This year’s May Day reports—news and statements

By សតិវ​អតុ 
This May Day, in Wichita, no one did anything. But throughout the country and the world, people did plenty. Here in the US leftist held some events. A web site called Incendiary reported:

“Communists, revolutionaries, and the masses marched through the streets of Boyle Heights and into one of the crumbling centers of gentrification – the so-called “Boyle Heights Arts District” for this year’s combative May Day. Although several attendees got away at the end of the march, 24 people were kettled and arrested on rioting charges.”

That was a report from a march in LOS ANGELES: “Mass Arrests as Communists Lead May Day March through Boyle Heights.”
There was also an Austin May Day March. Both of these marches were held by Maoist groups trying to make a presents here in the US.
There were also many May Day statements issued by various groups of parties and organizations. We offer those statements below.

From Maoist_Road:
Maoist Communist Party Manipur published a new statement appreciating the initiative of both May Day Joint statements. It was largely circulated in local news papers of Manipur. MCPM published this statement in Manipuri language and translated by media peoples so some terminology may use not in proper manner and some sentences omitted. But we hope you will understand the essence of the statement. Here I am adding some statement which they omitted in their news paper. 
Recalling the significance of the May, Maoist Communist Party Manipur, an armed rebel group operating in the region today said that fifteen Maoist parties from all over the world have released a joint statement, giving the message of revolution to the people on occasion of the May Day.

“May Day of 2019 marks an important day for the Maoist parties and organizations”, the statement of the Manipur Maoist said.  These two joint statements mark an important step in the World Proletarian Revolution. Maoist Communist Party, Manipur (Manipur Maoist) along with other fourteen parties released a joint statement called “Red Proletarian International”. The other fourteen organisations  are: 1) Committee for Building the Maoist Communist Party, Galicia,  Spanish State, 2) Communist (Maoist) Party of Afghanistan, 3) Communist Party of Nepal (Revolutionary Maoist), 4) Communist Party of Turkey/Marxist-Leninist, 5) Democracy and Class Struggle, British State, 6) Elkadehin Party, Tunisie, 7) Maoist Communist Party of France, 8) Maoist Communist Party of Italy, 9) Maoist Revolutionary League- Sri Lanka, 10) New Communist Party, Tunisia, 11) Red Youth of Germany, 12) Revolutionary Communist Party – Canada, 13) Union Obrera Comunista, Colombia and 14) Workers’ Voice, Malaysia. On the other hand, twelve Maoist parties including the Latin American Maoist parties have released a joint statement called “Dare to Struggle, Dare to Win.” The parties are: 1) Communist Party of Ecuador (Red Sun), Ecuador, 2) Peru Peoples Movement (Reorganization Committee), 3) Communist Party of Brazil (Red Faction), 4) Red Faction of the Communist Party of Chile, 5) Reconstitution of Communist Party of Columbia, 6) Revolutionary Nucleus for the Reconstitution of the Communist Party of Mexico, 7) Communist party of Turkey/ Marxist-Leninist, 8) Maoist Communist Party of French State, 9) Red Flag Collective, 10) Committee for the Foundation of (Maoist) Communist Party of Austria, 11) Tjen Folket- Communist League Norway and 12) Committee to reconstitute the Communist Party of USA. The Manipur Maoist said that the two statements released on 2019’s May Day clearly indicate that a united Maoist movement at the international level can be built up. Maoist Communist Party of Manipur firmly believes in it. After the death of the revolutionary leader, Comrade Charu Mazumdar, Communist Party of India (Maoist), taking his ideology forward, has made considerable advances in the People’s War. Similarly, following the footsteps of Siraj Sikdar, comrades in Bangladesh are preparing for a Maoist revolution in Bangladesh. In Turkey, comrades are advancing the Maoist revolution bringing forth the legacy of comrade Ibrahim Kaypakkaya. Similarly, armed with Gonzalo’s legacy Maoist parties in Latin America are preparing for a Maoist revolution. This marks a considerable advancement in the World Proletarian Revolution. Maoist Communist Party, Manipur is not only continuing the legacy of Lamyanba Hijam Irabot, but also developing it according to the changing conditions and preparing for a new revolution in Manipur.

“We have a lot to learn from these leaders and we must also develop what they have taught us and advance the Maoist revolution in our own respective countries. It is the responsibility of all the Maoist parties in the world. Today, Maoist parties in Latin America, Europe and Asia have been able to successfully develop the Maoist revolutions in these places” it added.

It further stated that beginning from 2019, all the Maoist parties of the world have to make an environment to endorse a  General Program for the International Communist Movement by advancing the bi-lateral discussions.  Maoist Communist Party of Manipur assures the people of Manipur that it will take responsibility in building such environment. Through these bilateral discussions only, we can build up unity of the Maoists.  Maoist Communist Party, Manipur firmly believes that the bi-lateral discussions will bring the Maoist parties closer to each other and provide an opportunity to understand and trust each other more. Maoist Communist Party, Manipur will build strong relationships with Maoist parties of other countries through these bi-lateral discussions, the statement added.

Maoist Communist Party Manipur also appeal the people of Manipur to support the Peoples war waging in India and Philippines which are most advance peoples war led by Maoist Parties in the world.
