resolution N° 1 - Special Meeting of Parties of RIM for International Conference of mlm Parties and Organisations of the world - May first 2012

The imperialist system is going through the most severe crisis since the 1930s. The current attempts to address and overcome the crisis only serve to deepen and extend it.
The structural crisis that emerged in the field of finance has gradually extended to the field of production, bringing about a deepening recession. The crisis proceeds under the law of uneven development within the pursuit of the maximum extortion of surplus value and the contention on the world market.
The crisis has its origin in the laws of running of the capitalist system itself. It is the expression of the limits of production for profit, and the contradiction between productive forces and relations of production, including the general and global nature of the production and private appropriation. In the world scene this means an ever growing gap between the wealth of a handful of imperialist countries and the poverty of three quarters of human beings in the countries oppressed by imperialism, between the wealth in the hands of the bourgeoisie and the relative and absolute impoverishment of proletarians and masses in the imperialist countries , between the overflowing richness of a parasitic and comprador bourgeoisie and the living conditions of misery and hunger of the proletariat and broad masses in the countries oppressed by imperialism.
It is clear that a system dominated by these laws, these dynamics, can only go into crisis, and overproduction and capital surplus become factors of crisis.
The phenomena of heightened and speculative “financialization” are the tip of the iceberg of the dynamics of the system, which become point of implosion and explosion.
The “financialization” of the economy – the main immediate cause of the crisis – tends to reject any control. So the efforts of capitalism and its ruling imperialist powers to get out of crisis through regulation and control of the financial markets and use of the opportunities offered by high growth rates, even if disarticulated, of some countries such as China, India and Brazil have so far not succeeded. Although these efforts should not be underestimated, they cannot ensure more than a temporary recovery, one which opens the door to new and even more distressing crises.
The world is still faced with two possibilities: the exit from capitalism or a painful temporary recovery from this crisis by strengthening, enhancing the mechanisms of capital and thus prolonging the misery of the masses.
The imperialist bourgeoisie all over the world take advantage of the crisis to restructure imperialism on a global scale and save the interests of their class for their profits.
This leads to unloading the vicious weight of the crisis on the workers and masses. In both the oppressed countries and imperialist countries, unemployment, job insecurity and the cost of living increase, exploitation is ratcheted up to modern forms of slavery, workers' rights are reduced, social achievements won through years of struggles are erased, factories are closed with massive layoffs, peasants are ruined and driven to suicide, cuts in social expenditures and privatization of education and healthcare grow, the logic of commodification and profit is extended even to primary goods, such as water, air, sun, etc..
These policies are carried out within the contention for domination on the imperialist world market and geopolitical strategic areas, but the unitary character of the policies to unload crisis on the proletarians and the masses is emphatically clear.
The policy of imperialism accentuates and makes more and more catastrophic the effects of the system in terms of ecological and natural disasters. Imperialism transforms factors of development in the field of science, culture and education, information technology, access to media, communication, extension of the freedom of young people and the processes of emancipation of women, into new and more refined chains. In the context of crisis this results in massive intellectual unemployment, social control and most extreme forms of barbarism, new neo medieval attacks on women's rights and the regimentation of youth.
The balance of power among the imperialists is in a flux. Though the US still remains the sole super power its capacities have been considerably weakened, by the resistance of is victims and the crisis. This gave some room for the EU grouping. However similar factors have negatively impacted on their position too. Russia had not been affected so much by the crisis. Through its axis with China and consolidating ties with erstwhile Soviet Union republics, it has gained some advantage and has stepped up contention. Overall collusion is still principal in inter-imperialist relations. But imperialism in crisis, develops within it contradictions that can become potential sources of a new world war. Imperialist powers, mainly the US, unleash and accentuate wars of aggression, invasion, and neo-colonialism in the different regions of the world where their interests are vital or threatened. In developing these wars, it continues with the arms race and gets equipped with more and more devastating military instruments, surpassing all limits enshrined in international conventions and human rights.
One or the other form of fascistic control has always been the norm in oppressed countries, even where a parliamentary system exists. In recent years, a tendency to modern fascism grows inside the imperialist countries also. This takes shape according to the characteristics of history, the reality and the culture of each country. It strives to establish once again the totalitarian, racist, securitarian and police-state forms of the rule of the bourgeoisie.
Imperialism is poverty, reaction and war. The crisis reveals that welfare, democracy and peace become more and more words that cover an opposite substance.
The devastating economic crisis of imperialism and its impact on proletarians and the broad masses have awakened worldwide a wave of struggles and revolts.

In the countries oppressed by imperialism, the protests, rebellions and liberation struggles have found in the revolts in Arab countries and in the Persian Gulf a new height and a new dawn. Young people, proletarians and the masses and, in some cases, organized sectors of workers, attacked and overthrew dictatorial regimes subservient to imperialism that seemed permanent. This has paved the way for new anti-imperialist, anti-Zionist, anti-feudal, new-democratic revolutions.
False anti-imperialist regimes, such as those of Libya, Syria, Iran, and openly pro-imperialist ones such as those in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain. Yemen, Morocco, Algeria, as well as the military regimes that have replaced the reactionary tyrants in Tunisia and Egypt, unleashed massacres and repression. Hiding under the flag of democracy imperialism intervened in these struggles and maneuvered to remove unreliable regimes and replace worn out servitors with new ones. It launched a war and occupied Libya. But the wave of "Arab springtimes" continue. Globally they have achieved an important position as a new front in the battle between imperialism and the peoples. They join those existing in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine. In these countries, the occupation and invasions of imperialists and Zionists have faced heavy resistance. This forced them to reshape their occupation plans and prevented them in a substantial manner from realizing their aims. Apart from the Arab and West Asian countries, people in Latin America, Africa and other regions of Asia have repeatedly taken to the streets to resist the attacks on their livelihoods. The persistent and growing labor strikes and peasant struggles in China is notable.
In this new wave of struggle and resistance we must support and strengthen the struggle for the liberation of peoples and for new democracy, towards socialism and communism, and oppose the pro-Western and Islamist currents which ride the tiger of people’s struggles in order to impose new chains and new subordination to the reactionary classes and their masters of all time, imperialism, mainly of the U.S. and Europe.
The wave of unrest, flaring up of rebellions and struggles involving hundreds of thousands of youth in the imperialist countries is a distinguishing feature of the present world. The exciting uprisings of the proletarian youth, which shakes the imperialist citadels, marks the entry of a new generation. Facing a life without a future, through their rebellions they shout "it is right to rebel" and declare that it is capitalism that has no future. Now fused, now in parallel, this development is coupled to a rise in labor struggles. General strikes have summoned to action the whole workers movement, especially in countries hit hardest by the crisis Greece, Spain, Italy...
The workers' struggles have had a new development in Eastern Europe, where to the bite of wild capitalism following the collapse of false socialist regimes, was added the quick transformation into systems even worse than before.
New waves of immigrants flock to the imperialist countries in hope of a better life. They flee from poverty and war devastations caused by these countries. To reach their destinations they have to put their lives at risk through untold suffering which often turn the seas into cemeteries. The imperialists respond with harsh anti-immigrant laws and racism. The emergence of modern fascism, of police states, the growing frequency of wars of aggression and anti-immigrant laws have been responded to by the masses through the development of anti-fascist and anti-racist movements, and broad movements against the war.
This is the context in which a potential new wave of the world proletarian revolution develops and emerges. It has as its reference points and strategic anchor the people's wars led by Maoist parties.
To this we must add the preparation of several new people's wars, particularly in Turkey and South Asia, with the potential for it in Latin America, and throughout the rest of the world, with the constitution of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist (MLM) communist
parties. In this framework, the new MLM communist parties in the imperialist countries represent the potential for a quantum leap in revolutionary struggle and the unity of the two currents of the world proletarian revolution: the socialist revolution in the imperialist countries and the new democratic revolution, marching towards socialism, in the countries oppressed by imperialism.
All this shows that the principal contradiction in the world is that between imperialism and oppressed peoples, while both the contradictions between the proletariat and bourgeoisie and the inter-imperialist contradictions also sharpen. In the crisis it is increasingly clear that the revolution is the main trend.
In the current international situation the task of communists is to make revolution in the different countries, because the revolution is the only solution to the crisis, the only way out from imperialism and the only road to achieve the ultimate goal of the struggles of the proletarians and oppressed people.
This demands the strengthening and building of MLM communist parties in each country, as a new kind of communist party, as vanguard detachments of the proletariat and leading core of all the people, as a party fighting for the revolution.
In the countries oppressed by imperialism the perspective of people's war is advancing. In India, the people's war led by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) successfully withstands unprecedented attacks by the enemy and is able to expand and advance. The people's war in the Philippines led by the Communist Party of the Phillipines advances and establishes itself as an important part of the wave of world revolution. The people's war in Peru, initiated under the leadership of the Communist Party of Peru led by chairman Gonzalo remains an ideological and strategic beacon for the whole international communist movement. Though it faces setback due to the attacks of the enemy and from revisionists within the party, the struggle to overcome these hurdles persists. In Nepal ten years of people's war enriched the history and experience of the international communist movement and made significant advance towards the victory of the new democratic revolution. In recent years, however, a revisionist line that betrays the people’s war and the revolution emerged, headed by Prachanda and Bhattarai. The Maoists within the United Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) [UCPN(M)] must save the revolution and resume its march by revolting against that line and standing firm against centrist vacillations, inside and outside the party. In Turkey, the revolutionary struggles led by the Maoists are advancing in the pursuit of the people's war strategy suited to the conditions of this country, placed as it is amidst two international theatres, the European imperialist countries and the regimes ruled by the reactionaries in West Asia. In other countries of South Asia and Latin America, the people's war is in preparation for new beginnings and progresses. It is a task of communists around the world to put into the practice the proletarian internationalism, popularize and support the people’s wars and revolutionary struggles.
In the imperialist countries, electoralism, parliamentarism and political and union reformism are increasingly in crisis and, through this, revisionism is bankrupt. The need of a revolutionary organization and a revolutionary strategy to overthrow the bourgeoisie and seize the power is increasingly advancing and strengthening in the workers and people's movements.. The idea that as long as the proletarians are not in power it is an illusion to think that their lot will improve
is growing. The workers' struggles and the uprisings of proletarians and young people must coordinate and grow within a perspective of overthrowing the governments and states of the imperialist bourgeoisie, for the seizure of power by the proletariat.
In order to transform these needs into reality, these movements into revolution, we need to build MLM communist parties, in the fire of class struggle and in close link with the masses, for the proletarian revolution, with the MLM strategy of the revolutionary war culminating with the insurrection, adapted to each country according to the concrete conditions.
In all countries

we need communist parties based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, able to lead the class struggle in all fields and aimed at seizing the political power. In each country the Maoist communists strive to answer this need for a scientific and determined leadership for the class struggle, by fighting all kinds of revisionist and reformist, or dogmatist and extremist deviations, in all their forms.
Our class can rely on the huge amount of experience through 140 years of struggles and revolutions, from the birth of the glorious Paris Commune through the peaks of the October Revolution, the Chinese revolution and the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. We must learn from both our victories and defeats, from our correctness as well as from our mistakes.
Always in their entire history, the communists have built, participated and counted on an international organization of the proletariat and the oppressed masses. Without the First, the Second and Third International, the communist movement would not have spread to every corner of the world, neither would it have achieved its great victories, and would not have learned the lessons from its temporary defeats.
The battle of Mao Tsetung was an international battle that paved the way to the revival of communist parties after the establishment of Kruschevite revisionism in the international communist movement.
After Mao's death and the end of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, the formation of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) has allowed the Marxist-Leninist-Maoists in the world to begin to unite on an international scale, to resume the march towards a new Communist International.
Today, facing the crisis and the collapse of the RIM, we must rebuild the international organization of MLM parties and organizations on the basis of the positive and negative experiences of the RIM. The current situation presents the need to unite in this new organization all the MLM parties and organizations, inside and outside the RIM, for a political and organizational leap. This is necessary to put the communist movement at the height of the class struggle in the new century. Thus the needs of the proletariat and the oppressed masses, facing the impact of the crisis of imperialism, can be met.

The new international organization must unite in its ranks the genuine MLM parties and organizations that exist and operate in the class struggle, that transform the revolutionary theory into revolutionary practice, that are able to be an advanced and integrant part of the proletariat and the oppressed masses, getting rid of all the old and new waste, not only of revisionism but also of the petty bourgeois revolutionaries and the self-referring "virtualism".
To build this new international organization we must break with revisionism in all its aspects and particularly with those that have led to the current crisis and collapse of the RIM, namely the post-MLM 'new synthesis' of Bob Avakian in the Revolutionary Communist Party,US and the revisionist line established by Prachanda/Bhattarai in the UCPN(M).
The new international organization should have an executive centre, whose internal life must correspond to the stage and methods shared by the political parties and forces that give life to this organization, particularly taking lesson from the positive and negative experiences of the CoRim.

The international organization of MLM communists is and should be the core of a front, of an international anti-imperialist alliance of the proletarians and oppressed peoples.
It is this that will allow the MLM communist parties to establish and develop Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, realize a new unity of the international communist movement, place it at the van of worldwide people’s struggles and fully unleash and realize the potential new wave of world revolution.
Imperialism has no future! The future belongs to communism!

resolution N° 2 - Special Meeting of parties of RIM for International Conference of mlm Parties and Organisations of the world - May first 2012

The devastations of imperialist globalisation, wars of aggression and the devastating economic crisis of the imperialist system and its impact on proletarians and the broad masses have awakened worldwide a wave of struggles and revolts.
In this context a potential new wave of the world proletarian revolution develops and emerges, with the people's wars led by Maoist parties as its reference points and strategic anchor. The realisation of this potential ultimately depends on how successful the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties are in fulfilling their revolutionary tasks at national and international level. The pooling of their understanding and experience and the development of their capacity to take a united revolutionary message to the rebellious masses all over the world, have decisive importance. Unfortunately there has been a lag in this matter. This is severely compounded by the crisis in the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM), which is now defunct.
In this situation steps need to be taken to work for the building of an effective international MLM organization that can aid the fulfilment of revolutionary tasks and take the collective voice of the Maoists to the proletariat and struggling peoples. Therefore, we should move towards holding a new conference of the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties and organizations throughout the world. This conference should take up the task of building an international organization based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism.
It is appropriate that this task should be informed by the positive and negative experiences of RIM, given its experience in building and functioning as an international organisation during its nearly three decades of existence. As part of the work for the conference and the building of an international organization we need a summation worked out by all the parties and organization which has been part of this experience. Here we put forward some preliminary views.

  1. Following Mao Zedong’s death in 1976, the Chinese revisionists seized political power through a military coup d’état, thus causing the Communist Party of China (CPC) to degenerate into a revisionist party––overthrowing proletarian political power, bringing down socialism, and transforming revolutionary China into reactionary China. Moreover, the emergence of the Hoxhaite revisionist line in the Party of Labour of Albania, influenced a certain number of communist parties and organizations throughout the world, and ended up producing a serious assault on the international communist movement.
Despite this context of defeat, some Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations, that did not follow either the Chinese or Hoxhaite variants of revisionism, though few in number, held the first international conference of Marxist-Leninist parties and organizations in 1980 and passed a Joint Communiqué, A Call to the Proletariat and the Oppressed Peoples of the World. Although this conference did not result in the creation of a stable international organization it prepared the ground for a second international conference in 1984.
The formation of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) in this second conference of 1984 was a positive international, theoretical and practical endeavour that responded to the ideological, political and organizational needs and necessities of the international communist movement in the circumstances of a period defined by the crisis that had engulfed the communist movement following the defeat of the Chinese revolution.
The Declaration of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement that was passed at this conference - on the basis of Marxism-Leninism- Maoism (Mao Zedong Thought as it was then termed) and a principled opposition to the modern Russian and Chinese revisionism (as well as the Hoxhaite dogmato-revisionism) - provided a basic ideological-political framework for the foundation of the movement .
  1. In its past three decades of struggles the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement, since it was based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, achieved important theoretical and practical gains that were principled and worthy of further development. The documents passed in the international conferences and the expanded meetings of RIM (like the Declaration of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement, Long Live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, and the Millennium Resolution), despite some of their deficiencies and shortcomings, were all important theoretical contributions to the advancement of the Movement, as part of the international communist movement. The internationalist support to the people’s war in Peru and PCP, including the historical campaign in defence of Dr: Abimael Guzman, the contribution and support for the start and continuation of the people’s war in Nepal for its ten years, the publishing of the journal A World To Win in several languages that allowed to make known ideological and political understandings and analysis of the Movement and its parties and organizations in different countries, and statements issued have been notable features of the role played by the RIM in the international communist movement.
  2. The founding conference of the RIM had recognised the necessity of building a new communist international of a new type. To realize this, the Declaration of the RIM correctly identified the twin tasks of evolving ‘a general line and a correct and viable organisational form, conforming to the complex reality of the present-day world and the challenges it poses.’
  3. The interim committee – conceived as an embryonic political center - was formed with the task of working for the process of furthering the ideological, political and organisational unity of communists, including the preparation of a draft proposal for a general line for the communist movement. But this task was not fulfilled by the Corim and the RIM could not reach this goal.
  4. In the experience of RIM, the existence of such a center, formed for enabling a consistent and unified role for this Movement has given mixed results. There were some good results. There have also been serious lapses, hegemonic tendencies in functioning that negated the collectiveness that was the RIM, sorely undermined its unity, hindered the incorporation of more MLM parties and thus blocked the fulfilment of the tasks it had set for itself.
The new international organization should have an executive centre, whose internal life and methods correspond to the stage and methods shared by the political parties and forces that give life to this organization. It should function with the competency and commitment to work within the framework of the decisions and agreements of the international organization as decided in its conferences and other meetings. As in all other matters, here too, the consistent defence, application and development of MLM and the fulfilment of their own internationalist tasks and obligations by the individual parties are the ultimate guarantee.
In spite of its positive aspects, our Movement could not fulfil the tasks it had taken up and entered a crisis. When revisionism of Bob Avakian’s post-MLM 'new synthesis' variety became dominant in the Revolutionary Communist Party-USA and of the Prachanda-Bhattarai variety became dominant in the United Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), not only did these parties deviate from the path of revolution and communism, but the destructive and disparaging effects of their counter-revolutionary lines negatively affected the parties and organizations within RIM, specifically the Committee of RIM (CoRIM), in an extensive and profound manner. These are the immediate ideological sources that have led to the current crisis and collapse of the RIM.
We propose the convening of an international conference in order reactivate and reorganize an international organization. We believe that this task must be jointly taken up with the involvement of the Maoist parties leading people’s wars, and all the Maoist forces, including those outside the RIM, so that the conference will benefit from their views and experiences. In order to achieve this aim a process of ideological, political debate must be carried out. As part of preparation for the conference and serving its aims, we will it necessary to organise a seminar on ‘Summation of Experiences of RIM, ICML, and other International Initiatives.’
Through this whole process the points of unity and differences can be identified and a relatively advanced platform can be arrived at, to become the basis of a new international unity concretised in a new international organisation. In the current circumstances, the execution of this revolutionary responsibility can demonstrate a practical expression of the internationalist communist slogan, “workers and oppressed peoples of the world unite.” It is this that will allow the MLM communist parties to establish and develop Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, realize a new unity of the international communist movement, place it at the van of worldwide people’s struggles and fully unleash and realize the potential new wave of world revolution.

May Day 2012 - To overcome the crisis of capitalism, proletarian revolution is the only solution!

“The conditions of bourgeois society are too narrow to comprise the wealth created by them. And how does the bourgeoisie get over these crises? On the one hand by enforced destruction of a mass of productive forces; on the other, by the conquest of new markets, and by the more thorough exploitation of the old ones. That is to say, by paving the way for more extensive and more destructive crises, and by diminishing the means whereby crises are prevented.
The weapons with which the bourgeoisie felled feudalism to the ground are now turned against the bourgeoisie itself.
But not only has the bourgeoisie forged the weapons that bring death to itself; it has also called into existence the men who are to wield those weapons — the modern working class — the proletarians.”
Marx & Engels, Manifesto of the Communist Party, 1847

165 years after its writing, this quote remains relevant. It allows us to understand the situation in which the proletariat and the broad popular masses in all countries find themselves, regardless of who leads the government: they live under a concealed dictatorship, be it a bourgeois democratic or a brutal one.

The imperialist bourgeoisie is looking for the maximum rate of profit; it is using the crisis as a pretext to achieve this objective by restructuring the system of production. Within this, the ruling classes in the oppressed countries try to maintain and possibly increase their share in the surplus. Such restructuring is affecting all countries; for the working class and the masses, it means the delocalization of large industries: plant closings, wage cuts, unemployment, debt, impoverishment, etc. But in the places where the new plants are to be opened, restructuring means land grabs, expropriation of local farmers, frenzied exploitation, poverty wages, destruction of the environment, etc.

The ruling classes use the state apparatus to suppress the proletariat’s struggles and prevent them and the masses from revolting and organizing for the revolution.
Everywhere, the State is more and more becoming a police state that brings the population under surveillance and repression.

Whether it is the “left” or right, no segment of the bourgeoisie has the capacity to solve the crisis. The persistence of the crisis prepares the ground for fascism; fascism is advancing in disguise. It is building step by step through populist demagogy, relying on the economic crisis. In due time, it will show its true colors by aggressively defending the interests of finance capital. Meanwhile, competition between the different monopolist blocks raises the question of redivision of markets and therefore suggests new wars are on the horizon.

The class nature of the state is the central issue. The form it takes is only circumstantial. The primary purpose of the state is to serve the interests of the ruling class, that is to say, those of the imperialist bourgeoisie and/or of the comprador-bureaucrat bourgeoisie and landlords in the oppressed nations —which is a tiny minority compared to the vast majority of men, women and children who are facing exploitation worldwide. Given the crisis, this is becoming clearer to the masses. The central task of any revolution is to radically destroy the state apparatus and, thereafter, to build on its ruins a new and radically different state, with the objective of building socialism as a means of transition to communism. In other words, revolution is the only answer to the crisis!

Today, the proletariat and the masses are struggling and rebelling in many countries. These rebellions are expressed in different and varying ways: through general strikes, by fighting against high prices, against layoffs, for the right to work, against the crushing of militant trade unions, for the right to land, to protect the environment, through occupation of housing and empty land, youth rebellions against police violence and a life without work and without furure, struggles of women, etc.

In the Arab countries, after the uprisings that lacked a revolutionary leadership, the ruling classes and imperialism are regaining control of the situation in the name of “democracy;” they are enforcing the same rule of exploitation against the people by opposing the continuation of the revolutionary process. The protest movement’s focus is being diverted by imperialist interventions, by reactionary forces, by secular or religious reformists crushed bloodily.
In the Arab oppressed countries, as well as in all the colonial and semi-colonial countries, it has become more and more important to develop the New Democratic Revolution, as part of the socialist revolution.

In the imperialist countries, the “Occupy” movement is reflecting the massive discontent of the people, but it does not sufficiently challenge the system in its entirety.
These proletarian struggles and rebellions are not revolutionary in and of themselves but they are a first step in the realization by the masses of the necessity of revolution. However it is important to unmask the path and illusions of a peaceful change, alternation, deceitful elections.

Today’s communists (the Maoists) must participate in and gradually take the lead of those struggles. They must build the revolutionary force of the proletariat at the ideological, political and organizational levels, and especially the three essential tools of revolution: a Maoist Communist Party, a revolutionary United Front, and an Armed Force, according to the particular situation.

We must struggle against reformists, revisionists and opportunists who lead the protest struggles with a conciliatory spirit in the existing trade unions and mass organizations; they only offer “solutions” within the current capitalist and imperialist system, spreading the illusion among the masses that the electoral and peaceful path may be a solution for the proletariat and the masses to overcome the crisis. They are an obstacle to the expansion of class struggle and the organization of the working class and the masses for revolution.
Meanwhile, the reactionaries are using differences of origin, religion and racism to divide the proletariat, the working class and the popular masses, as a trick to preserve their power.

Everywhere we must popularize and support the people’s wars currently being waged as spearhead of the fight against the crisis of imperialism.
Led by the CPI (Maoist), the People’s War in India is successfully resisting attacks from the enemy and is managing to expand and grow. The People’s War is also unfolding in the Philippines under the leadership of the Communist Party of the Philippines, which upholds Maoism. In Peru, it is continuing despite the action from a liquidationist current. In Turkey, the revolutionary struggle led by the Maoists is advancing in accordance with the people’s war strategy. In other countries, new initiatives and advances are in preparation.

We must fight in a situation of uneven development to end the capitalist system over the whole world and build a new world free from exploitation, from peoples’ oppression and deadly wars, for a socialist and communist world.

We must work to rebuild the international organization of communists, based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism; we must apply MLM to the concrete reality of today, to jointly develop the struggle for revolution and establishing a Communist International of a new type.

Long Live Internationalist May Day!
Long Live Proletarian Internationalism!

la revolución proletaria es la única solución !

"Las condiciones de la sociedad burguesa son demasiado estrechas para contener las riquezas creadas por ellos. ¿Y cómo la burguesía a superar estas crisis? Por un lado, por la destrucción obligada de una masa de fuerzas productivas y, por otro, por la conquista de nuevos mercados, y por la explotación más intensa de los antiguos. Es decir, al allanar el camino para las crisis más extensas y más violentas, y disminuyendo los medios de prevenirlas.
Las armas con las que la burguesía para derribar al feudalismo se vuelven ahora contra la propia burguesía.
Pero no sólo la burguesía ha forjado las armas que deben darle muerte, sino que también ha llamado a la existencia de los hombres que empuñarán esas armas: los obreros modernos - los proletarios”.
Marx y Engels, Manifiesto del Partido Comunista de 1847

165 años después de su escrito, esta cita sigue siendo pertinente. Esto nos permite entender la situación en la que el proletariado y las amplias masas populares de todos los países se encuentran, sin importar quién encabeza el gobierno: que vivir bajo una dictadura encubierta, ya sea una democracia burguesa o brutal.

La burguesía imperialista está buscando la máxima tasa de ganancia, está utilizando la crisis como pretexto para alcanzar este objetivo mediante la reestructuración del sistema de producción. Dentro de esto, las clases dominantes de los países oprimidos tratan de mantener y posiblemente incrementar su participación en el excedente. Estas reestructuraciones estan afectando a todos los países, y ahi onde las grandes industrias son deslolcalizadas para la clase obrera y las masas significan: el cierre de plantas, recortes salariales, el desempleo, deuda, empobrecimiento, etc.; pero en los lugares donde las nuevas plantas van a ser abiertas, la reestructuración significa la apropiación de tierras, la expropiación de los agricultores locales, la explotación frenética, los salarios de pobreza, la destrucción del medio ambiente, etc

Las clases dominantes utilizan el aparato del Estado para reprimir las luchas y conjurar que el proletariado y las masas pasen a la revuelta y se organicen para la revolución.
En todas partes, el Estado es cada vez más convertirse en un estado policial que lleva a la población bajo la vigilancia y la represión.

Ya se trate de la "izquierda" o derecha, ningún segmento de la burguesía tiene la capacidad para resolver la crisis. La persistencia de la crisis prepara el terreno para el fascismo, el fascismo está avanzando encubierto. Se está construyendo paso a paso a través de la demagogia populista, apoyándose en la crisis económica para avanzar. A su debido tiempo, mostrará sus verdaderos colores y defenderá de la manera mas agresiva los intereses del capital financiero. Además, la competencia entre los bloques monopólicos diferentes plantea la cuestión de la redistribución de los mercados y por lo tanto, sugiere nuevas guerras en el horizonte.

La naturaleza de clase del Estado es el tema central. La forma que adopta es sólo circunstancial. El propósito primordial del Estado es servir a los intereses de la clase dominante, es decir, los de la burguesía imperialista y / o de la burguesía compradora-burocrática y los terratenientes en las naciones oprimidas, que es una pequeña minoría en comparación con el gran mayoría de los hombres, mujeres y niños que se enfrentan en todo el mundo la explotación. Ante la crisis, esto se hace más clara para las masas. La tarea central de toda revolución es destruir radicalmente el aparato del Estado y, posteriormente, para construir sobre sus ruinas un estado nuevo y radicalmente diferente, con el objetivo de construir el socialismo como una forma de transición al comunismo. En otras palabras, la revolución es la única respuesta a la crisis!

Hoy en día, el proletariado y las masas están luchando y rebelándose en muchos países. Estas rebeliones se expresan de diferentes maneras y diferentes formas: a través de huelgas generales, luchando contra los altos precios, contra los despidos, por el derecho al trabajo, contra el aplastamiento de los sindicatos militantes, por el derecho a la tierra, para proteger el medio ambiente, a través de la ocupación de la tierra y las viviendas vacías, rebeliones de los jóvenes contra la violencia policial y una vida sin trabajo y sin futuro, las luchas de las mujeres, etc.
En los países árabes, después de los levantamientos que carecían de una dirección revolucionaria, las clases dominantes y el imperialismo están recuperando el control de la situación en el nombre de la "democracia", ellos están aplicando la misma regla de explotación contra el pueblo al oponerse a la continuación del proceso revolucionario. El movimiento de protesta ha sido sea desviado por las intervenciones imperialistas, por las fuerzas reaccionarias, los reformistas seculares o religiosos sea aplastado sangrientamente.
En los países oprimidos árabes, así como en todos los países coloniales y semi-coloniales, se ha convertido cada vez más importante el desarrollo de la Revolución de Nueva Democracia, como parte de la revolución socialista.

En los países imperialistas, los movimientos de los indignados y el “Ocuppy” reflejan el descontento masivo de la gente, pero no lo suficiente para desafiar al sistema en su totalidad.
Estas luchas proletarias y rebeliones no son revolucionarias en sí mismas sino que son un primer paso en la realización de las masas de la necesidad de la revolución. Sin embargo, es importante desenmascarar el camino y las ilusiones de un cambio pacífico, la alternancia, las elecciones fraudulentas.
Los comunistas de hoy (los maoístas) deben participar en y poco a poco tomar un papel de liderazgo de esas luchas, construyendo la fuerza revolucionaria del proletariado a nivel ideológico, político y organizativo, es decire las tres herramientas esenciales de la revolución: el Partido Comunista Maoísta, el Frente Unido revolucionario, y una Fuerza Armada, de acuerdo a la situación específica.
Tenemos que luchar contra los reformistas, revisionistas y oportunistas que conducen luchas y demandas con un espíritu conciliador en los sindicatos y las organizaciones de masas existentes, que sólo ofrecen "soluciones" dentro del actual sistema capitalista e imperialista, creando la ilusión en las masas que los procesos electorales y el camino de la paz puede ser una solución para el proletariado y las masas para superar la crisis. Ellos son un obstáculo para el desarrollo de la lucha de clases y la organización de la clase obrera y las masas para la revolución.
Del lado del poder, los reaccionarios utilizan las diferencias de origen, la religión y el racismo para dividir al proletariado, la clase obrera y las masas populares y para conservar su poder.

En todas partes hay que divulgar y apoyar a las guerras populares  como punta de lanza de la lucha contra la crisis del imperialismo.
Liderados por el PCI (Maoísta), la guerra popular en la India resiste con éxito los poderosos ataques del enemigo y está logrando expandirse y crecer. La guerra popular se desarrolla en las Filipinas bajo la dirección del Partido Comunista de Filipinas, que se refiere al maoísmo. En el Perú, se continúa a pesar de la acción de la actual corriente liquidacionista. En Turquía, la lucha revolucionaria dirigida por los maoístas está avanzando de acuerdo con la estrategia de la guerra popular. En otros países está en preparación, para nuevas iniciativas y avances.

Tenemos que luchar en una situación de desarrollo desigual para poner fin al sistema capitalista en todo el mundo y construir un nuevo mundo libre de la explotación, la opresión de los pueblos y las guerras mortales, por un mundo socialista y comunista.

Debemos trabajar para reconstruir la organización internacional de los comunistas del mundo, basado en el marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo, debemos aplicar marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo a la realidad concreta de hoy, para desarrollar conjuntamente la lucha por la revolución y marchar a una Internacional Comunista de nuevo tipo.

¡Viva el Primero de Mayo Internacionalista!
¡Viva el internacionalismo proletario!

1er mai 2012 – Pour sortir de la crise du capitalisme la révolution prolétarienne est la seule solution !

«Le système bourgeois est devenu trop étroit pour contenir les richesses créées dans son sein. Comment la bourgeoisie surmonte-t-elle ces crises ? D’un côté, en détruisant par la violence une masse de forces productives ; de l’autre, en conquérant de nouveaux marchés et en exploitant plus à fond les anciens. À quoi cela aboutit-il ? À préparer des crises plus générales et plus formidables et à diminuer les moyens de les prévenir. Les armes dont la bourgeoisie s’est servie pour abattre la féodalité se retournent aujourd’hui contre la bourgeoisie elle-même.
Mais la bourgeoisie n’a pas seulement forgé les armes qui la mettront à mort; elle a produit aussi les hommes qui manieront ces armes, les ouvriers modernes, les prolétaires.»
Karl Marx et Friedrich Engels, Manifeste du Parti Communiste, 1847

Cent soixante-cinq ans après sa première publication, cette citation prend tout son sens aujourd’hui. Elle nous permet de comprendre la situation dans laquelle se trouvent le prolétariat et plus largement les couches populaires dans tous les pays, quel que soit le gouvernement, sous une dictature dissimulée, une démocratie bourgeoise ou une dictature brutale.
La bourgeoisie impérialiste recherche le taux de profit maximum et se sert de la crise pour restructurer l’appareil de production à cette fin. Dans ce cadre, les classes dominantes des pays dominés essaient de maintenir, voire de s’accaparer une plus grande part de ce surplus. Ces restructurations touchent tous les pays et signifient pour la classe ouvrière et les masses populaires d’où sont délocalisées les industries: fermetures d’usines, baisse des salaires, chômage, surendettement, misère, appauvrissement, etc. Mais là où sont implantées les nouvelles usines, cette restructuration signifie: accaparement des terres, expropriation des paysans locaux, exploitation forcenée, salaires de misère, destruction de l’environnement, etc.
Les classes dominantes utilisent l’appareil d’État pour réprimer les luttes et empêcher le prolétariat et les masses populaires de se révolter et de s’organiser pour la révolution. Partout l’État est de plus en plus un État policier, mettant la population sous surveillance, fichée, réprimée. Que ce soit la «gauche» ou la droite, aucune frange de la bourgeoisie n’est capable de résoudre la crise. La persistance de la crise creuse le lit du fascisme, qui avance masqué et se construit pas à pas avec force démagogie populiste, s’appuyant sur la crise économique pour progresser. Le moment venu, il montrera son vrai visage et défendra de la manière la plus agressive les intérêts du capital financier. En attendant, la concurrence entre les divers blocs monopolistes pose la question du repartage des marchés et évoque donc de nouvelles guerres.
La nature de classe de l’État est la question centrale. La forme qu’il revêt n’est qu’une question circonstancielle. Le but premier de l’État est de servir les intérêts de la classe dominante, c’est-à-dire aujourd’hui de la bourgeoisie impérialiste, ainsi que la bourgeoisie compradore et bureaucratique et les féodaux dans les pays dominés – autrement dit, ceux d’une infime minorité par rapport à l’immense majorité d’hommes, de femmes et d’enfants exploités à travers le monde. Avec la crise, ce rôle apparaît de plus en plus clairement aux yeux des masses. La question centrale de toute révolution est donc de détruire «de fond en comble» l’appareil d’État et, par la suite, de construire sur ses ruines un nouvel État, radicalement différent, dont l’objectif est la construction du socialisme en direction du communisme. En d’autres mots, la seule réponse à la crise est la révolution!
Aujourd’hui, le prolétariat et les masses populaires luttent et se révoltent dans plusieurs pays du monde. Cette révolte s’exprime de diverses manières et prend différentes formes: grèves générales, lutte contre la vie chère, contre les licenciements, pour l’emploi, contre l’écrasement des syndicats militants, pur le droit à la terre, pour la défense de l’environnement, par l’occupation de logements vides et de terres, les révoltes des jeunes contre les violences policières et une vie sans travail et sans avenir, les luttes des femmes, etc.
Dans les pays arabes, après les révoltes qui ont manqué d’une direction révolutionnaire, les classes dominantes et l’impérialisme, au nom de la «démocratie», reprennent le contrôle de la situation; elles imposent le même régime d’exploitation du peuple et s’opposent à la poursuite du processus révolutionnaire. La contestation est soit détournée par les interventions impérialistes, les forces réactionnaires, les réformistes laïcs ou religieux, ou réprimée dans le sang.
Dans les pays opprimés du monde Arabe ainsi que dans tous les pays coloniaux et semi-coloniaux, devient plus que jamais important développer de la révolution de démocratie nouvelle, comme partie intégrante de la révolution socialiste.
Dans les pays impérialistes, les mouvements «Occupy» et des indignés reflètent le ras-le-bol massif de la population, mais ils ne remettent pas en cause le système jusqu’à le détruire. Ces luttes prolétariennes, ces révoltes, ne sont pas révolutionnaires en elles-mêmes, mais elles constituent un premier pas dans l’avancement de la conscience des masses quant à la nécessité de la révolution. Néanmoins, il demeure important de démasquer les illusions de la voie pacifique, de l’alternance et des élections truquées.
Les communistes d’aujourd’hui, les maoïstes, doivent participer et prendre progressivement la tête de ces luttes. Ils doivent construire la force révolutionnaire du prolétariat sur les plans idéologique, politique et organisationnel, c’est-à-dire les trois instruments indispensables pour développer la révolution : le parti communiste maoïste, le front uni révolutionnaire et la Force Armée, selon les conditions spécifiques.
Il faut lutter contre les réformistes, les révisionnistes et les opportunistes qui mènent les luttes et revendications dans un esprit conciliateur dans les syndicats et les organisations de masse existantes et qui ne proposent que des «solutions» dans le cadre du système capitaliste et impérialiste, semant l’illusion parmi les masses que la voie électorale et pacifique puisse être une solution pour les prolétaires et les masses populaires pour sortir de la crise. Ils se posent comme obstacle au développement de la lutte de classe, à l’organisation de la classe ouvrière et des masses populaires pour la révolution.
Pendant ce temps, les réactionnaires utilisent les différences d’origine, de religion et le racisme pour diviser le prolétariat, la classe ouvrière et les masses populaires, afin de se maintenir au pouvoir.
Partout dans le monde, il faut faire connaître et soutenir les guerres populaires comme pointe avancée de la lutte contre l’impérialisme en crise.
La guerre populaire en Inde dirigée par le PCI (maoïste) résiste avec succès aux attaques de l’ennemi et parvient à s’étendre et à progresser. La guerre populaire se développe aux Philippines sous la direction du Parti communiste des Philippines, qui se réclame du maoïsme. Au Pérou, elle se poursuit malgré le courant liquidateur. En Turquie, le combat révolutionnaire dirigé par les maoïstes avance, conformément à la stratégie de la guerre populaire. Dans d’autres pays, on se prépare à de nouvelles initiatives et de nouvelles avancées.
Il faut lutter dans un processus de développement inégal pour en finir avec le système capitaliste sur la terre entière et construire un monde nouveau libéré de l’exploitation, de l’oppression des peuples, des guerres meurtrières, pour un monde socialiste et communiste.
Il faut travailler à reconstruire l’organisation internationale des communistes, sur la base du marxisme-léninisme-maoïsme appliqué à la réalité concrète d’aujourd’hui, pour développer ensemble la lutte pour la révolution et établir une Internationale Communiste de type nouveau.
Vive le 1er Mai Internationaliste !
Vive l’internationalisme prolétarien !
