May day Joint Statement
Drafted by Maoist Communist Party Manipur
In the present world situation while imperialism and other reactionaries are trying to overcome their crises and impose their order, they are facing more and more problems. The three major contradictions existing today are the contradictions between imperialism and the oppressed nations and peoples, between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat in the imperialist countries and among the imperialist countries. Among them the contradiction between imperialism and the oppressed nations and peoples is the principal contradiction. This is intensifying even more and revolution is the main trend. There is no real answer within capitalism to this unending crisis, the solution for which can only come through a proletarian Revolution.
Today, the time has come for a new initiative, to explain the causes for the crisis, draw lessons from past experiences, sketch for a bright future of the new generation and March forward to the success of proletarian Revolution.
The world proletariat and the fighting people must learn lessons from the failures in building socialism; and must continue the revolution until the establishment of communism world-wide with redoubled conviction and confidence. We must realize that the defeats are temporary in the zig-zag course of the protracted new democratic and world socialist revolution which will advance by destroying the imperialist chain. No power in the world can stop this irresistible trend of ultimate doom of imperialism and victory of socialism.
The Great Revolutionary Peoples war in India and Philippines waged by the Heroic comrades assured the success of proletarian Revolution and triumph of Protracted Peoples War. The brave Peruvian and Turkey comrades are still struggling for a great leap. Maoists Movement in Bangladesh, Manipur, Latin America and other Europe countries are also have bright future. Anti Imperialist and National Liberation Group in Palestine, Egypt, Kurdistan, South East Asian Sub Continent and others countries are also fighting against Imperialism. Comrade Mao stated that “In the final analysis national struggle is a matter of class struggle.” National oppression in essence falls upon all classes comprising a nation except a small section of exploiters directly or indirectly in league with imperialism and the oppressors. But it is the masses of toiling people particularly the peasantry who bear the largest burden of the oppression of a nationality. National liberation struggle must be handled from the strategic viewpoint that it is an inseparable part of the proletarian Revolution.
The revolutionary Maoist forces, Anti imperialist forces of the world should stand by each other, build solidarity movements, and help and learn from each other’s experiences. Unity of all the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist and anti-imperialist forces will undoubtedly weaken imperialism further.
On this May Day we the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist and anti-imperialist forces of the world stand together and affirmed to continue the revolution until the establishment of communism.
