The historical speech of Chairman Gonzalo from the shining trench of combat was held today, 24th of September, 31 years ago. This speech was an important blow against imperialism, mainly Yankee as the sole hegemonic superpower, and the reactionary old Peruvian State. They tried to undermine the Chairman as the leader of the Party and the Revolution showing him in a cage and with a prisoner’s uniform in front of press cameras that would record him. However, he turned the situation and conducted his transcendental speech, truly a weapon of combat, and giving a new boost to the World Proletarian Revolution.
