in a period of crisis of the imperialist system and an upsurge of people's rebellions and struggles.
in 2012 a Special Meeting of Parties and Organisations of the RIM was successfully concluded. In the midst of the rebellious assaults of the masses on the inhuman conditions in which they are forced to live, a bold initiative has been taken to build anew an international Maoist unity as an organised force. This holds out great promise for the struggling people of the world.
The Special Meeting (SM) has correctly identified the revisionism of the Bob Avakian’s post-MLM 'new synthesis' variety in the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA and the Prachanda-Bhattarai variety in the United Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) as the immediate ideological-political factors that led to the current crisis and collapse of the RIM. Going beyond this, the Special Meeting advanced some preliminary views on summing up the RIM experience, noting the positive and negative lessons of its organisational structures and methods of functioning. The task of convening an international conference in order to once again establish a Maoist international organisation has been taken up. This should have as broad a representation of Maoist parties and organisations as possible.
In its evaluation of the world situation, the Special Meeting has correctly noted, “a potential new wave of the world proletarian revolution develops and emerges, with the people's wars led by Maoist parties as its reference points and strategic anchor. The realisation of this potential ultimately depends on how successful the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist parties are in fulfilling their revolutionary tasks at the national and international levels. The pooling of their understanding and experience and the development of their capacity to take a united revolutionary message to the rebellious masses all over the world have decisive importance.”
