Long live May Day, day of the proletariat, in struggle for communism!
How does the world look, in 2014? Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Libya, Mali, Afghanistan, Egypt… In more and more countries, there are attempts to destabilize governments, so that the ruling clique is thrown out, in order that a new one comes. It means here: a governing bureaucratic bourgeoisie is changed, when anyway feudalism remains unaffected.
The reason for that is easy to understand: capitalism can not overcome its internal crisis, owing to the law of the tendency of the rate of profit to fall. It means that it will come to more and more imperialist interventions, to more and more inter-imperialist contradictions, which express themselves up to war, and also to always more poverty, more national and social demagogy, and this up to Fascism as “the open terrorist dictatorship of the most reactionary, most chauvinistic and most imperialist elements of finance capital”.
In the background, it also means that, in essence, barbarism anchors itself more and more. Indifference, subjectivity, individualism, spirit of competition, etc. are the values that are presented as “coherent” and “normal”, while on the other side consolation is given by religions, irrationality, retreat into subcultures, etc.. The culture is also increasingly under attack, in the name of the expansion of the capitalist market, as well as the nature anywhere in the world, on behalf of the urgency of capital accumulation.
Nevertheless, this is only one aspect of reality. We are living a period, which is on the one hand temporarily, and which finds itself on the other side in a context of an “epoch of 50 to 100 years”, because the 21st century will be the one of the world revolution. “President Gonzalo teaches us that in the process of the world revolution to sweep away imperialism and reaction from the face of the earth there are three moments: 1st, the strategic defensive; 2nd, the strategic equilibrium; and 3rd, the strategic offensive of the world revolution.
He reaches this conclusion by applying the law of contradiction to the revolution since contradiction rules everything and all contradictions have two aspects in struggle; in this case revolution and counter-revolution (…). Our conceptions is of a long-term process with the conviction of reaching Communism even if it means passing through a series of twists and turns and the reverses that will necessarily occur (…). As Communists, we should see not only the specific moment, but the long years to come.” (Communist Party of Peru: the International Line, 1988)
In this sense, we say that it is a historical necessity to know the history of his own country, to defend the democratic aspects and to synthesize the revolutionary aspects, as a guiding Thought to open the way for the Revolution, until victory in the People’s War , under the banner of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, ideology of the proletariat which can only be worn by the genuine Communist Party.
It would therefore be wrong to let oneself be impressed by things like the canonization, this week, of the popes John XXIII and John Paul II, which intends to spread superstition, or from the current intensive propaganda in Afghanistan about the elections, which only goal is to reinforce the colonial stand. It is also the case with the false promises about improvements of the work conditions in Bangladesh, one year after the collapse of the Rana plaza building, and the recent elections made by a regime without and with its bourgeoisie opposition with greed for power. Directly and indirectly, those reactionaries are forcing people to take more and more superstition, backwardness and blindness.
This is the same with the next European elections, where the radical reformists will get some success in Belgium, but where in France the far rights will celebrate electoral victories. These are just attempts to keep a system alive, that is already at the end, which is already condemned historically.
Therefore we call: Proletarians and oppressed people and nations of the world, unite!
