Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!


The Peru People’s Movement, generated organization of the Communist Party of Peru for the Party work abroad, together with the international proletariat and all the communists and revolutionaries of the world, salutes this XXX anniversary of the powerful people’s war in Peru. We do so with the boundless optimism that belongs to our class; because as Marxists, which today means as Marxist-Leninist-Maoists, we know that the new will always prevail over the old, and that a handful of exploiters cannot hold back the working masses of the world when these rise in arms to claim their rights. These are not mere slogans, but scientific truths: imperialism finds itself in its general and final crisis, while the international proletariat and the peoples of the world assume their responsibility more and more every day, taking up arms against the imperialists, rejecting the old exploiters’ and oppressors’ states and all their governments, and increasingly grasping and applying the ideology of the international proletariat, today Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism.

Our people’s war in Peru is a brilliant example of the fact that when you firmly stand by the principles of Marxism and apply them in order to change the world, always in implacable struggle against those who propose abandoning the same principles, you will not only achieve great success in your revolutionary struggle, but also give great contributions to the development of our ideology and the world revolution as a whole.
It was by defending, upholding and applying the principles of Maoism that our Great Leader Chairman Gonzalo crushed the first right opportunist line and personally led the glorious ILA-80, the initiation of the people’s war in 1980. It was by applying Maoism to the conditions of our country and thus developing this people’s war, that the guiding thought for our revolution arose, our all-powerful ideology Gonzalo thought – and thereby proving and defining Maoism as the third, new and higher stage of Marxism, universally valid and to be applied in all countries. Furthermore, it is by defending, upholding and applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, principally Gonzalo Thought, that the Communist Party of Peru today crushes every single one of the enemy’s hoaxes and campaigns, and in the face of every kind of obstacles and difficulties develops the people’s war and fulfills its role as the torch of the world revolution.

In this way, under the firm leadership of the Central Committee applying Gonzalo thought and the concentric construction of the three instruments, our Party today is defending the New Power and reconquering what was lost, extending the zones of influence of the people’s war; showing the world that we are maintaining our course, the conquest of power in the whole country, and that the Communist Party of Peru is the vanguard of the Peruvian proletariat. The various struggles of the masses are developing more and more in conjunction with the actions carried out by the People’s Liberation Army, always under the all-embracing leadership of the Party – like the most recent actions of armed agitation and propaganda in Apurimac and the guerilla action against the Tutumbaro “anti-subversive” base in Siva, Ayacucho on the 30th of April, just to name a couple of those that the reactionary press have decided to make public these last few weeks.

Imperialism, reaction and revisionism, desperate before this unstoppable march of the people’s war and its repercussions in the world, have not been able to come up with anything new – so they keep trying to revive the same old hoaxes. The Peruvian reaction, under Yankee supervision, tries to recycle the hoax of “peace accords” with all their letters (like the “peace letters” written by Merino Bartel), videos (personally edited by Montesinos) and books. As always, this is done with the direct collaboration of the rats of the ROL, who are now preparing to participate in the whole reactionary election farce. Our answer to all this is more people’s war – and our demand that Chairman Gonzalo be presented publicly and make a pronouncement before the national and international press, in person and on live TV!

On the world level, the enemy is trembling with fear as the contributions of Chairman Gonzalo and our people’s war are being taken up by communists all over the world and Maoism is being embodied in revolutionary wars like those in India and the Philippines. The exploiters and their lackeys hopelessly try to stop this march of the peoples with more genocide and more repression, while at the same time carrying out their plan of “peace accords” and domesticated “communist parties” to spread parliamentary cretinism. Is this how they hope to save their dying system – with so-called “communist” and “left-wing” governments, “multi-party socialism” under imperialist control, with so-called Maoists who hand over the new power and the arms of the masses to the enemy, like in Nepal, and self-titled “Marxist” theoreticians who “investigate” while the masses continue to be slaughtered and exploited? The Marxist-Leninist-Maoists, principally Maoists, the international proletariat and the oppressed peoples have had enough of these investigations, this peace under the bayonets and these rotten old theories that belong on history’s garbage heap.

That is why the Communist Party of Peru calls all the communists and revolutionaries, all the Parties and organizations of the international communist movement, especially those in the RIM, to participate in the debate in order to make the necessary evaluation of the application of Maoism – to unite under Maoism and unmask, crush and sweep away the revisionism of today. We wage our people’s war as a part of and serving the world proletarian revolution and it is in this spirit that we celebrate this XXX anniversary.
