Joint declaration May first 2013

The popular masses want to overthrow the capitalist, imperialist governments and the governments who are their servants!
Proletarians want to unite for the Party of the revolution!
Communists support anti-imperialist struggles and develop People’s Wars for the world proletarian revolution!


Imperialism is the "highest stage of capitalism” —a stage of “parasitism and decay” (Lenin, Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism). Now is the time to bury it, as soon as possible. The crisis of capitalism is like a chronic disease that torments it. It creates the grounds for its death.
The crisis of capitalism is above all a crisis of overproduction: “In these crises, there breaks out an epidemic that, in all earlier epochs, would have seemed an absurdity —the epidemic of over-production. Society suddenly finds itself put back into a state of momentary barbarism.” (Marx and Engels, The Communist Manifesto)
But it is the time when the bourgeoisie intensify its efforts to make the proletarians and masses pay for the crisis. As Marx and Engels have written more than 150 years ago in the Communist Manifesto: “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.
Today, the world proletarians have never been so numerous, along with the people’s masses they represent at least 90% of the population; and these 90% are those who are affected by the crisis and need a radical change in the society. “The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interest of the immense majority.” (Ibid.)
The financial crisis of global capitalism deepens and widens. The imperialists argue among themselves to plunder all types of resources (human and material) in the backward countries, in addition to increasing the exploitation of workers and the middle class in their own countries in order to overcome this crisis.
In Europe and the capitalist countries, this results in a restructuring of the production, trade and services, which leads to the displacement of production in countries where the cost of labour is lower, a massive destruction of jobs and the introduction of new and more productive means of production at the expense of the safety and health of workers. At the same time, taxes are increasing, wages are falling and benefits are reduced. In general, the intensification of the crisis implies that small tradespeople, shopkeepers, and retired tradesmen… —all these sink gradually into the proletariat” (ibid.).
In countries oppressed by imperialism, the proletariat and people of Africa, Asia and Latin America are subject to the dictates of the imperialist powers, who are protected by their local watchdogs; those powers discard their watchdogs when they no longer defend or badly defend their interests. The imperialist powers use the policy of “divide and rule” and do not hesitate to militarily intervene - both to support regimes of their servants or to topple those not favourable to them - and to provoke ethnic and religious conflicts to protect their interests and break people’s resistance to oppression. They rely on religious obscurantism or secular liberalism to maintain by any menas their economic, political and ideological domination. The ruling classes of these countries, be they rising 3rd world powers - China, India, Brazil or South Africa or oppressed countries, are doing everything possible to ensure maximum exploitation of the labour force and access and control on raw materials in the interests of the imperialist system.
In the imperialist and oppressed countries, the ruling classes use as watchdogs the reactionary right forces as well as the reformist, social democratic and revisionist forces that apply their policy of exploitation and oppression of proletarians and masses. Official trade unions are working with the various governments to negotiate “austerity measures” and privatisation schemes so that the workers reconcile with them and to stop the struggles that clash against the bosses and the state. The reconciling always allows capitalists to strengthen and continue their destructive work undermining the gains won by the working class through a hundred years of struggle.
In imperialist countries, the more openly reactionary right and also the reformist and social democrat “left” uphold through different forms the “national identity”, to use it against the immigrants in order to strengthen the division of the proletariat and the masses and thus opening the way to old and new fascism. Many populist, fascist and neo-Nazi parties and organizations are thriving on the fertile land cultivated by all the traditional political forces and institutions. The bourgeoisie defends its system and institutions with the state police and also by using the mass participation in elections. This is why the proletariat and the masses must develop the electoral boycott and intensify the class struggle.


“IT IS RIGHT TO REBEL” (MAO ZEDONG)
Faced with the crisis, the proletarians —the workers from the cities and the countryside— are rebelling. Workers from factories threatened with closure are mobilizing against layoffs, the degradation of working conditions, wage cuts and increased working time, because they don’t want to pay for the crisis. Peasants and agricultural workers resist and sometime are occupy land. The masses are mobilizing against housing evictions, tax increases, attacks on their environment, the dismantling of public services, attacks on union freedoms and the rights of youth, women, etc.
These struggles are taking place in all the countries in the world, like those of the auto and metallurgy workers in France, Belgium, Germany and Italy, of the miners In Spain, while masses are fighting against housing evictions, and the great students' struggle in Canada, and in other countries also, against attacks on education and tax increases.
And, moreover, like those in India where hundreds of millions of workers went on strike, or South Africa, where miners rebelled against the black and white ruling classes who exploit and oppress the workers, or Brazil, where poor peasants and landless are occupying the land they work.
In the Arab countries, particularly in Tunisia and Egypt, despite the manoeuvres of imperialists to protect their interests and support the new watchdogs, despite the fact that these watchdogs are hiding themselves under the mask of religion in order to exploit workers and people, to suppress the just rebellion before it becomes revolution, the masses are finding their way and learning from their mistakes, for a genuine New Democratic revolution, that cannot be achieved without the leadership of the working class;  this raises the questions of the revolutionary strategy, of armed struggle, and the building of a vanguard party
Imperialists and their interventions are not able to stop and extinguish the anti-imperialist struggles in the world, from Palestine, to Iraq, Afghanistan, Latin America, nor against the new imperialist interventions in Libya, Syria, Mali.


YOU CANNOT MAKE REVOLUTION IN A PEACEFUL WAY!
The world is in turmoil; the ideological understanding operates bit by bit or with leaps, with advances and setbacks, in the ranks of the proletariat and the masses and on the consciousness of the crisis and the nature of imperialism, the need to overthrow it and build a new society on the ashes of the old one.
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. 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.
People’s War is the most advanced way to make revolution, so we must support in every country in which it is being organized, prepared by accumulating forces, and applied to the concrete conditions of each country. 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 build and consolidate the proletarian parties for the revolution, parties of new type, Marxist-Leninist- Maoist communist parties, in our respective countries, taking into account our past experience and applying it to the current conditions of the imperialist system of today.
This was clearly expressed the 24th November 2012 in Hamburg by the great International Conference in Support of the People’s War in India, in which hundreds of representatives of revolutionary and anti-imperialist organizations and Maoist parties and organizations from more than twenty countries have called to unite and strengthen the class struggle in each country. It was a great example of internationalism. We must advance to further strengthen and give organisational form to proletarian internationalism.We must pursue the international unity of the communists in the world towards the construction of a new international organization to fight together against imperialism and reaction and march together towards a new Communist International, for socialism and communism. .

Proletarians and oppressed people of all countries, unite!
Down with imperialism and all its watchdogs!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
Long live world proletarian revolution!

dichiarazione 1° maggio - italiano

Le masse popolari vogliono rovesciare i governi capitalisti, imperialisti e tutti i governi a loro asserviti
I proletari vogliono unirsi per il partito della rivoluzione
I comunisti sostengono le lotte antimperialiste, sviluppano le Guerre Popolari per la rivoluzione proletaria mondiale

L’'imperialismo è lo “stadio supremo del capitalismo – uno stadio parassitario e decadente ” (Lenin- Imperialismo stadio supremo del capitalismo), si tratta oggi di sotterrarlo quanto prima. La crisi del capitalismo è come una malattia cronica che lo affligge e prepara le condizioni per la sua morte.
La crisi del capitalismo, è soprattutto una crisi di sovrapproduzione: “Nel corso delle crisi un'epidemia che, in un'altra epoca sarebbe sembrata un'assurdità, si abbatte sulla società – l'epidemia della sovrapproduzione. La società si trova trascinata ad uno stato di barbarie momentanea”. (Marx-Engels – Il Manifesto del partito comunista).
Ma è l'ora in cui la borghesia intensifica i suoi sforzi per far pagare la crisi ai proletari e alle masse popolari.
Come scrissero Marx ed Engels a più di 150 anni nel Manifesto: “Le armi di cui la borghesia si è servita per abbattere il feudalesimo si ritorcono oggi contro la borghesia stessa. Ma la borghesia non ha solamente forgiato le armi che la mettono a morte, essa ha prodotto gli uomini che maneggeranno queste armi - gli operai moderni, i proletari”.
Oggi il proletariato mondiale non è mai stato così numeroso, con l'insieme delle masse popolari rappresenta almeno il 90% della popolazione, ed è questo 90% che è toccato da questa crisi e che ha bisogno di un cambiamento radicale della società. “Il movimento proletario è il movimento autonomo dell'immensa maggioranza, nell'interesse dell'immensa maggioranza” (ibidem).
La crisi finanziaria del capitalismo mondiale si approfondisce e si allarga. Gli imperialisti contendono tra loro per la rapina di tutti i tipi di risorse (umane e materiali) nei paesi arretrati, in più si accresce lo sfruttamento dei lavoratori e delle classi medie nei loro paesi al fine di superare questa crisi”.
Questo si traduce in Europa e nei paesi capitalisti in una ristrutturazione della produzione, del commercio e dei servizi che porta alla delocalizzazione della produzione nei paesi dove il costo della manodopera è debole, alla distruzione massiccia di posti di lavoro e all'introduzione di nuovi mezzi di produzione più moderni per aumentare la produttività a scapito della sicurezza e salute dei lavoratori; nello stesso tempo le tasse aumentano, i salari si abbassano, le prestazioni sociali diminuiscono. In senso generale l'intensificazione della crisi trascina anche “piccoli industriali, piccoli commercianti nella scala inferiore delle classi, e molti di essi cadono nel proletariato” (ibidem).
Nei paesi oppressi dall'imperialismo i proletari e i popoli di Asia, Africa e America Latina sono sottomessi ai diktat delle potenze imperialiste protette dai loro cani da guardia locali, di cui essi si sbarazzano quando non difendono più o difendono male i loro interessi.
Esse praticano la politica di “dividere per meglio regnare” e non esitano ad intervenire militarmente – sia per sostenere governi a loro asserviti sia per rovesciare governi non a loro non favorevoli - a provocare conflitti interetnici e religiosi per proteggere i loro interessi e schiacciare la resistenza dei popoli all'oppressione. Essi si appoggiano sull'oscurantismo religioso o sul liberalismo laico per mantenere con ogni mezzo la loro dominazione economica, politica e ideologica. Le classi dirigenti di questi paesi, sia quando sono potenze del terzo mondo in ascesa - come Cina, India, Brasile, Sud Africa - sia quando sono oppressi, fanno tutto il possibile per garantire il massimo sfruttamento della forza lavoro e l'accesso e il controllo alle materie prime nell'interesse del sistema imperialista.
Nei paesi imperialisti e nei paesi oppressi le classi dominanti hanno per cani da guardia sia le forze reazionarie di destra sia le forze riformiste e socialdemocratiche che applicano la loro politica di sfruttamento e oppressione dei proletari e delle masse popolari.
I sindacati istituzionali collaborano con i differenti governi per negoziare le loro “misure di rigore” e piani di privatizzazioni in modo che i lavoratori si riconcilino e per fermarne le lotte che si scontrano con i padroni e lo stato. La conciliazione permette sempre ai capitalisti di rafforzarsi e di proseguire la loro opera distruttrice che mina le conquiste di 100 anni di lotta del proletariato.
Nei paesi imperialisti, sia la destra più apertamente reazionaria, sia la “sinistra” riformista, socialdemocratica, riprendono, sotto differenti forme, il tema dell'identità nazionale per usarla contro gli immigrati alfine di incentivare la divisione del proletariato e delle masse popolari, aprendo la strada al fascismo vecchio e nuovo. Numerosi partiti e organizzazioni populiste, fasciste e neo naziste prosperano così oggi sul terreno fertile coltivato dall'insieme delle forze politiche e istituzionali.
La borghesia difende il suo sistema e le sue istituzioni sia con lo Stato di polizia sia utilizzando la partecipazione delle masse alle elezioni. Per questo il proletariato e le masse devono sviluppare il boicottaggio elettorale e intensificare la lotta di classe.


E' GIUSTO RIBELLARSI” (Mao Tse Tung)
Di fronte alla crisi i proletari, i lavoratori della città e della campagna si ribellano. Gli operai delle fabbriche minacciati di chiusura si mobilitano per non pagare il costo della crisi, contro i licenziamenti, la precarietà, contro il degrado delle condizioni di lavoro, contro l'abbassamento dei salari, l'aumento del tempo di lavoro; i lavoratori agricoli, i contadini resistono, a volte occupano le terre; le masse popolari si mobilitano contro le espulsioni dagli alloggi, contro il rialzo delle imposte, contro gli attacchi all'ambiente, al territorio, contro lo smantellamento dei servizi pubblici, contro l'attacco alle libertà sindacali e ai diritti dei giovani e delle donne, ecc.
Queste lotte si sviluppano in tutti i paesi del mondo: come quelle degli operai dell'auto e della metallurgia in Francia, Belgio, Germania, Italia; come le lotte dei minatori in Spagna; le mobilitazioni popolari contro le cacciate dalle case; come la grande lotta studentesca in Canada, e anche in tanti altri paesi, contro l'aumento delle tasse scolastiche e universitarie.
Ma soprattutto come in India dove si è realizzato uno sciopero di 100 milioni di lavoratori, come in Sud Africa dove i minatori si sono rivoltati contro le classi dominanti bianche e nere che li sfruttano e opprimono, come in Brasile dove i contadini poveri e i senza terra occupano le terre che essi lavorano.
Nei paesi arabi, in particolare in Tunisia ed Egitto, malgrado le manovre degli imperialisti per proteggere i loro interessi, malgrado il sostegno che essi apportano ai nuovi cani da guardia, malgrado il camuffamento di questi ultimi sotto la maschera della religione di cui si servono per sfruttare i lavoratori e il popolo, soffocare la giusta rivolta perché non si trasformi in rivoluzione, le masse popolari cercano la strada e apprendono dai loro errori, per una vera rivoluzione di nuova democrazia che non può essere realizzata che sotto la direzione della classe operaia, che si ponga la questione della strategia rivoluzionaria, della lotta armata e del partito d'avanguardia.
L'imperialismo non riesce con i suoi interventi a fermare e soffocare le lotte antimperialiste nel mondo, dalla Palestina, all'Iraq, all'Afghanistan, all'America Latina, né lo potranno i nuovi interventi imperialisti in Libia, Siria, Mali, ecc.


LA RIVOLUZIONE NON SI PUO' FARE PER VIA PACIFICA
Il mondo è in ebollizione, la decantazione ideologica opera a poco a poco con avanzamenti e arretramenti nelle fila del proletariato e delle masse popolari e intorno alla presa di coscienza della crisi e della natura dell'imperialismo e della necessità di rovesciarlo per costruire una nuova società sulle basi delle ceneri della vecchia.
In questa nuova ondata di lotta e resistenza, dobbiamo sostenere e rafforzare la lotta dei popoli per liberazione e la nuova democrazia, verso il socialismo e comunismo. È in questo contesto che emerge e si sviluppa una potenziale nuova ondata della rivoluzione proletaria mondiale, che ha come punto di riferimento e ancoraggio strategico le guerre popolari sviluppate dai partiti maoisti.
La guerra popolare è la forma più avanzata per realizzare la rivoluzione. Per questo bisogna sostenerla in tutti i paesi in cui la si conduce, organizza o prepara accumulando le forze e applicandola alle condizioni concrete di ciascun paese. Diretta dal PCI(maoista), la guerra popolare in India resiste con successo agli attacchi del nemico e riesce ad espandersi e crescere. La guerra popolare si dispiega anche nelle Filippine, sotto la direzione del Partito Comunista delle Filippine, che sostiene il maoismo. In Perù essa persiste, nonostante l’azione di una tendenza liquidazionista. In Turchia la lotta rivoluzionaria diretta dai maoisti avanza secondo la strategia della guerra popolare. In altri paesi sono in corso o preparazione nuove iniziative.
Bisogna costruire e consolidare i partiti del proletariato per la rivoluzione, partiti comunisti di tipo nuovo, partiti comunisti marxisti leninisti maoisti in ogni paese, appropriandoci dell'esperienza del passato e applicandola alle condizioni aggiornate del sistema imperialista odierno.

Questo si è chiaramente espresso il 24 novembre 2012 ad Amburgo con la grande Conferenza internazionale di sostegno alla guerra popolare in India, in cui centinaia di rappresentanti di organizzazioni rivoluzionarie e antimperialiste e di partiti e organizzazioni maoiste di oltre una ventina di paesi del mondo hanno fatto appello a unirsi e rafforzare la lotta di classe in ogni paese. È stato un grande esempio di internazionalismo.
Dobbiamo avanzare ancora nell'unità internazionale dei comunisti nel mondo verso la costruzione di una nuova organizzazione internazionale per combattere insieme contro l'imperialismo e marciare insieme verso una nuova Internazionale Comunista, per il socialismo e il comunismo.

Proletari e popoli oppressi di tutto il mondo, unitevi!
Abbasso l'imperialismo e tutti i suoi cani da guardia!
Viva l'internazionalismo proletario!
Viva la rivoluzione proletaria mondiale!

declaration premier mai - francais

Les masses populaires veulent renverser les gouvernements capitalistes, impérialistes et les gouvernements qui les servent !
Les prolétaires veulent s’unir pour le Parti de la révolution !
Les communistes soutiennent les luttes anti-impérialistes et développent les Guerres Populaires pour la révolution prolétarienne mondiale!

L'impérialisme est le «stade suprême du capitalisme » - une étape de « parasitisme et putréfaction» (Lénine, L'impérialisme, stade suprême du capitalisme). Il s’agit aujourd’hui de l’enterrer au plus vite. La crise du capitalisme est comme une maladie chronique qui le tourmente. Elle crée les conditions pour sa mort.
La crise du capitalisme, c’est avant tout une crise de surproduction : « Au cours des crises, une épidémie qui, a tout autre époque, eût semblé une absurdité, s’abat sur la société – l’épidémie de surproduction. La société se trouve ramenée à un état de barbarie momentanée. » (Marx et Engels, Manifeste du Parti Communiste)
Mais à l’heure où la bourgeoisie intensifie ses efforts pour faire payer la crise aux masses populaires, il est bon de rappeler ce qu’ont écrit Marx et Engels il y a plus de 150 ans dans le Manifeste : « 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 les hommes qui manieront ces armes – les ouvriers modernes, les prolétaires. »
Aujourd’hui, le prolétariat mondial n’a jamais été si nombreux. L’ensemble des masses populaires représente au moins 90 % de la population et ce sont ces 90% qui sont concernés par cette crise et qui ont besoin d’un changement radical de société. « Le mouvement prolétarien est le mouvement autonome de l’immense majorité dans l’intérêt de l’immense majorité. » (Idem)
« La crise financière du capitalisme mondial s’approfondit et s’élargit. Les impérialistes se disputent entre eux pour piller tous types de sources (humaines, matérielles) dans les pays arriérés, en plus d’accroître l’exploitation des travailleurs et des classes moyennes dans leur pays afin de surmonter cette crise. »
Cela se traduit en Europe et dans les pays capitalistes occidentaux, par une restructuration de la production, du commerce et des services, ce qui entraîne le déplacement de la production dans les pays où le coût de la main d’œuvre est faible, à la destruction massive d'emplois et à l’introduction de nouveaux moyens de production plus modernes pour plus de productivité au détriment de la sécurité et de la santé des travailleurs. En parallèle, les impôts augmentent, les salaires baissent, les prestations sociales diminuent. De manière générale, l’intensification de la crise entraîne que « petits industriels, petits commerçants, tout l’échelon inférieur des classes moyennes de jadis, tombent dans le prolétariat. » (Idem)
Dans les pays opprimés par l’impérialisme, le prolétariat et les peuples des pays d’Afrique, d’Asie et d’Amérique Latine sont soumis au diktat des puissances impérialistes protégées par leurs chiens de garde locaux dont elles se débarrassent lorsqu’ils ne défendent plus ou mal leurs intérêts. Les puissances impérialistes utilisent la politique du «diviser pour mieux régner» et n’hésitent pas à intervenir militairement -à la fois pour soutenir des régimes à leur botte ou pour renverser des gouvernements qui ne leur sont pas favorables- et à provoquer des conflits ethniques et religieux pour protéger leurs intérêts et briser la résistance des peuples à l'oppression. Ils s'appuient sur l'obscurantisme religieux ou le libéralisme laïc pour maintenir coûte que coûte leur domination économique, politique et idéologique. Les classes dirigeantes de ces pays, qu'il s'agisse de puissances montantes du tiers-monde -Chine, Inde, Brésil ou Afrique du Sud- ou de pays opprimés, font tout leur possible pour assurer l'exploitation maximale de la main-d'œuvre et l'accès et le contrôle sur les matières premières dans l'intérêt du système impérialiste.
Dans les pays impérialistes et opprimés, les classes dirigeantes utilisent comme chiens de garde aussi bien les forces réactionnaires de droite que les forces réformistes, sociales-démocrates et révisionnistes qui appliquent leur politique d'exploitation et d’oppression des prolétaires et des masses. Les syndicats officiels collaborent avec les divers gouvernements pour négocier les «mesures d'austérité» et les plans de privatisations afin qu’elles soient acceptées par les travailleurs et qu’ils mettent fin aux luttes qui affrontent les patrons et l'Etat. La conciliation permet toujours aux capitalistes de se renforcer et de poursuivre leur œuvre destructrice en sapant les acquis d’une centaine d’années de lutte de la classe ouvrière.
Dans les pays impérialistes, la droite la plus ouvertement réactionnaire et les réformistes et sociaux-démocrates « de gauche » reprennent sous différentes formes «l'identité nationale», afin de l'utiliser contre les immigrés en vue de renforcer la division du prolétariat et des masses et ouvrant ainsi la voie au fascisme ancien et nouveau. De nombreux partis et organisations populistes, fascistes et néo-nazis prospèrent sur ce terrain fertile cultivé par l’ensemble des forces politiques et institutions traditionnelles. La bourgeoisie défend son système et ses institutions grâce à l'Etat policier et en utilisant également la participation des masses aux élections. C'est pourquoi le prolétariat et les masses doivent développer le boycott électoral et intensifier la lutte des classes.

« On à raison de se révolter » (Mao Zedong)
 Face à la crise, les prolétaires - les travailleurs des villes et de la campagne - se révoltent. Les ouvriers des usines menacées de fermeture se mobilisent contre les licenciements, les dégradations des conditions de travail, les baisses de salaires et l’augmentation du temps de travail, car ils ne veulent pas payer le prix de la crise. Les paysans et travailleurs agricoles résistent et occupent parfois des terres. Les masses se mobilisent contre les expulsions de logement, les augmentations d'impôts, les attaques sur leur environnement, le démantèlement des services publics, les attaques contre les libertés syndicales et contre les droits de la jeunesse, des femmes, etc.
Ces luttes ont lieu dans tous les pays du monde, comme ceux des travailleurs de l'automobile et de la métallurgie en France, en Belgique, en Allemagne et en Italie ; des mineurs en Espagne, tandis que les masses se battent contre les expulsions de logement ; et comme la grande lutte étudiante au Canada, et dans d'autres pays également, contre les attaques sur l'éducation et la hausse des frais.
Mais aussi comme en Inde où des centaines de millions de travailleurs ont fait grève ; ou en Afrique du Sud, où les mineurs se sont révoltés contre les classes dirigeantes noires et blanches qui exploitent et oppriment les travailleurs ; ou au Brésil, où des paysans pauvres et sans-terres occupent les terres qu’ils travaillent.
Dans les pays arabes, en particulier en Tunisie et en Egypte, malgré les manœuvres des impérialistes pour protéger leurs intérêts et soutenir les nouveaux chiens de garde, malgré le camouflage de ces derniers sous le masque de la religion dont ils se servent pour exploiter les travailleurs et le peuple et étouffer la juste révolte pour qu’elle ne se transforme pas en révolution, les masses populaires se fraient un chemin et apprennent de leurs erreurs, pour une véritable Révolution de Nouvelle Démocratie, qui ne peut être atteinte sans la direction de la classe ouvrière ; ce qui soulève la question de la stratégie révolutionnaire, de la lutte armée, et de la construction d'un parti d’avant-garde.
Les impérialistes et leurs interventions ne sont pas en mesure d'arrêter et d’éteindre les luttes anti-impérialistes dans le monde, de la Palestine à l’Irak, l’Afghanistan, l’Amérique latine, pas plus que ne le pourront les nouvelles interventions impérialistes en Libye, Syrie, Mali.

On ne peut pas faire la révolution de manière pacifique !
 Le monde est en bouillonnement, la décantation idéologique s’opère peu à peu, avec des avancées et des reculs, dans les rangs du prolétariat et des masses autour de ​​la prise de conscience de la crise et de la nature de l'impérialisme, et la nécessité de le renverser et de construire une nouvelle société sur les cendres de l'ancienne.
Dans cette nouvelle vague de lutte et de résistance, nous devons soutenir et consolider la lutte pour la libération des peuples et pour la nouvelle démocrate, vers le socialisme et le communisme. C’est le contexte dans lequel une potentielle nouvelle vague de la révolution prolétarienne mondiale émerge et se développe. Elle a comme points de référence et d’ancrage stratégiques les guerres populaires dirigées par les partis maoïstes.
La Guerre Populaire est la façon la plus avancée pour faire la révolution, nous devons donc la soutenir dans chaque pays où elle est organisée, préparée par l'accumulation des forces et appliquée aux conditions concrètes de chaque pays. Dirigée par le PCI(maoïste), la Guerre Populaire en Inde résiste avec succès aux attaques de l’ennemi et parvient à s’étendre et grandir. La Guerre Populaire se déroule également aux Philippines sous la direction du Parti Communiste des Philippines, qui défend le maoïsme. Au Pérou, elle continue malgré l’action d’un courant liquidationniste. En Turquie, la lutte révolutionnaire dirigée par les maoïstes avance en accord avec la stratégie de la guerre populaire. Dans d’autres pays, de nouvelles initiatives et avancées sont en préparation.
Nous devons construire et consolider les partis prolétariens pour la révolution, les partis de type nouveau, les partis communistes marxiste-léniniste-maoïste, dans nos pays respectifs, en tenant compte de notre expérience passée et en l'appliquant à la situation actuelle du système impérialiste d'aujourd'hui. La Guerre Populaire en Inde, comme les autres Guerres Populaires, montre que cette voie est possible.
Cela a été clairement exprimé le 24 Novembre 2012 à Hambourg par la grande Conférence Internationale de Soutien à la Guerre Populaire en Inde, où des centaines de représentants d’organisations révolutionnaires et anti-impérialistes et de partis et organisations maoïstes de plus de vingt pays ont appelé à s'unir et à renforcer la lutte des classes dans chaque pays. Ce fut un grand exemple d’internationalisme. Nous devons aller de l’avant pour renforcer encore plus et donner une forme organisationnelle à l’internationalisme prolétarien.
Nous devons poursuivre l'unité internationale des communistes dans le monde vers la construction d’une nouvelle organisation internationale pour lutter ensemble contre l'impérialisme et la réaction et marcher ensemble vers une nouvelle Internationale Communiste, pour le socialisme et le communisme.

Prolétaires et peuples opprimés de tous les pays, unissez-vous!
A bas l'impérialisme et tous ses chiens de garde!
Vive l’internationalisme prolétarien!
Vive la révolution prolétarienne mondiale!

declaracion primero de mayo - spanish

¡LAS MASAS POPULARES QUIEREN DERROCAR A LOS GOBIERNOS CAPITALISTAS E IMPERIALISTAS Y A LOS GOBIERNOS DE SUS SIRVIENTES!
¡LOS PROLETARIOS QUIEREN UNIRSE PARA EL PARTIDO DE LA REVOLUCIÓN!
¡LOS COMUNISTAS APOYAN LAS LUCHAS ANTIIMPERIALISTAS Y DESARROLLAN GUERRAS POPULARES PARA LA REVOLUCIÓN PROLETARIA MUNDIAL!

El imperialismo es “la etapa superior del capitalismo” –una etapa de “parasitismo y decadencia” (Lenin, El Imperialismo, Etapa Superior del Capitalismo”). Ahora es el momento de sepultarlo, lo antes posible. La crisis del capitalismo es como una enfermedad crónica que le atormenta. Crea las bases pata su muerte.
La crisis del capitalismo es, por encima de todo, una crisis de superproducción: “En esas crisis se desata una epidemia social que a cualquiera de las épocas anteriores hubiera parecido absurda e inconcebible: la epidemia de la superproducción. La sociedad se ve retrotraída repentinamente a un estado de barbarie momentánea.” (Marx y Engels, Manifiesto Comunista).
Pero es el momento cuando la burguesía intensifica sus esfuerzos para hacer que los proletarios y las masas paguen por la crisis. Tal y como Marx y Engels escribieron hace más de 150 años en el Manifiesto Comunista: “Las armas con que la burguesía derribó al feudalismo se vuelven ahora contra ella. Y la burguesía no sólo forja las armas que han de darle la muerte, sino que, además, pone en pie a los hombres llamados a manejarlas: estos hombres son los obreros, los proletarios.
Hoy, el proletariado del mundo nunca ha sido tan numeroso. Junto a las masas populares representan al menos el 90% de la población; y este 90% es el que se ve afectado por la crisis y una necesidad de cambio radical en la sociedad. “El movimiento proletario es el movimiento autónomo e independiente de una inmensa mayoría en interés de una mayoría inmensa.” (Ibid).
La crisis financiera del capitalismo global se profundiza y amplía. Los imperialistas se pelean entre ellos para saquear todo tipo de recursos (humanos y materiales) en los países atrasados, además de aumentar la explotación de los trabajadores y la clase media en sus propios países a fin de superar la crisis.
En Europa y los países capitalistas, esto se traduce en la reestructuración de la producción, del comercio y los servicios, que conduce al desplazamiento de producción en países donde los costes laborales es inferior, la destrucción masiva de empleos y la introducción de nuevos y más productivos medios de producción a expensas de la seguridad y salud de los trabajadores. Al mismo tiempo, aumentan los impuestos, caen los salarios y los beneficios se reducen. En general, la intensificación de la crisis implica que “pequeños industriales, comerciantes y rentistas… son absorbidos por el proletariado”. (Ibid)
En países oprimidos por el imperialismo, el proletariado y los pueblos de África, Asia y América Latina están sujetos a los dictados de las potencias imperialistas, que están protegidas por sus perros guardianes; dichas potencias se deshacen de sus perros guardianes cuando dejan de defender o defienden malamente sus intereses. Las potencias imperialistas utilizan la política de “divide y vencerás” y no dudan en intervenir militarmente – tanto para apoyar a regímenes de sus sirvientes o para derrocar a aquellos que no les son favorables –y provocar conflictos étnicos y religiosos para proteger sus intereses y quebrar la resistencia popular a la opresión. Se apoyan en el oscurantismo religioso o el liberalismo laico para mantener por cualquier medio su dominación económica, política e ideológica. Las clases dominantes de estos países, ya sean las potencias emergentes del tercer mundo –China, India, Brasil o Sudáfrica- o los países oprimidos, hacen todo lo posible para asegurar la máxima explotación de la fuerza laboral y acceder y controlar las materias primas en interés del sistema imperialista.
En los países imperialistas y oprimidos, las clases dominantes utilizan como perros guardianes a fuerzas reaccionarias de derechas al igual que a fuerzas reformistas, socialdemócratas y revisionistas que aplican su política de opresión y explotación de los proletarios y las masas. Los sindicatos oficiales están trabajando con los diferentes gobiernos para negociar “medidas de austeridad” y planes de privatización a fin de que los trabajadores se reconcilien con ellos y para detener las luchas que chocan contra los amos y el Estado. La reconciliación permite a los capitalistas fortalecer y continuar su trabajo destructivo minando las conquistas ganadas por la clase obrera a través de un siglo años de luchas.
En los países imperialistas, la derecha más abiertamente reaccionaria al igual que la “izquierda” reformista y socialdemócrata sostienen a través de diversas formas la “identidad nacional”, para utilizarla contra los inmigrantes a fin de fortalecer la división del proletariado y las masas y, de esta manera, abrir el camino al viejo y nuevo fascismo. Muchos partidos y organizaciones populistas, fascistas y neonazis están floreciendo en la fértil tierra cultivada por todas las fuerzas e instituciones políticas tradicionales. La burguesía defiende su sistema e instituciones con la policía del Estado y utilizando también la participación de las masas en las elecciones. Esta es la razón por la cual el proletariado y las masas deben desarrollar el boicot electoral e intensificar la lucha de clases.


LA REBELIÓN SE JUSTIFICA” (MAO TSETUNG)
Enfrentados a la crisis, los proletarios –los trabajadores de las ciudades y el campo- se están rebelando. Trabajadores de las fábricas amenazadas con ser cerradas se están movilizando contra los despidos, la degradación de las condiciones de trabajo, los recortes salariales y el aumento de las horas de trabajo, porque no quieren pagar la crisis. Los campesinos y trabajadores agrícolas resisten y a veces ocupan tierras. Las masas se movilizan contra los desahucios de casas, los aumentos de impuestos, los ataques contra el medio ambiente, el desmantelamiento de los servicios públicos, los ataques contra los derechos sindicales y los derechos de los jóvenes, las mujeres, etc.
Estas luchas están teniendo lugar en todos los países del mundo, como las de los trabajadores del automóvil y la metalurgia en Francia, Bélgica, Alemania e Italia; de los mineros en España, mientras que las masas están luchando contra los desahucios de casas, y las grandes luchas de los estudiantes en Canadá, al igual que en otros países, contra los ataques a la educación y los aumentos de tasas.
Y, además, tienen lugar por ejemplo en la India donde centenares de millones de trabajadores se declararon en huelga, o en Sudáfrica, donde los mineros se rebelaron contra las clases dominantes blanca y negra que explotan y oprimen a los trabajadores, o en Brasil, donde los campesinos pobres y sin tierra están ocupando las tierras en que trabajan.
En los países árabes, particularmente en Túnez y Egipto, pese a las maniobras de los imperialistas para proteger sus intereses y apoyar a los nuevos perros guardianes; pese al hecho de que estos perros guardianes se ocultan bajo la máscara de la religión a fin de explotar a los trabajadores y al pueblo, para suprimir la justa rebelión antes de que se convierta en revolución, las masas están encontrando su camino y aprendiendo de sus errores, para una auténtica revolución de Nueva Democracia, que no puede lograrse sin la dirección de la clase obrera; esto plantea cuestiones tales como la estrategia revolucionaria, la lucha armada y la construcción del partido de vanguardia.
Los imperialistas y sus intervenciones no son capaces de detener y extinguir las luchas antiimperialistas en el mundo -desde Palestina hasta Iraq, Afganistán y América Latina-, ni contra las nuevas intervenciones imperialistas en Libia, Siria o Malí.


¡NO SE PUEDE HACER LA REVOLUCIÓN DE MANERA PACÍFICA!
El mundo se encuentra sumido en una gran tormenta; en las filas del proletariado y las masas, la conciencia ideológica opera poco a poco o por medio de saltos, con avances y retrocesos, al igual que la conciencia sobre la crisis y la naturaleza del imperialismo, la necesidad de derrocarlo y construir una nueva sociedad sobre las cenizas de la vieja.
En esta nueva ola de lucha y resistencia debemos apoyar y fortalecer la lucha por la liberación de los pueblos y por una nueva democracia, hacia el socialismo y el comunismo. Este es el contexto en que una potencial nueva oleada de la revolución proletaria mundial se desarrolla y emerge. Tiene como sus puntos de referencia y ancla estratégico las guerras populares dirigidas por partidos maoístas.
La Guerra Popular es la forma más avanzada para hacer la revolución, por lo que debemos apoyarla en cada país en que está siendo organizada, preparada para acumular fuerzas y aplicada a las condiciones concretas de cada país. Dirigida por el Partido Comunista de la India (Maoísta), la Guerra Popular en la India está resistiendo con éxito los ataques del enemigo y está logrando extenderse y crecer. La Guerra Popular también se está desarrollando en Filipinas bajo la dirección del Partido Comunista de Filipinas, que defiende el maoísmo. En Perú continúa pese a la acción de una corriente liquidacionista. En Turquía, la lucha revolucionaria dirigida por los maoístas avanza conforme a la estrategia de la guerra popular. En otros países, están en curso nuevas iniciativas y avances.
Debemos construir y consolidar partidos proletarios para la revolución, partidos de nuevo tipo, partidos comunistas marxistas-leninistas-maoístas, en nuestros respectivos países, teniendo en cuenta nuestra experiencia pasada y aplicándola a las actuales condiciones del sistema imperialista hoy día.
Esto se expresó claramente el 24 de Noviembre de 2012 en Hamburgo en la gran Conferencia Internacional de Apoyo a la Guerra Popular en la India, en que centenares de representantes de organizaciones revolucionarias y antiimperialistas y de partidos y organizaciones maoístas de más de veinte países han llamado a unirse y fortalecer la lucha de clases en cada país. Fue un gran ejemplo de internacionalismo. Debemos avanzar para fortalecer aún más y dar una forma organizativa al internacionalismo proletario.
Debemos proseguir la unidad internacional de los comunistas del mundo hacia la construcción de una nueva organización internacional para luchar juntos contra el imperialismo y la reacción y marchar juntos hacia una nueva Internacional Comunista, por el socialismo y el comunismo.

¡Proletarios y pueblos oprimidos del mundo entero, uníos!
¡Abajo el imperialismo y todos sus perros guardianes!
¡Viva el internacionalismo proletario!
¡Viva la revolución proletaria mundial!

CA polls won’t resolve crisis: Baidhya
KATHMANDU: The Central Committee of CPN-Maoist continued to debate today on the political paper presented by party Chairman Mohan Baidhya. According to CC member Suresh Ale Magar, Baidhya has maintained in the paper that taking part in the Constituent Assembly elections in the existing situation would not give the country an outlet.
He said the party still believed that the current problems could be resolved through all-party consensus. “It was the four forces that failed the CA. All-party consensus is, therefore, necessary to resolve current problems,” Ale Magar said. The paper accused the major forces of rendering the Interim Constitution defunct. The CPN-M says it was an unconstitutional to amend the Constitution in the name of elections.
According to another Central Committee member Mahendra Paswan, the paper has concluded that the parliamentary system has failed in the country, and that it was a duty of revolutionary party like the CPN-M to guide a new kind of revolution. Paswan said party leaders were of the view that a new revolution was necessary to ensure the rights of the marginalised communities and the poor.
Ale Magar said the government might attempt to use force against disgruntled parties, but that would only worsen the country’s problems. “Government repressed us in 1995 and we fought a 10-year insurgency. Fighting a guerilla war when the king and party was not easy. Yet we fought the war. Now it’s a weak government and there are many contradictions within the four forces. If they tried to use force against us, they will face a very bad situation,” Ale Magar added. Over 20 members spoke in today’s CC meeting.
CC members overseeing various party wings, including Limbuwan, Kirat, Magarat and Tharuwan state representatives spoke in the meeting today. “The government is not willing to bring dissident parties on board or else they would have addressed our demands,” Paswan said, adding, “It seems that the government is preparing to use force against us. If that happened, we will counter it.” Party Spokesperson Pampha Bhusal said the meeting was still going on. She said the CC would come up with its future strategies after reviewing its past works.

CPN-Maoist to disrupt election process
KATHMANDU, April 25: The CPN-Maoist has reiterated that it would not participate in the election to the Constituent Assembly but disrupt the electoral process. Maoist of the speakers at the extended meeting of the central committee of the party said formation of present government was unconstitutional and it was not judicious in the election to be held by this government.

According to her, the leaders at the meeting supported the political proposal presented by General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa and Chairman of the advisory committee Krishna Das Shrestha and stressed on forging a nationalist front. The meeting unanimously passed the report presented by Chairman with some suggestions. The party has reiterated that it would thwart the electoral process as distribution of voters´ identity card and citizenship certificate.
Also, the party organization would be strengthened from the central to village level. Spokesperson Bhushal further said the agitation would be intensified by keeping in centre the issue of nationality, and shun talks with government until the 25 point agreement on removal of difficulties issued on Chait 1 was cancelled. It is the first central committee meeting of the party after the extension of the central committee member to 151

Revolutionary forces must redouble its efforts to advance the people’s war to a higher phase-NDFP-Mindanao



km
On the occasion of the 40th founding anniversary of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), we greet with utmost joy all revolutionary allied organizations, all 18 of them, allies and the entire revolutionary forces for having effectively and enthusiastically carried out the united front policies and programs in advancing the people’s democratic revolution.
Through the political leadership of the Communist Party, hundreds of thousands of organized masses in millions of mass bases in the whole of Mindanao have been aroused, organized, expanded and mobilized to advance their class and sectoral interests along the national democratic line. In the painstaking process of undertaking united front work for armed struggle, many have selflessly offered their lives for the people’s democratic revolution.
We salute all revolutionary martyrs among the ranks of the Party members and cadres, Red fighters and commanders, basic masses and the middle forces. Since its inception in 1973, the NDFP and all its allied organizations have paved the way for the establishment of organs of political power — the people’s democratic government — in the countryside. Numerous people’s government have already been established at the barrio level, and even some at the municipal level. The US-Aquino regime’s Oplan Bayanihan has sorely failed to stop the continued widening and strengthening of Red political power across numerous provinces in Mindanao.
Through our firm resolve in waging agrarian revolution as the main content of the people’s democratic revolution and as the key link to our mass work in the countryside, the membership of revolutionary mass organizations has rapidly increased; the anti-feudal movement in the countryside has also surged to carry forward agrarian revolution, raising the level from the inter-barangay to the municipal and inter-municipal up to the regional mass movement.
This movement aims to weaken and topple down the feudal power and influence in Mindanao and to ultimately emancipate the peasantry from feudal and semi-feudal exploitation. The anti-feudal united front has been steeled and expanded by the widespread mass actions demanding for increase in wages of farm workers, increase in prices of farm produce, the elimination of usury, the lowering of land rent and farm implements and agricultural machineries. In many towns in Mindanao, this has already benefitted hundreds of thousands of peasants and their families.
Units of the New People’s Army (NPA) are already positioned in strategic areas in more or less 250 municipalities and more than 2000 barrios in Mindanao. Consequently, the NPA has raised the level of guerrilla warfare in launching simultaneous, coordinated and widespread tactical offensives against fascist enemy forces, mobilizing many Red troops at the same time, and in defending the hard-earned victories of the masses of peasants and workers. These tactical offensives have been aimed also to deliver big blows against imperialist multinationals, such as large-scale mining and agri-business plantations, making them pay for decades of plunder of natural resources and the environment, the oppression and exploitation of the people of Mindanao, and bring to a halt their continued aggressive expansion.
In carrying out the requisites of revolutionary united front principles, the NDFP in various levels in Mindanao has endeavoured tirelessly to relate with numerous allies among the national bourgeoisie as well as among enlightened members of the ruling class. We engage in practical cooperation with these classes and a number of candidates running for public office this election period based on our revolutionary united front policy. In spite of recently hitting a snag on account of the deeply regrettable and unintentional incident that befell the convoy of Gingoog City Mayor Ruth de Lara-Guingona, our united front efforts in Mindanao will continue to advance.
Bourgeois elections are once again upon us. The NDFP in Mindanao views this as another exercise of rival factions of the ruling class to entertain the poor, distracting them from the socio-economic crisis, and to legitimize their hold on power. Despite the US-Aquino regime’s rhetoric of “clean elections,” unscrupulous election manoeuvrings, trapo terrorism, bogus surveys, vote buying, and cheating through the pre-programmed hocus-PCOS are ever present. The NDFP –Mindanao has stressed to all politicians to abide by the revolutionary policies on elections.
In entering Red territories, politicians must coordinate with concerned revolutionary territorial commands and committees in order to present their political platform and programs, and to ensure the orderly conduct of their campaigns. In so doing, they must avoid bringing with them firearms and armed escorts, except when given special permission by the local NPA unit. In the entire election period, the NPA put up checkpoints and roadblocks across Mindanao to enforce this policy. The NDFP in Mindanao resolutely calls for the resumption of the peace talks between the NDFP and the GPH and for both panels to immediately return to the negotiating table.
If we recall, it was the reactionary Philippine government under Benigno Aquino III which arbitrarily terminated the peace talks because, it claimed, the NDFP’s demands “are impossible to meet.” One of the NDFP’s major demands is the inclusion in the talking points genuine agrarian reform, national industrialization, human rights, the respect for the right to self-determination and other substantial points.
The GPH however intentionally bolted from the peace negotiations because, apart from having no interest at all in engaging in the discussion of the substantial peace agenda, it only desperately wants to step up the brutal Oplan Bayanihan military suppression campaign, hinged on the entirely false notion that it can actually decimate the revolutionary movement.
In fact, the GPH recently deployed 500 AFP troops from Luzon to Mindanao to further attempt to put a stop to the intensifying armed revolution in Mindanao. Clearly, despite of the recently signed Framework on the Bangsamoro, the GPH’s much-vaunted peace agreement with the MILF appears to be stymied, with the former compelling the latter to fast track the decommissioning of the BIAF.
On the other hand, the US-Aquino regime has shown its rabidly fascist nature against the Moro people by siding with the Malaysian government in the arrest and even the merciless killing of the Tausugs and other Moros loyal to the Sulu Sultanate, which is presently headed by Jamalul Kiram III. Amid the chronic economic crisis in the country, the mass movement of workers, urban poor, students and other professionals in the cities continue to widen and grow stronger to demand for better wages, benefits, livelihood and social services.
The hundreds of thousands of victims of typhoons Sendong and Pablo strongly demand for serious and sustained rehabilitation from the government. Moreover, the anti-imperialist struggle is growing stronger against the escalation of US troop’s presence in the Philippines. Under this context, the NDFP-Mindanao calls on all revolutionary forces to redouble its effort at building revolutionary bases by way of increasing membership for revolutionary mass organizations, launch anti-feudal struggle more aggressively, and establish more organs of political power in the countryside.
On the part of NPA, it is important to accelerate building more platoons, and raise the level of guerrilla warfare in launching numerous coordinated, simultaneous and widespread tactical offensives based on an ever widening and deepening mass base, carrying the people’s war forward from the strategic defensive towards the strategic stalemate stage.
live the struggling masses!
Long live the National Democratic Front of the Philippines!
Long live the People’s Democratic Revolution!
