India- SALUTE PEOPLE FOR NOT ACCEPTING FASCISM—OR LYING DOWN IN ITS HOTBED IN MUMBAI

SALUTE PEOPLE FOR NOT ACCEPTING FASCISM LYING DOWN IN ITS VERY HOTBED IN MUMBAI AND STANDING UP TO THE CHALLENGE.BY SHIMMERING THE SCARED FLAME OF LIBERATION—A MOST SIGNIFICANT EVENT WITH THE THREAT OF FASCISM  LOOMING.

By Harsh Thakor
Yesterday I was privileged to participate in a peoples convention on "Undeclared emergency 'launched by the 'Mumbai Save Democracy front' in Dadar Matunga cultural- center.” It was attended by about 500 persons condemning the fascist arrests of democrats and repression on people’s movements. I heard first hand reports on repression in Chattisgarh by Soni Sori by an Adivasi activist in Gadricholi and by a Dalit women worker from Reliance. With most illustrative examples they depicted how sincere democratic activists doing grassroots work were banned and arrested as Maoist or Naxals and how brutally the police came down on the Adivasis and workers in their day to day lives. The women worker from Reliance described how her husband was tormented who was the sole bread winner. The speakers most vividly illustrated with concrete examples how the state banged every nail in the coffin to suppress any resistance of the Dalit community for democracy. Sonu Sori expressed how she learned so much from being imprisoned itself about the autocratic nature of the state. Also heard a most touching speech by Sagar, son of Vernon Gonzalves. He recounted how he became an even stronger person with the attack on his father after being bewildered at first and how the experience revolutionized him. The programme concluded with a most spirited and enlivening programme by Kabir Kala Manch resurrecting the flame of resistance. Around 40 organizations participated. It was heartening to witness presence of so many youth. Some activists of leading years were present like Gurbir Singh, Uttam Ghosh, Sunil Dighe, Abhilash Ramchandran. Sanober Keswar, Subodh  More, Salim Saboowala, etc., which was also positive. On 12-10-2018 A People's Convention Against Undeclared Emergency was held at Dadar Matunga Cultural Centre Next to Yashwant Natya Mandir, Dadar, West Mumbai.

India- Salute the historic protest—October 2nd—lighting the spark of justice to release Manjit Dhaner, framed for murder and sentenced to life

By Harsh Thakor
SALUTE THE HISTORIC PROTEST IN BARNALA IN PUNJAB ON OCTOBER 2ND LIGHTING THE SPARK OF JUSTICE TO RELEASE MANJIT DHANER WHO WAS FRAMED ON FALSE CHARGES WITH LIFE SENTENCE FOR MURDERING KIRANJEET KAUR. A SPARK TURNED INTO A PRAIRIE FIRE AT THE VENUE. SYMBOLIZED THE STRUGGLE OF INDIAN OPRESSED MASSES AS A WHOLE TO RELEASE ACTIVISTS FRAMED REPRESENTING REVOLUTIONARY DEMOCRACY WHO ARE LANGUISHING BEHIND JAIL BARS.

The flame of justice was rekindled to its highest crescendo in Barnala in the grain market on October 2nd creating the vibrations of an Ocean. The issue was the release of Comrade Manjit Dhaner who was framed by a death sentence for the murder of girl Kiranjeet Kaur in 1997. Three persons namely Prem Kuman, Narain Dutt and Manjit Dhaner were framed on false charges. Of the 3 persons wrongly convicted Prem Kumar and Narain Dutt were pardoned in 2005 in a hearing by Karnal special court, but Dhaner was still imprisoned. In spite of a Supreme Court order in 2011 to release Dhaner the governor of Punjab refused to implement the resolution. The state government earlier had the audacity to oppose the pardoning of the killers arrested but the democratic movement prevented it. The committee formed to scrap the life sentence to Dhaner organized the rally.

Over 20,000 people converged reminiscent of an army turning a spark into a prairie fire. It comprised of over 40 organizations of peasants, youth, workers, women and government employees. Activists assembled from Bathinda, Barnala, Mansa, Ferozepur, Muktsar, Faridkot, Sangrur, Abohar and Kotkura, The majority of the participants were those belonging to the Bharatiya Kisan Union Dakaunda and Ugrahan factions. The rally was addressed by Buta Singh Burgill, Jogender Singh, Raminder Singh Patiala, Satnam Singh Ajnala, Zora Singh Nasrali and Prempal Kaur. Other participants included Raldu Singh Mansa, Gurdep Singh Sukhpur, Rajinder Badhode Kanwaljeet Khanna,Harjinder Kaur,Mahima Singh and Kulwant Rai. All speakers narrated how arresting democratic activists like Dhaner is part and parcel of the anti-people ruling class politics which perpetrates injustice on women and often works hand in hand with goonda elements. They vociferously asserted that if death sentence on Dhaner was not lifted in coming days the state would have to pay a big price. On October 4th the Supreme Court would conduct the hearing.

One of the most significant protests in the history of the revolutionary democratic movement of Punjab or of the democratic revolutionary resistance against injustice on framed activists symbolized the fight against injustice on political prisoners as a whole, in the semi-fascist socio-political system. It proved the great revolutionary potential of the masses of Punjab.

US- Protesters great Trump in Topeka, Kansas



A lot has been said about Republicans being angry at the way the Democrats treated Judge Brett Kavanaugh this week before he was voted in to the Supreme Court, but  there are plenty of Democrats who are angry at the way the Republicans have treated women abuse victims from those hearings.
We saw that this Saturday, as anti-Kavanaugh forces protested Donald Trump and his ilk at the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, KS.
President Donald Trump was in Kansas Saturday night, rallying for Governor hopeful Kris Kobach. 
The Kansas Expocentre in Topeka was filled with supporters at the Make America Great Again Rally. President Trump's 2020 campaign team says there were about 11,000 people in attendance. There were maybe 1,000 protesters outside in the rain that night, caring signs and marching outside the front of the Expocentre.
There were lots of signs at the event, including some women who chanted Trump, Kobach go away, racist, sexist anti-gay.
A protester from Lawrence, Jenna Groth, was there with two people.
"I think Trump is dishonest," she said. "He appeals to people who hate. Kris Kobach wants to suppress the vote."
The protesters had to brave cold temperatures, damp and sometimes rainy weather.
Some protesters compared Trump to Hitler.
Some People evoked the days of President Richard Nixon.

SALUTE KRANTIKARI PENDU MAZDOOR UNION FOR SHIMMERING FLAME OF AGRARIAN REVOLUTION IN RALLY AT LONGOWAL

By Harsh Thakor
SALUTE KRANTIKARI PENDU MAZDOOR UNION FOR SHIMMERING FLAME OF AGRARIAN REVOLUTION IN RALLY AT LONGOWAL VILLAGE IN PUNJAB ON OCTOBER 2ND.

In Punjab today 7 lakh Dalit families are still landless and1,50000 belong to the poor peasantry. 40 Lakh acres of land is lying vacant and unavailable. If all distributed every Dalit family could poses at least 4 and a half acres of land.

The conference or rally organised by Krantikari Pendu Mazdoor union in Longowal village in Punjab was an event not only of significance to Punjab but to the agrarian revolutionary movement in India as a whole. The theme was based on the path of the dalit community to attain liberation from the tyranny of the ruling classes and how Ambedkar and Sikhsim had to be interpreted in accordance to condition existing today.

A red spark literally lit the town hall in Longowal on October 3rd. 1500 Participants came from around 50 villages from Sangrur and Mansa...An event of great qualitative success which exposed how Punjab is still morally a semi-feudal state even if landlords of the conventional type are not operating. The event was held in the aftermath of a series of land captures of by Dalit labourers in villages like dhuri, Chajli, badli Kalan, jaloor etc.in Sangrur district. Meticulous efforts and planning were made to mobilize the Dalit community for the event by holding village level meetings all over the district.

There was a very fine introductory speech by Lakhweer Longowal the secretary of He Longowal KPMU unit where he summarised the tyranny the Dalit labourers faced at the hands of the ruling classes and the heroic land capture struggles in 50 villages in Sangrur. Participants came from around 50 villages from Sangrur and Mansa. Professor Jatinder Singh meticulously explained the participants that without revolutionary class struggle. Ambedkar's ideas would go into oblivion having no concrete solution to problems. He rebuked the manner in which Hindu rightists were trying to use and project Ambedkar for their sectarian gains to promote Hindu fascism. He also explained how ruling classes were manipulating Sikh ism to suppress or divert the genuine movements. What was significant was the considerable participation of youth and student community.

The KPMU demanded 1/3 rd distribution of panchayat land to all Dalit labourers, awarding of 10 Marlas of land to every Dalit family, Regular employment, Prevention of Nazoor land being illegally sold by ruling class elements implementation of the 1970 land ceiling act which prevented anyone from owning more than 10 acres of land, and all land wards for Dalits to be made permanent. Other resolutions passed were for scrapping all unjust laws and implementing laws protecting Scheduled castes, condemning the arrests of the intellectuals who were arrested on framed or false charges ,opposing rose in prices of Petrol and diesel and for girls to have freedom in hostels. By making them open for 24 hours.

The success of the meet is owed to the painstaking groundwork of KPMU in organizing land struggles resisting the tyranny of ruling class landlord and goonda elements..I was privileged to participate in the event. The cultural songs also were very touching literally reverberating the hearts of the audience. One of the best efforts by any organisation to educate the Dalit agricultural labour community in preparing the ground for an agrarian revolution and making them come to grips with the fascist nature of ruling class politics. Overall around 1500 people assembled but the emphasis was on mobilizing the more politically conscious or cream of the political activists.

US, Kansas- Another good year for the Wichita Pride Parade

From The Idiot Factor:
At least a thousand of people gathered for the annual Pride Parade, Sunday afternoon, here in Wichita. There were many colorful banners at this gay pride event where people stressed they should be what they want to be.
Tom Witt, executive director of Equality Kansas, asked the crowd who were outside the Old Sedgwick County Courthouse for speeches before the parade, if they remember Stonewall.
"They were riots." he said.
Stonewall was a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations between members of the gay community against a police raid which took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan New York. They are widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement.
He also brought up the passing of an adoption law this year that allows faith based outfits to be involved in adopting out children and they can discriminate against gay couples (SB 284, passed by a vote of 24-15).
"We really dropped the ball on that one," Witt said.
Other speakers that where present also brought up that law, including
Liz Hamor, of the Greater Wichita Chapter of GLSEN.
"I've known gay people who knew they were gay before they were cutting teach," she said.
In 2013, Liz started the Greater Wichita Chapter of GLSEN, a national organization that works to ensure all students feel safe, valued, and respected in K-12 schools regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.
"Things were much different five years ago," said Democrat Kansas Representative John Carmichael.
"Gays couldn't inherit property, they couldn't get health insurance for their mates, they couldn't visit partners in the hospital," he added. “Things are not as good as they should be but things are better."
Carmichael also talked about the potential loss of women's rights if Brett Kavanaugh gets to be on the Supreme Court.
"It's wrong and we're going to change it," he said of the adoption law.
It was interesting to see that corporations are now putting their stamp of approval on gay rights, but putting floats in the parade. T-Mobile and Airbus had floats (see the last two pictures). Does it help the cause that corporations are trying to capitalize on the success of gay liberation? It is hard to tell if such a connection is helping the cause or if the corporations are just helping themselves.
Here is a float from Moms Demanding Action from gun violence.
As we can see in the background some local politicians used the event to support their election campaigns.

-And below we see corporate logos.

SALUTE BCM 4th CONFERENCE SHIMMERING TORCH OF ANTI FASCIST RESISTANCE FOR STUDENT COMMUNITY!

By Harsh Thakor
SALUTE BCM 4th CONFERENCE SHIMMERING TORCH OF ANTI FASCIST RESISTANCE FOR STUDENT COMMUNITY! CONDEMN THE FASCIST ACT OF POLICE IN DENYING PERMISSION FOR STAGING PROGRAMME IN HALL ON GIVEN DAY.
Salute the valiant courage of comrades of Bhagat Singh Chatra Morcha who have proved they have the potential to turn a spark into a prairie fire. The authorities denied permission for the Radhakrishnan hall to be used in spite of formal permission given earlier. Heroically the BCM held the event outside the hall in the vicinity of the balcony. Even if quantitatively weak qualitatively the event was a great success. The Bhagat Singh Chatra Morcha have resurrected the inextinguishable flame of chairman Mao and Naxalbari to resist the Menace of Hindu fascism staging many significant struggles on campuses in Benares Hindu university.
They have also conducted go to villages campaigns propagating agrarian revolution. In villages of Uttar Pradesh. The rally held at the end was the 1st time for ages an open rally was led by a leftist organisation. in BHU campus to Lanka gate for years which symbolised the struggle of student community against fascism. Thus 4th conference of BCM was morally a great success. May it's spirit shimmer in campuses all over the country on the 50 the anniversary of the Student uprising in Paris.

Some of us are not fooled by Kavanaugh's snow job

There is one thing we can say about Brett Kavanaugh, the far-to-the-right, former-mean-drunk, would-be-rapist, hoping-to-be-our-next-Supreme Court judge, is that he is smart. He is slippery, smarmy, treacherous, cunning and yes—cleaver.
After Christine Blasey Ford  gave a convincing testimony at Kavanaugh's hearing Thursday afternoon, most observers seem to believe that Kavanaugh was finished. And yet Kavanaugh thundered his indignation to the point where he convinced almost all of the Republicans and others that HE was the victim. Some Republicans had insisted that the Democrats should apologies to Kavanaugh, the Republicans, the president and the American people for putting the nominee and his family through such a "sham" hearing (as in the words of Senator Lindsey Graham).
Republicans such as Graham, helped Kavanaugh stage his comeback. If there were academy awards for political drama, both Kavanaugh and Graham would be up for a nomination.
All of the drama would have been a slam dunk for Kavanaugh getting his nomination fulfilled and his dream of being on the court, ready to strike down Roe v. Wade, if it weren't for the sexual assault survivors who confronted Senator Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona. They made it clear to him that many women across the country are not going to just lay down and let a sexual predator take a seat on the Supreme Court.
“On Monday, I stood in front of your office,” one of the women, Ana Maria Archila, forcefully told Flake,. “I told the story of my sexual assault.”
Two women blocking an elevator door, angrily demanding to be heard as the senator stood by, listening quietly, nodding and looking away. Maria Gallagher was the other woman.
Those women were just as convincing as Kavanaugh. Those two got to Flake and he called for a one week investigation by the FBI before the final vote is taken.
There are a lot of us all across the country who do not want Kavanaugh to sit on the Supreme Court. Many of us, across the country, don't want his right-wing agenda crammed down all of our collective throats. There is plenty of good reasons to oppose Kavanaugh on grounds that Ford's testimony is credible enough that we risk putting a would be rapist on the Supreme Court.
We can be thankful that there are women who have been victims of sexual assault who are not as easily fooled as a lot of other Republicans and Republican leaning voters.
We still haven't stopped Kavanaugh from getting his job. But we still have a chance. Kavanaugh is a sexist con man and a lot of us are going to do what ever we can to stop him.

Ecuador- In defense of the life of Chairman Gonzalo, hoist higher the flag of Maoism!

"Finally now, listen to this. As we see in the world, Maoism is marching unstoppably to lead the new wave of world proletarian revolution. Listen well and understand! Those who have ears, use them. Those who have understanding - and we all have it - use it! Enough of this nonsense. Enough of these obscurities! Let us understand that! What is unfolding in the world? What do we need? We need Maoism to be embodied, and it is being embodied, and by generating Communist Parties it shall drive and lead this new great wave of the world proletarian revolution that is coming."Speech of Chairman Gonzalo, Sep. 1992
Proletarians of all countries, unite!


We, the signing Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties and Organizations, reaffirm ourselves, in this solemn celebration of the 26th year of the historical and transcendental speech of Chairman Gonzalo, in its full validity and especially in defending the life of this Titan of Thought and Action, the Great Leader of the Communist Party of Peru and the Peruvian Revolution; who has defined Maoism as the new, third and superior stage of Marxism and who established, that to be a Marxist today is to be a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, principally Maoist. We understand that the defense of Chairman Gonzalo implies to struggle in the most consequent way to impose Maoism as the sole command and guide of the New Great Wave of the Proletarian World Revolution, which is already developing. We understand that this struggle is part of the task to reunite the communists of the world, which implies to put the principles of Marxism, the class interests of the international proletariat, the struggle for liberation of the oppressed peoples and nations, and in the end, the struggle for Communism, in the first place.
The campaign for the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the great Karl Marx – that was preceded by the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and the 100th Anniversary of the October Revolution - has marked a leap in the struggle to unite the communists in the world. It is a campaign, principally propelled by the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties and Organizations of Latin America, which is demonstrating a higher ideological, political and organizational unity of a significant part of the International Communist Movement (ICM) and in its development, new forces are joining. Since the campaign for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Chairman Mao Tsetung (泽东), there was no similar campaign in the ICM. For no one to be confused: the campaigns to support the People’s Wars have obviously not been of the same character, as this is a campaign of Parties and Organizations with an explicit communist character – this fact calls for serious reflection, because it is an expression of how the struggle for unity is developed on practice, putting Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, the struggle against revisionism and serving the world revolution as a starting point, in summary, how the slogan Unite under Maoism! Manifests.
It is also important to highlight, for everyone who is willing to see, that an important impulse in the ICM was given in the last years. In many countries where the communist forces were on a very underdeveloped stage, Parties and Organizations that uphold Marxism-Leninism-Maoism reemerged and who struggle to reconstitute their Communist Parties that were destroyed by revisionism. The majority of these forces took clear position for the definition of Maoism made by Chairman Gonzalo. This makes some people, aloof from any Marxist criteria, label them as “Gonzaloists” and impute the left to be “sectarian and dogmatic”. Apart from the obvious – that opportunism and revisionism have always branded Marxists this way – it reveals that they have not understood that we are in the period of struggle to impose Maoism as the sole command and guide of the Proletarian World Revolution and that when assuming Maoism as the third stage of development of the ideology of the international proletariat, many parties and organizations, in essence, have only seen it as changing one formulation, that to speak of Maoism was a “more modern” form to speak about Mao Tsetung Thought.
So the problem in the ICM is not principally rooted in that Maoism is not formally acknowledged, but how some understand it, and this is why it is important to start with who defined Maoism as the new, third and superior stage of our ideology; because it is only by starting from what was scientifically established by Chairman Gonzalo that we can understand Maoism as one unit, as one harmonic system. If one does not take the work of Chairman Gonzalo as a starting point, one falls into eclecticism, counterposing quotes but not understanding the ideas. If we understand this, we can understand the reason why there are not few Parties and Organizations that, while taking longer time, have become stuck and have not made leaps in their processes, while those who put the most effort into learning from Chairman Gonzalo are, in general, advancing principally in qualitative terms, but also in quantitative terms. We advice those who rush to give labels to open their eyes to the material truth instead of getting carried away by their imaginations.
If we see the real state of the struggle for the reunification of the communists in the world we can see that in many aspects we are much better off than we were during the best moments of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM), because although the RIM was correctly characterized by Chairman Gonzalo as a “step forward”, he also pointed out - with his proper precision – that “as long as it follows a just and correct ideological-political line” the RIM will be a step forward, and it was, and it served to unite the communists on the basis of the red line and this could be no other than the line of Chairman Gonzalo. That is to say, the principal in the evaluation of the RIM is to state that it served the Proletarian World Revolution – and particularly the struggle to reunite the communists, while it served the struggle to impose Maoism as its sole command and guide - that is to say, the struggle which was led by Chairman Gonzalo - and that it ceased to play a positive role when the revisionists of the “RCP” from United States - taking advantage of the problematic situation of the left due to the bend in the People’s War in Peru – turned to totally hegemonize it. We must never forget that the unity is to serve the revolution and it only serves it, if the interest of the proletariat is imposed. The unity of the communists today in the world can only be achieved on the basis of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, or else it is not a unity of communists but a kind of “front” with revisionism and opportunism.    
RIM was liquidated by revisionism’s handling of the two-line struggle. The maneuver of Avakian was, to state - as a starting point of his “criticism” of the second Right Opportunist Line, revisionist and capitulationist, in Peru – that supposedly “the author would not matter, only the line”, which precisely led to centering the debate on who “the author” was. Or did this miserable not know that the communists of the world would rise when their Great Leadership was questioned? This is how the two-line struggle was derailed. The Problem for the left in the ICM was the hard and complex situation in which the PCP entered after the arrest of Chairman Gonzalo.
Despite everything, the PCP continued fulfilling its role as the Red Fraction in the ICM and the People’s War continued to be beacon and guide of PWR. Because the life of the party can never be detained and the People’s War was not stopped for even a moment. However, situations like the lack of the Great Leader caused problems in the left. The right could then state their positions (the attacks on the dictatorship of the proletariat, the “justification of peace negotiations as tactics”, the negation of semifeudality and evolution of bureaucratic capitalism, the negation of the three characteristics of imperialism, etc.) and all this remained in second place because the attention was centered on “debating” the maneuvers of the psychological warfare of imperialism and the sinister actions of traitors. Around the turning of the century, the struggle was sharpened. Then the left went into trouble and a great part fell into Avakian’s trap, the initiative fell into the hands of the right and they could lead the two-line struggle into exploding and thus revisionism liquidated the RIM.
No one can blame the Marxists for revisionism’s crimes, but this self-critical evaluation of the left is indeed necessary, its leadership lacked the necessary maturity and foresight to prevent the intrigues of revisionism, a problem that was extremely worsened by infiltration and usurpation of whole apparatuses by secret services and police of the reaction.
Prachanda has even formally renegated Marxism-Leninism-Maoism while uniting with the revisionists of UML, proving once again that he never was a Maoist, that he was never the “great leader” that those who wanted to negate what was put forward by Chairman Gonzalo and the PCP claimed so much, unmasking himself before the world as the most miserable upstart, trafficker and intriguer that has been seen in the last few decades in the ICM. This miserable can not be qualified as a traitor anymore because he has shown that in his whole life he was never a communist, but the only thing he was interested in was his personal power and this is why they have no choice but to call executioners of Nepalese revolution, such as the rats of UML, “comrades”.
Years have already passed since the gallant Avakian catapulted himself out of the ranks of the ICM.  His “new synthesis” is a rupture with Marxism, is an absolute demarcation with the ideology of the international proletariat, is an open and shameless negation of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. Avakian, just like Alexander, proclaimed himself god, the difference is that the latter did so to maintain his empire and to control his new forces, while the former did it to maintain his small degenerated court and to be able to continue vegetating in the mud.
Although the revisionist positions of both - principally the one of Avakian, for being the head of the right - are still repercussing and the struggle against them can not be declared finished, due to the fact that both fled from the internal struggle in the ICM they can not be taken as the center of the two-line struggle. To state that the center of the struggle is to criticize those two miserables is to put forward the conciliation with revisionism and is to leave the empty field to the right.
The principal problem is not with those who have gone away, the renegades, but the ones that are part of the ICM. Yes, their poisonous line must be dismantled and crushed, but that must be done particularly to further unite on the base of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, with the contributions of universal validity of Chairman Gonzalo and this implies to debate the central points and particularly to achieve a generalized understanding of Maoism as a unit.
There are those that until now insist on spreading the counterrevolutionary hoax (that Chairman Gonzalo is the head of the opportunist, revisionist and capitulationist right opportunist line,).They argue with what was stated by traitors (“he told me” or “he embraced me” and other gossip), with what is controlled by imperialism and the psychological warfare of the reaction (“courts” and “filtered” videos). Anything that comes from whoever wants to throw mud at Chairman Gonzalo supposedly has to be taken very seriously, has to be “analyzed” and has to break our heads to enter into a discussion “whether or not it is him”. They are wrong, because they do not understand that “the debate” has already been closed, the communists have already taken a position and the matter is settled: It was demonstrated that Chairman Gonzalo has not denied the Party Unity Base of the PCP for a moment. He is the Great Leader of the Party and the revolution, the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist on the face of earth, keeping on struggling to transform the concentration camp of Callao Navy Base into the most Shining Trench of Combat of the People’s War.  What corresponds is to defend his life with People’s War. 26 years have already passed in which Chairman Gonzalo could not directly communicate with the Party or the ICM; 26 years of absolute isolation, this is what it concretely is. That imperialism, the reaction and revisionism will continue to plot intrigues is clear, the contrary would be that they have changed their nature (a thesis of the disciples of the sacred Avakian, which is impossible), but we must not allow that these intrigues stop the advance of the communists.
To be clear: We communists reaffirm ourselves in the principle of criticism and self-criticism and the seriousness of a Party that, as Lenin taught us, is measured by its capability to assume self-criticism. This is why we do not close the door to anyone, except to those who stained their hands with the blood of the masses. Hence, if those who committed grave mistakes and errors really want to correct themselves they are very welcome; for this they have to demonstrate their condition as communists and close ranks with the left, understand that to be a Great Leader you have to move more than your “close and dear ones”, that a proletarian Great Leader is not a ridiculous big shot but someone who knows how to lead the transformation of the world.
On this occasion of celebrating a new anniversary of the Speech of Chairman Gonzalo, we particularly want to greet the comrades from the Communist Party of Peru who are advancing through firm steps in the general reorganization of the Party, that is already approaching the days of its culmination; a process that is made in the midst of the People’s War, proven one again with the recent forceful actions of the People’s Liberation Army that maintains the People’s Committees and Base Areas. We communists of the world acknowledge the extraordinary role of the PCP and no one can doubt that the culmination of the reorganization of this Party will mean a significant impulse for the Proletarian World Revolution and will be a decisive piece in the struggle for the reunification of the ICM.
We must understand that what Chairman Gonzalo said on September 24, 1992, is being fulfilled: Maoism is being embodied by the peoples of the world, is generating Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Parties, is starting to lead the New Great Wave of the Proletarian World Revolution. What is up to us is to struggle for it to be further embodied, that the ongoing People’s Wars advance, that the People’s War is as soon as possible initiated in each country where there are Communist Parties, that the struggle for the reconstitution of the Parties in those countries were none of them exist gets propelled further, so that they become Parties to initiate the People’s War. Understanding Maoism as a unit, we will march with ever more clarity and firmness towards the reunification of the communists on world level, smashing imperialism, the reaction and revisionism, learning from Chairman Gonzalo.
Long live Chairman Gonzalo!
Unite under Maoism!
People’s War will inevitably win!
