Central Committee
Communist Party of Peru 
September 2014

Reproduced by the
October 2014
The Communist Movement has made way in struggle against the positions of the bourgeoisie in the bosom of the proletarian movement. Marx and Engels fought Bakunin, Dühring and others. Lenin fought and crushed the revisionism of Kautsky, Bernstein, Plechanov that emerged from the 2nd International. Comrade Stalin fought the revisionism of Trotsky and his henchmen. Chairman Mao fought against the restoration of capitalism in the USSR, against Chruschev’s revisionism, against the revisionist thesis of “peaceful coexistence”, the revisionism of Teng, Liu, Lin Piao, Tito, Thorez, Togliatti. It was Chairman Mao who led two great milestones of the world proletarian revolution: the Chinese revolution in 1949 and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (1966-1976).
In this process it was Chairman Gonzalo as Great Leader of the Party and the Revolution, and of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Peru, who in hard struggle carried out the reconstitution of the Party in 1970, defining Maoism as the new, third and higher stage of Marxism; that had repercussions in the RIM, which assumed Maoism in spite of the opposition from the expert sophist Avakian from the RCP. Facing the arrest of Chairman Gonzalo and the inflexion in the Party, a ROL was structured, led and nursed by CIA agents, who organized in the prisons, preparing them to lay the foundations for the “4th stage of the Party”, renouncing the people’s war, and calling for handing over the weapons and the People’s Committees like Prachanda did later, proclaiming that there are no conditions, that we are in the strategic defensive, among other nonsense belonging to their parliamentary cretinism.
Today the PCP, maintaining the course of the revolution in spite of not having the Great Leadership close, and confronting the inflexion, continues in its development and advance, being forged in its all-out struggle against revisionism, combating all capitulation here in Peru and on the international level combating the new revisionism of Avakian and Prachanda, and the capitulationism of Öcalan and others.
So the black heads are outlined, they are the new standard bearers that attempt to revise Maoism, raising the black banners of capitulation; they have become the promoters of yankee imperialism, for it to continue as world gendarme. It is up to the revolutionary organizations to implacably bombard the headquarters of revisionism; we communists march forward over this pus.
The Communist Parties of the world must assume their condition in this period; this must be concretized in initiating and developing the world people’s war. The people’s war in Peru, India, Philippines, Nepal and Turkey has developed in an uneven way. This whole ardent struggle of communists, of the peoples’ heroism, as well as the spilled blood of its best sons and daughters, shows clearly to the world that the proletariat struggles ceaselessly for its emancipation; we communists have the obligation to firmly hold on to and start from our principles to command The New Great Wave of the World Proletarian Revolution! led by MAOISM, crushing the banners of capitulation and peace accords.
In the PCP we start from what Chairman Mao established concerning the need to build the three instruments of the revolution: Party, Army and United Front interrelatedly. It was Chairman Mao who solved the construction of the three instruments in a backward, semifeudal and semicolonial country, through the people’s war. Concretely, the construction of the Party around the gun, and that it is the heroic combatant that leads its own construction, that of the Army and of the Front.
We firmly apply the militarization of the Communist Parties and the concentric construction of the three instruments. The militarization of the Communist Parties is a political guideline that has strategic content, being the “whole of the transformations, changes and adjustments that are necessary to lead the people’s war as the main form of struggle that creates the new state”; therefore the militarization of the Communist Parties is the key to the democratic, the socialist and the cultural revolutions.
On the ideological-political base, the Party simultaneously builds the organizational, in the midst of the class struggle and the two line struggle, all within and serving the armed struggle for the conquest of power, and we link the whole process of construction to the fluidity of the people’s war, starting from the fact that “fluidity in the war and in our territory produces fluidity in all fields of construction in our base areas” as Chairman Mao says.
We consider that it must be built in this way because we are in the strategic offensive of the world proletarian revolution; we are experiencing the sweeping away of imperialism and reaction from the face of the Earth in the next 50 to 100 years, an epoch characterized by violence, in which all kinds of wars are expressed. We see how the imperialists and all the reactionaries are militarizing more and more, militarizing the old states, their economy, developing wars of aggression, trafficking with the struggles of the peoples and aiming for a new world war, but since revolution is the principal tendency in the world, the task of the Communist Parties is to uphold the revolution and realize the main form of struggle: the people’s war, to oppose the counterrevolutionary world war with revolutionary world war.
We must ward off the capitalist restoration. When the bourgeoisie loses power it introduces itself inside the Party, uses the army and tries to usurp the power, destroy the dictatorship of the proletariat to restore capitalism. Therefore, the Communist Parties must militarize themselves and exercise the all-embracing dictatorship of the three instruments, forge themselves in the people’s war and strengthen the armed organization of the masses, the people’s militia, so that it may swallow the army. Therefore, every militant is forged in the people’s war and against every attempt at restoration.
We would like to reiterate that we are marching towards a militarized society. Militarizing the Party we realize a step towards the militarization of society, which is the strategic perspective for guaranteeing the dictatorship of the proletariat. The militarized society is the armed sea of masses that Marx and Engels talked about, which protects the conquest and the defense of the conquered power. We take the experience of the Chinese revolution, of the anti-japanese base in Yenan, which was a militarized society where everything came from the mouths of the guns, Party, army, state, new politics, new economy, new culture. And thus develop war communism.
In conclusion, the Communist Party is the vanguard of the proletariat for initiating or leading the people’s war, taking the Party as the axis of everything to build around it the army, and with these instruments, with the masses in people’s war, build around both of them the new state. That the militarization of the Party can only be carried forward through concrete actions of class struggle, concrete military actions. This does not mean that we only realize, exclusively, military actions of different types (guerrilla actions, sabotage, selective annihilations, armed propaganda and agitation), but that we must principally develop these forms of struggle to encourage and develop the class struggle instructing it with doctrine through actions, in these types of actions as forms of the principal struggle of the people’s war.
The Party, as has been established since Marx, Lenin and Chairman Mao, has the objective of conquering the power and defending it, and is inseparably linked to the people’s war, be it to initiate it, develop it or waging it to defend itself; a Party sustained by the masses, be it by the people’s war itself as a war of the masses or by the United Front which, being a front of classes, is based on the majority of the masses. A Communist Party is not for going to elections and governing to exploit the people with old reactionary state sustained by the reactionary armed forces like Prachanda and Öcalan peddle; the new state comes from and is sustained by the guns, the joint democracy does not come from parliament. The PCP is forged in the struggle against revisionism since its foundation.
