Proletarians of all countries, unite!
LONG LIVE THE 42ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR!
-People’s Movement Peru, an organism set up by the Party for work abroad-
Today we celebrate, full of enthusiasm and with revolutionary optimism at its peak, the 42nd anniversary of the beginning of the People’s War in Peru (ILA 80), led by the Communist Party of Peru (PCP) under the leadership of Chairman Gonzalo, leader of the Party and of the revolution.
In the past year, on September 11, 2021, Chairman Gonzalo offered his life for the Party and the revolution in the highest trench of combat in the people’s war, his courageous example shows the mettle of a great Communist leader, the greatest Marxist-Leninist-Maoist of the present epoch, teacher of communists, continuator of Marx, Lenin and Chairman Mao Tsetung, centre of Party unification and guarantee of victory leading us to communism. As he always taught to carry life on his fingertips, Chairman Gonzalo, in more than 29 years of fierce combat in absolute isolation and under torture, until his last breath faced his executioners with his fist raised in defiance of death for the unfading Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, for the PCP and the BUP, for the people’s war and the world proletarian revolution. With sure and steely faith in the cause of communism he gave his precious blood for what he believed in. This is a great war deed of the people’s war. It shows that the people’s war in Peru, far from ending, is rising up and calling upon us to inflame our entire geography anew.
With his heroic and defiant death, Chairman Gonzalo defeated the plans of imperialism, reaction and revisionism to deal him a final blow as part of the counterrevolutionary plan to annihilate the people’s war and won a great political, military and moral victory for the party and the people’s war, the international proletariat and the peoples of the world. They tried to present him as a capitulationist and revisionist, as a renegade head of the rats of the ROL, they tried to make him say that his all-powerful Gonzalo Thought was no longer valid, they tried to make him renounce the 1st Marxist Congress, Marxist-Leninist-Maoist, Gonzalo Thought of Maoism, the programme and the BUP with its centre the military line. But he stood firm and defiant and continued to fight hard and sacrificially for the Peruvian and world revolution to the end, proving that the people’s war in Peru has not stopped for a single moment because the life of the Party never ceases. Demonstrating the invincibility of the people’s war.
Yankee imperialism headed by Biden, Peruvian reaction headed by the president, the counter-revolutionary opportunist rondo-rounder Pedro Castillo Terrones and revisionism headed by the rat “Miriam”, head of the right opportunist, revisionist and capitalist line (ROL), have reaped a miserable defeat that plunges them into a greater crisis and decomposition. The old bureaucratic landlord state in the service of imperialism, mainly US imperialism, is going through the biggest crisis in its 200-year history, only to be swept away by the people’s war.
The masses are fighting, denouncing and rejecting the reactionary government headed by opportunism and sustained by its blackest conspiracy against the people with all the other reactionary parties. Analysts of reaction themselves have pointed this out, saying that the Castillo government is a product of the social and political decomposition that encompasses the state itself and that it is maintained because it is in nobody’s interest to remove it, that is, there is a greater collusion and struggle between the two reactionary factions and their groups and dupes who represent them, Contrary to what the opportunists and revisionists say, there is a super coexistence in parliament between Fujimorism and anti-Fujimorism, which explains why Castillo remains in government and the most scandalous laws that have been passed in mutual agreement. That is the “popular” government that the ROL defends and their demands for a new constitution is to serve to restructure the old state to re-impose bureaucratic capitalism and annihilate the people’s war, the dreams of hyenas like their imperialist and reactionary masters. The masses need people’s war, it is the only road to their liberation from centuries of oppression and exploitation, The masses demand the leadership of the PCP.
On this occasion, we reiterate our greetings and reaffirm our full and unconditional subjection to our all-powerful ideology Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, principally Gonzalo Thought, the solid foundation of its leadership, and to our heroic fighter, the Communist Party of Peru, to its entire leadership system; to all the events, documents and party agreements, to the First Congress, the Marxist Congress, the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Congress, Gonzalo Thought, an imperishable milestone of victory won in the heat of the People’s War, which established the basis of Party Unity: Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, Programme and General Political Line with its centre the Military Line. Likewise, to the historic and transcendental Third Plenum and to its masterly synthesis the Speech of Our Leadership, which shines brightly and defiantly before the world as a weapon of combat, which calls us to persist in our tasks for what we are, communists in formation.
Our commitment to give our lives to defend the leadership of Chairman Gonzalo and his almighty Gonzalo Thought in order to serve the completion of the task of the General Reorganisation of the Party.
Express our greetings to the militants, fighters and masses of the Communist Party of Peru. Our greetings to the People’s Liberation Army and the New Power.
To express our greetings to the international proletariat and the peoples of the world. To the international communist movement and to the Parties and Organisations which, incarnating Maoism, are struggling to make it the sole command and guide of the new great wave of the world proletarian revolution in the stage of its strategic offensive and the sweeping away of imperialism and reaction from the face of the earth by means of people’s war. When, as an expression of all the above, more and more masses are rising up everywhere and expressing great activity ready to revolt, it indicates that we are entering a new period of revolutions. The objective and subjective conditions for revolution have become much more favourable all over the world. This determines the tasks and tactics of the communists in our country and in the world.
We salute the revolution as the main historical and political trend in the world. To the forthcoming Maoist Unified International Conference to give birth to the New International Organisation of the Proletariat as an important step forward in the reunification of the international communist movement into a new International as a product of the development of the people’s war on the planet.
We salute the 50th anniversary of the founding of the TKP/ML, by its great leader Ibrahim Kaypakaya, and the people’s war it leads.
We express our deep class hatred against the new revisionism led by the damned rats of the ROL in the country as in the world, which serves the general counter-revolutionary offensive led by US imperialism as the sole hegemonic superpower, the main enemy of the peoples of the world and the world counter-revolutionary gendarme in collusion and struggle with the atomic superpower Russia and other imperialist powers.
Down with Russian imperialism’s war of aggression against Ukraine! Down with US imperialism, the main enemy of the peoples of the world! People’s War until Communism!
“Before the people’s war, everything has been tried here, the elections, the creeping electioneering, to the point of weariness, to the point of boredom (…) We have seen city uprisings which prove that this is not the road; we have seen how the peasantry has many times shaken the very depths of this country, but we had not tried the only road, the true road, the road of the people’s war. It is that road that we dared to take; then, we were a handful, compared to today, although we were perhaps as many as the fingers on our hands who persisted in defending the Party. As Chairman Mao told us: “the problem is not how many, the problem is whether you want to or not”. And we wanted, want and will want the people’s war; no one will get us out of it, with the seizure of power as the beginning. That’s how it will be, time more, time less, and the time has already begun to run for this conquest, it seems that it was not so, but if we go deeper into things, it is so; but the people’s war will continue to accompany us, because with it we will defend the new state and with it we will ignite the parts of the world that are still imprisoned and we will not stop until we see, party-wise, the legions of iron converge in a sea of red, armed, that waves over the earth, shakes it and stirs it up and turns it upside down. So shall it be.”
The heroic and victorious surrender of his own life by Chairman Gonzalo to impose Maoism as the sole command and guide of the world proletarian revolution, the Party, the people’s war and the triumph of the democratic revolution in our country as part of and at the service of the world proletarian revolution leads us to understand more deeply the need to serve to culminate the General Reorganisation of the Party in and for the people’s war by inseparably and irreconcilably fighting imperialism, reaction and revisionism, mainly the new revisionism headed by the ROL.
It is up to us to hold firmly to the leadership of Chairman Gonzalo and his all-powerful Gonzalo Thought and to implement the plans to complete the general reorganisation of the Party. The history of the Party shows that when Marxism is abandoned because of the treacherous action of revisionism, what we have to do to get out of the twists and turns is to firmly take up Marxism, today Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, Gonzalo Thought, and thus we will necessarily overcome the bend and the inflection and the people’s war will make the leap towards the conquest of power in the whole country.
LONG LIVE THE 42ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE PEOPLE’S WAR!
