Panama—Maoists grieve the loss of Comrade Enrique Castillero

Probably a lot of my US comrades are unaware that there is a Maoist party in Panama, the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) of Panama. Not only does this party exist but it is quite active—at least on the internet. The party has some websites and a very active blog called; Luminoso futuro (Bright Future).  The blog and web site are also a part of the Red de Blogs Comunistas’ blog collective. Otto’s War Room is also a part of that collective.
These Maoists have just recently lost an important member of their organization; Secretary General of the Central Committee Comrade ENRIQUE ANTONIO CASTILLERO GONZALEZ. So I am posting this to honor their fallen comrade. This letter was translated by Google.

Dear comrades;

 The Political Committee and the Central Committee of our party, the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) of Panama, with pain and sorrow, informs you that this 19 February
2015 our dear Secretary General of the Central Committee Comrade ENRIQUE ANTONIO CASTILLERO GONZALEZ has passed away. This has left Comrade Enrique Castillero, at 78 years of age, a victim of a painful cancerous disease.

He has ridden a long terminal phase of four years. Disease and prostration which have not diminished in any moment his theoretical and practical work policy and organizational capacity, nor his efforts and commitment in building our party, the (Marxist-Leninist) Communist Party of Panama, as a revolutionary political tool needed to conquer the national and popular sovereignty, national independence, the new popular democracy and the complete victory of the revolution socialist proletarian and the bright communist future of our country.

His teachings and rich revolutionary political experience accumulated over 63 years of unwavering activity proletarian revolutionary-from an early age, typographic worker, has been linked to the labor movement and working masses and popular- have been a rich source of inspiration and guidance for all of us, his comrades and brothers of class.

Comrade Enrique Castillero, firm Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, has always been at the forefront in the fight of authentic  Panama Communists in combat rightist opportunism and reformism, against revisionism and Browderist and kruschevista in reporting that tengxiaopinista that increasingly infeccionaba the heroic Communist Party of China and all the young International Communist Movement (Marxist-Leninist).

The dear comrade Enrique Castillero, in the course of his long communist militant, Marxist-Leninist, was a wise leader and Conductor of the Maoist Communist Panama in its Long March that has given life to the Communist Party (ML) of Panama, his most beloved son. He was found at the head of fifteen pioneers who have begun the construction of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Movement Panama. Organizer, first, of the Revolutionary Communist Party Panama; then its dissolution in shaping the Frente Obrero Socialista (ml) and culminating in laying the theoretical foundations and
policies of the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) of Panama. A great political and moral debt has contracted the working class, people and the Panamanian nation with this proletarian revolutionary, communism, its flagship son. He in pomp magna, with proletarian humility and firmness, has entered the history of the communist and Maoist movement in our country.

Today, our dear comrade Castillero Enrique Gonzalez has left. He leaves a void difficult to fill. You now wanted a Comrade, rests us your comrades, successors and class brothers, is our commitment to you, we will not drop the big red flag for your ideals and take a beating. Panama will be communist or sink into the sea!

The Political Committee and the Central Committee of the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist) of Panama extend their deepest condolences to his companion wife, family and other mourners, urging them to turn pain into strength. Surely that's ideal for who lived and died Comrade Enrique Castillero are embodied in you and us his comrades and brothers of class.
