In its statement on the occasion of May 1st 2012, Gran Marcha Hacia el Comunismo (Long March Towards Communism) stated that: “(….) today the communists, the marxists-leninist-maoists and revolutionaries of Spain, must support the efforts of those marxist-leninist-maoist parties and organizations that in different countries struggle against the new variants of revisionism and opportunism (prachandism, avakianism, etc.) and the ideological, political and organizative unity of the marxists-leninists-maoists of the world can therefore continue being promoted in order to give solution to the problems the world proletarian revolution faces in the Twenty-first Century”.
In this sense, Gran Marcha Hacia el Comunismo considers that Resolutions 1 and 2 of the Special Meeting of parties of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM) for an international Conference of marxist-leninist-maoist parties and organizations of the world of May 1st 2012, are an important step in the struggle of the marxists-leninists-maoists to face and give a response to the crisis that led to the collapse of RIM (the highest organizative form which the marxist-leninist-maoist parties and organizations of the world had endowed), due principally to the errors and attitude of the RIM Committee who blocked the accomplishment of the tasks it had marked itself and , in consequence, RIM not being able to fulfill the tasks it had assumed.
This is the reason why Gran Marcha Hacia el Comunismo supports the proposal made of calling an international conference to reactivate and reorganize the necessary international organization of the marxists-leninists-maoists as well as organizing a seminar which draws up the balance of the experiences of RIM and the International Communist Movement marxist-leninist-maoist, where the existing points of unity and differences between the different marxist-leninist-maoist parties and organizations are identified and discussed, advancing therefore to the goal of conforming an international of new type founded in the principles of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, which will allow to place itself at the forefront of the struggles of the proletariat and peoples of the world and prepare and develop the new wave of proletarian world revolution.
Within this balance and points of discussion, Gran Marcha Hacia el Comunismo considers that the marxist-leninist-maoist parties, organizations and nucleus should include in the debate topics such as for example:
-The spreading amongst the proletariat and peoples masses of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism as the science of proletarian revolution.
-The lessons of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (1966-1969) and the reasons which allowed the followers of the capitalist road to overthrow the dictatorship of the proletariat after the counter-revolutionary coup following the death of Mao Tse-tung in 1976.
-Study the question of Lin Piao and the reasons for his elimination in 1971, basing upon the principle of seek truth from facts.
-The struggle against revisionism and all forms of right and “left” opportunism and bourgeoisie ideologies in the bosom of the working class and peoples movement (anarchism, trotskyism, etc),
-The experience of the RIM Committee and lessons for a future international leading organ of the marxists-leninists-maoists.
-Balance and experiences of the magazine “A World to Win”.
-How to help in establishing marxist-leninist-maoist parties where they already do not exist.
-The work of the international magazine“Maoist Road” and its diffusion as a tool to help in the ideological, political and organizative unity of the marxists-leninists-maoists.
Gran Marcha Hacia el Comunismo considers that this debate should be based in the teachings of the Chinese communists led by Mao Tse-tung who, in a day like today 46 years ago, in the historical Decision Concerning the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, they wrote in its point 6: “The method to be used in debates is to present the facts, reason things out, and persuade through reasoning. Any method of forcing a minority holding different views to submit is impermissible. The minority should be protected, because sometimes the truth is with the minority. Even if the minority is wrong, they should still be allowed to argue their case and reserve their views.
When there is a debate, it should be conducted by reasoning, not by coercion or force.
In the course of debate, every revolutionary should be good at thinking things out for himself and should develop the communist spirit of daring to think, daring to speak and daring to act”.
Acting in this way, we marxists-leninist-maoists will be able to reach the root of the problems the International Communist Movement faces, and, as the Declaration of the Revolutionary International Movement wrote in 1984: “At the present juncture of world history, the international proletariat has to take up the challenge of forming its own organization, an International of a new type based on Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, assimilating the valuable experience of the past. And this goal must be boldly proclaimed before the international proletariat and the oppressed of the world with the same revolutionary daring of our predecessors from the Communards of Paris to the proletarian rebels of Shanghai who dared to storm heaven and resolved to do the “impossible” –build a communist world.”
The International Communist Movement will develop and strengthen in spite of all difficulties, because it extracts its force from the invincible theory of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and the powerful storms of class struggle. The revolutionary struggle of the international proletariat and oppressed peoples will crush imperialism and put an end to the capitalist society of oppression and exploitation. Proletarian revolution will triumph in the whole world.
Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic Revolution!
Workers of the world unite!
Long live Marxism-Leninism-Maoism!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
