Nepalese Reactionary government banned the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov)

Nepalese Reactionary government banned the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov)

MAOIST_REVOLUTION@yahoogroups.com

Dear comrades,

we would like to draw your kind attention towards the recent ban imposed by the current Government of Nepal ( March 12, 2019)
against the Communist Party of Nepal (Led by comrade “Netra Bikram Chand – Biplov”).

This move of current pseudo communist Nepal government dangerously synchronizes with the historical social fascist acts against the fundamental human/political rights and righteous people’s movement. Hundreds of party sympathizer and supporters, party members and leaders are being systematically arrested and tortured across the country. Fabricated fake legal cases are being manufactured by the state agencies against the detained individuals. Further, cadres from sister organizations (such as Students wing, Teachers wing, Workers wing) politically supporting the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov) are also equally terrorized by the state agencies. This political ban and ongoing systematically organized state sponsored horror simply violets all fundamental sociopolitical rights of any human being.

In this regard, we will highly appreciate if your party can spare few minutes to critically evaluate the recent political situation of Nepal.

We sincerely expect to receive your support and solidarity in the struggle towards the scientific socialism led by the Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov) against the fascist ban imposed by the government of Nepal.

Communist Party of Nepal (Biplov) is the sole heritor of the historical Nepalese people’s war (started in 1996-) that was regrettably dissolved by former comrades Prachnada and Dr. Baburam Bhattarai surrendering in favor of old parliamentary systems. This party identifies the “Indian monopoly capitalism” and Indian expansionism closely collaborating with the Anglo-European American imperialism as the root cause of sociopolitical suffering in the south asia. Further, it puts forward the concept of “unified people’s revolution” in an active participation of people supported by the revolutionary party as a path towards the scientific socialism.

Additionally, Nepalese people’s progressive front (NPPF), Europe is a Nepalese diaspora which acts as a common forum of progressive Nepalese living in Europe. Apart from its social activities, NPPF stands for fundamental human rights, freedom of speech and rightful people’s struggle in Nepal and around the world.

Sincerely

Nepalese people’s progressive front (NPPF), Europe

Central Committee

Maoist rebels attack Indian government forces, wounding 11

Maoist rebels attack Indian government forces, wounding 11

Police say Maoist rebels have triggered a blast in eastern India, wounding eight paramilitary soldiers and three police officers carrying out a search operation in a forested area.
Police officer D.K. Pandey says the wounded soldiers have been hospitalized in Ranchi, the state capital, after Tuesday’s attack. The soldiers belonged to a special jungle warfare unit.
The explosive is suspected to have been buried in a dirt track.
Early this month, Maoist rebels attacked a van carrying police commandos in western Maharashtra state and killed 15 officers and their driver.
The Maoist rebels, who claim inspiration from Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Zedong, have been fighting India’s government for more than four decades, demanding land and jobs for tenant farmers and the poor. They are active in several parts of India.

Naxal attack in Gadchiroli leaves 15 security personnel dead

Naxal attack in Gadchiroli leaves 15 security personnel dead

[https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/defence/possible-naxal-attack-in-gadchiroli-leaves-several-security-personnel-injured/articleshow/69127641.cms]

MUMBAI: Barely 10 ten hours after 27 vehicles were allegedly torched by Maoists near Dadapur village in north Gadchiroli, a reinforcement party of the Quick Response Team (QRT) of the Kurkheda police travelling to Purada (the police station under whose jurisdiction the arson incident was reported) was attacked in a landmine blast.

All the 15 men and the driver of the private vehicle engaged by the police were killed in the blast, carried out by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

While the police said the standard operating procedure (SOP) in sensitive zones keep changing and is tweaked as per requirement, the reason as to why the QRT party didn’t take a road opening party (ROP) will be inquired into. Some lapses like not using an armoured vehicle and not pressing two private vehicles while ferrying personnel were also noticed.

The IED blast occurred around 12.30 pm on Wednesday near Lendhri area, a few kilometre from Kurkheda in north Gadchiroli.

Earlier, around 2 am on Wednesday, 27 vehicles including cement mixers, dumpers and trucks belonging to Amar Infrastructures Ltd, used for the construction of the Purada-Yerkad sector of National Highway-136, were torched near Dadapur in Purada village. Police said the QRT was sent to Purada as reinforcement. Many of the QRT men were tribal youth from the adjoining areas.

“This was a case of a classic trap deployed by Maoists. First, use arson to force the police to send reinforcement and then attack the reinforcement party by placing landmine blasts. Ideally, in such cases, an ROP is a must. It is a golden rule. However, in this case, it wasn’t pressed. This shows that it was a case of poor planning,” said a former senior IPS officer.

“Also, the SOP clearly states that reinforcement should not be sent as a knee-jerk reaction and that the details of the route taken by the police party is only with the unit commander. The fact that the blast took place on a busy tar road on which many vehicles would have had to ply before the incident reveals that the attackers had specific information of the time and the vehicle details in which the QRT party was travelling,” he said.

“The accused would have sat in ambush and triggered the IED when the vehicle reached the designated spot. In an ordinary Maoist attack, a landmine blast is followed by an exchange of fire. But, in this case, since there was specific input, the latter wasn’t required… This only indicates that somebody from within had leaked the information on the movement of the men,” the official said.

Speaking to the press, DGP Subodh Jaiswal said the Maharashtra police will give a fitting response to the attack and, if need be, even carry out cross-border strikes.

The incident comes at a time when Maoists are observing a week-long protest to mark the first death anniversary of 40 of their comrades who were killed by security forces last year in two separate encounters in Gadchiroli district.

While the Kasanasur encounter was a joint operation of the C-60 commandos and battalion 9 of the CRPF, the Rajaram encounter was carried out by the C-60 commandos.

Julian Assange Outside the Gate of Hell

Julian Assange Outside the Gate of Hell

1554979786_616_wikileaks-founder-julian-assange-arrested-in-london-

I’ve been to see Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy several times, mainly when Rafael Correa was President and the Embassy felt like a liberated space. A few weeks ago I met him again. By now Correa’s successor, Lenín Moreno, had capitulated on every level to the American Empire. The Embassy became a prison and Assange’s health deteriorated. He was in no doubt that Moreno had been asked and had agreed to expel him from the Embassy. The US demand for extradition was no longer a secret. The Embassy handed him over to the British police earlier today.

If we lived in a world where laws were respected, then Assange would be charged with jumping bail (a minor offense), fined or kept in prison for a few weeks and then released to return to his native Australia. But both the UK and Australia are, effectively, imperial satrapies and likely to bow to US demands. The secret and not-so-secret state in both countries work closely with (or under) its US masters. Why do they want him so badly? To set an example. To incarcerate and isolate him as a warning to others not to follow the Wikileaks path. Chelsea Manning has been re-arrested because she refused to testify to a Grand Jury against him. Since the Russian and Chinese intelligence agencies are pretty much aware of what the US is up to in most parts of the world, the threat posed by Wikileaks was that it made its information available to any citizen, anywhere in the world, who possessed a computer. US/EU foreign policy and its post 9/11 wars have been based on lies, promoted by global TV and media networks and often accepted by a majority of North American and European citizens. Information contradicting these lies challenges the stated motives for war — human rights, democracy, freedom, etc.

Wikileaks has been exposing all this by publishing classified documents that shine a light on the real reasons. It is an astonishing record. Till now WikiLeaks has published almost 3 million diplomatic cables and other US State Department records, comprising some two billion plus words. This stupendous and seemingly insurmountable body of internal state literature, which if printed would amount to some 30,000 volumes, represents something new in the world. This is where the Internet becomes a subversive force, challenging the propaganda networks of the existing order. Assange and his colleagues made no secret that their principal target was the American Empire and its global operations. The response of US institutions has been hysterical and comical. The Library of Congress, blocked Internet access to WikiLeaks. The US National Archives even blocked searches of its own database for the phrase “WikiLeaks.” So absurd did the taboo become that, like a dog snapping mindlessly at everything, eventually it found its mark — its own tail. As Julian Assange pointed out: “By March 2012, the Pentagon had gone so far as to create an automatic filter to block any emails, including inbound emails to the Pentagon, containing the word ‘WikiLeaks.'” As a result, Pentagon prosecutors preparing the case against US intelligence analyst PFC Manning, the alleged source of the Cablegate cables, found that they were not receiving important emails from either the judge or the defense.

The British government is insisting that they will follow the law. We shall see. The US Department of Justice has stated that Assange could face five years in a US prison. Diane Abbot, a leading member of Jerremy Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet, said in parliament today:

“On this side of the house, we want to make the point that the reason we are debating Julian Assange this afternoon – even though the only charge he may face in this country is in relation to his bail hearings – is entirely to do with the whistleblowing activities of Julian Assange and Wikileaks. It is this whistleblowing activity into illegal wars, mass murder, murder of civilians and corruption on a grand scale that has put Julian Assange in the crosshairs of the US administration. It is for this reason that they have once more issued an extradition warrant against Julian Assange … Julian Assange is not being pursued to protect US national security, he is being pursued because he has exposed wrongdoing by US administrations and their military forces.”

We will learn more in the days and weeks ahead. In the meantime, Wikileaks and its founder expect and deserve the solidarity of all those of us who believe that citizens should not be treated like children and that most politicians in the US/EU orbit are untrustworthy and hate their lies and corruptions being exposed.

‘Dark moment for press freedom’: Edward Snowden responds to Assange arrest

‘Dark moment for press freedom’: Edward Snowden responds to Assange arrest

 

Fellow whistleblower Edward Snowden has responded to the arrest of Julian Assange in London, tweeting that the images of Ecuadorian authorities handing him over to UK police were a “dark moment for press freedom.”

In the tweet, Snowden said the images of a publisher of “award-winning journalism” being dragged out of the embassy would “end up in the history books.”

 

Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday morning, just days after WikiLeaks had said his removal from the building was imminent following a withdrawal of asylum from Quito.

The whistleblower, who has released hundreds of thousands of authentic documents and diplomatic cables, had been living in exile at the embassy for the last 6 years.

New General Secretary of CPI Maoist May Initiate Fresh PLGA Offensives

New General Secretary of CPI Maoist May Initiate Fresh PLGA Offensives

An important development that could lead to a perceptible change in the course of revolutionary movement in India went literally unnoticed as the ultra-secret CPI (Maoist) party managed to keep the leadership change under wraps for over 20 months.

Maoist party spokesman Abhay announced that Muppala Laxmana Rao aka Ganapathy had stepped down as the general secretary of CPI (Maoist) and that Namballa Kesava Rao known as Baswaraj was elected to head the revolutionary party on November 10. This confirmation came exactly five days after Telangana Today broke the news on November 5. Abhay had issued a two-page press release in different languages confirming that Baswaraj had replaced Ganapathy.

The CPI (Maoist), which continues to wage a protracted armed struggle to achieve New Democratic Revolution (NDR) in India, maintains utmost secrecy, apparently to hoodwink the tech-assisted spy agencies and the well-equipped security forces and save its leadership. The sudden revelation took the agencies by surprise as Abhay carefully cloaked this nugget of information in the praise showered on Ganapathy for his excellent leadership qualities that enabled the revolutionary party to survive the most difficult times as security forces waged a literal war against the underground cadre in well-coordinated military actions while reclaiming control over large swathes of hinterlands from the Maoist stranglehold.

Replacing Ganapathy

The press release maintained that “in the period of 25 years from 1992 to 2017, Ganapathy performed his responsibilities as the General Secretary…(sic)”  threw light on how the senior most naxalite leader was replaced.  The press note also mentions that the fifth meeting of the Central Committee discussed the proposal of Ganapathy to step down and after accepting the proposal had decided to elect Baswaraj to the post of general secretary.

It was in this line, the Maoist party discloses the leadership change happening in February 2017, as agencies have learnt through several Maoist documents that the fifth Central Committee meeting was held in February of 2017. Interestingly, various documents seized by security agencies across the country spoke of the status of the revolutionary movement in India but did not mention Ganapathy being replaced. There was, however, a detailed discussion recorded on using the services of ‘veteran comrades’. A 30-page document on the decisions taken at the February meeting recalled that an earlier CC meeting held in 2013 felt that the committee must take a stand on the ageing leadership.

Incidentally, the CC meeting was held only after a gap of four years and in 2017, it decided to “call upon the veterans” to voluntarily come forth relinquishing the responsibilities so that younger leaders could take over the reins of the party. The expertise of veterans, the CC decided, should be used in different ways and that the party must take care of those leaders too.

It was in this spirit, Ganapathy seems to have offered to step down from the post of general secretary and his colleagues opted to make Namballa Keshava Rao alias Baswaraj as the new general secretary. Keshava Rao hails from Jiyannapet village of Srikakulam district and was a student of Regional Engineering College (REC) in Warangal (now christened as NIT-Warangal). Known to be extremely tech-savvy and equally strong in his ideological commitment and military craft, Keshava Rao was heading the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the CPI (Maoist), while also continuing as member of the Central Committee and the politbureau.

Old And Ailing

Interestingly, what is left unsaid in the press release or in the CC documents is that many of the senior leaders in the 19-member-strong CC are suffering from different ailments. Ganapathy, aged about 68 years, is believed to be suffering from knee problems apart from being a diabetic patient. So is the case with Kishan Da (Prashanth Bose) who is suffering from diabetes and age-related issues. Another senior leader Katakam Sudershan (Anand) is stated to be suffering from dental and knee problems. Akkiraju Haragopal alias Ramakrishna or Saketh, Chandranna (Pulluri Prasada Rao),  Sonu alias Abhay and  Ravula Srinivas (Ramanna) were stated to be fit and not suffering from any ailments.

Impact of Leadership Change

So how does the leadership change impact the revolutionary movement in India? This is the question that has been engaging the attention of the analysts among the security forces. Knowing the propensity of the new Chief of Maoist and his capabilities military-wise, it is anticipated that the Maoist cadres would intensify military attacks in their strongholds. Currently, the naxalite movement in the country is in its worst phase with security forces gaining an upper hand and reclaiming areas in hinterlands from the Maoist control. The revolutionary party has also admitted that it had not succeeded in spreading the revolutionary fervour and activity to newer areas, more so in urban areas while its strongholds have been shrinking.

Different sections of society such as students, workers, adivasis and the underprivileged sections who extended complete support have been distancing themselves from the naxalite movement, which is now confined to pockets in Dandakaranya forests falling in southern Chhattisgarh, parts of Maharashtra, Odisha, Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and some other border areas of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala.

Accelerated Violence

Most of the Maoist ideologues have always firmly believed in the theory that it is necessary for the revolutionaries to launch an intensified Tactical Counter Offensive Campaign (TCOC) when the state repression is very high. Intensified TCOC in Maoist parlance would mean accelerated violence in different forms to blunt the initiative of the security forces through ambushes and attacks and targeted killings of political leaders to neutralise the political initiative to take on the Maoist movement.  Only such intensified TCOC would provide space for the revolutionary movement to grow is the general argument of the ideologues.

They take the example of Alipiri attack on Chandrababu Naidu, then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, in 2003. The claymore mine attack on Naidu — when repression was extremely severe — had changed the political course in Andhra Pradesh. Naidu had called for polls immediately after the attack hoping that he would ride on a sympathy wave but the Congress led by YS Rajasekhara Reddy romped home to power after promising to hold negotiations with the Maoist party. The lull in the anti-extremist operations because of the changed political scenario and the assertions that there should be talks with the Maoists was used effectively by the beleaguered revolutionary party to reorganise itself and perhaps reorient itself too.

In this interregnum, the top leadership of  CPI-ML (People’s War) mooted the idea of merging with  the Maoist Communist Centre of India (MCCI) and the biggest unification of revolutionary forces in India took place in 2004 when both the parties merged to form the current CPI (Maoist). The net result was that the Maoist rebels established their presence very effectively in different States and scaled up their activities so much that former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had to describe the Maoist activity as the biggest challenge to the internal security of India.

Strategies and Tactics

And now, Baswaraj, security analysts say, is a strong votary of this theory of launching an intensified TCOC to blunt the counter-insurgency initiatives. Going by his background and his proven record of leading the military commission and thereby leading the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA), the possibility of India witnessing more violence cannot be ruled out. The killing of Kidari Sarveswara Rao, a tribal legislator in Andhra Pradesh and a former legislator, recently in Araku and the sudden spike in ambushes against the security forces in Chhattisgarh could point to this direction. Another interesting angle to the leadership change issue is why didn’t the CPI (Maoist) announce it immediately. Another Maoist leader from the Telangana State Committee maintained recently that his party would announce the changes only to some level as it would not like to expose its leaders to dangers from the security forces.

It is not yet clear as to what strategies and tactics would Baswaraj employ to rejuvenate the rank and file of the rebel party. Would he lay more emphasis on military actions without taking a critical look at the same old strategies and tactics in the changing scenario at political, social and economic levels in India? We have to wait and watch.

Speech delivered by Atif Anik on Irabot Day 2018

Speech delivered by Atif Anik, President, National Committee, Revolutionary Student-Youth Movement/Bangladesh at THAU ground, Imphal on 30th September 2018
Comrades, co-worker and struggling people of Manipur,
Red salute and Revolutionary greetings on the behalf of Peoples Of Bangladesh. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak before you on the 122th birthday of Comrade Hijam Irabot.
I’ve come to Manipur on the invitation of the Students’ Union of Manipur to commemorate the birthday of Hijam Irabat. General Secretary of SSUM, comrade Bushan invited our Organisation, Revolutionary Student-Youth Movement through facebook.
Our National Committee accepted that invitation and sent me here. So, first, I want to thank the friends of the Socialist Students’ Union who have given us the opportunity to declare our Solidarity with the people of Manipur.
Today, it is the 122th birthday of comrade Hijam Irabat. Last 26 September was the 67th anniversary of his death. But still, today, Manipur has not been able to reach the envisioned destination of Hijam Irabat!
Friends in struggle,
Comrade Hijam Irabat dreamed of a classless Society. He dreamed of a sovereign Democratic Manipur. Until the end of his life he fought the fight. And because of that he didn’t have much time to fight against his physical conditions. After becoming infected with Typhoid, he left the world.
Actually, this is the meaning of revolutionary life. Shouldn’t we be like him? How much we followed him? We have to reflect on this again.

We, the Bangladeshi People feel proud because in the time of the anti-British movement, comrade Irabat was Bangladesh’s Sylhet jail for likely two years. From this time, major ideological changes happened in his life. Sitting in Sylhet jail, he was educated to be a communist.
Bangladeshi comrades have many things to learn from Comrade Hijaam Irabat. We want to learn from his Revolutionary life.
Comrades, Manipuri people have a long-enduring revolutionary history. Though in the whole of South Asia Manipur is a small area, its fertile stirring soil has taken hold as a struggling region to the world. From the start of the anti-British movement to now, Manipuri People have been fighting continuously for their rights.
Friends in struggle,
When we study history of Manipur, we notice that Manipur’s fighting women play a vital role in the revolutionary struggle of Manipur. In the struggle for social change the woman of Manipur are an example to follow.
We heard about Irom Sharmila Chanu. We were on the side of her long fair fight. Her long self sacrificing struggle couldn’t win in the end. But Manipur’s People should learn from her struggle . To the exploiter ruling class, People’s lifes are worthless. So, fasting will not give any solutions.
For Revolutionary changes, Manipur needs Marxist politics of revolutionary violence. That politics is obviously different than the Revisionist CPM-CPI.
Till date, thousands of people and revolutionary warriors have sacrificed their lives in the fight for Manipur. But many of them died in the nationalist struggle. Comrade Hijam Irabat said that fighting against other nationalities cannot be fought for the benefit of just their own people. Therefore,the ethnic fight is subjected to class struggle. Independent national development is possible only in socialist society. Freedom for nationalities is therefore part of the struggle for establishing socialism-communism. Hopefully, the oppressed people of different ethnicities of Manipur will understand this well.
We believe that the fight of Manipur and ours is one and the same. We have to fight together against a common enemy in South Asia. In the revolutionary battle of South Asia, we should fight shoulder by shoulder. We, on behalf of the people of Bangladesh would like to call on you.
We believe that in the revolutionary struggle in South Asia, democratic development of the whole South Asian people will be possible. Within that revolutionary struggle, hundreds of ethnic groups will be able to enjoy their independent autonomous development.
We have to fight together against the exploiter ruling class of South Asia.
Finally, I want to say something to the youth of Manipur. Potecting the motherland is a very important issue. You are responsible for protecting the soil of Manipur till your last breath. You are the rising sun of eight or nine o’clock in the morning. Your participation in the leadership of Manipur’s working class and peasants will accelerate the struggle of Manipur.
Friends in struggle,
The people of Bangladesh are not in a good situation. Fascism has been established there. All means of expression of people are being stopped. Anti-people Article 57 and Digital Security Act are produced to stop the people’s voice. The farmer does not get the cost of his produced crops, the worker does not get minimum wages for his living. There is no good environment for the education of the children. The riches going more rich, and the poor are more poor.
There are also thousands of revolutionaries killed in the name of crossfire, a term used by the state and police to verify the extra judicial killings. In the name of anti-drug campaign, people have been killed arbitrarily. The common people of Bangladesh are also in a bad situation.
The oppressed people of Bangladesh and the oppressed people of Manipur are friends of each other. We call upon you to stand for the sake of our struggle.
We believe that there is no country for workers and oppressed class. Therefore, the struggle of the whole world’s working class is one and identical.
Your fight is our fight.
Your struggle is our struggle.
Your victories are our victories.
Your defeats are our defeats.
Even though we are from different countries and different nations,
we are earn with the same ideology, strategy and aim’s.
Yawolna Yaifare! – Long Live Revolution!

September 2018: An entire month commemorating Hijam Irabot’s life, militancy and martyrdom

This September, the Manipur Proletariat Peoples Democratic Union (MPPDU) organized an entire month’s commemoration dedicated to the life and struggle of Hijam Irabot. Founder of the Communist Party of Manipur, Irabot also started the first armed resistance in Manipur. The Manipuri people honor Irabot as a national and socialist hero.

The culmination of the month’s commemoration took the form of a public gathering on September 30th, when over a thousand people gathered in Imphal’s outdoor stadium. The event was organized by Irabot Ningsing Pangba Lup, a committee formed by Socialist Students Union of Manipur (SSUM), Manipur Proletariat Peoples Democratic Union (MPPDU) and Proletarian Feminist Movement Manipur (PoFM). The day long commemoration was filmed and broadcast live on Manipuri local television.
The program began with a militant parade of school students, marching by a life-size picture of Hijam Irabot and honoring him with a military salute. The crowd was heard shouting, “Yawolna Yaifare!”, or “Long live the Revolution!”, to encourage the students.
A cultural program, organized by indigenous tribes of Manipur, with traditional songs and dances followed.

For the main program, speakers from the dais gave militant speeches, including Comrade Atif Anik, the President of the Revolutionary Student/Youth Movement, an organization based in Bangladesh and MPPDU and local representatives.
The program concluded with more traditional performances by women’s drumming and dance groups.
The march organized by the comrades for after the gathering was banned by the authorities. In its place, comrades called on supporters to take to the streets, and put up an altars in memory of Hijam Irabot in front of their houses. Thousands of lighted of candles illuminated Imphal’s streets, remembering the sacrifice of their beloved hero.

LONG LIVE THE 90th ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF PERU!

 

Proletarians of all countries, unite!

LONG LIVE THE 90th ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF PERU!

“The Congress serves the World Revolution, the People’s War serves it, the Congress serves the People’s War which is the principal form of struggle to change the world… the Congress has sanctioned Maoism as the third, new and superior stage. Which Party puts it forward like this? It is ours, in this sense it is the light of the world, the sole torch that can unite us with the communists in the world… it is a milestone, it serves to put Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as the command and guide of the World Revolution… The Congress gave us great results, wonderful perspectives, it will make time be Before the Congress and After the Congress, the Congress has decided our path by defining the general political line; thus they go against the line, go against the Congress, they rise against it, but who believes in renegades or mercenaries of imperialism… the Congress is a milestone of victory that will deeply mark the Party, the People’s War and the World Revolution for decades”.

Chairman Gonzalo – Unite around the Congress
[TN: Our italics]

On this 90th Anniversary of our glorious heroic combatant, the Communist Party of Peru, we express with raised fists, our greetings and strict and full subjection to our Great Leadership, Chairman Gonzalo, Great Leader of the Party and the Revolution, the greatest living Marxist-Leninist-Maoist on Earth, our firm commitment to defend the health and life dedicating our own lives for it. We separate ourselves, reject and combat the sinister “fake trials and life sentence” that are orchestrated by the Yankee Gendarme as part of its general counterrevolutionary offensive. What do they aim for with this offensive? Black intentions to discredit and further isolate him in the fascist concentration camp of the naval base that is controlled by the CIA – SIN in order to fulfill their demented plan to assassinate him. But there is a counterpart to their black dreams: Chairman Gonzalo is acknowledged as the Great Leader of the Proletarian Revolution because he is the one who has defined Maoism as the third, new and superior stage of Marxism, with his heroic communist forge, example and struggle that commands the New Great Wave of the Proletarian World Revolution.

Throughout the globe, Communist Parties and Maoist Organizations, the international proletariat and peoples of the world develop and unfold the successful campaign of strategic character: Defend the health and life of Chairman Gonzalo! Inseparably from: Put Maoism as the command and guide of the Proletarian World Revolution! Long live Chairman Gonzalo, Great Leader of the Party and the Revolution! Furthermore, gathering the decisive contributions of Chairman Gonzalo for a development of Marxism, they grasp the almighty Gonzalo Thought, in this sense the successful, bellicose and forceful celebrations for the 50th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, for the 200 years of the birth of our founder Karl Marx and the celebrations for the 100 years of the Socialist October Revolution and under its guide they are untiringly struggling to initiate and develop People’s Wars while constituting and reconstituting – or, like in our case, advancing through firm steps in the general reorganization – Militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Parties.

Chairman Gonzalo has transformed the fascist dungeon of the naval base in the highest and most shining trench of combat, heroic communist example that every day illuminates us, strengthens us, calls us to persist in giving the life for the party and revolution, his heroic example demands us to develop People’s War serving the Proletarian World Revolution, this we do and this we will do, because we are firmly convinced that Chairman Gonzalo is People’s War until Communism!

There, the wretched revisionists and opportunists who dream about the “dialog” of imperialism and the reaction, both the revisionist and capitulationist right opportunist line (revisionist and capitulationist ROL) and the left opportunist line (LOL), their current path is the rampant enlistment and thus the just decision of the party came sooner than later to them.

Likewise, we reaffirm ourselves in our almighty ideology of the international proletariat, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism as universal truth and its concrete and creative application for the Peruvian revolution, the Gonzalo Thought, almighty proletarian thought. It is with Gonzalo Thought that we have been solving complex and difficult problems that our revolution goes through. We steel our souls convinced and assured that the ideological and political line decides everything, we persist and will persist in its creative application, with communist loyalty.

On this special date, we greet, elated by optimism, the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, Gonzalo Thought Communist Party of Peru, heroic combatant, war machine, organized vanguard of the Peruvian proletariat, its whole party leadership system that, in hard struggle and combat against the sinister attacks of the enemy, is forged in the image and likeness of Chairman Gonzalo. We greet the leaders, cadres, militants and masses who, by grasping our Party Unity Base (PUB), persist in the pending task of the general reorganization.

Chairman Gonzalo forged Communists with the party’s own strength and in this determined commitment, we faced the two principles of the reactionaries: annihilating leadership and separating the guerrillas from the masses. And, both are miserably failing.

Likewise, we reaffirm ourselves in party events, principally in our I Party Congress, a Marxist Congress, a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, Gonzalo Thought Congress that has, at its highest level, sanctioned our Party Unity Base with its triple content: our scientific ideology Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, the Communist Program and the General Political Line with the Military Line at its center. We reaffirm ourselves in the I, II and in the glorious, historical and transcendental III plenum, whose masterful synthesis is the reaffirmation of Chairman Gonzalo of September 24, 1992. We reaffirm ourselves convinced that the events, work sessions and agreements that emanated from the leadership are fulfilled in arduous struggle, in the midst of the difficulties, twists and inflections that our revolution demands.

We express our reaffirmation in the People’s War, the undefeated torch of hope that persists and flares against the wind for more than 38 years. Chairman Gonzalo taught us: to maintain it is a success, but if it permeates the masses, it is a complete success! We greet the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), red soldiers of Chairman Gonzalo, combatants who gave their precious blood, assuming the cost and the quota challenging death, the PLA, backbone of the New Power, which is principally based on the poor peasantry that, under the leadership of the party, faces imperialist and reactionary repression and genocide, we greet the masses that support us and the political prisoners and prisoners of war that, in hard struggles against the genocides committed by this old reactionary state and the sinister complicity of the revisionist and capitulationist ROL, resist until today in the trenches of combat.

Our party was founded in 1928 by José Carlos Mariátegui on clear Marxist-Leninist bases – the  constitution of the party –, but at his death, the line was abandoned and the leadership was assaulted, the party life has been sinuous, in general suffering usurpation of opportunists and revisionists, sinking the party in the swamp of parliamentary cretinism, decades of sinister desires and electoral and personal appetites. It was Chairman Gonzalo who, in the mid-1960s, assumed the titanic and historic task of reconstituting the party, which was 15 years of intense, tenacious and persistent struggle, sweeping away the ballast of revisionism that was entrenched in the party for then, imposing a party to conquer power for the proletariat and the people with People’s War.

In 1980, The Initiation of the Armed Struggle of 80, the great epic of the People’s War began, justified and correctly defining the political moment, at the international level the Strategic Offensive of the Proletarian World Revolution (SOPWR) and the national level as in the midst of the general crisis of the contemporary Peruvian society and destruction of bureaucratic capitalism. Chairman Gonzalo taught us: “the People’s War gave us a more complete idea of ​​Maoism” so, the Party and the People’s War gave us historical milestone for the revolution in Peru and for the World Revolution. Our Marxist I Congress, Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, Gonzalo Thought Congress, established with clarity that this would mark us for decades, the revolutionary practice proves it clearly, next year we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of our glorious and transcendental I Congress and it corresponds to commemorate it.

The international, national and party situation makes the moments that we live to be historical, and, calls us to tension all our forces to fulfill the political tasks that the class, the international proletariat, peoples of the world and the Peruvian people demand. The masses demand us, they cry for more and more People’s War and we can not be blind and deaf to that cry, or else we would not be communists, only by letterhead, and for that qualifier there are the wretched revisionists and renegades.

The party is going through a process of General Reorganization. How much have we advanced? Grasping our PUB and the defense of the Great Leadership with People’s War, we have been firmly advancing, the positive weights highly. We, the left, – in a process of regrouping and consolidation – have been facing the general counterrevolutionary offensive headed by the genocidal Yankee Gendarme who feed their cohorts from the new revisionism of the revisionist and capitulationist ROL and of the LOL in Peru and Avakian and Prachanda who were its sinister expressions in the International Communist Movement (ICM).

The unmasking, combat and sweeping away has been in all levels, at the beginning of the second decade of this century, a series of pseudo generated organisms or supporters in the countryside, the city and abroad managed by the CIA-SIN through its agents were created, seeking to traffic and generate confusion among the masses in order to infiltrate the party organisms. There are still those who persistently continue to confuse our people and peoples of the world. Simultaneously the two-line struggle is propelled against the revisionist and capitulationist ROL and LOL outside and within the ranks of the party, convergences and disguised isolated positions were expressed that in fact opposed the General Reorganization: “because-ism”, “personal strife”, “feuds” etc, developing entrism with the risk to blow the apparatuses. All its plans have failed and will fail, the others, have flown like doves, too coward to develop the internal struggle, and their sinister act has even turned in and murdered comrades and combatants.

The general reorganization is about to culminate in its phase of laying solid foundations and is combined with the celebration for the 30th anniversary of the I Congress of the party: “TO UNITE AROUND THE CONGRESS, TO UNFOLD THE GENERAL REORGANIZATION OF THE PARTY, IN THE MIDST OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR “, To unite around the congress is to cohere and consolidate the militancy, the combatants and the masses organized in the light of our PUB, the foundation that guides all our revolutionary action, to culminate and lay foundations through developing the People’s War subject to the defense of the life and health of our Great Leadership, Chairman Gonzalo and serving the World Revolution.

Comrades, combatants, Peruvian people, the incontrovertible reality is one, the objective conditions have matured, the semi-feudal and semi-colonial character has sharpened, bureaucratic capitalism has deepened. The revolutionary situation in development is strengthened. The Communist Party of Peru has never paralyzed its march, the People’s War did not stop, the left holds firm, resolute, developing with effort and struggling in this process. We are the forge, conscious of our responsibility, the need and historical tendency, and the communist principles demands us to merge each day more with the justified people’s struggles that face the criminalization and militarization of their struggles, principally the poor peasantry that demands: Land to the tiller! Against the new land concentration of the landlords! Against the dispossession of the peasant, native communities, mainly by the imperialist mining, hydrocarbons and forestry companies, among others, with their lackeys, the big bourgeois and landlords! Against the importation of agricultural products to the detriment of national agricultural production!

We set ourselves apart from and reject the sinister positions of the revisionist and capitulationist ROL that the problem of the land has been solved, denying the semifeudality in the country, denying the thesis of Chairman Mao Tse Tung, which was developed by Chairman Gonzalo, on bureaucratic capitalism, that “There is no longer a democratic revolution but a socialist one.” A complete rejection of Gonzalo Thought, which only seeks to cover their capitulation and rotten debauchery from their path of parliamentary cretinism for a greater enlistment.

We call to merge with the proletariat and masses of neighborhoods and shantytowns, teachers, university students, agricultural proletarians, farmers, peasant communities, native communities, indigenous peoples who fight and resist the reactionary anti-trade union, anti-people offensive, criminalizing their struggles, the right to strike, of unionization, of expression and opinion against exploitation and arbitrary dismissals, etc, deny collective negotiation, right to land, to work, denial of the right to strike, conquests and benefits extended to all state workers in general, against the privatization of health, education and social security – let us reject it combatively.

That means, the spoil is privatization (concession) and exorbitant surplus value for them, and hunger salaries and pensions, overexploitation, dismissals, misery, anemia, tuberculosis together with greater pauperization for our people. It is proven and must be highlighted, because the revisionist and capitulationist ROL and the LOL deny it, within the cyclical evolutionary process it is fulfilled that the bureaucratic capitalism in the second half of each decade enters a greater crisis, goes into decline and, the principal, the political derivation that matures the conditions until the People’s War and the development of the revolution in our country. The old and new revisionists and opportunists of all hues, instead of developing the democratic path, put themselves at the tail of the bureaucratic path and offer to “restructure their old State” via an obsolete and amorphous “Constituent Assembly” and through participation in the reactionary elections that are managed by their Yankee master to adjust it to their plans.

Chairman Gonzalo sentenced: What has the People’s War shown? That the old Peruvian state is rotten to the core, perhaps it is not a reality that bursts in the face of those revisionists, opportunists and renegades day by day. In there, they submit with their amphora head and vote tongue, their offers and enlistments does not have limits. We reaffirm ourselves in what Chairman Gonzalo told us: “to annihilate the People’s War will lead them to unleash an unjust war” that is, the development of their counter-subversive war, the Yankee strategy to develop their War of Low Intensity and that requires absolute centralization (to trample on their bourgeois democracy, their laws and their institutions specified in presidential absolutism, all concentrated in the executive, in a pro-Yankee fascist clique that today heads the pawn Vizcarra).

Imperialism, principally Yankee imperialism, needs fascist cliques to lead the fascist, genocidal and motherland-selling regime under the hegemony and leadership of the big bourgeoisie in its comprador faction (covert dictatorships) to exercise its greater domination and interference and intervention on the old state, managed and monitored through the Yankee embassy in Peru.

Cliques that develop in a process of centralization, strife and purge. Just like it was with Bari Hermosa, Montesinos and Fujimori himself, passing through Giampetri during the APRA government, etc and now, lastly, Kuczynski.

The current political crisis of the fascist, genocidal and motherland-selling regime, the contend between the executive and the parliament and from which the corruption scandals were uncovered, both in the executive, in the judiciary, public ministry among other public and private institutions, through the Yankee agent Gorriti and audio leaks made by the DEA-DIRANDRO and its “Constellation” listening system, aims to conduct into presidential absolutism by legitimizing Vizcarra as the head of the fascist, genocidal and motherland-selling regime and to bring the “reforms in justice administration” perhaps via referendum, so that the Yankee justice department has control and can handle it according to their interests, such as in Brazil, Argentina, etc.

What do we see? The bankruptcy of all the parties of the big bourgeoisie and landlords engaged in contentions and mutual denunciations of corruption cases, links to drug trafficking, organized crime and espionage, among others.

And, as part of their task of restructuring their old state, there are the regional and municipal elections that have reflected the replacement of “gamonalillos” as a political evidence of their semifeudality, bosses and lackeys linked to drug trafficking, land trafficking, civil construction mafias, etc. They are part of the plunder and clear expression of feudalism in our country. What corresponds? To persist in the boycott politics of: Elections No, People’s War Yes! The results at the national level of absence and of blank votes have shown a clear rejection to this old and obsolete system of elections, parties, replacements and populisms.

It is a party need to make the leap so that the democratic path is embodied that we have entered to develop ourselves as the People´s Path of Liberation, it requires us to see the two hills, the growing intervention and interference of imperialism, principally Yankee imperialism, at a time that they enhance their hegemonic plans in Latin America as an area of dominance in its contend with the Russian superpower and the Chinese power and others.

We must raise the political consciousness of the class, the people and the masses with a clearly anti-imperialist character. Chairman Gonzalo warned us that the territory, the nation, the motherland was and is at risk by those who rule. We can not consent!

On the other hand, at international level, the historical period established by Chairman Mao Tse Tung, of struggle against the two superpowers – the North American and the Russian -, is still fully valid, it is the voice of a general call for the peoples of the world. We reject revisionist and reactionary positions of “bipolarity” “multilateralism” or of “three superpowers”. This is absurd! So-called “Maoists” that deny Maoism? The imperialist system is experiencing one of the greatest crises in its history, this is part of its general, economic and financial crisis in decline since 2008, bourgeois economists say that it has entered into depression and a new crisis is coming.

Yankee imperialism, in its condition of sole hegemonic superpower in its struggle against the other superpower, the Russian, needs to achieve “strategic superiority”. As Chairman Mao Tse Tung accurately established, that, in order to unleash a World War III, the Yankees aggressively and desperately launch themselves into it and dream of a “new world order” but fail. On the contrary, they are on their heels. This is how they seek to dominate the intermediate zone, basically the Third World. They aim to consolidate their area of domination, in the case of Latin America and strengthen their areas of influence in Asia and especially the Expanded Middle East and thereby advance the siege against Russia and prevent the development of China. Thus we see areas of dominion, areas of influence, collusion and contend and new repartition fueling the inter-imperialist contradictions.

In that context and within its doctrine of “national security” that imperialism applies, solely or in coalition since 2001 under its “global and total strategy of fight against terrorism”, it reveals itself to the oppressed nations and peoples of the world as the greatest genocidal of the 21st century. In this context, the principal contradiction in the world is clearly shown to be between oppressed nations and imperialism, unfolding a despicable aggressive and merciless genocide against the Arab people under its ragged pirate flags of “human rights”, “humanitarian aid”, “defense of democracy”, but is practicing repression and extermination of children, women and the elderly, widespread torture, destruction of the cultural legacy, war without prisoners, and, as always, steals everything, burns everything, kills everything, legitimizes concentration camps, selective killings via drones, conformation of groups, and mercenary and terrorist troops, (Al Qaeda, coup d’état, etc.). They do this against Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Libya, Egypt, Syria – pointing towards Iran, etc. Yankees out from the Expanded Middle East! Long live the Arab people! At the same time, in Latin America, comes a greater increasing development of its counter-subversive strategy of War of Low Intensity, unleashing its general counterrevolutionary offensive in its eagerness to consolidate its area of domination and to eradicate Russian and Chinese penetration. ”

Increasing militarization under the pretext of fighting against “drug trafficking” and “the fight against organized crime” – see Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile, etc. Since the Plan Colombia Colombia became its counterrevolutionary platform, until its entry into NATO, where after the farce of the “peace agreement”, “cease fire”, “round of talks” to which the armed revisionism of the FARC was submitted, paramilitarism, impunity and the murder and persecution of political and social leaders are now promoted. They also seek to reverse the processes where the regimes are being led by the big bourgeoisie in its bureaucratic fraction – Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, etc. – using its CIA – NSA – USAID agencies and the sinister role of the Catholic Church preparing conditions for military intervention, solely or in coalition with the Latin American reactionary armies. Yankees out of Latin America! Long live the people of Venezuela and Nicaragua!

Thus, in this context, they vent the imperialist crisis on the proletariat and peoples of Latin America, deepening bureaucratic capitalism, restructuring the old landlord-bureaucratic states, seeking to annihilate the People’s War in Peru and to prevent the constitution and reconstitution of the militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoists communist parties, who in hard, tenacious and ardent struggle march for the unification of the communists in the world, of which the V Meeting of Latin America and the I Meeting of European Communist Parties and Maoist Organizations are decisive milestones in the steps to the conformation of the future Communist International (IC) commanded by Maoism, even more, assuming the contributions of universal validity of Chairman Gonzalo.

From here we greet to the People’s Wars that forcefully struggle and destroy the three mountains of oppression and exploitation while generating New Power. Long live the People’s War in India, Turkey and the Philippines! We call on the left in Nepal to resume the sole path of true emancipation.
As an undefeated, unfading light, Maoism defiantly commanding the New Great Wave of the Proletarian World Revolution, crushing the general counterrevolutionary offensive led by the Yankee Gendarme and unmasking and sweeping away the old and new revisionism that at the most obsolete, most sinister moment of more genocide and world militarization, sprout like pus in defense of the imperialist system and reactionary regimes.

Death to revisionism, the principal danger of the revolution, complicit of imperialism!
Long live Chairman Gonzalo, Great Leader of the Party and the Revolution!
Uphold, defend and apply Marxism–Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought!
Long live the Communist Party of Peru!
Long live the 90th Anniversary of the Communist Party of Peru!
Long live the invincible People´s War!
Unite around the I Congress, General Reorganization of the Party in the midst of People´s War!
Down with the fascist, genocidal and motherland-selling regime pro-Yankee that today is headed by the most obsequious servile pawn Vizcarra!
Long live the People´s Wars in India, Turkey and Philippines!
Long live the International Communist Movement and the Constitution and Reconstitution of Militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communist Parties!
Long live Maoism, down with revisionism!
Honor and Glory to the Peruvian proletariat and people!

Communist Party of Peru
