Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!


“Our Party upholds that in the present world there are three fundamental contradictions: 1) The contradiction between oppressed nations, on one hand, and imperialist superpowers and powers on the other hand; this included here is the thesis of three worlds being outlined, and we formulate it like this because the core of this contradiction is with the imperialist superpowers but there is also contradiction with the imperialist powers. This is the main contradiction and its solution is the development and victory of the revolutions of new democracy. 2) The contradiction proletariat-bourgeoisie, its solution being the socialist revolution and in perspective the proletarian cultural revolution. 3) The interimperialist contradiction: between the imperialist superpowers, between the superpowers and powers and between the imperialist powers themselves, which leads to war for world hegemony and imperialist wars of plunder, against which the proletariat must wage the people’s war and in perspective the world people’s war. We do not count the contradiction socialism-capitalism today, because it is only expressed on the ideological and political level since socialism that does not exist as a state; today there is no socialist system. There was, and to uphold that it exists today is essentially to state that the USSR is socialist, which is revisionism.”

“Chairman Mao Tsetung develops Lenin’s strategy focusing on the great importance that the national liberation movement has for the world revolution, because imperialism exploits the oppressed nations more and more, and these rise up in powerful revolutionary storms that must be led by their Communist Parties. Thus, the national liberation movement is merged with international proletarian movement and these two forces drive forward the development of world history. Chairman Gonzalo teaches us that the strategy we communists have to develop must take as its starting point the bases laid down by Lenin and developed by Chairman Mao.”

The Central Committee gives its full and unconditional salute and subjection to our Great leadership, Chairman Gonzalo, Great leader of the Party and the revolution, to the heroic Communist Party of Peru, to its whole system of Party leadership. Likewise, it extends its salute to each and every one of the leaders, cadres and militants of the Communist Party of Peru, as well as the combatants of the People’s Liberation Army, to the People’s Committees and the masses that work with the Party in Peru and abroad; and to the people in general, on this very important day for the international proletariat, the birthday of Chairman Mao Tsetung.

Today we are living in the period of contention between North American, Russian and Chinese imperialism; this is how the three main enemies on world level are defined today, for us who develop democratic or socialist revolution with people’s war and also for the nationalist movements. What must be done is that each revolution or movement must define its main enemy and ward off the domination of the other superpower or the other powers.

In our country, the domination of Yankee imperialism continues in collusion with the big bourgeoisie and the landlords. On world level the contention is sharpened between the three superpowers for world hegemony; we struggle against North American imperialism, against feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism, but we cannot allow Yankee imperialism to be replaced by the domination of Russian or Chinese imperialism or any other power. See how the APRA receives donations from China and the ROL is paving the way for them. In Syria, the direct aggression comes from Yankee imperialism accompanied by the powers Germany, France, England, Spain etc. (there are more than 50 countries making up the coalition against Syria) who contend for hegemony with Russian and Chinese imperialism. There, the struggle must be waged against Yankee imperialism as the main enemy, and not allowing the domination of Russian imperialism or other powers to enter; the problem is that the struggle of national liberation is not developed because of the lack of a Communist Party.

Starting from the just and correct thesis of Chairman Mao of the three worlds taking shape, the Party has now defined, concerning the current situation, that three worlds are taking shape in a very clear way. When it comes to the first world, it is the three superpowers, USA, Russia, China, who are those that contend for world hegemony and may unleash an imperialist world war. They are superpowers because they are more powerful economically, politically and militarily than the other powers. These superpowers have their contradictions, with open differences between them, and they move within the law of collusion and struggle to redivide the world between them, even going as far as establishing military encirclements against each other, while at the same time they negotiate oil and gas deals.

In the second world we find the imperialist powers that are not superpowers, that is those with less economic, political and military power such as Germany, France, England etc., who have contradictions with the superpowers because they have to suffer the imposition of the Yuan, the devaluation of the Dollar, the gold reserves, economic sanctions, military restrictions, and the political impositions. These imperialist powers are lying in wait to become part of the new superpowers (in particular Germany is waiting and watching). Presently they are participating in wars of aggression against the oppressed nations using regular armies of mercenaries like the Daesh, and there are also sharp contradictions between them: over their old and new colonies, oil, gas, drug traffic etc. The Third World is made up of the oppressed nations of Asia, Africa and Latin America, that are colonies or semicolonies where there is no attempt to destroy feudalism, but only to develop bureaucrat capitalism, being subjected to one or another superpower and/or power.


THE CONTENTION IN THE MIDDLE EAST: Concentration of military forces for immediate deployment, oil and gas lines

The two-front struggle of Yankee imperialism has accelerated the collusion of Russia and China, worsening the state balance by consumption in armed operations (covert or not), arms purchases and financing to set up regular armies with high-tech armament, saying it is to support “opposition rebels or mujahedin”.

Let us look at the previous Yankee governments: during Clinton from 1993 to 2001 they develop the “dismemberment of Yugoslavia through war and genocide”, with George W Bush from 2001 to 2009 they unchained a “total war against terrorism” with the September 11 attack as justification, already having invaded Afghanistan, arming the “mujahedin”, and continuing with Iraq under the pretext of the “existence of weapons of mass destruction”. They continued in their insatiable greed for blood and power with the “Orange Revolution” in the Ukraine in 2004 and the Rose one in Georgia in 2003. Imperialism howled about “preventive war” and “defending democracy” to justify military actions, because they already saw looming that the imperialist powers Russia and China were questioning its hegemony. Chairman Gonzalo’s speech demanded of us and armed us as communists to fulfill our condition, to confront the sinister plans of imperialism (plans pushed by the gang of Brzezinski, Kissinger, Stratford, Soros and other perverts); and until today they have failed completely in the defense of the sole gendarme.

Today, applying Gonzalo Thought, we must solve the new problems that the world revolution demands! We urge the communists to raise energy in abundance, to unite us, and as our condition demands, with firmness and resolve. The peoples of the world call for revolution! Make brave efforts to unite us for the Marxism of today: Maoism.

How different is the logic of imperialism from the logic of the people! Make trouble, fail, make trouble again, fail again . . . until their doom - that is the logic of the imperialists and all reactionaries the world over in dealing with the people's cause and they will never go against this logic. This is a Marxist law.

Let us see the failures of the Yankee strategy since 2010: the uprisings known as the Arab Spring (“The Jasmine Revolution” in Tunisia 2010-2011, the “White Revolution” in Egypt in 2011, the war in Libya in 2011, the “Pink Ribbon Revolution” in Yemen in 2011-2012), the objective of which was to change the correlation of forces in the oil industry for the benefit of the French, British and U.S. powers, but the reality confirms the advance of the group Russia-Turkey-Iran-Syria preparing their new oil silk road. The importance of Syria is not only linked to its reserves of the black gold in Tayem, the gas fields of Qarah, the oil wells in Yezl, Hasaka and Deir Ez-Zor, but to its key geostrategic position for Russia and China.

The NATO is dominated by the U.S. and today in 2017 with more presence. Do not forget its current role as gendarme, the rest is rhetoric. It is a command structure that ultimately is based on Yankee power and military priority. Everything else is effectively vassalage. The overthrow of Gadhafi was supported and celebrated with champagne by the European leaders. The Italian bases were used to bomb Libya, and the British Special Forces participated in training the mercenaries as a regular army (they say “islamist rebels”). French airplanes mercilessly attacked the defenseless people when they bombed Libya, helping to track down Muammar Gadhafi and lynch him.

What was established by Chairman Gonzalo, that “Maoism, being embodied in the peoples of the world, marches unstoppably to command the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution”: in Peru, India, Philippines, Nepal and other countries, hundreds of thousands of workers and peasants under the red banner of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism have risen up in arms under the leadership of Communist Parties, Parties that are facing new problems of the revolution and grasping Maoism to solve them. Today we face three imperialist superpowers who struggle to redivide the world between them, with each one of them making efforts to obtain strategic superiority. The superpowers Russia and China come from the restoration of capitalism (from the leaders who took the capitalist road), a process that was carried out by arresting and murdering proven communist leaders, and today they are calling certain leaders in Nepal, India, Philippines, PKK, RCP to emulate them, proposing: peace agreements, capitulation, amnesty (a dark work that they carry out with leaders in prison) calling the Party to capitulation (here they were given a powerful answer that stopped them short). Other situations: some Parties focus on the counterrevolutionary atrocities carried out by the reactionary forces to break the morale of the peoples; watch out carefully with these leaders who promote and magnify these campaigns, do not confuse this with heroic actions. And mainly we face problems principally in the ideological sphere, which makes it urgent to develop rectification campaigns and verification of the militancy from the Central Committee to strengthen the leap and go from strategic defensive to strategic equilibrium to the conquest of power if that is the case. This action must start from the Central Committee that is the vortex of the struggle and vaccinate all the committees, never scattered, consider the system of leadership. Crush the rightist positions and do not let them become structured, do not let them raise their heads, crush the pairs; it is the Central Committee that must firmly guide the leap in the ideological sphere, this will permit making the leap in the organizational, never the other way around. Not like the RCP, selling its conceptual books (like the Watchtower) explaining “What is Communism?”, “What is revolution?”, “Which tasks?” From bookish concepts they cannot get any further, from their founding until today they do not advance. In all the mentioned organizations we call to the combative left in each Party to learn from Chairman Mao: “Bombard the headquarters”, through which he blew the lid off the bourgeois headquarters of Liu Shao-chi. In a letter to the Red Guards, Chairman Mao pointed out that their revolutionary actions "manifest the indignation and condemnation against the landlord class, the bourgeoisie, imperialism, revisionism and their lackeys, who exploit and oppress the workers, peasants, revolutionary intellectuals and revolutionary parties and groups, and testifies that it is right to rebel against reactionaries; I give them my warm support". And today, this fits like hand in glove when it comes to some opportunist leaders: they are capitulating, they are for parliamentary cretinism, they are for handing over the people's committees and arms. In this new situation we communists must confront it applying Maoism, with firm resolution in uniting us, planning joint actions with flexibility, to go on to bigger actions; we must develop a sagacious and crushing communist struggle, strive to unite us and sweep away the new batch of revisionists.

The PCP, basing itself on what is established in its International Line, has carried out an implacable struggle within the ICM against revisionism: for the comprehension of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as third, new and higher stage of Marxism; for the concrete application of Maoism to the conditions of each country, against the hegemonist tendencies of the RCP in the RIM and its opposition to taking up Maoism; for the universal validity of the people's war; for the universal contributions of Chairman Gonzalo, mainly the militarization of the Communist Parties, and other points.

The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution initiated and led personally by Chairman Mao under the conditions of the dictatorship of the proletariat, a great revolution in the superstructure. We have the objective of crushing revisionism, recuperating the part of the power usurped by the bourgeoisie, exercise fully the dictatorship of the proletariat in the superstructure, including all the domains of culture, consolidate and strengthen the economic base of socialism and secure that our country continues to advance on the socialist path.

In the X Plenary Session of the VIII Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, held in 1962, Chairman Mao pointed out: "To overthrow the political power it is always necessary, primarily, to create public opinion and work in the ideological terrain. That is how the revolutionary classes proceed, and also the counterrevolutionary classes". With these words Chairman Mao dealt a precise blow to Liu Shao-chi's revisionist counterrevolutionary clique . It was precisely with the one objective of preparing the public opinion for overthrowing the dictatorship of the proletariat that this clique made such feverish efforts to take the ideological field and the superstructure in their hands, and exercised a rabid counterrevolutionary dictatorship over the proletariat in the different departments it controlled, and Chairman Mao also spread the word: we had to destroy, first of all, their counterrevolutionary public opinion with revolutionary public opinion.

Seeing the two camps, there are immediate tasks presented to the proletariat, for the communists to develop the rectification campaign, verification of the militancy and guarding the system of leadership like the apple of our eye, as an application of an implacable struggle against revisionism and in firm application of the GPCR.

Today on this birthday of Chairman Mao we reaffirm ourselves in what Chairman Gonzalo established, that MAOISM, BEING EMBODIED IN THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD, MARCHES UNSTOPPABLY TO COMMAND THE NEW GREAT WAVE OF THE WORLD PROLETARIAN REVOLUTION". We call the whole Peruvian people to fight against the traitors and revisionists of the old and the new batch, solving the problems that the revolution faces today and as such the solution shall come from the barrels of the guns of our all-powerful military theory: the People's War.

Finally, we call the Communist Parties to uphold, defend and apply Maoism for it to be the only command and guide of the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution. It is described here above how they go from failure to failure; let us go on to blow them to pieces with the deep class hatred we have.
