Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!
LONG LIVE THE 78th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDATION OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF PERU!
PCP-CC, August 2006,
The Communist Party of Peru today, on the 7th of October, celebrates the 78th anniversary of its foundation leading the people´s war, conscious of the great historical transcendence that this has not only for Peru but on the international level, because it is the proof of the universal validity of Maoism. Therefore, on this anniversary of our Party, the Peru People´s Movement reaffirms itself in its firm promise to serve it more and more and better and better and that the correct voice of the people´s war clearly reaches the communists and revolutionaries of the world. A people´s war that is the first, the one that breaches, in this stage of strategic offensive of the world revolution and of this complex series of wars of all types in which imperialism and the world reaction is sinking, and in which we finally sweep them off the face of the Earth. People´s war initiated and led personally by Chairman Gonzalo, who is the one that has defined Maoism as the third, new and higher stage of our ideology, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and applied it creatively to our concrete reality, Gonzalo thought, as the solid foundation of the Great Leadership of the Party and the revolution.
Because of what has been stated above, the campaign for Maoism that the Communist Party of Peru leads is inseparably united with the campaign for the defense of the life of Chairman Gonzalo and of his all-powerful thought, that because of the development of the national and international class struggle has become the principal question for the people´s war and the world revolution. Therefore the MPP has consciously and decisively taken up the campaign for the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (the GPCR, initiated in May 1966). A celebration campaign that we have initiated brilliantly, and that lasts for one year, conceived within the campaign for Maoism that the Communist Party of Peru carries out since 1982. A celebration campaign that is therefore inseparable from the campaign for the defense of the life of Chairman Gonzalo.
The 40 year celebration of the GPCR is of great importance; the GPCR, as Chairman Gonzalo teaches, is the greatest political process of humanity, not only for its immense dimensions when it comes to masses, but for the political level that it reached and because it expresses the highest development of the world proletarian revolution. It is the most grandiose struggle led by the Communist Party of China and Chairman Mao Tsetung himself; the decisive struggle for the continuation of the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat, one of the great milestones in the course of the proletariat´s struggle for power; an epic that has solved the then pending problem of the continuation of the revolution and has laid down the essential task of changing the soul, the problem of the ideology, making us see that it is not simple but complex and arduous. His immense lessons are invaluable, but furthermore we must always remember that with the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, Marxism-Leninism became Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, in synthesis Maoism; and this for the world proletarian revolution, for the Peruvian revolution and the people´s war obviously it is of immeasurable importance’. (PCP-CC, Two Hills’, 1991).
More so now - when imperialism, world reaction and revisionism, in collusion and conflict, as part of their general counterrevolutionary offensive, try to dumbfound us with the so-called failure of Marxism, of socialism, that the dictatorship of the proletariat does not work there is the necessity of attacking and sweeping away revisionism, the new revisionism and every position of bourgeois pacifism. Imperialism unfolds its war of aggression against the oppressed countries in the name of bourgeois democracy and the struggle against terrorism’: in Peru, the reaction develops an intense campaign in the name of bourgeois democracy and the struggle against narco-terrorism’.
In Peru and in the world the point of collusion between all of them is against the revolutionary violence and the dictatorship of the proletariat. Our Party, heading the revolutionary counteroffensive, as part of the task of building the conquest of power in the whole country, upholding, defending and applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, upholds the revolutionary violence and the people´s war, the Power as a front of classes led by the proletariat and principally as dictatorship of the proletariat, as part of its task to also serve the world revolution. Hence the importance of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the GPCR to thoroughly combat this reactionary trade. As Chairman Gonzalo puts forward: Nothing of what has happened denies Marxism, nor the necessity and importance of socialism, nor the irrepressible march to communism: the irreplaceable goal. The question is, we repeat: the insufficient knowledge of the laws of socialism because of its short time of development; the inevitable struggle between restoration and counterrestoration; and the sinister deeds of revisionism nursed by imperialism and in collusion with it. The question is, in synthesis, the continuation of the revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat although it is still pending to establish the laws of socialism in the class struggle, to discover them, understand them and apply them fully and completely, for the dictatorship of the proletariat to take root and to consolidate it, taking the power more and more from below to guarantee its exercise by the masses under the leadership of the Party’. (PCP-CC, cited document, 1991 the underlining is ours).
And, in Peru and in the world, imperialism, reaction and the new revisionism, in collusion, unload their ferocious attacks and create from nothing all kinds of filthy hoaxes against the Great Leadership of the Party and the revolution, Chairman Gonzalo and his all-powerful thought, against the Party and the people´s war. Therefore the Communist Party of Peru has called to unmask and crush the new counterrevolutionary hoax of general amnesty’ staged by Yankee imperialism through this fascist and genocidal APRA government, with the complicity of the traitors of the ROL, in essence revisionist and capitulationist, miserable ones that since 1992 started their sinister counterrevolutionary work in the prisons. And the Party, with people´s war, defends our Great Leadership against every attack from wherever it may come, crushing and blowing to pieces all the hoaxes of the reaction, as shall happen with this new counterrevolutionary hoax of general amnesty’, within the counterrevolutionary strategy of low-intensity war that will be unmasked, crushed and fully and completely defeated by the people´s war.
Thus the course of the revolution is firmly maintained and the carpet is pulled from under the feet of the reactionaries that is how to answer to the counterrevolutionary offensive and serve the defense and development of the people´s war and the new power. This is the positive experience of the PCP - the experience of the Party itself teaches us that we communists have to face complex situations and thus, the problem is to persist, the conditions are laid down by the very reality of the class struggle.
On the contrary, when one does not respond decisively against this counterrevolutionary offensive, the revolution will confront serious problems and there is the danger that the people´s war loses the course, as the Party points out in its most recent document, from August 2006, Crush the New Counterrevolutionary Hoax of General Amnesty!’, that says: Because of Chairman Gonzalo´s influence within the RIM, imperialism and revisionism were eager for the positions of the ROL to repercute in the RIM, attacking the Marxist thesis of Great Leaderships and Great Leaders of the revolution, with the so-called cult of personality, attacking the military theory, the people´s war, separating it from the Support Bases, its objective to aim at the fundamental in Gonzalo thought; the power.’ Positions of the ROL in Peru and of new revisionism on the world level, that want Maoism without people´s war, that try to separate people´s war from the new power.
All this has led to, as the above quoted document points out, some members supporting the thesis of multiparty democracy’, which will lead to lead astray the revolution, together with not understanding the Marxist thesis of Great Leadership, in spite of owning a great fire-power, and having the enemy ready to make concessions, and most importantly the growing support of the poor masses, they come with the multiparty democracy.’
This is the clear position of the PCP concerning the complex situation that the communists in Nepal have entered, and thus, for them as well, the question is to persist, firmly grasping Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism to defend and develop the people´s war, that is the instrument for conquering the power and also the instrument for maintaining and defending the new power based on an army or armed sea of masses willing and ready to go through all kinds of wars, but always within the laws of the people´s war. To never abandon the conception of the people´s war, under no circumstances, as Chairman Gonzalo demands.
On the contrary, today some members of the RIM, who with their silence support that the people´s war in Nepal is taken off course, do not want to mention the two line struggle that with certainty the communists there are unfolding, because these members of the RIM do not proceed like every communist must do, that applying the philosophy of struggle does not fear going against the current and open struggle against all that goes against the interests of the people, the principles of the Party and the people´s war, without ever conciliating with revisionism of any kind. We do not agree with them, we are for contributing to the development of the two line struggle inside the RIM concerning the fundamental question of Maoism, power, guiding thought and Great Leadership, people´s war and new power. We are for a broad debate that generates a broad movement of ideas in order to crush and sweep away the new revisionism and for Maoism to be imposed as the only ideological basis of unity in the RIM, raising its unity and thus achieve that this makes a greater leap in its development and serve more and better the reunification of the communists in the world.
Long live Chairman Gonzalo, Great Leader
of the Party and the revolution!
