Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!
LONG LIVE THE 31ST ANNIVERSARY OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR IN PERU!
The Peru People’s Movement, generated organization of the Communist Party of Peru for the Party work abroad, salutes the 31 years of glorious people’s war in Peru, our Great Leadership Chairman Gonzalo, the Central Committee and the whole system of Party leadership that, applying Gonzalo thought, continues to maintain the principles and the course of the revolution as they were established by our Great Leadership and his all-powerful thought, and thus continues to fulfill its role as vanguard of the Peruvian proletariat. We salute the heroic masses, mainly the poor peasants, that throughout these 31 years have been outstanding examples before the masses of the world, in giving their lives for the revolution, and they continue to do so today voluntarily and unconditionally – because they have nothing to lose but their chains.
It is important for us and for the communists of the world to grasp the whole process that led to the glorious Party decision to initiate the people’s war on the 17th of May 1980; Chairman Gonzalo forging the red fraction that reconstituted the Party in persistent, firm and perceptive two-line struggle against the revisionist lines; and crushing the first right opportunist line that opposed the initiation of the people’s war; as well as the process of developing this war; establishing the new power, defending it and developing it, reaching the point of establishing the Open People’s Committees, that still shine defiantly before the world as one more proof that the People’s War in Peru is the torch of the world revolution. Today, there are traitor rats who say that decision was wrong, that it was “wrong” to initiate the people’s war, and there are those around the world that take every chance to deny the importance of Chairman Gonzalo and our people’s war in order to play along with the imperialist plan of “peace accords”. And of course they do; because they know that it was precisely that decision, the glorious leap that was ILA-80, and that correct leadership and development of the people’s war in Peru, that played the key role in the establishment and the wide recognition of Maoism as the third, new and higher stage of Marxism and in the initiation of heroic armed struggle and people’s war in several countries around the world. So, for those who do not want revolution, those who want to use red banners only to promote their own careers in this rotten system of exploitation and oppression, those who do not want to pay the price that communists pay in order to crush this system, those who talk of transforming the world but do not want to transform themselves, those who want to turn proletarian internationalism into bourgeois “solidarity work” – for them, it is of course necessary to isolate and defame Chairman Gonzalo and the Communist Party of Peru, thus directly or indirectly spreading the hoaxes authored by the yankee CIA; that “Chairman Gonzalo is a traitor”, that “the PCP is divided”, that “the people’s war is over” etc. etc.
But our Party has never been paralyzed by these hoaxes or by those who vacillate. The Party continues to lead the people’s war on its unstoppable march, applying gonzalo thought to solve every problem that appears on the road of the revolution – such as the problem of leadership, that can only be forged in hard two-line struggle like Chairman Gonzalo teaches us. Today, in the midst of the boycott campaign against the elections of the old state, the People’s Liberation Army continues to develop crushing actions, such as the attack on the helicopter in Huachocolpa on the 11th of March – always under the all-embracing leadership of the Party. Likewise, our Party continues to fulfill its role as red fraction within the international communist movement, which has led to great victories in the struggle against new revisionism, against “peace accords” and capitulation. With its document “To the International Conference in Stockholm”, the Party took the initiative of calling for an extended meeting of the RIM to evaluate the application of Maoism, which is now giving repercussions among the Parties and organizations of the RIM and in the whole international communist movement.
In this way, the Party crushes the plans of imperialism, reaction and revisionism in Peru and on the world level; upholding, defending and applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo thought, principally Gonzalo thought.
LONG LIVE THE XXXI ANNIVERSARY OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR!
