Proletarians of all countries, unite!
LET'S CELEBRATE THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY
OF THE GREAT PROLETARIAN CULTURAL REVOLUTION!
"What is fundamental in Maoism?
Power is fundamental in Maoism. Power for the proletariat,
power for the dictatorship of the proletariat, power based
on the armed force led by the Communist Party. More explicitly,
this is 1) power under the leadership of the proletariat
in the democratic revolution, 2) power for the dictatorship
of the proletariat in the socialist and cultural revolutions,
3) power based on the armed force led by the Communist Party,
conquered and defended through people's war."
"On Marxism-Leninism-Maoism", First Congress of
the Communist Party of Peru
With a resolute will and the highest revolutionary
optimism, the Peru People's Movement, generated organization of
the Communist Party of Peru (PCP) for the Party work abroad, call
on all the Communist Parties and revolutionary organizations inside
and outside the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM)
to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the initiation of the Great
Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR) in China (1966-1976), the
most earth-shaking political process and the greatest mass mobilization
ever seen on Earth, a great historical milestone in the development
of the dictatorship of the proletariat towards the final securing
of the power of the proletariat, and therefore of transcendental
historical importance in humanity's inexorable march to communism.
The GPCR is, in historical perspective, the most transcendental
of the development of Marxism-Leninism by Chairman Mao, and represented
Marxism's leap to a third, new and superior stage: Marxism-Leninism-Maoism,
The celebration of the anniversary of the GPCR must serve as a
powerful reaffirmation of our solemn promise to fight tenaciously
and implacably for the proletarian leadership of the democratic
revolution, the development of the construction of socialism and
the continuation of the revolution under the dictatorship of the
proletariat, as proletarian cultural revolution; when imperialism
deepens its decomposition and the revolution has become the principal
tendency of history, amidst the most complex and largest wars
seen to date and the implacable struggle against modern revisionism,
and even more against the new revisionism.
The celebration of the anniversary of the GPCR is part of a protracted
campaign to impose, with people's war, Maoism as the only command
and guide of the world proletarian revolution; serving its embodiment
in the peoples of the world and to crush the general counterrevolutionary
offensive that is headed by Yankee imperialism as the only hegemonic
superpower. It is the celebration of our unbreakable faith and
absolute conviction of the triumph of communism; in times of great
disorder under the sky; it is to celebrate the rising Red Sun;
thus, it is the oath before the unfading red banner with the golden
hammer and sickle of the iron legions of the international proletariat,
that, challenging death, are launched in the new great wave of
the world proletarian revolution under the battle cry: People's
War Until Communism!
Thus, the celebration of this anniversary of the GPCR is a renewal
of our promise to never lay down our arms until communism, a promise
that falls upon all the communists of the world; and therefore,
the celebration also serves the reconstitution of the Communist
Parties as militarized Marxist-Leninist-Maoist communist parties,
that initiate and develop people's war in all the corners of the
world, as soon as possible; in this way it also serves to support
the communists in Nepal, see the complex situation that the Communist
Party of Nepal (Maoist) faces and reaffirm that for the international
proletariat and the oppressed peoples of the world, for all the
communists, revolutionaries and progressives of the world, there
is no other option than to culminate the democratic revolution
through the conquest of power in the whole country, by way of
the guns of the revolutionary army. We Maoists are supporters
of the omnipotence of the revolutionary war and among us no one,
whoever it may be, can let themselves move even an inch from the
course that is guaranteed by two principles: "All power grows
out of the barrel of a gun" and "It is right to rebel!", the only
proletarian, people's and democratic road, the road of the people's
Therefore we are for carrying out the celebration of the 40th
anniversary of the GPCR within the campaign for Maoism inseparably
united with the campaign to defend the life of Chairman Gonzalo,
and giving it a great impulse through this celebration, generating
a debate sustained by historical facts, seeing the advance of
the world revolution through laws that are inevitably fulfilled,
see where to go and what we must do. We are for imposing the light
of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism amidst a great struggle of ideas. Therefore
we call upon all the Parties and organizations inside and outside
the RIM to propel and participate jointly in this great celebration
through the rest of 2006 and until May 2007, through all kinds
of events, activities and actions, extensively mobilizing to achieve
a great active participation of the masses. As part of this we
invite the CoRIM, all the Parties and organizations inside and
outside the RIM and the revolutionaries of the world to participate
in the activities that we carry out within this great celebration,
which has an objective of such high importance.
We will hold the First International Conference to Celebrate the
40th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution
on September 9, 2006, in Germany. We call on everyone to participate
in this to make a great opening to the triumphant series of events
and conferences that will mark the firm step to the rhythm of
the people's war and the march of the new great wave of the world
proletarian revolution within which this campaign unfolds.
Long Live the 40th Anniversary of the GPCR!
Unite Under Maoism!
People's War Until Communism!
