position themselves better in this region and expand their territorial hegemony. To this end they will develop greater genocide. It is urgent to connect with the Arabic communists. It is a subject that must be developed more thoroughly.
Comrades, we wish you success in the tasks for this year; firmly grasp the Party responsibility, apply the directives and the guiding quotes above. Combat revisionism and petty groups that swarm abroad, that work with the reaction.
