Declaration of class solidarity in support of the Maoist Communist Party in the French State
IV. Meeting of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Parties and Organizations in Europe
Forward in the determined mass protests in the French State!
Reconstruct the Communist Party in midst of the storms of class struggle!
“The truth of Marxism may contain thousands of principles, but in the end they can be summed up in one sentence: It‘s right to rebel!”
– Chairman Mao Zedong
The long lasting stormy protests of the working class and the masses in the French State are outstandingly bearing witness to these mighty words of Chairman Mao Zedong. As a forceful inspiration of the oppressed and exploited in whole Europe, they show with plenty of vehemence and strength, that the revolution is the main tendency in the era in which we are nowadays and the imperialists are being forced more and more to react on this tendency. The old Europe, and especially the French State as one of the oldest bourgeois nations and most important imperialists, in which the bourgeoisie imagined itself to be in a stage of relatively inner stability, faces today again bigger class disputes. Struggles which clearly bring the deep crisis of imperialism to the surface and which intensify this crises even more. The imperialists have to show more and more openly their bankruptcy, their rottenness, while the masses push to rebellion and forge ahead more and more significantly. The obvious crises of French imperialism, as one of the most important imperialists in Western Europe and one of the main exploiters of the peoples and nations in Africa, and the massive and the ongoing increasing mass protests against it, are a clear signal to the antiimperialist and revolutionary movement worldwide. Still it is a spark, a spontaneous eruption of justified rage and hatred against exploitation and oppression. However, this spark can set off a wildfire and with that renew and tighten the closing of ranks between the proletarian revolutionaries in the French State and the by French imperialism oppressed and bleeding people, nations and colonies in Africa. With full clarity, the rebellion in France shows the necessity of firmly tanking up the slogan “Always put Proletarian Internationalism in the first place!” as a fundamental principle of the communists.
The workers, youth and big parts of the peoples masses in the French State are rebelling, they decisively struggle against the growing attacks of the French bourgeoisie, which wants to put the last of its economical and political crisis more and more aggressively on their shoulders. Contrary to all tries of intervention of the reactionaries, lackeys of the bourgeoisie, revisionists and opportunists, it arises that they can not calm down the rebellion of the masses in the long term, or to guide it into the wrong path of class cooperation. The more vigorous the communist forces strive for leadership in midst the mass struggles, the more pressure is on the revisionists, and they are forced to express themselves more aggressively and prove themselves as sworn alleys of reaction.
The mass protests show in broad parts a very combative character, which forces French imperialism to openly show their reactionary and repressive face. Thousands were arrested in the protests, further thousands got injured and a few got assassinated. Hence, against the expectations of the reaction, the protests spread and the masses show their strong will even more, that they are ready to fight. The justified militancy of the masses is only a first just answer on the crimes of imperialism!
Mostly there, where the masses are guided by the leadership of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, the struggle could be advanced confirming to the necessity of the development of leadership. It is part of the screamingly necessary struggle for the reconstruction of the Communist Party in the French State, a party with a great and glorious history, part of the initiation and development of people’s war in an imperialist country*.
The vanguard, which today takes the herculean task of reconstruction, the comrades of the Maoist Communist Party in the French State, stand midst of huge mass protests. We express our great confidence and trust on the big steps they reached in this struggle until today and will do in the future! Every day they prove that they serve the people from the bottom of their heart, guided by the almighty proletarian ideology, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, principally Maoism, resisting repression and doing everything to give the glorious Communist Party back in the hands of the proletariat! Our comrades in the French State develop an important work in service of the Proletarian World Revolution, hold high proletarian internationalism in solidarity with the oppressed people and nations of French imperialism and therefore give an important contribution for the international struggle of the people and nations against imperialism!
We confirm our solidarity with our struggling comrades in the French State! We take it as our proletarian internationalist duty, to close the ranks tightly in the joint struggle against imperialism! We take it as our duty as communists, to propagate their important struggle for the reconstruction of the Communist Party, to defend their advances and to learn from their example of reconstruction in midst of great mass protests in the heart of a furious imperialist! We confirm our common intention to realize actions of class solidarity, of proletarian internationalism, with the proletariat in the French State and its vanguard struggling for reconstruction and to spread the glowing spark in our respective countries.
Forward with the reconstruction of the Maoist Communist Party in the French State!
Solidarity with the struggling masses in France! Death to imperialism!
Long live proletarian internationalism!
