8 - The importance of Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution Successes – Lessons CC, CPI (Maoist) February 26th, 2017

(On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution of China)

Great proletarian Cultural Revolution – Art and Literature and PLA
Many new creative issues representing the proletariat were introduced in the field of art and literature. Music, theatre, ballet, painting, short stories and poetry developed in a big scale in multimedia with the call of Cultural Revolution to criticize Confucius, bourgeois ideology, culture, customs and habits. They served to build Socialism. This new cultural work depended on the many great experiences of workers and peasants and the great effort for collective interests.
People were allowed to propagate widely through wall magazines during the Cultural Revolution. Thousands and lakhs of people mobilized to conduct great debates. They struggled against the reactionary ideology. They punished the corrupt officers. They fought for the freedom of press and for democratic rights. The masses enjoyed four freedoms - the right to speak, to express their ideas, to participate in the great debate and to publish wall magazines. The People’s Liberation Army of China stood in support of the masses as a Revolutionary Democratic Army during the GPCR. The PLA obeyed the call of Mao that they have to be humble towards the masses regarding supporting the revolutionary line. PLA participated in production, in various constructions, in avoiding storms and floods, in digging canals, and helped, served the peasants and workers during earthquakes and in natural calamities. The differentiation of big and small positional status was removed in PLA. They provided MLM theoretical understanding to PLA as like they are giving to peasants and workers. PLA was given the consciousness to be more alert to prepare for any kind of sacrifices to protect the country.
In the leadership of the great Marxist teacher Mao, CPC built a society without considerable differences within three decades through Socialism. Many top level Chinese leaders like Mao and Chou En Lai worked hard for the masses of China and the world. But they took a salary equal to that of a Professor. They never accumulated private property in their life. The masses of China took such leaders as ideal, worked hard and transformed their motherland as a modern industrial country and the most advanced political and social system of free medicine and free education to each and everyone.
Especially genuine workers, peasants and soldiers became part of the government and governed. These worker, peasant and soldier government leaders worked together with the peasants and workers even after coming to high positions. The directive principle for these government officers is to serve the people. This is the true democracy. This is the government of the people, for the people and by the people. These peasant-worker government officers not only represented the interests of the peasants and workers in the government but they themselves were peasants and workers. They lived like peasants and workers.
On the whole, the GPCR is unique. It was an experiment that shook the world. It handed over a proper form and method for the world proletariat to advance in the Socialist path. Cultural Revolution became an effective force. It is because crores of masses mobilized under the CPC and proletarian  eadership and leapt into practice. The MLM revolutionary understanding of the Chinese masses made a severe impact. Though temporarily, Cultural Revolution continued severe class struggle and avoided  the restoration of bourgeois dictatorship. In the process of fighting against revisionism they fought  against capitalist roaders. They also ‘fought against self’ to fight revisionism. The Socialist consciousness among the masses made a great leap forward, in a way unprecedented in human history. Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution is an issue concerning world outlook. It is a theoretical weapon to prepare the masses to understand and transform the world with consciousness and thus to change themselves.
If we synthesize the experience of GPCR we understand that we cannot success the New Democratic Revolution in India in a casual manner, fearing difficulties or without sacrifices. We can make the Protracted People’s War a success only by continuing class struggle, by working with a spirit to deny death courageously and by depending on the revolutionary spirit and enthusiasm. We have to demonstrate great dynamism, revolutionary spirit and enthusiasm to strengthen proletarian dictatorship and to build Socialism also. As long as we have close relations with the broad masses, depend on them, maintain the same revolutionary enthusiasm and advance, work with the same courage in the revolutionary war for years together with the spirit of not caring death, we can advance towards our objective fast.

Philippines - against Trump/Duterte Alliance - demostration and clashes

Philippines : Violents affrontements pour la visite de Trump

La police a utilisé des canons à eau sur la manifestation de militants communistes, d’agriculteurs et d’étudiants, qui progressait sur l’avenue Taft, à environ 6 kilomètres du lieu où se réunissaient les dirigeants de l’Association des Nations de l’Asie du Sud-Est (ASEAN). Les affrontements ont alors commencé entre manifestants et policiers. Le chef du district de police de Manille a déclaré que six policiers avaient été blessés, tandis que les organisateurs du rassemblement ont déclaré que 10 manifestants avaient été blessés, dont deux ont été transportés à l’hôpital après avoir été frappés à la tête par la police.
Les manifestants ont crié des slogans anti-américains, exigeant que les forces américaines quittent les Philippines et que Washington cesse d’imposer des politiques économiques impérialistes dans le pays. Ils ont mis le feu à l’effigie de Trump de 4 mètres alors que le président américain devait rencontrer le président des Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte. Cette rencontre a dû être retardée. L’effigie sous la forme d’une croix gammée symbolisait le fascisme, la guerre et le pillage, a déclaré le Secrétaire général de Bayan, un des organisateurs des manifestations.

workers' struggle in Egipt


Egypte : Les ouvriers d’un sous-traitant de la France au tribunal

L’armée a racheté la société Al-Tersana, sous-traitant égyptien du groupe français de construction navale Naval Group (ex-DCNS) dans la fabrication des corvettes Gowind, en 2007 lors de la vague de privatisation de l’ère Moubarak. Depuis, les ouvriers doivent se conformer à une discipline de travail drastique. En mai 2016, les ouvriers ont réclamé une augmentation de salaire, une couverture médicale et des primes. La police militaire a été envoyée pour interdire l’accès du chantier aux 2000 salariés qui tous ont été suspendus. 26 ouvriers sont poursuivis par la justice militaire, dont 14 pour incitation à la grève (voir notre article). Le prononcé du verdict a fait l’objet de 19 reports consécutifs. Le dernier est arrivé à échéance le 14 novembre 2017. Le tribunal militaire a autorisé le 15 novembre 2016 la remise en liberté sous caution des ouvriers à condition qu’ils démissionnent.
Après le licenciement massif, la direction d’Al-Tersana avait confié les travaux à des conscrits de l’armée, mais, confrontée à leur manque de qualification ainsi qu’aux pressions du commanditaire français, l’entreprise a réintégré 60% des anciens ouvriers, sans satisfaire aucune de leurs revendications. Naval Group demandant d’accélérer le travail pour réaliser dans les temps contractuels la construction des trois corvettes, Al-Tersana a réorganisé le travail selon la formule des trois-huit et a recouru à la main-d’œuvre des cadets d’écoles militaires âgés de 17 à 18 ans pour un "salaire" mensuel de 24 euros. Le 21 mars 2017, 3 ouvriers ont été tués et 5 autres blessés sur le chantier à la suite d’une fuite de gaz.

Columbia - celebrating the October Revolution in the University of Antioquia

On occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Great Socialist October Revolution a group of student activists took the walls of Columbia’s oldest state-run University and sprayed several slogans. In their paintings they hold high the leaders, achievements and lessons to be drawn from the events in October 1917 and further celebrate the 1st country to become socialist.
In a statement published by the comrades of El Comunero following remarks are made in regards to that action:
“The almost 40 years (1917-1956) of building socialism leave great lessons to the peoples of the world that revolutionary students must study and apply to our reality, in struggle against all the slanders and lies of imperialism, opportunism and the bourgeois academy. Likewise, the fall of socialism in 1956 also gives us great lessons that the revolutionaries of the world must apply to prevent the bourgeoisie from once again succeeding in restoring capitalism where the people conquered power.
Finally, never in the history of humankind there has been a revolution that triumphed at the first attempt; every revolutionary process has taken place through a long and protracted process of triumphs and defeats, advances and setbacks, successes and failures, a process that has been analyzed and synthesized with Marxism to prepare, forge and consolidate the final triumph.”

¡SALVO EL PODER TODO ES ILUSIÓN!
“La Revolución de Octubre no se puede considerar sólo una revolución circunscrita 'a un marco nacional'. Es, ante todo, una revolución de carácter internacional, de carácter mundial, pues representa un viraje radical en la historia de la humanidad, un viraje del viejo mundo, del mundo capitalista, al mundo nuevo, al mundo socialista.”

En esta celebración del centenario de la Gran Revolución Socialista de Octubre los Partidos y Organizaciones marxista-leninista-maoístas debemos elevar nuestro optimismo de clase al tope e impulsar con cada vez más iniciativa y energía las tareas que nos toca en esta Nueva Era que se abrió con el trueno de los cañones de los obreros y campesinos rusos dirigidos por el Partido bolchevique bajo la jefatura del gran Lenin. Nos toca hacer todo, en cada país sin excepción, para desarrollar la revolución, según corresponda al carácter de la misma, democrático o socialista, lo que implica centrar en la guerra popular, ya sea para preparar, iniciar y desarrollarla hasta la Conquista del Poder; lo cual nos plantea como primera demanda, en la gran mayoría de países, la constitución o reconstitución de los Partidos Comunistas.

Au Maroc, la répression du Hirak provoque un nouvel exode de migrants vers l’Espagne

De la place Mohammed-VI d’Al-Hoceima, où se sont concentrés les troubles de cette ville au sommet d’une falaise du nord du Maroc, un arc-en-ciel géant marque le ciel au-dessus de la Méditerranée. Mais la vie quotidienne des Amazighs (Berbères) dans cette région pauvre du Rif est moins colorée. Les officiers en tenue anti-émeute occupent la place, se méfiant de toute réunion à l’approche du 28 octobre, date anniversaire de la mort, en 2016, de Mouhcine Fikri.

Le poissonnier avait été broyé par un camion à ordures alors qu’il tentait de récupérer son espadon confisqué par la police. Sa mort a déclenché un soulèvement populaire qui s’est étendu à toute la région. La réponse du pouvoir marocain, face à son plus grand défi depuis le « printemps arabe » de 2011, a été d’arrêter les dirigeants du mouvement protestataire Hirak, d’emprisonner des journalistes et de sévir brutalement contre les manifestants.
Mais l’épisode a également entraîné un exode massif vers l’Europe de Rifains persécutés et de jeunes chômeurs. A l’été 2017, le nombre de réfugiés et de migrants ayant tenté la traversée vers l’Espagne a fortement augmenté. En août, près de 600 personnes ont été secourues au large de Tarifa en une seule journée.

7 - The importance of Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution Successes – Lessons CC, CPI (Maoist) February 26th, 2017

(On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution of China)

7

Before the CPC came to power women in China had a very limited political power in the Chinese society. Women could not choose spouse of their choice. Their parents (if they die, their brothers) would decide. After marriage they were under the control of their husbands (if they die, their sons). Women did not have right to property. Only fathers or husbands had this right. Men brought another woman as a keep as per their status. In old China rich old people frequently brought young women as keeps. Chinese writer Ba Jin explained this situation in his novel ‘Family’. In this novel an eighty year old
man buys a sixteen year old girl as a servant.
The official policy, especially the two declarations Mao issued with a far sighted view lent support to the active movement of women. These taught ‘Women must highlight Half of the sky’, ‘Situation changed, now men and women are equal’, ‘Women comrades can achieve whatever the men comrades achieve’.
The first law the Communist Party passed after coming to power was that regarding marriage. This law came into implementation on the 13th April, 1950. The government of the People’s Republic of China provided protection to women and children. It said that wife and husband are equal in marriage.
In a marriage there is one husband and one wife. Men were not allowed to get keeps. Women were provided the freedom to select their partners. In case of divorce court took care that the women and children are provided security.
The government of the People’s Republic of China not only passed this law but also took up a social movement through media and arts (plays, cinemas) in an unprecedented manner to raise the consciousness of the masses about it. With this new marriage law there was a considerable growth in the social and political status of the Chinese women. Freedom to women in Socialist China meant freedom to work outside their home without fear, freedom to participate in politics and class struggles, freedom of sex, means to disallow being considered as sex objects.
Chinese government also implemented equal wages for equal work in the public sector. Women in the public sector got equal wages. Government industries provided maternity leave for three months. This could be extended upto six months. There were facilities to take care of the children in the mother’s work places. Mothers were allotted time to feed their babies.
The Chinese government arranged women’s federation committees for the protection of women’s rights. During the Cultural Revolution every Chinese village, factory, school, government office had women’s federation committees. If the husband did not look after his wife properly, the women’s federation of the village organized women and took up with the husband and made him ask his wife an excuse. If the husband once again behaves in the same way, the women’s federation committee got down to work again. Women of urban areas complained to the women’s federation committee.
The committee took action on them on their behalf. Apart from the Chinese women’s federation committees there were woman representatives in the committees in all levels of the public sector. As per the laws and regulations of the government the exclusive necessities of women’s living had to be considered. Women had the right to change their work during their menstrual period. There was encouragement for socialization in the commune life. Thus women were liberated from the drudgery of house work. There was increased social security for the old and children.
The communist government took the question of women’s rights in a serious manner. As a part of this it paid attention to children, family and the welfare of all the nationalities and the country. If women’s rights are not protected the influence would not be limited to women alone. Children would fall in difficulty and the families too would fall in difficulty. The Communist government eliminated social evils like the habit of consuming narcotics, prostitution, illegal transport of women and children, organized crimes and loot and other such things in a very efficient manner. Due to the empowerment of women they became part of the forces of productivity of the Chinese society. This helped to provide equal participation in social and political life for women. In 1952 the average life time of a human being in China was 35 years. By 1976, in a period of less than thirty years it went up to 69 years, two times the earlier. In India it was 50 years in 1976. This is 19 years lesser to that of China.
During the Cultural Revolution many women came to top positions. There was a Polit Bureau member in the CC. There was a Minister in the government. They developed to the position of serving the Army, Navy, Air force, government machinery, industries, agriculture, communication, transport, health and other ordinary services. Women did all kinds of works that men did. Many women achieved self-reliance. Equal wages for equal work was implemented. Transformation began in family relations with women being made part of production, with the eradication of the ideology of family centeredness and with a change in the role of women as housewives.
Due to the GPCR the revolutionaries across the world were equipped with a new understanding about patriarchy in practice. Especially there was development in the women’s fight against all kinds of suppression, in working as political activists and in conducting their responsibilities as leaders of revolutionary organisations. This development in theory and practice helps to break all kinds of shackles regarding women’s oppression in the Socialist societies in future.

Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution – Medical field
Decentralized medical and health policy was introduced in a creative manner in the medical field. The wrong understanding attributing specialty to this field was removed and ‘barefoot doctor’ policy was developed. Thousands and thousands of ‘barefoot doctors’ came forward during the GPCR and became world famous. By 1976 there were 15 lakhs of doctors in the rural area. There was considerable decrease in diseases due to general cleanliness programs and nutritious food. In this method that was developed in the GPCR, doctors for primary health care of the masses were prepared with training of less duration instead of the idealist Western medical method of seven to fifteen years of study of medical sciences. They studied, researched and explored the medical and health care developed from the experience of masses of various countries in the world for thousands of years and from the specific experience of the Chinese masses. This method was not only adopted in the medical field but to all the fields of life.
Knowledge develops from creative synthesis of the labour, experience and many experiments of the broad masses for a long time. This is the technical knowledge of the masses. The health policy that tribals and peasants developed from the trees, leaves, roots and other herbs was creatively implemented in the medical field. China is a very old peasant country and so they have a vast knowledge about these things. The native raw material was applied scientifically from which the widely spread method of Acupuncture developed. During GPCR doctors left the cities and went to villages to serve the masses.

Italy - la strage delle nigeriane - imperialismo e governi imperialisti assassini! mettere fine all'orrore senza fine di questo sistema - a cura mfpr italy


Nelle bare ci sono 24 cadaveri ancora senza nome. L'unico segno di riconoscimento è un cartellino con un numero progressivo. Sette giorni sono trascorsi, dalla strage delle ragazze nel Mediterraneo, e i contorni del dramma delle giovanissime nigeriane inghiottite dal mare durante la traversata dalla Libia all'Italia si fanno più nitidi.
Solo in due sono state riconosciute, nell'obitorio di Salerno, dal marito e dal fratello, che si sono sciolti in un pianto dignitoso, pur fra tanta disperazione. Le altre, dunque, si erano messe in viaggio da sole, oppure chi era insieme a loro non ce l'ha fatta. Dall'autopsia non sono emersi segni di violenza sulle salme sbarcate domenica scorsa a Salerno dalla nave militare spagnola Cantabria insieme a 401 migranti sopravvissuti a quattro diversi naufragi. In qualche caso però le cicatrici sui corpi c'erano eccome. Segni di frustate, probabilmente. Non recenti, però, ma risalenti nel tempo e non riconducibili al viaggio sul gommone affondato. Due aspettavano un bambino. Una da un mese e mezzo, l'altra da tre. Molte erano infibulate.
Sono tutte morte per annegamento, in un solo caso la vittima ha subito anche un'emorragia, verosimilmente a causa di una caduta. Per accertare l'età bisognerà aspettare altri esami, ma le prime verifiche hanno confermato che avevano fra i 15 e i 25 anni. Chi le ha viste, assicura che erano "ragazze bellissime", nonostante le sofferenze. E dovevano avere anche una grande voglia di vivere, se è vero che una di loro indossava una maglietta colorata con scritto "I'm super happy", sono super felice.
"Mi vergogno che, nel 2017, ci siano ancora donne trattate in questo modo e persone costrette a viaggi allucinanti per sfuggire alla guerra e alla violenza - dice il professor Antonello Crisci, che guida l'equipe medico legale - come italiano invece sono orgoglioso di appartenere a un popolo accogliente, in prima linea in operazioni umanitarie che hanno lo scopo di restituire dignità e giustizia a queste persone così sfortunate".
.. il giudice Emiliana Ascoli nell'ordinanza parla della "la gravità della situazione" che si è verificata in quei giorni nelle acque al largo del canale di Sicilia e "lo stato disumano con il quale i migranti erano stati costretti a viaggiare, così da perdere la vita".
Il giudice ricorda che risultano ancora dispersi dei diversi naufragi: "Una decina, fra i quali anche bambini, caduti in mare", e forse addirittura "abbandonati per scelta di coloro che guidavano la nave". . I migranti sono partiti da un porto vicino a Tripoli la notte fra giovedì 2 e venerdì 3 novembre. Uomini, donne e bambini sono stati caricati a bordo dopo essere stati privati "di ogni bene, senza cibo né acqua" e solo un giubbino. Per partire, hanno pagato mille dinari "a un agente libico".

«La strage delle ragazze nel Mediterraneo è un evento drammatico, faremo tutto quanto è nelle nostre possibilità per accertare la verità», dice a Repubblica il procuratore di Salerno Corrado Lembo. Sulla scrivania dell'esperto magistrato, affiancato dal procuratore aggiunto Luca Masini, c'è l'indagine aperta dopo lo sbarco di 375 migranti sopravvissuti ai naufragi avvenuti nelle acque al largo del Canale di Sicilia. In mare hanno perso la vita 26 giovanissime nigeriane, partite dalla costa libica e annegate durante la traversata. Erano a bordo di due diversi gommoni, tre su uno che trasportava circa 150 persone, le altre 23 su un diverso natante sul quale viaggiavano 87 migranti.
.... Dalle indagini è emerso che almeno altri dieci persone, fra le quali anche bambini, erano sulla stessa imbarcazione e risultano tuttora disperse in mare.

GALIZA: Documento do C.C. do PC-maoísta da Galiza "Sen Revolución Socialista non hai Soberania Nacional"


Sen Revolución Socialista non hai Soberanía Nacional.
Na actual situación, nos acontecementos no Estado español e na Catalunya, compre sinalar con claridade cal é a liña dos comunistas.
A cuestión das nacionalidades ou nacións oprimidas dentro do actual Estado español; Catalunya, Galiza, Euskal Herria e Canarias ten representado unha contradición histórica pendente da revolución democrática, vencellada agora intrinsecamente a Revolución Socialista no conxunto dos pobos da península Ibérica.
Polo mesmo, a nosa liña, baseándonos na posición leninista do Dereito de Autodeterminación dos pobos, esta é, a independencia dos mesmos, é apoiar a loita de liberación nacional, na procura que o proletariado asuma a dirección de ditos movementos, baseado nos tres instrumentos da revolución; o Partido proletario, a Fronte Única e o Exercito Popular. É moi importante a comprensión da necesidade deste ultimo pois sen Exercito Popular nada terá o pobo.

O desenvolvemento dunha Liña e un Programa correctos nesta cuestión é unha tarefa fundamental para a clase obreira pois que nesta cuestión son moitos os erros que se cometeron polas direccións oportunistas ou revisionistas no movemento comunista na península Ibérica.
Temos que denunciar enerxicamente ou chovinismo de grande nación españolista dos revisionistas do falso P”C”E / IU e dos social-traidores do PSOE, máis as actitudes vacilantes e cómplices co mesmo de Podemos e as súas siglas.
A liña histórica dos revisionistas e da pequena burguesía nacionalista foi véncellar o dereito de autodeterminación a unha cuestión legal, mesmo a un referendo no marco do actual estado burgués,(paradigma de Escocia, Quebec..) esta liña, representada na Catalunya por ERC, PdC ou Podem (na Galiza, o BNG e Mareias)  so conduce a frustración do movemento de liberación nacional é oculta que non pode hai Soberanía Nacional, sen Revolución Socialista.
A outra falsa liña vístese de “esquerda” e chama por “Independencia e Socialismo.” Realmente asemellase moito a anterior, pois non só non define o Socialismo como revolución proletaria (reformismo dentro do estado burgués ou da UE) se non mesmo agacha, que a independencia só se poderá conquerir destruíndo o poder da nación opresora pola loita revolucionaria e violenta da masas.
Agora ben, a pequena burguesía nas nacionalidades representa unha clase revolucionaria e patriótica, e a nosa organización debe saber traballar, entre o sector máis progresista da mesma, para poder por medio da unidade/loita dar unha dirección proletaria a seus prantexamentos, a vez que traballar por illar a súa ala dereita.
Consecuentes coas teses da Revolución Socialista temos que combater as erradas concepcións do análise colonial para estas nacionalidades (coa excepción de Canarias), pois as mesmas ignoran que ha realidade destas sociedades é, xa, dun capitalismo avanzado e polo mesmo, aínda que se poda considerar a loita de liberación nacional como unha tarefa da revolución democrática, é, hoxe, nestas circunstancias do desenvolvemento do imperialismo no Estado español parte intrínseca da Revolución Socialista.
Revolución Socialista que só pode significar a destrución do poder da oligarquía financeira e compradora e do seu vello Estado pola violencia revolucionaria, pola guerra popular.


Polo mesmo a nosa organización ten que traballar firmemente na construción concéntrica dos tres instrumentos da revolución; o Partido, A Fronte e o Exercito Popular. Preparando a organización para facer fronte, dun xeito vitorioso, a estas ineludibles necesidades históricas.
Seguir o exemplo luminoso da Grande Revolución Socialista de Outubro do que celebramos con xúbilo o seu centenario e baseándonos no marxismo-leninismo-maoísmo, tomando como principal o maoísmo, analizar as contradicións existentes na nosa sociedade e defender, dende o internacionalismo proletario, a xusta loita da liberación nacional dos pobos oprimidos, no Estado español, tal é a nosa tarefa nestes momentos no que ha crise do réxime da restauración borbónica do 78 afondase coa loita nacional en Catalunya.

6 - The importance of Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution Successes – Lessons CC, CPI (Maoist) February 26th, 2017

(On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution of China) 
                              6

Impact of Cultural Revolution on Industries and Agriculture

At the time of establishment of the People’s Republic of China, its industrial base was smaller than that of Belgium, a small country. Its gross industrial production was one fifth of that of Belgium. During Mao’s time Industrial production of China increased by 13.5 per cent per annum. The growth of industrialization in this period was much more than in any other country. It was above the industrial development in Germany, Japan and Soviet Union. During the Cultural Revolution workers rejected material incentives. They followed the policy of Mao – stick to revolution, develop production and political work is the life line of all the economic work. In the Third, Fourth and the Fifth Five Year Plans of this period, the Chinese government invested 316,642 billion Yuan for infrastructure. Industrial properties increased to 215,740 billion Yuan. By 1979, there were 355,000 industries. This was 2.25 fold when compared to 1965. These industries went under the government ownership all over the country. There were nearly 4,500 large and medium scale industries. Between 1967 and 1976, production in the oil sector increased by 18.6 per cent per annum. By 1978 the annual oil production reached 100 million tons. This was five times more than that of 1965. Growth rate of 9.2 per cent per annum continued in coal, chemicals and electricity during the ten years of Cultural Revolution. From 1965 to mid 1970 China invested 205 billion Yuan in the third line (public sector) industries. Steel Plants, Industries manufacturing machine equipment, Aeroplane manufacturing industries, Space programs and Electronic Plants were established in the Middle and the Western areas. By the end of 1970, the industrial properties of the third line reached one third of the total industrial properties of China. Industrial production increased 3.92 times. Industrial production in the Middle and the Western areas became strategically very important to the National Security of China as either a Nation or a Country. It improved the gross industrial growth of China. Production plans were formulated not for high profits but to fulfil the necessities of the society. Especially, dependence on foreign technology of the Soviet or the Western countries in the factories in the government sector was criticized. The Dauking oil fields of North East China were opened with the Chinese resources and engineering and work was initiated. They highlighted them as a national example for new methods of production and products that suit the conditions of China. This policy helped to protect the political independence of China. Mao emphasized self-reliance and also said technology should be imported if necessary. In 1972 Mao and Chou En Lai together accepted a scheme to import 26 foreign industrial plants and an investment of 5 billion dollars. With the construction of a big group of Oil and Chemical plants the production of fertilisers, chemicals and artificial textiles increased. In this period 13 big fertilizer factories were constructed. The production of these factories was equal to one fifth of the production in the Chinese chemical fertilizers. In 1970s, China constructed many small scale chemical fertilizer factories. By 1978 there were 1,534 small chemical fertilizer factories in China. These small fertilizer factories played an important role in the agricultural growth of the country. In 1960s and 1970s America and other Western countries spread ‘green revolution’ technical know how to backward countries like India, Mexico, Brazil, Philippines and others. The spread of ‘green revolution’ technology had a destructive impact on the agriculture in these backward countries. Chemical fertilisers, pesticides and heavy machinery enhanced agricultural production. But with the growth of production crop prices fell. Moreover, the price of productivity gradually went up. Many small peasants could not cope up with the ups and downs in the market. A large number of small peasants became bankrupt. They lost their lands. They had to migrate to the towns for livelihood. The emergence of large scale slums and excessive increase in homeless people in the backward countries is the consequence of the technical spread of ‘green revolution’ of the Western countries. This intensified the crisis in agriculture, rural areas and the peasantry by three times. It is difficult to assess the impact of this crisis now. China was the only country that could avoid this agrarian crisis. This was the result of its collective agricultural methods. Organized Chinese peasants developed indigenous agricultural (green) revolution in their own style. Chinese peasants had collective ownership on land. They distributed the results of agricultural (green) revolution technique equally. They avoided the destructive ill effects and thus benefited from it. The indigenous (selfreliant) agricultural revolutionary technique reduced the intensity of agricultural labour. In addition to this, it helped for the emergence of many rural agricultural industries. Due to the emergence of these rural agricultural industries the peasants had to leave their fields to participate in the industrial work. But they did not have to leave their villages. During the Cultural Revolution, the development of this agricultural revolutionary technique, the utilization of the locally made agricultural machinery and the emergence of rural industries increased the level of the living standards of Chinese farmers. Two contradictory slogans in agriculture – one was ‘Learn from Tachai’ of Mao and another ‘Learn from Tao Yuvan’ of Li Shao Chi stood as the symbols of two lines in agriculture. Tachai, which was in Shansi province an area full of stones and rocks with diminished fertility of land. A brigade of Tachai commune worked with the spirit of self-reliance. It removed rocks, built walls like partitions, dug the soil and levelled the land and turned the hills and the streams into fertile lands without support from the government. This change was possible because of the long term political education, through collective efforts and the firm struggle against individualism and the feeling of private property. Tachai stood first in implementing the new basis to develop the capacity to work of every member of the brigade in a year, in the place of applying work point system. This reflected in the collective consciousness, in the capacity to work and in leading others in the collective projects. Due to the direct material incentives, it left the aspect of how much productive capacity the brigade members could bring about. Tao Yuvan was a brigade formed in a commune in East Hopei plains. The natural conditions are favourable for large scale production and excess results. Li Shao Chi’s followers selected this brigade and provided special help with the feeling that they could gain considerable results through investment. But this brigade did less in a long time. It could not maintain the excess results gained initially. So it lost morale and political consciousness. When they faced difficulties the brigade members demanded the help of the government instead of organizing themselves to spend their whole power. The party cadres of Tao Yuvan gave importance to machines and techniques instead of humans and their consciousness thus being a negative example. The dependence on material incentives led to disunity and clashes among the peasantry. The difference between the ‘Tachai line’ and the ‘Tao Yuvan line’ was in essence that between ‘putting politics in command’ and ‘putting technique in command’. This reflects the main difference in the lines of Mao and Li Shao Chi. While Mao suggested that cooperation was important than mechanization, Li Shao Chi said the opposite. As Mao suggested, ‘keeping politics in command’ means one must depend on the poor and the middle peasantry to build Socialism. The forces of production in agriculture would develop depending on continuing revolution in the relations of production and consciousness. The meaning of ‘keeping technique in command’ of Li Shao Chi is to put bourgeois politics in command upon proletarian politics. His emphasis on technique dismisses class struggle and transformation of forces of production. It does not pay attention to develop forces of production and to raise the consciousness. It only strengthens bourgeois relations of production. Keeping technique in command is not an alternate line to the building of Socialism. On the contrary it is the way for capitalist restoration. This is an attempt to destroy the People’s Communes that are working as the organs of People’s power and as the units of production. It is an attempt to destroy the cooperative basis of land and other instruments of production. It is leaving the farmers on their own in production and market. It is weakening the most important worker-peasant unity in building Socialism and separating the close relation between agriculture and industry. Cultural Revolution united all the revolutionary forces in the rural area by overcoming narrow self interest in them through study, self-criticism and mutual criticism. It strengthened the ownership of these forces, their collective production and collective social services in the path of mutual unity. It defeated the conspiracies of bourgeois class forces.

for a new international conference of all parties and organisations in the world that must be promoved for the next year!

 “The flag of the October Revolution is invincible!”
- Mao Zedong
This year marks the Centenary of the October Revolution. Imperialists, reactionaries, reformists, and all kinds of opportunists are making efforts to delete, obscure, denigrate and sully this event, as they did last year with the 50th anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution.
They do so because they know that the great message coming from these events for the proletarians and the masses is more and more present.
To get rid of imperialism, capitalism, war, exploitation of the proletariat and oppression of peoples we must make the proletarian revolution!
The working class must tear off the political power from the ruling classes, establish its power, its state─the dictatorship of the proletariat─and construct socialism; it must develop and continue the revolution in each country and in the world to get rid of all the chains of imperialism and march towards communism world-wide.
The imperialist system shows to be what Lenin analysed and described in his great work “Imperialism highest stage of capitalism”: a rotten and decadent system.
Imperialism and its governments, at all latitudes, continue crossing a deep economic and financial, political and social crisis, and unload their crisis on the proletarians and the masses internally, and on the oppressed people and nations internationally.
Imperialism is economic war, war of aggression and looting for a new division of the world.
Imperialism is reaction and fascism. Imperialism is the last stage of capitalism and shows every day more the need to overthrow it.
That is why the message of Lenin and the October Revolution is more alive than ever!
In the US, under the strongest imperialism, Trump’s victory reflects the crisis of Yankee imperialism and its attempt to get out of that accentuating the economic war, the military rule, the control on geopolitical strategic regions, redefining the alliances in the different theatres of war in the world.
Trump’s victory shows the barbarity of the so-called “American democracy”: a fascist billionaire in power, waging war against the poor masses internally and the oppressed peoples internationally.
Trump’s victory feeds, in all imperialist countries, the reaction, the police State, militarization, permanent emergency state and internal war against proletarians, women’s rights, against Afro American people, against immigrants with walls and expulsions, against Muslims and Arabs, against any progressive idea in schools, universities, mass medias, culture, art.
The new aggressive phase of US imperialism sharpens the inter-imperialist contradictions, with Russian imperialism, atomic superpower; with China, new social-imperialist power; and with the countries of imperialist Europe, currently under the German hegemony.
The global contest between the imperialist countries for the division of markets and the fight to control the energy resources originates and feeds wars of aggression and reactionary wars, sowing death, massacres and destruction all over the world.
It is the imperialist wars of aggression in every corner of the world that give rise to the great wave of immigration!
It is the barbarism of imperialist wars and the “homecoming” of these wars even in the heart of the imperialist citadels that blood the streets of the imperialist countries themselves!
In all the imperialist countries, the states and the governments of the masters of the world develop an internal war against the proletarians and the masses, who are driven by the crisis, oppression and repression to fight and to rebel more and more.
In the countries oppressed by imperialism, proletarians and oppressed people intensify the anti-imperialist and national liberation struggles; in particularly we need to support the Palestinian and Arab people struggle against Zionist state and imperialism, and the people’s wars. From India to Philippines, from Turkey to Peru, the people’s war, guided by Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties, is the reference for the way to get free from imperialism, the reactionary regimes and to build states of New Democracy, marching towards socialism.
The People’s War in India, today celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “Naxalbari uprising” that has opened this way, fights against massacres, Green Hunt Operation, repression against Maoists, Adivasi people, democratic and revolutionary intellectuals and students, against workers, peasants, women struggles, against national minorities; it shows that nothing can stop the people’s war and the liberation struggle of the people as nothing can stop international support.
The October Revolution and the great Lenin showed that we cannot fight and win against imperialism and its states without fighting revisionism and opportunism.
The objective conditions are favourable for revolution, because it is the principal tendency in the world.
All the forces of social-democracy, the ex “communist” parties became revisionists and reformists; they lose credit among the masses and proved to be useless tools to defend the living and working conditions of the masses, to oppose imperialism, war, fascism and the police state.
Beside the crisis of these forces, we are witnessing the rise of reactionary populist tendencies and fundamentalist reactionary movements that divide the masses to tie them to the car of this or that imperialism and, ultimately, to the most reactionary fractions of imperialism, bourgeoisie and the regimes serving them.
Proletarians and masses must firmly reject the illusions of the parliamentary and peaceful paths, aimed to disarm them, and boldly undertake the revolutionary path.
People’s War is the most advanced form to accomplish the revolution; that is why we must support it in all countries where it already begun and prepare it in all other countries, applying it to the concrete conditions of each country.
It needs to build genuine communist parties that will be the vanguard of the working class and leading core of all the people.
The Communist Parties, based on the revolutionary science of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism are built into the fire of the class struggle in close connection with the masses, for the beginning and development of the people’s war, applied to reality.
The Communist Parties must build the United Front of the exploited masses, of all sections oppressed by imperialism and develop the necessary tactics, according to the form that the political and military domination takes.
In the imperialist countries, the Communist Parties must integrate in their ranks the new migrant proletarians, by playing a vanguard role in their fight against over-exploitation, slavery, racism.
The Communist Parties must gather and organize the rebellion of the youth and the struggle of women as a powerful force for the revolution.
They must fight their own imperialism as the main enemy of the proletariat and the oppressed peoples, taking side resolutely with the masses of the nations attacked. Today in particularly we must fight against the imperialist occupation of Afghanistan, the imperialist aggression on Syria and nuclear menaces against North Korea.
The imperialist war and the reactionary dictatorship of bourgeoisie bring the need for the communist parties to equip themselves for opposing to imperialist war with people’s war and build their fighting force as nucleus of the red army.
The people’s wars, beside the policies of genocide, also face the pitfalls of peace negotiations, which, far from allowing people’s wars to grow in strength and consolidation in the view of the strategic offensive, are aimed to divert, suffocate and split them, to lead them to surrender.
Internationalism is unity between the proletariat and the oppressed peoples in the world against the common enemy.
Internationalism is working whole-heartedly for the development of the revolutionary movement and the revolutionary struggle in one’s own country, and supporting (by propaganda, sympathy, and material aid) this struggle, this, and only this, line, in every country without exception.” - Lenin
Internationalism is the construction of a new international organization, which, addressing the current problems of the Communists, will be able to move towards a general line of ICM and a new Communist International.
Long Live the 100th Anniversary of the Great October Revolution!
Death to Imperialism! On the way to protracted people’s war in all the world!
Long Live the Struggles of Proletarians and Oppressed Peoples in the World!
Long Live Proletarian Internationalism!
For a Red and Socialist Future, Marching to Communism!-

Declaration May Day 2017


Declaración del PCm Italia sobre la cuestión nacional de Catalunya



Nota del blog V.O. : Presentamos a continuación una importante declaración del Partido Comunista Maoísta de Italia (Proletari Comunisti) sobre la cuestión nacional de Catalunya. La hemos traducido del inglés al español por su especial interés, sabe exponer de forma clara y didáctica la situación actual de Catalunya y nos describe el papel que deben jugar los comunistas de Catalunya y de España en estos momentos. También supone una denuncia contra las desviaciones revisionistas de los falsos comunistas.

Cataluña – Algunas notas e instrumentos para una posición revolucionaria y de clase, para guiar la acción internacional y la solidaridad. PCm Italia.

Para contextualizar correctamente la cuestión de Cataluña, de ninguna manera podemos ver solo las aspiraciones de independencia de una gran parte de las masas catalanas o las características peculiares que pueden hacer de Cataluña una nación.
Esto, sin embargo siendo necesario, no explicaría por qué aquí y ahora esta contradicción ha llegado a un punto fundamental, porque se ha agudizado hasta poner al Estado español en la disyuntiva entre una nueva dictadura franquista  en Cataluña con una especie de ocupación militar, o la independencia nacional dirigida por una fracción de la burguesía nacional catalana y la burguesía media.
Marx y Engels nos enseñaron que hay que ir más allá de esto, tenemos que identificar el nexo existente entre el desarrollo de la burguesía en el Estado español y en Cataluña y las condiciones económicas y sociales que son el fundamento del agudo choque actual.
Por lo tanto, es imposible enmarcar adecuadamente el problema sin considerar la crisis económica y global, las contradicciones inter-imperialistas y el papel del Estado español, dentro del escenario de una Europa bajo el liderazgo alemán, aparte de otros factores.
Un primer punto que debe tenerse en cuenta es que la aspiración de establecerse como nación y afirmar el factor de la nación es ante todo una necesidad de la burguesía, particularmente en situaciones dentro de los países imperialistas. Es la burguesía que se esfuerza por desarrollar económicamente, obstáculos y barreras de manera progresiva, y exige una unidad territorial para atar a las masas trabajadoras y el movimiento progresista en su carro.
En el caso de Cataluña, el problema no son los residuos feudales, sino que el gobierno del Estado español contiene en sí mismo una fracción “feudal”, es decir, la monarquía y el post-franquismo, que, si bien no es el feudalismo en el sentido estricto, juega un papel de obstáculo y freno para el desarrollo de la burguesía catalana.
Otro elemento, que siempre es común en los asuntos nacionales y en España en particular, es el peso de la organización de la Iglesia, que en España es el Vaticano, la Curia Romana que, como se había unido firmemente a Franco, ahora toma firmemente partido por la monarquía española y el Estado español, y por lo tanto interactúa, alimenta la aspiración de independencia de Cataluña.
Otro elemento necesario para el análisis de la contradicción en Cataluña es, como nos enseñaron Marx y Engels, el estudio profundo del nexo existente entre el problema nacional y el desarrollo del movimiento obrero.

Aquí nuestro punto de referencia solo puede ser el de Francia en 1848; es decir, en Cataluña no vemos una dominación imperialista sobre un pueblo oprimido del tercer mundo, sino una situación en la que Cataluña es un país capitalista, no completada en términos de nación autónoma existente. La necesaria entrada de la clase trabajadora en esta disputa requiere que aparezca en el campo como una fuerza autónoma en lucha por el poder político.
La necesidad de que el proletariado entre al campo de la lucha actual en Cataluña está dentro de una definición precisa y una limitación concreta, a partir de lo que Marx y Engels declararon en el  Manifiesto: “Los obreros no tienen patria. No podemos quitarles lo que no tienen. Como el proletariado debe antes que nada adquirir la supremacía política, debe elevarse a ser la clase dirigente de la nación, debe constituirse en nación, hasta llegar tan lejos como para convertirse en sí mismo nacional, aunque no en el sentido burgués de la palabra. “
Por lo tanto, es evidente que el proletariado en Cataluña está interesado en una nación catalana como un terreno para la toma del poder político; y en este sentido, incluso en el actual choque, su forma de estar a favor de la independencia de Cataluña es radicalmente diferente de la de la burguesía.
También en Cataluña, el proletariado debe ser consciente de que una Cataluña en manos de la burguesía no es su país, sería la patria de la burguesía y los estratos de la burguesía pequeña y media aliada, y por lo tanto también en tal Cataluña, también en esta lucha por la independencia, la clase obrera debe conducir su lucha en los frentes sindical y económico, como en todos los frentes, para derrocar a la clase dominante actual.
Incluso dentro de la lucha por la independencia de Cataluña, la clase obrera es internacionalista y apunta a una sociedad en la que la economía está organizada a escala global y donde no solo desaparece la explotación de una nación por otra sino el antagonismo de las naciones como tales, porque esta explotación y antagonismo siempre son característicos de las economías capitalistas e imperialistas.
La clase trabajadora aborda la cuestión nacional como una clase que lucha por el poder político, asumiendo todos los problemas de la vida nacional y, en el caso de Cataluña, el tema de la independencia. Pero esta no es una lucha aparte, sino una parte integral de la lucha más general para apoderarse del poder político y  la emancipación del proletariado. (Véase Marx en Italia / Austria, carta a Laube, mayo de 1848, citada en “El marxismo, la cuestión nacional y colonial”, Stalin)
La clase trabajadora -como nos enseñaron Marx y Engels- toma parte en las luchas nacionales, como en el caso de Cataluña, no solo como una cuestión social sino como una cuestión de democracia. De hecho, el referéndum y el derecho de declarar la independencia de Cataluña, son cuestiones democráticas, apoyadas por una fracción de la misma burguesía.
Está claro – como Marx y Engels nos mostraron – que la posición de los comunistas y de la clase obrera no puede ser la misma que la de los falsos comunistas, que hacen caso omiso o incluso se oponen a la cuestión nacional de Cataluña, tomando con argumentos socialistas el lado del Estado español. La lucha de la clase obrera se desarrolla mejor en una situación en la que no existe la opresión de una nación sobre otra, también, en el caso concreto, de un país imperialista.
Pero, la clase trabajadora también participa por otra razón importante. La participación de la clase obrera como fuerza autónoma en la lucha en Cataluña cambia profundamente los términos del problema, destacando la contradicción existente entre los intereses de clase de la burguesía catalana y los intereses de las masas. Eso porque, siempre, también en la Cataluña actual, la burguesía subordina, y subordinará aún más, los intereses de la nación a su propio interés.
Es importante mencionar la cita de Marx y Engels de 1849 en Neue Rheinische Zeitung (citada en Marxismo, la cuestión nacional y colonial, Stalin), donde señalan que en la disputa italiana, la independencia italiana podría perderse no tanto por el poder militar de Austria sino más bien por la cobardía de la monarquía piamontesa. Podemos compararlo con la actitud del actual presidente Puigdemont en Cataluña.
Esto también es importante para poder comprender el núcleo del punto de vista de Marx y Engels, que no se limitó a defender la acción de clase como una fuerza autónoma, sino que también llama a sacar conclusiones del conflicto “La insurrección de masas, guerra revolucionaria, guerrillas por todas partes son los únicos medios con que poca gente pueda  ganar un grupo más numeroso,  y con el que un ejército más débil puede hacer frente a un ejército más fuerte y mejor organizado”.

Si el proletariado como clase autónoma entra en el campo de batalla y toma esto como los medio para hacer frente a la contienda  en Cataluña, es probable que la fracción burguesa que actualmente encabeza el movimiento “en lugar de aliarse con las masas preferirá negociar la paz con su peor enemigo“.
Marx y Engels nos enseñan que en el contexto actual de la lucha en Cataluña, la participación de los trabajadores es de gran importancia, aunque no sean plenamente conscientes e incluso si fueran pequeños grupos.  ¿Porque es esto importante? Porque puede ser la oportunidad de abrir el camino y preparar el terreno para la lucha por el poder proletario en Cataluña, por una Cataluña socialista.
En esencia, en una sociedad capitalista desarrollada, y Cataluña lo es, incluso frente a la opresión nacional por parte del Estado español, los trabajadores no tienen país. Sin embargo en tal lucha participan y toman partido del lado nacional de Cataluña, para hacer avanzar la lucha por la liberación de la clase obrera, que excluye cualquier opresión y explotación de una nación por parte de otra. Esta posición es diferente del nacionalismo burgués, que tiene como objetivo continuar oprimiendo a la clase obrera y las masas en un contexto nacional. Esta participación de la clase obrera va en contra de las posturas que, en relación con Cataluña, consideran la cuestión nacional como ajena a la clase trabajadora.
Una vez más, teniendo en cuenta la situación en Cataluña, surge la necesidad de los comunistas que quieren dirigir a la clase trabajadora como una fuerza autónoma para decididamente enfrentar el oportunismo de derecha  y de “izquierda”.
Los primeros defienden la causa del Estado español, llegando a la conclusión de que el Estado español es el verdadero marco de la lucha de clases, lo que naturalmente los lleva a no aprovechar la crisis catalana para intensificar la lucha de clases en el español Estado.
Los últimos distancian a la clase trabajadora de la lucha de liberación en Cataluña, dejando el campo libre para la burguesía y contribuyendo a mantener esta lucha nacional en el campo de las contradicciones inter-burguesas.
Ambas desviaciones, de hecho, rompen la unidad de la clase obrera, que justo en la situación de la crisis catalana, tendrían la oportunidad de conseguir colocar unos buenos cimientos sólidos en el Estado español y en Cataluña, que permitan después alcanzar los objetivos del poder proletario y el socialismo.
Al mismo tiempo, es absolutamente necesario en la lucha actual por la independencia nacional de Cataluña no permitirle ningún lugar a una posición que considere a Cataluña algo diferente de un país capitalista desarrollado. Esto daría lugar a una visión de Cataluña como una nación proletaria porque está oprimida, lo cual es siempre una característica de la burguesía y su ala reaccionaria.
Por lo tanto, es decisiva la lucha de los comunistas contra aquellos que impiden que la clase trabajadora participe en esta disputa, tanto en el Estado español como en Cataluña, particularmente contra aquellos que se pintan a sí mismos como de izquierda y / o comunistas.

Lenin nos enseña que si los comunistas hoy abandonan la lucha inmediata y decidida por la cuestión democrática de la independencia de Cataluña, jugarán el juego de la burguesía, tanto en el Estado español como en la propia Cataluña. En el estado español, porque debilitan la lucha progresista por la independencia de Cataluña, que sin el papel y la participación de la clase obrera no puede ganar; en Cataluña, porque dejan a la burguesía libre para atar las masas en su carro. Por el contrario, el papel y la participación de la clase obrera permitirán formular e implementar la reivindicación de la independencia de Cataluña de una manera revolucionaria y no reformista, y abrir el camino, repetimos, a una Cataluña socialista.
Por esta razón, incluso delante de la agudización actual de la contradicción entre el Estado español, dirigido por el gobierno de Rajoy, apoyado en diversas formas por los otros partidos parlamentarios de España, y el gobierno catalán de Puigdemont, no debemos dejar engañarnos por los lemas de las burguesías; estos tienden tarde o temprano a establecerse o alinearse detrás de otras potencias imperialistas para lograr sus objetivos.
